        Venezuela Cum Parte Australi Novae Andalusiae

      Amsterdam. Map. Copperplate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 14.25 x 18.75". Sheet measures 19.75 x 24". This fine map focuses on the Spanish colonial provinces of Venezuela and New Andalusia, corresponding roughly to the present-day Venezuelian states of Sucre, Venezuela, Anzoátegui and Monagas. Published circa 1700, the map shows the northern coastline labeled with important cities and ports. Above the coast, a string of offshore islands creates a pleasant visual rhythm set off by a decorative cartouche and two ornamental compass roses. This string contains portions of the Lesser Antilles, the Leeward Antilles, and the Windward Islands, including among others Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, St. Lucia, Dominica, and Trinidad and Tobago. The lower half of the map is sparsely detailed, as little of the area had been explored beyond the coast by this time. However, pictorial mountains, trees and rivers animate the space with the topographic mystery of the unknown. The map is in excellent condition with deluxe margins.. Slight ghosting from original color. Petrus Schenk (c.1660--1711) was a German engraver and cartographer. He began his training in Amsterdam in the art of mezzotint and soon began working closely with Gerard Valck. The two took advantage of the bustling cartographic trade in the city and quickly expanded their business from portraits and prints into maps and globes. In 1700, Schenk grew the business further by moving to Leipzig, Germany and opening a shop. As his sons and grandson returned to the Netherlands to become active engravers as well, the Schenk firm developed into one of the best-known publishing houses in 18th-century Amsterdam. This map attests to Valck and Schenk's prolific production and skill in both cartographic artistry and business.

      per Bernardino Pomatelli,, in Ferrara, 1700 - In-4° (233x168mm), pp. (30), 556, (2), legatura coeva p. pergamena rigida con unghie. Titolo in oro su tassello al dorso, adorno di filetti e fregi floreali in oro. Tagli azzurri a spruzzo. Fregio xilografico al frontespizio. Antiporta calcografica disegnata e incisa da Giovan Battista Coriolano con basamento con titolazione dell'opera inscritta al suo interno, panoplie guerresche distese a terra e stemma estense coronato sorretto da putti in volo; sullo sfondo, alcune ocche e cavalieri in armi.

Indice ed errata in fine. Lavori di tarlo marginali e di lieve entità alle ultime 2 carte bianche e al contropiatto posteriore. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione (l'edizione, tecnicamente, è ancora una seicentina). Il lavoro, opera giovanile del Baruffaldi, valse all'autore non pochi guai e ostilità, per alcuni giudizi in esso contenuti che irritarono i nobili cittadini. Girolamo Baruffaldi ll Vecchio (Ferrara, 1675-ivi, 1755), "uno de' più fertili scrittori del passato secolo" al dire del Gamba, fu poeta, letterato, storico, archeologo, Arciprete di Cento. La sua ingente produzione satirica è ancor oggi molto stimata dagli studiosi di storia del costume; meritano di essere ricordati, in proprosito, i suoi poemi giocosi o satirici "La Tabaccheide" e "Il Grillo".

Large blind embossed vellum bound Church Gradual (34 x 21 cm; 13.25 x 8.25 inches), 508 numbered pages, with p. 499 bearing the following information: 'Dis buch ist geschrieben worden durch JOANNES PHILIPPI KNAB, der zet-Catholischer Schulmeister in Sprendlingen im jahr 1700..." Condition good to very good, clasps to binding lacking, edgewear, some recent vellum repairs to spine, contents also good to very good, well thumbed and general light edgewear to pages, multiple occasional very short tears and a few slightly longer tears, but in general very good. An amazing gradual with music and Latin text, composed in red and black inks and with many decorations, embellishments and rubrications in German folk- art motifs that recall the decorative arts of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Sprendlingen is a short distance SW of Frankfurt and NW of Mannheim. We could not find out much regarding Knab, but his name appears in 1716 as pastor of St. Michael's and Vitus Church in Heiligenstadt in upper Franconia, and there is mention of a Knab of the same name and time associated with the towns of Coburg and Mengersdorf. A beautiful and unique work. Housed in handsome green cloth clamshell box.

Format 32,5 x 26 cm ( 1965 gr ). ------- 221 pages avec 270 illustrations. ******************* "" Cet ouvrage dévoile une sélection exceptionnelle de costumes et d’accessoires, tous emblématiques des principaux mouvements de mode en Europe du XVIIIe siècle au début du XXe, appartenant à la prestigieuse collection du Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Ces pièces, qui proviennent essentiellement de France, d’Angleterre et d’Italie, permettent de retracer une histoire de la silhouette sur deux siècles, tout en mettant l’accent sur les formes, les détails et les savoir-faire. On y découvre, pour le XVIIIe siècle, les somptueuses chinoiseries, turqueries et toiles venues d’Inde qui illustrent la fascination pour un Orient de fantaisie, mais aussi l’oscillation entre la solennité des vêtements de cour français et l’élégante simplicité en faveur en Angleterre. Les pékins, taffetas, satins façonnés et autres velours ciselés, dans lesquels sont taillés les costumes pour femmes ou pour hommes, la plupart réalisés par les fabriques de Lyon ou de Tours, révèlent la fabuleuse richesse des techniques de tissage. L’empreinte des événements historiques et politiques sur la mode est importante : lors de la Révolution française, le vêtement devient le support privilégié des opinions de chacun, tandis que sous Napoléon l’influence du retour à l’antique et de la campagne d’Égypte est manifeste. Au cours du XIXe siècle, les silhouettes féminines blanches et éthérées des années 1820 laissent la place au règne des crinolines, puis aux tournures et aux « faux culs » qui accentuent la chute des reins ; à l’aube du XXe siècle s’impose la silhouette en S, modelée par un corset au laçage très serré. Durant ce siècle où la garde-robe masculine évolue peu, seuls certains éléments font leur apparition, tels le complet et le veston, dont l’usage se fait plus fréquent. Vers 1906, Paul Poiret modifie profondément la silhouette féminine, interdit à ses clientes le port du corset et propose tout un univers oriental, dont on retrouve aussi l’écho chez les sœurs Callot. Illustré de splendides photographies de détails qui nous font découvrir l’extraordinaire prouesse technique de certains tissus, cet ouvrage offre une synthèse remarquable sur l’histoire de la mode.

Profusely illustrated edition of Cats's complete collected works, first published in 1655. Two folio volumes bound in one, each separately paged and signed, and each with additional engraved title page bearing a portrait of the author, as well as sectional title pages with engraved vignettes. [28],666 [i.e. 662: 183-184 repeated and 343-348 omitted],[10]; [18],390,[6],393-608,61,[1] pp, with full-page portraits of the author and of Anna Maria Schurman, three double-page plates, and more than 400 superb copper-engraved half- and quarter-page plates (most from the original designs of Adrian van de Venne), numerous tailpieces of bouquets, and historiated initials. Recent period-style full vellum binding by Fitterer, mustard lettering piece decorated and lettered in gilt, end papers renewed. An exemplary example in a magnificent vellum binding, occasional spotting and minor marginal browning internally, else fresh and bright with deep rich impressions of type and plates. & Cats was a Dutch statesman and writer of emblem books, a type of popular, seventeenth-century literature consisting of woodcuts or engravings accompanied by didactic verses pointing a moral or presenting an ethical concern often related to love and marriage. (Dutch artists of the Golden Age, including Vermeer, used such books as inspiration for motifs in their paintings and prints.) The sources upon which Cats draws for this combination of emblem literature and love poetry are chiefly the Bible and the classics and occasionally Boccaccio and Cervantes. His first book, Sinne-en minnebeelden ("Portraits of Morality and Love") contained 96 emblematic engravings with text in Dutch, Latin, and French, each emblem with a threefold interpretation, expressing what were for Cats the three elements of human life: love, society, and religion. Perhaps his most famous emblem book, written in a more homely style than his earlier works, is Spiegel van den ouden en nieuwen tyt ("Mirror of Old and New Times"), with 128 emblematical engravings accompanied by quotations, many of which have become household sayings. Two other works—Houwelyk ('Marriage') and Trou-ringh ('Wedding Ring'), with 59 plates—are rhymed dissertations on marriage and conjugal fidelity. Finally, in one of his last books, Ouderdom, buyten-leven en hof-gedachten ("Old Age, Country Life, and Garden Thoughts"), with 27 plates, Cats writes movingly about his declining years.

Bennet, 1700. [xxxii], 272, (273)-(294), 273-516 pp., folding leaf bound between pp. 82-83. Octavo (7-1/4" x 4-1/2"). Recent three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt-edged raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Light toning to text, foxing to a few leaves, internally clean. * Second and final edition.

Atterbury charged Wake with the submission of the church liberties to the arbitrary will of a sovereign. It was first published in 1697 as A Letter to a Convocation-Man, Concerning the Rights, Powers, And Priviledges of that Body. Both editions are scarce.

        Florentia Pulcherrima et Ruriae Civitas

      Amsterdam. unbound. Václav Hollar. Map. Engraving. Image measures 17.5" x 28.5". This detailed bird's-eye view, published circa 1700, depicts Florence and its immediate surroundings. The Arno river cuts diagonally across the plan from lower left to upper right, where it meets two putti holding a decorative shield. The town's star-shaped fort can also be seen to the far left. Surrounding the central plan are 10 town views, 5 on each side. In addition to typical architectural sights such as Pitti Palace and the Duomo, these views also include cultural and athletic events--such as boxing, boat and horse racing--which were less commonly seen on maps of this period. Two keys in the upper left (1-17) and lower right (1-228) label sites of interest on the map, particularly churches. The map appeared in de Wit's rare town book, "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae." The map is in fair condition from being framed. Beautiful as is with overall toning, but can easily be cleaned and restored for an extra fee. Frederick de Wit (1629/30--1706) was one of the foremost cartographers and map sellers of the Dutch Golden Age. Based in Amsterdam, he began with a small printing shop in 1654 and soon became internationally known for his city plans and wall maps of the world. His most famous work is the "Theatrum Praecipuarum Totius Europae," published after 1694, which contained 132 plans and views of European and Asian cities. By 1671, he was producing large folio atlases for both his shop and individual patrons that could contain anywhere between 15 and 150 maps. Today, these atlases grace the collections of many museums and institutions as evidence of the vibrant cartographic trade in Amsterdam in the middle- and late-17th century. This striking map is a rare example from this work.

      Thomas Fritsch, Frankfurt am Mayn. 1700 - ="Mit Koenigl. Polnischen Churfl. Saechischen und Churfuerstl. Brandenburgischen PRIVILEGIIS." Mit "Einige ADDITAMENTA oder Zusätze". Mit Register. Arnold deutet die Geschichte des Christentums im Sinne des reformatorischen Geschichtsbildes als Verfallsgeschichte und prägte mit dem Anspruch unparteiisches Quellenstudium zu betreiben auch die (wissenschaftliche) Beschäftigung mit Kirchengeschichte. Auch wenn er für seine Herangehensweise teilweise stark kritisiert wurde, war sein Werk in der Geistesgeschichte und besonders in der Theologie wirkmächtig. In Teil 3 werden kleinere heterodoxe Gruppen und Akteure des 17. Jahrhunderts behandelt, Teil 4 ergänzt die vorangegangen drei Teile und enthält auch eine Auseinandersetzung mit seinen Kritikern. Einband stark berieben und mit in zahlreichen Fehlstellen. Fliegendes Vorsatzblatt mit einem alten handschritlichen Vermerk. Kein Titelkupfer vorhanden und fehlt höchstwahrscheinlich. Rückseite des Titelblattes und einige Seiten mit einem Bibliotheksstempel aus Schlesien versehen. Buchblock teilweise angelöst.

        America Aurea Pars Alter Mundi Auctoribus

      Amsterdam: [circa 1700]. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring. 21 1/8 x 25 1/4 inches. Highly decorative map of North and South America showing California as an island and here with full period hand colouring. This decorative map by the Valk brothers is after a similar map by Carol Allard, first published circa 1696. Cartographically, both Allard and the Valks borrow heavily from the De Wit map of 1675, naming the Great Lakes, showing California as an island and with a Terra Esonis and Fretum Anian in the northwest. Interestingly, the Valks here re-issue the first state of Allard's map, i.e. before the re-engraving of the western Great Lakes and the Mississippi River (based on Hennepin's mapping). In addition, the lower left corner of the cartouche is left blank, whereas in subsequent issues of the Allard map, an inset of New Zealand appears. In the present issue, there are no toponyms on Terra Esonis and the South Pacific is without New Guinea. Cf. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: 724 (discussing the map under the entry for Allard); Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast, 496; Tooley, "California as an Island," 68 in Tooley, The Mapping of America; McLaughlin,The Mapping of California as an Island, 176.

        Remarks Upon a Late Pamphlet Intitul'd, The Two Great Questions Consider'd: I. What the French King will do with respect to the Spanish Monarchy, II. What Meaures the English ought to take

      London, 1700 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An extremely scarceessay responding to writer Daniel Defoe's political pamphlet concerning the events leading up to the War of Spanish Succession. Daniel Defoe (16591661-1731), born Daniel Foe, was an English trader, writer, journalist, and pamphleteer, who gained fame for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is notable for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularise the form in Britain and along with others such as Richardson, is among the founders of the English novel. A prolific and versatile writer, he wrote more than 500 books, pamphlets and journals on various topics (including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology and the supernatural). He was also a pioneer of economic journalism. Defoe's first notable publication was An Essay upon Projects, a series of proposals for social and economic improvement, published in 1697. From 1697 to 1698 he defended the right of King William III to a standing army during disarmament after the Treaty of Ryswick (1697) had ended the Nine Years' War (168897). When Charles II died in 1700, the line of the Spanish Habsburgs died with him. He had named as his successor a grand-nephew, Philip, Duke of Anjou (a grandson of the reigning French king Louis XIV, and of Charles' half-sister, Maria Theresa of SpainLouis XIV himself was an heir to the Spanish throne through his mother, daughter of Philip III of Spain). As alternate successor he had named his blood cousin Charles. The spectre of the multi-continental empire of Spain passing under the effective control of Louis XIV provoked a massive coalition of powers to oppose the Duc d'Anjou's succession. The actions of Louis heightened the fears of, among others, the English, the Dutch and the Austrians. In February 1701, the French King caused the Parlement of Paris (a court) to register a decree that should Louis himself have no heir that the Duc d'Anjou (Phillip V of Spain) would surrender the Spanish throne for that of the French, ensuring dynastic continuity in Europe's greatest land power. The War of the Spanish Succession (17011714) was therefore fought among several European powers, including a divided Spain, over the possible unification of the Kingdoms of Spain and France under one Bourbon monarch. As France and Spain were among the most powerful states of Europe, such a unification would have drastically altered the European balance of power. Condition: In paper wraps. Externally worn, with chipping and loss to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Brightand relatively clean, somewhat dusted. Overall: GOOD..

The papers were printed either by wood blocks or by engraved metal rollers, which covered the paper with sizing or paste. Gold was dusted onto the size; and, when the size dried, superfluous gold was brushed off. For raised gold, the size was thickened with yellow ochre or red lead. Some were colored by daubing or stenciling after gilding. Full, unused sheets are rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Cologne: Chez Pierre Marteau, 1700 First edition. Contemporary calf, gilt spine. . Twelvemo. Some wear to upper cover, front joint neatly repaired, spine lettering a bit flaked. A very good copy. From the Macclesfield Library, with their bookplate, and the notation that this was a gift from the publisher ("Ex dono Editoris"). Matthieu Souverain (d. ca. 1699) was a Huguenot who settle in England, and a notorious Socinian. Here, he discusses the doctrine of the Logos in St. John's Gospel. This work attracted considerable attention, and was certainly read by Locke. An English translation appeared in 1700, and a German one in 1782. There is also a modern edition, published by Fayard of Paris, in 2004.
