He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI.

Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg.

        Voyage de la France equinoxiale en l'isle de Cayenne, entrepris par les François en l'année MDCLII

      First edition. Contemporary brown calf, spine in six compartments with blind-ruled compartments and gilt fleurons, remains of a manuscript title label. All edges speckled red, binding skillfully restored. Tear to lower margin of title skillfully restored, a few tiny stains.  The work is divided into three parts: the first relates the establishment of the colony and its journey to Cayenne, the second is a collection of observations on the 15 months spent there by the author and the last is concerned with the country's climate, the fertility of the soil, and the customs and dress of the indigenous peoples. A last part is made up of a Franco-Amerindian dictionary, which is the very first appearance of a lexicon of the Galibi language. Some chapters also refer to Guadeloupe, Barbados and Martinique.Chaplain to the 700 colonists of the expedition sent to Guyana on the 18th May 1652, Antoine Biet gives a precise account of the second attempt at colonization. The attempt failed, and the hundred surviving colonists were forced to flee Cayenne for Surinam in January 1654 (and from there to Barbados), having suffered tropical illness and fierce resistance from the Galibi Indians. According to Boucher de La Richarderie, "no account other than Biet's sheds so much light on the natives of Guyana; he describes them in all their primitive simplicity. The vocabulary of their language is carefully assembled," (Bibliothèque universelle des voyages, 1808).Manuscript ex-libris on front endpaper: "Ce livre appartient à Mr. Adam de Saron [This book belongs to Mr Adam de Saron]."  Chez François Clouzier à Paris 1664 in-4 (17x24cm) (24) 432pp. relié

        Ladimistri nel' archipelago].[The Netherlands(?), ca. 1720?]. Oblong folio (19.5 x 31.5 cm). Pen and blue-black ink-wash drawing on laid paper, showing the city of Edremit, its harbour and fortifications, with an Ottoman and a Dutch(?) ship, and a lighthouse, in a brown thick-thin-thin border, signed in the border below right, but difficult to read (I. P. Sto.?, I. P. Ste.?). Framed (37 x 49 cm).

      - A detailed ink drawing of the harbour of and fortifications of Edremit, an Ottoman port city on the west coast of Turkey. The drawing is made after Johannes Peeter's print Ladimistri nel' archipelago, originally engraved by Lucas Vorsterman the younger and first appearing 1664/65 in the series Diverse vis te[!] delli Dardaneli del' dtrecio come delle città e castelli nel archipelago. The series was published by Jacob (Jacques) Peeters (1637-1695), and the prints were engraved after drawings by his brother Jan (Johannes) Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes.Slightly browned and with a few small and mostly marginal stains. The foremost canon appears to have lost some of its ink, but the drawing is otherwise in good condition. The corners are damaged or discoloured from a previous mounting, far outside the border of the drawing.

        socinianismi confutati tomus tertius

      waesberge amsterdam 1664 - Third volume only of this important work, previously owned by the Guinness family,Mariga (the former Princess Marie Gabrielle of Urach. Present to her son Patrick. Velum cover. "Socinianism: “sulcken schrikkelijcken ende grouwelicken qua- edt” [this terrible and dreadful evil] No single movement has been as controversial in seventeenth-century Europe as Socinianism, named after the Italians Lelio (1525-62) and Fausto Sozzini (1539-1604). 1 In the eyes of established Christendom this radical- liberal strand of Protestantism was an unprecedented theological and socio- political menace. This was not only the case in Poland, where until their expulsion in 1658 the Socinians had their spiritual and administrative center in Raków, but also, and especially, in those countries where Socinianism was favorably received: in Germany, in the Dutch Republic, and in England. 2 Socinians (they called themselves “Brothers” or “Christians”, and after 1650 “Unitarians” or “Polish brethren”) were strongly rationalistic. Faith should be consistent with reason; believing was a matter of assensus (consent) rather than fiducia (trust); although the Holy Scriptures contained truths that were supra rationem (beyond reason), these were not contra rationem (contrary to reason). Dogmas of which the biblical foundation was considered doubtful were rejected, i.e. those of the Trinity, the divinity of Christ and of the Holy Spirit, original sin, unfree will, expiation, infant baptism, God’s foreknowledge ( praescientia ) and predestination ( praedestinatio ), a life in Hell after death, and the resurrection of the dead; capital punishment and military service were not accepted. Nevertheless, Socinianism was more than a protest movement: its members aimed for a serious, rational and ethical daily practice of their faith. On the basis of an optimistic anthropology it was considered possible to observe Christ’s commandments and in this way, taking Him as an example, to attain salvation. " [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Novum domini nostri Jesu Christi Testamentum Syriace, cum punctis vocalibus, & versione Latina Matthaei ... plene & emendate editum, accurante Aegidio Gutbirio.

      Hamburgi: Typis & impensis authoris, 1664. 8vo (17.2 cm, 6.75"). [32], 218, 281–604 pp. First edition of Gilles Gutbier's acclaimed Syriac New Testament, => produced at the author's own expense using types he cut himself. Gutbier (1617–67), a distinguished professor at Hamburg, was universally recognized as one of the leading Orientalists of his era. His work on this New Testament was based on all of the previously published Syriac editions and on two unpublished manuscripts, one of which had belonged to the emperor Constantine. Darlow and Moule note that Gutbier also includes the previously missing "five books, the 'pericope de adulter' and the 'comma Johanneum.'"    This copy has the additional engraved title-page (dated 1663) but is not one of the variant issues that include the supplementary pieces mentioned on that title. The printed title-page present here matches Darlow and Moule's state d.    Binding: Contemporary calf, round spine, gilt spine extra, handsome metal and leather closures with gilt tooling on the leather; very pretty, simple single gilt-roll border on each board. German floral paste-decorated endpapers and all edges red.    Provenance: Ownership signatures of I. Duvarus (1774); J.G. Drunnburg (1822) Johann O. Nordendam (1830) on front fly-leaf.         Darlow & Moule 8966; Graesse 103. Leather "shellacked" and shiny; volume now solid with front board reattached using the long-fiber method and areas of spine similarly improved. A sophisticated copy: four leaves of the prefactory matter (b1–4) are inserted from a small copy (possibly even a different edition). Some early underscoring; overall => very decent as a text and very attractive on shelf or in hand.

The drawing is made after Johannes Peeter's print Ladimistri nel' archipelago, originally engraved by Lucas Vorsterman the younger and first appearing 1664/65 in the series Diverse vis te[!] delli Dardaneli del' dtrecio come delle città e castelli nel archipelago. The series was published by Jacob (Jacques) Peeters (1637-1695), and the prints were engraved after drawings by his brother Jan (Johannes) Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes.Slightly browned and with a few small and mostly marginal stains. The foremost canon appears to have lost some of its ink, but the drawing is otherwise in good condition. The corners are damaged or discoloured from a previous mounting, far outside the border of the drawing.
