        Carte des Costes de L'Afrique ou est compris une Partie de Guinée, Le Royaume de Benin, Isle de St. Thomas &c. Levée Par Ordre Expres des Roys de Portugal, sous quion en a Fiat Decouverte

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, [1700]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gold embellishments, in very good condition. 24 1/2 x 37 3/4 inches. A superb coastal chart of western Africa, with exquisite original colour and gold highlights This large scale, beautifully coloured chart, which shows the west coast of Africa from the southern border of Morocco to the southern border of Gabon, comes from the third part of Mortier's edition of Le Neptune François, or Suite du Neptune François, a lavish collection of charts derived from manuscripts in the Royal Portuguese archives. The Portuguese had of course been the first Europeans to explore the coasts of Africa. The map includes two handsome vignettes of the historically important islands that lie somewhat outside the purview of this chart: Ascension Island and St. Helena. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French émigrés, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books and maintained his relationships with Parisian publishers. Amsterdam was at this time the international marketplace for books, especially books forbidden by repressive governments. He established himself in the field of cartographical publishing by offering editions of French maps, primarily Sanson's and Jaillot's to a public tired of the superb but dated Dutch offerings. Working on a scale larger than the typical Dutch folio map and providing the new insights of French geography, he was immensely successful. The charts in his version of Le Neptune François are outstanding examples of cartographical art. They are among the most beautiful printed sea charts ever made. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, M. Mor 7, #5

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Apud Fredericum Haaring, et Davidem Severinum Bibliopolas [through 1700], 1699. Vellum. Very Good. Two volumes in one. 4to: [16],494,[26]; [6],282(misprinted 826),[4], with copper-engraved portrait of Galileo, additional engraved title page (after Stefano della Bella), dated 1700, showing Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus discussing the heliocentric and geocentric models of the solar system, and numerous woodcut illustrations. In addition to Galileo's texts, this edition includes (following conclusion of the Dialogo) the introduction to "Astronomia nova" (pp. 446-454), in which Johannes Kepler argued in favor of heliocentrism based upon his ten-year-long investigation of the motion of Mars; the Latin translation of Paolo Antonio Foscarini's "Epistola R.P.M. Pauli Antonii Foscarini, Carmelitani, circa Pythagoricorum, & Copernici opinionem de mobilitate terræ, et stabilitate solis: et de novo systemate seu consitiutione mundi" (Letter concerning the Opinion of the Pythagoreans and Copernicus about the Mobility of the Earth and Stability of the Sun, and the New Pythagorean System of the World, pp. 455-487), in which Foscarini defends the Copernican theory against charges that it conflicted with Scripture, and "The judgment of the Cardinals against Galileo and his abjuration (pp. 488-494), first printed in Riccioli's "Almagestum," in 1651. Period full vellum over boards, titled in manuscript to spine, edges speckled black, plain period end papers. A handsome, unsophisticated copy, rare in this condition. Vellum soiled and stained, scattered minor foxing, some thumbing to final few leaves, but a tight, clean example. PMM 128 (Dialogo first edition) & 130 (Discorsi). Carli and Favaro 395. Dibner 8 and 141. Norman 858. & First Leiden Edition of the Dialogo (Fourth Latin Edition, Fifth Edition overall), bound with the First Latin Edition (third overall) of the Two New Sciences. Galileo's discoveries with the telescope (described in Sidereus nuncius, in 1610), confirmed his belief that the Sun is the center of the universe and Earth a planet, as Copernicus had argued. But by 1616, the Inquisition had pronounced Copernican theory heretical, and Galileo was admonished not to “hold or defend” it. Then in 1624, Maffeo Cardinal Barberini, friend, admirer, and patron of Galileo for a decade, was named Pope Urban VIII, and granted Galileo permission to write a book about theories of the universe but warned him to treat the Copernican theory only hypothetically. That book, the Dialogo (Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, Ptolemaic & Copernican), was first published, in Italian, in 1632. In it, Galileo gathered together all the arguments (mostly based on his own telescopic discoveries) for the Copernican theory and against the traditional geocentric cosmology put forth by Ptolemy and Aristotle. (The Dialogo takes the form of a discussion between a spokesman for Copernicus, one for Ptolemy and Aristotle, and an educated layman for whose support the other two vie.) Reaction against the book was swift. The pope convened a special commission, which recommended that the Inquisition bring a case against Galileo. Galileo confessed to having overstated his case and was condemned to life imprisonment, though he never spent a day in a dungeon; the Dialogo remained on the Inquisition's Index of prohibited books until 1822. The two new sciences with which the second book deals are mechanics and motion (kinematics). Together, they underlie modern physics, and the Two Sciences is considered the "first modern textbook in physics" (Dibner), "not only because it contains the elements of the mathematical treatment of motion, but also because most of the problems that came rather quickly to be seen as problems amenable to physical experiment and mathematical analysis were gathered together with suggestive discussions of their possible solution." (Dictionary of Scientific Biography) Newton claimed he derived the first two laws of motion from this book. N. B.

        Ethiopian Coptic (Ge'ez) Illustrated Manuscript Codex on Vellum

      [Ethiopia]: n.p., [18th-early 20th century] . Sewn Binding. Very Good. 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Written in Ge'ez in red and black ink. Five full page hand painted illustrations depicting the Madonna and Child (Mary and Jesus), St. George and the Dragon, the Crucifixion, and two depictions of the risen Christ, followed by 44 vellum leaves bound in five gatherings of eight leaves and a final gathering of four leaves. The last two leaves are blank, allowing the owner to make additions as desired. Varying signs of age (such as light staining an fading) to the vellum text pages as is normal. Bound in bare wooden boards in the distinctive Coptic style with exposed spine. A very good Coptic codex written in the Ethiopic (Ge'ez) script, a Semitic language that is no longer spoken, but which is still used for liturgical and other religious purposes by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The subjects of these codices are generally always Christian, but the actual content varies. Dating Ethiopian manuscripts is difficult. The text is believed to date from as early as 1700 to as late as 1850, with the covers, stitching, and hand paintings added later, likely during the first part of the 20th Century. The majority of the text consists of incantations to protect the owner from supernatural forces.

Maginificently illustrated with 428 engraved illustrations on 214 plates--141 full page copperplate plates for the Old Testament and 73 for the New Testament, each composed of two scenes, thus a total of 428 engravings, additionally with allegorical frontispieces at the beginning of each Testament and three allegorical vignette title-pages, and additionally, with 5 impressive engraved double-page maps, including one of the world and the others of the various regions of the Holy Land. The engravings are by or after Luycken (Luyken), Elgier, Picart, Goeree, and others.

THE GREAT ILLUSTRATED BIBLE OF PIETER MORTIER, "Grande Bible de Mortier", IN THE RARE AND PREFERRED THREE VOLUME FORMAT AND THE ORIGINAL BINDING, THUS A VERY TALL COPY, UNTRIMMED AND WITH LARGE MARGINS. Not a full Bible in the usual sense, Mortier presents the books of the Bible through his illustrations, each accompanied by a short telling of the story in standard prose. The fine, large engravings were produced by or from the works of several masters. Many were later reproduced and used again in later and lesser bibles, in most case significantly reduced. The artists include Jan Luyken, Jan Goeree, Bernard Picard and others. While the text is in Dutch, the captions for the engravings are given in both Dutch and French. Complete copies are scarce, complete copies untrimmed and in full contemporary state are rare.

The first trilingual edition, adding Greek, was in 1645, but we have located no copies of this later edition in COPAC or Worldcat, and only a handful of copies of earlier editions outside France, including a 1696 in Illinois (Loyola), and editions of 1679 and 1680 in Canada.

        A Familiar Discourse or Dialogue Concerning the Mine-Adventure

      Title within ruled border. 8 p.l., 160, 15 pp. 8vo, cont. speckled calf (very carefully rebacked with the orig. spine laid-down, one corner a bit worn, faint dampstaining towards end), spine gilt. London: "Printed in the Year 1700." First edition and a lovely copy of a scarce book. "Published to encourage public investment in Sir Carbery Price's silver, copper, and lead mines and smelting works in Wales, which Sir Humphrey Mackworth (1657-1727) bought when Price died (1695). Considered so rich and abundant in high-grade ores, these mines were called the 'Welsh Potosi' after the silver mines in Bolivia. Mackworth formed the Corporation of the Governor and Company of the Mine Adventurers of England. Written in the form of a dialogue between 'Two Noble Lords, a Learned Doctor of Divinity, and an Eminent Merchant of London,' this work makes a very good case for investing substantial sums of money in these unusually productive mines. Thomas Savery's (1650?-1715) engine for pumping mine water by means of steam power (1698) is described (p. 50) as 'a very ingenious Invention.' In addition to its metallurgical and mineralogical interest, there are discussions of ore smelting, chemical analyses, etc."-Neville, II, p. 469. Fine copy. Book label of Chillingham Castle of the Earls Grey. ❧ See Hoover 744 for the second edition of 1709. .

        THE DOCTRINE OF INSTITUTED CHURCHES EXPLAINED AND PROVED FROM THE WORD OF GOD

      London. 1700.. [2],34pp. Small quarto. Antique calf in period style, by Trevor Lloyd. Text trimmed close, affecting text on some pages and headlines on others, and removing the date on the title imprint. Various owner's ex-libris in manuscript on the verso of the titlepage. Good. Stoddard was one of the liberal Boston ministers who wished to dispute the conservative principles put forth by Increase Mather in his important work, THE ORDER OF THE GOSPEL... (Boston, 1700). Like Benjamin Colman and Thomas Brattle, who had their reply printed in New York, Stoddard found that the Mathers' friendship and influence with the Boston printers of the time prevented him from getting into print there, so he took his publication to London. Only a handful of copies noted by ESTC. WING S5708. ESTC R16977. SABIN 91945.

        Carte Particuliere des Costes de L'Afrique Qui comprend le Royaume de Maroc &c. Levée Par Ordre Expres des Roys de Portugal sous qui on en a Fait Decouverte

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, [1700]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gold embellishments, in excellent condition. 24 1/2 x 37 3/4 inches. A highly decorative sea chart of the coast of Morocco, with exceptional original colour and highlights in gold This large scale, beautifully coloured chart, which shows the northwest coast of Africa from Cape Spartel to a point in the Sahara adjacent to the Canary Islands, comes from the third part of Mortier's edition of Le Neptune François, or Suite du Neptune François, a lavish collection of charts derived from manuscripts in the Royal Portuguese archives. The Portuguese had of course been the first Europeans to explore the coasts of Africa. The coast from Gibraltar to the Canaries was well known during the Middle Ages, and had been known to the Romans. This chart is the most accurate and detailed of the African charts in the work, including as it does soundings and notes: historical and advisory. The place-names have changed radically of course. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French émigrés, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade.

        Carte General de la Caroline. Dresse sur les Memoires le plus Nouveaux par le Sieua [sic.] S***

      Amsterdam: P. Mortier, [1700]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour. 25 x 20 inches. A fine copy of the first map of the Carolinas to be printed outside of England, including an inset of Charleston with the names and positions of early plantations along the Ashley and Cooper Rivers, present here in the first state This is the first map of the Carolinas to be printed outside of England, and was included as part of Pierre Mortier's Suite de Neptune François, published in Amsterdam in 1700, and often incorrectly attributed to Nicolas Sanson. It is directly derived from the extremely rare A New Map of Carolina of 1685 by John Thornton, Robert Morden and Philip Lea. All topographical details are identical to those of its antecedent, however most of the place names have been Gallicized. Also, The table of settlers has been omitted in favour of the title caption. Amusingly a "Charle Ville ou Charles Towne" appears written in large letters near Cape Fear, while the actual Charles Towne is labeled in small letters further down the coast. The present map includes an inset detail of Charleston and the Cooper and Ashley Rivers with the names and positions of various early plantations marked along their banks. "Carolina was established in 1663 when Charles II granted the province to eight favorites, known as the Lord Proprietors, who had helped him regain the throne of England. The original grant included the territory between the 31st degree to 36 1/2 degrees north latitude, from Jekyll Island, Georgia, to Curritiuck Inlet, North Carolina. Two years later, the tract was enlarged to include the land between the 29th and the 31st degrees north latitude, thus adding a large portion of Florida. The grant extended west to the Pacific Ocean" (Degrees of Latitude, p.93).

It is directly derived from the extremely rare A NEW MAP OF CAROLINA of 1685 by John Thornton, Robert Morden, and Philip Lea. All topographical details are identical to those of its antecedent; however, most of the place names have been Gallicized. Also, "The table of settlers" has been omitted in favor of the title caption. Amusingly, a "Charle Ville ou Charles Towne" appears written in large letters near Cape Fear, while the actual Charles Towne is labeled in small letters further down the coast. The present map includes an inset detail of Charleston and the Cooper and Ashley rivers, with the names and positions of various early plantations marked along their banks. "Carolina was established in 1663 when Charles II granted the province to eight favorites, known as the Lord Proprietors, who had helped him regain the throne of England. The original grant included the territory between the 31st degree to 36 1/2 degrees north latitude, from Jekyll Island, Georgia, to Curritiuck Inlet, North Carolina. Two years later, the tract was enlarged to include the land between the 29th and the 31st degrees north latitude, thus adding a large portion of Florida. The grant extended west to the Pacific Ocean" - DEGREES OF LATITUDE (p.93). BURDEN, MAPPING OF NORTH AMERICA 767. CUMMING, THE SOUTHEAST IN EARLY MAPS 120.

        Novissima et Perfectissima Africae Descriptio

      Amsterdam, c. 1700. Map. Copper engraving, 50 x 58 cms, original hand-colour, closed split at foot of centrefold, blank verso. Danckerts’ map of Africa follows Frederick de Wit's model, and it is a typical late seventeenth-century European perception of the continent: good coastal detail together with a great deal of speculation about the interior, including the mythical twin lakes of Zaire and Zaflan, and the mythical Saharan branch of the Nile.

        An Abridgment of Mr. Locke's Essay concerning Humane Understanding. The Second Edition, Corrected and Enlarged

      London: Printed for A. And J. Churchil.. 1700 Second edition. Nineteenth-century blindstamped paneled calf, edges stained red. . Small octavo. Front hinge weak, but holding. A very good copy. "The abridgement was Wynne's own idea and is based on the 2nd and 3rd editions (textually the same). Locke is said to have approved an abridgement in principle. This is one of the very few books dedicated to Locke (curiously)....Rather than rephrasing, Wynne's abridgment was accomplished by making strategic deletions in each chapter, sometimes adding transitional phrases, and keeping to Locke's own words" (Yolton pp 155/6).

        Mappe-Monde Drésse sur les Observations de Mrs. de l'Academie Royal des Sciences et quelques autres sur les memoires les pus recens

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur Rue des Canettes pres de St. Sulpice, 1700. Copper- engraved map, hand-coloured in outline. Good condition, cut to just within the plate mark, with expert repairs to margins and central fold. Sheet size: 17 1/8 x 26 1/8 inches. The rare first state of the celebrated world map by De l'Isle"one of the foremost cartographer's of the age" (Shirley) This highly important map proved to be one of the most influential world maps of its time, and is present here in the rare first state. De L'Isle was a much esteemed figure who, after being tutored by the great Jean-Dominique Cassini, became the geographer to the French Academy of Sciences in 1702, and then 'Premier Géographe' to Louis XV in 1718. Rodney Shirley notes that "De L'Isle's work is distinguished by its scientific basis, the minute care taken in all departments, constant revision, and personal integrity". In this map of the world, De l'Isle was among the first cartographers to re-establish California's true form as a peninsula, to give more or less accurate configurations to all five Great Lakes, and to show the full extent of the Mississippi. He was also one of the first to correct the attenuated form of the Mediterranean Sea. In fusing New Guinea and Australia, he followed William Dampier's presumed personal survey, but resisted the temptation to join Tasmania and New Zealand to Australia, an error soon to be popular. Curiously, the tip of South America is shown to curve sharply into the Pacific, a detail conspicuously amended in subsequent states of the map. The map also features the tracks of important circumnavigators including Magellan, Mendaña, Dampier, Van Noort, Le Maire & Schouten and the antipodean tracks of Abel Tasman.

This famous work was first published in 1696 and this second edition was issued in the author's lifetime. William Derham (1657-1735) was an Essex Clergyman and Canon of Windsor. "The term 'artificial', as used here, refers to clocks made by human skill as opposed to sundials or time-tellers dependent on the heavens. The work is one of the first attempts to give practical help to a working clockmaker and also to record a history of horology. There were five editions, some of which were translated into French or German" (Bromley). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING. POSTAGE AT COST.

        DELL'ISTORIA DI FERRARA SCRITTA DAL DOTTORE D. GIROLAMO BARUFFALDI FERRARESE LIBRI NOVE, NE' QUALI DIFFUSAMENTE SI NARRANO LE COSE AVVENUTE IN ESSA, DALL'ANNO M.DC.LV, FINO AL M.DCC [...].

      PER BERNARDINO POMATELLI 1700 Legatura coeva "alla rustica" in cartonnage color avorio con punte di pelle allumata alle cerniere e titolo manoscritto al dorso; al contropiatto anteriore, due ex-libris: Biblioteca Banzi e Rosita Levi Pisetzky . Bel frontespizio inciso su matrice di rame, con indicazione dell'artista: "Il Coriolano F(ecit)" - occhietto - frontespizio con fregio silografato - (24) - 556 pagine numerate. Al recto della carta successiva al frontespizio, in testa, arma civica di Ferrara sostenuta da angeli. Capilettera ornati a racemi e fregi tipografici silografati. Il volume è la prima edizione di un'importante opera sulla storia di Ferrara, composta da un noto erudito e letterato del luogo. Fra gli altri scritti di G. Baruffaldi senior sono oggi ricordate, in particolare, la Dissertatio de poetis Ferrariensibus (1698), Il Canapajo, le Vite de' pittori e scultori ferraresi, nonché versi giocosi, didascalici e ditirambi quali la Tabaccheide. Una certa solennità è conferita al volume dall'elenco dei "Signori Savi del Magistrato di Ferrara" posto in apertura. Di Baruffaldi è invece la prefazione del volume, nella quale l'autore discorre sulle caratteristiche della propria opera, precisando che essa va intesa come la continuazione delle storie di Ferrara precedentemente scritte da due altri eruditi: Gasparo Sardi e Agostino Faustini. Nei nove libri in cui è articolato il volume, le notizie storiche sono riportate in ordinata sequenza cronologica. Esemplare in ottimo stato conservativo, in barbe e dagli ampi margini, genuino e dall'interno assai fresco. Cfr. LOZZI C., "Biblioteca istorica della antica e nuova Italia [...]", vol.

Si tratta della riduzione della grande mappa murale dello stesso de Fer, pubblicata nel 1695 sotto gli auspici della Academie Royale des Sciences con criteri astronomici moderni. Numerosi sono comunque ancora gli errori geografici presenti: Australia e Nuova Guinea sono attacate, così come anche asia ed America; la California appare ancora come isola ed il Mississipi sfocia molto a sud est rispetto alla realtà. Negli angoli sono raffigurati vari fenomeni naturali ed atmosferici. In basso a destra vi è la nota editoriale "Chez l'autheur dans l'Isle du Palis sur le Quay de l'Orloge a la Sphere Royale" con data 1700; in alto al centro sotto al titolo c'è la dedica al Delfino di Francia ed una nota eitoriale con data 1705, segno di una evidente seconda tiratura. Buon esemplare con qualche strappetto restaurato (nel margine) rimarginata a sinistra ed in alto in modo speculare per circa 6 cm da entrambe le parti rispetto alla piega centrale, qualche traccia di umidità leggera. Shirley, 600, "Rare".

        L'Asia

      carta geografica del continente derivante da quella di Nicolas Sanson, edita a Parigi alla metà del XVII secolo. Editore, incisore e libraio, Paolo Petrini è attivo a Napoli tra il 1692 ed il 1748, realizzando numerose opere grafiche e topografiche, molto spesso derivandole da quelle di Sanson e Nicolas de Fer. La sua produzione è molto vasta e comprende centinaia di carte, molte delle quali ispirate al Mercurio Geografico della tipografia De Rossi di Roma. Tutta la sua opera è estremamente rara. E? molto probabile che il Petrini, piccolo editore locale con rari scambi all?estero, si ispiri alla carta dell?Asia del De Rossi che deriva dall?originale del Sanson. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva con ritocchi, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 550x405. Paolo Petrini, publisher, engraver and book trader, worked in Naples between 1692 and 1748, realizing cartographic and topographic works, very often after Sanson?s and Nicolas de Fer?s prints. His huge production includes hundreds of maps, especially those inspired to the Mercurio Geografico, and is extremely rare. As a matter of fact, this map derives probably from the one realized by De Rossi, who I his turn took inspiration from Sanson. Copper engraving, contemporary colour with touches, in excellent condition. Napoli Naples 550 405

        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.
