        Indiarum Occidentalium Tractus Littorales cum Insulis Caribicis. / Pascaert van Westindien ende Caribise Eylanden

      Frederick de Wit, Paris 1680 - Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand color. Image measures 19" x 22 1/4". c.1680. This rare and beautiful sea chart of the West Indies is an unrecorded edition by Frederick de Wit. The chart covers Central America, West Indies, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. Unlike the first state of this map, this variation details the west coast of Central America and the southern coastline of New England. The Chesapeake Bay region is also more detailed and New Amsterdam and New Netherlands is labeled. The map is annotated throughout with sailing directions, rhumb lines and beautiful illustrations of galleons. Its most intriguing feature, however, is the cartouche in the upper left corner. A Native American chief presides whether with pride or ignorance is unclear before a group of cannibals. Two men attack another chained to a tree, while a third conspirator spins a spit bearing a human leg. The scene is grim to be sure, yet it conveys a widely held conviction about Native Americans first reported following Columbus's initial expedition. Seen as evidence of "savagery," such ritualistic practices fueled European colonial sentiment. The civilized self-image of these colonizers is matched here by the skillful original hand-coloring of the map, which demonstrates both historical color conventions and the intricacy of the practice. The lower cartouche, thusly embellished, provides fascinating detail as well. A camelid peeks its head out behind a mother balancing her baby and a parasol during a bumpy ride on an ox. Two other figures sit amongst crates and barrels, likely sorting goods for the market. There are two European deliberately positioned above the title looking down on the scene, indicating their position of primacy over the Native Americans. The map is in good condition with rich dark impression and overall toning. Minor foxing and offsetting. Edges show some stains, not affecting printer image. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world. By 1671, he was producing large folio atlases for both his shop and individual patrons that could contain anywhere between 15 and 150 maps. Today, these atlases grace the collections of many museums and institutions as evidence of the vibrant cartographic trade in Amsterdam in the middle- and late-17th century. A stunning and desirable map from the golden age of Caribbean piracy.

        Map of Crete - Frederick de Wit, c. 1680.

      MAP OF CRETE?Insula Candia Ejusque Fortificatio. ?Copper engraving by Frederick de Wit, published in Amsterdam c. 1680, with original hand colouring. Size: 46 x 54,5 cm.One of the most decorative maps of Crete, based on the map by S?bastian de Pontault Beaulieu, a French military engineer who had mapped the fortifications of many Mediterranean islands. His map of Crete was published in 1674, only five years after Crete had fallen to the Ottomans after a 21-year siege (the longest siege in history).The Siege of Candia [modern Heraklion], the capital of Crete, was the central event of the sixth Turkish?Venetian War, better known as Cretan War, or War of Candia. It was a conflict between the Republic of Venice and her allies (the Knights of Malta, the Papal States, French volunteers, and pirates from Mani) against the Ottoman Empire and the Barbary States, fought over the Venetian possession of Crete. The war lasted from 1645 to 1669, and was fought in Dalmatia, Crete, and in numerous naval engagements in the Aegean Sea.On the map the seas around the island are filled with galleons and galleys representing this epic struggle. Above the map the title is on a banner held aloft by putti, and the corners have plans of the towns and fortifications of Chania and Heraklion. Under the map are plans of the fortifications of Spinalonga, Rethymno, Tylissos [Thine] and Suda.Price: ?1.450,-.

      ONZE ZUIDERZEE, UITVALSBASIS VOOR DE WERELD "Paskaarte van de Zuyder Zee. Met alle des zelfs inkoomende Gaaten: soo als die op 't Zeekarte konnen Bezeylt worden?, kopergravure, uitgegeven na 1680 ?met privilegie voor 15 Jaer, by Joannis van Keulen Boek-verkooper en Graadboog-maaker aande Nieuwbrug inde Gekroonde Lootsman? te Amsterdam. Afm. (prent): 51,2 x 58,2 cm.Met twee cartouches met mythologische figuren, waarin de benaming van de kaart en de schaal in Spaanse-, Duitse- en Engelse- en Franse mijlen wordt aangegeven. In het andere cartouche met wapen van Amsterdam, staat het adres van Van Keulen.De Zuiderzee lag vol zandbanken en andere ondieptes. Daardoor was het een moeilijk vaarwater. Vooral in het noordelijke deel - de huidige Waddenzee - konden schepen met moeite een route vinden. Daarvoor gebruikten schippers kaarten als deze waarop dieptes, zandbanken, bakens en visfuiken zijn aangegeven. Johannes van Keulen was de grondlegger van het bekende uitgevershuis dat zich gedurende ruim twee eeuwen richtte op het publiceren van zeeatlassen en zeemansgidsen.De belangrijkste uitgaven van de Van Keulens zijn de ?Zee-atlas ofte Water-werelt? en de zeemansgids ?De Groote Ligtende Zee-Fakkel?. Van Keulen was zelf geen cartograaf, daarvoor had hij de medewerking van mathematicus Claes Jansz Vooght ingeroepen. Vooght is de maker van de meeste kaarten die Johannes van Keulen heeft uitgegeven.In 1743 werd Johannes van Keulen aangesteld tot kaartenmaker van de VOC. De firma behield de positie van kaartenmaker tot de opheffing van de Compagnie. Al v??r 1743 trad de firma Van Keulen op als leverancier van stuurmansgereedschappen en kaarten aan de VOC. Vanaf 1728 werden daar geregeld zeemansgidsen aangekocht ten behoeve van de equipage.Vanaf het begin van de achttiende eeuw beschikte de firma Van Keulen over getekende, grootschalige kaarten van het VOC-gebied waarvan getekende kopie?n geleverd werdenLiteratuur: Koeman Atlantes Neerlandici IV, Keu 64 (34)Prijs: ?2.450,- (incl. lijst).

        CLITIE, NOUVELLE. [Druckermarke, "Sphère", Rahir "M. 24"]

      Amsterdam Elzevier 1680 - 1 Blatt (Titel), 206 Seiten. Mit fünf durchgezogenen Pergamentstreifen gehefteter Pergamentband der Zeit mit seitlich überstehenden Schutzkanten und goldgeprägtem Rückentitel in ebenfalls goldgeprägter Rahmung. (12,7 x 8 cm, bzw. 12,5 x 6,8 cm; Buchblock: 1,5 cm) 12°. - Extrem seltener, anonym erschienener Roman mit bis heute ungeklärter Autorschaft - Pieters 162 auf S. 356 ("Cet ouvrage est sorti des presses Elseviriennes d'Amsterdam: il se trouve aussi marqué d'un astérisque dans le catal. offic. de 1681."). Willems 1576 ("Petit volume imprimé par Daniel Elzevier, et cité avec l'astérisque dans le catal. de 1681."). Winterthur 205. Vergl. Brunet V, col. 1747. Goldsmid I, 92. Rahir 1733 ("Impr. par Daniel Elz. d'Amst."). Berghman 1166 ("Roman des plus rares, dont l'auteur est resté inconnu."). Socoloff I A 125. Copinger 946. Weddigen 052. OCLC 10678278. Der Einband mit größeren Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren, etwas verzogen, fleckig, die Innengelenke angebrochen, die Vorsätze fleckig. Innen, obwohl häufig gelesen, erstaunlich frisch. Seite 57 in der oberen Ecke mit Fehlstelle durch Knick, die Seitenzahl ging dabei verloren. Es handelt sich um eine verworrene Liebes- und Dreiecksgeschichte, die extrem junge und hübsche Prinzessin liebt zunächst den einen Galan, glaubt ihn im Kampf gefallen, heiratet den anderen, der dann ersteren in einer Art Duell umbringt. 1688 erschien von Richard Blackbourn in London "Clitie, a novel", in der Literatur als ein Rarum früher englischer Literatur bezeichnet. Ob es sich dabei um ein eigenständiges Werk, oder eine Übersetzung des hier beschriebenen Titels handelt, läßt sich mit unseren Mitteln nicht klären, die handelnden Personen scheinen identisch zu sein, die Seitenzahl annährend ebenfalls. Die bayerische Staatsbibliothek schreibt ihr Exemplar der "Clitie", 1680 bei Barbin gedruckt, Blackbourn, die russische Nationalbibliothek und der "worldcat" Préchac zu. Vergl. auch A.-B. Peter "Vom Selbstverlust zur Selbstfindung. Erzählte Eifersucht im Frankreich des 17. Jahrhunderts" (Berlin, 2002), S. 295. Frau Peter zitiert dort die Ausgabe als anonym erschienen und entscheidet sich weder für Blackbourn, noch für Préchac. Neben der schönen Druckermarke mit zwei Schmuckinitialen, sowie zwei Vignetten ausgestattet. Die erste, auf Seite 104, am Ende des ersten Teiles ähnelt Rahir 86, vielleicht über die Jahre so stark abgenutzt, daß sie hier zweifelsfrei nicht zu identifizieren ist, denn der Abdruck ist schwach. Als Schlußvignette, am Ende des zweiten Teiles auf Seite 206, diente Rahir 88, ebenfalls etwas blass abgedruckt. Provenienz: Gruben, N.N., Weddigen Auf dem Titelblatt ein ursprünglicher Besitzeintrag von alter Hand: "W. A. Gruben 1776" durch überschriebene Initialen in "M." und "Al." vom Erben "aktualisiert".

        Tartary, China, Japan - De Wit, 1680.

      ?Magnae Tartariae Magni Mogolis Imperii Iaponiae et Chinae Nova Descriptio?. Copper engraving published 1680 by Frederick de Wit in Amsterdam. Original hand colouring. Size: 44 x 55 cm.Map of Northeastern Asia, extending from the Island of Formosa, the Ganges and the eastern part of the Caspian Sea to Yedso, Tartaria, Siberia and Molgomzaia in Russian Asia in the North. No western exploration has yet reached Asia?s northeast coast, and we see a conjectural rounded coastline. Plinius? Tazata Island appears north of the Arctic Circle, and a sense of Tartary?s mountain ranges is given, but the topography is by no means accurate. There is geographical and historical commentary throughout Tartary.The Great Wall is shown pictorially, and many cities are named in China and northern India. The fictional Lake Chiang Mai is still shown as the source of the great rivers of Southeast Asia. Yedso (Hokkaido) is shown in a very limited way, with partial coastlines. A very interesting map, from a period when Europe?s knowledge of China has greatly improved, but the depiction of northern and central Asia remains largely speculative.Decorated with finely engraved mountains and trees.Price ?525,-.

Afm. (prent): 51,2 x 58,2 cm.Met twee cartouches met mythologische figuren, waarin de benaming van de kaart en de schaal in Spaanse-, Duitse- en Engelse- en Franse mijlen wordt aangegeven. In het andere cartouche met wapen van Amsterdam, staat het adres van Van Keulen.De Zuiderzee lag vol zandbanken en andere ondieptes. Daardoor was het een moeilijk vaarwater. Vooral in het noordelijke deel - de huidige Waddenzee - konden schepen met moeite een route vinden. Daarvoor gebruikten schippers kaarten als deze waarop dieptes, zandbanken, bakens en visfuiken zijn aangegeven. Johannes van Keulen was de grondlegger van het bekende uitgevershuis dat zich gedurende ruim twee eeuwen richtte op het publiceren van zeeatlassen en zeemansgidsen.De belangrijkste uitgaven van de Van Keulens zijn de ?Zee-atlas ofte Water-werelt? en de zeemansgids ?De Groote Ligtende Zee-Fakkel?. Van Keulen was zelf geen cartograaf, daarvoor had hij de medewerking van mathematicus Claes Jansz Vooght ingeroepen. Vooght is de maker van de meeste kaarten die Johannes van Keulen heeft uitgegeven.In 1743 werd Johannes van Keulen aangesteld tot kaartenmaker van de VOC. De firma behield de positie van kaartenmaker tot de opheffing van de Compagnie. Al v??r 1743 trad de firma Van Keulen op als leverancier van stuurmansgereedschappen en kaarten aan de VOC. Vanaf 1728 werden daar geregeld zeemansgidsen aangekocht ten behoeve van de equipage.Vanaf het begin van de achttiende eeuw beschikte de firma Van Keulen over getekende, grootschalige kaarten van het VOC-gebied waarvan getekende kopie?n geleverd werdenLiteratuur: Koeman Atlantes Neerlandici IV, Keu 64 (34)Prijs: ?2.450,- (incl. lijst).

        Nova et Accurata Wolgæ Fluminis, olim Rha dicti Delineatio. Auctore Adamo Oleario.

      1680 - Oxford: Jan Jansson van Waesbergen, Moses Pitt & Stephan Swert, c.1680. Coloured. 470 x 550mm. A map of the Volga River from Nizhniy Novgorod (birthplace of Maxim Gorky) south to the Caspian Sea, marking Astrakan. Adam Ölschläger (latinised as Olearius) visited Persia between 1635 & 1639 as secretary to a mission from Holstein in Germany to open up a trade route for Persian silk via Russia and the Caspian Sea. His map was one of the first published in the west to show the Caspian as being longer than wider, something he himself has witnessed. This map was originally published by Jan Jansson in 1658; after his death the plates passed to his son-in-law, Jan Jansson van Waesbergen. He went into partnership with two English publishers, Pitt and Swart, to produce a twelve-volume 'English Atlas' to compete with Blaeu's. Between 1680 and 1683 four volumes of the atlas and the text for the fifth were printed in Oxford, but the mounting costs were too much. Production ceased and for a time Pitt was locked up in the Fleet Prison for debt, making this state of the map quite uncommon. The differences are van Waesbergen & Pitt's names as publishers and a grid engraved over the map.

        Tartary, China, Japan - De Wit, 1680.

      ?Magnae Tartariae Magni Mogolis Imperii Iaponiae et Chinae Nova Descriptio?. Copper engraving published 1680 by Frederick de Wit in Amsterdam. Original hand colouring. Size: 44 x 55 cm.Map of Northeastern Asia, extending from the Island of Formosa, the Ganges and the eastern part of the Caspian Sea to Yedso, Tartaria, Siberia and Molgomzaia in Russian Asia in the North. No western exploration has yet reached Asia?s northeast coast, and we see a conjectural rounded coastline. Plinius? Tazata Island appears north of the Arctic Circle, and a sense of Tartary?s mountain ranges is given, but the topography is by no means accurate. There is geographical and historical commentary throughout Tartary.The Great Wall is shown pictorially, and many cities are named in China and northern India. The fictional Lake Chiang Mai is still shown as the source of the great rivers of Southeast Asia. Yedso (Hokkaido) is shown in a very limited way, with partial coastlines. A very interesting map, from a period when Europe?s knowledge of China has greatly improved, but the depiction of northern and central Asia remains largely speculative.Decorated with finely engraved mountains and trees.Price ?525,-.

      Barcinone, ex Typis Antonii Lacavalleria, s.d. (c.1680). - Petit in-8. 48pp. Plein vélin souple du temps (un peu raccourci). Edition barcelonaise des célèbres poèmes pédagogiques du poète mallorquin Miquel Veri, mort en 1487 à l'âge de 18 ans en Italie où il avait suivi son père ce qui le fit parfois considérer, par erreur, d'origine italienne. Pour cette raison son nom est souvent italianisé comme "Michele Verino". Publiés dès 1487, ces poèmes exhortant la jeunesse à la tempérance connurent un grand succès tout au long du 16e siècle et ils furent souvent réimprimés.

        Map of Crete - Frederick de Wit, c. 1680.

      MAP OF CRETE?Insula Candia Ejusque Fortificatio. ?Copper engraving by Frederick de Wit, published in Amsterdam c. 1680, with original hand colouring. Size: 46 x 54,5 cm.One of the most decorative maps of Crete, based on the map by S?bastian de Pontault Beaulieu, a French military engineer who had mapped the fortifications of many Mediterranean islands. His map of Crete was published in 1674, only five years after Crete had fallen to the Ottomans after a 21-year siege (the longest siege in history).The Siege of Candia [modern Heraklion], the capital of Crete, was the central event of the sixth Turkish?Venetian War, better known as Cretan War, or War of Candia. It was a conflict between the Republic of Venice and her allies (the Knights of Malta, the Papal States, French volunteers, and pirates from Mani) against the Ottoman Empire and the Barbary States, fought over the Venetian possession of Crete. The war lasted from 1645 to 1669, and was fought in Dalmatia, Crete, and in numerous naval engagements in the Aegean Sea.On the map the seas around the island are filled with galleons and galleys representing this epic struggle. Above the map the title is on a banner held aloft by putti, and the corners have plans of the towns and fortifications of Chania and Heraklion. Under the map are plans of the fortifications of Spinalonga, Rethymno, Tylissos [Thine] and Suda.Price: ?1.450,-.

        Città di Vercelli

      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. The Hague The Hague 590 510

        Totius Iutiæ Generalis Accurata delincatio. Apud Janssonio-Waesbergios, et Mosem Pitt.

      *** Partielt Danmarkskort : Dækker Jylland, Als, Fyn med omliggende øer samt Sjælland. Kobberstik i sort/hvid. 44 x 56 cm. Udgivet af Moses Pitt i Oxford ca. 1680. Med vertikal midterfold som ved udgivelsen. Papirmål : 59 x 69 cm. Fint eksemplar. I begyndelsen af det 17. århundrede var Amsterdam blevet en af de driftigste handelsbyer i Europa : Hjemsted for Hollandsk Ostindisk Kompagni og centrum for diamanthandel og bankvirksomhed. Samtidig blev Amsterdam den vigtigste by i Europa for fremstilling af og handel med landkort - først og fremmest fordi Mercators Atlas fra 1606 og frem blev udgivet i Amsterdam. Gerard Mercators (1512-1594) skelsættende Atlas udkom i tre dele i Duisburg i årene 1585-1595. I 1604 købte kartografen og forlæggeren Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) kobberpladerne. I 1606 udsendte han i Amsterdam en ny, forøget udgave af Mercators Atlas; Hondius havde tilføjet ca. 40 af sine egne kort, hvorfor dette Atlas blev kendt som Mercator-Hondius Atlas. Sammen med sønnerne Jodocus II og Henricus lagde Hondius senior navn til de mange forøgede udgaver af Mercators Atlas - på flere sprog - der dominerede korthandelen de næste 20-30 år. I samme periode virkede en anden vigtig kartograf og kortforlægger : Willem Blaeu (1571-1638). Blaeu slog sig i 1599 ned i Amsterdam, og her grundlagde han et firma, der fremstillede jord- og himmelglober samt instrumenter til præcisionsmålinger. Inden længe begyndte han også at udsende søkort-atlas, og i en lang periode var Willem Blaeu den førende producent af søkort i Nederlandene. Omkring 1630 var konkurrencen imidlertid blevet så hård på dette feldt, at Willem Blaeu ville udvide repertoiret - han begyndte at arbejde på et atlas med landkort over hele den kendte verden. Det skulle indeholde de mest ajourførte kort, og som følge heraf gik det meget langsomt. I 1635 udsendte Willem Blaeu sammen med sønnen Johannes de to første bind af "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" ("Atlas over hele Verden"). Bindene gjorde stor lykke, og de næste ca. 35 år udsendte Blaeu Familien mange forskellige atlasudgaver, hvoraf den største var i 11 bind - den drivende kraft var Johannes Blaeu (1596-1673), og han var en god del af tiden i hård konkurrence med Johannes Janssonius.Johannes Janssonius (1588-1664). Faderen var boghandler og forlægger i Arnhem, hvor han var virksom i årene 1597-1629. Blandt andet publicerede han sammen med Hondius Familien flere udgaver i miniatureformat af Gerard Mercators Atlas i årene 1607 til 1621.I 1612 giftede Johannes Janssonius sig med en datter af Jodocus Hondius, slog sig ned i Amsterdam og virkede her i mange år som selvstændig bogforlægger og kortudgiver. I perioden 1630 til 1638 var Janssonius i kompagniskab med svogeren Henricus Hondius, og fra 1633 begynder Janssonius' navn at optræde på titelbladet i Mercator-Hondius Atlas. Efter 1638 blev titlens "Atlas" ændret til "Atlas Novus", undertiden "Novus Atlas", i begge tilfælde at gengive med "Nyt Atlas" - en beretiget ændring, for så vidt som Janssonius stræbte efter at ajourføre sine kort. Ikke mange år senere blev det nu stærkt reviderede atlas udsendt under Janssonius' navn alene - Mercator og Hondius forsvandt fra titelbladet.Efter Johannes Janssonius' død i 1664 arvede svigersønnen Johannes Waesbergen mange af kobberpladerne. En del år senere stillede Waesbergen kobberpladerne til rådighed for Moses Pitt, som ville lave et engelsk atlas af samme omfang som de store atlasser af Blaeu og Janssonius. I årene 1680-83 kom 4 bind med kort og tekst samt et femte bind med tekst alene af "The English Atlas", så stoppede udgivelsen. Moses Pitt var ruineret og måtte to år i gældsfængsel. Nærværende eksemplar af Johannes Janssonius' partielle Danmarkskort er fra denne torso.
