        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, handcolored in outline. Sheet size: 17 1/8 x 26 1/8 inches. Good condition, cut to just within the plate mark, with expert repairs to margins and central fold. 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 of all five Great Lakes, and to show the full extent of the Mississippi. He was also one of the first to correct the exaggerative attenuated form of the Mediterranean Sea. In fusing New Guinea and Australia, he followed William Dampier's presumably 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 and Schouten, and the antipodean tracks of Abel Tasman. SHIRLEY, THE MAPPING OF THE WORLD: EARLY PRINTED WORLD MAPS 1472-1700, 603, plate 416. WAGNER NORTHWEST COAST 461.

        Atlas contractus sive mapparum geographicarum Sansoniarum auctarum et correctarum nova congeries

      Amsterdam: Petrus Schenck, ca. 1700. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. Folio (530 x 320 mm). Bound in contemporary marbled boards (sympathetically repaired), corners worn and spine partially defective. COMPLETE with engraved title-page and 26 double-page maps, all colored by a contemporary hand, plus the engraved Index leaf ("Atlas Minor") bound in at end. Soiling throughout, some corners of maps worn, unobtrusive stablizing repairs, childish penciled scribble on verso of one map, small burn hole in lower cover extending through Index leaf and final three maps (not objectionable). A well used but honest copy in a contemporary binding, with original hand-colouring throughout, and absolutely complete. Complete, hand-coloured copy of the First Edition of the first Atlas published by Petrus Schenk the Elder (1660-1718/9), the important and prolific Amsterdam map-maker. The maps are by various authorities: Janssonius, Nic. Visscher, Danckerts, De Wit, Van Keulen, Ottens, Hondius, Valk, and Peter Schenk himself. The Sanson maps are the first ones that Schenk published. The fine frontispiece was designed by G. de Lairesse and engraved by Jac. Baptist after a drawing by Phil. Tideman. It depicts Neptune, a woman representing Europe who gestures towards a massive globe, at the base of which two putti engage in cartography, in the foreground are two lions, and in the background the massive figure of Atlas holding the world. Some of the maps have elaborate figures by none other than Romeyn de Hooghe. While the great World map, and the map of North and South America are justly celebrated, and frequently reproduced, of particular interest to us is the map of "Belgii Pars Septentrionalis communi nomine Vulgo Hollandia" which has been overlooked by virtually all authorities: at the top there is an inset map of the East Coast of the United States, in which are specifically named "Niew Neederland," "Nova Anglia," "Lang Eylant," "Niew Iarsey," "Niew Jorck," "Pennsylvania," and "Virginia." There is also a charming view of New York City taken from the Battery. Our copy collates exactly as per Koeman, and - more importantly - with the engraved list of maps bound in at the end, namely: 26 maps + the title page (see below); Koeman describes this edition as the first, noting that Schenk then begin issuing composite volumes under the same title, containing reimpressions of the present maps, plus some "new" maps, plus maps from other atlases. By definition, the number of maps in these later volumes varied from copy to copy. It is noteworthy the restrikes of the present maps are characterized by significantly inferior impressions, as we would expect considering that some of the plates had been in continuous use for 10-15 years. CONTENTS: 1. Titulus (erased ink inscription on back of Europa and chest of Atlas; lion's eyes dotted with pencil; one putti outlined in black ink). 2. Nova orbis Tabula. 3. America (tear along lower plate mark with loss of a portion of blank margin). 4. Africa. 5. Asia. 6. Europa. 7. Moscovia sive Russia. 8. Suesia Scandanavia. Dania et Norvegia. 9. Dania. 10.

Engraved list of maps: "Atlas Minor ex optimurum & probatissimorum virorum et praesertim Sansonianis, mappis accuratissimis, a Petro Schenck." That most copies of the first edition of the "Atlas Contractus" have been dismembered by printsellers is attested by the fact that only 9 copies worldwide have been located: Tulane, Syracuse, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, University Library Groningen, Topografische Dienst Delft, Museum Plantin-Moretus Antwerp, Stadsbibliotheek Maastricht, Tilburg University Library, University of Groningen Library. Rare on the market: the only copy of this first edition that we have been able to trace was sold nearly 60 years ago (Sotheby's London, 9 April 1956, lot 295). Provenance: Carlo Bourbon del Monte, 4th Prince of San Faustino (1868-1917) -- by descent to his son, Ranieri Bourbon del Monte, 5th Prince of San Faustino (1900-1977) -- by descent to his wife, the American Lydia Bodrero (1902-2009) -- by descent to her son, Montino Bourbon del Monte, 6th Prince of San Faustino, Marchese del Monte Santa Maria, of Santa Barbara, CA (b. 1942).

        Abraham of Lontesano, Rabbi of Constantinople.

      Amsterdam 18th century - Oil on canvas, 81.5 x 64 cm. Inscribed "Abraham de Lontesano grand Rabin de Constantinople assistent à l'Université de jerusalem / fait par F. W. Güte" on the reverse. A fine oil painting featuring the renowned Greek Rabbi, Abraham ben Raphael Lonzano. Abraham ben Raphael Lonzano - sometimes spelled Lontesano - born around 1700 in Zakinthos, a Greek island, was a Kabbalist and Hebrew grammarian. He became known through his work on Hebrew grammar titled "Kinyan Avraham". Following anti-semitic attacks on the local population, Lonzano left the country and started travelling around Europe. He studied at the yeshivah "Ez Hayyim" in Amsterdam, where he likely met the artist. Eventually settling down in Prague, he criticized local yeshivah scholars for studying the Torah without knowledge of the Hebrew language. Lonzano wrote "Hamishah Kinyanim", a commentary to the Sefer Yezirah, the "Book of Formation / Creation". At the end of his life he converted to Christianity in the Prussian town of Idstein and adopted the name Willhelm Heinrich Neumann.

      [Paris] 1700 - Original copper engraved maps. [Paris], c. 1700. 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. De 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. De 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. His 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. (Wikipedia) 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).

        Mémoire sur la Noblesse du Royaume de France.

      1700 ca Manuscrit in-4 de (2)-308 pp., vélin bruni, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure de l'époque). Mémoire manuscrit, anonyme et inédit rédigé à la fin du règne de Louis XIV tandis que depuis 1666 était menée dans tout le Royaume la grande enquête sur la noblesse de France mieux connue sous les termes de « recherche des usurpateurs du titre de noblesse » qui s'achèvera sous la Régence. (Incipit :) Il est certain que dans tous les Royaumes du Monde Républiques, ou pays policés et dans tous les tems, il y a eu une distinction réelle entre les hommes conçue de telle sorte par les uns et les autres qu'ils ont cru que le sang était le principe de cette distinction, il faut pourtant excepter de ce nombre le Royaume de la Chine où il y a quelques différents degrés d'étude et de science qui procurent cette distinction, lauelle ne passe point aux familles si ce n'est dans des cas fort particuliers. Rédigé à la première personne, l'auteur esquisse un nobiliaire de France (les grandes maisons sont répertoriées) et avance des réflexions historiques sur la filiation, les charges, l'identité nobiliaire au début du XVIIIe siècle. La référence au Père Calmet permet de circonscrire sa composition à la période 1694-1726, dates extrêmes des trois premières éditions de l'Histoire généalogique et chronologique de la maison Royale de France, des Pairs (p. 82) : Enfin de nos jours l'opinion est devenue telle que les maisons les plus illustres perdraient la meilleure partie de leur réputation si on ne les trouvait inscrites aux catalogues du Père Anselme qui a pris la liberté d'ériger en charges de la couronne tout autant d'emplois qu'il a pu afin de contenter tout le monde ; il ne voudrait cependant pas assurer que ce soit le meilleur moyen de conserver la véritable idée que l'on doit avoir de la noblesse. Manuscrit d'une belle écriture provenant de la bibliothèque du Maréchal Jourdan (1762-1833) avec son ex-libris armorié. Vainqueur à Fleurus en1794, nommé Maréchal de France en 1804, il fut éllevé au grade de Grand Aigle de la Légion d'honneur peu de temps après. Attaché au Roi Joseph, Jourdan devint gouverneur de Naples en 1806 avant de suivre le nouveau roi en Espagne.

      [Paris] 1700 - Beautifully handcoloured Original Engraving (copper engraving). [Paris], c.1700. 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. Ainsi 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). Sprache: French Excellent condition of this beautiful original 18th century map.

Elle fut réimprimée à plusieurs reprise avant cette édition très illustrée éditée une première fois à Amsterdam en 1681 chez la Veuve Schippers & Henry Wetstein, puis rééditée en 1700. Une partie des gravures se ressent de ce retirage, dont 'l'impression est parfois un peu pâle. Les graveurs n'ont pas laissé de signatures et seules quelques vignettes sont marquées du monogramme "A.S. 1662" ou "1663". (Brunet III, 572).

        The Historical Antiquities of Hertfordshire: with the original of counties, hundreds or wapentakes and hamlets; the foundation and origin of monasteries, churches, and vicarages; the several honors, mannors, and parks of the nobility and gentry; and the succession of the lords each. Faithfully collected from public records, ancient manuscripts and other select authorities...

      First edition, folio, [12], 601, [23]pp., including the very rare leaf "Directions for Placing the Cuts...", mounted engraved frontispiece portrait, title-page printed in red and black, folding engraved map and 44 engraved plates, most double-page or folding, text and plates a little age toned, a couple of plates with splash stains, marbled endpapers, full blue nineteenth-century morocco, blind and gold tooling on cover and spine, a little rubbed but still a nice copy."Sir Henry Chauncy, (1632-1719), lawyer and antiquary. Although he did not give up the legal profession at this time, Chauncy's landed inheritance gave him the opportunity and financial resources to compile his monumental work, The Historical Antiquities of Hertfordshire, finally published as a single large volume in 1700 in a print run of 500 copies and dedicated to its principal sponsor, the third earl of Bridgewater. Beginning with an account of the county's soil and rivers and its 'inhabitants and government', it then proceeds on a hundred by hundred basis, describing the origins of towns and villages, the descent of their manors, depicts various family coats of arms, and goes on to list the vicars, rectors, and monuments of the county's parish churches. Chauncy's work can be regarded as the first true history of the county, its text illustrated by forty-six engravings, the great majority of them bird's-eye perspective drawings of the seats of the noblemen and gentlemen who had subscribed to the publication."--(ODNB).

        Lettre autographe signée. S. l., [ca 1700].

      1700. 1p. 46.5:34cm (15 lignes). Exceptionelle rare lettre de Ninon de Lanclos, dont voici le texte: "Songes au capitaine que vous aves obligé tant de fois Monsieur je sais que pour faire du bien il ne faut point d'autre raison que celle de vos nobles inclination mais je ne pretans pas leur devoir tout quil y ait quelque chose pour lestime et lamitie que je conserve pour vous et pour celle que vous m'aves fait l'honneur de me prometre. Lanclos". - Cette lettre est à rapprocher de la lettre à Monsieur de Bonrepos dont le texte est quasiment identique (1p½ In-4, vendu aux enchères en 2002) mais présentée sur un papier de taille plus réduite et probablement aussi en caractères plus petits. Il est intéressant de noter que Monsieur de Bonrepos était un personnage assez important de la cour, qui fut même ambassadeur du Roi en Hollande. Notre lettre est forcément adressée à une personne plus importante encore, mais n'ayant aucune inscription de plus que le texte, il est impossible de savoir qui. Autographe de grande rareté.

        The Mariners Magazine. [...] Revised, corrected and enlarged by John Colson. London, Richard Mount, 1700.

      1700. Folio. (10), 148, 116, (48) pp. (pages 109, 100, 111, and 112 bound out of order). With plates, tables and 3 volvelles. 18th century panelled calf with the binding dated "1734" and with a newer, and heavily buttressed, spine added. A very good copy of this important, influential and rare-to-the-market nautical classic, being the fourth edition with "Useful Additions". - Samuel Sturmy states that he was apprenticed to a Bristol sailmaker and thereafter commanded ships sailing out of Bristol, primarily to Virginia and to the West Indies. His experiences formed the core of the work herein described, a work produced by him to provide his three brothers, his sons, and other young seamen with all of the information they would need - even if their own mathematical abilities were restricted to ordinary arithmetic. Sturmy wrote in a lively fashion, and in the sections pertaining to seamanship the usual commands and responses were set forth as a dialogue between the ship's captain and the crew, parts of which were used verbatim by Jonathan Swift in "Gulliver's Travels". It is from Sturmy's book that Dampier remembered the recipe ("receipt") for gunpowder. Sturmy's work also contains what may be one of the earliest complete explanations of the construction of a polar gnomonic chart, presenting a detailed example of a great circle route from the Lizard to the Bermudas. The Oxford Reference states: "The gnomonic chart became popular with the publication by Hugh Godfray in 1858 of two polar gnomonic charts covering the greater part of the world, one for the northern and the other for the southern hemisphere. Although it was generally believed that Godfray was the original inventor of this method of great circle sailing, it is interesting to note that a complete explanation of the construction of a polar gnomonic chart, with a detailed example of a great circle route from the Lizard to the Bermudas, appeared in Samuel Sturmey's 'Mariners' Mirror', of 1669." - A superior copy of a rare and highly notable book: an early classic of navigation, of which few copies in any edition have come to auction over the last several decades and which constitutes a critical component of any any nautical library.

        Universa Theologia ad mentem doctoris subtilis

      1700. "Acquaforte, 1700 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Splendida prova impressa su due fogli di carta vergata coeva, uniti, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Come indicato nel cartiglio in basso al centro, questa tesi teologica fu discussa nel 1700 a Roma, durante i Comizi Generali dell'ordine dei Frati Minori. Questa tesi riprende la concezione teologica di Giovanni Duns Scoto, che si meritò dai contemporanei l'appellativo di Doctos Subtilis, per la sua abilità argomentativa. Incisa da Jacob Hermundt e Francisco Person. Le pagine di tesi incise venivano stampate inizialmente come una sorta di "manifesto - locandina" per annunciarne il "dibattito" e, al tempo stesso, come invito stampato per ospiti speciali; in seguito, rappresentò una sorta di ""programma di sala"" stampato per i presenti, e infine come attestato per i relatori stessi e come opera di dedica per gli illustri mecenati. Già nel XVII secolo, tuttavia, le "tesi" incise erano diventati oggetti da collezione. Il contenuto filosofico o teologico della tesi, che spesso è completamente omesso nella copia di presentazione, è ridotto a un elenco di proposizioni che sono stampate nei cartigli ai margini laterali o inferiore del foglio. L'incisione mostra, al centro, un ritratto di Giuseppe I d'Asburgo, illustre mecenate dell'opera, imperatore del sacro Romano Impero e re d'Ungheria, e più in alto, suo padre Leopoldo I Su ogni lato laterale, sono tre cartigli con alcune proposizioni della tesi. Opera rarissima, sconoscuta ai repertori." Engraving, 1700, signed on the plate, in the lower right. Beautiful example, printed on two sheets printed on two sheets of contemporary laid paper, joined at the center. In excellent condition. Theological thesis page, engraved by Jacob Hermundt and Francisco Person. These served initially as a poster to announce the disputation and as a printed invitation for special guests, but later as the "program" for those in attendance, and finally as "trophies for the defendants and dedication pages for the patrons"; as early as the seventeenth century, however, they also became collector's items. The philosophical or theological content of the thesis, which could very well omitted completely in the presentation copy, was frequentely reduced to a list of propositions that were printed, in a box or at the bottom margin of the page, which sometimes was composed of several sheets of paper. These thesis page, shows at center a portrait of Joseph I of Augsburg, and in the top, his father Leopold I. On each lateral side, are the box or cartouches with some propositions of the thesis.
