Matthaus Merian
Frankfurt 1680 - Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the “Great Voyages”. Born and trained in Basel, Switzerland in the early 1600’s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry’s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper. “Topographia Germaniae” was published around 1680 in partnership with Zeiller Martin who wrote the text. “Topographia Germaniae” was one of the larges and most comprehensive publishing’s of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, Topographia Germaniae is comprised of 30 volumes with more than 2,000 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cit … [Click Below for Full Description]

WIT, Frederick de
Amsterdam., c.1680. [The Holy Land and Palestine.] Size: 550 x 460 mm. Copper engraving. Original colour. Good margins. Single wormholes on each side, small hole (2mm) at lower right. Unobtrusive blind stamp. Centrefold strengthened. Very good condition A beautiful map of the Holy Land, with title cartouche at top centre, flanked by garlands and cherubs; ships at sea; inset view of tented tabernacle guarded by the twelve tribes, within decorated cartouche; two scales at lower right. Frederick de Wit was a prolific map publisher and engraver. During his lifetime he produced not only highly decorative and desirable atlases, but also wall maps, sea charts and "town books" of major Dutch and European cities. (He acquired the copperplates of these town books from Abraham Wolfgang sometime after 1674, who in turn had acquired them directly from the house of Blaeu and Jansson.) In 1688 de Wit obtained a privilege from the States General to publish his maps; atlases published after this date carry the mark "cum privilegio". De Wit's maps enjoyed high regard and popularity, and were produced for many years after the closure of his business (Tooley, Dictionary of Mapmakers Q-Z, p. 402).

Engraved additional title, 26 engraved maps and plates (1 folding map, 4 folding plates, 21 double-page plates), 70 engraved illustrations, occasional engraved initials and head-pieces. Contemporary speckled calf, neatly rebacked and cornered, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, dated at the foot of the spine First edition in French of this important work on Japan, a work whose illustrations "represent a high-water mark in book illustrations of the 17th century" (Lach). Designed to complement his similar work on China, this work was compiled by Montanus from records of Jesuit missions to Japan in 1649 and 1661, and published by Jan Van Meurs for the Dutch East India Company. Van Meurs had received the necessary permission to publish both a Dutch and a French edition in 1664, but it was not until 1669 that the Dutch edition appeared, to be followed shortly after by translations in German and in English using Van Meurs plates. In the present edition, the frontispiece and four of the original large plates were recut, and many of the text illustrations are reversed or mirrored. This edition is the first to include the plate of Fort Zeelandia in Taiwan.

VLASBLOM, Ludovico (fl.1646-70)
[Amsterdam: van Keulen, 1680]. Copper-engraved celestial map, with full original colour. Mild soiling, expertly repaired tear right hand margin, barely intruding on image. 17 1/4 x 21 1/4 inches. A very decorative double hemisphere star chart from van Keulen's "Boeck zee-Kaardt" This double hemisphere celestial chart by Louis Vlasbloem, called Ludovico Vlasblom on the chart, is derived from the celestial hemispheres in Joan Blaeu's world map. The small spheres depict the geo-centric and helio- centric configurations of the solar system. The very energetic expansion of Dutch maritime trade in the late 16th century and first two thirds of the 17th provided Europe with new astronomical knowledge of the Southern hemisphere, and in 1598 twelve new constellations formed by Petrus Plancius appeared on a Hondius globe. These were added to the Ptolemaic canon of 48 constellations making a total of 60. The newly discovered constellations of the southern hemisphere include: Pavo, Phoenix, Indus, and others, and Coma Berenices in the north. Stott, Celestial Charts, p 66- 67.

London: Printed for R. Wellington, at the Dolphin and Crown, in St. Paul's Churchyard; and E. Rmball, at the Post-House in Russe. circa 1680 Duodecimo, 6 x 3.5 inches. Fifth edition, hitherto unrecorded. B-F12. 115 pages. This seems to be an unrecorded edition of this title. The Secret History was included in a book entitled "A Collection of Pleasant Novels," published by the same printer, in an undated edition that was advertised in the end of 1699 and came out sometime in 1700, according to the Term Catalogue. The next listing for this title in both references was printed in 1703, thus passing over this therefore unrecorded edition of 1702. An engraved allegorical frontispiece is bound opposite the title. This is copy is bound in full modern sheepskin, a buff color. The leaves are occasionally spotted, with no great defects. Some contemporary inscriptions appear on the endleaves. By the late seventeenth century, Elizabeth's love life became a subject of obsession in Englnad and especially in France. The Secret History of the Most Renowned Q. Elizabeth, and the E. of Essex in the most famous of the absurd tattle-tale books, but not the last. There is also The Secret History of the Duke of Alancon and Q. Elizabeth: A True History (1691), written in a crisp documentary style, and the Secret Memoirs of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester (1706). These in turn have inspired nineteenth-century operas and an endless stream of modern pulp fiction." (quoted from Elizabeth I: Ruler and Legende

Williams, William
London: Printed by Assigns of John Bill, Thomas Newcomb, and Henry Hills, 1680. First printing. Exotic. Fine. 8 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Folio. 48 numbered pages. Pages bright, clean and with uncut edges. Bound in full modern sealskin with fur by John Field (with binder's ticket); Provenance: Library of Harry and Virginia Walton. ESTCP2760. Notable for several debates over responses to the Popish Plot, an alleged Catholic plot to assassinate King Charles II, which led to more than a dozen executions, substantial anti-Catholic hysteria, and (eventually) a perjury conviction for the "discoverer" of the plot. Harry and Virginia Walton were lifelong residents of Covington, Virginia, a small town in the Allegheny Mountains. Harry was a graduate of Lynchburg College, and Virginia was a graduate of the Lynchburg General School of Nursing. Although largely unknown to the general public, the Waltons' reputation as collectors was widely respected in bibliophile and academic circles, and items from their collection were exhibited at numerous colleges, universities and art centers. After their deaths, the original Walton collection was the subject of a series of very successful auctions in New York and London. John Field was an expert leather bookbinder associated with W.J. Barrow Restoration Shop (Richmond, VA).
