[Sanderson, Sir William (1586?-1676)]
London: Printed for Henry Seile, over against St Dunstans Church in Fleet Street. 1650. First Edition. Hardcover. Nineteenth century catspaw calf, boards with double ruled gilt border, contrasting spine lable bearing gilt titles, marbled endpapers, note on title page identifying A.W. as Anthony Weldon, damp mark to top fifth of pp16-48 but text remains clear and bright, small loss from lower corner of leaf A2 not affecting text. 8vo, A-A4 B-O6. Wing S645. , Sir William Sanderson's major achievement lay in his historical writings, which, like most historical writing from the middle of the 17th century was partisan in nature.By his own account Sanderson suffered in the Royalist cause during the civil wars and was knighted by King Charles II at the restoration. This work, Sanderson's most famous, was written in response to "The Court and Character of King James," a memoir written by Anthony Weldon and published postumously. Weldon had been a courtier in the court of King James but had become disaffected, becoming a member of the Kentish parliamentary county committee. Aulicus appeared anonymously but Sanderson admitted his authorship in the preface of his later and more substantial work, "Compleat History of the Lives and Reigns of Mary Queen of Scotland, and of her Son James" (1656). , 8vo , [viii] 205 [1] pp .

Amsterdam, 1650. The image shows Father Rudolph Aquaviva on his knees at the Mogul court, teaching the enlightened mogul Akbar. Aquaviva evangelized the Mogul court and the region around Agra for three years at Akbar's invitation. Akbar ultimately did not convert to Catholicism, reputedly because he would have had to give up his harem. He was martyred with others at the Salcete mission, reputedly by a jealous local sorcerer. Copper engraving with attractive later hand color, 7 1/8 x 11 3/8" with sml margins.

SANSON D'ABBEVILLE, Nicholas (1600-1667)
Paris: Pierre Mariette, 1650. THE FIRST MAPS TO USE THE SINUSOIDAL PROJECTION Six engraved maps with original hand outline color: each 151/2" by 211/2" References: Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 390; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 375-6. The maps of Nicolas Sanson were the first to show the sinusoidal projection, sometimes called the Sanson-Flamsteed or the Mercator equal-area projection. This form provides a simple equal area map projection and reflects the fact that lines of latitude are shorter nearer the poles than those near the equator. To achieve this, it keeps the central meridian straight and preserve distances along it, while transforming other meridians into curves; this has the effect of distorting shapes, in particular those towards the sides of the map, but helps remind the viewer of the curvature of the earth's surface. Sanson is best remembered today for his groundbreaking maps of the New World, in particular his famous map of North America, which is included here in its rare first state. The first map to show all five Great Lakes, it stands as a fitting testimony to Sanson's great cartographic and scholarly talent. In seventeenth-century France, Sanson's skills earned him a remarkably high status for a mapmaker. He served as the Royal Geographer, tutored both Louis XIII and Louis XIV in geography, and the former even made Sanson a councilor of state. Fine sets by Sanson such as this one are extremely desirable and difficult to obtain. Each of … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Edition of the first separately published description of the whole of Vietnam, containing what appears to be the earliest detailed map of North Vietnam. It is preceded by Cristóforo Borri's Relatione della nuova missione.della Cocincina (1631), which dealt only with South Vietnam. In addition to presenting a first-hand account of missionary activity in the country from 1627 to 1646, Rhodes gives details respecting the manners and customs of the native inhabitants, politics and government, natural resources and commerce, &c. French and Latin translations were published in 1652. Rhodes, a French Jesuit, was assigned to the missions of the East Indies and spent several years in Goa, Malacca, Batavia, and Macao, before proceeding to Cochin China (South Vietnam) in 1624, where fellow Jesuits had been working since 1615. He arrived with five colleagues under the leadership of Gabriel De Matos. Within six months he had learnt Cochinchinois, invented the quoc-ngu, by which Vietnamese could be represented by Roman characters, and evangelized much of the region between the coast and the Annamese highlands. (Howgego) In 1627 he proceeded to Tongking (North Vietnam), where he met with equal success, reputedly personally converting over 6000 souls, until he was expelled in 1630. He spent the next ten years in Macao making occa … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANSON D'ABBEVILLE, Nicholas (1600-1667)
Paris, 1650. THE FIRST MAP TO DEPICT ALL FIVE GREAT LAKES The first map to depict all five Great Lakes Engraving with original outline color: 175/8" x 231/4" References: Louis C. Karpinski, Maps of Famous Cartographers Depicting North America (Amsterdam, 1977), 89, Plate VIII; Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), Plate 61; Phillip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 375-377. A leading exemplar of the French school of seventeenth-century cartography, Nicolas Sanson is widely regarded as the founder of modern geography and it is generally held that the so-called "Great Age" of French cartography originated with his publications. This exquisite, hand-colored map of America is a prime example of Sanson's cartographic mastery. "Amerique Septentrionale" was first published in 1650 and was a monumental production in that it was the first map ever to illustrate the five great lakes in recognizable form.
