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]

Description: This map was published by Joannes Blaeu in 1664. Artists and Engravers: Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) is a famous Dutch Cartographer. His most notable early work was a map of Holland (1604), a fine World Map (1605-06) and Het Licht der Zeevaerdt (The Light of Navigation), a marine atlas, which went through many editions in different languages and under a variety of titles. At the same time Blaeu was planning a major atlas intended to include the most up-to-date maps of the whole of the known world but progress on so vast a project was slow and not until he bought between 30 and 40 plates of the Mercator Atlas from Jodocus Hondius II to add to his own collection was he able to publish, in 1630, a 60-map volume with the title Atlantis Appendix. It was another five years before the first two volumes of his planned world atlas, Atlas Novus or the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum were issued. About this time he was appointed Hydrographer to the East India Company. When he died the business passed into the hands of his sons, Joan and Cornelis, who continued and expanded their father's ambitious plans. Condition: Fine.

"His great work was called forth by a controversy between a Jesuit, Matthias Wilson (alias Edward Knott), and Dr. Christopher Potter, provost of Queen's College, Oxford, as to whether Protestants could be saved. Three books had already appeared when Chillingworth entered the contest (Charity Mistaken, 1630, and Mercy and Truth, 1634, by the Jesuit; Want of Charity Justly Charged, 1633, by Dr. Potter). His work, after being examined by the vice-chancellor of Oxford and two divinity professors, appeared at Oxford in 1638 with the title The Religion of Protestants a Safe Way to Salvation: or an Answer to a Book entitled Mercy and Truth. A second edition was necessary within five months, and a host of answers and criticisms was called forth, from Puritans as well as Roman Catholics. It is a defense of Protestantism, which, he says, he understands to be not "the doctrine of Luther, or Calvin, or Melanchton; nor the confession of Augusta [Augsburg], or Geneva; nor the catechism of Heidelberg, nor the articles of the Church of England; no, nor the harmony of Protestant confessions; but that wherein they all agree, and which they all subscrib … [Click Below for Full Description]

Homann; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724), Nuremberg, was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. 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). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs co … [Click Below for Full Description]
