Pitt Moses, 1639-1697. Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica, M.Pitt, 1680 Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Tabula Moses Pitt Antique map chart Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Date: 1680 Publication: The English Atlas This beautiful map is one of the most intriguing examples of the internal workings of the map publishing business in the seventeenth century. The copperplate from which the map was printed was originally engraved by Pieter van den Keere (Petrus Kaerius) in 1608. It then passed into the hands of Jan Jansson in 1620, and finally to Janssons heirs who formed a partnership with the Englishman, Moses Pitt. The plate was reworked several times and a comparison of the various states provide a compelling view of the changing image of the world during the 17th century. In this final state, the classic carte-a-figures borders remain unchanged, while the map itself was updated with actual discoveries such as Australia, Tierra del Fuego and the straits of Magellan and Le Maire. Other changes reflect prevailing, but erroneous, theories such as an insular California, a peculiar isthmus linking Nova Zembla to northern Asia, and a revived huge Antarctic landmass. The map is very scarce because Pitts ambitious atlas project was a commercial failure resulting in his confinement in debtors prison. This map is a classic example of the mapmaker's art with carte-a-figures borders depicting allegorical representations of the sun, moon, the five known planets, the four elements and the four seasons. Along the bottom are vignettes showin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pitt Moses, 1639-1697
Pitt Moses, 1639-1697. A map of the NORTHPOLE and the parts adioining, 1680, Pitt Moses Attractive English map of the North Pole and Arctic regions. The map combines some out-dated cartography with a solid view of Hudson and Baffin bays. In Canada the unusual three-island configuration of northern Labrador is derived in part from Sanson's map of 1656. Pitt includes the mythical island of Freesland complete with several place names and Forbishers Strait bisects the southern tip of Greenland. Cartographically the map is notable for the small inset map of Nova Zembla with an explanation that new information had arrived from Russia indicating that it was joined to the mainland instead of being an island as shown on the main map. The cartouche emphasizes the importance of whaling in the region with whaling scenes, walruses, narwhales and Eskimos in their kayaks. A magnificent coat of arms dedicates the map to Charles Fitz Charles, Earl of Plymouth. Size of the sheet: 58x67 cm., printed on thick paper, wide margins, only small tears on margins and only little fingerstained. This is the only original work prepared by Pitt for his ill-fated and uncompleted atlas. It was likely engraved by Michael Burghers, a Dutch emigrant who became the official engraver to the University of Oxford. The atlas was projected to be a 12 volume work in the tradition of the earlier Dutch atlases and was to use updated copperplates belonging to Johannes Jansson van Waesberge, son-in-law and heir of Jan Jansson. Only 4 volumes were completed before the venture failed and Pitt was thrown into debtor's p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Short title in ink on the back. § The mysterious dedicatee on the title is most probably Willem van der Meer from Delft who matriculated in 1629 at the age of twenty in Leiden. This Willem might have been the son of the Councillor of the 'Hof van Holland', the 'High Court of Holland', Abraham Pietersz. van der Meer, member of the political elite of Delft, who died in 1638. (See 'Hugo de Groot, Briefwisseling van Hugo Grotius'. Deel 17, Den Haag 2001, p. 477). The son of Abraham, Willem van der Meer, 1613-1668, became a lawyer at the 'Hof van Holland'. The connection with Delft is confirmed by the provenance of a 15th century manuscript of Cicero's Epistulae ad Familiares (Cod. Guelf. 85. 11.

Alpini, Prosperi.
Pauli Frambotti, Patavii, 1639. Part I: De Plantis Ægypti Liber. [12], 114 pp, / Part II: De Balsamo Liber, 54 pp, each part with vignette title-page and separate pagination and collation, title to first part with early manuscript inscription ‘Ex libris Francisci Sauvin Medici 1666’, numerous full page wood engravings, woodcut initial letters and tailpieces, some light spotting and browning, marbled edges, near contemporary limp vellum Printed 1640-1639. Prospero ALPINI, also known as Prosper Alpinus, (1553-1617), was an Italian physician and botanist born in Marostica, in the Republic of Venice, on the 23rd of November 1553. In his youth he served for a time in the Milanese army, but in 1574 he went to study medicine in Padua. After obtaining his doctor's degree in 1578, he worked as a physician in Campo San Pietro, a small town in the Paduan territory. But his interests were botanical, and to expand his knowledge of exotic plants he travelled to Egypt in 1580 as physician to George Emo or Hemi, the Venetian Consul in Cairo. He spent three years in Egypt, and from observing the cultivation of date-palms there, he seems to have deduced the doctrine of the sexual difference of plants, which was adopted as the foundation of the Linnaean system. He said "the female date-trees or palms do not bear fruit unless the branches of the male and female plants are mixed together; or, as is generally done, unless the dust found in the male sheath or male flowers is sprinkled over the female flowers."
