Philipp Jacob Spener (1635-1705), im Elsaß geboren und aufgewachsen, Begründer des Pietismus, studierte an der Straßburger Universität Philosophie, Geschichte und Theologie. Er promovierte bereits mit 18 mit einer gegen Thomas Hobbs gerichteten Disputation, studierte dann in Basel und Genf, wurde Prediger in Straßburg und später nach Frankfurt am Main berufen; 1691-94 als Propst und Konsistorialrat in Berlin tätig, ab 1694 an der Gründung der Universität Halle an der Halle maßgeblich beteiligt. In seinen theologischen Schriften prangerte er nicht nur die Mißstände innerhalb der Kirche an, sondern schlug auch ein Reformprogramm für die evangelische Kirche vor. Spener beklagt immer wieder in seinen Aufsehen erregenden Schriften den Mangel an wahrem, lebendigem Glauben, plädierte für Judenbekehrung und Aufhebung der katholischen Kirche. Neben seiner vielfäligen theologischen Arbeit beschäftigte er sich mit Geschichte und Heraldik und gilt heute durch das vorliegende Werk als wissenschaftlicher Begründer der Heraldik. In seinen beiden wahrlich umfassenden Werken stellt er nicht nur anhand von ca 280 Wappen den europäischen Adel nahezu vollständig vor. Im Text von Band II befasst er sich mit den Ursprügen und den Systemen der Wappen anhand der ca. 1780 gestochenen Beispielen auf den Tafeln. Zu Spener siehe: ADB 35, 104ff; Wikipedia.

        America Settentrionale Colle Nuove Scoperte fin all' anno 1688

      Venice: V. M. Coronelli, [1690, or later]. Copper-engraved map, on two joined sheets, in excellent condition. 24 x 35 inches. 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 encyclopedia 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 this era of European expansion evinces 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 a 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. "Although continuing serious errors such as depicting California as an island and his incorrect drawing of the Mississippi River, Coronelli's career marked a step forward through the slow but steady recording of the explorations that brought Texas into the limelight of European politics" (Martin & Martin).

        [MANUSCRIPT MEMOIR OF M. LA VALLIER DES ROCHES, FRENCH NAVAL OFFICER, SPANNING THIRTY YEARS OF FRENCH INVOLVEMENT IN THE NEAR EAST, AFRICA, AND THE AMERICAS]

      [Np. ca. 1690].. 127pp. numbered in contemporary manuscript, plus two pen-and-ink drawings, one of Carthagena and the other a map, "Plan de Ste. Marthe." Folio. Gathered signatures. Internally bright and clean. Near fine. In a half morocco and cloth box. A remarkable and extensive memoir composed by the career French naval officer, M. La Vallier des Roches, spanning nearly three decades of service in the Near East, Africa, and the Americas. From the papers of Michel Bégon (1638-1710). Bégon was a French civil servant and colonial administrator who served for a while in Canada, and then in the Caribbean at Martinique. In the 1680s he became intendent at Santo Domingo, and was later sent to Martinique for official duties. Later he was the intendent of the port of La Rochelle and gathered a great deal of intelligence for the French Crown. Des Roches' narrative is divided into seven main sections: the march of six thousand French soldiers to Hungary before the battle of St. Gothard; the seizure of the Dutch slave colony of Gorée off the African coast in 1678; an account of the taking of Tobago later in 1678; the disaster suffered by the French fleet under d'Estrées on its way to attack Curacao in August of 1678; a 1682 naval reconnaissance voyage along the coast of Central America; a French demonstration of force off the coast of Copenhagen in 1683; and Tourville's defeat of the English and Dutch fleets off Beachy Head in 1690. Des Roches' narrative is rich in specific detail, sometimes at the expense of style. Excerpts from each section follow below (in English translation): 1) From the march to Hungary: "During the different [?] between the Pope and the King, the Kingdom of Hungary which for several years has rested from the fatigues of a furious war which overwhelmed it, began anew to feel itself torn asunder by the Ottoman armies, and to be reduced to having these vast and fertile lands serve only as theater for playing bloody tragedies. This numerous army, at the head of which the grand Seigneur had placed his first Vizir, would without a doubt have subdued the rest of this Kingdom if the Emperor hadn't asked for help from his allies, that is, the Electors and other Christian Princes. The King, who has no greater passion than helping his brothers, and all those who have need of his forces, particularly when it lies in the interests of the Religion, at the first demand from the Emperor provided 6000 men from the best troops of his Kingdom: 4000 infantry and 2000 horse, which troops were paid by his majesty. The companies of light horse already in Italy were ordered to leave and to pass into Hungary to go to the aid of this pitiful realm." 2) From the taking of Gorée: "L'Isle de Gorée est terre d'affrique...; arrived Sunday last of Oct.; squadron carried Dutch colors; fired upon; moored; same evening armed sloops detached; saluted by enemy but continued approaching land; enemy abandoned lower fort; retired to upper; next day Mon. 1 Nov. vice admiral requested surrender; gov. replied saying he had a good fort; Sr. de Combe, Ingenieur, was envoy; attacked planned; participants listed; cannonade followed by surrender; garrison of 120 men taken prison; Tues. forts razed; armaments listed incl. 40 black slaves." 3) From the taking of Tobago: "...arrived 6 Dec.; d'Estrées sent troops ashore; Blenag & Grancey share command by land & sea; camp; placing cannon, cutting road through woods; took some prisoners; several French came to help; request for surrender includes threats against Gorée prisoners if French in fort are harmed; 'renegade' French for Prince of Orange; preparations continue; Sunday midday 14 cannon volleys; a bomb in their powder magazine; vice admiral immediately to fort to accept surrender; such good care given to wounded that others surrender easily; 650 prisoners as well as fort; Precieux, 56, retaken with three others; one a 52; a frigate of 8 and 200 ton flustre, 10; fort no less well armed; sang Te Deum; blew up fort." 4) From the journey to Curacao: "...I note that we got lost on the way to the third...called Corosol [Curacao]...we left St. Christophe 6th May; squadron joined by several smaller craft from St. Dominique, by order of the king, carrying 13 or 14 hundred men, inhabitants, buccaneers, filibusters; northeasterly wind favorable...four days to the south & southwest seeking favorable winds favorable to reconnoitre Orchilla & seek Corosol in the same longitude; the plan being prudently enough formed seemed to have only the happiest consequences; nevertheless things were otherwise: currents of which we knew not the force drove us westward upon a Rock unknown to us & unmarked in the charts...weather had been nice but as soon as we touched the wind increased greatly, driving the sea before it, both of which contributed to the loss of several boats." 5) From the reconnaissance of the Central American Coast: "Took on stores & water, left Martinique 15 July intending to go by way of Grenada but had an easterly wind so steered westward with a following wind; 24th made St. Martha [represented by one of the maps], called 'Tierra Nivadas' which in our language means mountains of snow...Inhabitants at its feet & along part of its coast by a small people who could be called pygmies; they live apart from other peoples; they flee & hide; in time of great heat they live higher up the mountain; they eat ouycou, magnoc; religion unknown...2d August left Portobello; reconnoitred the Isles des catives which number 50, uninhabited, & Roatan, inhabited only by corsairs, went to reconnoitre the Isle despins, Cap St. Nicolas, Cap St. Antoine, west of Cuba. 3 Sept. passed Cayenne; 6th, Havana, rendezvous of the galleons as well as for all the West Indies...." 6) From the naval demonstration off Copenhagen: "10th, north wind, prepared for departure; wind southerly, stayed where they were. 11th, news by a letter intercepted that the Swedish army would emerge; 14th detained Swedish frigate flying so large a flag it looks as though it were made expressly to be recognized, asked questions about Swedish dispositions; following this ingenuous confession the frigates saluted the admiral who did not return it and the frigates who did...ordered back to France, giving joy to all but one who prefers the pay of extended tours to returning to his family." 7) From Tourville's defeat of the English and Dutch off Beachy Head: "4th found the English fleet to the NE but they have the wind; French moored 5th, wind SW the French prepared to attack; wind veers SE the English try to flee at which they succeed knowing better the coastal waters, wind NE, both fleets moored 4 leagues apart for the night; the 6th, NE breezes, form line of battle, a new way of signaling...Combat: the 10th, blue squadron rejoins as avant garde; enemy approaches...the Dutch (25 ships of which the smallest carried 50 cannon); French line of battle extended SE-NW; violent battle...solid bravery of M. de St. Cler second the Precieux & the offices, I made every effort to imitate their example until I was wounded toward the end; the Dutch were so busy firing at us that they let 6 of our ships gain the wind, which all did their duty well; the enemy could do no more & fled...." A unique record of a French soldier, with major New World interest.

      De Wit Amsterdam:: De Wit,. c. 1690.. A most attractive double hemisphere map of the world, with smaller polar insets. Handsomely decorated with allegorical vignettes of the four seasons in the border. The first edition of the map is recorded as Shirley 451- he records the 2nd state adding a border & some cherubs to the plate as well as Nova Guinea and Quiri Regio on the left hand hemisphere. This edition, (Shirley 499) is further altered in that California as an island has a pointed tip (instead of a flat top), and by the insertion ot some of the Great Lakes instead of the single open-ended inland sea shown previously. De Wit was granted privilege in 1688, and included a line to that effect under the title. Australia is illustrated post-Tasman, showing the tip of Tasmania & Cape York Peninsula, the full West coast of Australia. The bottom of Cape Horn is the only geographical feature on the Antarctic polar projection. Copper engraving with old color refreshed. Size: 48 x 57 cm. (19 x 22½ in.)

Small parts of the spine as well as the edges are professionally restored. No title on the spine. This apart, it is a nice and presentable binding. Owner's stamp on the flyleaf and the inside of the back cover. The title page and the text pages are with minor foxing. The engravings are almost all nice and clean. A few with minor browning. Two of the engravings with marginal wormholes.. Brunet I, 758. Complete according to Brunet which states 52 sheets. Also according to Brunet, the binding was done prior to the insertion of the sheets, explaining the fact that this binding leaves space for insertion of further sheets.** Brunet also recommends this work for the many beautiful engravings.*** Magnificent work by the engraver Pietro Santo Bartoli (1635-1700) depicting antique Roman triumphal archs. At first a painter, Bartoli later devoted his entire energy to engraving ancient Roman monuments and paintings. He worked closely with the art historian Gian Pietro Bellori (1613-1696), who produced his famous 'The Lives of the Artists', a biography of 17th century artists. Incidentally, they both worked as antiquarians for Queen Christina of Sweden in her exile in Rome

        Terre Artiche Descritte dal P.M. Coronelli M.C. Cosmografo della Sereniss. Republica di Venetia

      Venice:. Ca. 1690.. Fine uncolored copper engraved map of the Arctic, from Coronelli's atlas 'Atlante Veneto'. Visually quite striking, with the central cartouche surrounded by glaciers and the title cartouche surrounded by puffy clouds and blowing cherubs. In contrast to the common practice of the day, Coronelli was fastidious in only plotting what had been discovered, with notations citing the particular voyages or explorer. Coronelli was a Venetian mapmaker who served as ‘Map-maker Royal’ to Louis XIV from 1681 to 1683, during which time he had access to the latest French manuscript records, information from which he incorporated into his printed maps. He became the Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice in 1685. Depicted here, starting in the west, are: 'Mare di Hudson', 'Baia di Baffins', 'The New Bretagne', 'Groenlandia', 'La Spitzberga', 'Terra di Wiches', 'Nuova Zemla' and areas of northern Tartaria. With a great degree of detail, including small villages, cities, rivers, mountains, bays, and small islands. Image size: 23 3/4 x 18". Paper size: 27 1/8 x 19 1/4". Very good condition.Moreland & Bannister p.73.

        Le Globe Terrestre Representé En Deux Plans-Hemispheres Et En Diverses Autres Figures

      Paris: Jean-Baptiste Nolin, [after 1690]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. 18 7/8 x 24 5/8 inches. A very beautiful and finely engraved world map, principally devised by one of the period's greatest cartographers This very fine map is the result of the synergy of the talents of Coronelli and his French colleague Tralage, popularly known as the Sieur de Tillemont. It principally depicts the world in a bi- hemispheric projection, and largely follows the geography represented on Coronelli's celebrated globe of 1688. California is shown to be an island, and in the enigmatic void that lies to the northwest is the 'Strait of Anian' that supposedly forms the western terminus of a presumed Northwest Passage. Beyond the strait, just to the northeast of Japan is the mysterious "Terre de Jessu," that supposedly represents Hokkaido. Much further south, the loosely-defined area that is now known as New Guinea is labelled as the "Terre de Quir," noting on the map that it was discovered in 1606 by the Spanish explorer Ferdinand de Quir. The only major addition here to Coronelli's established geography is the appearance of the Solomon Islands.Surrounding these principal hemispheres are eight diverse hemispheric projections of the world, evincing a playful fascination with mathematics and perspective that anticipated the Enlightenment of the next century. Adorning the two upper corners of the map are a pair of hemispheres capturing the world from an oblique perspective, one centered on Paris, and the other from its diametrically opposite position in the antipodes. Also, in the upper portion of the map, is a pair of hemispheres capturing the world in an ovoid projection, and resting in the spaces in between the two main hemispheres are a pair of projections depicting the world from a perspective centered at the poles. In the lower left corner, the entire world is captured on a projection centered at the North Pole. Most strikingly, in the lower right corner the world is captured in a cordiform, or heart-shaped projection, which since it was first devised during the Renaissance was considered an iconological symbol of various humanist values.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. The present map is the result of the lucrative partnership Coronelli formed in the late 1680s with the prominent Paris cartographer Jean-Baptiste Nolin, who printed editions of Coronelli's maps that flourished on the French market. Coronelli published two atlases, the Atlante Veneto (Venice, 1691) and the Isolario (1696-98), and compiled the first encyclopedia to be arranged alphabetically.This map was first printed in 1690, and the present map is in the second state, as indicated by its dedication which honors Louis Philippeaux de Ponchartrain, the French minister of Finance.
