MERCATOR, Gerard (1512-1594).
Duisburg, 1595., 1595. A SUPERB MAP OF ASIA FROM MERCATOR'S FUNDAMENTAL ATLAS DEMONSTRATING EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION AND QUALITY OF ORIGINAL COLOR. Copper-plate engravings with original hand color, from Mercator's Atlantis Pars Altera atlas of 1595. For nearly sixty years, during the most important and exciting period in the story of modern mapmaking, Gerard Mercator was the supreme cartographer, his name, second only to Ptolemy, synonymous with forms of map projection still in use today. Although not the inventor of this type of projection, he was the first to apply it to navigational charts in such a form that compass bearings could be plotted on charts in straight lines, thereby providing sailors with a solution to an age-old problem of navigation at sea. His influence transformed land surveying and his research and calculations lead him to break away from Ptolemy's conception of the size and outline of the continents. This drastically reduced the longitudinal length of Europe and Asia and altered the shape of the Old World as visualized in the early 16th century. Unlike the work of Abraham Ortelius, a contemporary (and equally celebrated) cartographer, Mercator's maps are original. Ortelius did what most of the atlas-makers of our time are engaged in: the reduction and generalization of already existing maps. Gerard Mercator, with his sense that scientific work should be original and new, checked the current knowledge of the earth's topography against its fundamental sources and drew maps in an original manner. After his death in 1594 it was left to Mercator's son Rumold t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mercator, Michael (c. 1567-1614)
Duisburg, 1595. THE FIRST MAP TO INDICATE THE EXISTENCE OF THE GREAT LAKES Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 171/8" x 207/8" (Amsterdam, 1613-1630) References: Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 111 The discovery of America marked a watershed in the development of cartography. Until Columbus' historic 1492 voyage, Europe stood on the periphery of the civilized world and as he himself was to note in the dedication of his published log to Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain, "Your highnesses ordained that I should not go eastward by land in the usual manner but by the western way which no one about whom we have positive information has ever followed." Each succeeding decade following the first New World discoveries created its own revolution of knowledge and led to momentous advances in mapmaking. The Mercator family of cartographers produced some of the most important maps of the sixteenth century of which the present map is but one. Gerard Mercator, the patriarch of the family, is famed for the development of Mercator's projection, first demonstrated on his world map of 1569, which allowed any compass course to appear as a straight line. His next project was the creation of a complete world 'Atlas', the first publication to be called by that name. This occupied him until his death in 1594 and the unfinished atlas was left in the care of his son Rumold. The task of the American map, America sive India Nova..., was given to Gerard's grandson Michael and it is the only known map … [Click Below for Full Description]

Der hübsche Einband mit spanischen Kanten etwas gebogen. Insgesamt schönes Exemplar. - Rare and early work printed by the Elzevir family that later became one of the most important publishers in the 17th century. This is the second printing of the preserved fragments of the poet Ennius, whose work was used to teach young Romans Latin until Vergil took his place as the greatest author and stilistic ideal. The commentary of Merula in this ediiton is valuable until today. - Title with old stamp on verso, few pages with old underlining, binding somewhat bent or rubbed but altogether a nice copy.
