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): 49 x 55,5; - description: Map shows the citsy map and a total view as bird s eye view of Dresden with index of the map - 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. Matthäus 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.

1678. Peru?, 1678. Manuscript Copy of an Important Edition of Colonial-Era Peruvian Mining Laws [Manuscript]. [Toledo, Francisco de (1515-1582)]. Ordenanzas de Minas del Peru, Tomo Primero y Unico. Peru?, c. 1678. 183, [10] pp. Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary tree sheep, "Ordenanza del Peru" in bold early hand to front board, thong ties, catches lacking. Moderate rubbing and light scuffing to boards and extremities, spine ends and corners bumped, hinges cracked. Moderate toning to interior, faint stains to a few leaves. A fair copy, with a title page and index, in an elegant secretarial hand, text to rectos and versos of all but a few leaves. $3,500. * The Spanish conquest of Peru opened a new era in mining. At first, the intense exploitation of its vast mineral wealth was regulated by a patchwork of pertinent laws from Las Siete Partidas and other sources. It was soon discovered that these laws were not flexible enough to address local conditions, most notably the use of indigenous labor. Over time Spanish laws were supplanted by viceregal decrees and orders. In 1574, Viceroy Francisco de Toledo organized these provisions into a body of Ordenanzes that was approved by King Phillipp II. Known as the Ordenanzas de Toledo, these circulated as manuscript copies. Later copies carry additions of later viceroys; the latest entry in our copy is dated 1678. An official updated edition was issued in 1683. This was followed by first printed edition of mining laws in 1783 (which applied to all of New Spain). Intended for a small circle of users, few of Peruvian manuscript editions were … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wedel promoviert wurde: "Nobilissime, excellentissime atque experientissime Domine D.! Nae meritissimo meo omnem Tibi videbor exuisse pudorem, quod tanto temporis intervallo et gratissimis et doctissimis Tuis literis responderim? Tu, Excellentissimi Vir, ex iam olim insigni instructissimae Tuae Bibliothecae beneficio beasti (quod maxime meminisse iuvat) immo iam ultro humanissimas mihi festinas Tuas literas. Quod vero non citus responderim, quamplurimae fuerunt caussae.

Illustrato da 7 splendide tavole f.t. inc. in rame dal Tasnière o dal De Piene: antiporta allegorico con ritratto del Duca offerto alla Morte; Carlo Emanuele su un cavallo guidato dalla Morte, che si congeda dal giovane Vitt.Amedeo; il catafalco con la salma; grandiosa stupenda veduta (cm 42x81) di Piazza Castello con il corteo funebre, assai interessante per la vecchia facciata di Palazzo Madama raffigurata; 2 grandiose vedute (cm. 83x46 e 44x60) dell'altare maggiore e del Duomo addobbati con scheletri; veduta dell'ingresso del Duomo. Il testo del volume, guidato da indubbi intenti apologetici, contiene il resoconto della breve malattia, della morte e dei funerali del sovrano, nonché un'accurata descrizione degli apparati realizzati, incredibilmente sfarzosi e complessi, considerando la brevissima durata delle cerimonie. Forse il più grandioso libro torinese di feste, anche se funebre in questo caso, illustr. da grandi e splendide tavole; particolarmente notevole è la raffig. del corteo funebre, quasi un pretesto per la realizzazione della veduta della piazza Castello, con la preziosa particolarità di potervi osservare la situazione architettonica prima degli interventi che hanno successivamente mutato l'aspetto di molti edifici, se non addirittura prima della costruzione di alcuni di essi.

1678. 1 S. und Adresse auf gefalt. Doppelblatt (Faltbrief). Gr.-4to (235 x 170 mm). Das rote Lacksiegel vollständig erhalten. An seinen Onkel, Graf Giacomo Negroboni in Brescia, in Familiendingen und über die gegenwärtige Lage im Feld. Chizzola sei soeben als Kommandant in kaiserlichen Diensten eingetroffen; aufgrund eines Friedensabkommens mit den Spaniern und Franzosen alles sei ruhig: "Carissimo Sig. Zio [...] Ho celebrato occasione per appoggiare il Sig. Conte suo Figlio, ma ora, che si sta nei trattati di tregua, et pace, havendosi di gia' fatta, et stabilita la pace con gli Spagnoli, et Olandesi, con Francia, ed essendo all' fine della Campagna, non volentieri si vogliono adoprare alcuno. Et considerando, che quando Vostra Signorina Illustrissima lo volesse appogiare a qualche Principe Generale [...]". Die Kosten der Garnisonierung der Soldaten und ihrer Pferde in Philippsburg seien jedoch sehr hoch. - Der einem alten Brescianer Adelshaus entstammende Chizzola war Kommandant im kaiserlichen Heer; er zeichnete sich bei der Belagerung Philippsburgs 1676 aus und wurde 1689 beim Sturm auf Mainz verwundet. Im selben Jahr wurde er zum Obristen befördert und folgte Max Laurenz von Starhemberg als Kommandant des 8. Linien-Infanterieregiments nach. Er dürfte kurz nach der Schlacht bei Slankamen im August 1691 an im Gefecht erlittenen Wunden gestorben sein. - Spuren alter Faltung; im Rand etwas knittrig.

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.

Seutter Matthias (1678 - 1757) Augsburg
Artist: Seutter Matthias ( - 1757) Augsburg; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca 1744. - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 50 x 58; - description: A double hemisphere map surrounded by 8 hemisphere maps with different projections, California as an island. The Island of California refers to a long-held Spanish misconception, dating from the 16th century, that California was not part of mainland North America but rather a large island separated from the continent by a strait now known as the Gulf of California.One of the most famous cartographic errors in history, it was propagated on many maps during the 17th and 18th centuries, despite contradictory evidence from various explorers. The legend was initially infused with the idea that California was a terrestrial paradise, like the Garden of Eden or Atlantis. Australia not completely depicted as the complete coast was not charted at that time. - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg.

MONTFAUCON Bernard de
- Chez Pierre Granseigne, à Ville-Franche 1678, In 12 (8x14,3cm), (3) 40pp., relié. - Edición rara impresa en Villefranche, después del original de 1671 publicado en París. Obra atribuida a Bernard de Montfaucon pero cuya paternidad se discute. Encuadernación medio shagreen negro finales del XIX. Volver a los nervios jansenistas con título y fecha. Corto corto en la página del título. Bernard de Montfaucon, de Roquetaillade, cerca de Limoux, fue uno de los hombres más doctos de su tiempo y por lo tanto uno de los más famosos de su tiempo, especialmente por su obra monumental: la antigüedad explicada en cifras. Él era benedictino, de la congregación de Saint Maur. La abadía de La Trappe, fundada por la orden cisterciense, fue anexada al dominio de los benedictinos. Será reformado en el siglo XVII según la regla de estricta observancia del abad de Rancé, mucho más rígido y severo que el de los cistercienses. Es precisamente esta reforma que comenta Bernard de Montfaucon, una reforma que inculcó una renovación espiritual en la cristiandad, y que salvó a la abadía de La Trappe del olvido y la decadencia en la que cayeron muchas abadías en ese momento. NB: este libro está disponible en la librería bajo petición dentro de las 48 horas. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition rare imprimée à Villefranche, après l'originale de 1671 parue à Paris.

HOBBES, Thomas
1678. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "The condition of man . . . is a condition of war of everyone against everyone" - Thomas Hobbes An extremely rare first edition of Thomas Hobbes' last work! Thomas Hobbes was perhaps the most notable 17th-century English philosopher who conducted social studies and published historical theories on politics, physics, and law. While works such as 'Leviathan' and 'De Cive' were his most popular books, works such as 'Decameron Physiologicum' proved to be his most important. According to Robertson, this work "was a new set of dialogues on physical questions in the fashion of the earlier ones... And a demonstration of the equality of a straight line to the arc of the circle was, of course, thrown in at the end, to show him true as ever to the desperate purpose that had marinated the long quarter of a century of strife." (Macdonald & Hargreaves) 'Ten Dialogues of Natural Philosophy', as it is more commonly known, includes dozens of impressive topics of study including a discussion on the age of the earth. In this section, Hobbes makes mention of Johannes Kepler, with whom he agreed on the age of the earth. His astronomical studies included planetary motion, physics, effects of heat and cold on the earth, physical systems of the world such as water and air, magnets, and much more. This incredible work features the folding plate at the beginning which is most often lacking from this work. [Attributes: First Edition]
