        Nuova Guinea. Het Niew Hollandt. [Map of Northern Australia, Borneo, Indonesia and New Guinea].

      (circa1697]. Black and white map, ornate initial letter and double columns of text in Italian below and on the reverse. Sheet size 49.2 x 35cm, map size 24.5 x 27.4/30cm.The map was first published in 1688 as a gore sheet, a map with curved edges, which together with other similarly shaped sheets, designed to be pasted together around a base to form a globe. It is probable that this sheet is from Cornonelli's "Isolario descrittione geographico-historica, sacro-profano, antico-moderna, politica, naturale e poetica..." which was published in Venice in 1696-1697 Very good copy. Tooley 352. Coronelli is particularly famous for his construction of terrestrial and celestial globes. His most famous globes were a large pair he made for Louis XIV. Coronelli's talents were many. Born the son of a tailor in 1650, by the time of his death in 1718, he was a highly regarded theologian, mathematician and cartographer as well as having risen through the Franciscan order to become General of the Order. Over his career he produced over 500 maps and globes and founded Academia Cosmografica degli Argonauti the first geographical society.This gore sheet shows Northern Australia (from the Kimberley to the coast beyond Arnhem Land) with delightful depictions of an elephant, deer and other unlikely images of the land and its inhabitants. An important map of northern Australia, this map also offers a very interesting depiction of the section of Southeast Asia from Borneo's east coast to the western part of New Guinea, together with the islands of south-east Indonesia.

        Parte Occidentale del Mediterraneo... /Carta Maritima della parte orientale del Mare Mediterraneo

      1697. "Due grandi portolani del Mediterraneo, uno dedicato alla parte occidentale, l'altro a quella orientale, del capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, qui nell'edizione di Vincenzo Maria Coronelli. I due portolani di Levanto, furono pubblicati ad apertura de ""Lo specchio del mare"", atlante-portolano del Mediterraneo pubblicato nella sua prima edizione a Genova nel 1664 ed in seconda edizione nel 1679. Nonostante l'opera non avesse avuto grande fortuna all'epoca, forse perché riconosciuta come poco originale dai cartografi coevi, il Coronelli - che quasi certamente non conosceva il modello e le derivazioni nordiche - la volle inserire nel suo Atlante Veneto, come ultimo volume dell'edizione del 1698. Il cartiglio della parte occidentale reca la dedicata al conte Fabrizio Antonio Monsignani, erudito forlivese e membro dell'Accademia dei Filergiti. Ciascun portolano, misura mm 510 x 402. Splendidi esemplari, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Ottimi esemplari, bella impressione, fogli completi dei margini bianchi, in perfetto stato di conservazione." "Two large maps of Mediterranea sea - one for the western area and one for the eastern area, prepared in the Portolano style, by Francesco Maria Levanto, in the edition by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli. The two Levanto's maps, were published in his ""Lo Specchio del Mare"" (The Mirror of the Sea) the portolan atlas of Mediterranean published in its first edition in Genoa in 1664 ,and the second edition in 1679. Despite the atlas didn't has a great success at the time, perhaps because it was recognized as unoriginal by contemporary cartographers, Coronelli - who almost certainly did not know the model and the Nordic plates - wanted to include the atlas as the last volume in the 1698 edition of his Atlante Veneto. The cartouche of the western part bears the dedicated to Count Fabrizio Antonio Monsignani, a member of the Academy of Filergiti. Each plater, consisting of two sheets joined together, measuring 510 x 402 mm. Magnificient examples, in perfect condition." Venezia Venice

      Artist: Anville d Jean Babtiste ( - 1782 ) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: 1763 1697 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Folds perfectly restored; size in cm : 53,5 x 76 - description: Map shos the old world (Africa, Asia and Europe) with a decorative title cartouche. - Vita of the artist: Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697 ?1782), was both a geographer and cartographer who greatly improved the standards of map-making. His maps of ancient geography, characterized by careful, accurate work and based largely on original research, are especially valuable. He left unknown areas of continents blank and noted doubtful information as such; compared to the lavish maps of his predecessors, his maps looked empty. His first serious map, that of Ancient Greece, was published when he was fifteen. At the age of twenty-two, he was appointed one the king's geographers, and began to attract the attention of first authorities. D'Anville's studies embraced everything of geographical nature in the world's literature, as far as he could muster it: for this purpose, he not only searched ancient and modern historians, travelers and narrators of every description, but also poets, orators and philosophers. One of his cherished subjects was to reform geography by putting an end to the blind copying of older maps, by testing the commonly accepted positions of places through a rigorous examination of all the descriptive authority, and by excluding from cartography every name inadequately supported.

Engraved portrait of Pindar and large title page vignette by M. Burghers. Pindar Π?νδαρος (c. 522 – c. 443 BC) was an Ancient Greek lyric poet from Thebes. Of the canonical nine lyric poets of ancient Greece, his work is the best preserved. Although he probably spoke Boeotian Greek he composed in a literary language that tended to rely more on the Doric dialect . There is an admixture of other dialects, especially Aeolic and epic forms, and an occasional use of some Boeotian words. He composed 'choral' songs. Scholars at the Library of Alexandria collected his compositions in seventeen books organized according to genre: 1 book of Humnoi – "hymns" 1 book of Paianes – "paeans" 2 books of Dithuramboi – "dithyrambs" 2 books of Prosodia – "processionals" 3 books of Parthenia – "songs for maidens" 2 books of Huporchemata – "songs for light dances" 1 book of Enkomia – "songs of praise" 1 book of Threnoi – "laments" 4 books of Epinikia – "victory odes" Of this vast and varied corpus, only the Epinikia – odes written to commemorate athletic victories – survive in complete form; the rest survive only by quotations in other ancient authors. PHLEGON, of Tralles in Asia Minor, Greek writer and freedman of the emperor Hadrian, flourished in the 2nd century A.D. His chief work was the Olympiads, an historical compendium in sixteen books, from the 1st down to the 229th Olympiad (776 B.C. to A.D. 137), of which several chapters are preserved in Photius and Syncellus. Two small works by him are extant: On Marvels, containing some ridiculous stories about prophecies and monstrous births, but instructive as regards ancient superstitions; On Long-lived Persons, a list of Italians who had passed the age of 100, taken from the Roman censuses. Other works ascribed to Phlegon by Suïdas are a description of Sicily, a work on the Roman festivals in three books, and a topography of Rome. Graesse 5 p295; Brunet 4 p659; Dibdin II 289.

He practiced medicine before getting a license, but enrolled later at the University of Glasgow and received his M.D. degree in 1745. After training in obstetrics in London and Paris, he opened a practice in London and began teaching. He invented a "machine", an obstetrical manikin, for instructions. Smellie described the mechanism of labour, designed obstetrical forceps, devised a maneuver to deliver the head of a breech, and published his teachings. He is believed to have painted his own portrait. Use of forceps by W.Smellie The William Smellie Memorial Hospital which provided maternity services in Lanark closed in the early 1990s and was re-located to a unit at the Law Hospital in Carluke. This was also closed recently and maternity services moved to Wishaw General Hospital. It has been alleged that Smellie was involved with either murdering or showing a callous disregard for where his corpses came from (as well as his former pupil William Hunter,and brother John Hunter). The supporting evidence for this theory includes the large number of pregnant corpses Hunter was able to obtain. However, this is widely contested by scholars, and so the debate continues. The tomb in which William Smellie (and later his wife) was buried still stands in the St. Kentigerns section of the state run Lanark graveyard. (Wikipedia).
