        A sheet of gold brocade decorative paper showing fashions in hairstyles

      [Germany?, mid-18th century]. Oblong broadsheet (360 x 420 mm.), pale yellow laid paper, printed and embossed in gold (image area 320 x 385 mm.) showing eight oval male and female profile busts in two horizontal rows, each male-female pair showing a different style of coiffure, each bust labeled either à la Moderne (the couples at upper left and lower right) or à l?'Antieque [sic] (those at upper right and lower left), the cartouches set within wreaths and surrounded by roses, floral swags, and ribbons. Untrimmed.*** An unrecorded and unusual figurative example of Buntpapier or Brokatpapier. Known in English as Dutch-gilt paper, these papers, printed from woodblocks, metal plates or by engraved rollers, ?"were used from about 1700, and ... were actually produced in Germany and Italy, the Dutch connection possibly arising from the fact that the papers were imported into Holland for reexport to France and England, although not all of them arrived in France and England by that route. A great variety of designs was employed in these papers, many being in imitation of the brocades and damasks of the period. Some have figures of huntsmen, animals and birds, saints, mythological beasts, and Renaissance strap and scroll patterns; many are embossed, and some are printed on colored paper. The probable method of their execution consisted of transferring gold size to the paper by means of wooden plates or engraved rollers, the former first being pressed onto a pad saturated with the size, the latter having the size painted on. When the size on the paper had dried to the correct state, the gold was dusted on, and, when the size was dry, the superfluous gold was brushed off. If it was desired to have the gold raised the size was thickened with yellow ochre or red lead?" (Etherington and Brown, Bookbinding and the Conservation of Books [1981], electronic resource). In this unusual example, two of the male and female silhouettes show 18th-century hairstyles, and two show ancient Roman (truly ?"à l?'antique?") coiffures or coverings for the hair. Not noted by Haemmerle, Buntpapier (Munich 1977); not in the catalogue Carte decorate, Musei e Gallerie di Milano (1989).

        Asia. "Asiae Recentissima Delineatio,qua Status et imperia totius Orientis unacum Orientalis Indiis

      Asia & Australasia: Nuremberg Homann, Johann Baptist c1720. Copper engraved map of the continent of Asia by Johann Bapt. Homann from his "Grosser Atlas" . Original colour, verso blank. Decorative title cartouche and vignette showing a potentate being paid homage, with a leopard and a lion. Descriptive text without cartouche to upper right. Early example of Homann's first map of Asia, it includes the northern tip of Australia (Nova Hollandia) Carpentaria, Nova Britannia and the Marianas. Hokkaido is identified as Terra Yedso and the fictional Compagnie Land, to the northeast of Japan. Dampier's passage is shown stretching between New Guinea and New Britain and marks his discovery of New Britain in 1700. Dark impression; cartouche black & white as issued Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. Asia & Australasia Asia as Continent

Något nötta kanter, reva längs ned med förlust av ett ord.Warmholtz 2509. Första upplagan av Johannes Messenius mycket viktiga svenska historieverk, postumt utgiven av Johan Peringskiöld. Här med det nästan alltid saknade porträttet av Messenius, graverad av Truls Arwidsson. Utgiven i 14 delar, numrerade 1 till 15 (nummer 14 utkom aldrig) av planerade 20. De första åtta utgör första delen och de övriga andra. Johannes Messenius (1579-1636) var sin tids mest betydande svenska historiker, med ett tragiskt livsöde. Han blev professor i juridik och politik vid Uppsala universitet 1609. Men efter stridigheter med Johannes Rudbeckius flyttade han sitt eget kollegium till Stockholm och till en tjänst vid kansliet. Stridigheter fortsatte dock, nu med Nils Chesnecopherus och Erik Jöransson Tegel, och år 1616 blev han dömd till döden för papistiska stämplingar, vilket dock mildrades till livstids deportation till Kajaneborgs fästning i Finland. Där bodde han sedan i tjugo år (år 1635 mildrades dock straffet till förvisning till Österbotten, och han bosatte sig i Uleåborg), och där skrev han detta sitt livsverk, Scondia illustrata. Detta verk bildade epok. Han införde en viss kritik mot Johannes Magnus och dennes sagohistoria, men framförallt använde han sig av mycket arkivmaterial i sin medeltida del, och behandlade detta kritiskt, och för den äldre historien förde han in ett helt nytt källmaterial, den isländska sagokretsen. Det sistnämnda, inte minst historien om Oden-Othinus som vandrade till Sverige från Troja och grundade Uppsala, fick för den efterföljande svenska historieskrivningen en stor betydelse, ända fram till E. G. Geijer.Eric Johannes Schroderus (1609-39) fick efter sin magisterpromotion 1635 order av förmyndarregeringen att besöka Messenius i Uleåborg och skaffa information om arbetet med Scondia illustrata. Han anlände i januari 1636 och stannade till Messenius död i november samma år. Han rapporterade regelbundet hem och skickade avskrifter ur arbetet. Dessa brev finns dock ej bevarade. Efter återkomsten till Stockholm, lämnade Schroderus den 11 december in sin slutrapport, "Relation om D. Johannis Messenii Scondia illustrata". Denna finns bevarad i sammanlagt 4 avskrifter, tre på KB och en i UB. Rapporten sammanfattar kort innehåller i de 20 banden, av vilka han hunnit läsa tio. Avskriften som återfinns här innehåller sammanfattningen av delarna 14 och 16-20, dvs de som ej blev tryckta

        Elementa Matheseos tumultuario Studio concinnata ac suis Studentibus tradita

      circa. 1700. . [Manuscript]. 1/2 Vellum. Very Good. 4to (24 x 17 cm). Half vellum on marble boards. 92 numered pages (duplicates of page no., 74 and 75, as Addendum to the Arithmetic section.) All pages are in Latin script with 3 in text tables, 3 folding tables at end and 4 folding plates containing 18 figures. The figures have red wash for shading. The title page is in red and black ink. The text is written in a fine legible hand. The title translates loosely as “Elementary Mathematics - An improved and carefully arranged course for intense study and delivery to students.” (Loose translation) The text is divided into sections on Arithmetic and Geometry. Each section has an introduction, history, presentation, object, and divisions. These paragraphs are followed either by propositions (Arithmetic section) or Addenda on separate topics, such as conics, parabola, etc. (Geometric section). The Arithmetic section is longest with 74 p. plus 2 addenda pages. The detail information in the Geometry sections leads to practical problem solving for surveying. We could find no record of publication or for the author of this manuscript. We have not found any published reference for this work. This appears to be an original work used in teaching students, most likely at a Capuchin monastery in the 17th and early 18th centuries. This is a very scarce and fine example of early teaching of two major branches of mathematics, Arithmetic and Geometry.
