De Wit, Frederick
1693. Amsterdam. unbound. very good. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 15.5" x 20". Beautiful and unusually rendered map of Limbourg in southeastern Belgium. The Vesdre River winds around and through farmland, the hills and the fortress. Tiny scenes, houses and animals dot the landscape. Includes two coats of arms. Originally published in "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae Urbium" (town book of Europe), circa 1693. Expert repairs to centerfold, a few small tears to bottom edge. Margins have been cropped. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world. His most famous work is the "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae," published after 1694, which contained 132 plans and views of European and Asian cities. By 1671, he was producing large folio atlases for both his shop and individual patrons that could contain anywhere between 15 and 150 maps. Today, these atlases grace the collections of many museums and institutions as evidence of the vibrant cartographic trade in Amsterdam in the middle- and late-17th century. This striking map is a rare example from this work.

The Osgood Mills in Salisbury, 1693. William Osgood of Shipton, England was a Pilgrim who arrived in America at the age of 29, in 1638, settling at first in Newbury, then finally settllng in the new community of Salisbury, along the Powow River, in 1641. "He was granted a 'goodly' piece of land on the east side of the Powow River. The Town granted him this land on the proviso that he construct a saw mill within six months 'that may be sufficient for the use of the Town.' He completed this mill which became only the second such mill in New England. He later constructed a grist mill along the Powow River ... William prospered in the mill business and his descendents tended to cluster in the Salisbury/Amesbury area to be around the business of the "Osgood Mills." Because of its location along the Powow River, Salisbury became an important source of lumber for the shipbuilding industry, and the Osgoods prospered.(cf. "Osgood Ancestry" at www.osgoodancestry.org/emigrants) Here, in his old age, Osgood begins to divest his holdings: "Know ye that I, William Osgood, for and in consideration of the Sum of Ten Pounds ... fully clearly & absolutely give grant bargain sell ... to them one quarter part apiece of all my rights & In … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coronelli, Vincenzo (1650-1718)
Venice, 1693. A SPLENDID EXAMPLE OF THE WORK OF THE GREAT LATE 17TH CENTURY CARTOGRAPHER VINCENZO CORONELLI, SHOWING THE COAST OF THE AMERICAN NORTHEAST AND CANADA 17 ¼" (height) x 11" (base) This globe gore represents the most advanced state of 17th-century knowledge regarding the geography of the Atlantic coast of New England and Canada. As Royal Cartographer to King Louis XIV in the 1680s, mapmaker Vincenzo Coronelli gained special access to the most current records on American geography sent in from the colonies, and he relied heavily on manuscripts from the discoveries of the explorer Louis Joliet and of Jean-Baptiste-Louis Franquelin, official cartographer of maps relating to New France. Though this map was published roughly ten years after Coronelli's return to Venice, its sophisticated geographical information reflects the invaluable knowledge he had acquired in Paris. Coronelli was both cleric and encyclopedist, with a particular interest in geography and cartography. He joined the Franciscan Order in Venice in 1665 and six years later entered the convent of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, which was to become his professional workshop. He was sole author or contributor to over one hundred and forty titles and produced several hundred maps, either printed separately or as parts of atlases. Coronelli published his groundbreaking cartographic work in a number of notable publications, including the "Atlante Veneto" (1691-1692), the "Corso Geografico Universale" (1692 & 1695) and the "Isolario" (1696-1697). Most of his globe gores were obviously meant to be assembl … [Click Below for Full Description]

LE BOSSU, RENÉ
Paris: Chez André Pralard, 1693. n. First printed in 1675, this treatise on the epic poem is the chief work (along with a book discussing Aristotle and Descartes) of the French critic Le Bossu (1631-80). His writing was praised by Boileau and Dryden and quoted in Congreve's "The Double Dealer" as well as in Macaulay's "History of England." His main thesis here is that the epic poet, epitomized by Virgil and Homer, creates a poetic allegory intended to teach moral behavior and belief. This doctrine runs counter to most modern notions of dramatic technique because Le Bossu argues that the theme of any work should be determined before the creation of characters, and that the action should proceed independently from those personages who participate in it. Early editions of this book are not commonly seen in the marketplace.. 165 x 102 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). 6 p.l. (including the frontispiece), 420 pp. Contemporary mottled calf, neatly rebacked (apparently in the 18th century), gilt ruled spine with raised bands and stylized gilt floral ornament as a centerpiece. Engraved allegorical frontispiece, woodcut title vignette, headpieces, and tailpieces. Title printed in red and black. Bookplate of "Milton, Peterborough." Brunet VI, 731 (citing a later edition). Leather a bit dry and flaking, small branching wormhole in lower margin of last four leaves, otherwise an excellent, remarkably crisp copy in a sound and pleasant binding. First printed in 1675, this treatise on the epic poem is the chief work (along with a book discussing Aristotle and Descartes) of the French critic Le Bossu (163 … [Click Below for Full Description]

On both sides are blind tooled panels, plain in the centre and with devices at each corner.

Small ink inscription and library stamp of Bibliotheca Pusieana, Oxon. to title. Two small wormholes at extreme lower margin of first 60 pages.

Pusey House is a center of Anglo-Catholic worship and Study at the University of Oxford, named after the prominent Tractarian Edward Bouverie Pusey. The Oxford (or Tractarian) Movement was a movement of High Church Anglicans, eventually developing into Anglo-Catholicism. The movement, the members of which were often associated with the University of Oxford, argued for the recovery of traditional aspects of the Christian faith, subsequently lost, and their inclusion into Anglican liturgy and theology and conceived of the Anglican Church as one of three branches of the Catholic Church. A nice copy of this scarce and generally skeptical treatise.

MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711)
Paris [but Amsterdam: Mortier], 1693. Copper-engraved sea chart, with full original colour, printer's thumbprint lower left corner, overall in very good condition. 24 1/2 x 37 1/2 inches. A beautiful coastal chart of the mouth of the Thames River and Suffolk, England, with inset map of the Thames to London. This large scale, beautifully coloured coastal chart of the mouth of the Thames River and adjacent coasts 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, primaril … [Click Below for Full Description]

Large, handsome coastal chart of northwestern Scotland, the Hebrides and northern Ireland This large scale, beautifully coloured coastal chart of Scotland, Ireland and the Hebrides comes from Le Neptune François, a lavish collection of charts produced collaboratively by Hubert Jaillot and Pierre Mortier.

They were sold in France, we can assume, under the auspices of Hubert Jaillot, who had been appointed the first "Geographe du Roi" in 1678.

At the suggestion of Meric Casaubon he acquired a knowledge of Anglo-Saxon, and then wrote Observations on the Laws of King Henry I, published by Roger Twysden in 1644, with a new glossary.

Hilaire Baritel, LIONE (LYON) 1693 - Lione (1693) - Hilaire Baritel. 1 ff bb, 30 pp nn, 137 pp, 3 pp nn, 1 ff bb. Bella antiporta calcografica che illustra alcune possibili applicazioni di questa tecnica. Legatura coeva in piena pelle con piccole mancanze (restaurate) alle parti superiori ed inferiori del dorso. Titolo e decorazioni in oro al dorso. Interno in ottimo stato; carta con bruniture sparse. Prima edizione di questo raro trattato di rabdomanzia comparso lo stesso anno della pubblicazione del libro "La physique occulte, ou Traité de la baguette divinatoire" dell'abate di Vallemont sullo stesso argomento. Le origini della rabdomanzia (termine coniato dal Vallemont, dal greco rhábdos: bacchetta e manteia: divinazione) sembrano essere molto antiche, ma le notizie più certe sull'utilizzo di questa tecnica in Occidente, e più precisamente in Germania, risalgono al XVI secolo, dove veniva usualmente impiegata per dirigere l'estrazione di minerali e carbone dalle miniere. Questa tecnica entrò in voga a partire dal 1692 dopo le rivelazioni del radioestesista Jacques Aymar riguardo i poteri meravigliosi della rabdomanzia e la pubblicazione di una dotta dissertazione sull'argomento del medico Pierre Garnier.

Leonard, Frederic [ed]:
Paris. 1693.. Six volumes. Quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, gilt morocco labels. Old small library stamp on titlepages. Scattered light tanning and an occasional fox mark, small bit of worming in lower margin of some leaves in second and third volumes, else internally clean. A very good set. This massive compilation is the first major collection of French treaties, beginning in 1435 and running to 1692, including many treaties relating to America. Many important French state papers appeared here for the first time, especially ones from the 15th and 16th centuries. It was not until the early 17th century that published versions of treaties began to appear simultaneously with the event, and even then treaties between kings were often secret, or contained secret sections, for decades. Thus, the Leonard set offers either first or very early printings of many documents of the greatest importance, including a number that are important for the Americas. The NUC entry for this work describes it in six volumes and locates five sets. Sabin states the work consists of six regular volumes plus two additional volumes of twenty-nine treaties with separate titlepages for each, covering treaties from 1697 to 1719. This set includes the original six volumes published in 1693, and is complete in and of itself. Frances Davenport identifies eleven treaties for which the Leonard set provides the first or first French printing between 1556 and 1684, as follow: 1) Davenport 20. Treaty between France and Spain, 1556, by which the French agreed to stay out of Spanish America and the … [Click Below for Full Description]

MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711)
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. 24 1/2 x 37 inches. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711)
[Amsterdam: Mortier], 1693. Engraved with full, period colouring and gold embellishment. Small loss in bottom edge, about 1/4". 22 3/4 x 31 1/2 inches. 24 1/2 x 37 1/4 inches. Large, richly coloured chart of Picardy and the English Channel. This large scale, beautifully coloured coastal chart of the northwest coast of France and the English Channel 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, in this case, "Faite par Ordre Exprez du Roy de France 1693" though they were in fact engraved, coloured and published in Amsterdam by Mortier.

De Fer, Nicolas
Paris: De Fer , 1693. Very good; extra printers crease to left of main image, just crossing upper left neatline. This is the title page to Nicolas de Fer's large publication detailing plans of military fortifications. The image itself measures 7.5x7.5 inches, b&w as issued, and is quite decorative with a central armorial, flanked above by an small but elaborate land battle, and below by a sea battle scene..
