        Insula sive Regnum Siciliae.

      Amsterdam 1680 - Carta geografica per la prima volta inserita nel'operal Atlas Major, circa 1680. Adornata da cartigli contenenti le vedute e piante di Messina, Palermo, Catania e Trapani, oltre ad una pianta di Messina indicata per errore come Milazzo. Dato il successo che riscosse, la carta fu ristampata nei primi decenni del secolo successivo dagli editori Covens e Mortier e dagli Ottens. Per qualità della coloritura e tipologia della carta assegnamo questa lastra alla tipografia Ottens, datando la tiratura intorno al 1730. Incisione in rame, bellissima coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Map published for the first time in the Atlas Major, 1680 circa. It is decorated with cartouches depicting views and plans of Messina, Palermo, Catania and Trapani, and a plan of Messina erroneously called Milazzo. Due to the great outcome, the map was reissued in the first years of 1700 by Covens and Mortier and by the Ottens.

        Occidentalior Tractus Indiarum Orientalium à promontorio Bonae Spei ad C. Comorin

      Amsterdam 1680 - Importante e decorativa carta nautica dell’Africa Orientale, con il Madagascar, la penisola arabica e le coste orientali dell’India. La carta, molto accurata, raffigura le rotte seguite dai navigatori europei nella rotta per l’Oriente e si basa su informazioni della Compagnie delle Indie. Un elaborato cartiglio al centro raffifura gli animali africani e numerosi costumi arabi. La mappa del De Wit è per la prima volta pubblicata nel 1675 nel raro "Orbis Maritimus ofte Zee Atlas" e successivamente inserita in alcuni atlanti compositi e nelle ristampe di Renard contenute nel "Atlas de la Navigation", 1715. Incisione in rame, magnifica coloritura coeva, tracce di piega centrale, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Norwich, The Map of Africa, 256. Dimensioni 555x450. A highly decorative, large sea chart of the East Coast of Africa with Madagascar, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Malabar Coast of India. This was an important region as it depicts an area heavily contested among the Portuguese, Dutch, English, and other European powers, and with its Arab settlements that were in this area from earliest times. This sea chart was first published in De Wit's Orbis Maritmus ofte Zee Atlas of 1675 and appeared in later editions as well. De Wit's sea charts from his Zee Atlas are sought after for their geographical content as well as their attractive cartouches and vignettes. A large, elaborate title cartouche dominates the bottom of the chart. This cartouche shows animals: lions, water Buffalo, snakes, and other animals. Across the top of the cartouche are numerous Arabs, one on horseback. Several sea battles are also depicted in the Indian Ocean. Copper engraving, magnificent contemporary colour, signs of centre fold, otherwise in good condition. Reference: Norwich Map, 256. Norwich, The Map of Africa, 256. Dimensioni 555x450 Dimensioni

        Histoire De La Conqueste D’Espagne Par les Mores, Composee en Arabe par Abulcacim Tariff Abentariq, de la ville de Medine, un des Capitaines qui furent a` cette expedition. Traduite en Espagnol par Michel De Luna de la ville de Grenade.(TWO VOLUMES).

      Claude Barbin, Paris 1680 - Volume I: [22] + 364 pp./ Volume II: [11] + 344 pp. title gilt on raised decorated spine, edges and corners slightly bumped, water stain marks on fly leaves, otherwise set in good condition. The first edition was published in Granada in 1600. The text of this fictitious account of the Arab conquest of Spain, described by its ingenious Moor author, Miguel de Luna, as a Spanish version of a text by one of the invading force, " Abulcacim Tariff Abentariq" of Medina. The book is in two parts, part 2 beginning with a life of king " Jacob Almancor" by a certain Ali Abencufian. The most celebrated Moorish convert to Christianity of his time, Miguel de Luna became an interpreter to the crown. In this capacity, and as a native of Granada, he had access to Arabic manuscripts still existent there, as well as the wealth of legendary material found in Spanish balladry and half-remembered morisco traditions. His work quickly became popular and excited a renewal of interest in the historical period throughout Europe. Nevertheless, his so-called History is fiction. Though a product of Luna’s imagination, modern scholars like Monroe, unlike a host of 19th century investigators, do not relegate his work to the realms of a mere novel: ‘.Luna’s book is something more than just a blatant attempt to foist a falsified Arab history on the public; it is a defence of tolerance, and as such it belongs in the class of novels of the sort of the Abencerraje, which also attempts to show how on the level of virtue and tolerance, both Muslims and Christians could coexist in perfect harmony. It is thus tempting to speculate on the extent to which polemical Morisco literature may have helped shape the image of the ‘Noble Moor’ which became so fashionable in Golden Age Spanish literature and lasted till much later as a literary theme in the rest of Europe.’ Only in recent times has it been appreciated that Luna’s primary objective was to offer a disguise criticism of the treatment of the moriscos. That his intentional fabrication escaped detection for two centuries is an indictment of earlier Spanish scholarship.

        Naukeurige Beschryving van Asie: behelsende de Gewesten van Mesopotamie, Babylonie, Assyrie, Anatolie, of Klein Asie: beneffens eene volkome Beschrijving van gansch Gellukigh, Woest, en Petreesch of Steenigh Arabie.

      Amsterdam: Jacob van Meurs, 1680 - 2 parts bound in 1, folio (317 × 194 mm). Contemporary vellum, title inked on spine, three-line blind tooled border on sides enclosing a large arabesque blind stamp, red speckled edges. Bookplate of Heyse-Tak; front board has "sprung", 19th-century repair to fore edge of engraved title. An attractive copy in a contemporary binding. Letterpress title printed in red and black; engraved pictorial title, 12 double-page engraved view (2 also folding), 3 double-page maps, 22 half-page plates. First edition of Dapper's Asia Minor and Mesopotamia; a German edition followed in 1681. In common with many of his contemporaries such as John Ogilby, the Dutch physician Olfert Dapper (1639–1689) never travelled to visit the lands he wrote about, instead compiling extant translations and other eye-witness accounts to produce lavish and encyclopaedic books for the northern European readership. His and others work thus both reflected and directed growing public interest in distant places and foreign peoples. Dapper was meticulous in using hundreds of published sources and several unpublished ones for each of his books; he did not lift whole passages from one book, but often based a single paragraph on two or three different sources. In this sense his work is indispensible to modern scholarship, as it reflects manuscript sources that have since been lost. Central to the contemporary appeal of Dapper's works were the engravings, which ranged beyond the geographical interest served by maps and views. Clothing, eating habits, religious beliefs, court ceremonies, and judicial practices were all subjects discussed by travellers and missionaries in letters and travel books and were reproduced by Dapper. The plates (which are excellent strong impressions) include superb views of Baghdad, Abydos, Ephesus, Smyrna, Magnesia, Muscat, and Mecca. Among the half-plates are attractive botanical subjects, including the coffee tree (p. 62 in the second part). The Atabey Library copy counts 16 plates but one of these is an additional botanical plate not called-for in the collation. Aracadian Library 8342; Atabey 322; this edition not in Blackmer; Macro 805. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.

This work by George Whitehead is an account of suffering and imprisoned Quakers who were persecuted for their faith and way of life. “A Brief Account” was written to assist in Whitehead’s defense of the right to practice the Quaker religion, but its most important aspect is its detailed examination of Quaker life.

        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,-.

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).

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.").

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".

      ?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,-.

      En Brusselas, por Francisco Foppens, 1680. - in-4. Titre gravé. 4ff. 455pp. 2ff. Plein vélin postérieur, titre inscrit à l'encre au dos. Première édition espagnole de ce fameux livre d'emblèmes par le militaire, diplomate et homme d'Etat espagnol Juan de Borja y Castro (1533-1606), fils de Saint François de Borgia. Parue en latin en 1581, l'édition originale avait vu le jour à Prague, où l'auteur était ambassadeur d'Espagne. L'ouvrage est richement illustré de 220 planches d'emblèmes gravées, en regard desquelles figurent des notices où sont explicitées les implications morales et philosophiques des emblèmes, dans une langue aux accents poétiques. Le frontispice et les emblèmes furent gravés par Richard Collin (1626-1687), graveur du roi Charles II d'Espagne à Bruxelles. "Juan de Borja fue el primero en España en publicar un libro de Empresas, cuando la ingeniosidad todavía no era el objetivo principal de la literatura. Él está en los inicios de un género -anteriormente muy difundido en Italia- que durante un siglo en España va a tener continuadores" (Bravo-Villasante) Brunissure généralisée du papier, plusieurs feuillets réparés sans manque.

        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.

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. La présente version fut donnée en 1512 par l'humaniste basque Martín Ivarra. Rare édition absente du catalogue de la Biblioteca de Catalunya.
