      Leiden, Johann Maire, 1640 1639 - 3 parts in one vol, 4to (192 x 144 mm), pp [iv] 267; 84 [iv], with 4 engraved plates on two inserted leaves; [viii] 104 [8], with 4 engraved plates on 4 inserted leaves; very faint trace of marginal waterstain to some gatherings, overall a very good copy, in contemporary yapped Dutch vellum, a third medical work bound in at end (see below). £35,000Second complete edition (first 1628) of Harvey's classic, the single most important and famous medical book ever published, containing Harvey's discovery and experimental proof of the circulation of the blood, which created a revolution in physiology comparable to the Copernican revolution in astronomy. This is the earliest edition that collectors could reasonably expect to obtain. This edition includes the attacks on Harvey by Parisanus and Primrose, and the third edition of Aselli's classic on the discovery of lacteal vessels (first Milan 1627).Parisanus had published his refutation of Harvey in 1635, and included the bulk but not the entirety of Harvey's text. Maire restored these passages, and included the illustrations, and also added Primrose's attack (Animadversiones, 1630). He also took the opportunity, as he discusses in the Ad lectorem, to publish another medical classic, Aselli's De lactibus, and the two are usually found together, as above.Bound at the end is Daniel Beckher, Medicus microcosmus seu spagyria microcosmi, Leiden, Jacob Maire, 1633 (Krivatsky 1011).Provenance: inscription on front free endleaf 'Henricus Lubaeus Bergoz.

        Annotations Upon the Five Bookes of Moses, the Booke of the Psalmes, and the Song of Songs, or Canticles. Wherein the Hebrew Words and Sentences, are compared with, and explained by the Greeke and Chaldee versions, and other Records and Monuments of the Hebrews: But chiefly, by conference with the holy Scriptures .

      Printed by M. Parsons for John Bellamie, London 1639 - Three volumes, complete Small folio. much later black cloth, lettered in gilt. Each "Book" has its own title page illustrated with a wood cut. With many annotations in margins, in one place half page of annotations inserted, some ink underlinings. Henry Ainsworth (1571Ð1622 or 1623), leader of the separatist congregation at Amsterdam, and controversialist, was born at Pleasington in 1571. According to Baines and Abram, his father, Lawrence Ainsworth, who married Dorothy, daughter of Thomas Grimshaw, of Clayton, was one of the original governors of Blackburn grammar school, which was founded in 1567. Here, it is conjectured, Henry received the earlier part of his education. He was left an orphan at the age of thirteen. He is said to have proceeded to the university of Cambridge; but his name is not to be found in the ÔAthen¾ Cantabrigienses.' Ainsworth was a fine type of the Elizabethan puritanÑlearned, sincere, earnest, and uncompromising. He attached himself to those who were styled ÔBrownists,' who, under the name of ÔIndependents,' afterwards played so important a part in English history, and who were the ancestors of the ÔCongregationalists' and other free churches of the present time. Their essential distinction was the claim that each church or congregation should be a religious republic, regulating its own affairs in entire independence of state control, whether episcopal or presbyterian. A vigorous persecution was directed against these sectaries, and their founder is said eventually to have reverted to the church of England; but some of his followers went into exile rather than recognise the right of the secular power to dictate in such a matter. Ainsworth entered into the service of a bookseller in Amsterdam as a porter about 1593. He, together with Francis Johnson, founded an independent church, and in 1596 was the author, wholly or in part, of the ÔConfession of Faith of the People called Brownists.' The task of organising the new church was not an easy one. Objects of persecution at home and of suspicion in exile, they added to the difficulties of the situation by internal dissension. After many efforts at reconciliation on the part of Ainsworth, he and his friends finally withdrew in December 1610, and the scoffers were soon able to point to the two congregations, whom they styled respectively Franciscan Brownists and Ainsworthian Brownists. Ainsworth was now minister for twelve years. This was a busy time; for, in addition to the work of the pastoral office, he wrote a lengthy series of controversial and exegetical works.ÔThe Trying out of the Truth, begun and prosequuted in certain letters and passages between John Aynsworth and Henry Aynsworth: the one pleading for, the other against, the present religion of the Church of Rome. This is an interesting memorial of the religious controversy of the Elizabethan age. John Ainsworth, who had abjured Anglicanism, and was imprisoned in London as a recusant, put forth a challenge to a written debate, and invited Henry Ainsworth to notice this cartel. Four letters by the disputants were addressed to each other, and in the published volume Henry Ainsworth ends with a short reply. The discussion extended from 1609 to 1613. It has been said that John and Henry were brothers, but of this there is no evidence. The letters on the whole are remarkable for the earnestness and yet friendly spirit of the disputants in an age when religious controversy was apt to be bitterly personal.Before his death Ainsworth for a time left Amsterdam and revisited Ireland, but returned to his city of exile, where he died late in 1622 or early in 1623 - a puritans mind. Some covers rubbed at corners and lower edge, two first title pages lined with rag paper with some missing paper towards bottom, first leaf of text with "slit" lower 1-1/2 of gutter, a few leaves repaired in margins, some browning throughout.

        Sigilla Comitum Flandriae et Inscriptiones Diplomatum ab iis editorum cum expositione historica.

      Jan van den Kerckhove, Bruges 1639 - (6) ff., 308 pp., (48) ff., engraved half page map of Flanders, engraved succession ¿tree¿ of Flemish Counts, engraved key to heraldry, and some 300 engravings of seals. Bound in contemporary vellum, title in ink on spine, ties intact. Minor handsoiling to covers, ownership inscription excised at foot of title with repair not affecting imprint, inkstain on Aa4 not touching image; some edge wear to first few leaves, a few small marginal tears; generally very good. Rare first edition Olivier de Vrée¿s (1596-1652) compendium of seals of the Counts of Flanders, a volume notable both for its antiquarian rigor ¿ the work remains a standard reference on the subject ¿ and for its some 300 copperplate engravings meticulously cataloguing the development of seals from the establishment of Flanders as a country in the ninth century (the 878 A.D. seal of Count Baldinus) to the time of the book¿s publication (the seals of Philip IV). Wax sigilla, impressed using a unique engraved metal matrix, were specific to individuals or institutions and used to certify official documents such as title deeds. Seals attracted the same sort of antiquarian study as coins ¿ with which they were often collected and displayed ¿ owing to their value as witnesses to ancient languages, history, art, and politics. Nor was the study of seals without real world importance during the seventeenth century, when reference to centuries-old documents could spark or halt the redrawing of European borders. The illustrations of the Sigilla Comitum Flandriae are profuse and of the highest technical quality. Executed by two father-son teams, Samuel & Adriaen Lommelin and François Schelhaver père et fils, the 300 engravings of seals are at once faithful to the wax artifacts they depict and even improve upon these models: Several specimens of exactly the same design but differing in size from each other by only a few millimeters are dutifully reproduced in separate engravings, while the fine detail of many engravings (especially the later examples) far surpasses that found in the seals themselves or even the engraved matricies with which they were impressed. The Sigilla Comitum Flandriae also contains a fine map of Flanders labeled with ancient toponyms, a depiction of the tomb slab of Gilles the Norman (d. 1227), a ¿key¿ to help the reader identify coats of arms, and a tree of the succession of Flemish Counts, the latter with city views of Bruges and Ghent. Dutch and French editions of the Sigilla Comitum Flandriae followed in 1640 and 1641, but with engravings printed separately and not integrated into the textblock as in the present first edition. OCLC locates United States copies at the Newberry Library, the National Gallery, Wisconsin, Emory, Yale, Harvard, Minnesota, and Michigan. * Saffroy 40989; Matagne W-40; STCV 6687928; Biographie national VI, col. 22-24.

      Greece: Amsterdam Janssonius, Jan 1639. Copper engraved map of the Peloponnesus by Henriicu Hondius, published by Janssonius in his "Le Nouveau Theatre Du Monde Ou Nouvel Atlas " Vol 3. Original old colour; French text to verso. The map shows Attica and surrounding areas with the isthmus of Corinth and the island of Euboa with unusual and exclusive full wash colour to sea. Historiated initial to verso with old color Strap work title cartouche to upper right; Hondius' name engraved within the Gulf of Corinth The map first appears in 1636 in vol 3 of the "Atlas Novus." Good dark impression; spotting mainly to blank margins. Henricus Hondius son of Jodocus Hondius I(1563-1612) who was one of the foremost map engravers of his day; he worked for many Dutch publishers and was also employed by the English map- and print-sellers, Sudbury and Humble, to engrave the maps for John Speed's "The Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britaine", published in 1612. Jodicus Hondius I bought the copperplates of Mercator's "Atlas Sive Cosmographicae ..." at the auction of Gerard Jr.'s effects in 1604. He added another forty maps, including new maps of the continents and important regional maps of the Americas, before publishing a new edition of the "Atlas ..." in 1606 that was in direct competition with Ortelius' "Theatrum". As many of Hondius' maps were more up-to-date, the Mercator-Hondius "Atlas ..." effectively superseded Ortelius' "Theatrum". Henricus with his brother Jodocus II took over the business from their mother and from 1619 the "Atlas ..." was published under the Henricus Hondius imprint until 1633 when his brother-in-law's name and imprint, that of Johannes Janssonius, also started appearing .After 1636 the name was changed to "Atlas Novus" with Janssonius being responsible, in the main, for its publication. [I.C.Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici Volume II, pp.136-145.] Johannes Janssonius (approx. 1588-1664) came from a family of printers and publishers and learned the book printing trade at an early age. In 1612 he married the daughter of Jodocus Hondius and thus became a member of one of the most important publishing families in the Netherlands. During the 1630s he went into partnership with his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius and published more editions of the Mercator/Hondius atlases with the addition of the name Jansson. He grew their publishing house in the fields of geography and cartography and published newly compiled world, sea and city atlases, always competing with the Blaeu publishing house.

        La Moree iadis Peloponnese. "Morea olim Peloponnesus

      Greece: Amsterdam Janssonius, Jan 1639. Copper engraved map of the Peloponnesus by Mercator, published by Janssonius in his "Le Nouveau Theatre Du Monde Ou Nouvel Atlas " Vol 3. Original old colour; French text to verso. The map from the plate of Mercator comes from Jansonnius "Nouvel Atlas" with unusual and exclusive full wash colour to sea. Historiated initial and decorative tail piece to verso with old color Small title cartouche and scale; ships and large fish to sea. Good dark impression; light toning; spotting to blank margins and dampstain lower left corner; split [55mm] and short tear[10mm ] at lower centre fold repaired with archival tape to verso. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) Originally a student of philosophy came under the influence of Gemma Frisius, the founder of the Belgian school of Geography, and became interested in mathematics - both in the theory and the practical application. With these skills he soon became an expert in land surveying and cartography, as well as a skilled engraver. His first maps were published in 1537 (Palestine), and 1538 (a map of the world), although his main occupation at this time was globe-making. He later moved to Duisburg, in Germany, where he produced his outstanding wall maps of Europe and of Britain. In 1569 he published his masterpiece, the twenty-one-sheet map of the world, constructed on what is now known as Mercator's projection. It was during this period, while teaching cosmography at Duisburg, that Mercator realised the pressing need for a modern collection of maps to supersede the Ptolemaic atlases. This project was gradually expanded to be a complete description of the Universe, both heaven and earth, with other volumes on the Creation, Genealogy and History and a Chronology. The description of the earth was to be in two parts, a modern geography and a Ptolemaic atlas, a massive and over-ambitious project. In fact, only the Chronology and the Ptolemaic Geographia were completed in his lifetime, and it was left to his son, Rumold, to complete and publish the world atlas in 1595. Entitled Atlas, sive Cosmographicae Meditationes de Fabrica Mundi, this was the first time the name "Atlas" was applied to a bound collection of maps, and, like Mercator's projection, has remained in everyday use to this day. After Rumold's death in 1599, the plates for the atlas were published by Gerard Jr. Following his death in 1604, the printing stock was bought at auction by Jodocus Hondius, and re-issued well into the seventeenth century. Johannes Janssonius (approx. 1588-1664) came from a family of printers and publishers and learned the book printing trade at an early age. In 1612 he married the daughter of Jodocus Hondius and thus became a member of one of the most important publishing families in the Netherlands. During the 1630s he went into partnership with his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius and published more editions of the Mercator/Hondius atlases with the addition of the name Jansson. He grew their publishing house in the fields of geography and cartography and published newly compiled world, sea and city atlases, always competing with the Blaeu publishing house. His main works were the "Atlas Majoris Appendix" (1639), the six-volume "Atlas Novus" (1638 ff.) and the monumental "Atlas Major" comprising eleven volumes (1647).

        DU NOTAIRE'. Französische Handschrift in schwarzer Tinte auf Papier, unsigniert und undatiert (ca. 1760), einspaltig, zu 26 - 35 Zeilen, Schriftspiegel ca. 20 x 13 cm.

      - (478) S. (bis Seite 472 paginiert), (1) lose eingelegtes Korrekturblatt, dunkelbrauner Ganzleder-Band der Zeit auf fünf unechten Bünden (Gelenke mit kl. Einrissen, Ecken etwas berieben), 27 x 18,5 cm. Der Text, in gut lesbarer Reinschrift, besteht aus etwa 200 Kapiteln mit Überschriften, die jeweils ca. 1 bis 4 Seiten umfassen. Die ersten Kapitel (S. 1 -23) befassen sich zunächst mit dem Notariat im Allgemeinen und dessen (historischer) Funktion ('Du Notaire', 'De la Creation des Notaires', 'Du Privilege des Notaires', etc.). Die folgenden (S. 23 - 104) behandeln die Praxis und die Rechtsformen von Verträgen und Transaktionen ('De l'origine des Contracts', 'De L'obligation', 'Formule d'une obligation', 'Des legalizations', 'De la transaction', 'De la restitution', 'Des choses qui peuvent être vendues, ou achetées', etc.) und (S. 105 bis 230) den Kauf und Verkauf, die Überlassung, den Tausch und die Nutznießung, insbesondere von Immobilien, sowie spezielle Formen der Übertragung von Gütern und Rechten ('De la vente des fruits', 'De la vente des servitudes', 'De la rente', 'Du partage', 'De l'echange', 'Du titre clerical', 'Des resignations des benefices', 'Du contract d'entrée en religion', 'De la Commande', 'Des fiefs', 'Des taillables', 'Des procures', 'Des Donnations', etc.). Auf Seite 230 bis 270 werden Heiratsverträge behandelt, daran anschließend (bis S. 297) u.a. Gesellschafts- und Vereinsrecht und Lehrverträge ('De la Societé', 'De l'apprentissage', 'Du Depot', 'De la quittance'), ab Seite 298 Testamente und Erbschaftsangelegenheiten ('De l'institution hereditaire', 'De la legitime', 'Des legats', 'Des usufruits', 'Des enfants naturels, bâtards, . ', 'Des aliments', 'De l'inventaire legale', etc.). Ab Seite 395 wird schließlich das Schuldner-Gläubiger-Verhältnis, Zinsen und Sicherheiten dargestellt ('Des interets et usure', 'Des prescriptions', etc.); die letzten Kapitel befassen sich mit Sonderfragen, aber auch den Notariatstarifen; die Seiten 463 bis 471 enthalten das Inhaltsverzeichnis. - Seit dem Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts gab es in Frankreich ein Standardwerk zum Notariat, das Lehrbuch par excellence : Claude de Ferrieres (1639 - 1715) 'La Science parfaite des Notaires', erstmals 1682 in Paris erschienen. Auch für das vorliegende Manuskript war dieses, von Ferrieres Sohn Claude-Joseph (1680 - 1750) fortgeschriebene Standardwerk , wohl ein Vorbild. Auch Ferrieres Werk besteht aus etwas über 200 Kapiteln, von denen die meisten in der hier vorliegenden Handschrift ihre Entsprechung finden. Während Ferriere aber streng definitorisch Begriff für Begriff abhandelt, geht die Handschrift auch auf (wohl der eigenen Praxis entnommenes) Nebensächliches und Beispielhaftes ein : 'Des fruits qui tombent des arbres d'autrui sur le fond voisin' (Seite 444) etc. - Die ersten Seiten mit mittigem Braunfleck, sonst nur stellenweise leicht stockfleckig.

Every recto has, beneath the last line of text and toward the left margin, a circular squiggle; two such marks appear at the end of the document, and at various places throughout the text in the left margin of a number of pages where cross-outs appear in the text. Permit me to speculate: the squiggles may be acknowledgements of their consent by the parties, both to the contract as a whole and to changes in the documents, a practice still followed today when interlineations are made to printed contractual documents. The signatures at the end (Mathon & Gibert?) are those of the notaries. Let me speculate further: if the foregoing is true, then the happy couple were illiterate and signified their consent by making their “marks,” as occasionally happens even today. Jean Louis was a descendant, along an illegitimate branch, of the earliest French Kings; specifically, of Robert, son of Robert the Strong who was count of Anjou, and nephew of Odo who became King of the Western Franks in 888. Throughout Medieval times and into the early modern era, marriages were most often motivated by politics, power, and land, almost never by love and romance. The latter two stimulants to propagating the species led to extra-marital affairs and illegitimate children. Sometimes these branches were legitimated by a king, and sometimes they weren’t. The record is not clear whether, by Jean Louis’s lifetime, his branch of the Bourbons had ever been legitimated. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Exercitationes juris, in quibus præter aliarum gentium leges, cum jure svecano jus romanu pro instituti ratione breviter ac succinctè confertur, &, quoties opus videtur, ad normam juris divini revocatur.

      Impensis authoris. Uppsala, Æschill. M(atthæi), 1639. 4:o. (127) blad. Sista bladet blankt. Med mycket ojämn arksignering! Titel tryckt inom träsnittsram. Fuktrand i nedre hörn genom H- och I arken och med lagerfläckar mot slutet. Mycket fint samtida pergamenband med guldornerad rygg med handtextad titel, guldornerade pärmar med dubbla ramlinjer, blommor i hörnen och medaljong i mitten. Med D'Antivaris pärmstämpel "C:T:A." pressad i svart på frampärmen. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Collijn sp. 528f. Almqvist s. 115. Björne s. 27f. Carlander II, s. 301 resp. III, s. 568. Träsnittsramen är densamma som användes till Nya Testamentet 1549-50 (i Hiertakatalogen (post nr. 1190) kallad för den "Lamensonska ramen", vilket troligen är felskrivet för "Laurentssonska"). Fint exemplar av första upplagan av Loccenius första större rättsvetenskapliga arbete! Det tillkom när Loccenius var professor i romersk rätt och var avsedd att vara en handbok i detta ämne. Det är även hans första bok som dessutom behandlar svensk rätt, även om den delen är av ringa betydelse. En andra upplaga av "Exercitationes" trycktes som bilaga till den andra upplagan av hans "Synopsis" (1653), med separat paginering, och sedan arbetade han in texten helt till den tredje och kraftigt utökade upplagan av "Synopsis" (1673). Johannes Loccenius (1598-1677), som föddes i Holstein, blev jur. dr. i Leiden 1625 och inkallad till Sverige av Gustav II Adolf till en professur i historia i Uppsala samma år. 1628 blev han professor Skytteanus, 1648 universitetsbibliotekarie, rikshistoriograf 1651 och 1667 assessor i antikvitetskollegiet. Som forskare i svensk rätt och som lärare introducerade Loccenius rättsvetenskapen i Sverige. Christopher Theodor D'Antivari (1690-1763) var romersk-tysk kejserlig minister-resident i Stockholm. Han gjorde stora donationer i Stockholm, bl. a till Klara kyrka (där han även är begravd) och adlades i Sverige samma år som han dog. Han hade ett stort biblotek, med historia och juridik. Hans bokstämpel är englit Carlander från 1740-talet

Boards and spine slightly worn, outer joints tender. From the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, with 1860 engraved bookplate on front pastedown, blind pressure stamp on half-title, titlepage, and first leaf of text. Contemporary inscription of title ("VARONES ILUSTRES DEL NUEVO MUNDO") on front fly leaf, contemporary ownership inscription at bottom of half- title. Text browned with light foxing throughout. Printed notes at bottom of leaves Nn1 verso and a2 recto trimmed (affecting some text), paper flaws in text of final printed leaf (with slight loss). A very good copy. A collection of biographies of Spanish discoverers, conquistadors, and other figures involved in the early exploration and colonization of the New World, composed by a great grandson of Francisco Pizarro. Pizarro y Orellana, who held office in the Supreme Council of Castile, composed the work with the aim of simultaneously defending his ancestors Francisco, Juan, and Gonzalo Pizarro and laying claim to rights and grants due their descendants. "In order to hide this intention he cleverly included in his work biographies of other prominent discoverers such as Columbus, who by then was almost forgotten, Hernán Cortés, Alonso de Ojeda, and Diego García de Paredes. All the biographies are written in the same elevated tone of admiration, the narration being constantly enhanced with numerous erudite notes and comments in which the deeds of the subjects are favorably compared to those achieved by the great heroes of antiquity. In sharp contrast to the others, the biography of Diego de Almagro, the Pizarristas' great foe during the civil wars, is characterized by a poorly disguised tone of condemnation, his actions being shown as the tragic result of his personal shortcomings" - Delgado-Gomez. A fine mid-17th- century biographical compendium, providing extensive information about several key figures in the discovery and conquest of Spanish America. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 639/93. SABIN 63189.

        Mundi Lapis Lydius, sive VAnitas per Vertate falso accusata & convicta opera Antwerp

      typis viduae Jaon. Cnobbari 1639 - FIRST EDITION 4to. pp. [xxviii] 249 [xxvi]. Roman letter, a little italic, printed side notes, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, engr. t.p. featuring three female allegories of Truth, Justice and Vanity by Theodor Johannes van Merlen after Abraham van Diepenbeeck, 50 engraved emblems by A. Pauli in strong and clear impressions, on p. 234 full moon rising over a river, hand-coloured. Light age yellowing, slightest worming to gutter and margin of t.p., couple of ll. slightly short at end of ream; a handsome and well-margined copy in contemp mottled calf with covers triple-bordered in gilt, spine gilt in six compartments with raised bands, verysympathetically restored. An emblem book with a uncommon didactic twist: the typical pairing of each image with an instructive motto has been split in two, one describing the scene untruthfully ('vanitas'), the other its reality ('veritas'). For instance, surrounding an image of a printing house (p. 10) it is said that Verborum copia and Nihil copia, sed usus: although there is an abundance of words and writing, abundance means nothing without use. In fifty chapters, the book provides a dual commentary over subjects as diverse as memory, marriage, political power, fame, and eating habits. As de Bourgogne argues in the preface, the exercise proves that poor judgement sometimes allows vain conclusions to be drawn from truth. The work is critical of its own tradition, since other books of emblems encourage forming many different possible interpretations of word and image, both religious and profane. De Bourgogne's recognizes both tendencies in the genre, and his commentary reveals to readers not only which he takes to be true, but instructs them how to arrive at truthfulness for themselves. The volume is a fresh and innovative continuation of his earlier emblem book, Linguae vitia et remedia (1631) which focuses on remedies for the abuse of language through insults, lies, blasphemies, and calumnies. It was popular into the 18th century, reaching several other editions and translation into Dutch and German.
Little is known about Antoine de Bourgogne (1594 - 1657), Canon and Archdeacon of Bruges, although in one of the five laudatory poems at the beginning of the Mundi Lapis, he is connected by his friend the poet Olivarius Vredius, with the ancient House of Burgundy, through his namesake Anthony, bastard of Burgundy to Anthony's father Philip the Good (1396 - 1467), and finally Philip's father John the Fearless (1371 - 1419).

        Virginiae partis australis, et Floridae.

      Amsterdam 1639 - Copperplate engraving with fine original color, refreshed; some reinforcement and offsetting, else excellent. A map that combines elegant design with historical importance, it depicts the area from the lower Chesapeake Bay, down through North Carolina¿s Outer Banks, the entire coastlines of South Carolina and Georgia, along through to northern Florida. The map reflects the growth of the English colony beyond the Jamestown settlement. The English royal coat of arms marks this area. Less well known but shown on the map is one of the failed French colonies in Port Royal in South Carolina, whose inhabitants were massacred by the Spanish. Beyond this, there was little European presence in the Southeast at the time, as indicated by the predominance of Indian tribal names on the map on the area. Because the area was still dimly known at the time, the map abounds in legends concerning the nature of the interior, man of which are of a tantalizing nature. One lake is reported by Indians to contain silver. Gold and silver are supposedly found in the Appalachian Mountains, which are shown on the map in Georgia. Another large lake on the map that is said to have a large falls emanating from it might actually be the mapmaker¿s guess at locating Lake Ontario and the Niagara Falls The map is a fine example of Dutch decorative engraving. Six well-drawn Indian figures flank the title cartouche, and three well-detailed sailing vessels and two compass roses provide added ornamentation. Burden 254; Cumming 42
