Künstler, I,68. - Im Auftrag des niederländischen Statthalters und englischen Königs Wilhelm III von Oranien-Nassau kolorierte und "vergrößerte" Anna Beek (1657-1717) eine Reihe von Ansichten, in dem sie das Originalblatt auseinander schnitt, auf größerem Papier - mit Zwischenraum - montierte und dann mit ihren bekannten, kräftigen (leuchtenden) Farben kolorierte. Sie verwandte Ansichten von Braun-Hogenberg, Janssonius oder Merian, die dann nach der Kolorierung zu einem großen Ansichtenwerk zusammengebunden wurden. Die Qualität des Kolorits ist in etwa vergleichbar mit dem legendären Kolorit des van Santen aus dem Atlas van der Hem. Der Atlas wurde in den 50er Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts aufgelöst und der Band der österreichischen (und südtiroler) Ansichten kam geschlossen in den Besitz des ehemaligen Artaria-Mitarbeiters Hans Philipp Gutacker, seine Erben verkauften sie ebenfalls geschlossen an ein Antiquariat im Rheinland.

        Nova Methodus ad vires motrices validissimus levi pretio comparandas. (A New Method of securing cheaply Motive Power of Considerable Magnitude) (+) Examen Siphonis VVurtemburgici in vertice effluentis. (Both papers by Papin).

      Leipzig, Grosse & Gleditsch, 1690. 4to. Contemp. full vellum. A bit of foxing to frontcover, but binding well-preserved. Handwritten title on spine. A small stamp on titlepage. In: "Acta Eruditorum Anno MDCLXXXX". (8),611 (recte 635),(6) pp. and 10 partly folded engraved plates of 11. The lacking plate (plate I) does not belong to any of the contained memoirs, but to a rewiev-article. As usual with various browning to leaves, but most of the quires clean. Some offesttings to plates or from. The 2 Papin-papers: pp. 410-414 and 1 folded enraved plate, showing Papin's Steem Engine. and pp. 223-228. First edition and first appearance in print of the description of this highly important invention, an invention that pushed the world into the Industrial Age. In 1681 Papin published his invention of the "safety-valve", and in 1687 he outlined another invention, the transmission of power from one point to another, by means of an air-pump. "At this time Papin's interest in air pumps and steam pressure merged to provide an innovative solution to the widespread need for raising water. He considered first a piston ballistic pump using gunpowder, the idea for which he had earlier discussed with Huygens but claimed as his own (in a letter of 6 March 1704 to Leibniz). Papin met the problem of a 20 percent residue of elastic air remaining in the chamber after combustion by substituting steam for gunpowder. In 1690 he published an account of a single cylinder engine in which water was both boiled and condensed in a tube beneath a piston (the offered item). Athmospheric pressure forced the piston down again. While not immediately practical in actual operation, the piston arrangement had the advantage, Papin noted, of requiring steam at pressure low enough to be accommodated by vessels artisans of the time could make." (DSB). Thomas Newcomen followed this construction principle and built the machinery with great success. - Poggendorff II:355.The other papers contained in the offered volume:Leibniz: 1.

        Essex's innocency and honour vindicated, or, Murther, subornation, perjury, and oppression justly charg'd on the murtherers of that noble lord and true patriot, Arthur (late) Earl of Essex: in a letter to a friend

      London : Printed for the autho, 1690-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. 4to. 21 cm. 1/2 calf binding. Front cover nearly detached. [8], 62 p.Folding engraved frontispiece of the crime scene, showing where the body lay. An early English book on forensics, layered in politics and the struggle between parliament and king. Earl Arthur Capel Essex (1631-1683) was held in the Tower of London for suspicion of being involved in the 1682 Rye House plot against King Charles II. Essex, a longstanding minister in the royal court, was anti-Catholic in sentiment, but apparently not involved in this scheme. Before his trial, he was found with his throat slit (from ear to ear) and his death was declared a suicide. His death was swept up in the tumultuous politics of the time of troubles, with Anti-Catholic forces attempting to cast the death as murder and the King's proclaiming it as a suicide. In this book, Laurence Braddon, a Whig attorney, provided physical evidence to support the conclusion that Capel was murdered. Braddon was subsequently tried and imprisoned in the Tower of London until the William and Mary took control in 1688. (For an in depth look at the murder of Essex, see “Francis F.

        Several Essays in Political Arithmetick: the titles of which follow in the ensuing pages.London: Robert Clavel and Henry Mortlock, 1699. First edition.

      Very rare complete copy of this collection of Petty's essays on demography and economics, "including the influential <i>Political Arithmetick</i> (first published 1690), a major comparative study of the wealth and economic policies of England and her rivals France and Holland. This was the first of Petty's works to contain in its title the phrase he had coined to describe the application of statistics to economic theory and policy. Petty was the first to employ numerical evaluation in economics, and his work provided the decisive impulse toward econometrics and the general application of statistics" (Norman).<br/><br/> &#10087;Garrison-Morton 1688; Norman 1688 (lacking several of the part-titles). <br/><br/> After studying French, mathematics, astronomy and navigation at Caen, several years in the Royal Navy, and during the Civil Wars several more years of study, particularly medicine, at Utrecht, Petty (1623-87) returned to England in 1647, got his doctor's degree in medicine, and became Professor of Anatomy at Oxford in 1650, where he made the acquaintance of John Graunt. In 1652 he was appointed physician to the army in Ireland, and from 1655 to 1656 he undertook a survey of Ireland, called the 'down survey,' as a basis for the distribution of forfeited lands to army officers and soldiers. Petty himself also took over a great deal of land, which was to make him a very wealthy man. Returning to England in 1659, he joined a group of natural scientists who met at Gresham College and eventually founded the Royal Society in 1662. After the Restoration he was knighted and appointed Surveyor-General of Ireland. <br/><br/> "What Petty wrote, about both Ireland and England, blended exact statistical information with fanciful projections. True to his belief in the empirical method, learned on the continent early in the 1640s, he aimed to end idle speculation by expressing all in 'number, weight and measure'. This statistical precision certainly added to the novelty and authority of <i>The Political Arithmetic and Anatomy of Ireland</i>. The precision owed much to his access to the cadastral data which had been collected under his own auspices during the down survey, and later when poll and hearth taxes were levied in Ireland and as bills of mortality enumerated and classified the dead both in London and Dublin...<br/><br/> "Petty did not confine his advice and reflections to Ireland. In England, he concerned himself with agriculture, industry, technology, population, architecture, and medicine. He also interested himself in the demography of London, now more clearly revealed in the weekly bills of mortality. In association with John Graunt he analysed this material and used it to predict future trends. During the 1680s these analytical techniques were applied to Dublin. Petty examined the wealth, potential and actual, of England. He saw labour as the key to increased national prosperity. Like other commentators he sought lessons from the evident successes of the United Provinces and France under Colbert. The novelty in Petty's approach was to quantify... by abstracting numbers and using these as the basis of calculation, whether of profit and loss in his own Irish ironworks or English trades and industries, he constructed the method known as political arithmetic which was widely copied in the later seventeenth century (and beyond). In addition, by isolating such issues as the velocity of circulation, the difference between the natural and market price of a commodity, and the theory of economic surplus, he established important themes and methods for classical economists" (ODNB). <br/><br/> The essays included in this volume, each of which have a separate dated title page, are: <i>An essay concerning the multiplication of mankind</i> (1698); <i>Further observations upon the Dublin bills</i> (1698); <i>Two essays in political arithmetic</i> (1699); <i>Observations upon the cities of London and Rome</i> (1699); <i>Five essays in political arithmetic</i> (1699); <i>Political arithmetick, or a discourse concerning the extent and value of lands</i> (1699). <i>Five essays</i> has a French title page facing the English one, the text being printed in French on versos and English on rectos, with facing pages bearing duplicate pagination. It comprises: I. <i>Objections from the city of Rey in Persia, and from Mons. Auzout, against two former essays, answered, and that London hath as many people as Paris, Rome and Rouen put together. II. A comparison between London and Paris in 14 particulars. III. Proofs that at London, within its 134 parishes named in the Bills of mortality, there live about 696 thousand people. IV. An estimate of the people in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Venice, Rome, Dublin, Bristol and Rouen. V. Concerning Holland and the rest of the seven United Provinces.</i> Garrison-Morton 1688; Keynes Petty 46; Norman 1688; Wing P-1937; ESTC R22460.. 8vo (184 x 112 mm), pp. [iv], [1-4], 5-103, [2], 105-139 (each page number in this series repeated, with English and French on opposite pages), [140-160], 161-276.

        FIGURES DE LA PASSION D. N. S. JESUS CHRIST

      Augsburg: Johann Ulrich Kraus, 1690. Hardcover. Passion Engravings on a Small Scale, but with Memorable Results. 152 x 203 mm (6 x 8"). [38] leaves. Very fine contemporary mottled calf, covers with gilt scallop and palmette border, large central lozenge composed of fleuron and coronet tools, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central floral spray and acorn cornerpieces, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH ENGRAVED TITLE AND 37 PLATES BY JOHANN ULRICH KRAUS AFTER SÉBASTIEN LE CLERC, all mounted within engraved decorative frames on thick paper. A little wear to joints, boards splaying slightly, leather with a touch of pitting (as always with mottled calf), isolated mild stains or foxing to the generous margins, one short closed marginal tear, but AN EXTREMELY PLEASING CONTEMPORARY COPY, the engravings quite clean, fresh, and richly impressed, and the binding with nothing approaching a significant condition issue. This is a fine copy, in an especially appealing binding, of the complete series of Le Clerc&#39;s dramatic "Passion of Christ," first printed in Paris in 1692 and here reproduced by a leading Augsburg engraver. A few years after the Paris edition appeared, our Johann Ulrich Kraus (1645-1719) re-engraved the plates and mounted them on notably thick paper within specially engraved thick frames. Despite the small size of the engravings (they measure about 65 x 95 mm., not counting the frames), the result is impressive, the composition, detail, and sophisticated use of light all being notable. The son of a goldsmith, Le Clerc (1637-1714) was one of the foremost engravers of his era. He studied with Callot--whose influence is visible here--and became a professor of perspective at the Parisian Academy of Painting. His skill at creating depth in space is noteworthy in general and evident here. His style is measured and classicizing, harking back to the Renaissance and looking forward to French painters like David. The story of the last days of Christ is by its nature dramatic, and so are a number of the scenes here, such as Christ&#39;s prayer to have the cup of sacrifice taken from him. Our artist is most in his element, however, when creating scenes like the Last Supper, to which he gives centrality and monumentality. This seems to be quite a rare work in any form, both in the marketplace and in institutions.

On the other hand, the work to which he put his own name alone, Orphée, was hissed at its first performances. However, the act set in the underworld still merits attention for the prominence it gives to accompanied recitative, one of the most original features of the late 17th-century French operatic repertory."

        Isola di Corsica

      Venice: Vincenzo Coronelli, 1690. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 23.75" x 17.75". This decorative map of Corsica features a detailed depiction of the island with elaborate embellishments. Working circa 1696, Coronelli has drawn the coastlines in exacting detail, surrounding them with dark shading that makes the island seem to pop off the page. Coastal rivers, inlets, ports, towns, villages, and smaller islands are labeled in Italian, and mountains and trees are depicted pictorially. In the corners of the map, elegant cartouches attest to the island&#39;s beauty. Most elaborate is the title cartouche in the upper left, a large scroll decorated with flowers upon which two men and a dog loll. In the upper right, a draped fabric that bears the map&#39;s scales is dressed with two angels, one holding the cross; a coat of arms; and exquisite tassels and plumage. In the lower left, vines encircle a wreath containing the cross of the Genoa flag, and in the lower right, a similar design holds the silhouette that adorns the Corsican flag. The elegant semi-circular Latin text labeling the Mediterranean brings the map&#39;s design into harmony---as was characteristic of Coronelli&#39;s work, the map is labeled in both Italian and Latin. It appeared in Coronelli&#39;s rare "Atlante Veneto," one of the most decorative and ornate atlases of the 17th century. The map is in excellent condition with no chips or tears and full margins. Crisp, dark impression on thick paper. Italian text on verso. Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718) was a Franciscan priest and renowned mathematician and cartographer. He was appointed official Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic in 1685 and founded the world&#39;s earliest geographic society, L&#39;Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti. He was known best for his globes, which he made for prominent rulers such as Louis XIV and the Duke of Parma. This almost untouched edition of Coronelli&#39;s map is a beautiful example of his work.
