        Wageningen - Frederick de Wit, ca. 1690.

      WAGENINGEN IN DE 17DE-EEUWKopergravure uit de stedenatlas van Frederick de Wit ?Perfecte Aftekeningen der steden van de XVII Nederlandsche provincien in plattegronden?, uitgegeven ca. 1690. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 42,2 x 53,5 cm.Na de brand die uitgeverij Blaeu in 1672 verwoestte, had Frederick de Wit een deel van de koperen platen uit de boedel van Blaeu overgenomen en gaf deze met kleine wijzigingen onder eigen naam uit. De kaart van Wageningen kwam niet voor in het Stedenboek van Blaeu en verscheen dus rond 1690 voor het eerst. De oplage van De Wit?s Stedenboek was vele malen kleiner dan die van Blaeu, dat maakt de plattegrond van Wageningen dus zeldzaam!Frederick de Wit (1630-1706) was graveur en kaart verkoper geboren in Gouda. Door zijn huwelijk met Maria van der Waag in 1661 verkreeg hij zijn burgerrecht voor Amsterdam waar hij sinds 1648 werkte. Hij werd daar een van de beroemdste kaartenmakers van de 2e helft van de 17e eeuw. Alhoewel hij als katholiek zeker niet bevoordeeld was, prijkte zijn naam op de stedelijke lijst van ?goede mannen? van 1694 tot 1704.Prijs: ?1.650,-.

        Antique Master Print-MOUNTAIN LANDSCAPE WITH LAKE-VILLAGES-H.73-Waterloo-1690

      - Plate: Mountain Landscape with figures and a lake with towns (Hollstein 73). 17 th. c. ed. on paper with no watermark visible. Expert assessment. Provenance: with collection mark: vE (in circle): (van Eeghen, Lugt 385) Etching on a verge type hand laid paper. Description: 17th c. etchings of Antonie van Waterloo are scarse. It is assumed by experts that Cornelis Danckerts II acquired control of the waterloo plates as early 1655, so well during Waterloo's lifetime. As such most 17th. C. plates are published by Danckerts. The numbering of the plates also points to that. The plates later passed over to the Ottens family earliest 1717.Artists and Engravers: This plate was etched by the reknown Anthonie (Anthony) Waterloo. Although etched he is known to have added accents to his work by burin and other engraving techniques as well. Anthonie Waterloo (1609-1690) is born in Lille, but his family moved to Amsterdam probably to escape religious persecution. He was a painter and etcher and famous for his landscapes (136 items). He developed his own style, probably as an auto-didact. Although Waterloo traveled widely, many of his landscapes were probably imagined in the workshop and were influenced by the work of other landscapists. Condition: Very good. Excellent impression. General age related toning. Staining at top middle. With narrow margins, as common. Some remains of paper tape on rear from previous storing. This item has not been washed, cleaned, bleached, restored. Please study scan carfully. Storage location: Q2-263 LA The overall size is ca. 6.6 x 4.5 inch. The image size is ca. 6.5 x 4.4 inch.

        Mercurio geografico overo guida geografica in tutte le parti del mondo conforme le tavole geografiche del Sansone Baudrand e Cantelli. Data in luce con direttione, e cura di Gio. Giacomo de Rossi nella sua stamperia

      Roma, De Rossi 1690 - In folio (mm 477x325). Frontespizio calcografico raffigurante Mercurio, Sansone, Europa, Asia, Africa ed America, pp. [4: Catalogo delle Tavole], 97 carte geografiche incise in rame su doppia pagina con i confini colorati a mano all'epoca. Piena bazzana coeva, dorso a sette nervi con ricchi fregi e titolo in oro (minimi restauri agl'angoli, qualche macchia e spellatura, cerniere lievemente aperte, ma ottimamente conservata). Al verso del titolo firma di appartenenza, in parte cassata: "Ad usum Presbiteri Joannis Beri". La stessa mano ha corretto la numerazione delle tavole nell'indice -l'estensore essendosi accorto che una delle carte relative ai Paesi Bassi è in realtà rilegata fuori posto-; ha numerato le mappe dalla 1 alla 50 conformemente alla numerazione da lui corretta nell'indice; infine ha integrato l'indice a stampa aggiungendo numero, titolo e data per le 12 mappe aggiuntive che non compaiono nell'indice a stampa, che si ferma alla carta 85. Titolo più corto del resto del volume nel margine esterno, fioriture sparse, lieve alone marginale alle ultime carte, ma ottima copia genuina. Importante raccolta di carte geografiche, curata dallo stampatore Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi in collaborazione con il cartografo del Duca di Modena Giacomo Cantelli. La collaborazione tra i due, cominciata nel 1679, durò fino alla morte del Cantelli, avvenuta nel 1695. Le singole carte geografiche sono datate dal 1669 al 1690. A parte alcune mappe firmate dai cartografi francesi Michael Antoine Baudrand, Guillaume Sanson, Nicholas Sanson e Augustin Lubin, la gran parte delle carte è opera del Cantelli. Tra gli incisori figurano i nomi di Jean Lhuillier, Francesco Donia, Vincenzo Mariotti ed altri. Il Mercurio geografico ebbe grande successo e continuò ad essere pubblicato, anche dopo la morte del Cantelli, fino a Settecento inoltrato con l'aggiunta di una seconda parte e di numerose nuove carte. Ogni esemplare dell'opera differisce dall'altro in quanto a numero di tavole. Essendo queste state prodotte nel corso di diversi anni ed essendo anche vendute singolarmente, il possessore del volume aveva la possibilità di aggiungere a suo piacimento le ultime uscite, come testimonia perfettamente questo volume che presenta 12 tavole aggiuntive rispetto alle 85 indicate nell'indice. Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\VEAE\005442; A. Bonazzi, Il Mercurio geografico: il gioco e la differenza, in: "Giacomo Cantelli: geografo del Serenissimo", Bologna, 1995, pp. 37-44 e 150-152; A.

        Memoires relating to the state of the Royal Navy of England, for ten years, determin'd December 1688.

      London Printed anno MDCXC 1690 - First edition. 8vo (182 x 112 mm). [2], 214, [18] pp., large paper copy, inscribed "Ex dono Authoris" on the title page. With the portrait of Pepys by White after Kneller and folding accounts table, title printed in red and black, internally clean, contemporary mottled calf, A great example - A presentation copy from Pepys; royal Provenance (from the library of the future King William IV); and a large paper copy on thick paper. This issue was intended for private distribution, and instead of the imprint "printed for Ben. Griffin, and are to be sold by Sam. Keble", it reads instead "Printed anno MDCXC". This is a large paper copy, and the paper used is somewhat thicker and more substantial than that used for the ordinary copies. "Pepys had long intended to compile a naval history: the idea seems to have begun in 1664, when Coventry suggested he should write an account of the First Anglo-Dutch War. The scale of the proposed work gradually lengthened, and many books and notes were acquired with this distant prospect in view. Enforced leisure from 1679 to 1684 had allowed for further research, Evelyn providing much arcane knowledge from his own store. Pepys's renewed leisure, ample means, and reasonable health during the 1690s seemed likely to generate the great work, but it never came. The Memoires of 1690 were his only publication" (ODNB). Here the diarist looks back at the state of the Navy in 1679. Included is his proposition to the King for repairing the damage done to the Navy while Pepys was out of office for five years on account of accusations of supporting popery. Pepys supplies ideas for the improvement of administration, and a schedule of the fleet in December 1688. The Legard family has been long-established in North Yorkshire; Robert was a Naval Officer and so would have hada personal interest in the book. Wing P1449. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

A very clean and crisp copy in an excellent contemporary binding.Locke (1632-1704), considered the father of English empiricism, ìwas the first to take up the challenge of Bacon and to attempt to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge when confronted with God and the universe. In the past, similar enquiries had been vitiated by the human propensity to extend them beyond the range of human understanding, and to invent causes for what it cannot explain. Therefore, Lockeís first task was to ascertain ëthe original certainty and extent of human knowledgeí and, excluding ëthe physical consideration of the mind, to show how far it can comprehend the universeí. His conclusion is that though knowledge must necessarily fall short of complete comprehension, it can at least be ësufficientí; enough to convince us that we are not at the mercy of pure chance, and can to some extent control our own destinyî (Printing and the Mind of Man).Lockeís investigation was continued by Hume and Kant. John Stuart Mill considered him to be the founder of the analytic philosophy of mind.Attig 228. Grolier, 100 English, 36. Grolier, Wither to Prior, 527. Pforzheimer 600.

        Orbis Terrarum Nova et Accurata Tabula [Wall map of the World]

      Finely preserved and previously unknown 4-sheet double hemisphere map of the World, intended to be displayed by a 17th Century Aristocrat. In the 17th Century, at the height of the Golden Age of Dutch Cartography, Dutch published wall maps became an important decorating statement for aristocrats and wealthy traders in Western Europe. Artists such as Jan Vermeer captured the importance of these wall maps as objects of art in a number of his most famous paintings, such as his The Art of Painting : vermeer0708.wordpress.com/the-art-of-painting/ Among the most important of the late 17th Century mapmakers was Frederick De Wit of Amsterdam. De Wit continued the tradition of remarkable wall maps by Willem Blaeu, Nicholas Visscher and others, including several wall maps of the world in 4, 8 and 12 sheets, many of which would be copied and re-issued by the great Italian mapmakers of the late 17th Century, including Stefano Scholar, Pietro Todeschi and Guiseppe Longhi. Because of the size of these maps and use as objects of art, to be displayed prominently in the homes of the wealthy and ruling elite of Europe, very few examples of these maps have survived until modern times and when such maps survive, they are most typically in poor condition or heavily restored. In modern times, such 17th Century wall maps are highly coveted: www.finebooksmagazine.com/issue/201104/auction-1.phtml The present map is an unrecorded variant of one of Frederick De Wit's multi-sheet masterpieces, published by Gerard Valk, one of the leading map publishers and engravers in Amsterdam at the end of the 17th Century. Known primarily for fine engraving and high artistic quality, Valk's work is among the finest from the latter part of the Golden Age of Dutch Cartography. The map consists of a twin hemisphere world map, together with two polar projections. Surrounding the map are personifications of the four seasons (from upper left to lower right): spring, a dancing bear breasted Persephone is garlanded with spring flowers; summer, Ceres brings in the wheat harvest; autumn, Dionysis accompanied by satyrs and cherubs, collects the grape harvest, and adorn a herm with vines; winter, represented by strong man carrying a stick, Boreas the north wind can be seen blowing, whilst cherubs gut fish. The map is based upon Frederick de Wit's terrestrial world map executed in about 1670-1680 (Shirley 451). This magnificent map must have been published between 1690 and 1700, as the imprint which appears on the pedestal of the garlanded herm in the lower left plainly gives the place as 'op d'Dam inde Wackeren hont.' Gerard Valck and his family moved into this house (where the Hondius family had previously lived) in about 1690. A latest possible date of approximately 1700 is provided by a variant of this map which includes the name of Leonardus, Gerard's son, and, although smaller, contains new details such as the supposed Mer Glaciale in northernmost America (Shirley 638). Both this later map, an earlier Valck world map (Shirley 531 & 532, giving incorrect date of c.1686). Rodney Shirley opined that Valck's world maps were based on Jaillot's influential Mappe-Monde of 1674, but in fact all three bear a much closer relationship to de Wit's map. The present map shares many of de Wit's cartographic elements, particularly in the polar projections; but there are also numerous differences, some partly explained by this Valck map being on a larger scale than the original de Wit map, allowing greater detail and decoration. For instance, the gap between the words 'America' and 'Meridio' in Brazil are now decoratively filled with a native village and a battle scene; in other areas, such as the outline of the coast of New Zealand, the toponyms are engraved quite differently. The north-eastern coastline of Asia in the present work also bears a closer resemblance to the 1666 world map of Jan van Loon (Shirley 439). The present example is a remarkable survival, especially in such magnificient condition. The condition is, without question, the finest we have ever seen for a multi-sheet wall map of the 17th Century. C.f. Shirely 451 for De Wit example.

        America Settentrionale colle nuove scoperte fin all' anno 1688

      V. M. Coronelli, Venice 1690 - Copper-engraved map, on two joined sheets, in excellent condition. A superlative impression of Coronelli's important and innovative map, and a foundation map for any serious collection of the cartography of North America Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, a Venetian scholar and Minorite Friar, became one of the most celebrated map and globe makers of his era. Throughout his industrious life he produced more than one-hundred terrestrial and celestial globes, several hundred maps, and a wealth of cartographic publications. In 1683, he completed the Marly Globes for Louis XIV, the largest and most magnificent globes ever made. In 1684 he founded the Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, the first geographical society, and was appointed Cosmographer of the Republic of Venice. He published two atlases, the Atlante Veneto (Venice, 1691) and the Isolario (1696-98), and compiled the first encyclopaedia to be arranged alphabetically. This magnificent map of North America, published in the Atlante Veneto , is widely considered to be one of Coronelli's finest maps, and is cartographically similar to the scene depicted on his famous globe of 1688. Printed initially on two separate sheets, the present example has been carefully joined to form a wonderful unified image. The map is beautifully preserved in its uncoloured state, as originally intended. Artistically, it is a masterpiece of late Baroque engraving. Its title cartouche, featuring scenes of gods blessing the era of European expansion evince the sumptuous style of Coronelli's Venice. Finely engraved scenes of native Americans and real or imagined beasts adorn the land and seas. Apart from displaying a fine aesthetic sense, Coronelli has rendered the continent with far greater geographical detail than his contemporaries, having benefited enormously from his favour at the French court and his publishing partnership with Paris cartographer Jean-Baptiste Nolin. The Great Lakes are drawn with unrivalled accuracy, drawing on information gleaned in 1673 by the Quebecois explorer Louis Jolliet, and his traveling companion, the French-born Jesuit Jacques Marquette. The Mississippi basin is rendered with great detail, reflecting French discoveries, most notably those by René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle on his first expedition of 1679-82. This map depicts La Salle's dramatic misplacement of the mouth of the Mississippi 600 miles to the west of its true location. Importantly, it is on the western portion of the map where Coronelli has added the most significant amount of new information, drawn mostly from a highly important manuscript map by Diego Dionisio de Peñalosa Briceño y Berdugo, which included numerous previously unrecorded place names and divided the Rio Grande into the Rio Norte and the Rio Bravo in the south. The manuscript map was probably originally prepared by Peñalosa between 1671 and 1687 as part of his attempts to interest the French King Louis XIV in his plans to mount an military expedition against New Spain. The most prominent geographical detail of the map is California's appearance as a massive island, this map being one of the best renderings of this beloved misconception. The precise geographical details are enlivened by the presence of numerous captions noting discoveries or details of the terrain.
