HOFFMAN, Johann.
Engraved map with fine original outline hand-colour, backed with early marbled paper to make a playing card. Dimensions: 125 × 65 mm. Hoffman published two sets of playing cards, one of the world, the other of Europe. That of the world survives in just two known examples. The present example is from the Europe pack which was entitled 'Europeisch-Geographisches Spiel-Charte'. It is extremely rare. The world map in the set bears the imprints of 'J.H. Seyfrid, delineavit' and 'Wilhelm Pfann. sculpsit', probably those responsible for all the cards. The date 1678 comes from the accompanying text volume which resides in the Willshire Collection at the British Museum. Hoffman was born in Frankenberg, Saxony, 17 March 1629. He was often in trouble with the authorities in Nuremberg for various illegal activities including plagiarism. He died 27 March 1698. Provenance: this example is ex Rimington-Wilson Collection sold at Christies November 1971 lot 295 to Sylvia Mann. References: S. Mann & D.

He owned a business on Fleet Street, where he sold maps.A map of Rome by John Senex (1721)He was in particular, one of the principal cartographers of the 18th century. He started his apprenticeship with Robert Clavell, at the Stationers Company, in 1692. Senex is famous for his maps of the world, some of which have added elevations, and which feature minuscule detailed engravings. Many of these maps can be found in museum collections; rarely, copies are available for private sale. Some copies are held in the National Maritime Museum; many of his maps are now in the possession of Trinity College Dublin. Having worked and collaborated with Charles Price, Senex created a series of engravings for the London Almanacs and in 1714 he published together with Maxwell an English Atlas. In 1719 he published a miniature edition of Brittania by Ogilby. He became particularly interested in depicting California as an island instead of part of mainland North America, a trait which makes many of his maps appealing to collectors.

Caramuel Lobkowitz (Juan), 1606-1682
Vigevano (Italy), En la Emprenta Obispal por Camillo Corrado, 1678. First printing of the most ambitious Spanish architectural treatise to date, a provocative work in which the author argues the superiority of "oblique" architecture to "straight" (Vitruvian) architecture, and famously censures Bernini's designs for the colonnade around St. Peter's Square, staircase in the Vatican, and equestrian statue of the Emperor Constantine. The book is the earliest of eight publications issued under the imprint "En la Emprenta Obispal por Camillo Corrado" (Typis Episcopalibus apud Camillum Conradam) at the Italian town of Vigevano, where Caramuel was bishop from 1673 until the end of his life. It is notably difficult to obtain "complete" and in good condition, and its absence from collections of architectural books developed over many years, such as the RIBA/British Architectural Library, Fowler Collection of Early Architectural Books at Johns Hopkins University Library, and Canadian Centre for Architecture, is telling evidence of the difficulty of procuring a copy.

Seutter Matthias ( 1678 - 1757 ) Augsburg
Artist: Seutter Matthias ( - 1757 ) Augsburg; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca 1730. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 20 x 25,5; - description : Map shows total Benelus with two beautiful cartouches with coat of arms; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matth?us Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

Engraved map, with the associated description table; centrefold restored, bottom right hand corner re-instated, with small loss. Dimensions: 110 by 140mm. (4.25 by 5.5 inches). This rare little map, probably taken from an example of Seller's 'Atlas Minimus', began life as a playing card (only one known set), the III of the Europe suit, but was quickly re-engraved to form part of a little pocket atlas, the 'Atlas Minimus' presumably aimed at the education market, perhaps the earliest British cartographic publication so designed.

1678. City: 'Herderwick in Geldern.' (Harderwijk is a city in the province of Gelderland, the Netherlands.); Theme: 'Gula plures occidit, quam gladius.' (Many more die from eating or drinking too much than from the sword / war. The image foreground shows soldiers and men overeating and drinking.) Edition: 1678. Copperplate engraving and etching combination on verge type hand laid paper. Description: This delicate engraving originates from 'Thesauri Philo-Politici' / 'Thesaurus Philopoliticus' / 'Politisches Schatzkastleins'. This work was originally created in the period 1623-1632 and consisted of 16 parts, first published separately and then together in 2 books of 8 parts ea. Altogether it had 830 prints. Later editions were published in 1637-1638 by Paul Furst (titled 'Sciographia Cormica') and in 1678 by his widow (titled:'Sciagraphia Cosmica'). Complete editions are scarse. The primary objective was the poetry and accompanying emblems with a moralising symbolism. The city views were secondary and mainly served for decoration. There is no particular tie between the poetry and the city. The city views were mostly engraved after popular engravings at the time from the works of Guicciardini, Braun/Hogenberg, Munster and others. The Poetry consists of a aphorism or theme in German or Latin at the top, a 2 line relating poem in Latin below the image and a 4 line relating poem in German below. In the engravings there is always a foreground which illustrates the theme and a city view in the background.Artists and Engravers: The authors of this work are Daniel Meisner (1585-1625 … [Click Below for Full Description]
