        [Giuseppe Tortoriti] Joseph Tortoriti, faisant le personage de Scaramouche

      Augsburg: Published in Augsburg by Jeremias Wolff, 1695. Engraving with superb early colour and rich gold highlights. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 9 5/8 x 6 7/8 inches. This is a handsome print, with breathtaking early colour, depicting the celebrated Italian comic actor Guiseppe Tortoriti, in the character of Scaramouche Giuseppe Tortoriti, shown as Scaramouche, was usually Pasqariel, and was known by the latter name. He was one of the leading commedia dell'arte performers when Louis XIV closed the theatre in Paris in 1697 because of a supposed insult to Mme. Maintenon. Louis selected Tortoriti to form a new company, which was allowed to perform in France but not within 30 leagues of Paris. Tortoriti's troupe played mainly around Toulouse. Italian troupes did not perform in Paris again until after Louis' death. This bold print is from a colourful series of costume prints engraved and published by Jeremias Wolff at the beginning of the 18th century. The series depicts prancing figures in flamboyant theatrical costumes, and is a superb example of early costume prints. Costume and trade prints, such as this, became extremely popular in Europe at the close of the seventeenth century and continued to serve as a source of inspiration until the decadent days of the Art Deco movement in the 1920's. This magnificent series depicts the costumes of ballet dancers, and opera singers, as well as the vibrant apparel of a jester at a masque ball. As is typical of this genre of print, the figures are pictured in front of an architectural or pastoral background and richly coloured in thick opaque colour with vibrant gold highlights. The series was executed and produced by the prolific German publisher Jeremias Wolff. Wolff came from a family of engravers and became extremely successful, both as an engraver and as a publisher and printseller. He was one of the most prolific publishers and engravers in Augsburg and is responsible for some of the finest engravings to come out of the city. In addition to a number of other costume books and portraits, he was a successful map publisher and it is for his skill as a cartographic engraver that he is perhaps best known.

        A New Map of the English Empire in America Viz Virginia Maryland Carolina Pennsylvania New York New Jersey New England by Rob: Morden

      London: "Sold by Robt. Morden at the Atlas in Cornhill./ And by Christopher Brown at ye Globe/ near the Westend of St. Pauls/ Church: London", 1695. Copper-engraved map by John Harris, with original outline colour. Paper toned and margins somewhat soiled otherwise in very good condition. A rare and important map of the American colonies, in the scarce first state. This is in effect a propaganda map, compiled during the War of the League of Augsburg, or King William's War (1689-97). Morden shows the English American colonies thrusting westward, at the expense of the rival French claims. In addition to the Midwest, much of Canada is shown as English. The English colonies along the Atlantic Seaboard are carefully delineated according to English sources, but Canada, the Mississippi Valley, and the Great Lakes are based on French sources, including the maps of Dablon (1672) and Thevenot (1681). Morden still preserves Lederer's configuration (1672) in his depiction of the interior of the Southeast. At lower right is a large inset map of the North Atlantic, the vital life line between Britain and its American empire. Just above is the title piece crowned by the Royal Arms, and an inset map of Boston Harbor based on Thomas Pound's A New Mapp of New England from Cape Codd to Cape Sables (1691). The engraver, John Harris was one of the most accomplished members of his profession working in England. The insets are surrounded by decorative acanthus brackets and supports in the arabesque style, a signature motif of the artist. A second state was published in 1719 with the imprint of John Senex.

        Document signed by Col. Dudley Bradstreet, son of poet Anne Bradstreet, who was accused as a witch and murderer. Ironically, as Justice of the Peace, he signed almost 50 arrest warrants for those accused of witchcraft - also signed by Minister Joseph Moody, subject of Hawthorne's "The Minister's Black Veil."

      Essex County, Massachusetts, March 28, 1695. 12.75" x 16.5". "Manuscript Document Signed ""Dudley Bradstreet Justice of peace,"" 1 page, 12.75"" x 16.5"". March 28, 1695. Also signed ""Jos. Moody Regr.,"" ""Samuel Ingolls Junr,"" ""Joseph Woodbridge,"" and ""John Law Tertius."" On watermarked laid paper. Holes and gaps at folds do not materially affect the appearance or legibility of the deed. Toned folds do not affect the darkly penned document. Folds expertly mended on verso. Very good condition.Col. Dudley Bradstreet (1647-1706), as Justice of the Peace, acknowledges ""this instrument to be his Act & Deed"" in an Autograph Endorsement Signed on March 28, 1695, nine months after Samuel Ingalls, Jr. sold Cocks-Hall, a 6 mile by 4 mile tract of land in Essex County, Massachusetts, to Serjeant Stephen Jaques. Joseph Moody (1700-1753), Registrar, signs an Autograph Endorsement Signed on May 30, 1727, attesting that the deed here offered was ""Recorded with the Records of Deeds &c for the County of York ... Compared by Jos. Moody Regr."" Moody was York?s registrar of deeds, county clerk, and judge. He later became minister of the Second Church of York. Moody was the veiled Puritan minister in Nathaniel Hawthorne?s fictional short story The Minister's Black Veil. He preached with a handkerchief over his face and kept a diary in coded Latin. Joseph Woodbridge (1657-1726) and John Law signed as witnesses. Law may be John Law (1635-1707) of Acton, Mass., just 35 miles southwest of Ipswich.BackgroundDudley Bradstreet was a son of Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672), the first woman to be recognized as an accomplished New World poet. He was an attorney, a Colonel in the militia, schoolteacher, and served as a selectman and town clerk in Andover, Mass. Though he opposed the entire witchcraft delusion, he found himself in the unenviable position of Justice of the Peace during the hysteria. In the eight weeks from July 15 to September 6, 1692, Col. Bradstreet granted out arrest warrants against, and committed, some 30 people to prison for supposed witchcrafts.On September 7, 1692, Rev. Thomas Barnard called a meeting of a portion of his congregation in Andover. After a short prayer, Rev. Barnard launched into a sermon describing the evils of witchcraft. Apparently 18 women and girls present were blindfolded and had their hands laid upon several children who were said to be afflicted by these women (the ""touch"" test). The men present encouraged the confused and upset women to confess they were witches as a way to eternal life. They were then seized by a warrant from Dudley Bradstreet and taken to Salem. Bradstreet then refused to grant any warrants. Not long afterwards, both he and his wife Ann were themselves, accused of witchcraft, with the ""afflicted"" claiming that they had killed at least nine people.Bradstreet and his wife fled but he later returned to Andover and his name appears first on the petition presented to the Superior Court of Judicature at Salem at its opening session on January 3, 1693. It was signed not only by Bradstreet, but also by Rev. Thomas Barnard, 39 other men, and 12 women. The petition affirmed the innocence of the women. Col. Bradstreet's brother, John Bradstreet, had met a few of the ""afflcted"" girls in the street when a dog ran out, barked at him then ran away. Immediately, the girls accused John Bradstreet of having afflicted the dog. John didn't wait for the inevitable complaint and fled to New York on the first available ship. The dog was tried, found guilty, and dog was hanged as a witch.The Land DeedThe land deed here offered, in part: ""To all People to whom these Presents shall come I Samuel Ingolls Junr of Ipswich in the County of Essex in the Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England America send Greeting Know ye that the sd Samuel Ingolls Junr for divers good Causes & Considerations me thereunto Moving but especially for & in Consideration of a valuable Sum in Hand paid unto me ye sd Samuel Ingolls Jun by Serjnt Stephen Jacques of Newbury in ye County aforesd the Receipt of all & every part thereof I do own my self to have received to my full satisfaction & content & do thereby for my self my heyrs Execrs & Administs acquitt exonerate & discharg the sd Serjnt Stephen Jaques his heyrs Execrs and Administs by these Present Have given granted bargained & sold enscoffed and confirmed and Do by these Presents fully freely clearly and absolutely give grant bargain and sell enscoffed & confirm unto the sd Serj Stephen Jaques two hundred Acres of Land being part of a Tract which my self and divers others as joynt Purchasers purchased of Mr Harlackenden Symonds of Ipswich in the County aforesd which sd Tract of Land is six Miles in length & four Miles in Breadth known by the Name of Cocks Hall in the County of York=shire in the Province of Maine...""...two hundred Acres of Land herein mentioned belonging as namely the Trees ,Woods, under woods standing or lying upon the sd Land whatsoever or wheresoever it shall be, against all Manner of Persons whatsoever having claiming or pretending to have any just or lawful Right or Title or Interest unto the sd bargained Premisses or any Part or Parcel thereof To have and to hold the sd bargained Premisses & every Part & Parcel thereof as aforementioned together with all Meadows Swamps Waters & Water Courses Mines or Mineralls in or upon sd Land To him the sd Serjnt Stephen Jaques his Heirs Execrs Adminisrs & Assigns for ever..."""

Nov. 1627 in Lübeck geboren. Durch den Verlust beider Eltern in tiefste Armut gestürzt, hinderte ihn sein Adelsprädikat an einem unstandesgemäßen Broterwerb. So nahm er den bürgerlichen Namen Francisci - nach dem Vornamen seines Vaters - an. Durch seine schwächliche Natur an den Schreibtisch gefesselt, erlangte er in kurzer Zeit einen bedeutenden Ruf als Autor und Polyhistoriker.

VD17 23:641786Y; HKJL II, 407. - Sehr seltenes heraldisches "Lehrspiel" (über KVK für uns nur 4 Expl. nachweisbar, davon 2 ohne die Kupfer). Gegenüber der 1659 in Lyon erschienenen Originalausgabe sind erhebliche Änderungen vorgenommen worden. So wurden im deutschen Sprachraum mehr oder weniger unbekannte Adelshäuser durch einheimische ersetzt. Deshalb wird auf dem Titel auch darauf verwiesen, dass das Buch lediglich der Idee des eigentlichen Autors Claude Oronce Finé de Brianville (1608-1674) folge. Diese "Idee" ist recht einfach. Es gibt 52 Tafeln (Karten), die alle das Wappen eines Herrscherhauses zeigen. Dieses wird zusätzlich auf der Spielkarte heraldisch korrekt beschrieben. In der linken oberen Ecken des Blattes ist der Farbwert der Karte angebracht. Zu jeder Karte gibt es im Buch ein erläuterndes Kapitel zum Wappen selbst sowie zur Geographie und Geschichte der jeweiligen Herrschaften. Jedes Kapitel ist um die Zuordnung zu erleichtern in der Überschrift ebenfalls mit dem Farbwert gekennzeichnet. Eine interessante Interpretation der Kupfer liefert Hans Legband, der sie in Beziehung zur Ständeordnung des Deutschen Reichs setzt und dabei eine italienische Ausgabe ausführlich beschreibt (Zu den Quaternionen der Reichsverfassung. S. 495ff. In: Archiv für Kulturgeschichte, Bd. 3 (1905) - Online abrufbar). Da in der ersten französischen Auflage einige Adelige moniert hatten, dass ihre Wappen dem Kartenwert "Bube" bzw. "Valet" zugeordnet worden waren, änderte der Autor die Bezeichnung in der zweiten Auflage in "Chevalier". Dies ist in der deutschen Ausgabe übernommen worden ("Cavalier"). - Im Gegensatz zu den anderen für uns nachweisbaren und unkompletten Exemplaren fehlen hier nicht die Kupfertafeln, sondern das gestochene Frontispiz, 3 Bl. Titelei u. die Textseiten 1/2. Von diesem Mangel abgesehen, nur gering gebräuntes, gutes Exemplar.

After the fire that destroyed the preeminent Blaeu firm in 1672, the publishing center of the cartographic world gradually transitioned from Amsterdam to Paris. It was published in Paris by Jean-Claude Dezauche. Hubert Jaillot who was trained as a sculptor, married the daughter of the owner of a lucrtative map & print publishing enterprise, Nicholas Berey and inherited the business upon his death. When Nicholas Sanson, the premier French cartographer of the day, died, Jaillot negotiated with his heirs to republish much of Sanson`s work with little modification to the originals. Jaillot`s maps were particularly beautiful with their elaborate and meaningful allegorical cartouches and other decorative elements. In 1686 Jaillot was awarded the title of Geographe du Roi. His most famous works include the \"Atlas Nouveau - 1674\" and \"Atlas Français - 1695\" Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        Solemnite du Bucentaure qui se celebre a Venise le jour de l'ascension

      A Amsterdam : chez Pierre Mortier, libraire sur le Vygendam à la ville de Paris, 1695 - 42 x 31 cm. Proveniente da: Histoire du gouvernement de Venise, avec des notes historiques et politiques par le sieur Amelot de la Houssaie. Pieter Mortier (1661–1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Solemnité du Bucentaure presents a bird's-eye view of a procession of boats centered on the doge's barge, the Bucentaur, passing the church of San Nicolas de Lido to perform the annual ceremony of the "Wedding of the Sea." Performed annually on Ascension Day from the Middle Ages until 1789, the ritual symbolically married Venice to the Adriatic Sea as an assertion of Venetian maritime power. At the culmination, the doge dropped a ring consecrated by the pope into the water. Known in Italian as the Bucintoro, the grand, oar-driven boat is seen here flying the Venetian flag, with the doge and church officials on a platform at the stern. The other boats include gondolas of varying sizes carrying dignitaries, each labeled with its name, such as the Gondola of the French Ambassador and Gondola of the Papal Nuncio. A version of this map was later republished after Pierre Mortier's death by the successor firm Covens and Mortier. 18mo secolo

      London: Morden (Sold by Abel Swale, Awnsham and John Churchill). Original Map in breathtaking condition. Excellent colouring.. London, Morden (Sold by Abel Swale, Awnsham and John Churchill), 1695. Original hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 35 cm wide x 42.5 cm high. Mounted: c. 52 cm x 59 cm. Original Map in breathtaking condition. Excellent colouring. Robert Morden (c.1650-1703) was an English bookseller, publisher, and maker of maps and globes. He was among the first successful commercial map makers. Between about 1675 and his death in 1703, he was based under the sign of the Atlas at premises in Cornhill and New Cheapside, London. His cartographical output was large and varied. His best-known maps are those of South Wales, North Wales and the English Counties first published in a new edition of Camden's "Britannia" in 1695, and subsequently reissued in 1722, 1753 and 1772. These maps were based on new information from gentlemen of each county, and were newly engraved. Each had a decorated cartouche, and showed numerous place names. Morden also produced in 1701 a series of smaller county maps often known as Miniature Mordens. In 1695 he published a map of Scotland. It is in parts (e.g. Skye and the Western Isles) essentially a copy of the 1654 map done by Robert Gordon of Straloch, published by Joan Blaeu; other parts show evidence of more accurate cartography. He published a new map of the Tamil homeland, Coylot Wanees Country, in 17th century Ceylon island. He is also known for several very rare early maps of the British colonies in North America, which are now among the earliest and most sought after maps for collectors of old American maps. He also produced a series of miniature maps of the world, which appeared in both playing card format and in a series of atlases, including his Atlas Terrestris and Geography Anatomiz'd, beginning in 1687.

"[Neumeister's] importance for music history lies in the nine cycles of cantata texts that he wrote between 1695 and 1742... [His] fame rests on his combination of these two types of text into the newer mixed cantata, which became standard in the 18th century. Although others may have combined these elements earlier, including Count Ernst Ludwig of Meiningen (Küster, 1987), it was NeumeisterÂ’s third cycle – prepared for the court at Eisenach, published in 1711 and set to music by G.P. Telemann – that established the new genre. Bach drew his Neumeister texts (for bwv 18, 24, 28, 59 and 61) from the third and fourth cycles." Kerala J. Snyder in Grove Music Online.

Navigational features on the land are marked - churches, castles and lighthouses etc. The sand banks are marked complete with sea depths, safe anchorage etc., rhumb lines and compass rose and an attractive cartouche. A rare chart produced by the successful Van Keulen firm. Their charts are scarce in England as the English were frequently at war with the Dutch during the heyday of their production. JOHANNES VAN KEULEN 1654-1711 - GERARD VAN KEULEN 1678-c.1727 The Dutch produced a remarkable number of enterprising and prolific map and chart makers but not even the Blaeu and Jansson establishments could rival the vigour of the van Keulen family whose business was founded in 1680 and continued under their name until 1823 The firm was founded by Johannes van Keulen who was registered as a bookseller in Amsterdam in 1678. In 1680 he published the first part of his Zee Atlas which, over the years, was expanded to 5 volumes and continued in one form or another until 1734. More ambitious and with a far longer and more complicated life was his book of sea charts, the Zee-Fakkel, published in 1681-82 Although the firm was founded by Johannes van Keulen, he was primarily a publisher; it was his son, Gerard, a talented engraver and mathematician, Hydrographer to the East India Company, who became the mainspring of the business, which not only published charts but also books on every aspect of geography, navigation and nautical matters. The title of the map is in lower case script and for some reason the engraver inverted the 'u' in Gradually so that it reads Gradnally PRINTS/MAPS SEA CHARTS PRINTS/MAPS

First Gibson translation. An exceptionally clean, large-paper copy, rarely found in a contemporary binding. Camden?s Britannia, which took nearly ten years to research and compose, was an immensely popular and successful book -- first published in Latin in 1586, ?by 1623 it had been reprinted half-a-dozen times and was already twice its original size. It was reprinted for the last time to date expanded into four enormous folio volumes as late as 1806-1842? (PMM 101). The authors continue that ?if Camden was not the first English historian, topographer and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies... [with] the long tradition of accurate and co-ordinated antiquarian study in Great Britain is almost entirely due to Camden.? In his preface, Gibson writes that ?The maps are all new engrav?d, either according to surveys never before publish?d, or according to such as have been made and printed since Saxton and Speed. And that nothing might be wanting to render to render them as complete and accurate as might be, this whole business was committed to Mr. Robert Morden... who took care to revise them, to see the slips of the Engraver mended, and the corrections duly inserted. Upon the whole we need not scruple to affirm that they are by much the fairest and most correct of any that have appeared.? PMM 101. Chubb 113. ESTC R12882. Wing C359.

        A pattern of a well-constituted and well-governed hospital.

      Richard Baldwin, London 1695 - [Le Jeune de Boulencourt.] A pattern of a well-constituted and well-governed hospital: Or, a brief description of the building, and full relation of the establishment, constitution, discipline, oeconomy and administration of the government of the Royal Hospital of the Invalids, near Paris. Partly translated from a large book printed some years ago in French; and partly extracted out of some other manuscript relations never before published. Translated by James Fraser. 8vo. [12], xix, 170, [10], [4, adverts.]pp. Folding engraved plate. London: Richard Baldwin, 1695. 157 x 99 mm. Sprinkled calf ca. 1695, rebacked. Tears in plate repaired, minor worming in gutter margins of several leaves, but very good. 19th century armorial bookplate. Rare First Edition of this English translation of Le Jeune de Boulencourt’s Déscription générale de l’Hostel royal des Invalides (1683). The original French edition, a magnificent and expensive folio volume, documented the construction and management of the Hôtel des Invalides, the pioneering hospital and retirement home commissioned in 1670 by Louis XIV for the treatment and housing of wounded and indigent veterans. The design of Les Invalides strongly influenced the construction of similar institutional buildings in England, including the Chelsea Hospital (est. 1682), designed by Christopher Wren, and the Royal Naval Hospital at Greenwich (est. 1695), the work of Wren and his pupil John Hawksmoor. It was the founding of the latter hospital that prompted Fraser’s anonymously published English translation of Le Jeune’s Déscription générale, which made the substance of the French work available at a far more reasonable price. Construction of the Royal Naval Hospital began in 1696, so it is more than likely that Fraser’s translation served as a reference for the hospital’s builders. This book is rare, with OCLC noting only four copies in the United States (NY Acad. Med., U. Rochester, Huntington Lib., UCLA). [Attributes: First Edition]
