        Accuratissima Totius Africae Tabula

      Nurmberg. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 19 x 22.5". This beautiful map of Africa dates to around 1697 and offers fascinating detail within the largely unexplored interior of the continent. Pictorial mountains, snaking rivers, and small drawings of wildlife balance out the abundant labeling of ports on the coast that were well known to European traders. Typical of maps of this period, the prime meridian runs through Ferro Island. That this map relies more on impressions of the continent than on hard, factual evidence is reflected in the elaborate title cartouche in the bottom left, which illustrates the lifestyle and natural history of Africa as it was then known. In the center, a native chief stands under a parasol held by two other Africans in native dress. On the left, a woman nurses her baby in a hammock, while on the right, men on horseback enter into battle. More detailed wildlife include a lion, a snake, a lizard, and a fox. A key below the map explains the meaning of the colored regions. The map is a clean impression in excellent condition. Minor chips and staining to margins not affecting the image. Jacob von Sandrart (1630--1702) was a Nuremberg-based mapmaker and artist. His creativity brought him renown for his lush decoration and cartouches. This map of Africa is a beautiful example of his work.

        THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM HOGARTH. In a Series of one hundred and fifty Steel Engravings from teh original Pictures. With an Introductory Essay by James Hannay, and a Descriptive Letterpresses by Rev. J. Trusler and E.F. Roberts.

      William MackenzieOpera completa in sei volumi. Testo inglese. Cm.31x23. Pg.XVIII, 202 complessive, con numerazione consecutiva ai sei volumi. Legature seriali in tela editoriale bruna, con titoli e ricche impressioni decorative in oro, nero e rosso ai piatti, a raffigurare il busto dell'artista. Tagli in oro. Belle le 150 tavole su acciaio fuori testo, incise, sui più conosciuti dipinti di Hogarth, da J.Moore, J.Garner, T.E.Nicholson, C.Mottram, C.Armstrong, J.Mansell, E.Smith, S.Davenport, W.H.Worthington, F.Jordan, H.Fernell, A.Duncan, F.F.Walker, T.S.Englehearth, H.Adlard, T.Phillibrown, W.Radclyffe, J.Mollison, G.Presbury, J.Stubbs, J.Romney, E.Stalker, S.Bull, B.Holl, J.Mills, R.Hart, W.Shaw, R.Page, W.Chevalier, H.Setchell. Ogni tavola conserva la velina originale. Esemplare privo di fioriture. Eccellenti condizioni conservazione, fatti salvi minimi schiarimenti delle coperte agli angoli inferiori esterni. Alcune tavole, come sovente accade, sono collazionate fuori posto: segnatamenate "Hogarth painting the Comic House" compare all'antiporta del primo volume, "Morning" all'antiporta del terzo, "The Politician" all'antiporta del quinto, "The Shrimp Girl" e "The Milkmaid" all'antiporta del sesto, mentre "The Pieman" non appare nell'Indice. Le illustrazioni sono in realtà 148 perché le due tavole di "Tristam Shandy" e "Masquerades and Operas" con "Burlington Gate" sono in unica planche. Nei volumi sono raccolte le illustrazioni delle seguenti opere: "Marriage a - la - mode" (sei planches), "Industry and Idleness" (12 planches), "The Rake's Progress" (otto planches), "The Harlott's Progress" (sei tavole), "Times of the Day" (quattro planches), "The Election" (quattro tavole), "Beer Street and Gin Lane" (due tavole), "France and England" (due tavole), "The Four Stages of Cruelty" (quattro planches), "Hudibras" (12 planches), "Genre and Conversation Pictures" (25 planches), "Illustrations to Don Quixote" (sei planches), "Miscellaneous Pieces" (46 planches), "Four Tickets" (11 planches). Ogni tavola conservale veline originali. William Hogarth (1697 - 1764) fu non solo il più famoso pittore del Settecento inglese, ma anche il creatore di una scuola satirico - moralista anglosassone, dimostrando ai suoi concittadini che come strumento di satira il pennello o la matita sono più efficaci della penna. Dotato di forte personalità e di indiscutibile talento, introdusse nelle sue opere un piacevole e sferzante senso caricaturale che mise in ridicolo le follie, gli abusi, le stravaganze, le cattiverie della società anglosassone del suo tempo. Il presente "Complete Works", con tavole incise da grandi artisti dell'Ottocento inglese, raccoglie il "corpus" della sua produzione artistica, con accurati testi di riferimento ad opera di James Hannay (1827 - 1873) e John Trusler (1735 - 1820).

        Historie der inquisitie tot Goa. En in andere gewesten van Indien. Uyt het Frans vertaalt.

      - Amsterdam, Pieter Mortier, 1697.Sm.8vo. Contemporary vellum. With engraved title-vignette, 3 engraved vignettes and 6 engraved plates (3 folding). (12),282,(17) pp.* First Dutch edition; first published in French Relation de l'inquisition de Goa. Leiden 1687. - In 1668 Dellon sailed to India with the Compagnie des Indes. He travelled extensively along the Malabar coast. In 1673 he left the employment of the company and started a private medical practice in Damao, at that time a Portuguese colony. Six months later, early in 1674, he was arrested by the Inquisition and taken to Goa, where he was imprisoned for two years. He was then shiped to Lisbon, but released in the following year on condition that he should return immediately to France. . It proved a considerable success , particularly in Protestant Europe, where it ran to numerous editions. Although long regarded purely as a work of propaganda, recent research has testified to its accuracy (Howgego p.304/305). It includes also details of his stay in Bahia, Brazil. His account of the Inquisition was still forbidden in Portugal in 1769. - A nice copy.Cf. Borba de Moraes I, p.253-255; Sabin 19444-19447. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Milano, per Marc?'Antonio Pandolfo Malatesta, (1697). In-8 gr. (mm. 250x175), cartonato muto coevo, pp. 116,(20), ornato da grandi capilett. e finali silografati, con 4 belle tavv. f.t., inc. in rame da Scotti (rifilate), che raffigurano i due archi trionfali. Dedica ?"agl?'Ill.ssimi signori Vicario, e Sessanta Decurioni della detta città?". Relazione del solenne ingresso a Milano del nuovo arcivescovo, il cardinale Federico Caccia. Le autorità cittadine predisposero due grandi archi, nonostante la difficile situazione economica dello Stato milanese, oppresso dal fiscalismo spagnolo. I due archi, uno presso la Basilica di S. Eustorgio e l?'altro nella contrada dei Mercanti d?'oro (subito prima dell?'ingresso nella piazza del Duomo), furono opera dell?'arch. Giovan Battista Quadrio. Tutto l?'apparato allegorico degli archi, con le statue, le descrizioni e i dipinti, doveva rappresentare al nuovo arcivescovo la storia e la qualità della Chiesa milanese. I dipinti furono opera di due pittori: Federico Bianchi e Filippo Abbiati, entrambi molto importanti nella storia della pittura milanese. Autore della presente relazione fu un dotto milanese, Baldassarre Paravicini, segretario dei Decurioni della città. Dopo un?'ampia relazione sulla nomina di Federico Caccia a vescovo di Milano, si ricorda la sosta del cardinale, il 20 novembre 1696, nella città di Lodi poco prima del suo ingresso in Milano. A Lodi fu accolto da grandi feste, mentre a Milano fervevano i preparativi per l?'accoglienza. Il cardinale Caccia entrò in incognito a Milano il giorno 10 dicembre e prese dimora nell?'arcivescovado, essendo fissato per il giorno successivo l?'ingresso solenne. L?'11 dicembre il cardinale raggiunse in carrozza la chiesa di S. Eustorgio, dove vestì gli abiti pontificali e da dove prese inizio la lunghissima e solenne processione che lo accompagnò fino in Duomo. Mirabile fu l?'apparato esterno e interno del Duomo, dove, tra una colonna e l?'altra e in mezzo a preziosi drappeggi, erano stati esposti i grandi quadri con le storie di S. Carlo Borromeo. Importante e rara opera in "edizione originale". Cfr. Predari, p. 169: ?"La prefazione ha molto pregio per le erudite citazioni storiche di tutti i passi d?'autori che scrissero con lode di Milano?" - Arrigoni ?"Milano nelle vecchie stampe?",II,886, con descriz. e illustrazione di un arco trionfale. Esemplare su carta forte, molto ben conservato. ?"?"Il milanese Federico Caccia (1635-1699) non ebbe che due anni di tempo per esercitare effettivamente la sua funzione pastorale. Di lui si ricordano: il rinnovo di alcune disposizioni disciplinari relative ai conventi femmminili (1694 e 1697); la benedizione del ?'colosso?' di Arona; l?'insediamento in cattedrale della statua d?'argento dedicata a s. Ambrogio.. Nel 1697 ebbe l?'incarico della reggenza della città durante l?'assenza del governatore di Milano Don Filippo Guzman.. Il periodo del suo arcivescovato sembra distinguersi soprattutto per l?'impulso da lui dato alla edilizia religiosa e per l?'esercizio della carità verso i poveri, aperta o discreta, che culminò nelle disposizioni testamentarie con cui lasciò i poveri, eredi dell?'intero suo patrimonio?"?". Così Diz. Biograf. Italiani,XV, p. 754.

      A Paris Chez Christope Ballard. 1697 - 12mo (in 6s), 157 x 90 mms., pp. [xiv], 166 [167 - 1766 contents], woodcut of pantograph on page 8, contemporary calf, spine ornately gilt in compartments, morocco label; lacks leaves before title-page and after end of text, some minor marginal worming, joints cracked, top and base of spine worn, corners worn. A fair copy. First published in 1673 or 1674, Traite de Mignature proved to be very popular with aspiring artists, because of its detailed instructions on preparing paints and pigments. The first English translation appeared in 1729, The Art of Painting in Miniature. A diagram of a colour wheel was added to the edition published in 1708, making the work even more successful and useful. The attribution of the work to "Claude Boutet" was made by Joseph-Marie Quérard (1797-1865) in his his bibliographic dictionary, La France Litteraire (1826-1842), deriving from a pencil annotation of an edition of the work published in 1711.

        "The secret history of Whitehall. From the restoration of Charles II. Down to the abdication of the late K. James. Writ at the request of a noble Lord, and conveyed to him in letters, by ________ late Secretary-Interpreter to the Marquess of Louvois, who by that means had the perusal of all the private minutes between England and France for many years. The whole consisting of secret memoirs, which have hitherto lain conceal'd, as not being discoverable by any other hand. Published from the original papers."

      London: R. Baldwin. 1697. "First edition, small 8vo, pp. [14], 80, 80, 80, 64, 80, 110; contemporary paneled calf with tasteful modern rebacking and red morocco label on spine, extremities worn and boards a little splayed, but overall good and sound. Jones (fl. 1676-1720), a captain in the English royal regiment of dragoons, spent much of his time on the continent, where he became fluent in modern languages and was appointed to serve the Marquis of Louvois. Jones published many works in his lifetime, but The Secret History is chief among them. It ""consists of a series of letters purporting to have been written by Jones to an English peer between January 1676 and February 1689, and professes to divulge the secret diplomatic transactions that had passed between the English and French courts during the previous twenty years. Little reliance can, however, be placed on these pretensions"" (DNB). Wing J934."

        Theses Adversus Balth. Bekkerum Circa Operationes Daemonum in Libro, Quem Vocat Die Bezauberte Welt.

      Literis Hakianis, Wittenberg 1697 - Unbound pamphlet. Small quarto. (7 1/2 x 6 inches). (16) p. Sewn, paper backstrip. No wrappers. Title page serves as front wrapper. The printed text of a disputation delivered to the University of Wittenberg on November 6, 1697, by one Johannes Christianus Bremer. The text is essentially a refutation of some of the arguments presented by Balthasar Bekker in "Die Betoverde Weereld." Bremer seems to argue the existence of demons and of their power and influence in earthly affairs, and suggests that to reject this is ipso facto to deny the existance of angels, and also of God, and to plunge into unholy atheism. Extremely scarce. The full title reads "Theses adversus Balth. Bekkerum circa operationes Daemonum in libro, quem vocat Die Bezauberte Welt gravissime errantem directae quas placido eruditorum examini d. 6. Nov. a. 1697 subjicient praeses M. Andr.

      Halle, 1697 - Judicial and theological opinions (in Latin and German) regarding the controversial marriage in 1666 of the castrato and court favorite, Bartolomeo de Sorlisi, with a young Dresden girl, Dorothy Lichtwer. The discovery of the marriage, which had the blessing of Johann Georg II, Elector of Saxony, provoked a cry of outrage in many circles, including the Lutheran theological establishment as well many in the legal community, and Sorlisi soon became the unfortunate victim of much abuse and mockery. Upon his death in 1672, the marriage was adnnulled in 1672, but the firestorm of controversy which erupted did not abate for many years to come. So controversial was the Sorlisi-Lichter marriage, however, that EUNUCHI CONIUGIUM went through a total of nine editions, of which this is the second. Editions followed of 1718, 1730, 1737, and 1759. OCLC locates only four copies in the US of the first (Harvard, Harvard Law, NY Academy of Medicine, and UCLA); of this second edition, only one copy is found in the US (Harvard Law) Second edition (preceded by the first edition of 1685). 8vo.
