      1700. [Paris], c.1700. Beautifully handcoloured Original Engraving (copper engraving). 59 cm wide x 49 cm high. Excellent condition of this beautiful original 18th century map. Gerard Valck ou Gerardus Valk, né à Amsterdam le 30 septembre 16521- et y décédé le 21 octobre 17262 était un marchand d'images et de plaques d'imprimerie du Dam. Il se spécialisa en cartographie et la fabrication de mappemondes. Ses globes terrestres et célestes amenaient une nouveauté au sens qu'il respectait les dernières préceptes des scientifiques, à savoir moins de textes et moins d'images, alors que ses concurrents directs conservaient le projet de la firme Blaeu, qui s'était basé sur Tycho Brahe.nnAinsi après quelques années, la maison Valck/Schenk obtint le monopole absolu en matière de fabrication et vente de globes. Les globes et mappemondes de Valck se vendirent durant tout le XVIIIe siècle. (Wikipedia).

        A New and Accurate Description of the Coast of Guinea, divided into the Gold, the Slave, and the Ivory Coasts.

      [8]+493+[19 (including 3 of advertisements)] pages with folding frontispiece map by Moll and one of the seven engraved plates. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 4 3/4") bound in full leather. (Cardinall 256; Goldsmiths 4153; Hogg 144b) First English edition.It is fortunate that there is a case for a period picture at the beginning of the eighteenth century, as there is for the purpose the brilliant account of the country's human geography by William Bosman. His work A new and Accurate Description of the Coast of Guinea, was written originally as a series of letters between 1700 and 1702. It was first published in book form in Dutch in 1703 and was followed by an accurate English edition a year later. Bosman left the country of 27 July 1702 after a stay of fourteen years. He was chief factor for the Dutch, and his trading interests took him to most parts of Southern Ghana. Bosman's work is easily the most reliable of the major works on the country produced in the eighteenth century. It thoroughly covered Southern Ghana which was fairly well known to Europeans, but was hardly concerned with Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, the inland sections of Volta Region, and Northern Ghana, about which Bosman and other Europeans only had scraps of information collected from local Ghanaian merchants. It is nevertheless possible to make good the deficiency from other sources.The end of the seventeenth century marked a beginning of change in the development of the country's human geography. After about 1700 a series of struggles occurred among tribes with ambitions for territorial aggrandizement. Such events were known before, but the emergence of the Ashanti nation from the confusion of inter-tribal warfare as the most formidable power in the land acted as a catalyst that completely altered the character, speed and magnitude of the change of events. The human geography of Ghana took a new turn with the rise of the Ashanti. In appearance the countryside was one vast wilderness of uniformly thick forest and savanna vegetation relieved in only a few places by clearings for settlements and farms. But hidden within the forest and the savanna, and never seen by Europeans, were a vast number of rural settlements in which most of the country's population lived. Of the total size of the population no estimate can be made. I could not have been very large in view of the frequent inter-tribal wars since the final decade of the seventeenth century in which large numbers of people lost their lives or fled to neighboring countries. Ahanta, for example, was seriously depopulated through the fatal war with Adom which began in 1690 or 1691 and continued for four years. The few that survived the war in Ahanta sought protection under the Dutch for at Butri, while the greatest part of the land lay wild and uncultivated. Yet before the war the countryside of Ahanta "regaled the eyes with pleasant prospect of numerous villages well peopled." The same was true of the the states of Axim, Ankobra, Abocroe and Egwira which together could provide just over 3,000 armed men. Denkera also was completely sacked by the Ashanti in 1701 after a prolonged deadly war, and the looting, accompanied by indiscriminate slaughter of the Denkera, occupied the victorious Ashanti for fifteen days. Again, the Akwamu, through a series of wars begun towards the close of the seventeenth century, destroyed and caused considerable depopulation of the middle Densu basin and the Accra Plains. Similar reductions in population size must have occurred in Northern Ghana and elsewhere as a result of the many tribal wars. The death rate among those wounded in the wars was also high because of inadequate medical facilities. On the other hand Ashanti, which had suffered no crippling conquests and invasions, must have had a larger population than many areas of the country. Equally devastating were the numerous epidemics that periodically swept over the country. The two most deadly were smallpox and guinea worm disease, which Bosman referred to as "national diseases". Within the last two decades of the seventeenth century thousands of men perished through an epidemic of smallpox. Guinea worm disease, which as far as Bosman could observe appeared to be endemic on the whole coast, also contributed significantly to the high death rate, and there was no certain cure for either of the two diseases. Life expectation appears to have been low. "It is observable", wrote Bosman, "that there are several grey-headed people who look as if they were old, but indeed are not so; this perhaps may be owing to their too early and excessive venery, by which they do enfeeble themselves, that a man of fifty (a good old age here), seized by any sickness, generally leaves this world." Although Bosman's explanation of "too early and excessive venery" may not be valid, it was probably true that the life span for most of the population was short. It is further possible that women lived longer than and outnumbered men because of the latter's frequent involvement in war. Birth as well as infant mortality rate may also have been high. Forming an insignificant proportion of the coastal population were Europeans, who were confined to their forts, an mulattoes, the offspring of marriage or liaison between European men and African women. The mulattoes, who also lived mainly in the coastal settlements, constituted a social problem for they were accepted by neither Europeans nor Africans. Some of them were merchants, but the majority served the Dutch as soldiers. The death rate among the resident European population, which by any estimate could not have numbered more than three hundred, was high because of malaria and sunstroke, against which they had no efficacious remedies. New arrivals on the coast were more prone to malarial attacks and other discomforts, but once they survived their first few months they no longer faced the prospect of certain death through those ailments. Bosman made some shrewd observations on the need for Europeans to adapt their clothing to suit the climate, and to desist from excessive indulgence in drinking alcohol, although he conceded that Europeans at Kormantin and Apam where prone to infection by guinea worm because of the foul water they were obliged to drink there. Condition:New spine with original boards, map rebacked with edge repair and some spotting, some spotting through out with some occasion neat old marginalia. Title with previous owner's name marked out, some edge wear to some of the pages with some soiling else a good copy of a scarce title.

        Traité contre Celse ou défense de la religion chrétienne contre les accusations des Païens.

      Amsterdam, chez Henry Desbordes, 1700, in 4°, de 9ff. et un front. gravé de Romeyn de Hooghe & 480pp., pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, frappé en queue aux petites armes du Dauphin. Exemplaire du philosophe A. Blanc de Saint-Bonnet avec une longue note de sa main en tête " Acheté à Paris en mars 1836 au prix de 3 tt. Adol. Blanc - St. Bonnet ... Cet ouvrage passe pour le meilleur d'Origène etc...". Il avait alors 21 ans et était étudiant en droit à Paris où il séjourna jusqu'en 1839, et fréquenta Edgar Quinet et Pierre-Simon Ballanche. Il publia son ouvrage en 3 volumes "De l'Unité spirituelle ou de la société et de son but au-delà du temps" en 1841, à l'âge de 26 ans. Très intéressante provenance. Première traduction française du célèbre traité d'Origène. Il est considéré comme le père de l'exégèse biblique dans une ?uvre exégétique gigantesque, par son étendue, mais aussi par l'ampleur de son information et l'élan spirituel qui l'anime. Sa doctrine mystique se rapproche de celle des Gnostiques. Le «Contre Celse», composé en 248, est la dernière des ?uvres d'Origène. Il nous livre l'ultime expression de sa pensée et comme son testament. En réfutant le «Discours véritable» de Celse, Origène propose en réalité une apologie monumentale du christianisme, qui garde encore aujourd'hui toute sa valeur et sa force. ¶ Caillet n°8209 " Ouvrage rare et des plus curieux. On y trouve une doctrine prodigieuse touchant les diverses sectes de gnostiques et plus d'intelligence de l'ésotérisme que l'on a coutume d'en voir chez les autres Pères" (S. de Guaita) - cat.

        Ölgemälde eines bärtigen Mannes. Öl auf Platte, signiert.

      Porträt eines bärtigen Mannes. Bildmaß: 37 x 32 cm ( Öl auf Platte ), alt gerahmt ( Rahmenmaß: 51 x 46 cm ), Öl auf Platte in dünnem Farbauftrag. Das Gemälde rechts unten mit *Francois Pinot * etwas undeutlich signiert, undatiert ( wohl um 1700 - 1800 ). Gezeigt wird im Porträt ein Mann mit großem Vollbart, am Brustkorb oben mit Andeutung eines Brustharnisches. Laut Auskunft des Vorbesitzers möglicherweise ein Bildnis eines Hugenotten aus Frankreich. Als ausführender Künstler ist mir nur ein Architekt des Namens aus Straßburg, Frankreich bekannt der ca. Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts tätig war ( vergleiche Thieme-Becker, Band XXVII, Seite 63 ). Die Malweise erinnert an Francois Edouard PICOT (1786-1868), in der Signatur aber zu diesem abweichend. Das Gemälde im dünnen Farbautrag gemalt etwas berieben, gering fleckig, der Rahmen etwas bestoßen. Laut Auskunft des Vorbesitzers ein Bild aus Frankreich, möglicherweise aus Hugenotten-Besitz.

        Abrégé d'histoire universelle. [avec :] Histoire de l'ancienne Grèce.

      (vers 1700-1707). ____ Manuscrit inédit et dont on ne connaît que quelques copies. Celle-ci est aux armes de Samuel Bernard, célèbre financier, qui connaissait l'auteur, puisque son fils Gabriel Bernard de Rieux épousa la fille de Boulainvilliers. "Boulainvilliers critique nombre d'auteurs d'histoire; il ne craint pas de s'en prendre à l'Ecriture elle-même, au nom de la vérité historique, ou même au nom de la vérité tout court. (...) Sa conception de l'histoire est donc très riche et très complexe, et éminemment originale pour l'époque à laquelle elle a été formulée, c'est à dire entre 1695 et 1710. Et il ne parait pas excessif de vouloir retirer à Voltaire la paternité de la conception moderne de l'histoire pour la rendre en toute équité à Henri de Boulainvilliers." (Renée Simon. Henry de Boulainviller. Historien, politique, philosophe, astrologue.) Le Comte Henri de Boulainvilliers (1658-1722) a laissé une quantité de manuscrits, car il ne se souciait pas de faire publier ses ouvrages. Esprit très libre, on a dit de lui qu'il n'était "peut-être pas un athée de système, mais à coup sûr un athée de tempérament." On lui a attribué de nombreux textes tendant à l'athéisme et anti-religieux. Boulainvilliers "n'épargne pas les critiques à la narration biblique de la création ou au récit du déluge. S'il respecte pourtant la chronologie des Écritures, tout en élargissant à la version des Septante, c'est sans doute qu'il croit avoir été trop loin dans sa décision de rejeter "la servitude de la lettre" pour s'approcher dangereusement de "la licence des libertins".

      - Autograph letter, signed, from the French scientist Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau (1700-1782) to the French minister of foreign affairs, Gabriel de Choiseul (1718-1785), Duc de Praslin. Choiseul had sent Duhamel a memoire by Claude-Jules Cousinery (1718-1785), French consul in Syrian (now Lebanese) Tripoli, and asked his opinion of it. Duhamel thanks him for the "excellent memoire de M Couzineri", says it is the best he has seen on the subject and notes Cousinery's "sages reflections". He continues "La justesse d'esprit la bontée du coeur le zele du bon citoyen se montrent partout." It even helped distract Duhamel from his "terrible siatique" (terrible sciatica). The letter says nothing about the memoire's content, but an early manuscript note on the back adds the year 1762 to the date and and indicates that it belongs under the subject Levant and Barbary. The Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences for the year 1760, published in 1766, pp. 23-24, gives a summary of Cousinery's report on the great Syrian earthquake of 30 October 1759 sent to Duhamel: "nous l'apprenons d'une relation que M. Cousinery (Chacelier du Consulat de Tripoly de Syrie) a envoyée à M. du Hamel".With an early manuscript note on the back of the letter. Formerly folded horizontally and vertically for posting. In very good condition. The portrait is trimmed down to the border, but is also in very good condition.

        Histoire des Isles Mariannes nouvellement converties à la religion chrétienne & de la mort glorieuse des premiers Missionnaires qui y ont prêché la Foy

      Paris: Nicolas Pepie, 1700. [xxiii]+433+[13 table] pages with two folding maps of the Marsianes and Guam. Duodecimo (6 1/2 x3 1/4") bound in contemporary full sheep with red label in gilt spine and five raised spine bands, speckled red end pages. (Brunet 28230, Cioranescu 41783) First edition.Charles Le Gobien was a French Jesuit writer, founder of the Lettres édifiantes et curieuses a collection of reports from Jesuit missionaries in China. It is a major source of information for the history of Catholic missions and life in China in those times. Le Gobien was born at Saint-Malo, Brittany. He entered the Society of Jesus on 25 November 1671. As professor of philosophy and especially while procurator of the Franco-Chinese mission, he sought in a series of papers to awaken interest in the work of Christianizing Eastern Asia. In 1697 appeared at Paris his Lettres sur les progréz de la religion à la Chine. Apropos of Chinese Rites controversy, he published among other things Histoire de l'édit de l'empereur de la Chine en faveur de la religion chrétienne avec un éclaircissement sur les honneurs que les Chinois rendent à Confucius et aux morts (Paris, 1698); and in the year 1700: Lettre à un Docteur de la Faculté de Paris sur les propositions déférées en Sorbonne par M. Prioux. Under the same date there appeared in Paris the Histoire des Isles Mariannes nouvellement converties à la religion chrétienne. The second part, translated into Spanish by J. Delgado, is found in the latter's Historia General de Filipinas (Manila, 1892). In 1702 Père Le Gobien published Lettres de quelques missionnaires de la Compagnie de Jésus, écrites de la Chine et des Indes Orientales; this was the beginning of the collection soon to become celebrated under the title of Lettres édifiantes et curieuses écrites des missions étrangéres par quelques missionnaires de la Compagnie de Jésus. The first eight series were by Le Gobien, the latter ones by Fathers Du Halde, Patouillet, Geoffroy, and Maréchal. The collection was printed in thirty-six volumes duodecimo (Paris, 1703–76), and reissued in 1780-81 by Fathers Yves, de Querbeux, and Brotier in twenty-six volumes duodecimo, omitting the prefaces. New editions appeared in 1819, 1829–32, and 1838-43. One abridgment in four volumes octavo, was entitled Panthéon Littéraire, by L. Aimé Martin (1834–43). A partial English translation came out in London in 1714. The publication incited the Austrian Jesuit Stöcklein to undertake his Neuer Welt Bott (about 1720), at first considered merely a translation, but soon an independent and particularly valuable collection (five volumes, folio in forty parts) substantially completing the Lettres Edifiantes.This is a history of the Christian missions in the Marianas or Ladrones Islands in the north-western Pacific, the principal island of which is Guam. Reprinted in the text are several letters from early missionaries (Medina, Clain, Sanvitores, &c.). The Jesuit mission was established there by Diego Luis de Sanvitores. Father Le Gobien never visited the Mariana islands but based his account chiefly on the relations and letters of missionaries sent to him from Rome, Spain, the Netherlands etc. Includes a letter by P. Clain about the discovery of the Caroline Islands.Condition:Rebacked with original spine laid down, provenance: Jesuit College library with old stamps to front free endpaper, half title and title page else about very good.

Five years before his death in 1754, Adam decided to sell his collection. He suggested to potential buyers form a gallery, decorate a library, living room, or finally enrich academy. Coming from a family of sculptors, Adam won the Prix de Rome in 1723 and lived a decade in the eternal city, protected by Cardinal de Polignac, Ambassador of France to Rome. He made contact with a specialty of Rome sculpture fountains (Neptune fountain at Versailles). --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Cette province est aujourd'hui à cheval entre la France et la Belgique. Ce rapport a été établi à la suite de la demande faite dans toutes les provinces de France à la fin du XVIIe siècle, par le Duc de Beauvillier, pour l'instruction de son élève le Duc de Bourgogne, petit-fils de Louis XIV. L'enquête se déroula de 1697 à 1700 et avait pour but de présenter un tableau exact du royaume. Ce mémoire circulait sous forme manuscrite et rares sont les exemplaires qui nous sont parvenus.

      , 1700. [Paris], c. 1700. Original copper engraved maps. 16 cm wide x 13.2 cm high. Mounted on paper. Very good condition. From a wonderful collection of Maps from an old english library (South Shields) - with a tiny library stamp to the mounting paper (The stamp is NOT on the Map). Nicolas de Fer (1646?25 October 1720) was a French cartographer and geographer.nDe Fer was the youngest of three sons of Antoine de Fer, who was also a cartographer. When he was 12, he became the apprentice of Parisian engraver Louis Spirinx, and made his first map, of the Canal du Midi, at the age of 23. After the death of his father in June 1673, his mother Geneviève initially took over the map making company, which had begun to decline. She passed it and the atelier, called Quai de L'Horloge, on to Nicolas in 1687 because of her old age.nDe Fer was so successful at improving the firm that, in 1690, he became the official geographer to Louis, Dauphin of France. With support from the Spanish and French Royal Families, de Fer also became official geographer for Philip V and Louis XIV, the kings of Spain and France, respectively. Because of this, his maps became Bourbon propaganda, endorsing French King Louis XIV. nHis business flourished, producing town plans, atlases, wall maps, and more than 600 sheet maps. He made maps of places in Europe and North America, including New Spain, places fortified by Vauban, the Low Countries, and the War of the Spanish Succession. In 1698, de Fer published a map of North America, which included a depiction of beavers building dams near Niagara Falls. Seventeen years later, Herman Moll published a map which plagiarized elements of de Fer's work, particularly the beaver scene. It became known as the "Beaver map". De Fer became the official geographer for His Catholic Majesty in 1720. Two of his sons-in-law, Guillaume Danet and Jaques-François Bénard, continued the company after de Fer's death on 25 October of that year until around 1760.n(Wikipedia)nn

        Tabulae Manuales Logarithmicae ad Calculum Astronomicum, in specie Tabb. Rudolphinarum compendiose tractandum mire utiles. Ob defectum prioris Editionis Saganensis multum hactenus desideratae. Quibus accessit in hac Editione Introductio nova curante Joh. Casp. Eisenschmid.

      Strasbourg: Johannes Pastorius for Theodor Lerse, 1700. Rare second edition (the first obtainable edition) of the logarithmic tables used in calculating the celebrated Rudolphine Tables. Caspar records only one copy of the first edition, published in Sagan in 1631, and that defective, in the University Library of Königsberg. Jacob Bartsch (1600-1633) was Kepler's son-in-law. After Kepler died in 1630, Bartsch decided that Kepler's logarithms should be made available in a less expensive form than the Rudolphine Tables published in 1627 (the first work to introduce logarithms into the field of astronomy). The intention was to fund the printing by collecting the salery owned owed to Kepler. However, due to failure of his journey to Vienna to collect the money, the printing was stopped and the distribution of the 1631 edition was practically nil. This second edition was brought out by John Caspar Eisenschmid in 1700 and in his introduction he gives a detailed account of the fate of the first edition. This second edition is by no means a common book on the market (ABPC lists only two copies in the past fifty years; 1971 and 1984). A very fine copy, complete with the errata leaf. Caspar 99; Erwin Tomash Library on the History of Computing K-28; Houzeau and Lancaster 12757; Lalande p.338. Six parts in one volume. 8vo: 154 x 92 mm. Fine contemporary vellum with the original clasps intact. Pp. 40, (276), (2:errata). Title page with some very light spotting, otherwise fine and clean throughout.

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.

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. FineCats 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.

        Abrégé d'histoire universelle. [avec :] Histoire de l'ancienne Grèce.

      (vers 1700-1707). ____ Manuscrit inédit et dont on ne connaît que quelques copies. Celle-ci est aux armes de Samuel Bernard, célèbre financier, qui connaissait l'auteur, puisque son fils Gabriel Bernard de Rieux épousa la fille de Boulainvilliers. "Boulainvilliers critique nombre d'auteurs d'histoire; il ne craint pas de s'en prendre à l'Ecriture elle-même, au nom de la vérité historique, ou même au nom de la vérité tout court. (...) Sa conception de l'histoire est donc très riche et très complexe, et éminemment originale pour l'époque à laquelle elle a été formulée, c'est à dire entre 1695 et 1710. Et il ne parait pas excessif de vouloir retirer à Voltaire la paternité de la conception moderne de l'histoire pour la rendre en toute équité à Henri de Boulainvilliers." (Renée Simon. Henry de Boulainviller. Historien, politique, philosophe, astrologue.) Le Comte Henri de Boulainvilliers (1658-1722) a laissé une quantité de manuscrits, car il ne se souciait pas de faire publier ses ouvrages. Esprit très libre, on a dit de lui qu'il n'était "peut-être pas un athée de système, mais à coup sûr un athée de tempérament." On lui a attribué de nombreux textes tendant à l'athéisme et anti-religieux. Boulainvilliers "n'épargne pas les critiques à la narration biblique de la création ou au récit du déluge. S'il respecte pourtant la chronologie des Écritures, tout en élargissant à la version des Septante, c'est sans doute qu'il croit avoir été trop loin dans sa décision de rejeter "la servitude de la lettre" pour s'approcher dangereusement de "la licence des libertins".

         Traité contre Celse ou défense de la religion chrétienne contre les accusations des Païens.

      Amsterdam, chez Henry Desbordes, 1700, in 4°, de 9ff. et un front. gravé de Romeyn de Hooghe & 480pp., pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, frappé en queue aux petites armes du Dauphin. Exemplaire du philosophe A. Blanc de Saint-Bonnet avec une longue note de sa main en tête " Acheté à Paris en mars 1836 au prix de 3 tt. Adol. Blanc - St. Bonnet ... Cet ouvrage passe pour le meilleur d'Origène etc...". Il avait alors 21 ans et était étudiant en droit à Paris où il séjourna jusqu'en 1839, et fréquenta Edgar Quinet et Pierre-Simon Ballanche. Il publia son ouvrage en 3 volumes "De l'Unité spirituelle ou de la société et de son but au-delà du temps" en 1841, à l'âge de 26 ans. Très intéressante provenance. Première traduction française du célèbre traité d'Origène. Il est considéré comme le père de l'exégèse biblique dans une ?uvre exégétique gigantesque, par son étendue, mais aussi par l'ampleur de son information et l'élan spirituel qui l'anime. Sa doctrine mystique se rapproche de celle des Gnostiques. Le «Contre Celse», composé en 248, est la dernière des ?uvres d'Origène. Il nous livre l'ultime expression de sa pensée et comme son testament. En réfutant le «Discours véritable» de Celse, Origène propose en réalité une apologie monumentale du christianisme, qui garde encore aujourd'hui toute sa valeur et sa force. ¶ Caillet n°8209 " Ouvrage rare et des plus curieux. On y trouve une doctrine prodigieuse touchant les diverses sectes de gnostiques et plus d'intelligence de l'ésotérisme que l'on a coutume d'en voir chez les autres Pères" (S. de Guaita) - cat. S. de Guaita n°1934- Quérard Fr. litt. VI. 499.

        Vintage Maps of Cambodia, Ceylon and Maledives with India: "Presqu' Isle de L'Indedela le Golfe du Gange" AND Presqu' Isle de L'Inde de la le Golfe du Gange" [with Golf de Siam , Bankok etc.] / With an additional map mounted verso: "Amerique Meridionale" [showing Central America and South America from Isles de Caribes to the "Detroit de Magellan"].

      , 1700. [Paris], c. 1700. Original copper engraved maps. 16 cm wide x 13.2 cm high. Mounted on paper. Very good condition. From a wonderful collection of Maps from an old english library (South Shields) - with a tiny library stamp to the mounting paper (The stamp is NOT on the Map). Nicolas de Fer (1646?25 October 1720) was a French cartographer and geographer.nDe Fer was the youngest of three sons of Antoine de Fer, who was also a cartographer. When he was 12, he became the apprentice of Parisian engraver Louis Spirinx, and made his first map, of the Canal du Midi, at the age of 23. After the death of his father in June 1673, his mother Geneviève initially took over the map making company, which had begun to decline. She passed it and the atelier, called Quai de L'Horloge, on to Nicolas in 1687 because of her old age.nDe Fer was so successful at improving the firm that, in 1690, he became the official geographer to Louis, Dauphin of France. With support from the Spanish and French Royal Families, de Fer also became official geographer for Philip V and Louis XIV, the kings of Spain and France, respectively. Because of this, his maps became Bourbon propaganda, endorsing French King Louis XIV. nHis business flourished, producing town plans, atlases, wall maps, and more than 600 sheet maps. He made maps of places in Europe and North America, including New Spain, places fortified by Vauban, the Low Countries, and the War of the Spanish Succession. In 1698, de Fer published a map of North America, which included a depiction of beavers building dams near Niagara Falls. Seventeen years later, Herman Moll published a map which plagiarized elements of de Fer's work, particularly the beaver scene. It became known as the "Beaver map". De Fer became the official geographer for His Catholic Majesty in 1720. Two of his sons-in-law, Guillaume Danet and Jaques-François Bénard, continued the company after de Fer's death on 25 October of that year until around 1760.n(Wikipedia)nn

        Analyse des infiniment petits, pour l'intelligence des lignes courbes. Paris: L'imprimerie Royale, 1696. [Bound with :] CARRÉ, Louis. Methode pour la mesure des surfaces, la dimension des solides, leurs centres de pesanteur, de percussion et d'oscillation, par l'application du calcul intégral.

      Paris: L'imprimerie Royale / Jean Boudot, 1696/1700. A fine sammelband comprising the first editions of the first books on the differential and integral calculus, respectively. "It was through his wide network of acquaintances in various European countries that Leibniz put into effect all his strategies for the spread of his analysis. The presence first of Jacob Hermann, the favourite pupil of Jacob Bernoulli, and then of Nicolaus I Bernoulli, the nephew of the Bernoulli brothers, as professors of mathematics in Padua was one outlet ... In France it was through the Oratorian circle of Nicolas Malebranche (1638-1715) that Johann Bernoulli introduced in 1691 the Leibnizian calculus. His lessons to the Marquis de l'Hôpital led to the draft of the first treatise of differential calculus (1696) [first offered work], and it was under the influence of Malebranche that some years later appeared the first works on the integral calculus by Louis Carré in 1700 [second offered work] and Charles René Reyneau in 1708. The spread and acceptance of the Leibnizian calculus was transferred in this way to the wide public, through the manuals and textbooks written for students at universities or ecclesiastical colleges." (Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, p.56). "Following the classical custom, [the first work] starts with a set of definitions and axioms... The difference (differential) is defined as the infinitely small portion by which a variable quantity increases or decreases continuously. Of the two axioms, the first postulates that quantities which differ only by infinitely small amounts may be substituted for one another, while the second states that a curve may be thought of as a polygonal line with an infinite number of infinitely small sides such that the angle between adjacent lines determines the curvature of the curve. Following the axioms, the basic rules of the differential calculus are given and exemplified. The second chapter applies these rules to the determination of the tangent to a curve in a given point... The third chapter deals with maximum-minimum problems and includes examples drawn from mechanics and geography. Next comes a treatment of points of inflection and cusps. This involves the introduction of higher-order differentials, each supposed infinitely small compared to its predecessor. Later chapters deal with evolutes and with caustics. L'Hospital's rule is given in chapter 9" (DSB VIII: 304). Jean Bernoulli complained that he had not been given enough credit for his contributions, but L'Hospital himself, in the introduction to the book, does acknowledge his debt to both the Bernoulli brothers and to Leibniz: "Je reconnois devoir beaucoup aux lumieres de Mrs Bernoulli, surtout a celles du jeune presentement Professeur a Groningue. Je me suis servi sans façon de leurs découvertes & de celles de M. Leibniz." Born into a noble family, L'Hospital (1661-1704) abandoned a military career due to poor eyesight to pursue his interest in mathematics. He was a member of Malebranche's circle in Paris and it was there that in 1691 he met the young Jean Bernoulli, who was visiting France and agreed to supplement his Paris talks on calculus with private lectures to l'Hospital at his estate at Oucques. In 1693, l'Hospital was elected to the Academy of Sciences, and served twice as its vice-president. By contrast, Carré (1663-1711) came from a humble family. He studied theology for three years in Paris before taking a secretarial position with Malebranche, who introduced him to mathematics. Two years after publishing the present work he was appointed surveyor to the Academy of Sciences, and in 1706 he became resident engineer. I.

        Navigationes Praecipuae Europaeorum ad exteras Nationes

      1700. "Interessante e decorativa carta del mondo che riporta le rotte delle prime navigazione dall'Europa all'Asia, includendo una rotta per il Giappone attraverso il passaggio nord-est. E 'possibile che le rotte riportate sulla mappa siano quelle che furono seguite dai missionari gesuiti. La mappa, in maniera insolita, mostra l'Australia nel centro. I galeoni situati negli angoli della mappa simboleggiano i viaggi dei Francesi verso la di Nuova Francia, degli Olandesi verso le Indie Orientali, degli Inglesi alla volta di New England, e degli Spagnoli in Messico e Perù. Come si vede anche in questa mappa, Scherer ritrae la California come un'isola. Pubblicata nell'opera di Heinrich Scherer ""Atlas Novus exhibens orbem terraguem per naturae opera, historiae navae acveterus monumenta, artistique geographicae leges et praecepta.."" edito in 8 parti, dal 1702 al 1710 a Monaco. Incisione su rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione." This engraved world map showing primarily the sailing routes from Europe to Asia, including a rather optimistic route to Japan via the Northeast Passage. It is possible that the routes shown on the map were those used by Jesuit missionaries. The unusually formatted map has Australia in the center. The galleons located in the corners of the map symbolize the voyages of the French to New France, the Dutch to the East Indies, the English to New England, and the Spanish to Mexico and Peru. As shown, Scherer portrays California as an island and other newly charted lands, such as Australia and New Zealand. By Heinrich Scherer for his Atlas Novus exhibens orbem terraguem per naturae opera, historiae navae acveterus monumenta, artistique geographicae leges et praecepta...published in eight volumes from 1702-1710 in Munich. Scherer, a devout Jesuit, produced this geographical compendium to depict the Catholic hierarchy and the spread of Jesuit missions throughout the world. Copper engraving, in very good condition.

      Printed for Dan. Midwinter and Tho. Leigh, London 1700 - 464 pp Royal octavo. rebound in full brown calf with lighter panelled inlays tooled in blind, spine with raised bands, gilt and gilt lettered burgundy morocco label, all edges gilt. George Stanhope (5 March 1660 Ð 18 March 1728) was a clergyman of the Church of England, rising to be Dean of Canterbury and a Royal Chaplain. He was also amongst the commissioners responsible for the building of fifty new churches in London, and a leading figure in church politics of the early 18th century. Stanhope also founded the Stanhope School in 1715.George was born on 5 March 1660 at Hartshorne, near Swadlincote in south Derbyshire, son of Thomas Stanhope, rector of Hartshorne, Derbyshire,[2] vicar of St Margaret's Church, Leicester, and chaplain to the Earls of Chesterfield and Clare. His grandfather, George Stanhope (d. 1644), was canon and precentor of York from 1631, and was rector of Wheldrake, Yorkshire, and chaplain to James I and Charles I; he was dispossessed during the Commonwealth. The younger George was educated at Uppingham School in Rutland, Eton College and King's College in Cambridge. He graduated in 1681 and obtained his Master of Arts in 1685 and entered into Holy Orders, however he remained three years longer at Cambridge. In 1687 he was appointed curate of Stow cum Quy, Cambridgeshire, and in 1688 he was appointed rector of Tewin, Hertfordshire (Tewin Register), and on 3 August 1689 of Lewisham, Kent, being presented to the latter by Lord Dartmouth, to whose son he was tutor, both then and apparently for five years afterwards. He became a Doctor of Divinity in 1697, and he was appointed chaplain to William and Mary. In 1701 he was appointed Boyle lecturer. In the year following he was presented to the vicarage of Deptford, was reappointed Royal chaplain by Queen Anne, and on 23 March 1704 was made Dean of Canterbury, still retaining Lewisham and Deptford. -wikipedia.
