Joseph Moxon (1627-1700) was a London dealer and printer, specialising in mathematical books and instruments, a globe maker, amateur in the mechanical arts, hydrographer to Charles II providing maps and charts for royal use, and Fellow of the Royal Society, the first tradesman to be so elected. He produced the first English language dictionary devoted to mathematics. In his Mechanical Exercises he sets out to describe the chief trades of the day with illustrations of machinery, tools, furnaces, locks, plans etc. It is one of the earliest English books to describe and illustrate the tools of various trades and explain their uses. Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part Five, page 241; Christie's, The Haskell Norman Library of Science and Medicine, Part II, page 340, No 687, collating the same as our copy.

        Switserland map - Jaillot.

      La Suisse Divisée en ses Treze Cantons, ses Alliez & ses SujetsKopergravure gedrukt op twee gemonteerde bladen, uitgegeven in 1693 door Hubert Jaillot naar het werk van Nicolas Sanson. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 54 x 75 cm. De kaart is omlijst met stadswapens, de schaal van de kaart wordt in een legenda volgens verschillende maatstaven weergegeven. Na Nicolas Sanson was Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) de belangrijkste Franse cartograaf van de 17e eeuw. Jaillot, van origine een beeldhouwer, raakte geïnteresseerd in geografie door z´n huwelijk met de dochter van Nicolas Berey, een fameuze kaarten kleurder en ging in Parijs een partnerschap aan met de zonen van Sanson. Vanaf ongeveer 1669 hield Jaillot zich bezig met het hergraveren, vergroten en heruitgeven van de kaarten van Sanson in losse edities en in atlas vorm. Hij was succesvol in het opvullen van het gat in de markt dat was ontstaan na de grote brand in 1672, die de Amsterdamse uitgeverij van Blaeu in de as had gelegd.Met het verschuiven van het centrum van de cartografie, verandert ook de informatie op veel kaarten. Terwijl de Nederlandse cartografen zich toelegden op met name het decoratieve element van landkaarten en nogal eens fantasierijk omgingen met onbekende stukken land of zee, zijn kaarten van Franse makelij met name beroemd om hun wetenschappelijke accuratesse en wordt alleen die topografische informatie weergegeven die bij de tijd en correct was.  Prijs: € 975,- (excl. BTW/VAT).

Auflage aus dem Buch nicht ersichtlich 640 Seiten Broschiert Das Buch befindet sich auf Grund der einfachen Bindung, des Alters in einem akzeptablen Zustand - jedoch scheint es vollständig zu sein und die auch wenn es im Buchblockk etwas auseinander bricht, nocht ganz gut gebunden. Aus meiner Sicht in einem altersentsprechend guten Zustand, mit diversen Schäden. Der Papiereinband fehtl, ein Teil liegt lose im Buch. Die Seiten und Ecken der Seiten sind sichtbar berieben, leicht geknittert. Seiten auf Grund des hohen Alters gebräunt, ergraut, verfärbt - aber sauber. Keine Schmierereien, keine Verschmutzung. Auch wenn im Titel was von \"illustriret\" steht, konnte ich im Buch keine Illustrationen finden. Es scheint aber keine Seite zu fehlen, Seiten sind durchnummeriert.

        Vida admirable y prodigiosas virtudes del venerable y apostolico padre Francisco del Castillo de la Compañia de Jesus, natural de Lima, ciudad de Los Reyes en la provincia del Perù.

      Madrid: Antonio Roman 4to. [16] ff., 666 pp., [1] f. (without the portrait).. 1693 Jesuit priest Francisco del Castillo (1615–73) was born in Lima and educated in the Jesuit Colegio Real de San Martín. He entered the Society of Jesus as a novice on the last day of 1631 and took his final vows in early 1650. Even before that, he had begun evangelic work among the black population and notably, as did the Testerian method used in Mexico among the Indian population, he => used drawings in support of his oral delivery. Castillo studied the Chiriguano language (of the Guarani family) in expectation of being a missionary among them, but was sent to Chile as a personal chaplain to the nephew of the Viceroy instead; and upon returning to Lima a few years later he learned that the mission to the Chiriguanos had been abandoned. Then, redoubling his work among the blacks, he learned "Angolan" (i.e., probably Bantu) in order to serve his flock, and he is said to have composed doctrinal works in that language which he left in manuscript. His work among the blacks was especially directed to those ("los desamparados") who had been abandoned, often to helpless homelessness, by their owners. Among other benefactions and with the support of the viceroy, the Conde de Lemos, he constructed a church for them, La Iglesia de los Desamparados; the biography devotes pp. 270 to 278 to describing it and pp. 294 to 312 to describing its statuary. => These pages (and the sheer number of them!) suggest the richness that serious sponsors could set forth even for the humblest in late-17th-century Peru. => The present biography is by a fellow Jesuit who knew Castillo. NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPBE, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library show two U.S. library copies, plus one in Scotland, one in Mexico, six in Spain, and one in Chile. Provenance: On title-page, old inked ownership inscription of a Jesuit colegio. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of button and loop ties, lacking the portrait. Front free endpaper with faint old pencilled notes, rear pastedown missing exposing lining, all edges red. A few short marginal tears or paper flaws, and one lower corner lost touching text (taking a bit of print but not sense); in all, a very good, clean, untattered copy.

        Epistola exhortatoria en orden a que los predicadores evangelicos no priven de la doctrina à las almas en los sermones de fiestas.

      Puebla: Imprenta de Diego Fernandez de Leon 4to (20 cm; 8"). [3] ff., 106 pp.. 1693 [also bound in] Relacion verdadera de todo lo sucedido en el sitio de la Plaza de Mons en los estados de Flandes. En Madrid y por su original en Cadiz, 1691. [2] ff. First printed in the author's Despertador Christiano eucharistico (Madrid, 1690), the Epistola, here reprinted under the license of the bishop of Puebla, is the extracted matter on preaching on feast days. It gives practical advice on composing such sermons, including reasoning to employ against those who would object to things suggested by Barcia — who was an "in demand" preacher, and indeed, preacher to the King — and much other down-to-earth matter for pulpiteers. Certainly the work is not one of the handsomest examples of printing in Puebla, but the title-page is a prime example of the style of the 1690s. It has an ornamental border, both roman and italic type in multiple point sizes, printer's ornaments, and "too much information." There are bibliographical references on pp. 110–15. A special aspect of this copy is found in the binding. The front pastedown and the rear free endpaper and rear pastedown are leaves from the Cadiz, 1691 printing of the two-leaf newsletter Relacion verdadera de todo lo sucedido en el sitio de la Plaza de Mons en los estados de Flandes. By reading the rear free endpaper and the rear pastedown then the front pastedown, one can => read the entire text of this rarity, including the information about the loss via shipwreck off Santo Domingo of a fleet headed to Holland in support of the Spanish forces. => We fail to trace any other copy of this newsletter. Provenance: Near contemporary gift inscription on front cover, "Al Padre Francisco Davila, de la Compania de Jesus. Contemporary limp vellum retaining the ties. One small, pin-type wormhole in all but three leaves, beginning at rear and extending to front. A very good copy.

        Switserland map - Jaillot.

      La Suisse Divisée en ses Treze Cantons, ses Alliez & ses SujetsKopergravure gedrukt op twee gemonteerde bladen, uitgegeven in 1693 door Hubert Jaillot naar het werk van Nicolas Sanson. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 54 x 75 cm. De kaart is omlijst met stadswapens, de schaal van de kaart wordt in een legenda volgens verschillende maatstaven weergegeven. Na Nicolas Sanson was Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712) de belangrijkste Franse cartograaf van de 17e eeuw. Jaillot, van origine een beeldhouwer, raakte geïnteresseerd in geografie door z´n huwelijk met de dochter van Nicolas Berey, een fameuze kaarten kleurder en ging in Parijs een partnerschap aan met de zonen van Sanson. Vanaf ongeveer 1669 hield Jaillot zich bezig met het hergraveren, vergroten en heruitgeven van de kaarten van Sanson in losse edities en in atlas vorm. Hij was succesvol in het opvullen van het gat in de markt dat was ontstaan na de grote brand in 1672, die de Amsterdamse uitgeverij van Blaeu in de as had gelegd.Met het verschuiven van het centrum van de cartografie, verandert ook de informatie op veel kaarten. Terwijl de Nederlandse cartografen zich toelegden op met name het decoratieve element van landkaarten en nogal eens fantasierijk omgingen met onbekende stukken land of zee, zijn kaarten van Franse makelij met name beroemd om hun wetenschappelijke accuratesse en wordt alleen die topografische informatie weergegeven die bij de tijd en correct was.  Prijs: € 975,- (excl. BTW/VAT).

        Epistola exhortatoria en orden a que los predicadores evangelicos no priven de la doctrina à las almas en los sermones de fiestas.

      Puebla: Imprenta de Diego Fernandez de Leon 4to (20 cm; 8"). [3] ff., 106 pp.. 1693 [also bound in] Relacion verdadera de todo lo sucedido en el sitio de la Plaza de Mons en los estados de Flandes. En Madrid y por su original en Cadiz, 1691. [2] ff. First printed in the author's Despertador Christiano eucharistico (Madrid, 1690), the Epistola, here reprinted under the license of the bishop of Puebla, is the extracted matter on preaching on feast days. It gives practical advice on composing such sermons, including reasoning to employ against those who would object to things suggested by Barcia — who was an "in demand" preacher, and indeed, preacher to the King — and much other down-to-earth matter for pulpiteers. Certainly the work is not one of the handsomest examples of printing in Puebla, but the title-page is a prime example of the style of the 1690s. It has an ornamental border, both roman and italic type in multiple point sizes, printer's ornaments, and "too much information." There are bibliographical references on pp. 110?-15. A special aspect of this copy is found in the binding. The front pastedown and the rear free endpaper and rear pastedown are leaves from the Cadiz, 1691 printing of the two-leaf newsletter Relacion verdadera de todo lo sucedido en el sitio de la Plaza de Mons en los estados de Flandes. By reading the rear free endpaper and the rear pastedown then the front pastedown, one can => read the entire text of this rarity, including the information about the loss via shipwreck off Santo Domingo of a fleet headed to Holland in support of the Spanish forces. => We fail to trace any other copy of this newsletter. Provenance: Near contemporary gift inscription on front cover, "Al Padre Francisco Davila, de la Compania de Jesus. Contemporary limp vellum retaining the ties. One small, pin-type wormhole in all but three leaves, beginning at rear and extending to front. A very good copy.

        Carte Particuliere Des Costes De L' Afrique Qui comprend le Pays De Cafres etc.

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1693. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 22.5 x 32.25". This beautiful and rare map of the coast of Africa depicts the southeastern coast from St. Lucia north as far as River Mocambo and Mozambique. Oriented with north to the right, with text in both Latin and French, it covers the coast of the modern day nations of South Africa and Mozambique. Incredibly detailed along the coast, the sea chart labels several kingdoms, bays, rivers, capes and towns as well as coastal features, shoals and depth soundings. An inset in the top right details the region near Sofala and the Island of Inhancato in the Kingdom of Manica near Motapa. Shows beautiful inland detail with topography rendered in profile, including the fortress of Sofala.This ancient region, part of the Kingdom of Monomotapa or Mutapa was first encountered by the Portuguese in the 16th century. The Europeans quickly became interested in the region, which was rich in gold, and soon became associated with the legends of King Solomon's Mines. Most of the gold mines however had been exhausted by the 1700's. This map is in good condition with large margins. Minor wear along the centerfold with some offsetting and foxing at places. Original pressmark is visible. Minor edge wear, including small rips, not affecting printed image. Two sheets joined at center. Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) was a Dutch cartographer, engraver, and printseller who worked in Amsterdam. He used advanced Dutch printing methods to produce high quality editions of contemporary French maps by cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. His greatest feat was the nautical atlas "Le Neptune Francois" or "Suite de Neptune Francois", considered to contain the most beautiful examples of cartographic art. Most of the charts from the atlas were based on earlier manuscripts by the Portuguese, who were the first explorers of the African coast. This chart is a beautiful example of one of those charts.

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1693. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 21.5 x 30". This beautiful sea chart of the NW coast of Africa covers from the Senegal River to Palmares (close to modern day Conakry in Guinea). Oriented with north to the left, it includes the whole or parts of the coasts of the modern day nations of Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau and Guinea. The sea chart offers striking detail along the coast noting towns, rivers, islands and coastal features including banks and depth soundings. An inset of the Island of Goree (located near Cape Verde) is included with beautifully detailed interior notes Fort Nassau and Fort Orange. At the time, the Island was used as a base for the purchase of slaves from the chiefdoms on the mainland by the Atlantic slave traders. The map is in good condition with large margins. Minor wear along the centerfold with some offsetting and foxing at places. Original pressmark is visible. Minor edge wear with top left corner of the map showing creases - not extending onto printed map. Two sheets joined at center with a horizontal fold along the entire map.

        I. Carte Particuliere des Costes de Normandie Depuis Dieppe jusqu'a la pointe de la Perçée en Bessin. Faite Par Ordre Exprez du Roy de France

      Paris [but Amsterdam: Mortier], 1693. Engraved with full, period colour. This large scale, beautifully coloured chart which shows the coast of France from Sainte Mère-Englise to Dieppe, comes from Le Neptune François , a lavish collection of charts produced collaboratively by Hubert Jaillot and Pierre Mortier. As Koeman discovered in his research on this work (see P. Mortier, Atlantes Neerlandici, Maritime Atlases, p. 423-4), Mortier re-engraved the plates after the original French prototype Neptune François by Charles Pène and others in a richly coloured edition and added to the titles the words "Levée et Gravée par ordre du Roy à Paris 1693" though they were in fact engraved, coloured and published in Amsterdam by Mortier. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French émigrés, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Pierre Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books and maintained his relationships with Parisian publishers. Amsterdam was at this time the international marketplace for books, especially books forbidden by repressive governments. He established himself in the field of cartographical publishing by offering editions of French maps, primarily Sanson's and Jaillot's to a public tired of the superb but dated Dutch offerings. Working on a scale larger than the typical Dutch folio map and providing the new insights of French geography, he was immensely successful. The charts in his version of Le Neptune François are outstanding examples of cartographical art. They are among the most beautiful printed sea charts ever made. This chart gives the soundings and shorelines for this area of French coastline along the English Channel including towns Bayeux and Rouen. Koeman, M. Mor 1, #16.

Prediger Balthasar Bekker (1634-1698) war einer der entschiedensten Kämpfer gegen den Hexenglauben. Das vorliegende, bedeutende Werk erschien zuerst zw. 1691 u. 1693 in Einzelausgaben. Da Bekker hier auch die grundlegende Macht des Teufels bestreitet, war er dauernden persönlichen Angriffen ausgesetzt; bereits 1692 wurde er durch die Synode von Alkmaar als Prediger abgesetzt u. eine Unzahl von Streitschriften wurden gegen ihn veröffentlicht. Welche epochale Wirkung sein Werk trotzdem hatte, zeigt sich daran, dass es nach der frühen dtsch. Übersetzung bereits 1694 auch in französischer u. 1695 in englischer Sprache vorlag. "Es ist ein äusserst gründliches und ausführliches Werk, vielleicht das grösste, das jemals über Magie geschrieben worden ist [.] Bekkers Buch erregte gewaltiges Aufsehen und erschien in vielen Auflagen und in verschiedenen Sprachen" (Hartmut Lehmann: Hexenverfolgungen und Hexenprozesse, in: Jahrbuch des Instituts für Deutsche Geschichte in Tel Aviv, 1978). Alle nachfolgenden Gegner der Hexenverfolgung berufen sich auf Bekker. - Einband leicht aufgeworfen; Innendeckel tlw. angeplatzt, vorne mit altem Besitzvermerk u. hinten mit Besitzerstempel; Titel mit kl. Randläsuren, wenige Seiten leicht fleckig u. gebräunt (darunter die Kupfertafel); insgesamt ein schönes Expl.

Sono riportati i testi dei discorsi pronunciati da Paolo Sinibaldi, Filippo Giusti e Amedeo Saminiati in occasione dell'incoronazione dell'immagine, oltre a numerose liriche e odi composte, in italiano e in latino, da Geronimo Vecoli, Giuseppe Maria Quilici, Lelio Mansi, Mauro Lorenzo Berti, Alfonso Sinibaldi, Antonio Pieroni, Pompeo Lommori, Lorenzo Cenami, Bernardo Moscheni, Francesco Motroni, Giovanni Spada, Alessandro Fanucchi, Domenico Giusti, Angelo Bendinelli, Pietro Francesco Benassai, Domenico Mansi, Angelo Montecatini, Fabio Mazzarosa, Andrea Fratini, Andrea Gervasi, Silvestro Santini, Gemignano Barsotti, Nicolao Emilio Mansi, Bernardo Boccella, Francesco Maria Fiorentini, Domenico Bartoli, Giovanni Bertocchi, Domenico Barsocchini, etc. Il presente testo si riferisce alla solenne cerimonia della incoronazione dell'effigie da parte di un delegato del Capitolo Vaticano, avvenuta il 30 aprile 1690. Essa era ospitata fin dal 1369 in una apposita cappella nella Chiesa di S.Salvatore in Muro reintitolata a S.Agostino, che i Padri agostiniani avevano in cura dal 1332. La Cappella fu commissionata dalla nobile famiglia dei Boccella i quali ne mantennero la cura nei secoli seguenti come testimoniano i lavori di abbellimento e ampliamento finanziati da Francesco Boccella nel XVII secolo. Dopo la celebrazione del 1690, alle cui spese contribuì il Senato della Repubblica che prese parte in forma ufficiale alla cerimonia, la devozione verso l´immagine si diffuse oltre che a Lucca, in altre parti della Diocesi. La Madonna del Sasso deve il suo nome ad una leggenda: si narra che un soldato che aveva perso al gioco scagliasse una pietra contro questo affresco attribuibile al XIII secolo e che la Vergine spostasse prontamente il Bambino Gesù dal lato destro al lato sinistro, così evitando il sasso. Codice libreria 113978.

        [Psyches et Amoris nuptiae fabula a Raphaele Sanctio Urbinate Romae in Farnesianis hortis Transtyberim ad veterum aemulationem ac laudem colorum luminibus expressa a... Dorigny... delineata et incisa, et a Ioanne Petro Belloriio notis illustrata]

      Rome: Domenico de' Rossi, 1693. Large folio. 10 hand-coloured engraved plates by Dorigny on laid paper (each 15 7/8 x 26 inches approximately), titles and imprints printed in gold, black ink-ruled borders, each plate cut to the edge of the image, mounted on large sheets of contemporary thick laid paper (each 29 3/8 x 40 3/8 inches approximately). Unbound A very fine suite of richly hand-coloured plates offering a stunning visual record of one of the best of the decorative interior schemes carried out by Raphael in Rome. This wonderful series records Raphael's 'Cupid and Psyche' series of frescoes, carried out by him between 1516 and 1518 in the Loggia of Psyche in the villa Farnesina in Rome. The series also comes with a title and an eleventh plate of the ceiling fresco in the adjoining Sala di Galatea, executed in 1512: neither the plate nor the title are present here. Originally published by the Rossis, the engravings are the work of Nicolas Dorigny (1658-1746) who lived and worked in Rome between about 1690 and 1719. The painter, classicist, and art historian Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1696) provided the text at the foot of the plates (appropriate excerpts from Apuleuis's Golden Ass).

        Atlas Nouveau, contenant toutes les parties du Monde, ou sont exactement remarqués les empires, monarchies, royaumes, estats, republiques & peuples qui sy [sic.] trouvent à present. Par le Sr. Sanson ... Presenté ... par ... Hubert Iaillot

      "Paris" [but Amsterdam]: "chez Hubert Jaillot" [but Pierre Mortier], 1693. 3 volumes, folio. (25 3/4 x 19 3/4 inches). Letterpress title printed in red and black with small engraved vignette, 1 folding letterpress text leaf "Les vies des anciens solitaires...". Hand-coloured engraved title, engraved frontispiece "Table des Cartes" with hand-coloured border surrrounding an onlaid central letterpress panel listing the contents, 94 only (of 100) engraved maps hand-colored in outline (1 folding, 69 double-page), 96 leaves of engraved text only (of 98, each printed recto only). (Lacking map numbers '3' "La Mappe-Monde"; '5' "L'Europe"; '11' " L'Amerique Septentrionale"; '42' "L'Espagne"; '46' "L'Italie"; '66' "Le Cours du Danube"; and 2 engraved text leaves, engraved frontispiece creased and with small tears to creases, 2 maps torn at folds). Contemporary light brown speckled calf, covers with gilt double-fillet border, spines in nine compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by gilt fillets, red/brown morocco lettering-pieces in the second, third and fourth compartments A very fine copy, with excellent contemporary hand colouring, of a variant not recorded by the standard bibliographies One of the most important figures in French cartography, Nicolas Sanson initiated the great school of French geographers. Born in Abbeville in 1600, Sanson established his first printing house in Paris in 1638. He soon became geographer to the king, establishing himself as one of the most influential cartographers on the continent. He was succeeded by his sons, Adrien, and Guillaume, and by his son-in-law Pierre Duval, who continued to publish a wealth of maps using Sanson's name. At the close of the seventeenth century, Sanson's plates were purchased by the influential cartographer Alexis Hubert Jaillot, who joined Sanson's heirs in the production of this atlas, which first appeared in 1681 (but with less than half the number of maps here). Jaillot had the elder Sanson's maps redrawn on a larger scale and with fresh embellishments on the finest paper. Pierre (or Pieter) Mortier was born in Amsterdam, but lived and worked in Paris for various cartographical publishers from 1681 to 1685, making the connections and learning the skills that were to stand him in good stead on his return to Amsterdam. He specialised in French books and according to Koeman "His knowledge of modern French cartography led him to copying the maps by Sanson, published by Jaillot". Maps of other cartographers frequently appear bound in this work; this copy contains Herman Moll's "A New Map Containing The Towns, Gentlemens Houses, Villages, and other Remarks Round London". This example seems to be an intermediate issue falling somewhere between Pastoreau 1D (same date on title, with 99 maps and 27 leaves of views and plans, but only 72 engraved text leaves) and Pastoreau 1E (with no views and plans, 99 engraved text leaves , but with 111 maps and 17pp. of letterpress text). Cf. Pastoreau 1 D; Tooley Maps and Map-Makers pp.40-41.

        Carte Generale Des Costes De L'Europe Sur L'Ocean Comprises depuis Drontheim en Norvege Jusques au Detroit de Gibraltar. Levée et Gravée par Ordre du Roy à Paris 1693

      Paris [but Amsterdam]: Mortier, 1693. Copper-engraved sea chart, with full original colour and gold embellishments, a minor split at centerfold skilfully repaired, overall in very good condition. A magnificent seventeenth-century sea chart of Western Europe, with gilt embellishments. This large scale, beautifully coloured coastal chart of Western Europe comes from Le Neptune François , a lavish collection of charts produced collaboratively by Hubert Jaillot and Pierre Mortier. As Koeman discovered in his research on this work (see P. Mortier, Atlantes Neerlandici, Maritime Atlases, p. 423-4), Mortier re-engraved the plates after the original French prototype Neptune François by Charles Pène and others in a richly coloured version and added to the titles the words "Levée et Gravée par Ordre du Roy à Paris 1693", though they were in fact engraved, coloured and published in Amsterdam by Mortier. The Netherlands and France were engaged in the War of the Grand Alliance at this time. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French refugees, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Pierre Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books and maintained his relationships with Parisian publishers. Amsterdam was at this time the international marketplace for books, especially books forbidden by repressive governments. He established himself in the field of cartographical publishing by offering editions of French maps, primarily Sanson's and Jaillot's to a public tired of the great but dated Dutch offerings. Working on a scale larger than the typical Dutch folio map and providing the new insights of French geography, he was immensely successful. The charts in his version of Le Neptune François are outstanding examples of cartographical art. They are among the most beautiful printed sea charts ever made. This general chart of the coast of Western Europe extends from the region west of Tronheim, Norway to about where Casablanca is on the coast of North Africa. It includes all of the British Isles and the coasts of, Denmark, northwestern Germany, Holland, France, Spain and Portugal. The map is oriented so that east is at the top of the page.
