LE COMTE, Louis, S.J. (1655-1728). -
Amsterdam, Desbordes & Schelte, 1698. 2 vols in 1. Small 8vo. Contemp. calf, slightly rubbed, corners repaired. With a portrait, 20 engraved plates (3 folding), and a folding table. (16), 342 pp.; (4), 355 pp.; some mild damp stains here and there; old name on title. Le Comte went to China in 1688. The present work is «a compilation of various letters addressed to French savants that brought China before a wide public and helped to spread sinophilism throughout Europe. Its popularity was immediate... Le Comte's contribution to the study of China consisted essentially of observing geography, dress, customs and culture, and his book contains the first coherent criticism of Chinese architecture. The description of the Beijing astronomical observatory and Ferdinand Verbiest's instruments are partly based on the author's observations in situ...» [Löwendhal, China, 214 and 226]. Cordier, Bibl. Sinica, I, 40 (1st edn. of 1696). L'autore visitò la Cina nel 1688 e queste sue memorie, che si basano su osservazioni di prima mano, ebbero molto successo. Con un ritratto, 20 tavole f.t. inc. in rame (3 ripiegate), e una tabella ripiegata. Legatura coeva in pelle maculata con lievi tracce d'uso, angoli restaurati; trascurabili tracce d'umidità; antico nome sul frontespizio.

- Kol. Kupferstich aus "Nürnbergische Hesperiden" von J.C. Volkamer, um 1710, 30 x 19 cm. Johann Christoph Volkamer (1644 - 1720) war ein Nürnberger Kaufmann und Botaniker, der im Stadtteil Gostenhof einen Garten unterhielt. Seine Leidenschaft galt den Zitrusfrüchten. 1708 veröffentlichte er ein Werk mit 115 Kupferstichen, die "Nürnbergischen Hesperiden". Einzigartig sind die hochformatigen Darstellungen durch die Verbindung der botanischen Darstellungen mit Ansichten der Stadt Nürnberg. Besonders wertvoll sind die Darstellungen von heute beschädigten oder zerstörten Objekten, von denen sonst keine historische Ansicht vorhanden ist. Die "Hesperiden" sind deshalb eine geschichtliche Quelle ersten Ranges. - Oben gering wasserrandig.

nuouamente publicato dal padre maestro Coronelli... Dedicato all'illustrissimo... Dedicato all'illustrissimo... don Pietro Manuel Colon de Portugal...1698. in-folio (mm 490x343), grande frontespizio allegorico con titolo manoscritto nello scudo bianco, titolo a stampa, pp. (4 con Dedica), 138 di testo ma con gran numero di silografie raffiguranti porti, rade, profili altimetrici e vedute di città marine, completo delle 25 tavole a doppia pagina f.t. Legatura coeva in pelle moucheté, titolo e fregi oro al dorso (abilmente restaurato). Come spesso accadeva il Coronelli aggiungeva alcune tavole in base alla propria disponibilità. L'esemplare è quindi arricchito da due tavole allegoriche degli "Argonauti", una tavola a doppia pagina raffigurante l'Allegoria di Venezia trionfante, con scene di battaglia sullo sfondo; altra allegoria degli Argonauti con strumenti di navigazione, allegoria tratta dal Corso Geografico Universale, ritratto di Innocenzo XII, quattro tavole delle rose dei venti e strumenti. Si tratta dell'ultimo volume, in ordine di data, della raccolta dell'Atlante Veneto: ristampa della "Prima parte dello specchio del mare" opera pubblicata a Genova nel 1664 e poi appunto ristampata da Coronelli nel 1698 con piccole variazioni nel testo e correzioni alle carte. Nel titolo si accenna anche ad una seconda parte e ad un indice di cui però non si trova traccia in nessuno degli esemplari noti. Poco si conosce sul capitano genovese Francesco Maria Levanto, che "a sue spese" fece incidere le più accreditate carte nautiche disponibili sul bacino del Mediterraneo dell'epoca. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Copperplate engraving / etching with contemporary hand colouring on hand laid paper. Description: Published by Pieter Schenk c. 1698.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Nicolaes Visscher' after 'Pieter Schenk'. The Visscher family were art and map dealers in Amsterdam during the 17th century. Funded by C. J. Visscher (1587-1652), the business was continued by his son and grandson both named Nicolas. Nicolas Visscher I was born 1618 in Wenns, Austria. He died 1679 in Linz. After the death of Nicolas II, his widow passed the business to Pieter Schenk.

Although they produced some original maps, most of their atlases consisted of printings from revised and re-worked plates originally by Jansson, the Visschers, the Sansons and others.

HENNEPIN, Louis (1640-?1705).
London: Printed for M. Bentley, J. Tonson, H. Bonwick, T. Goodwin, and S. Manship, 1698. 2 volumes in one (7 2/8 x 4 2/8 inches). 2 large engraved folding maps (laid down on heavier but old stock), engraved frontispiece to volume one, 6 engraved folding plates (laid down as above) (browned and spotted throughout). Modern panelled calf antique. THE FIRST DEPICTION OF NIAGARA FALLS Second English edition, considered typographically superior to the first, and first published in French in 1697. Two English editions were printed in 1698, this edition is has the first line of the printers on the title-page ending in "Tonson", and has alterations to the page numbers on the plates. An important but much decried account of Hennepin's travels in what is now the United States and Canada, including his probably fictitious description of his voyage down, and up, the Mississippi. One of the two plates is the first depiction of the Niagara Falls. Hennepin made two voyages to the New World, the first was on the same boat as the explorer René-Robert Cavalier de La Salle, arriving in Quebec in 1675. The following year he traveled to Fort Frontenac (now Kingston) on Lake Ontario and helped establish a mission there. In 1678 Hennepin was reassigned to Quebec and in November of that year accompanied La Salle on his exploration into the Great Lakes region. Hennepin accompanied Accault on an exploratory expedition of the Mississippi valley, and was taken prisoner by the Sioux. Rescued in 1681 by a small party of French explorers led by Daniel Greylsolon, sieur du Lhut, he returned to France … [Click Below for Full Description]
