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. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. 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).

Contemporary boards. 18 cm A dirty book in more than one respect (Ref: Schweiger 2,821; Brunet 4,869; Graesse 5,441; Ebert 17919; Smitskamp, 'The Scaliger Collection', no. 130; Not yet in VD18) (Details: The first 96 pages contain the Latin text of the 87 poems of the Priapeia, accompanied by commentary. Pages 97-116 form the index. Follow 17 pages with 6 (forged) lettters of the Byzantine emperor Heraclius to Sophocles Sophista on a book found in the grave of Cleopatra, the answer of Sophocles Sophista, a letter of the consul C. Antonius to Q. Soranus 'de incontinentia libidinis Cleopatrae Reginae', the answer of Soranus, 'De modo medendi ardorem libidinis Cleopatrae Reginae', a letter of Cleopatra addressed to Q.

TACITUS.
Strassburg (Argentorati), Ediderunt Georgius Andreas Dolhopfius & Johannes Eberhardus Zetznerus, 1664. 8vo. (XVIII,1122,(2 blank)) p. Overlapping vellum 17 cm (Ref: VD17 547:695101K; Schweiger 2,1002; Dibdin 2,452; Moss 2,643; Graesse 6/2 9; Fabricius/Ernesti 2,398) (Details: 6 thongs laced through the joints. Engraved title, depicting an altar, left of which stands a Roman emperor, right a German warrior; on the surface of the altar the text 'Aeternitati', for Eternity; just above the altar hangs the globe, upon which stands an eagle with spread wings. This scene seems a combination of two Roman coins. It was perhaps made after the verso side of a coin struck by Constantine the Great in Trier in 321 A.D.; on this coin there is however no eagle; a scene consisting of a globe on which an eagle stands, is to be seen on a denarius of Caracalla, struck after 217 A.D. This frontispiece is purely propagandistic in its presentation. It depicts not so much the struggle between the Romans and the German tribes, that Tacitus tells about. It rather symbolizes the claim of the Holy Roman Empire (Sacrum Romanum Imperium, Heiliges Römisches Reich), that it was the legitimate successor 'for eternity' of the Roman Empire. The imperial banner of the Holy Roman Empire depicted a black eagle) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned and slightly worn & spotted. Head of the spine chafed. Front & rear joint starting to split for 1 cm. Some old ink underlinings. Paper browning. Bookplate on the front pastdown) (Note: The Roman historian Publius Cornelius Tacitus offered ammunition for many intellectual and … [Click Below for Full Description]

URSINUS, ZACHARIAS
Amsterdam, Johannes van Ravesteyn, 1664. 2 delen in 1 band, (titelprent, 12, portret) 258, (4) 233 (5) folia. Origineel Leer met ribben, goud-bestempeld, 4° (Enkele kleine wormgaatjes in de band, fol.170-175 van het tweede deel plaatselijk gebruind. Het voor- en achterplat is goud-bestempeld met het VOC-embleem van de Zeeuwse kamer te Middelburg. Catechismusverklaring van de Duitse gereformeerde theoloog Zacharias Ursinus, 1534-1583. Het is bekend dat de VOC veel aandacht besteedde aan de Heidelbergse Catechismus. Deze catechismusverklaring was dan ook een van de standaardwerken welke meegegeven werd aan boord van de Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie, de ziekenbezoeker was gewoon om uit het Schatboek van Ursinus te lezen als men op zee was en tevens werd het werk gebruikt als evangelisatiemateriaal onder de bewoners van de koloniën van de VOC. Het tweede deel is dan ook o.a. opgedragen aan de 'Bewindthebberen der Geoctroyeerde Oost-Indische Compagnie' en prijst hun werkzaamheden om 'het Licht der H. Waerheyt voort te setten tot die blinde Heydenen &c.'. Dit exemplaar heeft een VOC-M band, wat betekend dat het verstrekt is door de VOC kamer van Zeeland welke gevestigd was te Middelburg. De kamer van Zeeland exporteerde één boek op elke drie boeken welke de kamer van Amsterdam exporteerde. Daarnaast werden de boeken voor het gebruik op het schip zelf voornamelijk vanuit Amsterdam geleverd. Hierdoor zijn boeken met het VOC-embleem van de kamer te Middelburg bijzonder schaars. Een fraai exemplaar.) 2 volumes in 1 binding, (frontispiece, 12, portrait) 258, (4) 233 (5) folia. Co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Del CASTILLO (Antonio)
Joseph Rodriguez, Madrid, 1664. Small 4to. [13], 493 pp., [11], engraved vignette on title page, 6 engraved folding plates including 1 large map & 2 large plans, 37 woodcuts in text, contemporary full calf, title gilt on raised spine, speckled edges, index, small marginal tear and loss of few words on page 183, spine lightly rubbes, bookplate verso front cover. This popular traveller’s account of a journey to the Holy Land was reissued in many later printings, including the Paris edition of 1666 held by Brandeis. Antonio del Castillo was a Franciscan friar sent by his superiors to the Holy Land in the first part of the seventeenth century. From there he travelled to Alexandria, Egypt, and several other countries in the Middle East. In this volume, he describes his visits to Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Jaffa, with particular emphasis on the holy places he encountered there. The final portion of the book is given over to an account of the liturgy at the various important churches he visited, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Most striking in this volume are the numerous folded plates illustrating various aspects of the friar’s travels, particularly two enormous printed maps of Jerusalem, one representing the city as it might have looked in the first century as it flourished in the time of Jesus Christ, and the second portraying the city as it looked in the early seventeenth century’. Both of these maps are fascinating in their detail, with more than a hundred individual sites singled out for additional description in each instance. These include, in the fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Francisci, Erasmus; pseud.:) Gottlieb Warmund.
Bayreuth, Johann Gebhard, 1664. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe des seltenen und heute wenig bekannten ökonomischen "Bestsellers" des Barock, in dem die Ursachen des Geldwertverfalls nach dem dreißigjährigen Krieg untersucht werden: der Rückgang der Bevölkerung, die "Ausfuhr" von Geld als Kriegsbeute, zu hohe Zölle und Steuern, erhöhte Münzprägung und dabei insbesondere die Prägung nicht vollwertiger Münzen, mangelndes Kreditwesen, Betrug sowie allgemein die schlechte Justiz und Regierung. Das Buch stellt eine Fundgrube ersten Ranges zur Sozial- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte des Barock dar. Das schöne Frontispiz zeigt 12 emblematische Darstellungen unter dem Motto "Das Land voll Segen ist". Das Werk ist eine sehr frühe Veröffentlichung des Erasmus Francisci (1627-1694). Dieser lebte vorwiegend in Nürnberg, wo er im Endter'schen Verlagshaus tätig war. "Durch seine schwächliche Natur an den Schreibtisch gefesselt, erlangte er binnen kurzer Zeit einen bedeutenden Ruf als Autor und Polyhistor." Er gilt als einer der ersten "vollberuflichen Schriftsteller Deutschlands" und wurde von Gottsched zu den "einflußreichsten Autoren der Barockzeit" gezählt (Dünnhaupt). – Das Buch wird heute irrtümlich auch Gottlieb Hosmann zugeschrieben (vgl. Mauser 321 und HAB A 3755). Francisci selbst gibt sich in seinem "Verzeichniß meiner . Schrifften" von 1691 als Autor zu erkennen, dort allerdings mit leicht anderem Titel. Die Zuschreibung an einen G. Hofmann bei Holzmann-B. S. 303 geht wohl auf einen Druckfehler Jöchers zurück, der in Band 4, Spalte 1818 zwar auf diesen Namen verweist, ihn jedoch n … [Click Below for Full Description]

[American Indians]
[Np, but probably Holland, 1664. Engraving, 12 x 7 1/2 inches. Old crease mark across lower left corner, closely trimmed at upper left margin of print. Remnant of tape in upper right corner. A good copy. A fine engraving of an American Indian family consisting of a father, mother, and baby. The man, dressed in decorated shoes, leggings, and cape, is holding a bow and arrow and carries a quiver. The woman, carrying the child at her breast, is also handsomely dressed and is wearing jewelry on her wrists, arms, and across her chest. Although the natives are identified as being from Canada, a palm tree is in the background. The engraving is derived from an illustration originally published in François Du Creux's HISTORIAE CANADENSIS, published in Paris in 1664. The work from which this particular print derives is presently unknown, although the artist and engraver are identified, respectively, as A.a. Diepenbeck and A. Melaer, and "fol. 405" is engraved in the upper left corner. A delightful European representation of an Indian family, most probably produced before 1700.

chez Charles Angot, 1664. In-8 (mm. 227x165), p. pergamena antica, tit. oro su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi, 35 cc.nn. (frontesp., dedica a Colbert, prefazione), 448 pp.num., 4 cc.nn. (Indice, Errata), con 49 interessanti figure di ottica e di anatomia, xilografate nel t. (molte a mezza pagina), basate sui disegni dell'Autore. Nel celebre trattato "l'Homme", dedicato in gran parte al cervello e all'organo della vista, il grande filosofo, matematico, medico e patologo (1596-1650), fornisce un notevole contributo al progresso delle scienze mediche e, in particolare, alla fisiologia. L'opera, pubblicata postuma, è introdotta da una lunga prefazione del curatore Claude Clerselier, suo amico e ammiratore. Al trattato fa seguito "La formation du foetus", qui in prima edizione, e il volume termina con un approfondito commento su "l'Homme" e sulle figure inventate dall'A. (pp. 171-408) di Louys de La Forge, medico e discepolo di Cartesio. "Prima edizione francese" di questa famosa opera (l'Homme era già apparso in latino nel 1662). Cfr. Cioranescu,II,23968 - Brunet,II,611 - Wellcome,II, p. 453 - Krivatsy,3117. Con lievi uniformi arross., ma certamente un buon esemplare.

DESCARTES, RENÉ. - [THE WORLD AND THE THEORY OF LIGHT]
Paris, Iacques le Gras, 1664. 8vo. Very nice contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. All edges of boards gilt. Old owner's name to title-page (Cognel, 1741). A small marginal strip of paper to outer blank margin of title-page, far from affecting printing, and very discreet. A lovely copy with large margins. (16), 260; 31; 30 pp. + final blank.
