- Kromayer, Johann : [16] Bl., 436 S., [3] Bl. : Kupfertitel. // Alberti, Valentin: 494 S. 17 Bll. Pergament der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. - KROMAYER, Johannes, führender Kirchenmann und Schulreformator Thüringens im Zeitalter der luth. Orthodoxie (1576 – 1643). 1597 Student in Leipzig, schon 1598 Pfarrer in Eisleben, 1600 Magister, 1613 Hofprediger und 1627 Generalsuperintendent von Weimar. - Nach dem Tode von Albert Grawer (1575-1617) mit der Schulinspektion betraut, führte K., aufgrund eines schon 1614 auf Anregung der Herzoginmutter Dorothea Maria (+ 1617) begonnenen Privatschulversuches, unter den Herzögen Johann Ernst (1615-1626) und Wilhelm (1626-1662) selbständig die »neue« pädagogische »Methode« von Wolfgang Ratke (Ratichius) (1571-1635) an der Weimarer Stadtschule ein und verfaßte dazu notwendige Lehrbücher, darunter »die älteste in deutscher Sprache verfaßte und für den Elementarunterricht bestimmte Deutsche Grammatik« (H. Paul). War diese Schulreform »dem Wort Gottes konform« im Sinne des mit ihr zugleich eingeführten »Compendium locorum theologicorum« von Leonhart Hutter (1610), so empfand K. dagegen intuitiv richtig »die neuen Geister«, d.h. einige der Reformer um Herzog Ernst den Frommen (1626-1675) von Gotha als Anfang einer Moralisierung der Rechtfertigungslehre im Bunde mit absolutistischer Staatskontrolle: daher setzte er der seit 1636 vorbereiteten Generalkirchenvisitation passiven Widerstand entgegen. Ging diese Frömmigkeitsbewegung schon zu K.s Lebzeiten über sein von der Spätreformation des 16. Jhs. geprägtes Kirchenideal hinweg, le … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thorton, John
London, 1683. Engraving with original hand color Framed size: 31 1/8" x 40 1/8" Paper size: 19 ¾" x 29" John Thornton was an English chart-maker and map publisher who revised the earlier work of Edward Wright, Robert Morden and William Berry to construct his excellent ".Mapp of the World." Thornton's beautifully colored map comprises of two sheets and uses Mercator's projection. In this way, it contrasts greatly with contemporary maps by Dutch and French cartographers who characteristically presented the world in two hemispheres. In Thornton's work, the coastlines of the continents are as detailed as seventeenth-century cartographical knowledge would permit. As such, areas in the Indian sub-continent, the north-east parts of Asia, the northwest parts of America, and Australasia are rather loosely delineated. California is also falsely represented as an island, and Novaya Zemlya is shown as a peninsula (in keeping with a 1674 map by Nicolas Witsen). In addition, the interior of North America lacks much detail, and the Great Lakes system is only moderately defined. The most significant feature of the map, however, is the marking of two observations of the magnetic variation just east and west of the straits of Magellan. These observations were made in 1650 during the expedition of Sir John Narborough. On the upper-right corner of the map is also a dedicatory cartouche to Sir James Hayes, Kt., deputy-governor of the Hudson's Bay Company. This is an extraordinarily rare first state example of Thornton's monumental map, and was originally included in his Atla … [Click Below for Full Description]
