         Fine large half-length engraving of this important choreographer and dancing master by François Chereau (1680-1729) after Robert Tournières (1667-1752)

      Paris 1700 - Pécour is depicted seated at a table with an open book of dances in Feuillet notation. 419 x 294 mm. to platemark.Slightly browned, most noticeably to mount; minor remnants of tape to verso. In very good condition overall. Credited with 120 original choreographies, most for the theatre but many for social dancing, "[Pécour] was one of the finest dancers working under the celebrated royal choreographer Pierre Beauchamp. He is said in one source to have made his début as a dancer in a repeat performance of Lully's Cadmus et Hermione in 1674. When, on Lully's death in 1687, Beauchamp left the Opéra, Pécour was appointed in his place. He gave up dancing in about 1703 but he held the post of ballet-master and choreographer at the Opéra until his death. His tutelage produced such outstanding dancers as La Fontaine, Subligny, Guiot, Prevost and Menese among the women and Blondy, Ballon, Dumoulin and Marcel among the men. He is credited with changing the 'S' figure of the Minuet to a 'Z', an innovation that helped keep the dancers in a proper relationship to each other and to the figure." Meredith Ellis Little in Grove Music Online.

         Essai sur les intérets du commerce maritime.The Hague, 1754. 12mo. With a small woodcut illustrations on title-page, numerous fine woodcut head- and tailpieces, and a letterpress folding table. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine with the monogram ("BB") of the Bibliotheque Bignon, gold-tooled board edges.

      Barbier II, col. 259; Einaudi 4196; Kress 5376; Sabin 31236; for the monogram: Olivier 870, no. 8. First edition of a study on the profits of maritime trade and commerce by Pierre André O'Heguerty (1700-1763), a Breton economist and maritime expert. The work is largely based on his own experiences, as he, since his marriage, owned a large coffee plantation on the island of Bourbon. During his stay there, O'Heguerty started to collect documents on maritime commerce. When his wife died in 1745, he returned to France, and published several books on this topic. The essay can be seen as a plea to the French Government, to promote maritime trade and commerce with the French colonies, instead of allowing foreigners to take away the profits.The binding contains the monogram "BB". Olivier shows this tool as the monogram of the prolific author Jean Paul Bignon, Abbé de St. Quentin, royal librarian and assiduous book collector. Bignon, however, died in 1743, eleven years before the publication of the present book. So it must be one of his descendants, who are also known book collectors.Internally in very good condition. Some minor damage to the hinges and the mottling has resulted in some damage to the boards, but the bindings is still firm and the tooling on the spine still clear.

      Amsterdam, Henricum Wetstenium [Heinrich Wetstein], 1700. - 53, [11], 805, [111] S., mit Titelkupfer u. 13 weiteren Taf., davon 3 eingefalt., 8°, Leder d. Zt. mit blindgepr. Rücken u. mit 5 Bünden Der aus Kaiserslautern stammende Johannes Braun (Braunius; 1628-1708) lehrte ab 1680 Theologie u. Hebräisch in Groningen. Er war ein Schüler des Föderaltheologen Johannes Coccejus. Die von beiden vertretene theologische Richtung in der Reformation geht auf Ulrich Zwingli u. wahrscheinlich auf die Wiedertäufer zurück. Ihr Grundgedanke ist, dass der Bund des Alten Testamentes, den Gott mit Adam u. Noah schloss, erneuert mit Abraham u. Mose, im Neuen Testament seine Fortsetzung fände. - Vorliegendes Werk ist ein frühe Arbeit über jüdische u. ägyptische Kulte mit interessanten Illustrationen. Das Bild des Moloch (S.476) ist die neugestochene Kopie einer Abb. die schon bei Athanasius Kirchner (Oedipus Aegyptiacus, Rom 1652) erschien. Das schöne allegorische Titelkupfer wurde nach Ph. Tiedeman graviert. Nach Einleitung u. Index werden beteiligten Schüler genannt. Es folgen die "5 Bücher": De Apostolorum epistolis ad quos scriptae sint; De septimo sigillo; De sanctitate summi Pontificis; De Thammuz Ezech. VIII, XIV; Exercitationes variae. Die letzten 111 S. bilden einen umfangreichen Index. - Einband leicht berieben; Vorsatz mit kl. überzeichneten Besitzervermerk; das Papier etwas gebräunt; das Titelkupfer geknickt u. angerändert; eine Taf. im Rand hinterlegt; eine Taf. lose. Dem Alter entsprechend ein gutes bis sehr gutes Expl. [Concerning the age a good copy. Complete].

         Pharmacia Antverpiensis Galeno-chymica.Antwerp, Joris Willemsens I, 1660 [engraved title-page 1661]. With engraved title-page by Petrus van Caukercken after Abraham van Diepenbeeck With: [JOCQUET, Joannes, and others]. [engraved title-page:] Pharmacopoeia Bruxellensis: .Brussels, Jan Mommaert II, 1641. With engraved title-page by Cornelius Galle the elder after Anthonis Sallaert. 2 editions in 1 volume. 4to. Brown calf (ca. 1700?).

      - Daems & Vandewiele, Noord- en Zuidned. stedelijke pharmacopeeën, pp. 62-63 (5 copies) & 70-71 (7 copies); STCV 12879911 (5 copies incl. 1 defective) & 12879890 (4 copies, incl. 1 lacking title-page). First (and in the case of Antwerp only) editions, in Latin, of the first and only official pharmacopoeias for Brussels and Antwerp, containing hundreds of medicinal recipes and throwing a great deal of light on 17th-century medical practice in the Low Countries. The Antwerp work's separate part with the title "Selectiora chymica" shows the rising importance of chemistry in the production of medicines. In 1624 the magistrates of Antwerp set up a Collegium Medicum, which did declare that medicines were to be prepared following Cordus until further notice. Brussels had begun to discuss plans to establish a Collegium Medicum already ca. 1605, but failed to do so. A 1636 plague gave city magistrates the impetus to compile a pharmacopoeia, however, and they commissioned four leading city physicians to compile the present Brussels pharmacopoeia, which appeared in 1641. In 1659 the Antwerp Collegium Medicum decided to produce their own official pharmacopoeia.With a 5-line presentation inscription on the flyleaf from the principal compiler of the Antwerp pharmacopoeia, Michiel Boudewijns to St Bernard's Abbey in Hemiksem, south of Antwerp, undated, but clearly between 1661 and Boudewijn's death in 1681. With an occasional correction in an early hand, an inscription at the end of the Brussels work by Godefridus Bouvaert (1685-1770), and the bookplate of Oscar van Schoor (1873-1936) on pastedown. Second work browned with occasional small marginal tears or spots, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is rubbed, with some mostly superficial cracks in the spine and hinges, but remains structurally sound. Two important pharmacopoeias with a remarkable provenance.

         Explicatio casuum reservatorum in Soc. Iesu (Instructio catechetica tyronum Soc. Iesu - Quae sunt domus probationis- Quae virtutes magistro scholae sunt necessariae - De lectione librorum - De fundamentis quibus novello religioso immobiliter utendum est [with other material] - Tentationes contra regulas - Praxis recollectionis menstruae)ff. [84] manuscript on paper written in brown ink, 27 lines to a full page, stitched in a re-used German blind-stamped limp pigskin (lining removed) wrapper, upper cover with Melanchthon, lower cover with figure of Justicia, trimmed at edgesI.N.I. Meditatio proemialis seu dispositio ad obeunda bene Exercitia. ff. [62] (paginated 273-396, the last page blank) manuscript on paper written in brown ink, 30 lines

      [ca.1700-1780] - As may be seen from the title statement the first manuscript, dating probably from late 17th or early 18th century, and written in Germany, is primarily concerned with Jesuit governance and constitution. The first section on Reserved Cases (ff. 1-15r) is concerned with special categories of confession, and refers on f.13r to the tenth Congregatio generalis of 1652. The other sections discuss the nature and history of the Jesuits, the types of Jesuit house and the organisation of these, as well as the necessity of monthly retreats and various matters appertaining to the education of a prospective Jesuit, including the discussion of what is necessary for the master of the school. Drama is briefly touched on, how it should be carefully overseen and performed 'cum modico sumptu et apparatu sine musica, sine choreis, sine machinis, ac luminibus, neque ultra horam' (at a modest cost and modest sets, without music, singing, gadgets, lights, and not too long'). Here we have the section devoted to reading, the importance of annotation, and the exercise of writing. The second manuscript is a series of meditations in Latin on the Exercitia spiritualia of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society, and the foundation document of Jesuit spirituality. Originally written in Spanish the work was translated into Latin and printed first in Rome by Blado in 1548. There are many editions and many translations. It is a book which has had an enormous influence both spiritual and historical. The third manuscript is again spiritual in nature and is written in the first person 'Omne peccatum grave velut a facie colubri. 'I shall flee from every grave sin as it were from the face of the serpent, and I would rather die a thousand deaths than admit it.'

         In Notitiam Ecclesiasticam Africae Tabula Geographica

      Artist: L Isle de /Covens & Mortier Guillaume (d) ; issued in: Paris; date: (d)1700 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 48 x 64; - description: Map shows Marocco, Algeria and Tunesia with Spain, Balear Islands, Corsica, Sardinia and Sicily; - vita of the artist: Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Relief shown pictorially. Engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Heinrich Scherer' after an anonymous artist. Heinrich Scherer (1628-1704) was a Professor of Hebrew, Mathematics and Ethics at the University of Dillingen until about 1680.

It was during his time in Munich as Tutor to the Princely house of Bavaria that his lifetime’s work as a cartographer received acclaim and recognition. Scherer’s world atlas, the Atlas Novus, first published in Munich between 1702 and 1710 and reissued in a second edition between 1730 and 1737, forms a singularly unusual, almost revolutionary work in terms of the development of European mapmaking at the beginning of the 18th Century.

         Carte Nouvelle de L’Amerique Angloise Contenant La Virginie, Mary-Land, Caroline, Pensylvania Nouvelle Iorck. N: Iarsey N: France, et Les Terres Nouvellement Decouerte Dresse sur les Relations les Plus Nouvelles par le Sieur S a Amsterdam Chez Pierre Mortier Libraire Avec Privilege de nos Seigneurs les Etats

      c. 1700 - 59 x 91 cm. Detallado mapa a gran escala de las colonias británicas en Norteamérica, publicado por Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) y atribuido en el título al cartógrafo francés Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667). Está inspirado en el excepcional New Map of the English Empire In America, de Robert Morden-Brown, el cual fue publicado por primera vez alrededor de 1698 en Londres. Mortier era un exitoso editor de libros y mapas establecido en Amsterdam, quien reconocía la superioridad de la cartografía francesa de la época. Tuvo conocimiento y acceso a los mapas de Sanson, los cuales eran publicados en París por Jaillot desde 1681. Algunos de ellos fueron vueltos a grabar y republicar por Mortier. Esta interesante Carte Nouvelle apareció con los dos folios unidos en su afamado Neptune François, y en hojas separadas en el Atlas nouveau des cartes marines. Representa la costa este de Estados Unidos y Canadá, desde Florida y el Golfo de México hasta Labrador, la Bahía de Hudson y Groenlandia más al norte. Hacia el occidente llega hasta el Río Mississippi. Abarca los actuales territorios de Canadá, Nueva Inglaterra, Nueva York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Carolina del Norte, Carolina del Sur, Florida, entre otros. Entre muchas características notables de este mapa, se encuentra el hecho de ser el primer plano impreso de una ciudad colonial británica en un mapa que no es inglés. Al respecto, incluye un recuadro sin título del puerto de Boston, que a su vez sirve para ocultar los territorios desconocidos ubicados hacia el occidente. Se diferencia del mapa de Morden en que no incluye un recuadro del Atlántico, por lo demás, la cartografía sigue siendo la misma. Sobrio cartouche con el título y el pie de imprenta ubicado en la esquina superior izquierda. Muestra también un título alternativo y pie de imprenta en la esquina superior derecha: Partie orientale de l'Amerique Angloise. Debajo de éste, una pequeña rosa de los vientos. Muestra redes fluviales, minas y depósitos minerales, asentamientos de nativos americanos, fuertes, árboles que indican la presencia de bosques y algunos bancos frente a las costas de Nueva Escocia y Terranova. El relieve se ilustra de manera gráfica con pequeñas montañas. Como se puede observar, se encuentran presentes los Grandes Lagos (Superior, Michigan, Hurón, Erie y Ontario). Muchos de los topónimos fueron traducidos al francés, mientras que algunos se conservaron en inglés, como Copper Mine, cerca de lo que actualmente es la ciudad de Chicago. Sin duda este atractivo mapa se distingue porque muestra los grandes malentendidos geográficos que se tenían sobre América hacia finales de siglo XVII. Como el punto de desembocadura del río Mississippi en el Golfo de México, orientado más hacia el occidente; la inusual forma de los Grandes Lagos; o la cadena montañosa que discurre desde Míchigan hasta Florida y que se conecta con los Montes Apalaches. Este último rasgo es uno de los errores cartográficos más misteriosos que se pueden encontrar en los mapas de Norteamérica. Otra característica destacada es la forma inusual y alongada que tiene Green Bay (llamada aquí Bay de Puans); el perfil de la península de Delaware; y los límites de Pennsylvania que se extienden más al norte. Grabado en placa de cobre. Impreso en dos hojas unidas, en un papel de excelente calidad. Coloreado a mano. Márgenes estrechos. Muy buen estado de conservación.

        Bolivia

      1700s - 1800s. The letters span from the 1700s to the 1800s and most are addressed to Francisco Ruiz De Sorzano, a very important man during the colonial period in the La Paz area of today Bolivia. He had important business relations with Peru, and was the owner of lands in what today is the border between Peru and Bolivia. He was also possibly a descendant of the King of Spain. The letters deal with commerce and various historical accounts. This collection is rife with untapped material and will be a true treasure to historians specializing in Bolivian culture. While many letters still have wax seal remnants, most do not have postal markings meaning they were undoubtedly hand carried in the 1700s. Sorzano's great great grandson, Jose Luis Tejada Sorzano, became President of Bolivia during the Chaco War. Sorzano was the Vice President at the time but was elected President after Daniel Salamanca Urey was forced to resign. The Chaco War was a costly conflict between Bolivia and Paraguay. Hostile incidents began as early as 1928 over the Chaco Boreal, a wilderness region of about 100,000 square miles (259,000 square km) north of the Pilcomayo River and west of the Paraguay River that forms part of the Gran Chaco. The conflict stemmed from the outcome of the War of the Pacific (1879-84), in which Chile defeated Bolivia and annexed that nation's entire coastal region. Thereafter, Bolivia attempted to break out of its landlocked situation through the Río de La Plata system to the Atlantic coast; athwart that route lay the Gran Chaco, which the Bolivians thought had large oil reserves. Paraguay formally declared war on May 10, 1933 launching a series of attacks along an extended front late in October and made such impressive gains that the Bolivian president Daniel Salamanca replaced Kundt with General Enrique Peñaranda. After Bolivian counterattacks put Paraguayan forces on the defensive, a truce was arranged on June 12, 1935. About 100,000 men lost their lives in the war. A peace treaty was arranged by the Chaco Peace Conference, which included Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Uruguay, and the United States. It was signed in Buenos Aires on July 21, 1938. Paraguay gained clear title to most of the disputed region, but Bolivia was given a corridor to the Paraguay River and a port (Puerto Casado). The war had caused disruption of the Bolivian economy, provoking demands for reform among the deprived Bolivian masses. Argentina was given the main credit for the settlement, and Argentine investors profited greatly from Paraguay's territorial gain. Sorzano as president had a responsibility to bring an end to the disastrous Chaco War. By June 1935, a ceasefire was reached with Paraguay, however, the terms granted most of the Chaco Boreal region to Paraguay, reducing Bolivia's territory considerably. This earned Tejada the disdain of the military and he was removed from office in a coup d'etat led by generals José David Toro and Germán Busch a year later.
