16863 LUDOLPHUS DE SUCHEN, de Terra Sancta et Itinere Iherosolimitano et de Statu ejus et aliis mirabilibus que in mari conspiciuntur videlicet Mediterraneo, sm. folio, Editio Princeps, fine large copy in boards, VERY RARE, £21.



(typis H. Eggesteyn), s. a. (circ. 1470) the same, sm. folio, old red morocco, from Croft's and Beckford's libraries, £15. 15s (about 1470) There is no date, place, or printer's name to the above rare volume, but the types are those of Eggesteyn, who printed two editions almost at the same time, each on thirty-four leaves, but the first as above in long lines, and the second in double columns.

Ludolf, Rector or Vicar of Suchen, sometimes called Petrus de Suchen, wrote in 1350 this account of his Oriental travels during five years, 1336-41; saying that, as many others who had made one short pilgrimage found plenty to write about, so he with his long experience of Eastern residence might relate a little. It is a narrative of considerable interest, as the reverend author seems to have been a very observant traveller.

Parisiis, Rob. Gourmont pro Oliverio Senant, s. a. (cir. 1505) The most curious part of this little volume is the appendix of additional pieces relating to India, which are certainly derived in part from narratives of the recent Portuguese expedition.

16866 TUCHER (Hans) Reysz [gen Jherusalem zu dem heyligen Grab, etc.], sm. 4to. calf neat, £8.


Nuremberg, 1483

This pilgrim is indispensable says Tobler in his list of authorities on the Holy Land. His companions were Otto Spiegel and Sebald Ritter of Nürnberg. -On leaf fiii in the blank space left for a capital Z, an early possessor painted the capital in blue, with his name Hans Feuer Monac' in white upon it. There is also inserted at the beginning an early engraving of the Crucifixion.

Eerhaert Rewich van Vtrecht, in Mentzs, 1488

This pilgrimage was made in 1483 by John, the young Count of Solms, in company with Bernhard von Breytenbach, Deacon of Mentz, and the Knight Philip of Bicken. They became associated with nine other lords, Johannes Lazinus, an ecclesiastical dignitary from Transylvania, Felix Schmidt, a Dominican of Ulm, Paul and Thomas, two Minorites skilled in tongues, and Erhard Reuwich, an artist from Utrecht, who made all the designs which adorn the book. The chief authorship is ascribed in the book itself to Breytenbach (hujus operis auctor principalis), and there is no mention made of Martin Roth the Dominican to whom modern critics assign the work. The Count of Solms died at Alexandria. The story of this journey will always be interesting: it is one of the first printed books of travel; it describes minutely the condition of the Holy Land, and the customs of the various races and sects that inhabited it. Moreover, the alphabets and characters of different languages, including the Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, Ethiopic, etc. which appear in this work, were the first examples of their kind. In short, the work possesses interest for every kind of collector.

HUEN, folio, woodcuts, but wanting map and the engraved views,
fine and very large copy in oak boards, VERY RARE, £5. 58

Lyon, Topie et Heremberck, 1488

Le Huen started on his pilgrimage in 1487, along with Monseigneur de la Mourinière, the Bishop of Cambray, and others; and visited the same places as Breydenbach. The work of description and illustration having been so well done already, he took the liberty of using Breydenbach's text and copying Reuwich's designs.
