Flechier, Espirit:
Seconde Edition by , Paris: 1680. Good in a 17th century binding of full leather covered boards with five raised bands on the spine with only fragments of the backstrip remaining, but enough to show gilt tool work and gilt text in the compartments. In subsequent years to preserve the binding the spine area was heavily varnished. In the area where the backstrip has been lost the underlying sewing supports (cords) are visible. The front and rear joints seem to be cracked but the varnish continues to hold the book together with the aid of the still strong front and rear hinges. A 16mo measuring 6 1/4" by 3 1/2" with two recent prior owner's names on the first free end page. 326 pages of text.

DE WIT, Frederick
Amsterdam,: c., 1680.. Engraved map, 460 x 560 mm., superb handcolouring; in fine condition, framed. Fine early map of the East Indies showing the discoveries of Tasman by Frederick de Wit, at a time when he was one of the foremost map-makers in Holland. His firm's 'maps were distinguished by their excellent craftsmanship, exactness and beauty...' (Schilder).This map stretches from Persia in the west to China and Taiwan in the east, and shows northern "Hollandia Nova", bearing three significant place names: "Van Diemens Landt"; "Baya van Diemen" and "Vuyle hoeck" (the last a disparaging term meaning something like "rotten corner" and evidently relating to the inhospitable coastline). All of these relate to Abel Tasman's second voyage of 1644.'Frederick de Wit, an apprentice of William Blaeu... became one of the most prominent and successful map engravers and publishers in Amsterdam following the decline of the Blaeu and Jansson establishments. His work, notable for the beauty of the engraving and colouring, was very popular and editions were issued many years after his death...' (Parry, The Cartography of the East Indian Oceans, p. 118).The map is handcoloured in outline and decorated by a beautiful cartouche showing four dramatically-posed costumed figures of the East.Not in Tooley; Parry, The Cartography of the East Indian Islands, plate 4.29.

BERRY, William (fl. 1669-1708)
London: "Sold by William Berry at ye Sign of the Globe between Charing Cross and Whitehall", 1680. Engraved double-hemispheric world map, period hand-colouring in outline. (Expertly repaired tears at sheet edges). 23 1/4 x 35 1/8 inches. Scarce separately issued seventeenth century English world map. "William Berry, a minor map-seller who sometimes worked in conjunction with Robert Morden, has here adapted the Sanson world map as published by Hubert Jaillot in 1674. Berry has patriotically marked the islands discovered by Drake just off Tierra del Fuego and has added New Albion in the northern part of California, shown as an island. Decoration is minimal except for a cartouche carrying a dedication to Charles II and his coat-of-arms" (Shirley). Other differences from the Sanson map include additional toponyms in North America, reflecting English settlements, including Carolina. The map was offered for sale as a separate sheet and within a composite world atlas offered for sale by Berry. Of the latter, Phillips writes: "This collection of English maps by William Berry is sometimes known as the English Sanson atlas. The maps were published separately at various dates and the atlas was issued without a title page. There are only two other copies of this atlas known, one in the King's collection in the British Museum, where it is regarded as one of the rarest of English atlases."

First edition. Cubero’s was the first circumnavigation performed eastwards, that is, first making his way from Europe to Asia, then America –through Mexico and Cuba- and finally back to Europe instead of the other way around. Cubero (c. 1645 - c. 1697) was a Spanish Priest and missionary, he studied humanities, philosophy and theology; in 1671 the Congregation of Propagande Fide sent him as an Apostolic Preacher to Asia and the East Indies, mission during which he would travel largely across Russia (Moscow), Turkey (Istanbul), Armenia, Persia, etc., making his way to Goa and Madras. In Malacca he will be detained by the Dutch for a short period of time, after which he journeyed once more, this time towards the Philippines, then making the famous route between Manila and Mexico. He set sail across the Caribbean –visiting Cuba- and reached Spain in 1680. “Towards the end of the volume, Cubero describes his experiences of the New World” (Sabin). An interesting fact is that Cubero made most of his route by land –as will later Careri-, thus being constantly in touch with the costumes … [Click Below for Full Description]

The text is taken from the best Elzevir edition of 1676; the Erythraean Index, from the Venetian edition of 1566. The typography, which is extremely beatiful, and not inferior to the best Elzevir editions in octavo, is accompanied with elegant vignettes; and this edition may be considered as a very valuable and commodious one" (Dibdin 4th ed, Volume 2, Pages 549-550). Brunet V:1290, "bonne edition pour l'ancienne collection Variorum". An attractive set of this important edition of Virgil. Te … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cubero?s was the first circumnavigation performed eastwards, that is, first making his way from Europe to Asia, then America ?through Mexico and Cuba- and finally back to Europe instead of the other way around. Cubero (c. 1645 - c. 1697) was a Spanish Priest and missionary, he studied humanities, philosophy and theology; in 1671 the Congregation of Propagande Fide sent him as an Apostolic Preacher to Asia and the East Indies, mission during which he would travel largely across Russia (Moscow), Turkey (Istanbul), Armenia, Persia, etc., making his way to Goa and Madras. In Malacca he will be detained by the Dutch for a short period of time, after which he journeyed once more, this time towards the Philippines, then making the famous route between Manila and Mexico. He set sail across the Caribbean ?visiting Cuba- and reached Spain in 1680. ?Towards the end of the volume, Cubero describes his experiences of the New World? (Sabin).

KEULEN, Johannes van (1678-1727)
Amsterdam: [1680]. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline and with the cartouche fully coloured (expert restoration at sheet edges). 21 x 24 1/4 inches. First state of Van Keulen's dramatic chart of the Pacific, here with beautiful period hand-colouring. "This sea chart typifies the Dutch published image of the Pacific during this era. The southern Pacific contains the usual two islands of Magellan, along with the various landfalls of Le Maire and Tasman" (Suarez). Although centered on the Pacific, the map also encompasses all of North America, including a large depiction of California as an island, and most of South America. The present example is Burden's first state, issued in Van Keulen's 1680 Zee-Atlas and 1683 Zee-Fakkel. The Van Keulen family were chart and instrument makers, and publishers of nautical textbooks, books on sea law, shipbuilding, almanacs and more. Founded by Joannes van Keulen (c.1654- 1715), the firm remained in business for over 200 years.

Brusoni Girolamo
Bartolomeo Zappata,, Torino, 1680 - Volume in folio antico (30x21 cm), legatura coeva in piena pergamena (minime mancanze agli angoli esterni), titolo manoscritto ab antiquo al dorso, bianca, frontespizio con impresa tipografica in silografia, prefazione, sommario degli argomenti di ciascun libro, 8 cc., 1082 pp. Testatine, iniziali e cul-de-lampe ornati. Settima edizione (la prima è del 1656 di Venezia, col titolo "Storia delle guerre d'Italia dal 1635 al 1655"), notevolmente ampliata, di questa pregiata opera storiografica, strutturata annalisticamente ed in parte fondata sull'esperienza diretta, che procurò all'autore l'invito a recarsi a Torino come storiografo e consigliere di corte nel 1676. I libri VII-XIII trattano delle guerre civili in Piemonte e contengono animate descrizioni degli assedi di Ivrea e Torino. Lo scrupoloso lavoro di ricerca e rigoroso vaglio delle fonti, rende quest'opera una fra le più apprezzate ed accurate descrizioni della storia d'Italia, a cui attingerà ancora, nel secolo XIX, Carlo Botta. Sostanzioso trattato, esteso e prezioso di notizie e conoscenze, assolutamente degno d'attenzione. Il volume presentato è in più che buono stato, malgrado la carta "povera" secentesca, è del tutto esente da bruniture, rarissime le mende, solo una lieve gora al margine bianco, esterno, inferiore, alle prime carte. D'altissimo valore e di buona rarità.

Frederick de WIT (1630 - 1706)
Carta geografica dell'isola tratta dall'atlante del De Wit. Su un cartiglio in basso a destra è inserito il titolo. Ai due lati della struttura sono poggiate due sirene e altre creature marine immerse in acqua. Sulla parte superiore sono invece poggiati lo stemma della Sardegna con i quattro mori bendati e quello della Corsica, con un solo moro più grande. La carta presenta un'orografia del tutto arbitraria, infatti l'isola risulta affollata di mucchi di talpa colorati in marron disposti senza un ordine preciso. Anche le posizioni dei fiumi, disegnati con un tratto forte, non sempre corrispondono alla realtà. Viene inoltre segnalata una ricca vegetazione per mezzo di alberelli e ciuffi d'erba, talvolta anche colorati in verde. Le città si individuano per mezzo di diversi simboli, a seconda della loro importanza, case e torri o piante murate colorate in rosso. Il simbolo della città è accompagnato da una croce se essa è sede di diocesi o di archidiocesi. E ricordata anche l'esistenza dei due capi di Cagliari e Lugodori, ma non è segnata alcuna linea di confine tra i due. Bellissimo esemplare in coloritura coeva. A nice map of the islands of Sardinia and Corsica. The coastal information is fairly accurate but much of the interior topography is less precise. The title cartouche features the arms of the Kingdoms of Sardinia and Corsica with their characteristic symbols for the defeated Moors who had once ruled the islands. Original color, good conditions.
