Visscher, Claus Janzoon (1587-1642) and Visscher, Nicolaes (1618-1679)
Amsterdam, 1684. THE FIRST PRINTED MAP TO DELINEATE THE SHAPE OF MANHATTAN AND THE EARLIEST PRINTED MAPS TO SHOW PHILADELPHIA Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 21" x 25" References (to various states and editions): I. N. Phelps Stokes & D. C. Haskell, American Historical Prints Early Views of American Cities, Etc. (New York, 1932), 11, 231; Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 250; I. N. Phelps Stokes, The Iconography of Manhattan Island (New York, 1967), vol. 1, 119-132, 147-148, 150-152 and pl. 8; G. G. Deak, Picturing America, 1497-1899 (Princeton, 1988), nos. 38, 42. The beautiful map, first published by Claus Janszoon Visscher in the mid-1650s, was a seminal moment in the cartography of New England and New York. With its inset view of New York -- the printed version of the second earliest known view of the city -- it showed Europeans for the first time what New Amsterdam looked like and also provided them with a remarkably precise idea of its geographic context. The map gained such a degree of popularity that Visscher published it for more than twenty years (1655-1677), and a number of his competitors as well as later cartographers continued to produce their own versions of the map as late as the mid-eighteenth century. One reason for the map's long publication life was simply its high quality and accuracy. It is the first printed map to delineate the shape of Manhattan correctly and it represented the summation of all the surveys of New Netherlands conducted by Dutch colonists since their arrival.

Pettit, Edward
London:1684: Printed by B.W. for Edward Vize, at the Sign of the Bishop's Head over against the Royal Exchange in Cornhill. Printed: 1684. fl. ca. 1684 Octavo, 7.2 x 4.32 inches. First edition. A-Q8, R4. An engraved allegorical frontispiece of Charles I slaying the three headed Commonwealth beast is bound opposite the title. This copy is bound in full contemporary speckled English calf, rebacked, with a new label on the spine. Inside the front board is the bookplate of the Woburn Public Library. The pages are clean with wide margins. This edition is bound in its original dark calfskin blind tooled around the borders of the front and back covers. There is an ancient red tooled label in gold affixed to the spine. This is a wild tale, and even a brief quote from the material will reveal the nature of its content... "'You are a railing, prating boy (reply'd he [a politician]) who values your Judgment that have nothing of solid Learning, or substantial Politicks in you? You are a paltry quibbling insignificant Black Coat.' Before I could answer him, Hobbs took courage, and fell in with him pellmell, calling me Pedantical Academick. His University-Learning (said he) has quite spoil'd him, and for want of my reasonings and conclusions, he is no better than a dull pragmatical Ideot. But yonder is a grave serious and Ancient learned man, I will be judg'd by him. Ay! and so will I too (replyed Nevil), For He is one of our Friends, an Holy man, and a good Commonwealths-man, a great Enemy to Tyranny; Ay, to Popery too (said Hobbs)."

Rome: Presso M. Angelo de Rossi, 1684. Second Edition. Hardcover. One of the Earliest Books on Birds, With Extremely Charming Engravings. 286 x 229 mm (11 1/4 x 9"). 5 p.l., 77, [1] pp., [6] leaves (index). Second Edition. Probably 18th century vellum, morocco spine label. Engraved title page with elaborate frame featuring two bird catchers, historiated headpiece, woodcut initials, two vignette tailpieces, and 66 CHARMING PLATES by Tempesta and Villamena (located on the verso of most text pages, with corresponding explication opposite). Schwerdt II, 48-49; Nissen IVB 693; Anker 380; Zimmer II, 475; Wood, p. 499 (mostly citing both ours and the first edition of 1622). Vellum somewhat grubby, a chip out of spine label affecting two letters, very faint browning to a few leaves, isolated trivial soiling, other insignificant imperfections, but an excellent copy, the binding solid, and especially fresh and clean internally. This is the second edition--characterized as "superior to the first" by Schwerdt--of a charming early book on birds, their habits, the methods of catching them, the ways to maintain them in captivity, and their diseases. Anker mentions its first printing (in 1622) as being "one of the earliest works with engraved plates representing birds," and Schwerdt says that the work is "delightful chiefly owing to Tempesta's spirited illustrations of the methods employed by fowlers in the beginning of the 17th century." The plates in our edition are the same as in the first, though four of the illustrations have been re-engraved. The majority of the illustrations fea … [Click Below for Full Description]

DU VAL, Pierre (1618-1683)
Paris 1684 - Engraved with period outline colour. Good condition, expertly repaired split at centerfold and parallel tear from the base. Mild toning due to age. Small crease lower left. Pierre Duval was Nicholas Sanson's nephew, and his work was primarily editing and augmenting Sanson's innovative cartography. He and Hubert Jaillot were most important in bringing Sanson's work to the world, both in improved editions and in bringing to print previously unpublished manuscripts. This map of Asia bears the characteristic clarity and more "scientific" air of the 17th-century French map. Though many sites are mis-located, a vast amount of material has been examined and assessed. Most placenames represent geographical entities that currently exist or once existed. The rendition of the lower islands of Japan and the peninsula of Korea are improved over earlier studies. Details of the Great Wall of China are also visible. This map, dated 1684, was issued by Pierre's daughter, "Mlle." Duval, the year after his death. Pastoureau, Duval II E, (9).

London-T. Basset, J. Wright, and R. Chiswell, 1684 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce edition of Adam Littleton's uncommon Linguae Latinae Liber Dictionarius. Needing some remedial work to the binding but with the orginal boards and spine. A good copy would be around 750, priced to allow for the work to the binding. The Four Parts are I. An English-Latine, II. A Latine-Classical, III. A Latine-Proper, and IV. A Latine-Barbarous. Adam Littleton, 1627 1694, was a Church of England clergyman, and philologist. He was educated at Westminster School and Christ Church, Oxford. After education, Littleton became usher at Westminster School, where he was later appointed second master. During this time Littleton published many texts on Greek and Latin grammar. During the 1660s, Littleton was appointed a chaplain in ordinary to Charles II.

London: A. Mearn et al., 1684. Used - Very Good. A4, a-c4, B-Z4, Aa-Zz4, Aaa-Hhh4, Aaaa-Zzzz4, Aaaaa-Zzzzz4, Aaaaaa-Ffffff4, A-Z2, Aa2, *5, Nnnnnn-Zzzzzz4, 7A-7R4, *1-*92. Lacks portrait frontispiece. Bound in recent three-quarter crimson leather, over cloth boards. Generally somewhat browned and edgeworn internally, with some insect damage in the bottom margin, but still quite clear and legible. There is a break in the pagination at p. 424 (Hhh4); numbering skips to p. 451 (Aaaa). Another copy in our hands has identical pagination, and the text is continuous, so this is clearly a printer's error in page numbering. Overall, a very sound copy, lacking frontispice and with the defective page numbering noted above. (Subject: Medieval, Early Printed Books & Cartography.)

London: Benj. Tooke, 1684. Book. Very Good-. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Book measures 12 1/4 x 8". Collation is folio. The item is designated in the notes that accompanied it, and compares accurately with Wing A3754. The prior owners notes (Wings are penciled in the margin of the title page) reference "McAlpin 30.1 x 19.2 cm, (1) 67p. portr. frontisp, appointment of printer on flyleaf." As is our custom the grade may be thought of as a compromise between the newish hardcovers and the understandably aged text, hopefully the listed attributes will answer for specifics.This is a large format pamphlet placed in hardcovers, and has no frontispiece, the original text commences with the title page followed by the 1st page of text, collation code 'B'. Text concludes at page 67, final collition on page 65 code 'S'. It is preceded and followed by tan replacement endsheets. The text, with predictable waviness and minor foxing is mildly age darkened at what look to be its natural, uncut (post assembly) edges. Title page has postage stamp size section missing at lower corner, text has the odd mild stain and corrected dog ear, all fairly mild. Title page also has edge flecking/edge darkening, and more mildly so, the sheet following.There is much variation in the finished size of the leaves (perhaps 1/16th inch) and surely as made. The spine label is done in gilt on black and spine has trace of sunfade especially at top. Board are dark blue cloth. It is now stored air tight under low light. Foto of the book will follow shortly..
