Chatelain Henri Abraham ( 1684 - 1743 ) Amsterdam
Artist: Chatelain Henri Abraham ( - 1743 ) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: 1720 1684 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 37 x 48 - description: Map shows the island of St. Christopherus with the province Bemarin and the Flora and Fauna of the island - Vita of the artist: Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684 - 1743) was a Huguenot pastor of Parisian origins. He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

SANTO TOMAS, Alonso de, Bishop of Malaga (a.k.a. Alonso Enríquez de Guzmán y de Orozco).
Lisbon, En la Emprenta de Miguel Manescal, Librero de la Serenissima Casa de Bargança [sic], y de S. Ilustrissima, 1684. - 4°, disbound, text block edges sprinkled red. Woodcut on title page repeated on p. 31 of a bowl with flowers, fruits and vegetables. Large, elegant woodcut initial on p. 3. Extensive side notes, consisting of Latin versions of quotations in the text. In good to very good condition. 31 pp. *** One of several editions that appeared in 1683 (?)-1684; in addition to this one, we know of an undated edition without imprint (25 pp.) as well as Madrid, 1684 and Valencia, 1684 editions. The Bishop of Malaga exhorts his flock to celebrate the victory of Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I over the Turks on September 12, 1683, at the Battle of Vienna. Vienna had been besieged by the Ottoman Empire for more than 2 months. This victory, won by the Empire in league with Poland, is often seen as the turning point after which the Turks ceased to be a menace to the Christian world. Fray Alonso gives some details on the battle, and discusses the alliances that made the victory possible.Fray Alonso Enríquez de Guzmán y de Orozco (Málaga, 1631-Málaga, 1692) was officially the son of a Spanish nobleman, but was in fact the son of Philip IV, who had been having an affair with Alonso's mother, one of the queen's women in waiting. In 1646, when Philip's heir Baltasar Carlos died, Philip attempted to legitimize Alonso. Alonso refused and took orders as a Dominican in 1648, adopting the name Fray Alonso de Santo Thomás. Respected as a theologian, philosopher, and orator, he was named b … [Click Below for Full Description]

MORE, Sir Thomas
London: for Richard Chiswell,, 1684. Octavo. Contemporary sprinkled sheep, unlettered. First edition of Gilbert Burnet's translation of More's Utopia. Utopia tells of the best order of society, the ideal commonwealth, which is to be found on the island of Utopia. Its protagonist is the Portuguese traveller Raphael Hythlodaye, who relates that he accompanied Amerigo Vespucci on three of his four journeys to the New World, including one on which he remained behind in order to explore further. Hythlodaye (whose name means "one who is cunning in nonsense") then relates his experiences of the distant island (Utopia means "nowhere land"; More and Erasmus also referred to it merely as Nusquam, or "nowhere"), where all property is held in common ownership, where six hours a day are devoted to work and the rest to recreation, where gold and silver are used not as currency but as the material for making shackles and chamber pots, and slaves (criminals and prisoners of war) are treated fairly. The island bears a remarkable resemblance to England, providing a source of satire on contemporary life and government.

Burnet Thomas
1684. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Good Condition. Full contemporary paneled calf, rebacked in cloth with the original spine laid back down, 3 volumes bound in 1. Endpapers lightly soiled - very clean generally but with pervasive worming in the gutter occasionally just touching the text in the inner margin. Published 1684, 1690 and 1690. [20], 327, [1] pp with frontis, 1 full page plate and 2 double page maps (one showing California as an island); ]14], 224 pp. (lacking the extra engraved title); [2], 52 pp. (bound without the final ad leaf). The first English edition of both parts of Burnet's popular and influential work of speculative cosmogony, first published in 1681 and 1689. On viewing the "confusion" of the Alps, Burnet became convinced that, though God created everything, he wasn't directly responsible for the more confounding elements, coming to believe that the water from the flood was from a hollow space in the earth and the flood created mountains and other features.

Sammelband mit 8 Abhandlungen und Dokumenten zur Lage in Württemberg kurz nach dem Tode von Herzog Carl Alexander (1684-1737). Zusammen 864 Seiten. 33 x 21 cm, Halbpergament der Zeit. Als frühestes Dokument enthält die Sammlung den Bericht der Begräbnisfeierlichkeiten für Carl Alexander, der unerwartet am 12. März 1737 nach kurzer Regierungszeit gestorben war.

Da Carl Alexander während seiner Herrschaft Beamtentum und Landstände, die mehrheitlich protestantische Elite Württembergs gegen sich aufgebracht hatte, kam es sofort nach seinem Tod zu Gegenreaktionen, darunter die Verhaftung seines jüdischen Finanzberaters Joseph Süß Oppenheimer (abfällig "Jud Süss" genannt), der 1738 hingerichtet wurde die Verhaftung des Generals der württembergischen Armee Franz Joseph von Remchingen, dessen Prozess in einer Abhandlung von 1743 ausfühlich dargestellt ist. - Der Sammelband enthält im Einzelnen: 1.

An seinen Onkel, Graf Giacomo Negroboni in Brescia, hauptsächlich in Familiensachen sowie zu Graf Starhembergs Konflikt mit Ludwig XIV.: "[...] Qui non ci manca, che lavorare per porci in postura di una bona diffesa; noi siamo gia' quattro in cinque milla fanti di Guarnizione, dove, se il Re di Francia vorra tentare qualche cosa a qualche piaza, trovera' duro [...]". - Der einem alten Brescianer Adelshaus entstammende Chizzola war Kommandant im kaiserlichen Heer; er zeichnete sich bei der Belagerung Philippsburgs 1676 aus und wurde 1689 beim Sturm auf Mainz verwundet. Im selben Jahr wurde er zum Obristen befördert und folgte Max Laurenz von Starhemberg als Kommandant des 8. Linien-Infanterieregiments nach.

ORBIGNY, Alcide d'.
DSB X, pp. 221-222; Ward 1684; D.A. Young, Geological evidence for the age of the earth, p. 109. Complete first edition, including the often lacking tables, of a standard work on stratigraphy and paleontology by the famous Alcide d'Orbigny (1801-1857), "perhaps the most accomplished French paleontologist of the generation following Cuvier" (Young). In this work "he subdivided the Cretaceous System into 'stages', based on the notion that a typical fauna would be annihilated and replaced by a new fauna" (Young). He based his new classification of fossils on his research on geological strata, establishing the vital link between paleontology and stratigraphic geology that has proved so fruitful for both disciplines. Many contemporary geologists opposed his stratigraphic ideas, but despite this controversy he was appointed professor of paleontology at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris in 1853. The work contains numerous woodengraved illustrations by E. Salle, which show an enormous variety of plant and animal fossils, from tiny invertebrates to gigantic dinosaurs.In very good condition, with only some faint foxing on the first and last few pages. Bindings of the text volumes slightly rubbed along the extremities and worn along the corners; paper wrappers of the tables slightly soiled, but still in good condition.

Tagli rossi a spruzzo, frontespizio con titolo impresso in rosso e in nero e vignetta. In calce all'explicit tipografico, antica annotazione in parte cassata: "ex libris Ludovicy Cini ex dono Authoris"; non è chiaro se la nota sia di mano del Redi stesso o, com'è più probabile, del medesimo Ludovico Cini (della famiglia patrizia fiorentina che larga rinomanza ebbe soprattutto nei secoli XVI e XVII).

(Oxford. University.)
Printed on linen, engraved surface 525 x 450 to platemark, a few brown spots, mostly in the margins, 625 x 570mm to edge of mount, with approx. 10mm folded over, framed and glazed The first Oxford Almanack appeared in 1673. There was none in 1675, making this the eleventh in a series which has otherwise been published annually for well over 300 years. They were from the beginning produced in largish numbers, though those printed 'upon Cloath' were necessarily fewer. Whether on paper or cloth (early on issued as silk handkerchiefs), their ephemeral nature has entailed a low survival rate, and an example as early as this, is rare indeed. Dr. Fell took an interest in these productions, and this was the penultimate one in which he was involved. 'On the left, on a plinth, a figure in classical armour, trampling on his enemies, is crowned by Victory. On the right is a group of figures, including a seated woman with a book and another writing the eclipses for the year on a scroll. Neptune stands in his chariot behind. In the distance is a view of Oxford [from Loggan, Oxonia illustrata, 1675, with Tom Tower added]. Oxford was at this time strongly Tory, High Church, and monarchist, and the portrayal of the triumph of Charles II over his enemies may reflect the University's enthusiastic loyalty to the Crown following the Rye House Plot in 1683 ... The group on the plinth is from the engraving by Villamena after Goelius of the statue of Moschino ... with the head changed to a portrait of Charles II' (Peter, The Oxford Almanacks, p. 34). The head is somewhat awkwardly placed.
