        White Hall / S. Pauls Cathedral

      Venice, c. 1696. Copper engraving, 43 x 27 cms, black and white, restoration to elaborate border dividing the two images (3 x 0.4 cms hole neatly closed), blank verso; from 'Isolario dell'Atlante Veneto', perhaps the last of the great Italian ‘island books’. If Coronelli’s St Paul’s differs somewhat from the cathedral we know, it’s worth bearing in mind that Wren’s building only came into use in 1697 and was officially completed in 1708.

A bound volume of six related, though distinct, theses of Medicine, with the 1st, 3rd & 4th attended under the direction of one of the most brilliant scientists of the era, Georg Wolfgang Wedel. However, the piece of distinction must be credited to that of Stahl, a protege of Wedel's at Jena who achieved his own place of prominence in the early 18th C scientific world both as a practicing physician and as a proponent of the 'anima' philosophy, of which blood circulation plays a key role. ". through his writings [he] became vastly influential. . [in fact, the DSB continues] Stahl influenced the whole of eighteenth-century medicine; and his imprint is being increasingly appreciated as historians trace his role in the drama of eighteenth-century medical thought." OCLC records only 1 institutional holding of this very early Stahl title on blood circulation, which was published in Halle while Stahl lectured at the University, and where he remained till 1715 until being called to court by Frederick William I of Prussia, to assume the position of court physician.

        A New Voyage to the East-Indies in the Year 1690 and 1691

      London: Daniel Dring,, 1696. Being a full Description of the Isles of Maldives, Cocos, Andamans, and the Isle of Ascension; and all the Forts and Garrisons now in possession of the French, with an Account of the Customs, Manners, and Habits of the Indians. By Monsieur Duquesne. To which is added, A New Description of the Canary Islands, Cape Verd, Senegal and Gambia &c. … Done into English from the Paris Edition. Octavo (164 × 104 mm) Contemporary sprinkled sheep, unlettered, double blind rules. 2 folding maps, and 5 engraved plates. A little rubbed, neatly rebacked and with some skillful restoration to the corners, light browning, slight stain to the fore-edge which does not carry to the margins, a very good copy. First editions in English. The first part is a translation of Pouchot de Chantassin's Relation du Voyage et Retour des Indes Orientales pendant les Années 1690 & 1691. Par un Garde de la Marine Servant sur le Bord de Monsieur Duquesne (Paris, 1692). His name is not given in this translation, but appears in the privilege to the French edition. "The author was employed in French factory posts set up in India, and travelled amongst the India Ocean Islands" (NMM). Pouchot's account of the fight "with fourteen Dutch and English ships" at Fort St. George (pp. 96–105) is contested by Dampier in A New Voyage, explaining that he feels obliged to relate the story (which was given to him by "the Gunner's Mate of Capt. Heath's Ship, a very sensible Man") because "there is such a plausible Story made of it in Captain Duquesne's Late Voyage to the East-Indies" (I, p. 522). Dampier describes a rather inconclusive and desultory engagement, with the Dutch and English "fleet" being an accidental gathering of heavily laden and under-armed merchantmen, rather than the well-organized force under two admirals portrayed in the French account published here. The second part is a translation of Le Maire's Les voyages du Sieur Le Maire aux îles Canaries, Cap-Verd, Sénégal et Gambie sous Monsieur Dancourt (1695). Le Maire was a surgeon with the Compagnie d'Afrique; his well-observed narrative contains probably the first account of the Canary Islands written by a visitor, and perhaps more importantly his work remains an key source for the study of 17th-century West Africa, interactions between Africans and Europeans, and aspects of the slave trade.

      29 March, 1696. A Vast, Visually Dramatic William III Document, With Original Pendant Seal in Pristine Condition. 495 x 705 mm (19 1/2 x 27 3/4"). 19 lines in a professional scribe's notarial hand. UPPER LEFT CORNER WITH A VERY LARGE ENGRAVED PORTRAIT OF THE KING (measuring approximately 240 x 220 mm., including its calligraphic surround), the first words of the document ("Gulielmus Tertius Dei") in large, bold, calligraphic letters across the full length of the document, and WITH A LOVELY SWIRLING ENGRAVED INHABITED ACANTHUS BORDER IN THE TOP MARGIN, incorporating a pheasant, a rampant lion, an eagle, a stork, and a unicorn. WITH THE LARGE ROYAL SEAL, measuring slightly more than 100 mm. in diameter, on its vellum thong at the bottom, the seal ENCASED IN ITS ORIGINAL PAPER WRAPPER (now adhering to the wax and fitting around its contours). The border decoration at the top and the final word of the first line of text trimmed off at the right (though the rest of the text intact), a bit of abrasion along folds and four small holes where folds intersect, very slight soiling, otherwise IN FINE CONDITION, the engraved decoration and written text rich and clear, the vellum bright and fresh, and the seal perfectly preserved. This superb royal document is an exemplification of recovery, a document used in the transfer of title to land. A "common recovery" was in essence a fake lawsuit in which all parties colluded to break entails, those conditions or stipulations that restricted the inheritance or transfer of a particular piece of land to certain individuals.The judgment of the court (usually the Court of Common Pleas) could be used to transfer the property as the parties wished. The exemplification, always a very attractive document featuring a portait of the monarch and the Great Seal, was an official copy of the court record that could be used to prove the title to the land. Until the mid-18th century, these documents were written in Latin using an archaic, and almost indecipherable, court hand. This exemplification concerns the recovery of lands in Beguildy, a small village seven miles northwest of Knighton in Radnorshire, South Wales; the principals involved are Hugh Lewis, Michael Taylor, and Morgan Vaughan. In addition to the Great Seal, our document sports a blue paper seal with an embossed version of the royal seal, most likely a revenue stamp denoting fees paid when the property was transferred. Because the paper wrapping around the royal seal now takes the shape of the contours of the impressions in the wax, we can see that the recto depicts a rampant lion and unicorn flanking a shield, with a crown above and a stylized "W" beneath, and the verso shows the monarch seated on a prancing horse, with the "W" floating behind his back. This appears to be the second seal of the king, used after Mary II died in 1694. It is difficult to find any large antiquarian royal wax seal in fine condition, and to encounter it, as here, encased in its original wrapper, is extraordinarily lucky.

        Le Nouveau Testament en Francois, avec des Reflexions Morales. In four volumes

      05 - Paris - Andre Pralard, 1696 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete and full leather set of this late seventeenth and early eighteenth-century New Testament in French. New Edition. Rather scarce in any condition and particularly pleasing to see in the original binding. 'Le Nouveau Testament en Francois, avec des reflexions morales sur chaque verset, pour en rendre la lecture plus utile, & la meditation plus aisee (nouvelle edition augmente, imprime par L'ordre de Monseigneur L'Evesque et Comte de Chaalons, Pair de France)'. 'The New Testament in French, with moral reflections on each verse, to make the reading more useful, & meditation easier (new expanded edition, printed by order of Bishop L' Evesque and Count of Chaalons, Peer of France)'. Volume I features an engraved frontispiece. Withvignettes to the titlepages and headpieces to several pages. With the armorial bookplate of the Bibliotheca Lindesiana to the front pastedowns of Volumes II-IV. The Bibliotheca Lindesiana noble library is distinguished not only because of the remarkable collection formed, but because its dispersal began ninety-five years ago and it no longer exists. The library's origins may be said to go back to the late sixteenth century with the establishment of the Lindsay family at Balcarres in Fife by Lord Menmuir, whose bibliophilic son David, the first Lord Balcarres, augmented it to a position of distinction among Scottish libraries. Complete in four volumes. Condition: In full speckled calf bindings. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Several joints starting but firm. Some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Some scattered light foxing. Red wax marks to the front endpapers of Volume I which has caused the front free endpaper to partially stick to the front pastedown. Ink signatures to front free endpapers of Volume II and IV, and first blank of Volume III. Overall: GOOD..

        [Normandy] Le Duché et Gouvernement de Normandie divisée en Haute et Basse Normandie en divers Pays; et par evêchez, avec le Gouvernement General du Havre de Grace

      Paris: Alexis Hubert Jaillot, 1696. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gold embellishments, in excellent condition. 24 3/8 x 37 ¼ inches. A highly decorative map of Normandy by Alexis Jaillot, an exceptional example with gilt embellishments 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 continued to publish his maps and atlases under Sanson's title. This stunning map of Normandy is based on Sanson's map published in 1650, but was redrawn and enlarged by Jaillot. It shows the provinces of Normandy as well as the northern tip of Brittany and part of the English Channel. Both Jersey and Guernsey are included as is Mont St. Michel off the coast of St. Malo. In keeping with all of Sanson's and Jaillot's superb maps, forests, rivers, and towns are meticulously identified and named. The map includes an ornate cartouche in the upper section as well as a scale and key. Tooley, Maps & Map-Makers, pp. 40-41.

A superb map of Brittany by Nicolas Sanson, the leading map maker during the golden age of French cartography.

Frankfurt und Leipzig, in Verlag J. Wiedemeyern, 1696. 8:o. (4),356 s. Samtida trevligt ngt nött stänkdekorerat skinnbd med upphöjda bind, rikt blinddekorerad rygg och spår av äldre handskriven etikett nedtill på ryggen. Stänkta snitt. Ryggen med några nötningsmärken, bl.a. på titelfältet. Främre pärmens insida med spår av gammal auktionsetikett. Någon enstaka småfläck, t.ex. på s. 52-53 i det andra arbetet. Med namnteckning "Carolus Adolphus" på titelbladet och Säfstaholms litograferade exlibris samt Bengt Löws namnteckning i blyerts.. VD17 3:307355F respektive 23:242497S. Johann Wiedemeyer i Lübeck var även förläggare till det första arbetet. Den inledande pagineringsföljden i det första arbetet, "Fabularum Phædri paraphrasis", hör egentligen till det andra arbetet. Med graverat porträtt av utgivaren, teologen och författaren Daniel Hartnack (1642-1708). Den "Carolus Adolphus" som skrivit sin namnteckning på titelbladet är identisk med Carl Adolf Gyllenstierna (1699-1733), son till Christoffer Gyllenstierna och prinsessan Katarina av Pfalz, den sistnämnda i sin tur dotter till Karl X Gustavs bror Adolf Johan av Pfalz och Elsa Elisabet Brahe. Carl Adolf Gyllenstierna var därmed syssling till Karl XII och sannolikt använde han sig av signaturen "Carolus Adolphus" för att framhäva sin kungliga börd. Gyllenstierna blev lagman på Gotland och mördades i Karlskrona av Vilhelm Krassow. De flesta böcker som synts till på marknaden verkar ha varit skolböcker från hans ungdom. Hela eller delar av hans bibliotek tycks ha hamnat i det Bondeska släktbiblioteket på Säfstaholm, möjligen genom arv till hans halvsyster Maria Gustafva Gyllenstierna (1672-1737), gift med Carl Bonde. Då det finns spår av en gammal auktionsetikett kan det tänkas att de var ämnade för auktion och att hon antingen förvärvade dem före eller på denna

        Bespiegelingen Over Godswysheid In't Bestier de Schepselen en Eerkroon voor de Caab de Goede Hoop.

      Jan de Marre (1696-1763) was a commander of a Dutch East India Company ship. He first joined the company at the age of 13, and achieved the rank of commander in 1728. He retired from the Company in 1732, and moved on to a career of writing and of directing a theatre company, among other interests.  This volume, in Dutch, remains in an intact original binding in good plus condition with near fine contents. The half leather binding features decorative gilt spine bands and leather corners over speckled paper boards with red-speckled page edges.  The binding is sound and square with wear at the corners, abrasions to the rear board, and overall wear and some cracking to the spine.  The contents are bright and surprisingly clean, with very mild toning and occasional light spotting confined to the page edges. There are two engraved title vignettes and one engraved portrait of the author.  All in all an extremely nice copy of this scarce work.

      Amsterdam: P. Schenk, 1696. Copper-engraved map, full period hand colouring. 21 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches. Lovely 17th century map of North and South America with California as an island. This elegant map is noted for its cartouches designed by Romein de Hooghe. "The most notable feature of this map is the two separate titles for North and South America. These, it is believed, are etched by the noted artist Romein de Hooghe. The cartography reflects that typical of the period for Amsterdam.

        Abissinia doue sono le Fonti del Nilo [...]

      Venice, c. 1696. Map. Copper engraving, 45.5 x 61 cms, black and white, closed centrefold split, slight paper thinning, blank verso. Map of East Africa prepared for Coronelli's monumental 13 volume Atlante Veneto, published 1690-96 in continuation of Blaeu's Atlas Major. Coronelli credits earlier Portugese Jesuit authorities (Manuel de Almeida, Affonso Mendez, Pedro Páez, and Jerónimo Lobo) but also the contemporary German scholar Hiob Ludolf, the foremost expert of his day on Abyssinia. Ludolf compiled the first Ethiopian dictionary and grammar and discounted the traditional Ptolemaic lakes of Zaire and Zaflan (still shown by Coronelli in the inset) becoming the first to show the course and source of the Blue Nile at Lake Tana in his map of 1683. Franciscan scholar Vincenzo Coronelli (he was also an accomplished theologian) was among the leading map and globe makers of his age, making full and innovative use of the latest geographical information. A brief spell in Paris, for example, as cartographer to Louis XIV between 1681-83, gave him access to original material in the French archives including material gathered by Jesuit travellers such as La Salle. In 1684, back in his home city of Venice, Coronelli founded the first geographical society, the Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, and in 1685 he was appointed Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. He is noted for the quality of composition and engraving of his maps, as well as their content.

A very dramatic depiction of the sea batlle of the Sound (Öresund) between the swedish and dutch fleets in 1658. The dutch came to rescue the danish from the newly gained swedish control of Denmark and the siege of Copenhagen, and they suceeded. The swedish fleet was badly damaged and Denmark west of the Sound was saved, while the danish provinces east of the sound remained under swedish control. The border between Sweden and Denmark has ever since then been the Sound. The legend names the Swedish Ships involved in the sea-battle. Some of them are: Caesar, Apollo, Ceruus, Westerwijk, Amarantha, Cignus, Luna Dimidiata, Fides, Wismaria, Sudermannia and Ostrogothia. In the distance, can be seen, the fortification of Kronborg and the towns of Helsingör and Helsingborg.

        Il Lazio con le sue più cospicue strade antiche e moderne..

      Acquaforte e bulino, 1696. Magnifica prova, intagliata su quattro matrici, impressa su carta vergata coeva ed unita. Esemplare con coloritura coeva dei contorni, con margini, leggere ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dopo aver accuratamente seguito il progetto per l?ampliamento e la sistemazione di Roma, papa Alessandro VII (Fabio Chigi) affida l?incarico di formare il catasto dell?Agro Romano a diversi topografi ed agronomi, conferendo al gesuita Francesco Eschinardi il compito di dirigere la parte cartografica. Il rilievo migliore, oltre a quello di Giovan Battista Cingolani, fu opera dell?Ameti, che realizzò due grandi carte della parte settentrionale e meridionale della provincia di Roma. L?opera si basa sostanzialmente sulla carta che il monaco camaldolese Innocenzo Mattei (1626-79), geografo pontificio sotto Clemente X, realizzò nel 1666. Rispetto alla Tavola esatta dell?antico Latio e Nova Campagna di Roma del Mattei, il rilievo dell?Ameti rivela fondamentali analogie in tutti gli elementi del contenuto, compresi i riferimenti all?età classica, alle strade ecc., mentre sono aggiunte diverse piccole località, e differenze più notevoli sono riscontrabili per la zona costiera e sub costiera. La carta del Lazio, dedicata al cardinale Pietro Ottoboni, è anteriore di tre anni e presenta notevoli migliorie nel rilievo delle Paludi Pontine, dove anche l?idrografia è notevolmente diversa. Le carte dell?Ameti furono inserite, assieme a quella del Mattei, nella seconda edizione del Mercurio Geografico, atlante della tipografia De Rossi. Bibliografia: Frutaz, Le carte del Lazio, pp. 75-77; Almagià, Documenti Cartografici dello Stato Pontificio, pp. 40-42, 73. Dimensioni 1130x835. Once he had realized his project to renovate and enlarge Rome, Pope Alexander VII (Fabio Chigi) charged quite a few topographers and agronomists to realize the Roman countryiside land registry, putting the Jesuit Francesco Eschinardi in charge of the cartographic part. The best maps have been drawn by Giovan Battista Cingolati and Ameti, who realized two big size maps of the Northern and Southern neighbourhood of Rome. As Almagià points out, the two maps could be joined to form just one print, since they share a part where the river Tiber and Rome are depicted. This work is basically after Innocenzo Mattei?s (1626-79), a Camaldolese monk, who was official geographer of Clemente X and realized his work in 1666. When compared to Mattei?s Tavola esatta dell?antico Latio e Nova Campagna di Roma, Ameti?s work shows many analogies in different fields: classical references, the names of the streets, etc. It differs from its sources on the addiction of new places, especially along the coasts. The first map (St. Peter?s Heritage) presents a big cartouche on upper left, with the date, 1691, and the printer?s name, Domenico de Rossi, together with dedication to the Cardinal Francesco Nerli. The description of the territory is quite detailed, with wods, heights, the small towns and the lakes of Bolsena, Bracciano and Orbetello. The map of Latium, dedicated to the Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni, has been printed three years before and presents a better relief of the Pontine marshes, and even the hydrography is quite different. Ameti?s map have been included, together with Mattei?s, in the second edition of De Rossi?s Mercurio Geografico. Copperplates, realized in four plates each, joined together in the past, with the technique of etching. Example in excellent condition, trimmed to platemark; sings of glue along the old folds.

      Leiden and Utrecht: Pieter vander Aa and Francois Halma 1696. 2 volumes. Folio (460 x 300mm). With engraved title and 243 plates. Contemporary blind-stamped vellum with central floral motif, held within blind ruled borders. First edition and a fine Large Paper copy printed on heavier paper of this extraordinary florilegium. Abraham Munting (1626-1683) was professor of botany at the University of Groningen and considerably enlarged the botanical garden his father Henricus Munting had founded. It was known as the "Paradise of Groningen" and became one of the most extensive gardens of the period. During the summer Munting gave botanical lectures to his students four times a week. It was in this beautiful garden that his daughter Hester died eating deadly nightshade. The above work portrays plants growing in Munting's "Paradise". His numerous botanical friends had sent the seeds of many of these plants to him from the Dutch East- and West Indies, Africa and the Americas. "Munting wrote a number of works on medical-botanical topics, but his posthumously published 'opus magnum', the 'Naauwkeurige', enjoyed particular success, at least in part due to the novelty of the plates, which in a radical departure from the iconography of the traditional florilegium, presented its plant species against a charming series of landscape backgrounds? The illustrations are remarkable for their elegance and originality. The sophisticated title-page? was designed by an artist of considerable merit, Jan Goeree (1670-1731), who had been a student of Gérard de Laresse? Each plate shows a different plant in flower, including many exotic species from America and other distant lands. The plant dominates the foreground, filling the entire page, often with a detail of the fruit or flower presented on a smaller scale. In some cases the plants are presented 'à trompe l'oeil', while in others they have been arranged in decorated urns. Sometimes gardening tools are depicted as well. The name of each plant appears written on an elegantly fluttering ribbon or cartouche, or on a crumbling marble plaque" (An Oak Spring Flora, 45). Only plate 201 is signed, bearing the name of Joseph Mulder (1659-1710) who engraved many of the plates of Maria Sibylla Merian's famous work on the insects of Surinam. Nissen BBI, 1429; Pritzel 6559.
