         Iaponia Regnum.

      1688. "Mappa del Giappone e della Corea dall'Atlas Sinensis di Joan Blaeu. Anche se intitolata ""Iaponia Regnum"", la caratteristica più interessante di questa mappa è che si tratta della prima a mostrare correttamente la Corea correttamente come una penisola, a differenza delle precedenti che la raffiguravano come un'isola. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva, piccoli restauri visibilie al verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione." Nice example of Blaeu's map of Japan & Korea from Joan Blaeu's Atlas Sinensis. While titled as a map of Japan, perhaps the single most noteworthy feature of this map is as the first map to show Korea correctly as a peninsula, as opposed to an island on earlier maps. Copperplate with fine original colour, washed and refreshed, otherwise good condition. Walters, 38; OAG, 28

         Siam, ó Iudia. Dedicata Dal P. Cosmografo Coronelli, All'Illustrissimo Sig: Giovanni Emo, Figliuolo dell'Eccellentissimo S. Pietro

      " Rara e storicamente importante mappa dell'antica capitale del Siam, Ayuthaya, ideata dal Coronelli immediatamente prima della rivoluzione siamese del 1688, che limitò le attività europee nella regione. Il termine Siam è un esonimo usato dagli occidentali già dal XVII secolo, a denominare quello che allora era in realtà il regno di Ayutthaya, corrispondente all'attuale Thailandia. Esemplare tratto dal rarissimo ""Citta, Fortezze e, Isole, e Porti principlai dell'Europa in Pianta et in Elevatione, Descritte, e Publicate Ad uso dell'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti dal Padre Maestro Coronelli Lettore, e Cosmografo della Serenissima Republica di Venezia"" edito a Venezia da Domenico Padovani nel 1689. Incisione in rame, magnifica prova, con pieni margini, tracce di colla alla piega centrale, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione." "Scarce and historically important map of the Siamese capital of Ayutthaya, by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, issued immediately prior to the Siamese Revolution of 1688, which henceforth restricted European activities in the kingdom. This example of the map is taken from the very rare Coronelli's ""Citta, Fortezze e, Isole, e Porti principlai dell'Europa in Pianta et in Elevatione, Descritte, e Publicate Ad uso dell'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti dal Padre Maestro Coronelli Lettore, e Cosmografo della Serenissima Republica di Venezia"" printed in Venice by Domenico Padovani in 1689. The present work is the finest and most important printed map of Ayutthaya (transliterated on the map as 'Iudia'), which served as the capital the Kingdom of Siam (Thailand) during the 'golden age' of the Ayutthaya Period (1351-1767). Ayutthaya was located further up the Chao Praya River from modern Bangkok and is thought to have been the world's largest city at time, with over 1 million residents. Foreign visitors were dazzled by the scope and wealth of the metropolis, which was favorably compared to Paris. Siam was then a major Asian power, and included not only present day Thailand, but also parts of modern Cambodia and Malaysia. As shown, the city was located on an island, divided by canals. Large temples and palaces were built near the water, while substantial built up areas of houses with market places made up the majority of the city. Areas alloted to Europeans are noted, such as the appearence of several churches and the long-established 'Quatrtiere de Portughesi' (Portuguese Quarter). An inset on the left shows the progress of the 'F[leuve] Siam' (Chao Praya River) southwards towards 'Bancoc' (Bangkok), then a comparatively small fortified settlement. The composition is finished by the appearance of the attractive royal arms of Siam, which feature an elephant. Siam was first visited by Europeans in 1511, when Duarte Fernandes led a Portuguese embassy to Ayutthaya. While Siam was never formally colonized or claimed by a European power, the French and Dutch had set up trading posts and Christian missions along the Chao Praya estuary. The present plan was the result of France's first embassy to Siam 1685, which was led by the Chevalier de Chaumont in the company of six Jesuit fathers. Louis XIV had long maintained an especially friendly correspondence with King Narai of Siam (ruled 1656-1688), and was eager to shore up their relationship. During Chaumont's visit, his Jesuit companions, who were well-versed in cartography, made manuscript plans of Ayutthaya which were soon dispatched to Paris. However, shortly after Chaumont's embassy, there was an intense popular uprising against the growing foreign presence in Siam and the king's seeming obsession with everything European. King Narai even went as far as to make a Greek adventurer, Constantine Phaulkon, his de facto prime minister. This was all too much for Siamese officials and nationalists. In what became know as the Siamese Revolution of 1688, forces loyal to the Mandarin Phetracha overthrew Narai's government. Phetracha ascended to the throne and immediately expelled the French from Siam, while severely limiting the activities of the Dutch and other foreigners. This ensured that following the publication of the present map very little new European mapping was executed in Siam during the 18th-century. Ayuttaya was sacked by the Burmese in 1767, which led to the fall of the Ayutthaya kingdom, after which point Bankok grew in importance. Today many fine ruins can still be visited in Ayutthaya. The present map was issued by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (1650-1715), a Venetian master who had been invited to Paris by Louis XIV to undertake cartographic projects, including the construction of the colossal 'Marly Globes'. Coronelli was given access to the Jesuit manuscripts of Ayutthaya, which they fashioned into the present map. This map is one of several groundbreaking Coronelli maps of many parts of the World, done during a time when France assumed a leading role in the exploration of America and Asia. The Coronelli plan of Ayutthaya is one of the most important early maps relating to Thailand and Asian urban history, and is a cornerstone of any serious collection."

         Les larmes de Jacques Pineton de Chambrun, qui contiennent les persecutions arrivées aux Eglises de la Principauté d'Orange, depuis l'an 1660. La chute & le relevement de l'auteur. Avec le reniement de S. Pierre en son apostolat

      Chez Henry Van Bulderen 1688 - - Chez Henry Van Bulderen, A La Haye 1688, In-12 (9,5x16cm), (8) 256pp., relié. - Edition originale. Reliure en pleine basane brune mouchetée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre de maroquin brun. Coiffe de tête arrachée. Un coin cassé manquant. Un coin émoussé. Ensemble frotté. Jusqu'en 1660, l'église protestante de la Principauté d'Orange connut la prospérité, date à laquelle le territoire commença à subir les effets de la politique anti-protestante du royaume. La principauté fut plusieurs fois occupés par les soldats et les protestants connurent des persécutions (les fameuses Dragonnades perpétrés par les Dragons). En 1685, les pasteurs de l'église d'Orange furent déportés à Lyon pour être emprisonnés, en devant abjurer leur foi et embrasser la catholique. Jacques Pineton de Chambrun, qui raconte les persécutions subis par les protestants et les pasteurs, promis ainsi de se faire catholique (c'est l'objet du sermon sur le Reniement de Saint Pierre). Par suite d'une fracture, l'auteur fut transporté à Valence, puis il obtint la permission de se rendre à Lyon où il réussit à s'échapper pour se réfugier à Genève. Il gagna ensuite La Haye, ville où il prononça son fameux sermon. L'ouvrage constitue un témoignage important des exactions subis par les Protestants. Ex libris Hardwicke knight, avec un écureuil.

         Copia de una carta que ha escrito desde la ciudad de Argel el padre procurador Fray Antonio de Espinosa, religioso calzado del Orden de la Santissima Trinidad, redencion de cautivos, y administrador de los cinco reales hospitales, que su sagrada religion tiene en aquella ciudad.(Colophon: Madrid, Sebastian de Armendariz), 12 October [1688]. Small 4to (19 x 14 cm). With a large woodcut initial with a parrot. Disbound.

      - Palau 82664; WorldCat (1 copy). Very rare first and only early edition of a letter written by the Spanish friar Antonio de Espinosa at Algiers, after the city had been bombed by the French navy in 1688. Espinosa worked as an administrator at the hospitals of the Trinitarian Order in the city. He describes the arrival of the French fleet on 26 June, the diplomatic actions between the French and the ruler of Algiers, and the subsequent bombing of the city. The bombing led to reciprocal trials and executions by Algiers's government against the non-native inhabitants of the city, including Espinosa. Algiers was an important base for pirates, who started attacking French ships after the city signed a peace treaty with Great Britain. The French responded with bombardments in 1683 and 1688, which led to a peace treaty in 1690. Browned and with a water stain in the head margin, otherwise in good condition.

         L'esercizio accademico di Picca. Consacrato all'altezza serenissima di Ranuccio Farnese Duca di Parma, Piacenza

      Stamperia Ducale, Parma 1688 - In-4 oblungo (230x170 mm.), pp. 108. 2 frontespizi (di cui il primo inciso in rame inciso da Nicola Alù su disegno di Ferdinando Bibiena), arma dei Farnese incisa a piena pagina, 48 belle incisioni in rame, di cui 1 fuori testo e 47 nel testo a mezza pagina, raffiguranti diverse evoluzioni militari, incise sempre da Nicola Alù. Legatura in pieno marocchino moderno verde cupo, piatti incorniciati da filetto in oro, dorso a 5 nervi filettati in oro con autore, silloge del titolo, data cronica incisi in oro. Tagli dorati. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione originale e unica. Erra grossolanamente il Thimm (p. 322) nel credere esserci un'edizione precedente a questa, che sarebbe datata 1628, anno in cui il conte Vezzani era ancora a venire. A maggior riprova, l'autore cita personaggi che si sarebbero esercitati nel suo esercizio di picca, tutti attivi dopo il 1660, oltre alla menzione di una pubblica esibizione che si sarebbe tenuta a Parma il "29 febbraio del 1688 anno corrente" (pag.106). Erra inoltre nella numerazione delle tavole, che non devono essere 47 bensì 48 (poiché si trova un'incisione volante fuori testo tra pag. 104 e pag. 105, riportante le evoluzioni numerate 38, 39, 40) che è fondamentale per la comprensione dell'accademico esercizio.

         La botanique. Paris, Baudouin brothers, 1822. Large 4to (36 x 27 cm). With a stipple-engraved "Roussœa Simplex" (alluding to the author's name) used as a vignette on the title-page and 65 stipple-engraved plates printed in colour (inked à la poupée ) and finished by hand. Later 19th-century brown half sheepskin.

      Cat. Redoutéana 37 note; Stafleu & Cowan 9688; cf. Dunthorne 252; Nissen, BBI 1688. Rare second edition, printed from the original plates of the 1805 first edition, of Redouté's beautifully illustrated publication of letters on botany by the great philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), written in the years 1771 to 1773 and apparently first published in 1782. The plates show flowers, fruits, bulbs, leaves, etc. of flowering plants and trees, some showing whole plants and others showing details, sometimes cut away to reveal anatomical details. The book serves largely as a vehicle to display the botanical art of Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) who executed all the paintings or watercolour drawings. They were stipple-engraved and (except for that used as a title-vignette) printed in colour à la poupée and finished by hand. Although Rousseau's letters had been published earlier, they first appeared with Redouté's illustrations in 1805, in both a folio and a quarto issue, the latter reissued in 1821.

         Cantus omnis ecclesiasticus ad hebdomadae maioris Missas, passionem D.N.I.C., Officia Tenebrarum, Lamentationes, Benedictiones, Processiones, &c.

      Mutinae, ex Typographia Haeredum Cassiani, 1688. In folio (cm. 33,1); mezza pelle dell'Ottocento: antiporta con croce e musica in xilografia; frontespizio in rosso e nero; pp. 12 nn., 265 + 11 nn. + un foglietto di "errata" inserito tra p. 205 e la prima carta n.n. (prima errata). Testo incorniciato; molte raffinate vignette in xilografia (ultima cena, crocifissione, resurrezione...). A piena pagina diverse croci con all'interno della musica ed al lato due angeli. Bella copia. Marzio Erculei nacque ad Otricoli (Terni)... Quasi certamente compì i suoi studi musicali a Roma nel collegio germanico-ungarico... Dopo una breve comparsa nella cappella del Duomo di Milano, nel 1651, già ordinato sacerdote entrò come "musico ecclesiastico" al servizio della corte Estense di Modena, rimanendovi fino al 1674. In quegli anni si distinse come soprano in alcune opere date a Modena. Nel 1674, dopo aver invano tentato di ottenere un canonicato nel duomo di Modena, si ritirò dal servizio presso la corte ed entrò nella locale Congregazione religiosa della Beata Vergine e di S. Carlo, proseguendo l'insegnamento della musica e del canto e dando vita ad una sorta di scuola per giovani cantanti... Tra i suoi allievi: Antonio Maria Pacchioni, Rinaldo Bertoni e Francesco Montecchi... All'attività didattica del canto, in particolare di quello gregoriano, sono per lo più collegate le sue pubblicazioni: "Cantus omnis ecclesiasticus" contenente oltre ai canti gregoriani della Settimana Santa, alcuni falsobordoni a tre o quattro voci, adespoti e forse attribuibili all'E. stesso. Nel 1694, trovandosi a Loreto, chiese al Duca di Modena Rinaldo d'Este di potervisi trattenere in qualità di cappellano ducale presso il santuario della Santa Casa, "con l'obbligo d'applicare quotidianamente il Santo sacrificio per la salute e conservatione" della Casa Estense. Ottenuto l'incarico richiesto, l'E. rimase a Loreto non oltre il 1702, poiché il 15 gennaio di quell'anno risulta essere di nuovo a Modena nel Collegio di San Carlo, dove morì il 5 agosto 1706.

         Dania regnum In quo sunt Ducatus Holsatia et Slesvicum Insulae Danicae et Provinciae Jutia, Scania, Blekingia et Hallandia

      Artist: Wit de Frederick ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1688 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restoration at lower centerfold; - size (in cm): 50 x 58; - description: Map shows total Denmark; - vita of the artist: Frederik de Wit (1610 ? 1698) His Atlas began to appear around 1662 and by 1671 included anywhere from 17 to 151 maps each. In the 1690s he began to use a new title page "Atlas Maior" but continued to use his old title page. His atlas of the Low Countries first published in 1667,was named Nieuw Kaertboeck van de XVII Nederlandse Provinciën and contained 14 to 25 maps. Frederik de Wit quickly expanded upon his first small folio atlas which contained mostly maps printed from plates that he had acquired, to an atlas with 27 maps engraved by or for him. By 1671 he was publishing a large folio atlas with as many as 100 maps. Smaller atlases of 17 or 27 or 51 maps could still be purchased and by the mid-1670s an atlas of as many as 151 maps and charts could be purchased from his shop. In ca.1675 Frederik de Wit released a new nautical atlas. The charts in this atlas replaced the earlier charts from 1664 that are known today in only four bound examples and a few loose copies. Frederik de Wit new charts were sold in a chart book and as part of his atlases. Frederik de Wit published no fewer than 158 land maps and 43 charts on separate folio sheets.In 1695 Frederik de Wit began to publish a town atlas of the Netherlands after he acquired a large number of city plans at the auction of the famous Blaeu publishing firm?s printing plates.Dating Frederik de Wit atlases is considered difficult because usually no dates were recorded on the maps and their dates of publication extended over many years.

         Paradise Lost: A Poem in Twelve Books.

      London: Printed by Miles Flesher, for Jacob Tonson, at the Judge's-Head in Chancery-lane near Fleet-street, 1688. First illustrated edition of Milton's masterpiece. Folio, bound in full calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, with portrait frontispiece, illustrated throughout. In very good condition with some toning to the text, contemporary name. A very nice example. First published in 1667, "Paradise Lost is generally conceded to be one of the greatest poems in the English language; and there is no religious epic in English which measures up to Milton's masterpiece... Milton performed an artist's service to his God" (Magill, 511, 515). The writer and critic Samuel Johnson wrote that Paradise Lost shows off "[Milton's] peculiar power to astonish" and that "[Milton] seems to have been well acquainted with his own genius, and to know what it was that Nature had bestowed upon him more bountifully than upon others: the power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful, darkening the gloomy, and aggravating the dreadful." By 1688, when England was on the verge of the Whig revolution, Milton's reputation had revived considerably. He was commended for his republicanism as well as his record as a defender of liberty. His supporters believed that his greatest poetic achievement merited this handsome, monumental edition. One of the earliest examples of subscription publishing, financed by Lord Somers, the fourth edition of Paradise Lost was the first to be printed in folio format and is the first illustrated edition, distinguished by high quality paper, large, clear type, and ample margins. Milton had previously reorganized the poem into twelve books (by splitting Books 7 and 10 of the original) to parallel Virgil's Aeneid more closely.

         n.t. [Florida, Great Lakes - Globe Gore]

      1688 - Rare Globe Gore! Venice 1688 copper engraved map; overall 49 x 36 cm; plate approx. 43 x 26/ 10 cm. Paper evenly toned with some faint contemporary ink smudges; 2 printer’s creases; o/w exc. cond. A rare and beautifully engraved gore for Coronelli’s 42 inch terrestrial globe, covering the area from Florida/Louisiana/Texas to the Great Lakes and Hudson Bay, with parts of the Carolinas, Virginia and the Chesapeake area and parts of the West Indies. The map is embellished with indigenous people, fauna and flora, showing some interesting encounters with crocodiles. Nice strong impression with nice wide margins. Coronelli was a map and globe maker from Venice who joined the Franciscan Order in 1665. In 1684, he founded the Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti in Venice, and in 1685, became Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. In 1681, he was invited by the French King, Louis XIV, to make a pair of 3.85 m diameter globes. Once back in Venice, in 1686, he opened a globe making workshop. After having produced several large scale globes to various European rulers, he produced a 42 inch diameter globe in 1688 of which several examples are in various collections around the World. Occasionally, single gore sheets appear on the market which makes them sought after collector items. [ref: 3266]

Reliure en pleine basane brune mouchetée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre de maroquin brun. Coiffe de tête arrachée. Un coin cassé manquant. Un coin émoussé. Ensemble frotté. Jusqu'en 1660, l'église protestante de la Principauté d'Orange connut la prospérité, date à laquelle le territoire commença à subir les effets de la politique anti-protestante du royaume. La principauté fut plusieurs fois occupés par les soldats et les protestants connurent des persécutions (les fameuses Dragonnades perpétrés par les Dragons). En 1685, les pasteurs de l'église d'Orange furent déportés à Lyon pour être emprisonnés, en devant abjurer leur foi et embrasser la catholique. Jacques Pineton de Chambrun, qui raconte les persécutions subis par les protestants et les pasteurs, promis ainsi de se faire catholique (c'est l'objet du sermon sur le Reniement de Saint Pierre). Par suite d'une fracture, l'auteur fut transporté à Valence, puis il obtint la permission de se rendre à Lyon où il réussit à s'échapper pour se réfugier à Genève. Il gagna ensuite La Haye, ville où il prononça son fameux sermon. L'ouvrage constitue un témoignage important des exactions subis par les Protestants.  Ex libris Hardwicke knight, avec un écureuil.

         La botanique. Paris, Baudouin brothers, 1822. Large 4to (36 x 27 cm). With a stipple-engraved "Roussœa Simplex" (alluding to the author's name) used as a vignette on the title-page and 65 stipple-engraved plates printed in colour (inked à la poupée) and finished by hand. Later 19th-century brown half sheepskin.

      - Cat. Redoutéana 37 note; Stafleu & Cowan 9688; cf. Dunthorne 252; Nissen, BBI 1688. Rare second edition, printed from the original plates of the 1805 first edition, of Redouté's beautifully illustrated publication of letters on botany by the great philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), written in the years 1771 to 1773 and apparently first published in 1782. The plates show flowers, fruits, bulbs, leaves, etc. of flowering plants and trees, some showing whole plants and others showing details, sometimes cut away to reveal anatomical details. The book serves largely as a vehicle to display the botanical art of Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) who executed all the paintings or watercolour drawings. They were stipple-engraved and (except for that used as a title-vignette) printed in colour à la poupée and finished by hand. Although Rousseau's letters had been published earlier, they first appeared with Redouté's illustrations in 1805, in both a folio and a quarto issue, the latter reissued in 1821. The present is a new edition, beautifully printed by Alexandre Baudouin and his brother on heavy wove paper.The text leaves are slightly foxed throughout, but the plates show only occasional light foxing. Otherwise in very good condition, with only a browned patch in the gutter margin of one plate, not approaching the image. Some plate numbers trimmed off. Binding scuffed but structurally very good. A lovely display of Redouté's botanical art matched to the botanical writings of the French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau. [Attributes: First Edition]

And now made English, and illustrated with sculptures.

Contemporary unlettered panelled calf, red sprinkled edges. Some neat professional repairs to the joints and corners, front free endpaper renewed, ownership inscription erased from front pastedown, slip of plain paper pasted to pastedown, front free endpaper removed, a few trivial marks, most noticeable in the first quire, outer leaves of final quire a little dusty and creased at foot, overall a very good copy. Additional engraved title page and 30 engraved plates, views, and maps, mostly folding, many after Hendrik Claudius. With license-to-print on verso of title page. Page 308 misnumbered 298. First edition in English of Tachard's Voyage de Siam des pères jésuites (1686); one of two issues, this issue with a cancel title. The first French mission to Siam (modern Thailand) came about as a result of an invitation of Constantine Phaulkon, a Greek adventurer who by a curious twist of fate had become prime minister of Siam. In response to Phaulkon's urging that the king of Siam was ripe for conversion, Louis XIV agreed to send an embassy. The Marquis de Chaumont was selected as ambassador, assisted by the Abbé de Choisy. Six Jesuit fathers were willing to accompany the mission. Tachard stayed with the Siamese mission as geographer; the other five continued to China, where they helped establish the French mission at Peking. Tachard returned to France with the ambassador in December 1685, taking with them Kosa Pan, an official of the Siamese court, as an ambassador to the French king. The embassy reached France in June 1686 and stayed there until March 1687, during which time Tachard wrote this account, before himself returning to Siam on a second expedition. The book also describes the expedition's sojourn at the Cape Colony, where, despite Dutch suspicion of French designs in the region, they received a hospitable welcome from the governor, Simon van der Stel, and the Cape Commissioner Van Rheede. Tachard describes Van der Stel as popular and efficient; they had long conversations and discussed the governor's expedition to Namaqualand and the plants and animals observed. While at the Cape the Jesuits were given the use of a house and a building in the Company's garden from which to make astronomical observations. Local Catholics flocked to visit the Jesuits in their "little observatory" where Tachard made a determination of the longitude of the settlement. Tachard's friendship with Van der Stel's artist, Hendrik Claudius, caused concern as it was thought that Claudius was giving too much political and economic information to the French and later led to him being removed from the Cape. Mendelssohn mentions that Claudius gave Tachard a map of South Africa showing the distribution of "the inhabitants of the country and the rarest animals". This could be the map facing page 66. The illustrations include two pictures of the inhabitants of the Cape Colony (one of Hottentots and one of Namaqua people), as well as several animals and reptiles. The book is well-held institutionally but scarce in commerce: auction records going back to 1957 show only four copies sold in that period.

"Bereits ab 1672 war er mit der Anfertigung eines (verschollenen) Holzmodells der Stadt Wien beauftragt, das er 1680 ablieferte und das eine Grundlage für den Anguissola-Marinoni-Plan bildete. Ab 1676 schuf er qualitätvolle Stadtprofile beziehungsweise Ansichten Wiens von Norden und Süden aus, von denen fünf überliefert sind (drei als Federzeichnungen, zwei als Stiche des 1683 in Wien weilenden Nürnberger Kupferstechers Johann Christoph Weigel). Während der Zweiten Türkenbelagerung (1683) war Suttinger in Wien und stand in engem Kontakt mit dem Oberstleutnant und Oberingenieur Georg Rimpler, dessen Festungsmanier Suttinger später in zwei Schriften verteidigte. Noch 1683 erhielt Suttinger den Titel eines Hauptmanns, im selben Jahr entstand eine Vogelschau des westlichen Teils der Stadt mit türkischen Laufgräben und Minen (circa 1:2.700), die Suttinger auch selbst stach (danach schuf er auch ein [verschollenes] Holzmodell), 1687 folgte ein Plan der Entsatzschlacht mit Darstellung der Umgebung Wiens (verschollene Federzeichnung, 1688 durch Mauritius Bodenehr in Dresden gestochen, circa 1:18.000). 1688 veröffentlichte er auch einen Bericht über die Belagerung. 1684 stellte Suttinger einen (nach 1939 verschollenen) Grundrissplan der Stadt Wien fertig (Federzeichnung, circa 1:1.800), der die Namen der Hausbesitzer enthielt und heute nur in Reproduktionen überliefert ist. 1688 begegnet uns Suttinger als Oberhauptmann der Kurfürstlich-Sächsischen Feldartillerie in Dresden" (Wien Gewschichte Wiki). - Auf zwei zusammengesetzten Blättern gedruckt. Etwas gebräunt bzw. angestaubt, stellenweise leicht fleckig. Mit den üblichen alten Faltstellen, in den Bildecken jeweils kl. Quetschfalte.

         The Alcoran of Mahomet

      London: printed and are to be sold by Randal Taylor,, 1688. Translated out of Arabick into French, by the Sieur du Ryer, Lord of Malezair, and Resident for the French King, at Alexandria. And newly Englished, for the Satisfaction of all that Desire to look into the Turkish Vanities. To which is prefixed, the Life of Mahomet, the Prophet of the Turks, and Author of the Alcoran. With a Needful Caveat, or Admonition, for them who desire to know what Use may be made of, or if there be Danger in reading the Alcoran. Folio (368 x 232 mm). Contemporary panelled sheep, rebacked to style, edges sprinkled red. Contemporary ownership inscription, "H. S. G.", to the initial blank. Slightly rubbed, skilful restoration to extremities and lower outer corners, light scattered craquelure, 2 superficial worm-tracks to rear board, inner hinges partially cracked, but sound, marginal browning to pastedowns and free endpapers, front free endpaper chipped, title page soiled and with old restoration to upper outer corner, mild undulation to text-block, occasional light spotting or soiling to margins, worm-track to upper inner corner from sig. Hh to rear pastedown, the text never affected. A very good copy. First folio edition of the first English translation of the Qur'an. The "Needful Caveat" is signed Alexander Ross (c.1590-1654), who was chaplain to King Charles I and is usually assumed to have been responsible for the translation as a whole, which was first published in 1649 in quarto and octavo editions. It was based on the first edition in French, which had appeared in 1647. The work was originally intended for royal dedication but was not ready by the time of Charles's execution in January 1649; on 19 March parliament issued a warrant to seize all copies of the book and Ross was summoned before a parliamentary committee, though the translation was eventually published several weeks later, with a prefatory address entitled "The Translator to the Christian Reader" together with Ross's caveat; there is also a 13-page "Life of Mahomet". Ross's caveat, which compares Islam to other historical heresies from the Old Testament and classical antiquity, demonstrates an "interest in comparative religion [which] reflects a new, albeit highly sceptical engagement with Islamic doctrine" (Birchwood, Staging Islam in England: Drama and Culture, 1640-1685, p. 67). Although the English translation was made directly from the French without reference to Arabic, it proved highly influential in continental Europe, and was the basis for further versions in Dutch, German, and Russian (Leaman, ed., The Qur'an: An Encyclopaedia, p. 667). Taylor also published an octavo edition in the same year, of which copies occasionally appear for sale; this folio version is highly uncommon, with no copies traced at auction.

         Memoir's for a Natural History of Animals. Containing the Anatomical Descriptions Of Several Creatures Directed by The Royal Academy of Sciences at Paris

      London: Printed by Joseph Streater, for sale by T Basset, J Robinson, B Aylmer, Joh Southby And W Canning, 1688 A very good copy of this important work on comparative anatomy with engraved title; rubricated title and 30 plates. The original publication had 2 separate parts, both complete in themselves - the second section 'The Measure of the Earth' translated by Richard Waller, is not present. Alexander Pitfeild undertook to translate this work, originally led by Charles Perrault for the Royal Academy of Sciences in Paris. Animals, mostly from the royal menageries at Vincennes and Versailles, were supplied to the Royal Academy, for detailed study and dissection. The first publication including 13 species, appeared in 1671 with a second volume 5 years later. The publications had very short print runs and were very expensive being elephant folio with detailed art work mainly by Sebastien Leclerc. There was a growing desire to learn about natural history and the nature of animals and copies of Perrault's work were almost impossible to obtain. Pitfeild's translation was much needed and it became the only work published on comparative anatomy in England between 1660 and 1700. Richard Waller undertook the illustrations, copying Leclerc but reducing the size, taking care to keep the drawings in proportion. The second part, missing here, was undertaken not because it was linked in any way, but because it was important and of interest to the Royal Society. Copies of Pitfeild's translation are extremely scarce. This copy is in a new binding with cloth spine with title label and paper-covered boards. Contents: engraved title page; rubricated title page; permission for printing by the Royal Society (with 2 ink reference numbers at the top); dedication; To The Reader 2pp; preface 9pp; text pp 1- 267 with 30 plates (p 1 with small stamp to bottom margin; a few light ink spots to bottom side margins pp 48 & 49; small repaired edge tear bottom p141; alphabetical table of animal names with errata 2pp; index of anatomical matters 11pp; finis. Contents in very good clean condition. There is some staining which is mostly to the top outer page corners and varies in intensity. Occasional light marking elsewhere.

         Le secrétaire turc contenant l'art d'exprimer les pensées sans se voir, sans se parler et sans s'écrire. Avec les circonstances d'une avanture turcque & une relation très curieuse de plusieurs particularitez du Serrail qui n'avoient point encore esté sceues.

      Paris, Michel Guerrout, 1688. ____ Edition originale de ce livre très curieux. "Il y a bien des manières d'exprimer l'amour. ... La plupart des Turcs "ne savent ni lire, ni écrire, & n'ont aucune liberté de communiquer avec les femmes. Ils ne sont pourtant pas insensibles; au contraire... Ce peuple qui manque des moyens ordinaires pour faire connaitre sa passion, tâche d'en inventer d'extraordinaires. Les fleurs, les fruits, les bois, les aromates, les soies, l'or, l'argent, les couleurs, les étoffes, & enfin presque toutes les choses qui servent au commerce de la vie, entrent chez les Turcs dans celui de l'amour. ... De sorte qu'un petit paquet, gros comme le pouce, si l'on a égard à ce qu'il enferme, compose un discours fort expressif". L'auteur explique donc tous les symboles, les idées ou même les phrases qui sont attachés à ces objets, et donne en quelque sorte un manuel de conversation galante par ce procédé. Cet ouvrage est aussi l'occasion de détailler les moeurs exotiques du Sérail et contient l'aventure amoureuse de Gulbeyaz, principale esclave de la Sultane Validé. L'auteur, Du Vignau ou des Joanots du Vignau, a été pendant neuf ans secrétaire de l'ambassade de France à Istamboul. Il avait publié l'année précédente "L'Etat présent de la puissance ottomane, avec les causes de son accroissement et celles de sa décadence". Brunet II, 931 : "Livre singulier." La dorure du dos est en partie éffacée. Note sur un feuillet de garde : "Vendu le 9 Juillet 1809 à la vente des livres de M. C. M. faite par Tillard à Paris 3 # 19 s. Voyez le n° 744 de son catalogue imprimé."*-------*. In-12. Collation : (8), 340 pp. Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        Faust Romantische Oper in 2 Aufzügen... im Klavierauszuge von P. Pixis... Zwey Akte 7. Rth 12 gr. [Piano-vocal score]

      Leipzig: C.F. Peters [PNs 1688; 1688 II], 1824. First Edition of the first version. Grove Music Online. OCLC no. 163227488. Hirsch IV no. 1283. Göthel p. 336. Faust, to a libretto by Joseph Carl Bernard, was first performed in Prague at the Estates Theatre on September 1, 1816. "... Faust marks an important landmark in the development of German Romantic opera. Spohr's concern to create scene complexes, rather than merely a string of individual numbers, points the way towards the continuity of his later operas. His striking use of chromatic harmony was recognized by Weber, who wrote in his introduction to the Prague première: 'this dark, Romantic spirit-world is ideally matched with the composer's inmost musical character. Owing to this fact the work as a whole is marked by great aptness of colour - grand musical and dramatic effects of charm and tenderness alternating with shatteringly powerful effects in the ensembles and choruses'." "Regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers, [Spohr] has, together with Gluck and Cherubini, been allotted a considerably lower status by posterity. Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during Spohr's lifetime; his own work looks, Janus-like, towards both the formalism and clarity of the Classical tradition, and the structural and harmonic experimentation associated with 19th-century Romanticism." Clive Brown in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Full contemporary dark green pebbled cloth with nitials "A. v B." in gilt to upper, titling gilt to spine. 1f. (title), [i] (table of contents), 2-99, [i] (blank), 3-110 pp. Each act separately paginated. Engraved. Text in German and Italian. Two publisher's handstamps to lower portion of title. Binding slightly worn. Minor dampstaining, most noticeable to first six leaves; some foxing.
