      Paris: Chez Senault, 1675. n. Hardcover. Beautifully Bound, Handsomely Engraved, and with Bared Sylvan Breasts. 181 x 127 mm (7 1/8 x 5"). [131] leaves. REMARKABLY BEAUTIFUL BLACK STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, ELEGANTLY AND LAVISHLY GILT, BY THOUVENIN (signed at base of spine), covers with elaborate broad frame featuring repeated palmettes, central panel with complex cornerpieces of massed antique tools, raised bands, spine compartments with red morocco cruciform inlay at center and with stylized tulips and multiple stippled leaves emanating from this central ornament, VERY LOVELY BROAD INNER GILT DENTELLES featuring 52 additional red morocco inlays (26 inside each cover), these within large "semis" rectangles with concave sides, the dentelles surrounding pink watered silk pastedowns bordered with a Neoclassical foliate and floral roll (facing a free endpaper of the same material and with the same decoration), all edges gilt, small and very expert repair just at top of joints. In marbled paper slipcase. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT, WITH A GREAT VARIETY OF IMMENSELY CHARMING CALLIGRAPHIC INITIALS, HEADPIECES, TAILPIECES, BORDERS, FLOURISHES, AND OTHER DECORATIVE ELEMENTS. Front flyleaf with the bookplate of Hans Fürstenberg. Whalley, "The Art of Calligraphy," p. 200. Just the faintest hint of wear to joints, two minor blemishes on rear cover, discoloration at gutter of free endpapers (apparently from binder's glue), but A FINE COPY, with the extraordinarily handsome binding still glistening, and WITH THE TEXT NEARLY PRISTINE. The fine binding here covers a prayer book, with many elements of the Book of Hours, specially designed for the extremely devout Dauphine Marie-Christine of Bavaria (1660-90), daughter-in-law of Louis XIV. In light of the person for whom the book was intended, the headpiece on e3, showing two sylvan women with bare breasts, is of particular interest as the feature that makes ours a copy from the first issue of the book: later, more demure, copies have the breasts re-engraved so as to be covered. Another quite similar work by Senault (active 1669-80) is included as item #101 in the Walters Art Gallery "Two Thousand Years of Calligraphy." The calligraphic decoration displayed here shows both a very fertile imagination and an exceedingly skillful technique. Whalley puts Senault "in the tradition of the handwritten devotional works of the school of [Nicolas] Jarry. . . . If you could not afford to commission such a work," she says, "then this engraved prayer book, which looked so like some of the manuscript ones, made a good substitute." Our copy is distinguished by its previous owner, Fürstenberg (1890-1982), who put together perhaps the finest collection of French illustrated books ever assembled.

        Finmarche et Laplandiae Maritima Nieuwe Pascaert vande Kusten Finmarcken en Lapland Streckende van Dronten tot Archangel.

      1675 - Finmarche et Laplandiae Maritima Nieuwe Pascaert vande Kusten Finmarcken en Lapland Streckende van Dronten tot Archangel. Portolan chart of the North and Barents Seas near the northern region of Finland and northeast Russia from Frederick de Wit's Zee Atlas. Coastal cities, bodies of water and islands are named. The map is crisscrossed by rhumb lines emanating from various points on the grid. A splendidly illustrated title cartouche is at the lower left area of map; and various small illustrations of hunting scenes and whaling scenes are shown throughout the map. Vibrant, original color with gold and silver leaf detailing. Frederick de Wit, Sr. was the founder of a prominent Dutch family firm of three generations of cartographers working in Amsterdam. The firms output was prolific, and de Wit maps are often found in atlases by other cartographers. During his long working life, de Wit published 124 land maps and 27 sea charts that were distinguished by their high standard of workmanship, beauty, accuracy and fine coloration. The maps are typical of the style of the period, being completely executed and decorated with cartouches. The founder's son, a skilled mathematician and grandson together carried on the work of the firm, and published 130 maps, although the business did not survive for long after the elder de Wit's death. DE WIT, F Amsterdam, 1675 539.75 x 597 mm Original color Discoloration along paper edges; some foxing.

        THE NORTH PROSPECT OF CANTERBURY. Hoo. Johnson delineavit. W. Hollar fecit. This sculpture, Containing the prospect and Groundplott of Canterbury with the Cathedrall thereof is most humbly presented and dedicated [to Gilbert, Archbishop of Canterbury, i.e. Gilbert Sheldon, 1663-1677] by John Ogilby Esq his Majesties Cosmographer.

      [London]: John Ogilby. [c.1675] - Original etching. Image size 22 x 7.5 inches. Good impression with narrow margins, uncoloured as issued. Dedication in cartouche on right hand side and coat of arms on left hand side cartouche with title in scroll in centre. Mounted in recent acid-free card. Image shows traces of old folds but is otherwise in very good condition. This etching was originally published in the 1650s and reprinted several times by a variety of publishers. This is an Ogilby edition, and although it is impossible to date the impressions in an accurate sequence, this version would be from the second half of the seventeenth century, c.1675. Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) was born in Prague and spent the years 1637-1644 and most of the period from 1652 onwards in England. His output of work was prolific: 'It is largely from Hollar's many etchings and drawings that we know what England looked like in the middle of the seventeenth century.' John Ogilby (1600-76) was a publisher and geographer, who was appointed cosmographer to Charles II in 1671. His collaboration with Hollar began in 1652, when the engraver produced the plates for Ogilby's translation of Virgil and continued until 1675, when he engraved the title page for Britannia, Ogilby's strip map road book of Britain. A fine view of the entire city of Canterbury in its rural setting, surrounded by fields and woods. PRINTS/MAPS CANTERBURY PRINTS/MAPS

Anne moved to Paris following the death of her father in 1672, taking with her notes which she had been accumulating on the text of Callimachus. Her initial success in printing this edition owed something both to her family connections and her own innate talent - at the same time she was offered work by the editor of the Delphin editions, who had known her father - but this edition, together with her translation of Anacreon in 1681, established her as an academic in her own right and her reputation only grew thereafter.

        A corner-stone laid towards the building of a new colledge (that is to say, a new body of Physicians) in London, upon occasion of the vexatious and oppressive proceedings acted in the name of the Society called the colledge of Physicians: For the better information of all men, as well as of physicians, chirurgians, and apothecaries, touching the unhappy estate of the art of physick, here in England.

      London. Printed for the author. 1675 - 4to. [2],38pp. Rebound in quarter calf, marbled boards. Title page a bit dusted otherwise a very good copy. Wing H 3858. Wellcome III, 323. Krivatsky 6124. Concerning a dispute between Huyberts, a physician, and the College of Physicians, whom he accuses of operating a monopoly. Huyberts cured a merchant who had been given up as a hopeless case by members of the College. The Collegians became angry, declaring "they would rather have him died, than that I, being none of their society, should have cured him" and proceeded to bring an action against him. There follows a long attack upon the College, their supposed anatomical discoveries, their bogus cures etc. (He quotes the opinion of Boyle in support of his position) and concludes that the College has done nothing to advance and much to impede the cause of medical progress. Towards the end of the pamphlet Huyberts inserts some autobiographical information from which we learn that he was brought up in Ireland and was trained at Trinity College under Jacob Rickman. He practised in Dublin for seven years and was made a free-man of the city. After a spell in Europe he returned to London where he gave free medicine and medical assistance to the poor. The College, he says, were shamed into proscribing "Bills of Direction to the Sick Poor," but with the proviso that the apothecaries should give the medicines free. Such charity at the expense of others was deservedly laughed at. The college, having had enough of Huyberts, set about putting him out of business. This pamphlet is the sole edition of the only work Huyberts is known to have produced. It provoked a prompt reply on behalf of the College by C. Goddall entitled The College of Physicians vindicated, and the true state of physick in this nation faithfully represented: an answer to a scandalous pamphlet, entitled The Cornerstone. (Wing G1090).

      London. 1675. - Broadside, 22 x 14 1/2 inches, printed on two sheets. Old fold lines. Repaired with tissue on verso along vertical fold. A few other small tears or tissue repairs. Very good. A rare broadside, announcing the decree of the English government that all foreign goods destined for British colonies must first pass through England, a policy of mercantilism later termed the "triangle trade." "This program permitted the profits from colonial trade and commerce to center in England, promoted British shipping, and enabled the British government to support itself by taxing this trade as it flowed through England" (DAH III:374). The English government began its mercantilist policies under the Commonwealth government, in a series of "navigation acts" which regulated English trade. The first Navigation Act, passed in 1651, targeted Dutch commerce. It stipulated that only English ships could carry freight into English territories, and that if a ship was not English, then it could only carry goods from the country from whence it hailed - i.e., Dutch ships could only import Dutch goods, etc. Further Acts passed in 1660 and 1663, under the Restoration government of Charles II, isolated trade even further, mandating that British colonial goods only be imported to England and forbidding English trade on anything other than English vessels. This policy of trade, which was continued for the next two hundred years, marked the ascent of British colonial mercantilism and planted the seeds of discontent which resulted in the American Revolution one hundred years later. The present proclamation is an enforcement of the Navigation Act of 1663 (An Act for the Encouragement of Trade), under which "no commodities of the growth, production or manufacture of Europe, shall be imported into any land, island, plantation, colony, territory or place to his Majesty belonging". In other words, all European trade to the American and East Indian colonies of the English had to pass through English ports en route. As the law is being disobeyed, to the detriment of trade and tax revenue, the proclamation extends power for enforcement to the officials of the realm. It states: "whereas his Majesty is well informed, that notwithstanding the said Act of Parliament, great quantities of other commodities.have been, and are daily imported into several of his colonies, plantations, and territories, in Asia, Africa and America.and that his Majesties subjects of some of his colonies, and plantations, have not onely [sic] supplied themselves with such commodities not shipped in England.but have conveyed them by land and water, to other of his Majesties colonies and plantations, to the great prejudice of his Majesties customs, and of the trade and navigation of this kingdom." An important proclamation which illustrates the difficulty in maintaining and enforcing the laws central to the first British Empire. ESTC R25339. WING C3378. GOLDSMITHS' 2112. STEELE I:3619.

        Africa] Accuratissima Totius Africae Tabula in Lucem Producia Per Tacobum de Sandrart Norimbergae

      J. von Sandart, Nuremburg 1675 - An early map of Africa by the great mapmaker Jacob von Sandrart, engraved by Homann. Sandrart's stunning map of Africa is a close copy of Fredrik de Wit's map, 'Nova Africa Descriptio' published in 1660. With the prime meridian running through Ferro Island, the map is typical of late seventeenth century maps of Africa. Like other maps of the period, Sandrart has included a highly decorative and informative cartouche in the lower left corner of the sheet. Homann's continental cartouches aspired to convey the natural history as well as the costume and manner of life of the human inhabitants. Here, while a woman peacefully nurses her baby in a hammock, a native chief stares out at the viewer from under the shade of a large umbrella. On the right side of the vignette, two riders on horseback, one with a cutlass and one with a decaptitated head, ride by a river where one man is attacking another with his sword. Among the humans are a lion, a snake, a reptile of some sort and another fox-like animal. Although the map repeats De Wit's decorations, it relies on Ptolemy for its description of the Nile basin. It is to some degree remarkable that seventeenth century maps of the interior of Africa were filled with geographical features and named locations, since there had been very little European exploration of the interior at this date. European trade took place at specific locations along the coast and almost nothing was known about the interior of the dark continent except through rumor. This is a fascinating map by Sandrart and one of only two maps engraved by Homann before 1690. Born at Frankfurt-on-Main, Jacob von Sandrart was one of the most esteemed mapmakers in Nuremberg at the close of the seventeenth century. He learned his trade from his uncle Joachim von Sandrart and from Cornelius Danckerts. As with this impressive map, all of Sandrart's charts are filled with a wealth of decorative details and highly ornate cartouches. Copper engraving with early colour. Printed on laid paper. Title in manuscript ink on verso of sheet. Cleveland Historical Society collection stamp on verso of sheet. Numerous tears and creases in outside margins, which have been expertly repaired. Center fold has been strengthened. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A New & Exact Map of Europe...

      Henry OvertonA New & Exact Map of Europe...London: 1738Hand-colored copper-plate engraving 56" x 62 ?" framedEnglish cartography rose to prominence at the turn of the 18th century, and one of Britain’s most celebrated cartographers was Henry Overton. One of seven children, Henry Overton was born in 1675/6. His father, John Overton, was an illustrious London publisher specializing in cartographic prints. Through industriousness and business acumen John Overton had managed to acquire his stock of plates, as well as his own shop, from Peter Stent in 1665, after Stent died from the plaque. In 1700, John acquired John Speed’s plates from Christopher Browne, who in turn had purchased them from Bassett and Chiswell. Henry inherited the business and all its holdings in 1707. An adept business man himself, Henry successfully managed his father’s contracts, as well as added new enterprises to the family publishing firm. Not limited to cartography, Henry also published the more popular prints of the day on topics such as horse racing and hunting. He reissued John Speed’s County Maps in 1713 and 1743, a Plan of London in 1739, and contributed to Bowen’s Royal Atlas in 1763. Despite Overton’s excellent credentials, many of his works were cheaply distributed by other lesser known printers reappearing in pamphlets and rag sheets. It wasn’t until 1735 when the first copyright laws were established in England that such practices were curtailed.A New & Exact Map of Europe With the Prospect of Its Principal Citys After The Latest and Best Obseruations is one of Overton’s splendid creations. This highly ornamental wall map shows Europe during the time of Louis XIV. Europe is flanked by sixteen large detailed views of important cities: London, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Constantinople, Lisbon, Seville, Antwerp, Venice, Frankfurt, Prague, Cologne, Copenhagen, Kracow, and Danzig. Richly detailed and hand colored, this expansive European map is a historical picture of Europe’s political, and social climate during the 1700’s. Engraved any earlier or later then 1738 and Overton’s view of Europe might have looked very different. In the seventeenth century The Thirty Years War carved out the main ruling powers and their subsequent territories in Germany.? Just twenty years before this map was engraved England, the Dutch Republic, and France were involved in the Wars of Spanish Succession over who would take over the Spanish Throne. Overton’s Europe is that of Louis XIV’s, the longest ruling monarch in history (72 years). Made during a the century that saw the culmination of thought and reason through the Enlightenment, as well as political change through the French Revolution, Overton’s map is an excellent historical resource in its reflection of the current state of Europe. One can see that in Northern Europe, Finland has yet to become an autonomous country; it is still part of Sweden.? Overton’s eye for detail has included an exceptional number of cities and geographical features. The whole is enclosed within a richly colored, highly decorative floral border. Overton includes an inset over “Part of Africa,” which states, “Printed and Sold by Henry Overton at the White Horse. . . Newgate London.” This workshop had also been his father’s and was considered to be the most notable and powerful print seller in London. While is it unclear when this map was published, it must have been sometime after Henry’s succession into the family business in 1707. As a wall map its survival and exceptional quality is rare. Most maps were printed in bound form, thus protecting them for environmental factors, like light and humidity, as well as carelessness. Overton’s large map survives with its vivid original color in pristine condition. Not only does this map provide the collector a historically important map of Europe, it is a fine showcase for the cartographic engraving skills of Henry Overton and his workshop.

      London: Printed by J. R.,, 1675. A short Instruction for the attaining the Right Use of Accounts after the Best Method used by Merchants. ... Small quarto (190 x 144 mm). 19th century sheep-backed dark brown cloth with contemporary dark brown speckled calf preserved and laid on top of boards, titles to spine gilt on dark red morocco label. Engraved frontispiece portrait and decorative woodcut headpieces throughout. Ownership inscription of John Norburn to front free endpaper, sporadical ink marginalia. Spine lightly rubbed with minor wear to ends, front inner hinge partially cracked but holding firm, mild foxing to endpapers, text block margins occasionally foxed and stained. First edition. Stephen Monteage (1623-1687) first wrote his discourse on accounting techniques in 1659–61 and it was the first such treatise to address a more general audience, rather than a wealthy elite. "Most of the writings on accounting then available were written for wealthy merchants, who kept a variety of journals, cash books, petty-charge lists, and invoice registers. Ordinary people were not familiar with such procedures, and if they kept accounts at all they probably used a charge-discharge system. Monteage's treatise addressed middle-class merchants. They were advised to keep detailed accounts in a simplified system, based only upon two records, a 'waste' book, or record of first entry, and a general ledger, where these entries were reconciled in a double-entry system" (ODNB).
