        Franconiae Nova Descriptio.

      Artist: Janssonius/ Pitt Moses Johann ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1690 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Centerfold and tear on left side perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 41,5 x 53; - description: Map shows Franconia in Germany with 3 decorative cartouches, ! Title cartouche, 1 heraldic cartouche and a miles index.; - vita of the artist: "Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

        Christ of Caprarola. Original Engraving, After Carraci.

      c1665-1690.. Extremely rare.. 17 x 13.5 cm.. Fine impression, beautiful original engraving, with large margins and fine, detailed lines. Contemporary ink notes on verso, no affect at all. Loose, without matting. Body of Christ lying on the ground, his head resting on the Vrigin, supported by another Mary; with St. John holding ChristÕs left hand and displaying its wound to St. Mary Magdalene. Stunning and very rare. Suitable for framing. Lairesse (1641-1711), born in Liege, second son of painter Renier. Known for a facial deformity (some will state syphilis), RembrandtÕs portrait of Gerard at age 25, is a famous one. He was influenced by Rembrandt, and later French neo-classical. In 1690, he lost his sight and concentrated on art theory. A draughtsman, theatrical designer, writer, and theoretician, he is best known as the celebrated Dutch painter in the years to follow RembrandtÕs death. Lairesse shows more detail and finer lines than Carracci in this beautiful scene, which is in reverse of CarracciÕs original. We attribute this work to Lairesse by the original auction purchase of this print over 20 years ago. Though, we find no other copies of this print in any institutions, reference citations, or for sale at time of description. It appears to be extremely rare.

        Idea dell'Universo

      1690. - BELLA COLORITURA ANTICA - Incisione in rame, due fogli ancora da unire, finemente colorati a mano, in perfetto stato di conservazione. L'Atlante Veneto contiene questo doppio foglio in cui è rappresentata una mappa con l'«Idea dell'Universo»: essa richiama le immagini tolemaiche poste ad inizio delle edizioni scolastiche della Divina commedia, con gli Inferi al centro della Terra, situata a sua volta al centro di tutto. Poche pagine più avanti Coronelli illustra i quattro «sistemi» dei quali si discuteva accesamente ai suoi tempi, quelli di Copernico, Descartes, e Ticone oltre ovviamente al più antico, di Tolomeo. Se l'«Idea dell'Universo» sembra tranquillizzare il lettore (ed il censore) nella sua maestosa presentazione ad inizio dell'opera, le successive immagini dedicate alle eresie della modernità completano il discorso, lasciandolo in sospeso nel giudizio di chi osserva e studia. Coronelli non si pronuncia, offre semplicemente delle ipotesi, ma nello stesso tempo avverte che l'«Idea dell'Universo» dell'apertura non riassume tutto quello che si sa al momento. Meraviglioso esemplare di questa carta astronomica. - FINE OLD COLOUR - Decorative example of Coronelli's 2-sheet Cosmographical Chart, published in Venice. Magnificent celestial chart representing the major astronomical and astrological theories from classical times to the end of the 17th century. The central engraving is a large celestial planisphere incorporating the rotations of the planets and signs of the zodiac, which is surrounded by 4 blowing windheads and 5 planetary diagrams. The subjects include a perpetual calendar, the zodiac, the parts of the body dominated by each zodiac sign, the theories of eclipses and a cross-section of the Earth including the various circles of Hell according to Dante's Divine Comedy. The border is comprised of 28 smaller diagrams ranging from illustrations of solar and lunar eclipses and terrestrial maps to diagrams of astrological aspects and a chart indicating which zodiacal signs govern the various parts of the body. As a whole the engraving provides a spectacular visual compendium of astronomical and celestial theories.

        MANVAL DE LOS SANTOS SACRAMENTOS EN EL IDIOMA DE MICHUACAN...[POR] IUAN MARTINEZ ARAVJO

      Mexico: Dona Maria de Benavides, viuda de Juan de Ribera, 1690. [7],93,[1] leaves. Small quarto. Contemporary limp vellum, lacking ties. Some staining. Text almost loose in binding, but holding, minor foxing, fore-edge margin of one leaf repaired. Overall, a good plus copy of a truly rare book. This is the first work of Catholic liturgy and ritual written and printed in the Tarascan language. It is from the pen of Juan Martinez Araujo, a secular priest who was an ecclesiastical visitor "in the mountains of the TIERRA CALIENTE of [Michoacan], and for thirty years a priest in Punguarehuato and the parish of Archangel S. Miguel de Tlazazalca." The rarity of this work has been noted for more than a century: LeClerc, writing in 1870, called it "extremement rare," and Sabin wrote, "not mentioned in Brunet, Rich, Brockhaus, or Stevens." In the twentieth century, Maggs Brothers, in their legendary series of catalogues, BIBLIOTHECA AMERICANA, failed to list a copy in any of the nine volumes of rarities for sale. Tarascan is the principal native language of the Mexican province of Michoacan, in the western region of the country. Father Gilberti's ARTE (Mexico, 1558) was the first book printed in Tarascan; between the publication of that work and this there followed a handful (i.e. fewer than a dozen) of other books in Tarascan. They were grammars, dictionaries, and doctrinal works, this being the first liturgical work printed for the Indians and their missionaries. The volume contains all of the sacraments from baptism to extreme unction, various blessings, words and acts of comfort for the sick and dying, an explanation of the Bull of the Holy Crusade, a confessionary, the act of exorcism of the bewitched, notes on extirpation of superstitions and idolatries, and a closing advisory on superstitions. A true rarity of early Mexican printing. MEDINA (MEXICO) 1476. GARCIA ICAZBALCETA, LENGUAS 85. VINAZA 224. ANDRADE 932. HARPER, AMERICANA IBERICA 141. AYER, TARASCAN 10. SABIN 44956.

        Romani Imperii qua Oriens est descriptio Geographica?

      Artist: Rossi Giacomo Giovanni ca ; issued in: Rome; date: ca1690 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Stain right corner; - size (in cm): 39 x 52,5; - description: Map depicts the eastern part of the Roman Empire with Italy, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Armenia, Cyprus, Palestina and Egypt.In its approximately 12 centuries of existence, Roman civilization shifted from a monarchy to a classical republic and then to an increasingly autocratic empire. Through conquest and assimilation, it came to dominate Southern and Western Europe, Asia Minor, North Africa, and parts of Northern and Eastern Europe. Rome was preponderant throughout the Mediterranean region and was one of the most powerful entities of the ancient world. It is often grouped into classical antiquity together with ancient Greece, and their similar cultures and societies are known as the Greco-Roman world.Giovanni Giacomo De' Rossi was the son of the founder of the most important and active printing press of the 17th century in Rome. Begun in 1633 by his father Giuseppe (1570-1639), the press passed firstly to Giacomo and to his brother Giandomenico (1619-1653), and then later to Lorenzo Filippo (1682-?); in 1738 it became the Calcografia Camerale, from 1870 until 1945 the Regia Calcografica, and today it is known as the Calcografia Nazionale. Here are conserved, amongst many others, the plates of Giambattista Piranesi (1720-1778). Giacomo De' Rossi was the most involved of all the various family members who ran the press, and he worked between 1638 and 1691, and was to take the company to the height of its success.; - vita of the artist: Giovanni Giacomo De' Rossi was the son of the founder of the most important and active printing press of the 17th century in Rome.

        Isle Corso del Fiume Rodano dalle sue Fonti sino al Mare Col Tratto Dell Alpi.

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo (d) ; issued in: Modena; date: (d)1690 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 43 x 57; - description: Map shows the Provence; - vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

      Amsterdam, Pieter Blaeu, and Joan Blaeu 1690 - (engraved titlepage) n.p., (engraved titlepage) n.p. Contemporary Tortoiseshell binding with 2 silver clasps and 4 silver hinges, gilt-edged and gauffred text block, 8° (Some small pieces chipped off the binding. Dutch church book in the French language containing the Geneva version of the New Testament, followed by the Psalms -with musical notation- of Clement Marot en Theodorus Beza, and the Forms. Attractive binding bound in black with ochre coloured flamed tortoiseshell with silver double clasp and 4 hinges. The clasps have straight catches but both the hasps and joints on the spine have an identically cut out pattern. The use of tortoiseshell as a book binding material became populair in the 17th and 18th century and was mostly used for binding religious texts, small Bibles, prayer books, and gift books for the wealthy middle class. The material came from exotic marine turtles and was valued due to its beauty, shine and rarity. -the name tortoiseshell can therefore be misleading because the material has nothing to do with land tortoises-. Fewer than 4 percent of the luxury bindings made in the Netherlands in the 18th century was covered in materials other than leather and vellum. These bindings were regarded as richer and were more expensive. This is considered even more for tortoise shells since the shells were not imported in large amounts, due to this the material remained expensive and only available for the rich.)(gegraveerde titelpagina) z.p., (gegraveerde titelpagina) z.p.

Het gebruik van het schild van de schildpad als bindmateriaal werd populair in de 17e en 18e eeuw en werd voornamelijk gebruikt voor het binden van religieuze geschriften, kleine Bijbels, gebedenboeken en geschenkboeken voor de gegoede burgerij. Het materiaal werd verkregen van uitheemse zeeschildpadden en was geliefd vanwege het uiterlijk, de glans, en de zeldzaamheid. Minder dan 4 procent van de luxere banden die in Nederland werden gebonden in de 18e eeuw werd in ander materiaal dan leer en perkament gebonden. Deze banden werden gezien als luxer en waren duurder.

      Amsterdam: Justus Danckerts [circa ]. 1690 - Copper engraving with original colour in outline (Very Good, slightly age-toned, white margins slightly dusty and stained with small repaired tears, some pin-size holes in the white margins in the folds, in the upper right corner marked with a number), 46 x 52 cm (18.1 x 20.5 inches). This attractive map was produced during the era of the Great Turkish War (1683-1699), an epic contest between Turkey and the Austrian Habsburg Empire for domination of South Central Europe. It shows Hungary and embraces the area between Vienna in Austria, Ptuj in Slovenia, Slavonia in Croatia, Belgrade in Serbia, Romania nad Slovakia. Danckerts’s issue of the map was perfectly timed to coincide with the Great Turkish War (1683 - 1699), one of the turning points in European history. In essence, this lengthy conflict hailed the gradual decline of the Ottoman Empire at the lands of the European Christian powers. That being said, the war commenced with a stunning scare for the Europeans. In 1683, an Ottoman army broke out of Hungary to besiege Vienna, the Habsburg capital. This sent shockwaves throughout Europe, and only the intervention of Poland’s King Jan Sobieski saved the city. In 1684, the region’s main Christian powers formed the Holy League, marking the first time that they had all joined forces to fight to Ottomans. The Turks were also caught off-guard by recent changes in European military tactics, as their massive armies had great difficulty contending the Austrians’ new and highly mobile artillery units. This quickly turned the tables, as the Allies inflicted a succession of crushing defeats upon the Ottomans. The Second Battle of Mohács (1687) restored virtually all of Hungary to the Habsburgs. The decisive showdown of the war occurred at the Battle of Zenta (1697) in Serbia, whereby an Allied force under Prince Eugene of Savoy crushed the main army of the Ottoman Sultan Mustafa II. The Ottomans sued for peace and the war was concluded by the Treaty of Karlowitz (1699). Austria gained all of Hungary, many areas in the Balkans and Transylvania. The war was highly consequential in that is signaled the progressive decline of the Ottoman Empire. However, it would not be long before war between the European-Turkish wars were to resume. The Danckerts Company of Mapmakers - Justus Danckerts (1635-1701) was the most prominent member of the Danckerts family, which for almost a century presided over one of the leading Dutch map houses. The firm was founded around 1633 by Cornelis Danckerts the Elder (1603-56), who is listed that in Amsterdam municipal records as a ‘Papeiere const en Caerten verkooper’. Following Cornelis the Elder’s death, the firm was taken over by his eldest son, Danker Danckerts, and from around 1660, from their shop on the Kalverstraat, they began producing composite atlases, featuring many original maps engraved on premises. From, 1666, the enterprise was led by Justus Danckerts, Danker’s younger brother. A great vacuum developed in the Dutch mapmaking industry upon the demise of the Blaeu firm in 1672 and the progressive decline of the family business of the late Jan Jansson. The Danckerts workshop moved aggressively to fill the void and, by 1680, along with the firm of Frederik de Wit, they had become the leading map publishers in the Netherlands. Over the next 30 years, the Danckerts firm’s maps and composite atlases were amongst the best selling cartographic products in the world, and were favoured for their tasteful design and clean engraving. In addition to atlas maps, the Danckerts company was also known for grand wall maps, all of which are today very rare. Following Justus’s death in 1701, the firm was lead by his son, Theodorus Danckerts (1663-1727), whereupon it enjoyed several more prosperous years. However, in the face of stiff competition from both Parisian mapmakers and the Mortier firm of Amsterdam, the Danckerts enterprise was downsized in 1713 and finally liquidated in 1727. Many of the Danckerts plates were
