        Nieuwe doch aanmerkens-waardige historie van Abissinien, andersints Ethiopien, getrokken uit de Latijnsche historie . en nu in't Nederduitsch gebracht door Willem Calebius.

      - Utrecht, Johannes Ribbius, 1687.4to. Later half vellum, with old brocade-paper to boards. With folding map and 8 engraved plates (3 folding). 222,(10) pp.* First Dutch edition. - The treatise by the scholar, Job (Hiob) Ludolf (1624-1704), was first published in Latin, Historia Aethiopica, in 1681, and is regarded as the first authoritative account of Abyssinia. He has been called the 'founder of Ethiopian studies in Europe'. Although he never visited the country, Ludolf formed a close working relationship with an Ethiopian monk resident in Rome, himself clearly a highly intelligent man. From this fruitful partnership emerged grammars and dictionaries of the classical Ethiopian language as well as a lengthy history of the country. The large folding map by Tellez, is a landmark of cartography, as it is the first to show the source of the Blue Nile at Lake Tana. The fine plates depict illustrations of Ethiopean fauna, a banana plant, decapitation of missionnaries, etc.- (Owner's name on title-page; partly dampstaining, slight browning, stronger to one quire). - Rare Dutch edition.Tiele 702; Cat. NHSM I, p.203; Cox I, p.365: Still a valuable work; Gay 2658; Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p.395. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Totius Regni Hungariae et adjacentium Regionum Tabula

      Amsterdam 1687 - Totius Regni Hungariae et adjacentium Regionum Tabula A beautiful, highly detailed map of southeastern Europe by Nicolas Visscher. Includes regions of Northern Italy (showing the cities Bologna, Padua, and Venice), Bohemia, Austria (showing Vienna), Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, and the western coast of the Black Sea. Striking, vibrant, original color. An ornamental title cartouche is in the lower left corner. Truly outstanding, original color. The family of Visscher was one of the most distinguished of all seventeenth century cartographical firms, and major figures in the era now considered the Golden Age of Dutch mapmaking. In the late 1600's, a period of great geographical discovery, Amsterdam was the international center of cartography. A number of venerable firms, including those established by Blaeu, Jansson, and Hondius competed for the ever-expanding market for maps and atlases. Despite the intense competition, with maps such as these Nicolas Visscher set standards for exceptional quality that few other firms were able to equal. Boasting advanced geographical information, fine engraving and coloring, and striking decoration, Visscher's maps are fundamental illustrations of the reasons for Dutch supremacy in mapmaking during the 17th century. VISSCHER, N Amsterdam, 1687. 533 x 864 mm Original color A 7 inch repaired tear is in the lower right section of the map; some discoloration in paper margin.

First edition of this important catalogue of the Leiden botanic garden portraying numerous exotic recently introduced plants. "Hermann returned to Leiden in 1680 on receiving an appointment as Professor of Botany and director of the botanic garden. He devoted himself assiduously to building up the Leiden garden with rare plants from the East Indies, America and the Cape. His first publication, 'Horti academici Lugduno-Batavi catalogus', Leiden 1687, was a descriptive catalogue of the plants in the University garden in which many are attractively illustrated, including 34 Cape plants" (Gunn & Codd, Botanical exploration of Southern Africa pp. 26-27)."Paul Hermann was director of the Leiden Botanical garden from 1679-1695. He did excellent, vigorous work in depicting his plants, and one group of his drawings of Ceylon plants, made in the second half of the 17th century, had an interesting history. They were carefully preserved for many years by a series of collectors, one of whom finally brought them to the attention of Linné in 1745. Linné found them so exciting that he based his 'Flora Zeylandica' on them in 1747 ." (Hunt 378). Thousands of specimens from outside the Netherlands were in cultivation towards the end of the century and the garden attained world-wide reknown. The attractive allegorical frontispiece shows the Leiden botanical garden. Bound in cancelled leaves C3 and Aa7 as usual (see Hunt). At the outer margin 2 plates partially cut at plate edge.

        Pas kaart van de Zee kusten van Guiana Cabo Noord en Rio Amano

      Johannes van Keulen, Amsterdam 1687 - A very fine copy of this excellent and very early chart of French Guiana. This beautifully-finished map was published by innovative Dutch cartographer and publisher ,Johannes van Keulen, in the 1687 second edition of the third volume his Sea-Atlas [or Zee-Fakkel ]. The chart concentrates on Cayenne (now the capital of French Guiana) and coast to the north-west almost to the border with Surinam and south-east to the border with Brazil and beyond to the Rio Arowary, close to the mouth of the Amazon. There are two insets: one a close-up of the island of Cayenne, and the second of the French fort of the same name. The French made a number of abortive attempts to colonise the region, in 1604 and 1643, and it was not until 1664, when France finally succeeded at establishing a permanent settlement at Cayenne. As with most parts of the region, the area changed hand a number of times, between the French, Dutch and English, before being finally restored to France. Cf. Koeman IV, Keu109B. Copper-engraved map, full contemporary hand-colouring, heightened with gold.

        Pas-kaart van de Golff van Mexico

      Johannes Van Keulen, Amsterdam 1687 - Van Keulen's scarce 17th century chart of the western Gulf of Mexico, oriented with west to the north. Van Keulen's rare chart of the western portion of the Gulf of Mexico "covers the coastline from the panhandle of present day Florida around to the Yucatan peninsula. The main feature of this map is its originality of form. It is the first sea chart of the western portion of the Gulf of Mexico detailing the coastal waters of present-day Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. The geography is largely derived from the exceedingly rare Hessel Gerritz chart of c. 1631" (Burden). As expected, most of the toponyms are Spanish and the mouth of the Mississippi is labelled Baja de Spirito Sancto. Oriented to the west, "it represented the most sophisticated rendering of the coast then available" (Martin & Martin). The Van Keulen family were chart and instrument makers, and publishers of nautical textbooks, books on sea law, shipbuilding, almanacs and more. Founded by Joannes van Keulen (c.1654-1715), the firm remained in business for over 200 years. For the publication of his Zee-Fakkel, Keulen retained geographer and mathematician Claes Janszoon Vooght. Burden's second state, with the page number "14" added to the lower left corner, but before later additions and re-engravings. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 592; Martin & Martin, Maps of Texas and the Southwest p. 85, plate 11. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring. Inset of the waters near Vera Cruz.

        L'Architecture navale,

      Paris: Jean de la Caille,, 1687. contenant la manière de construire les navires, galères & chaloupes, & la définition de plusieurs autres espèces de vaisseaux. Avec les tables des longitudes, latitudes & marées, cours & distances des principaux ports des quatre parties du monde; une description des dangers, écueils, & l'explication des termes de la marine ; [issued with;] Le routier des indes orientales et occidentales … Quarto (241 × 172 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, title gilt direct to the spine, foliate lozenge to the compartments with spiral corner-pieces, edges sprinkled red. Joint title/half-title bound in, publisher's device to the title page of the first-named, which is complete with 7 plates, 5 of them folding, and a folding table. Slightly rubbed, corners bumped, a few small nicks on the boards, neatly restored on the joints, head- and tail-caps and at the corners, plates a little rolled at the fore-edge, one leaf misbound, light browning, but overall a very good copy. First edition. "Consideré comme le premier traité d'architecture navale" (Polak). Although perhaps not the first, Dassié's work is almost certainly the first such work written by a professional in the field, and framed in such a way as to be of practical assistance to fellow shipbuilders. Dassié is a somewhat obscure figure. He was apparently born in Normandy, and lived and worked at various times in both Le Havre and Rouen. On the title page he is styled "C.R.", or"chanoine régulier", a canon regular, of the Order of Saint-Ruf, an Augustinian order named for the first bishop of Avignon, with various sources describing him as master shipbuilder to the king at Le Havre, and to the coast guard at Toulon. As usual the work is bound together with Le Routier des Indes Orientales et Occidentales, which offers a compilation of 26 navigations into the East and West Indies based on Dutch and Portuguese sources.
