DRAWINGS - CHINESE].
, . . A series of 4 colour drawings of Manchurian(?) scenes. All mounted on Dutch paper probably from the period 1650-1660. The paper of the drawings themselves ranges, in three cases, from 27 x 16 cm to 30 x 19.5 cm; the fourth has been cut down to 16.5 x 17.5 cm. The drawings show the following (all outdoor scenes):1) a dignitary on horseback, with his attendant on foot carrying a parasol.2) 2 ladies, 1 holding the other's sleeve, with a flowering tree and an octagonal stone basin(?).3) a lady with a flowering plant in a basket, with a deer at her side.4) 2 ladies: 1 with a fan; the other leaning on a table with a vase of flowers.All 4 backed with matching European paper watermarked with a 7-point foolscap above "4" and 3 balls. The closest matches in the literature, Laurentius 431-437 (especially 431 and 435), date from 1651 to 1658.

GERSOM, Gerrit van.
Extraordinary manuscript atlas and register of land ownership for the "Gecombineerde Prins Willem Polder" (combined Prince William polder) in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen (the parts of Flanders situated in the province of Zeeland in the Dutch Republic), north and west of the town of Oostburg, in the southwest corner of the Netherlands. It documents the individual plots of land within the polder and records the owners who acquired each plot when the polder was first laid out in 1650 and 1651, and the owners in 1723. Atlases of this type were drawn up by land-owning corporations or polder authorities for the proper administration of land taxes, and provide one of the most complete and accurate records of land ownership. They generally remained in the archives of the institutions until destroyed or turned over to the governmental archives, so that they rarely come on the market. The present atlas of the Generale Prins Willempolder in Zeeland is therefore an extremely rare primary source for the social, economic and topographic history of the region, the history of the Dutch battle against the sea and the genealogy of the land owners. It was compiled by Gerrit van Gersom, then dijkgraaf (the official charged with oversite of a polder and its dikes) for the Prins Willempolder.Most of the first map is detached and several have tears, creases or tattered edges, sometimes crudely repaired, but most remain in good or very good condition. The paperboard core of the front board is lost, leaving the limp sheepskin, and the binding is soiled and tattered, with some tears, chips and broken sewing s … [Click Below for Full Description]

JACOBS, Heyman.
- Ad 1: cf. BMN I, p. 502; Krivatsy 6187-6190; Waller 858; ad 2: BMN I, p. 377; KVK & WorldCat (3 copies); cf. Krivatsy 12484 (1662 ed.).

The account of tobacco, not yet cultivated in the Netherlands when Jacobsz. wrote, notes that it is imported from the West Indies and can be smoked in a pipe or steeped in wine overnight for drinking.

BLAEU, Johannes
Amsterdam: Johannes Blaeu. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring with highlights in gold. Image measures 15.25" x 21".This beautiful circa 1650 map by Johannes Blaeu depicts southern Russia in detail. Covering the southwest part of Russia and Eastern Ukraine, the map extends from Vologda south to the Sea of Azov and from Mykolaiv east to the Volga River, where it discharges into the Caspian Sea. Throughout, the map notes rivers, towns, cities, lakes, and a host of additional topographic features, and renders forests and mountains in profile. The cities of Moscow, Smolensk, Vologda, Nizhniy Novgorod, and Azov are identified. Small illustrations of animals can also be seen. Perhaps the most interesting feature of this map is the "Fossa Kamouz", a canal connecting the Don and Volga rivers. Although non-existent at the time, the idea of connecting the two rivers has a long history. The first recorded work on the canal was done by the Ottomans in the late 16th century. Today the Lenin Volga Don Shipping Canal, opened in 1952, connects the two rivers at approximately the same location. The map includes three elaborate cartouches. The strapwork title cartouche features wild animals and credits Isaac Massa. Massa was a Dutch mapmaker who returned to Holland in 1609 after traveling to Russia and bringing back original manuscript cartographic material. These manuscripts served Blaeu and Jansson as a basis for a number of their maps. The top left cartouche features Russian huntsmen bearing weapons surrounding the crest bearing the Russian Imperial Eagle. … [Click Below for Full Description]
