      Stamperia del Lazzari Varese 1685 Folio (cm. 38,9), 84 (di 91) cc.nn. Grandi capilettera ornati, fregi e finali incisi su legno. Il libro ha sessantaquattro incisioni a metà pagina, una a piena pagina e tre (di quattro) a doppia pagina (territorio di Pisa, veduta di piazza del Popolo e veduta di piazza S. Pietro). Le incisioni sono di B. di Ballin, Io. Collin, G.B. Falda, Gaspar van Wittel. Legatura in pergamena dâ??agnello con nervi e titolo su tassello con fregi oro al ds. Tagli rossi (Bella legatura ottocentesca). Esemplare in ottime condizioni generali (solo qualche antica annotazione e qualche piccola macchia), ma imperfetto. In particolare sono assenti: un frontespizio (è presente solo quello con il titolo e una grande incisione); una carta della Dedica; la pianta dello stagno di Maccarese (due carte); la pianta delle paludi pontine (tre carte); due altre carte (le figure III e IV della Parte terza) sostituite da due carte anchâ??esse con incisioni, ma provenienti da altra opera del Meyer. Pur con queste non secondarie mancanze, il volume, realizzato graficamente in maniera assai affascinante, costituisce unâ??importante documentazione della teorie idrauliche e di alcuni rilevanti interventi realizzati a Roma dallâ??ingegnere olandese durante il pontificato di Innocenzo XI. Ma nel libro, oltre a ciò, vi sono altri aspetti di grande interesse che riguardano una serie di materie (riconducibili tutte a proposte di â??abbellimentiâ??) â??che possono essere a vantaggio così al pubblico come a particolariâ??: innalzare fontane, allineare le acque, alzare da terra la Colonna Trajana e lâ??obelisco di Campo Marzio, e ancora abbellire - con riferimento alle guglie - piazza del Popolo (per questa câ??è una veduta del Falda che ci presenta la piazza prima dellâ??intervento del Valadier), S.

Wellcome II,165. Erste Ausgabe. Govard (auch Govert) Bidloo (1649 Amsterdam - 1713 Leiden), niederländischer Arzt und Anatom, war u. a. Schüler von Fred Ruysch und promovierte 1682, nach Aufenhalten in Frankreich, in Deutschland. In jungen Jahren trat er als Librettist zur ersten Oper in niederländischer Sprache in Erscheinung. Nach Amsterdam zurückgekehrt widmete er sich hauptsächlich anatomischen Studien und hatte sich bereits vor seiner Promotion mit der Herausgabe eines vollständigen Handbuches der Anatomie befaßt, welches dann auch 1685 tatsächlich erschien. Das Werk gehört zweifellos zu den künstlerisch wertvollsten anatomischen Werken über das bei Garrison-M. zu lesen ist: "The value lies chiefly in the 105 fine copperplate engravings drawn by G.de Lairesse". Choulant rühmt den "durchaus sehr eleganten und vorzüglich ausgeführten Stich der Tafeln ." Goldschmid, 49 bemerkt ergänzend: "Für uns kommt der hohe Stand der anatomischen Abbildungen in Betracht . ". Auf Wikipedia (Abfrage 17.4.2016) ist dazu zu lesen: „Revolutionär waren aber vor allem die 105 Bildtafeln, die anatomische Strukturen in bisher unerreichtem Maß detailgetreu und realistisch wiedergaben, hervorragend gezeichnet von Gerard de Lairesse und in Kupferstiche übertragen von Abraham Blooteling". Von 1694 an lehrte er Anatomie und Medizin in Leiden. Ab 1695 war er zugleich der Leibarzt von William III. von Oranien-Nassau. Gutes und meist sehr sauberes Exemplar. Eine der beiden doppelblattgroßen Falttafeln (10) hier nicht zusammengesetzt, sondern in zwei Blättern eingebunden. Der ausführliche Schenkungsvermerk ist datiert Chemnitz Januar 1919. Demnach hat ein Prof. Weber das Buch vom Vater des 1918 verstorbenen Kollegen Fritz Fränkel als Geschenk erhalten. Bidloo's anatomical reputation stands on his massive folio work, the Anatomia humani corporis, more on account of the innovative plates than for the text. The artist was Gerard de Lairesse (1640-1711) whose one hundred and five drawings represent the human figure both in living attitudes and as dissected cadavers. Wohl neu aufgebunden, Pergament dupliert. Titelblatt mit ergänztem Papierabriß unten links, Seitenränder fleckig, sachgerecht hinterlegt. Die beiden fehlenden Tafeln faksimiliert. Eine Tafel mit Rostspur (14), drei Tafeln mit Papierrestaurierungen (57, 62, 63), die letzte mit großem (rest.) Einriss. Eine Tafel (88) und drei Textblätter (88, 93, 98) mit handschriftlichen Anmerkungen. Handschriftliche Besitzeinträge, gestochenes Wappen-Exlibris.

        È DEDICATA A CHI SI STIMA SAVIO. "QUASI TUTTI LI DAN, CHI PIÙ CHI MENO".

      Opera firmata e datata in lastra, 1685 (esecuzione), secoli XVII-XVIII (impressione)Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, impressa su carta vergata; entro la parte figurata, in alto al centro titolo, nonché, più in basso, motto entro cartiglio; all'angolo inferiore destro, firma dell'autore in qualità di inventore e incisore entro cartiglio, con a destra data 1685. L'opera, di ampie proporzioni, ricca di figure e di pregevole fattura, spetta, sia per la parte ideativa che per l'esecuzione, a un prolifico incisore bolognese, particolarmente apprezzato per le immagini con costumi popolari e per quelle di carattere satirico, moraleggiante e allegorico. L'immagine, dagli accenti umoristici, rappresenta uomini e donne d'ogni stato sociale, a piedi e a cavallo, in un paesaggio con fondale marino. I personaggi accorrono con pertiche, rami e bastoni, cercando di colpire il simulacro di un crescente di luna, appeso a un tronco d'albero. Fuori di metafora, l'autore suggerisce che tutti gli uomini, anche quelli che si stimano più saggi, hanno talora atteggiamenti lunatici. Varie figure sono accompagnate da oggetti dal significato allegorico: ad esempio, in basso a destra si notano una donna con una maschera, probabile simulatrice, un'altra donna con un uccello in gabbia, forse una adescatrice; presso la firma dell'autore, inoltre vi è una tavolozza con i pennelli. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, dalla contenuta uniforma brunitura; margini destro e a sinistro assai sottili, rinforzati con strisce di carta d'epoca posteriore; margini buoni in alto e in basso; traccia di piegatura verticale al centro; alcuni minimi forellini e assottigliamenti della carta visibili in trasparenza.             Acquaforte, 1685, firmata e datata in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su cata vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, tracce di piega centrale, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Figlio del celebre pittore Agostino Mitelli fu a sua volta pittore, ma soprattutto fu uno dei più prolifici incisori del Seicento. Riprodusse a olio capolavori dei Carracci, del Guercino e di altri insigni pittori bolognesi. Realizzò allâ??acquaforte una straordinaria quantità di soggetti di ogni genere: scene di vita quotidiana, allegorie sacre e profane, satire politiche, proverbi, giochi di società. Le sue incisioni erano spesso accompagnate da brevi commenti o da poesie in dialetto bolognese.

        The doctrine of the law & grace unfolded: or, a discourse touching the law and grace. The Nature of the one, and the Nature of the other: Shewing what they are, as they are the Two Covenants; and likewise who they be, and what their Conditions are, that be under either of these Two Covenants. Wherein, For the better Understanding of the Reader, there is several Questions answered touching the Law and Grace, very easie to be read, and as easie to be understood, by those that are the Sons of Wisdom, the Children of the Second Covenant. Also, Several Titles set over the several Truths contained in this Book, for thy sooner finding of them; which are those at the latter end.

      A religious essay from the author of Pilgrim's Progress, here in the "second edition, corrected and amended," which is actually a newer version of the second edition printed in 1685. Bunyan gives lengthy discussion to the differences between the covenant of works and the covenant of grace, and as with all of the early editions of his works, this one is scarce. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and ESTC locate only three copies worldwide of the 1659 first edition, three copies in North America of the 1685 second, and three North American copies of this 1701 edition (this being one of the three). This work lacks the portrait and one leaf of text, a common occurrence as Bunyan's works were often read to death. Provenance: Booklabel of Farrer in Reading on front pastedown. Later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released); with presentation inscription of C. Bernard Cockett (1888-1965), president of both the Australian Council of Churches and the Congregational Union of Australia & New Zealand, to the Pacific School of Religion on 7 May 1943 in appreciation for receiving an honorary doctorate.

        Préjugez légitimes contre le papisme. Ouvrage ou l'on considère l'Église Romaine dans tous ses dehors & ou l'on fait voir pour l'Histoire de sa conduite qu'elle ne peut être la Véritable Eglise.

      Amsterdam, Henry Desbordes, 1685. - 2 parties en un volume pt. in-4°, [32]-445-[5]-372-[4]p. Première édition parue sans nom d'auteur. Un des nombreux ouvrages polémiques de Jurieu (1637-1713) contre Nicole, qui avait cru bon d'écrire un ouvrage expliquant qu'il n'y avait pas de grosses différences entre la doctrine Romaine et Réformée pour que les huguenots retournent dans le giron de l'Eglise. Ce qui ne fût pas au goût de Jurieu qui répondit par un ouvrage intitulé " Préservatifs contre le changement de Religion ". Nicole voulant s'attirer les faveurs de Rome en se démarquant du Calvinisme, critiqua cette réponse de Jurieu à l'Evêque de Meaux. Ce livre est donc la réponse de Jurieu à Nicole, le style est mordant, ironique. Il est question des critiques classiques des calvinistes contre l'Eglise Romaine : l'idolâtrie, l'eucharistie? Bel exemplaire. Reliure plein veau caillouté d'époque, dosà nerfs orné de fleurons dorés, tranches rouges.

"Bidloo, professor of anatomy at The Hague, was at one time physician to William of Orange. An English contemporary, William Cowper, furnished his Anatomy of humane bodies almost completely with engravings plagiarized from this book by Bidloo, who promptly and publicly excoriated Cowper in a published communication to the Royal Society. Before the days of copyright, this is one of the most famous instances of plagiarism in the history of medicine.These plates are considered among the finest illustrations of the Baroque period,." (Heirs of Hippocrates 667). "The value of Bidloo's 'Anatomia' lies chiefly in the 105 fine copperplate engravings drawn by Gerard de Lairesse, and engraved by Pieter van Gunst. These are masterpieces of Dutch baroque art" (Garrison-M). "One of the finest anatomical atlases of the Baroque period. The 105 plates were drawn by the painter Gerard de Lairesse, under whose influence the French style of Poussin and Lorraine became dominant in Holland. For Lairesse, the anatomical illustrations Bidloo asked him to undertake were an occasion for an artistic meditation on anatomy: he displayed his figures in an emotional, almost tender manner, contrasting the raw dissected parts with the full, soft surfaces of uncut flesh, placing flayed, bound figures in ordinary nightclothes or bedding, setting ordinary household objects such as books, jars or cabinets in the same scene as cut-up torsos or limbs, and in one plate showing a fly crawling on an opened abdomen. His illustrations brought the quality of Dutch still-life painting into anatomical illustration, and gave a new, darker spritual expression to the significance of the act of dissection. According to the most recent scholarship, the plates were probably engraved by Abraham Bloteling, inventor of the rocker tool for mezzoprint engraving." (Norman 231) "The book took six years to make, and it was not a best seller, even by 17th-century standards. The publisher probably sold the plates to try to recoup some of his losses. But today, the 100 copies still in existence are the prized treasures of the world's great academic libraries, among them Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale and Vassar" (Vassar College Libraries). *Wilhelm Gottlieb Tilesius von Tilenau (1769-1857) was a German naturalist, explorer, physician, draftsman and engraver.

        The Lady Isabella

      London: Sold by Alex Browne at ye blew balcony in little Queen Street, 1685. Mezzotint. Counterproof impression printed in reverse. Printed on watermarked laid paper. Closely trimmed outside platemark as usual. A nice impression in excellent condition. Image size: 12 7/16 x 9 ¾ inches. An extremely rare counterproof by Alexander Browne, the father of English mezzotint engraving. During the eighteenth century, England became the heart of the mezzotint trade, producing some of the most celebrated engravers and the most beautiful prints that the medium has ever witnessed. Invented in Germany in 1642, mezzotint engraving quickly became popular throughout Europe as a method of reproducing oil paintings. It was eagerly adopted by English printmakers, who instituted so many technological improvements that the method became known as "the English manner". English mezzotints were eagerly collected by European connoisseurs; and continental engravers traveled to England to study the technique. One of the earliest and most important English mezzotint engravers is the printseller Alexander Browne. Although it is unclear whether Browne was the engraver of his prints or simply the publisher, his series of portraits are some the earliest and most accomplished mezzotints produced in England during the seventeenth century. According to Walpole, in 1683 Browne obtained a patent for fourteen years to publish one hundred mezzotints after portraits by Van Dyck and Lely. He seems only to have published them until the death of Charles II, in February of 1685, after which there is no record of his movements. Regarded as the father of the English mezzotint, Browne's important portraits introduced the art of mezzotint into England. This rare print is a portrait of Lady Isabella (1676-1680), the daughter of James, the Duke of York, and Mary of Modena, after a painting by Lely. It is a counterproof, or reverse print, and therefore extremely rare. The practice of reverse printing was rarely used in England, and Browne was one of the few engravers to employ this method of printing. Counterproof, or reverse printing was achieved by taking a second impression from a newly printed image. This process resulted in a slightly lighter impression and reversed text. According to Chaloner Smith, Browne was in the habit of making a few counterproofs of each print which were typically not sold to the public. A true collector's piece this remarkable image is an extremely rare impression by one of the most important English mezzotint engravers. Chaloner Smith, British Mezzotinto Portraits , p. 105-107, no. 15, counterproof state not described.

      - Stockholm, Joh. Georg. Eberdt, (1685-86). Tvär folio. (4),+ 13 s.+ grav. titelblad,+ 62 grav. planscher, varav 3 utvikbara. Titelbladet uppfodrat på baksidan. Detta liksom nästföljande tre blad, det graverade titelbladet och ett flertal planscher med lagade smårevor. Plansch nummer 54 med stänk, vilket även slagit igenom på nummer 53 och 55, i övrigt enstaka fläckar. Två planscher (nummer 58-59) med veck. De tre utvikbara planscherna helt uppfodrade, den sista med lagad nedre marginal. Sammanbunden med tre extra planscher: Ryttarporträtt av Karl XI, graverad av Jacob Sandrart efter målning av Ehrenstrahl. Nürnberg, (1674). Folio. (455 x 400 mm.) Delvis skuren invid ram, med lätt ramförlust i övre hörn. Vikt. Uppfodrad i innerkant och med lagad reva. Samt: Ryttarporträtt av Karl X Gustav, graverad av Jacob Sandrart efter målning av Ehrenstrahl. (Nürnberg), utan år. Folio. (460 x 400 mm.) Vikt. Delvis skuren invid ram, med lätt ramförlust i övre hörnet. Uppfodrad i kanter och veck, och med lagad reva. Samt: Sjöslagsuppvisningen i Mälaren 28 juni 1673. ?Typus pugnae navalis Iudicrae reg. majestatis Sueciae in faucibus lacum Meleri prope Holmiam institutam?, graverad av G. C. Eimmart efter målning av Ehrenstrahl. Nürnberg, (1673). Tvär folio, sammansatt av två blad. (275x720 mm.) Helt uppfodrad och med lagade revor, liten textförlust i nedre högra hörnet. Ljusbrunt skinnryggsband från början av 1800-talet, med marmorerade pärmpapper och pergamenthörn, stänksnitt. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Saknar den tyska texten. Nordin 2005. Collijn sp. 221f. Lindberg, Swedish Books, 30. Klemming, Ur en antecknares samlingar, s. 75. Warmholtz 8000. Första upplagan av David Klöcker Ehrenstrahls avbildningar av de stora festligheter och turneringar som föranleddes av Karl XI tillträde till tronen den 18 december 1672. Ett av den svenska barockens mest praktfulla bokverk. Planscherna är graverade i Nürnberg och Hamburg av Georg Christoph Eimmart efter Ehrenstrahls teckningar. Eimmart har även graverat extraplanchen ?Typus pugnae navalis? (även den efter Ehrenstrahl). Denna är ofta bifogad verket och föreställer ett låtsassjöslag mellan kungliga och adliga jakter på Riddarfjärden. Planscherna är troligen graverade före december 1685, frontespisen dock troligen först år 1686. Eberdt i Stockholm har endast tryckt texten till verket och det troligen senare än planscherna. Denna text trycktes på både latin och tyska, med vardera 17 sidor, här återfinns dock endast den latinska. Texten är med stor sannolikhet författad av Samuel Agriconius Åkerhielm (Nordin s. 51.) Samma år som karusellen ägde rum tryckte Wankijff separat en svensk text av Erik Lindschöld: ?Le carrosel eller dhen prächtige ringränning?, i folio. Den stora karusellen, eller ringränningen, och den stora processionen från slottet längs Drottninggatan och Mäster Samuelsgatan fram till rännarbanan vid Hötorget, som ägde rum dagen efter trontillträdet, var huvudnumret vid festligheterna och upptar 55 av de 62 planscherna. Karusellens deltagare var uppdelade i fyra lag, eller kadriljer; göter, polacker, turkar och ?moderna? och deltog i kostbara och rikt utsirade dräkter. David Klöcker (1628-98), adlad Ehrenstrahl 1674, var från Hamburg och kom i svensk tjänst 1659 under Karl X Gustav, Han utnämndes till svensk hovkonterfejare 1661 och blev den ledande konstnären i Sverige under andra halvan av 1600-talet, berömd för sina porträtt och dekormålningar. Georg Christoph Eimmart (1638-1705) i Nürnberg, var svåger till Jacob von Sandrart, och blev 1672 utnämnd till svensk hovgravör på Ehrenstrahls begäran. Han kom aldrig att flytta till Stockholm, men samarbetet dem emellan resulterade både i detta verk, sjöslaget ?Typus pugnae navalis? och illustrationerna till Disasagan. Jacob von Sandrart (1630-1708) var gravör och förläggare, och brorson till Joachim von Sandrart, som arbetat för både hertig Karl Gustav och Carl Gustaf Wrangel. Jacob gjorde för svenskt vidkommande

        De l'unité de l'Eglise, ou réfutation du système de M. Jurieu

      Edition originaleL'exemplaire est enrichi d'un envoi autographe de Pierre Nicole à M. Angran. Il présente en outre deux ajouts manuscrits (p 48 et 329), très probablement de la main de L'auteur.binding de l'époque en pleine basane mouchetée. spine à cinq nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés. Roulettes dorées sur les coupes et les spine-ends. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Deux petits trous de vers sur le spine, quelques autres sur les plats. Mors frottés et un peu fendus.Préalablement à la Révocation de l'édit de Nantes en 1685, la plupart des écrivains théologiens polémistes s'occupèrent de ruiner l'église protestante par de nombreuses oeuvres sur les points de doctrine qui séparaient l'église catholique et protestante. Les écrivains de Port-Royal, Arnault et Nicole essentiellement, se firent les héraults de l'église romaine, et on assista ainsi à des joutes théologiques avec des auteurs protestants qui se prolongèrent sur des années, notamment Pierre Jurieu. De l'unité de l'église se présente ainsi comme une réponse à l'ouvrage de Jurieu paru en 1686, Le vrai système de l'église, mais celui-ci était déjà une attaque et une critique d'un ouvrage de Pierre Nicole : Les prétendus réfomés convaincus de schisme. Chacun de ces livres, et il y en eut de nombreux, suit les mêmes procédés : une analyse systématique et paraphrastique de chaque chapitre du livre abhorré, chaque phrase etant décortiquée et retournée contre l'adversaire, les polémistes étant à l'affut de la moindre contradiction, de la moindre imprécision. Les thèses de chaque ouvrage se font donc par le défaut de ceux qu'ils critiquent, ainsi Jurieu dans Le vrai système de l'église induit du livre de Nicole que l'église romaine devrait être universelle en tant qu'église du Christ, mais constatant qu'elle ne l'est assurément pas, elle conduit nécessairement par son pouvoir arbitraire à la position schismatique des protestants. Chacun des ouvrages poursuit le même but, décrier l'adversaire, rendre à néant ses prétentions pour l'injurier alors en connaissance de cause, et ainsi par rebond détruire la cause religieuse qu'il défend. Pierre Nicole asseoit une nouvelle fois dans son nouveau livre, en assurant une critique continue de l'ouvrage précédent de Jurieu, qu'il ne peut y avoir qu'une église, et que seule l'église catholique est bien l'église de tous, ce qu'il prouve en citant à l'envi les pères de l'église.Au regard de l'histoire, il peut paraître ironique que les champions de la doctrine catholique furent issus de Port-Royal au XVIIe siècle, alors que l'ensemble des religieux furent chassés de l'abbaye dès 1709, et le lieu rasé en 1712... Les envois autographes du XVIIème siècle sont, de nos jours, devenus très rares.  Chez Guillaume Desprez et Elie Josset àParis 1687 in-12 (9x16cm) (16) 484pp. (2) relié

        Veuë de la Ville de Gray en Franche Comte, Prospectus Greyaci, in Burgundiae Comitatu

      Paris: distribuë par l'Auteur, en l'Hostel des Manufactures des Gobelins, et en la rue St.Jacques, 1685. Copper engraving, on two joined sheets, after Van der Meulen. Titled in French and Latin. In excellent condition. Some infill work along the bottom margin. Image size: 18 1/2 x 38 5/8 inches. A striking contemporary view of Gray in Franche-Comte, by the celebrated court painter Van der Meulen. This fine view shows the town of Gray in Franche-Comte, built on the banks of the Saône River. One of the most important trading towns in Franche-Comte, the region became a possession of the Spanish Hapsburgs in 1556. Although some of the region's fortified towns were occupied by France during the Wars of Religion, peace and prosperity continued until the advent of the Thirty Years War, when the region was ravaged by both Catholics and Protestants. Louis XIV conquered Franche-Comté in 1668 and again in 1674 and finally obtained its cession from Spain. Van der Meulen's striking image depicts the king and his armies entering the town after they successfully re-conquered the region. Adam Frans Van der Meulen was a landscape and genre painter, who specialized in battle scenes, and his early works, i.e. those from the years before he left for Paris (the earliest dated work is from 1653) are mainly cavalry skirmishes in the manner of his teacher Pieter Snayer. After he moved to Paris, the character of his work changed and became more ceremonial. He now specialized in large topographical views and military scenes and in royal journeys, processions and receptions. His most important task was to accompany the king on his many campaigns during the wars of conquest waged in the 1660s and 1670s against, inter alia the Spanish Netherlands, and as Peintre de conquêtes du roi officially to portray the memorable sieges, battles and conquests of le Roi Soleil in large-scale canvases or cartoons which were later transformed into tapestries. Van der Meulen was born in Brussels, where he was baptized in 1632. In 1646 he was apprenticed to the battle painter Pieter Snayers. In 1651 he became a master in the Guild of St. Luke in Brussels but by 1663 he had moved to Paris where he joined a group of Netherlandish artists associated with the French painter Charles Le Brun (1619-90), who not only was Premier peintre du roi, but also (from 1663) director of the Parisian tapestry manufactory Manufacture royale des Gobelins. Van der Meulen quickly became a protégé of Le Brun, and on his recommendation Van der Meulen was appointed court painter to Louis XIV on 1 April 1664 and at the same time became Le Brun's collaborator in the tapestry manufactory. In 1673 he was accepted as a member of the Académie royale de Peinture et de Sculpture without any obligation to submit a morceau de réception; in 1681 he became conseiller and in 1686 premier conseiller. He died as a highly esteemed artist in the Hôtel des Gobelins 15 October 1690.

The anonymous author calls for the redefinition of the "pernicious and inseparable" common-law crimes of forgery and perjury as statutes, and thus felonious. This distinction would allow for the dispensing of capital sentences instead of the "minute punishment" of the pillory, fines or imprisonment, which "seldom produces any other effect than barely to make the Criminal the more incorrigible, and proves many times but as Sawce to craving Stomachs, preparing them the better to devour and consume the next dainties they can meet with" (2).

        [Franche Comté] Dole prise dans la premiere conqueste que le Roy a faite de la franche Comté en 1668 [Dôle, taken in the first conquest that the King made in Franche-Comté]

      Paris: distribuë par l'Auteur, en l'Hostel des Manufactures des Gobelins, et en la rue St.Jacques, 1685. Copper engraving, on two joined sheets, by Van Huctenburg and A.F. Baudouinst, after Van der Meulen. Titled in French and Latin. Painted from life by the artist who accompanied Louis XIV on his campaigns, Adam Frans Van der Meulen depicted in this wonderful panorama a post-battle view of Dôle, the capital of Franche-Comté, and the handsome surrounding region. In it, Louis XIV and his brother survey the city they've won from a hilltop. There is actually no unpleasant evidence of military activity except for some smoke billowing from the far side of Dôle.

        A New Systeme of Geography, designed in a most plain and easy method, for the better understanding of that science. Accommodated with new mapps, of all the ... countreys in the whole world. With geographical tables explaining the divisions in each mapp. By John Seller, hydrographer to the king]

      [London]: Sold at his shop on the West-side of the Royal Exchange, 1685. Small octavo. (5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches). Letterpress text: 1-80 pp.only. 1 engraved additional title, 1 uncoloured engraved plate, with attached volvelle, 30 hand-coloured double-page engraved maps, 28 (of 30) leaves of engraved text (printed recto only, as issued). (Lacking letterpress text leaves after p.80, engraved title cut to plate edge and neatly laid down). Contemporary mottled calf, expertly rebacked to style with the spine in five compartments with raised bands, lettered in gilt in the second Provenance: early indistinct inscription on front pastedown (concerning original cost of the book, see note below). The first edition of John Seller's very rare work: one of the earliest English world atlases. The letterpress title-page confirms that this is the 1685 first edition of Seller's New Systeme. .. Lord Wardington noted that "Seller's pocket atlases are among the earliest 'English' world atlases; they are superior in execution and content to contemporary rivals, such as Jonas Moore's A New Systeme of the Mathematicks (London, 1681) or Morden's Geography Rectified (London, 1680, with later editions) and are appreciably rarer, the several editions of the New Systeme extant in only a handful of copies." This assessment is confirmed by OCLC who list only 6 copies of this first edition (Clements Library; Yale, University of Alberta, British Library [2 copies], Bayerische Staatsbibliothek), and by auction records. No copies are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty-five years. Only five copies of any edition of this work are listed as having sold. Lord Wardington's 1695 edition was withdrawn from the sale and presented to the British Library by Lady Wardington. Seller seems to have sold the atlas in much the same way as the great Dutch composite atlases of the period, as Lord Wardington notes "the New Systeme seems to have been made up to order," a maximum of 110 pages (numbered 1-30, 33-112) of text is recorded. The number of maps varies: one of "the British Library's examples originally contained twenty-seven maps (four are missing, and one extra added), while the Library of Congress' example contains fifty-one maps." Contemporary confirmation of Lord Wardington's suspicions seems to be given here by the early inscription apparently shows that the cost of the book was calculated according to the number of maps it contained, along with the 'desc.' or number of text leaves that the purchaser chose to accompany the maps. A comparison with Rodney Shirley's description of one of the British Library copies (T.Sell-7a, which has only 23 maps) shows that the present example has 11 maps not in the BL copy, but also does not include four maps which are: one of 'The XVII Provinces', a second of 'the city of Hamburgh', a third of 'Lesser Tartaria' and a fourth 'Morea'. The fullest listing of maps which were offered for inclusion in the various editions of A New Systeme is given by Phillips (vol.IV, # 4267) where a numbered list of the 58 maps in the Library of Congress's 1690 edition is given. A comparison with that list shows that the present copy includes the following maps (identified by number): 1-3, 7-11, 13-14, 16-21, 23, 24, 27, 28, 30-34 and 51. The Phillips list does not include the 'A New Mapp of the World' or 'A Mapp of the World Shewing what a Clock it is', 'A Mapp of the Kingdom of England and Wales', 'Spaine' - all of which are also in the present atlas. Betz Africa 134; cf. Phillips Atlases III, 3450 (1685 edition with 51 maps) & IV, 4267 (1690 edition with 58 maps) ; cf. Shirley Maps in the Atlas in the British Library T.Sell-7a (23 maps); Shirley World 524 and 525; cf. Wing S2477.

        HISTOIRE DE LA CONQUESTE DE LA FLORIDE, PAR LES ESPAGNOLS, SOUS FERDINAND DE SOTO

      Paris, 1685. 12mo. Contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt extra. Corners bumped and rubbed. Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown, later bookplates on rear pastedown. Internally clean. Near fine. The first available edition of this extremely important narrative, preceded by the 1557 original (of which only four copies are known), and two issues published by Richard Hakluyt in 1609 and 1611, in English. The identity of the Gentleman of Elvas has remained a mystery. His narrative is the primary source for information concerning the De Soto expedition of 1539-43, the first investigation by Europeans of the southeast region of the United States. De Soto landed on the west coast of Florida in 1539, marching north through Georgia and west to Mobile Bay. His party reached the Mississippi River in 1541 and went perhaps as far as the present Oklahoma-Arkansas border. Returning east, De Soto died and was buried in the Mississippi. The survivors floated to the Gulf and made it to Mexico.

         Manuale bombardicum oder: Hand-Büchlein, über die Bixenmeisterey. Augsburg, Jakob Koppmayer, 1693. 12mo. With engraved frontispiece, 8 engraved plates (5 folding) and a letterpress folding table. Contemporary half sheepskin parchment. .

      Gerrare 231; Jähns, p. 1227; VD17 12:641431M (1 copy); cf. VD17 39:120516V (4 copies of 1st ed.). Second copy located, of the expanded second edition of a concise artillery manual. The present edition notes only that it was " ... beschrieben und vermehrt durch Joannem Edelium", but it is almost certainly an expanded edition of the same publisher's 1685 work with the same title, which explicitly notes Johann Eugenius as its author. Jähns approvingly says about this rare 1685 edition: "Das kleine, für die Brusttasche eingerichtete Büchlein ist prachtig angeordent und mit ganz guten Zeichnungen ausgestattet".With chapters on how to aim, how to fire, how to shoot at night, how to use a howitzer, what to do when ammunition jams, etc.With an inscription on the first flyleaf. Two plates and one table bound in erroneous order, a tear in one folding plate, some minor foxing and a few small stains; a good copy. Binding rubbed and with some damage to the hinges, but still firm..
