        Pascaerte vande Caribes Eylanden van 't Eylant Granadillos, tot 't Eylant Anguilla.

      [c.1680], Amsterdam, - Lesser Antilles Double-page engraved chart with fine hand-colour in part and in outline. First large-scale Dutch sea chart of the Lesser Antilles - published in Roggeveen's exceedingly rare sea pilot 'Het Brandende Veen'. Roggeveen, born in Delshaven, came to Middleburg, the seat of both the Dutch East and West India Companies, in 1658. He worked for both companies teaching the art of navigation and helped to maintain their collections of hydrographic manuscripts and charts, including Spanish portolans of the West Indies. In the mid-1660s, assisted by his access to these collections, Roggeveen embarked upon compiling a series of large-scale charts of the North American coastline, West Indies, and, later, West Africa. Many of his charts are based upon the earlier large-scale work of Hessel Gerritsz and Joan Vingboons, both cartographers for the Dutch East and West India Companies, but Roggeveen's work was the first to show the whole coastline of North America and the Caribbean. He called this pilot 'Het Brandende Veen' or 'The Burning Fen'; a pun on his name, as 'veen' means 'fen', and a heap of burning fen represents a fire on the coast to guide or warn ships. The first edition of the atlas was published in 1675 by Pieter Goos, however, due to the death of Goos in the same year, and that of Roggeveen four years later, a second edition would not be published until 1680, by which time the plates had been acquired by the chart dealer Jacobus Robijn. Robijn went on to republish the second edition in 1689, with a third edition appearing in 1698. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Pascaerte Van't Canael de Bahama, En de Eylanden gelegen benoorden Cuba.

      [c.1680]., Amsterdam, - Florida and the Bahamas Double-page engraved chart with fine hand-colour in part and in outline. The first large-scale Dutch sea chart of the Bahamas and Florida's east coast - published in Roggeveen's exceedingly rare sea pilot 'Het Brandende Veen'. "One of the most important of Roggeveen's charts, and the first Dutch one of the region. Through these waters passed the majority of Spain's wealth from the New World. Its publication provided a hugely increased scale on all prior documents. It depicts the east coast of Florida from st Augustine southwards, and all of the Bahamas." (Burden) Roggeveen, born in Delshaven, came to Middleburg, the seat of both the Dutch East and West India Companies, in 1658. He worked for both companies teaching the art of navigation and helped to maintain their collections of hydrographic manuscripts and charts, including Spanish portolans of the West Indies.

        Città di Vercelli

      The Hague 1680 - Opera per la prima volta pubblicata nel "Theatrum Civitatum et admirandorum Italiae", pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1663. Johannes Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristmapti da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie". L’opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell’opera. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine ad un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Le opere tratte dalla prima edizione del Blaeu, 1663, sono caratterizzate dalla presenza del testo al verso e sono piuttorsto rare. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Esemplare tratto dal "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 o nel 1724. Bibliografia: Koeman pp. 332/338, Cremonini pp. 83-90. Dimensioni 590 510mm

        Magnae Tartariae, Magni Mogolis Imperii Iaponia et Chinae Nova Descriptio

      carta geografica raffigurante la parte settentrionale del continente, con Russia Asiatica, Cina, Giappone e Corea, tratta dal "Atlas Major". Incisione in rame, bellissima coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A beautiful example of Frederick de Wit's c. 1680 map of Tartary. The map covers from just north of the Arctic Circle to Formosa south to the the Bay of Bengal and Formosa, and from the Caspian Sea to Hokkaido or Yedso. Although parts of China, Japan, and northern India were somewhat mapped, most of northeastern Asia was fully unknown to western cartographers. The continent has here been given a curious rounded form that may be suggestive of a northeasterly route to Asia. Both the Great Wall of China and the Gobi Desert are clearly delineated. At the western edge of the map the overlarge Caspain Sea is erroneously mapped on an east-west rather than north-south axis. This map was published both independently and as part of various complied and composite atlases. Copperplate, very good condition. Amsterdam Amsterdam Dimensioni in mm. 555 X 440

        The Wedding Of Zeus Marrying Peleus to Thetis the Sea Goddess". (Their Son was Achilles).1680

      1680 - A small frieze copper engraving of this Greek mythological tale. Dates to c1680. Titles beneath the image "Pelei Et Tethydis Nuptiae". Artist and engravers name to lower left outside image but within plate mark. All very clean and good impression or strike. On wove paper with on the reverse a light vertical line down the centre indication it was once folded. The nice thing is this cannot be see from the front and surface clear. Measures; 17.5 x 30 cm. * No engraver, print maker or artist found with this name having searched online just before listing and it the past when I acquired this. Possibly Italian and the work was made in Italy c1650-1700. There was a French Astronomer Giovanni Domenico Cassini and his father was named "Jacopo". The astronomer was born in 1648, so a date mid-to-late 17th century would fit? This is a long shot but worth mentioning if doing further research.

        Famiglia di satiri

      1680 - Acquaforte, priva di firma. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con ampi margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Marco Sanmartino o Sammartino fu un pittore napoletano vissuto nella seconda metà del XVII secolo, secondo il Bartsch attivo verso il 1680. Il Malvasia lo cita con il nome di Sanmarchi veneziano, quasi certamente per il soggiorno dell’artista nella città lagunare. Del Sanmartino pittore sono noti ed apprezzati soprattutto i paesaggi con piccole figure, elogiati per il loro rispetto alla veridicità dei luoghi, accortezza e cura nei dettagli. Queste qualità divengono, nell’opera grafica, un uso equilibrato del contrasto luminoso fra figure in primo piano e fondali con rocce, casolari e quinte arboree, secondo una tradizione figurativa che da Antonio Tempesta si era tramandata fino a Filippo Liagno. L’attività incisoria del Sanmartino si colloca in un preciso rapporto storico, formale e stilistico con quella di Filippo Napoletano. Opera molto rara. Ex collezione F.H. (Lugt 3373) Etching, without date and signature. A magnificent impression, rich in tone, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with wide margins, in good condition. Marco Sanmartino or Sammartino was a Neapolitan painter lived in the second half of the seventeenth century, according to Bartsch active around 1680. Malvasia mentions it under the name of Sanmarchi Venetian, almost certainly the artist's stay in Venice. Sanmartino the painter known and appreciated especially landscapes with small figures, praised for their respect to the veracity of the sites, wisdom and attention to detail. These qualities become, graphic work, a balanced use of luminance contrast between foreground figures and backdrops with rocks, tree houses and fifth, according to a figurative tradition that Antonio Tempesta was handed down to Philip Liagno. The activity of the engraving Sanmartino is placed in a precise historical relationship, formal and stylistic with that of Filippo Napoletano. A very rare work. Ex collection F.H. (Lugt 3373) Bartsch, XXI, 16; Alba Costamagna, Incisori Napoletani del’600, p. 165. Dimensioni 145 188mm

        A Mapp of the Isles of Iapon

      A. Goodbid and J. Playford, 1680. Map. Copperplate engraving with hand-coloring. Expertly restored and lined, margins missing. Image measures 14.25 x 20.75" This rare and unusual map of Japan features a graphic illustration of the islands with pictorial depictions of mountains and forts. An inset of Tunquin (North Vietnam) depicts the river system centered on Hanoi and the Gulf on Tonkin. The Sea of Korea and the country's tip can be seen below the inset. Moses Pitt, a British bookseller and publisher, released this English edition of Tavernier's original French map in 1680. The map has been intensively repaired and has some stains, but it remains a good copy of this hard-to-find map. Jean Baptiste Tavernier (1605-1689) was a famous French traveler who voyaged most extensively in India and Persia. His two volumes of "Les Six Voyages de Jean-Baptiste Tavernier" document his travels and commercial contacts. While he never made it to Japan, this scarce map evidences the wide range of contacts he made during his voyages.

        India & The East Indies "Tabula Indiæ Orientalis "

      Asia: Amsterdam. Fredericum de Wit 1680?. Copper engraved map of India and South east Asia by Frederick de Wit from his " Atlas Maior". Original outline colour; verso blank. The map shows the area from Persia with the subcontinent of India extending to the East Indies with the islands of Indonesia and the Philippines, part of the coast of China, the interior obscured by the title cartouche: the Northern coast of Australia to lower right corner Good impression; light toning to extreme edges; centrefold splits top [40 mm] and bottom [130 mm] with old repair to verso; paperfault? repaired near lower centrefold; 3 short tears to lower edge, repaired with archival tape to verso; old ink numbers to verso. Frederick de Wit [1630-1706] De Wit was one of the most prominent and successful map engravers and publishers in Amsterdam in the period following the decline of the Blaeu and Jansson establishments, from which he acquired many copper plates when they were dispersed at auction. His output covered most aspects of map making: sea charts, world atlases, an atlas of the Netherlands, 'town books' covering plans of towns and cities in the Netherlands and Europe, and wall maps. His work, notable for the beauty of the engraving and colouring, was very popular and editions were issued many years after his death by Pieter Mortier and Covens and Mortier. Frederick de Wit was born Frederick Hendricksz or Frederick son of Hendrick.he moved from his home town of Gouda to Amsterdam in 1648 and by 1654 he had opened a printing office and shop under the name "De Drie Crabben" (the Three Crabs) which was also the name of his house on the Kalverstraat. In 1655, De Wit changed the name of his shop to the "Witte Pascaert" (the White Chart). Under this name De Wit and his firm became internationally known. Dating De Wit's atlases and maps is considered difficult because usually no dates were recorded on the maps and their dates of publication extended over many years Koeman III: Wit 8 /73.

        Mercurio e Argo Mercurio e Argo

      1680 - Acquaforte, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con sottilissimi margini, applicata su antico supporto di collezione, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Marco Sanmartino o Sammartino fu un pittore napoletano vissuto nella seconda metà del XVII secolo, secondo il Bartsch attivo verso il 1680. Il Malvasia lo cita con il nome di Sanmarchi veneziano, quasi certamente per il soggiorno dell’artista nella città lagunare. Del Sammartino pittore sono noti ed apprezzati soprattutto i paesaggi con piccole figure, elogiati per il loro rispetto alla veridicità dei luoghi, accortezza e cura nei dettagli. Queste qualità divengono, nell’opera grafica, un uso equilibrato del contrasto luminoso fra figure in primo piano e fondali con rocce, casolari e quinte arboree, secondo una tradizione figurativa che da Antonio Tempesta si era tramandata fino a Filippo Liagno. L’attività incisoria del Sammartino si colloca in un preciso rapporto storico, formale e stilistico con quella di Filippo Napoletano. Opera molto rara. Etching, signed in plate at lower left. Magnificent proof, rich in shades, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, applied on antique mounting of collection, in perfect condition. Marco Sammartino Sammartino or was a Neapolitan painter lived in the second half of the seventeenth century , according to Bartsch active around 1680 . Malvasia mentions it under the name of Sanmarchi Venetian, almost certainly the artist's stay in Venice. Sammartino painter known and appreciated especially landscapes with small figures, praised for their respect to the veracity of the sites, forethought and attention to detail. These qualities become, in the graphic, balanced use of luminance contrast between foreground figures and backdrops with rocks, tree houses and scenes, according to a figurative tradition that was handed down by Antonio Tempesta until Filippo Liagno. The engraving activity Sammartino is placed in a precise historical relationship, formal and stylistic with that of Filippo Napoletano. Very rare.

        De' capricci medicinali dell'eccell. medico, e cirugico M. Leonardo Fioravanti bolognese. Libri quattro. Di nuovo di secreti importantissimi ampliati, quali cosi a professori di fisica, come di cirugia erano grandemente necessarij . Al Clariss. & Eccellentiss. Sign. Tomaso Cinelli, Medico Fisico..

      In Venetia, appresso Giacomo Zattoni, 1680. In 16°, cart. rustico coevo, tit. calligrafato al dorso, pp. 342 [es. mutilo dell pp. 343-348 e dell'occhietto]-(16nn di tavole di Indice). Anche questa ediz. del 1680 è introdotta da un interessante ragionamento dell'Autore che invita i lettori a non meravigliarsi di come, nel suo libro, vengano trattate la medicina e la chirurgia, in quanto egli non seguirà né Ippocrate né Galeno né Avicenna ma solamente il suo giudizio e la sua esperienza. Fioravanti cerca di scoprire la verità per "saper curare le infermità degli uomini e delle donne del Mondo". Secondo lui i segreti riportati sono razionali ed inoltre "..in questo volume non si disputano come in altri cose incerte nè teoriche false, ma solamente si mostra un bellissimo ordine di medicare". L'opera è divisa in IV libri con distinti argomenti: nel primo si insegna a conoscere "..diversi segni delle cose naturali", nel secondo "..si mostra il modo di fare varij e diversi medicamenti utilissimi.." nel terzo "..dell'Alchimia dell'huomo e dell'alchimia minerale...", nel quarto "..belli discorsi filosofici e medicinali..". Interessante il capitolo sedicesimo del primo libro dove, affrontando temi filosofici, Fioravanti afferma che la medicina viene considerata un dono di Dio per poter curare la generazione umana, sia adoperando la chirurgia, sia i medicamenti. Le pp. 343-348 sono in questo es. riprodotte in digitale su carta antica. Discreta copia, con qualche fascicolo allentato e una macchia di inchiostro al taglio superiore del volume che va ad interessare parzialmente anche il margine bianco superiore di qualche carta.

        Magnae Tartariae, Magni Mogolis Imperii Iaponia et Chinae Nova Descriptio

      Amsterdam 1680 - carta geografica raffigurante la parte settentrionale del continente, con Russia Asiatica, Cina, Giappone e Corea, tratta dal "Atlas Major". Incisione in rame, bellissima coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A beautiful example of Frederick de Wit's c. 1680 map of Tartary. The map covers from just north of the Arctic Circle to Formosa south to the the Bay of Bengal and Formosa, and from the Caspian Sea to Hokkaido or Yedso. Although parts of China, Japan, and northern India were somewhat mapped, most of northeastern Asia was fully unknown to western cartographers. The continent has here been given a curious rounded form that may be suggestive of a northeasterly route to Asia. Both the Great Wall of China and the Gobi Desert are clearly delineated. At the western edge of the map the overlarge Caspain Sea is erroneously mapped on an east-west rather than north-south axis. This map was published both independently and as part of various complied and composite atlases. Copperplate, very good condition. Dimensioni 555 440mm
