Hooghe, Romeyn de (1645-1708)
1694. "[NL] Grote, zeer gedetailleerde kaart die op naam staat van J. de Vou. In cartouche rechtsboven: ""Rotterdam met al syn gebouwen ... Ao 1694 door Joannes de Vou"". Na de succesvolle plattegrond van Haarlem uit 1688/89 kreeg De Hooghe op 25 september 1690 opdracht van burgemeesteren van Rotterdam voor een Rotterdams equivalent. Het resultaat viel echter tegen, want op 11 januari 1692 schreven burgemeesteren aan De Hooghe niet tevreden te zijn. De kaart was ""met menigvuldig vauten vervult en schijnt meerder naer oude kaerten getrocken, dan naer de ware geschapenheyt van onse stad te gelijken"". Na verbeteringen kwam de kaart in 1694 gereed. De Hooghe kreeg er ruim tweeduizend gulden voor betaald. Uit een advertentie van 1696 blijkt dat De Vou de kaart had getekend en dat De Hooghe haar ""in 't koper"" bracht.De Vou kreeg slechts honderd gulden betaald voor zijn aandeel. Evenals de kaart van Haarlem is er een uitgebreid randwerk (bij ons exemplaar niet aanwezig) dat o.a. bestaat uit een groot panorama op de stad, twaalf stadsgezichten en een groot aantal familiewapens. Gesigneerd r.o.: ""Romanus de Hooghe J.U.D. et Com. R. auctor 1694"". [EN]"."Etching on six sheets of paper, hand coloured, framed (with transportation box), ca. 1100 x 1220 mm (six plates together).

[Quran].
Hamburg, Gottfried Schultze & Benjamin Schiller, 1694.. 4to. (88), 560, (10) pp. Latin title printed in red and black; Arabic (woodcut) and Latin half-titles. Preface in Latin, text in vocalized Arabic throughout. Contemp. vellum with faded ms. spine.. The famous "Hamburg Koran": while not actually (as it was long considered) the first printed Qur'an ever, the first accessible printed edition of the Arabic text. Only in 1987 was a unique copy of Paganino de Paganinis's Venetian edition (c. 1538) rediscovered, a work whose press run either was destroyed immediately or was limited to the sole surviving specimen, apparently a proof copy (cf. A. Nuovo, "Il Corano arabo ritrovato", in: Bibliofilia LXXX, IX, 1987). Four years after the present edition, in 1698, Lodovico Marracci produced his own Qur'an, but its two big tomes were anything but easy to consult - hence, the Hamburg Koran remained "the only available and handleable" (Smitskamp) edition until the early 19th century. - Abraham Hinckelmann (1652-95), a Hamburg theologian, studied at Wittenberg and collected many Oriental manuscripts. He compiled a Quranic lexicon in manuscript and planned a Latin translation of the Koran, but this was never realised. - Some browning throughout; occasional pencil and ink notes in the text and extensive notes on flyleaves by previous owners. This the the more common variant with only one woodcut Arabic title. - Provenance: from the library of the German theologian Georg Detharding (1727-1813; cf. ADB V, 79) with his ownership to front flyleaf and lower pastedown; acquired in Berlin in 181 … [Click Below for Full Description]

FOX, GEORGE
London, Printed for Thomas Northcott, in George-Yard, in Lombard-Street. MDCXCIV. [1694]. George Fox(1624-1691) founder of the Society of Friends. "Born in Leicestershire and apprenticed to a shoemaker, he apparently had no formal schooling. In 1643 he parted fromfamily and friends and traveled in search of enlightenment. After long painful struggles he came in 1646 to rely on the `Inner Light of the Living Christ.' He forsook church attendance, dismissed contemporary religious controversies as trivial, and in 1647 began to preach that truth is to be found in God's voice speaking to the soul- -hence, `Friends of Truth' later abbreviated to `Friends.' In 1649 he was jailed for interrupting a Nottingham church service with an impassioned appeal from the Scriptures to the Holy Spirit as the authority and guide. In 1650 at Derby he was imprisoned as a blasphemer, and there a judge nicknamed the `Quakers,' after Fox had exhorted the magistrates to 'tremble at the word of the Lord.' .Fox spent six years in different prisons, sometimes under terrible conditions. He campaigned against the latter and against other social evils. His famous journal was published posthumously in 1694."--Douglas: The New Int'l Dict. of the Christian Church, pp.383- 384. We offer the 1694 First Edition of his Journal, indispensable for the study of his life and the early days of the Quakers. Provenance, the following two inscriptions written on leaf A1 and bottom of p.632. 3rd inscription on leaf A1 only.

An interesting collection of engraved portraits of artists (including Breughel, Durer, Holbein, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Rubens, Titian, Van Dyck, and Van Eyck) with English title and text, taken from a Dutch work entitled Het gulden cabinet van de edele vry schilder const (1662), itself a portmanteau of two earlier French works.

ESTC describes the 1694 edition as being in two parts, with two divisional engraved title pages and a total of 121 portraits. This 1705 reissue seems to combine the two sequences, while retaining only one engraved title page (which reads: Image de divers hommes d'esprit. Anvers Mis en lumier par Iean Meyssens, 1649).

JANSSONIUS, Johannes (1588-1664).
Amsterdam: Amsterdam:Pieter Schenk and Gerald Valk, [after 1694]. - Single sheet (21 x 24 2/8 inches). Exceptionally fine double-page engraved map of New England, including Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and part of Virginiawith magnificent hand-colour, the scale, dedication and title each within elaborate rococo cartouches along the bottom edge, the land decorated with images of native American villages and wild animals, the ocean with war canoe (old vertical fold a little browned in the crease, remains of guard on verso). The third state, with the Valk and Schenk imprint, with the added dedication to Gualthero de Raet with his coat of arms and the imprint of Valk and Schenk, first published by Jansson in 1650, and one of the fundamental prototype maps of New England, the then most important part of colonial America, of the 17th-century. Initially compiled from numerous manuscript and printed sources, the map follows the general outline of Adriaen Block's chart of 1614 with the St. Lawrence River and Lake Champlain based on Champlain. Many European settlements are depicted with several English settlements appearing for the first time. Jansson's primary concern was "to produce a detailed and informative map of the Dutch province of New Netherland and the surrounding region. The result is a valuable historical source and as evocative a picture as any we have of North America between Jamestown and Quebec. Besides these two towns, the settlements on the Delawre (Zuydt), Hudson and Connecticut Rivers, those in the vicinity of Manhattan and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Octavo panelled leather with corner stylized florettes (spine repaired with old leather laid on, leather loss to one florette, tips worn). Titlepage +[30]pp prelims +359pp. Front free endpaper inscribed "J. Scott e Coll: Univ. Oxon" with his later circular bookplate as Lord Chancellor & Earl of Eldon (1751-1838). Endpapers and first and last two leaves foxed. Some small worm holes to margins but nowhere near text. Printed shoulder and marginal notes and one page with underlining and Scott's MS marginal notes on Descartes. Otherwise a clean crisp copy of an interesting study of poetry, art, but mainly maths, science including alchemy and a chapter on the circulation of the blood taken from Greek and Latin authors and Egyptian, Arabian and Chinese. *The future Lord Chancellor was at University College from 1766 to the early 1770's but on his elopement and marriage he had to give up his Oxford fellowship and studied law. His successful rise through the legal ranks led to his appointment as Lord Chancellor in 1801 a post which he held far too long, more than 20 years.

[32], 451, [3], 459-472, 465-480, 489-491, [57] pp. Includes first blank leaf [A1], additional engraved title page [A2r], world maps and other illustrations in the text. Contemporary English vellum, gold tooled, evidence of two pair of green silk ties. Preserved in a black cloth slipcase. The first edition of Macrobius' works to be printed in England, which is further distinguished by the fact that the printer was MARY CLARK and Benjamin Motte. Mary Clark (fl. 1677-96), the widow of Andrew Clark, continued the business for nearly twenty years after her husband's death in 1678, and was quite prolific, printing almanacs, devotional literature, and the like, often for the Company of Stationers or notable booksellers. * This is a fully-indexed "modern" critical edition with notes by Pontanus, Meursius and Gronovius, and illustrated with numerous figures including the famous Macrobian world map on page 106 which illustrates an antipodal southern continent as well as worldwide water currents. * This copy does not contain the Imprimatur leaf found in a few copies only. * REFERENCES: Wing, M229. Schweiger II, 587. Graesse III, 330. Lowndes VI, 1447. ESTC R036883. * A very attractive copy.

"This is a malignant attack on Charles II, of unknown authorship, representing him as a Roman Catholic throughout.
