        Japan map - Durant after Tavernier.

      Coloured copper engraving assembled from two sheets by J. Durant after a drawing of Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, 1679. Plate size: 52 x 77 cm. The map occurs only in the first edition of Taverniers "Recueil de plusieurs relations". For later editions and/or translations the map was made smaller. It shows many unusual comments about Japan. It contains legends about the nature of the country, e.g. where gold is mined. Okasaki is said to have the most beautiful women. In Lake Biwa one can catch lots of salmon. Worthless youths are sent to an island off Kyushu, where they have to work etc. From a cartographic perspective the most important innovation is the inclusion of the route of the Dutch. At Firando it states that this where they had stayed initially. At Kisma '" a different name for Deshima '" it says that this is where the Dutch are. Also some Dutch ships are depicted. The map is handsomely framed using the highest standards (UV protective glass, acid free paper, wooden, i.e. strong and water resistant, reverse side).Jean-Baptiste Tavernier (1605 - 1689), was born in Paris, where his father Gabriel and uncle Melchior, protestants from Antwerp, pursued the profession of geographers and engravers. The conversations he heard in his father's house inspired Tavernier with an early desire to travel, and in his sixteenth year he had already visited England, the Low Countries and Germany. He was eager to visit the East; and he found the opportunity to join two French fathers, M. de Chapes and M. de St Liebau, who had received a mission to the Levant. In their company he reached Constantinople early in 1631, and then proceeded via Erivan to Persia. His farthest point in this first journey was Isfahan; he returned by Baghdad, Aleppo, Alexandretta, Malta and Italy, and was again in Paris in 1633.In September 1638 he began a second journey (1638-43) continuing to India as far as Agra and Golconda. His visit to the court of the Great Mogul and to the diamond mines was connected with the plans realised more fully in his later voyages, in which Tavernier travelled as a merchant of the highest rank, trading in costly jewels and other precious wares, and finding his chief customers among the greatest princes of the East. The second journey was followed by four others. In his third (1643-49) he went as far as Java, and returned by the Cape; but his relations with the Dutch proved not wholly satisfactory, and a long lawsuit on his return yielded but imperfect redress.In his last three journeys (1651-55, 1657-62, 1664-68) he did not proceed beyond India. The details of these voyages are often obscure; but they completed an extraordinary knowledge of the routes of overland Eastern trade, and brought the now famous merchant into close and friendly communication with the greatest Oriental potentates. They also secured for him a large fortune and great reputation at home. He was presented to Louis XIV, in whose service he had travelled sixty thousand leagues by land, received letters of nobility and in the following year purchased the barony of Aubonne, near Geneva. In 1662 he had married Madeleine Goisse, daughter of a Parisian jeweller.Thus settled in ease and affluence, Tavernier occupied himself, as it would seem at the desire of the king, in publishing the account of his journeys. He had neither the equipment nor the tastes of a scientific traveller, but in all that referred to commerce his knowledge was vast and could not fail to be of much public service. He set to produce "Le Six Voyages de J. B. Tavernier"' in 1676 and supplemented it with the "Recueil de Plusieurs Relations"' in 1679. This last contains an account of Japan, gathered from merchants and others. Reference: Walter 35 u. OAG 40; Campbell 27; Cortazzi p. 46/7 and pl. 71. Price: € 2.650,- (excl. VAT/BTW, incl. frame).

        Nouvelle méthode pour apprendre à tracer facilement les cadrans solaires sur toutes sortes du surfaces planes

      1679 - in-12 de (12), 66, (54) pages Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1679, , in-12 de (12), 66, (54) pages et 4 planches, plein veau du début du XVIIIe, triple filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, dos à 5 nerfs orné, tranches rouges, signet, Première édition, rare, d'un des premiers textes qui témoigne de l'activité parisienne du célèbre fabricant anglais Michael Butterfield, tenant boutique à Paris à l'enseigne "Aux Armes d'Angleterre", rue Neuve-des-Fossés. En effet, alors qu'une première partie, assez classique, est consacrée à la manière de tracer avec justesse les cadrans solaires sur les surfaces planes, puis sur toutes sortes de surfaces, à deux reprises, l'auteur (anonyme) s'étend plus longuement sur l'usage d'instruments spéciaux : tout d'abord, des pages 44 et 48, à propos d'une machine propre à poser les axes des cadrans, puis, de la page 52 à 66, au sujet d'un "cadran cyclique fort curieux" (un cadran diptyque solaire et lunaire ?). Cette insistance sur deux instruments spécifiques (qui sont les seuls à bénéficier d'un sous-paragraphe explicitement nommé "Usage") se comprend à la toute fin de l’œuvre, où on lit l'avertissement publicitaire suivant : "Le Sieur Butterfield fabricateur des instrumens de Mathematiques au Fauxbourg S. Germain, rue neuve des Fossés, Aux Armes d'Angleterre, fait fort proprement le Cadran cyclique, la règle de la Figure fondamentale, et la machine propre à poser les Axes des Cadrans." Ainsi, l'ouvrage de l'inconnu Monsieur C. sert de publicité et de manuel d'utilisation pour deux instruments construits par Michael Butterfield, installé depuis seulement 1677 à Paris et qui fit paraitre la même année que le présent ouvrage sur les cadrans (1679), une brochure sur un microscope simple, de type Huygens. Les 54 dernières pages constituent une longue table des latitudes et longitudes des villes et lieux les plus remarquables du Monde. Les 4 planches illustrent les différentes type de cadrans et le cadran cyclique de Butterfield. Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

OCLC: 257515949.- Die lateinische Originalausgabe "Armamentarium chirurgicum" erschien erstmals 1655.- Johannes Scultetus (Ulm 1595 - 1645) "wirkte von 1625 bis zu seinem Tode als Stadtphysicus in Ulm. Er war somit der 'erste Arzt' der Stadt und verantwortlich für Maßnahmen, welche die gesundheitliche Prävention der Bevölkerung und die hygienischen Bedingungen in der Stadt betraf. Zu seinen Aufgaben gehörte auch die Überwachung von Personen, die sich mit medizinischen Aufgaben befassten, so unter anderem Hebammen und Bader. Auch oblag ihm die Aufgabe, die Toten zu beschauen und bei unklaren Fällen Obduktionen durchzuführen. In Erinnerung geblieben ist er vor allem mit seinem Buch 'Armamentarium Chirurgicum', in welchem er das allgemeine Wissen der damaligen Zeit zur Chirurgie umfassend beschrieb. Das Buch enthält zudem über 40 gezeichnete Bilder, unter anderem von chirurgischen Instrumenten. Seine Operationsbeschreibungen waren so exakt, dass sie teilweise bis heute Bestand haben. Kurz nach seinem Tod wurde dieses Werk als 'Wundarzneyisches Zeughaus' ins Deutsche übersetzt und somit auch den Wundärzten, die meist kein Latein konnten, zugänglich gemacht" (wikipedia).- "The Armamentarium Chirurgicum, upon which the fame of Scultetus rests, is a remarkable book for its time. It contains a complete catalogue of all known surgical instruments, of the methods of bandaging and splinting, and a vast number of operative procedures, all of which are illustrated in graphic detail by means of numerous plates. In addition it contains a large number of case reports which give evidence of his surgical daring and skill" (Zimmerman-Veith, Great Ideas in the History of Surgery SS. 250f.).- Titel und hinterer Innendeckel mit Stempel, vorderer Vorsatz erneuert.

Questions, Nativities, with all its Parts, and the whole Doctrine of Elections, nver so Comprised, nor Compiled before; so that the young Student may learn as much here as in the great Volumes of Guido, Haly, ex Origanus

      London: William Bromwich, 1679 A fair copy of the first edition of a very scarce work, with some interesting additions by a previous owner. Partridge (1644-1714), who taught himself Latin and Greek, set out to reform Astrology and remove 'arabic' influences. This work set out to form a brief but comprehensive guide to the subject. This copy is in a full leather binding, with contemporary boards, which have a blind-tooled design, and a newer spine. The endpapers were replaced and additional blank pages added. Internally there is a plate labeled 'frontispiece' but it is not clear if it is from this work. An R Rogers has put the date 1763, his name and some astrological signs on the facing blank, which forms the verso to the publication licence (dated Sept 14, 1678). R Rogers has then drawn an astrological design on the next facing blank, which is the verso to the frontispiece portrait of Partridge. The title page is dated 1679, and is followed by blank; dedication to Sir George Wharton 4pp; Letter from John Gadbury 6pp; To the Reader 8pp; Poem to JP by Thos Trigge and further poems 4pp; half title to Table; Table 13pp; The Ephemerides Explained 2pp; Contents and Errata 2pp; Text pp 1-76; title page for continuation 1679; blank; text pp 79-231; blank; title page for continuation 1679; text pp 235-274; A Century of Choice Aphorisms J Gadbury pp 274-348 Finis. A hand-written advertisement page has been added in - with the name J H Gent, and the date 1665. The binding has general wear to the boards with some corner loss. The newer spine has wear at the joints and edges. Internally the paper is brown toned and a little fragile at the edges. There are numerous annotations, possibly again by R Rogers, with some words being lightly ruled through. A small slip has been added to the base of p285. This was clearly a book which was much used. There is some worm damage which begins with a small hole in the bottom margin of p160. It becomes more pronounced at p213 through to circa p 242 - again mainly in the bottom margin. Some pages have had archive quality tape repair to the bottom margin in the gutter area. There is a small impact on the text, particularly the title page before p 235 in the bottom gutter area. An interesting work which has been priced to take account of condition. Please enquire if you would like to see additional images.

        La Mer de Nort ou sont la N.le France, La Floride, La N.le Espagne, Les Isles et la Terre-ferme d'Amerique

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1679. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Scarce 17th century mapping of America. This superb map of the New World evinces mid-seventeenth century French geographical knowledge, based largely upon the work of the great French cartographer, Nicolas Sanson, Duval's father-in-law. It is also an excellent example of the French cartographic aesthetic, exalting clarity and classical elegance. Duval, with some geographical modernizations, based this map on his smaller 1655 rendering of the same subject. The depiction of the American Northeast is somewhat more progressive than that shown by Sanson. New York, Boston, Cape Cod, Virginia and Maryland are each specifically named. Up into the interior, Duval shows all five Great Lakes, however the boundaries of Lakes Superior and Michigan ("Lac des Puans") are left undetermined. Most of the American Southeast is shown as a part of the great Spanish territory of "Floride," which extends north into the Carolinas. South Carolina is labeled "Floride Françoise," and "Charles-Fort," the abortive French settlement on Port Royal Sound from the 1560s, is labeled here. This map appeared as the top right sheet of Duval's four sheet wall map, titled Carte de Geographie: "All [i.e. each sheet] were designed with individual titles so that they could be viewed independently or when these were removed they could be pasted together to form a large wall map" (Burden). The present example is from the first state of the map. Burden, The Mapping of North America II:508.

He is, perhaps, best remembered for his monumental work \"A Display of Heraldry\" which was first published in London in 1610. Born in 1565 (some date 1550) in the county of Herefordshire. This part of England is very close to the border with Wales and Guillim\'s ancestors were probably of Welsh extraction. He was educated at Brasenose College in Oxford University. In 1575 a John Guillim of Minsterworth married Frances Dennis, and raised a family of one boy, John, and three girls, Margaret, Frances, and Priscilla - unreliable source? The first record of his involvement with heraldry is the Earl Marshal\'s warrant, dated 23 February 1604, permitting him to bear the tabard of the Portsmouth Pursuivant Extraordinary. From Michaelmas 1613, he was receiving a salary from the College of Arms, though his official appointment as Rouge Croix Pursuivant of Arms in Ordinary was not made until 1618. The Display of Heraldry was written around 1610 and reprinted as early as 1611. There were seven further editions of the book following Guillim\'s death, with the last one being printed in 1724. Some historians have suggested that the original author of the Display of Heraldry was a clergyman named John Barkham who was unwilling to have the work published in his own name. Guillim\'s death is recorded as having occurred on 7 May 1621, probably at Minsterworth, although there is no record of his place of burial.Sir Ilay Campbell of Succoth (1734 - 1823) was a Scottish judge, was appointed Solicitor General for Scotland in 1783 and Lord Advocate in 1784. He became Member of Parliament for Glasgow Burghs in the same year. He was Lord President of the Court of Session and Lord Justice General from 1789 to 1808. In 1808, he was created a baronet. He also was Lord Rector of the University of Glasgow in 1799, and died in 1823 aged eighty-nine years.Source: Wikipedia Versand D: 9,90 EUR

      Typis E. Horton & J. Grover, Impensis Johannis Dunmore, Richardi Chiswel, Benjamin Tooke, & Thomas Sawbridge: London, 1679. HERODOTUS / CTESIAS - HISTORIARUM LIBRI IX NOVEM MUSARUM NOMINIBUS INSCRIPTI... (plus) DE VITA HOMERI... Edited by THOMAS GALE. A 1679 Antique Greek History of the Ancient World bound in Vellum, with a Fold-Open Map. Text in parallel GREEK and LATIN. LONDINI : Typis E. Horton & J. Grover, Impensis Johannis Dunmore, Richardi Chiswel, Benjamin Tooke, & Thomas Sawbridge, MDCLXXIX (1679). VELLUM COVERED BOARDS, six raised spine bands, gilt designs and framing on both the front and rear covers, gilt flower in each spine compartment, manuscript title in one of the upper spine compartments, large format, 8.5x13". Pagination: [72] (various introductory pages), 1-557 (the 9 books of History), 558-708 (De Vita Homeri, Appendices, Fragmenta), [78] (Apologia pro Herodoto, Indexes, Chronologia), Indexes and Appendices), 33 (Appendices, Notes). The double-page fold-open map of the Middle East is bound in prior to numbered page 1. CONDITION: The Vellum Covering is split at the front spine fold, but the front board itself is holding well; the rear spine fold is splitting for 2" at the top and 1" at the bottom; the vellum is rubbed, soiled and scratched, mainly from age and handling; overall the vellum covers remain firmly bound and their gilt designs fairly bright; lovely covers in a Harry Potter Hogwarts Library sort of way; internally, the vellum is pulling away from the area where it folds over the inside of the boards, but it still remains well attached; there is a lovely bookplate of "Henry Harcourt Horn" with a unicorn design on the front pastedown; the rear pastedown has tears; there is shorelining to the upper area of the title page and the subsequent 20 or so pages, dark on a few of them, but the text is always clear beneath, otherwise the inner pages are in remarkably good condition, just a spot, bit of foxing, crease, rub, or small shoreline, here and there, overall the pages are tight, bright, clean and unmarked. The double page fold-open map of the Middle East remains very nice. A Quite Lovely Copy of this Rare Book. This 336 year-old 1679 Vellum Bound edition is SCARCE. Fair
