      [Paris]. 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). . [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. 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)

        [Autograph letter, signed, to Gabriel de Choiseul, Duc de Praslin].[Paris], 21 June [1762]. 4to. In French, in brown ink on laid paper. With: [PORTRAIT]. [DROUAIS, François-Hubert]. [Henri Louis Duhamel du Monceau].[Paris, ca. 1760?]. Folio. Engraved portrait of Duhamel on laid paper.

      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.

        [Istanbul] Constantinopolis

      Amsterdam, 1700. Copper engraving, printed on laid paper, in excellent condition. A stunning panoramic view of Constantinople, by the celebrated Dutch cartographer Frederick de Wit. Flourishing around 1650, Frederick de Wit was one of the most successful map engravers in Amsterdam. Following the decline of the Blaeu and Jansson publishing houses, de Wit cornered the cartographic publishing market by acquiring a vast array of used copper plates. His prolific business encompassed almost every aspect of map making from sea charts and atlases to town books and town plans; he even produced large wall maps. His work, which is finely engraved and superbly executed, was extremely popular and continued to be published even after his death. This impressive engraving is a striking town view of Constantinople in Turkey, and would have been originally published as part of a larger work.

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

"Rare 7.75"" x 6.5"" neck collar with a 2"" x 1.5"" central area upon which the slave buyer could identify his purchases from the Tribal Chiefs who would transport his purchases from the interior of Africa to the buyer's ship docked on the coast.

From the letter of authenticity, in part, ""This is an early collar in which the construction is consistent with the period and the unnamed Dealer had direct dealings with the Tribal Chiefs in order to remove large quantities of Africans from their homeland...""This type of slave collar did not have any locking mechanism. While on the West Coast of Africa, this type of slave collar was heated in a fire to open the device, then the item was fitted around the en-slaved African's neck. These Africans wearing this type of Slave collar would have been sold among one of the Caribbean Countries in which England dominated the Save trade at that time.

        Para la Historia del Consejo

      1700 - Splendid manuscript catalogue on the Council of the Indies, with information on the documents held by the supreme body governing the Americas in the 16th and 17th centuries. N.d. [ca. 1700]. N.p. [Madrid or Seville]. In folio (325 mm x 230 mm). 3 [blank] + 798 [808] ff. + 2 [blank]. Contemporary boards, painted in green, two small paper labels “95” and “284” on spine, evidently inventory numbers; there is some light rubbing, although exceptionally well preserved for a manuscript of this size. Preserved in a fine red morocco box, and cloth slip-case, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (London), spine with false raised bands forming compartments and lettered in gilt. Manuscript on paper in a neat and clear hand, of probably two scribes; absolutely immaculate condition, foliated 1-549, and 560-808, final leaf with folio number but otherwise blank, ff. 550-559 skipped in foliation. A fascinating manuscript catalogue of the documents relating to the Council of the Indies, as well as Spanish discoveries and exploration in the Americas and the Philipines, from 1492 until the mid seventeenth century. All manner of information is found here, from the appointments of officials to the sailings of fleets, and the people named are often readily familiar, such as Columbus, Vespucci, Balboa, Cortes, Pizarro, Las Casas, Sepulveda, Pedro de Medina,Oviedo, Lopez de Gomara, Alvaro de Mendaña, Garcia de Nodal, and others. The Council of the Indies (Real y Supremo Consejo de Indias) was the supreme body governing Spanish America. It had prime responsibility for government, defense, trade, and the administration of justice, its duties affected all aspects of life in the Indies, and its remit extended across the Pacific to the Philippines. It was formally established in 1523/4, however its origins go back to arrangements made by the Council of Castile in 1492 to advise the Crown on matters arising from the new discoveries of Columbus, which is why documents from these early years are itemized in this catalogue. Its attributions and faculties comprised the planning of proposals relative to the New World (relation with the natives, commerce, etc.), and propose them to the King; the administrative organization of the Indies –including the creation of Viceroyalties; proposing possibilities for high-ranking appointments of officials to the King; receiving and filing the correspondence coming from the Indies; authorize the books going to the Americas; the drafting and application of the law (from 1614), and examining the legislation originated in the Indies, amongst others. The present manuscript is apparently unrecorded. The hands and paper suggest that it was produced in the 18th century; hitherto the text has been known only from another manuscript preserved in the Real Academia de la Historia (RAH), Madrid. Neither manuscript has a full title, both beginning simply “Para la historia del Consejo”, nor neither gives any indication of authorship or date of original composition. The RAH manuscript has been edited by Angel de Altolaguirre y Duvale and Adolfo Bonilla y San Martin, published as “Indice general de los papeles del Consejo de Indias” (Madrid, 1923-26, Coleccion de documentos ineditos de Ultramar, second series, 14-19; Palau 119071); it has also been examined by Guillermo Lohmann Villena “El indice general de los papeles del Consejo de Indias” (Revista de Historia de America, nº 51, 1961, pp. 137-62). Parts of the hand in the RAH copy have been identified as that of government officer –and compiler of the Recopilacion de las Leyes de Indias- Antonio de Leon Pinelo (1589 – 1660). The latest dated document referred to, is 1638, so the calendar was probably compiled in the 1640´s or 1650´s- by that time the Council of the Indies had issued a multitude of laws and regulations preserved in a huge number of records; it was evident that this disparate material needed to be consolidated on a systematic basis, it was Leon Pinelo who undertoo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1700. Copper engraved map, engraved by Romein de Hooghe, on two sheets joined, period hand-colouring in outline. Inset plan of Boston Harbor. Mortier's map of English (and French) colonial America from his famed Neptune François. Although the title suggests this map of English North America to be based on Sanson, it is in fact "drawn directly from Robert Morden's significant New Map of the English Empire in America, c. 1698. The most notable feature here is the mountain range extending from the Florida peninsula northwards into Michigan ... Despite many of the toponyms being translated into French, the map's English origins are clearly seen, including Copper Mine near present day Chicago, and Mines of Iron besides the Ohio River, both originating in the Thevenot, 1681. The unusual depiction of Green Bay, the broader northern portion of the Delaware peninsula, the boundaries of Pennsylvania extending far to the north, the altered Cape Cod and the inset plan of Boston harbour are all features found on the Morden map. Indeed, this is the first printing of a plan of an English colonial city in a non-English map" (Burden). The general title and imprint appears in the upper left corner of this two sheet map; however, a second title (Partie Orientale de l'Amerique Angloise) and imprint appears in the upper right corner, allowing Mortier to use the same map joined, as here, in his Neptune François , or as separate sheets in his Atlas Nouveau .

        Lettre autographe signée.

      S. l., [ca 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.

        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. 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).

        A LETTER FROM DR. BRAY, TO SUCH AS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TOWARDS THE PROPAGATING CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE IN THE PLANTATIONS [caption title].

      [Np, but probably London. ]. 1700 - 3pp. printed on a folded sheet. Folio. Some soiling on final blank page. Overall a very good copy, untrimmed. In a large folding paper board case. A rare printed circular letter written by Bray immediately upon his return from Maryland. Founder of the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, Bray was engaged in the important work of establishing parochial libraries in the colonies. In 1695 he was appointed by the governor of Maryland to assist in dividing the province into parishes. While waiting for a new act to be passed, he spent time looking for missionaries to be sent to the province. He found that he could enlist only poor men unable to buy books, and he seems to have made the provision of parochial libraries a condition of his going to Maryland. He was responsible for establishing no less than thirty-nine libraries in North America, the first being that at Annapolis. It was felt that he could do greatest service to the church in Maryland if he returned to England to have the law, which had run into several difficulties, enacted. The opening words of the present letter reflect a sense of urgency: "Being apprehensive that my so sudden Return for England, may occasion some misconstructions.I thought my self in duty.bound, to represent hereby a General View of those Reasons, which have induced me to make it so soon, and unexpectedly." He then gives seven reasons for his return from Maryland: "It is the joint request of the Clergy of MARY-LAND, who.urged me.that I should go over with the Law for England; not that the Quakers are openly, and the Papists more covertly, making efforts against the Establishment of our Church by false representations.That to impose upon them an Establish'd Maintenance for the Clergy, would be prejudicial to the interest of the Province, by obliging so many wealthy Traders to remove from thence. The Falsity of which they thought me best able to make appear, by means of my late Parochial Visitations, throughout the greatest part of the Province.by which.I shall be enabled to give an Account of the Names of all Heads of Families, and of the Religion and Morals of every individual Man, Woman and child, Freeman and Slave, White and Black, throughout MARY-LAND." Bray speaks of the church in America as being but in its "infancy," but goes on to mention the state of religion in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and the East and West Jerseys; and the success of parochial libraries in Pennsylvania, New York, New England, Carolina, Bermuda, and the Leeward Islands. He concludes with a summary of advances and achievements up to the time of the letter, particularly the advances made in educating the black population. This letter is sometimes mistakenly considered an issue from Bradford's New York press (see Evans), but the statements herein make it more probable that it was printed in England after Bray's return in 1700. A rare and important work. SABIN 7478. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 700/28. WING 4293A. EVANS 903. BAER, SEVENTEENTH CENTURY MARYLAND 197.

        NEVA RIVER, Russia: Fluvius Newae lacu Petropolin. versus procurrens recens delineatus jam vero ad exemplar Petropolitannum aeri incisus a Matthaeus Seutter Sac. Caes. Maj. Geogr. Aug. Vind.

      - Detailed originally coloured map with titles and names in Latin and Cyrillic shows Leningrad Oblast and the Neva River in Russia between ht area east of St. Petersburg to Shlisselburg on the coast of the Ladoga Lake. Neva is a river in northwestern Russia flowing from Lake Ladoga through St. Petersburg to the Neva Bay of the Gulf of Finland. In the Great Northern War of 1700–21 Leningrad Oblast and Neva became a part of the Russian Empire. After Peter the Great founded Saint Petersburg amidst the land in 1703, which soon became the capital of the Russian Empire, Leningrad Oblast became a growing market for its agricultural production as well as the main consumer of its mineral and forest resources and Neva became an important water route, connecting St. Petersburg with the Ladoga Lake. The map shows the ideal construction of the Ladoga Canal with a plan on the upper left part. The German Author Matthäus Seuter based his map upon a Russian map, made by Joseph Nicolas de L'Isle in 1735, published in (Atlas Russicus) Russischer Atlas: Welcher in einer General-Charte und neunzehen Special-Charten das gesamte Russische Reich und dessen angraentzende Laender, nach den Regeln der Erd-Beschreibung und den ne Academie der Wissenschafften (St. Petersburg 1745). This Russian Atlas, published by , was based on work by Iwan Kirillowitsch Kirilow (1689-1737). Kirilow published his maps in unfinished atlas Atlas vserossijskoj imperii (????? ????????????? ???????) in 1734. Matthäus Seutter (1678-1757) was one of the most prominent German publishers of the 18th century. He started his apprenticeship under the most famous engraver of the time Johann-Baptist Homann.In 1732 he received a title of Imperial Geographer by German Emperor Charles VI. After Matthäus’ death his son took over the firm for mere five years, until his death in 1762. After that the firm was divided between the printing firm Probst and Seutter’s son-in-law Tobias Conrad Lotter. References: L. Bagrov: Ivan Kirilov, compiler of the first Russian atlas, 1689 1737.

Gay-Lemonnyer II, 62. - Sehr seltene Ausgabe des berühmtem Erotikons, dessen komplette erste Auflage (1655) auf dem Scheiterhaufen verbrannt worden war. Als Autor wird häufig Michel Millot genannt, der aber wohl, zusammen mit Jean L'Ange, nur Herausgeber und Auftraggeber des Erstdrucks war. Späteren Nachdrucken war häufig ein "Madrigal" zu Ehren des Autors vorangesetzt, das Millots Namen in "Mililot" oder, wie hier, "Mililorme" verballhornte. Dem titelgebenden Dialog zweier junger Frauen über sexuelle Themen sind ca. 30 weitere "galante" Texte von Pierre-Corneille Blessebois, Roger de Rabutin Bussy, Pietro Aretino sowie verschiedenen anonymen Autoren angefügt. Bis in die Abfolge hinein sind sie mit dem Inhalt eines unter dem Titel "Le cabinet d'amour et de Venus" und dem fingierten Druckort "Cologne, chez les Héritiers de Pierre Marteau" erschienenen Werks identisch. Die auf dem Titelblatt genannten "trente sept Belles Figure (sic) Gravées en Taille Douce" existieren nach Gay-Lemonnyer nicht. Sowohl Gay-Lemonnyer als auch Brunet (Imprimeurs imaginaires, S. 19) zitieren die vorliegende Ausgabe lediglich nach einem bei der Versteigerung der Sammlung Jules Auvillain (Paris 1865) angebotenen Exemplar. Weitere Nachweise für die Existenz des Drucks kannten sie nicht ("une édition ., qui n'avait pas encore cité" - Brunet). Das einzige für uns nachweisbare titelgleiche Exemplar in der Bibliothek der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in München weicht in der Kollation deutlich ab. - Papier gering gebräunt.

      Frankfort & Leipzig, 1700. 12mo. Modern brown crushed morocco. Very good. Scarce first edition of an important early source on the history of Pennsylvania, written by the founder of Germantown. Pastorius, born in Germany in 1651, formed an acquaintance with William Penn, became a Quaker, and helped organize the Frankfort Land Company. Securing 15,000 acres of land in Pennsylvania, he emigrated in 1683 and soon thereafter laid out Germantown, of which he was the principal founder. This epistolary work includes letters written from Pennsylvania to his father describing the region, including its form of government and providing advice to emigrants. In the rear of the work is a printing in German of William Penn's LETTER TO THE COMMITTEE OF THE FREE SOCIETY OF TRADERS. Pastorius, Winsor writes, was "the most active and intelligent of the first German settlers" and his work "is of great interest, as it contains the views of one thoroughly identified with the German movement to America" (Winsor). This work stands at the beginning of the "Pennsylvania Dutch" culture of Pennsylvania, still a vibrant culture today.

Rückentitel. grüner Farbschnitt. Frontispiz knapp beschnitten, Vorsatzbll. fleckig, Papier durchgehend etwas gebräunt und leicht fleckig. Pergament stark nachgedunkelt. Siehe: Dictionary of National Biography, Volume 39, S. 73f.: MORLEY, CHRISTOPHER LOVE (fl. 1700), physician, was born in or about 1646, and from his name may probably have been related to Christopher Love [q. v.] the presbyterian. He was entered as a medical student at Leyden 18 Feb. 1676 (English Students at Leyden, Index Society, 1883), being then thirty years of age (Munk), and graduated M.D. in 1679. According to a short account of Morley in the preface to his \'Collectanea Chymica,\' he had travelled widely, and apparently practised medicine before coming to Holland. At Leyden he attended the medical practice of Schacht and Drelincourt, with the anatomical lectures of the latter, and also studied chemistry with Maëts and others. Morley was accustomed to take copious notes of lectures, cases, &c., which ultimately extended, it is said, to more than forty quarto volumes. Of these a few have survived, and are now in the British Museum (Sloane MSS., Nos. 1259, 1272, 1273, 1289). They are dated 1677 to 1679, and not only show Morley\'s diligence as a student, but give an interesting picture of the state of medical education in Leyden at the time. On his return to England he published a little volume on an epidemic fever then prevalent in England, Holland, and else where, which he dedicated to the College of Physicians (\'De Morbo Epidemico,\' 1678-9, &c., London, 1680, 12mo). It contains an account of his personal experience of the disease, and a letter from Professor Schacht of Leyden on the same subject, besides remarks on the state of medical practice in England and Holland. This probably led to his election as an honorary fellow of the College of Physicians 30 Sept. 1680 (since, not being an English graduate, he was not eligible to become an ordinary fellow). He did not immediately settle down, for in 1683 we find him going on a voyage to the Indies, but in 1684 he was practising in London.In the new charter granted to the college in 1686 by James II Morley was named as an actual fellow, and was admitted in the following year. This fact shows that he was a partisan of James II, and probably a Roman catholic, so that he found a difficulty in taking the oaths required by the government after the revolution, and finally, in 1700, his name was on that ground withdrawn, at his own request, from the college list. His subsequent career cannot be traced.Morley was evidently a man of remarkably wide knowledge in medicine and other sciences, but he did nothing in later life to justify his early promise. Beside the work mentioned above he published \'Collectanea Chemica Leydensia\' (Leyden, 1684, 4to), which is evidently extracted from the notebooks above referred to. It consists of a large number of chemical and pharmaceutical receipts taken from the lectures of three professors of chemistry at Leyden Mae\'ts, Marggraff, and Le Mort. It was translated into German (Jena, 1696), and appeared in a second Latin edition (Antwerp, 1702, 12mo). **** Theodorus Muyckens [Übersetzer] (1665–1721) Versandkostenfreie Lieferung Chemie Allchemie Heilmittel Rezepte

        Vintage Map of Iran / Persia: "Perse" [showing the whole of Iran from the Caspian Sea to the Gulf of Basra (Golfe de Balsora) / Persian Gulf].

      [Paris], 1700 - Original copper engraved maps. [Paris], c. 1700. 15.5 cm wide x 13 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).

        THE AMERICAS – DOUBLE / JOINED MAP: [NORTH AMERICA:] AMERICA SEPTENTRIONALIS CONCINNATA JUXTA OBSERVATIONES DRIN ACADEMIAE REGALIS SCIENTIARUM ET NONNOLLORUM ALIORUM, ET JUXTA ANNOTATIONES RECENTISSIMAS, PER G. DE L'ISLES, GEOGRAPHUM [WITH:] [SOUTH AMERI.

      - This composition has great wall power, for it features Tobias Conrad Lotter’s carefully joined pair of maps of North America and South America, forming a map 3 feet high and 2 feet wide! While the attractive and engaging maps are occasionally available individually, this is the only example we have seen of the pair being contemporarily joined to form one mega-map. That being said, during the 18th Century it was not that unusual for maps that made a perfect pair to be joined. Lotters’s present maps are based on the French Royal Geographer Guillaume De L’Isle’s famous maps L'Amerique Septentrionale and L'Amerique Meridionale, both first issued in Paris in 1700. De L’Isle’s maps were amongst the most admired and influential general maps of the American continents through most of the 18th Century, due to their progressive geography and clear presentation. Focusing on the upper map, of North America, we find a fine depiction of the Mississippi Basin and the American Southwest, although while California seems to be a peninsula, the blank space at the head of the Sea of Cortes leaves just a hint of ambiguity. In the northeast, all five of the Great Lakes are depicted in a form approximately familiar to the modern viewers, predicated on Jesuit mapping, while Hudson’s Bay is well expressed, predicated on HBC reconnaissance. Atlantic Canada’s form is not as refined as it would be after surveys done later in the century. Turing to the map in the lower half of the composition, that of South America, all of the major details are present, although the continent assumes the exaggeratedly bulbous form, with its Patagonian tail sweeping too far the southwest, as it tended to have on maps of the period. Both the Amazon and Río de la Plata-Paraguay Basins are depicted with considerable detail, although not based on scientific surveys. The Andean region and the coastal areas are shown to be relatively well understood, home to numerous Iberian settlements and Jesuit missions. Interestingly, the Pacific Ocean, in both halves of the composition, features the tracks of famous named explorers, including those of Ferdinand Magellan’s Circumnavigation (1520); Álvaro de Mendaña’s voyage to the Marquesas, incorrectly labeled here as the Solomon Islands (1595); Olivier van Noort’s Circumnavigation (1600); and Sir Francis Drake’s piratical expedition up the Pacific coast (1577), including his visit to Northern California. The present maps were issued by Tobias Conrad Lotter (1717 – 1777), who by the time that this map was issued had become the most prolific and influential cartographic publisher in Germany, with a leading role in the Pan-European map trade. He previously worked for the prominent Augsburg map publisher Matthäus Seutter (1678 – 1757), married his daughter, and became the primary heir of Seutter’s burgeoning business. Lotter’s maps are admired for their vibrant German Baroque style and colouring. References: Re: North America map: Sellers & Van Ee, North America & West Indies, no. 126.

        CARTE GENERAL DE LA CAROLINE. DRESSE SUR LES MEMOIRES LE PLUS NOUVEAUX PAR LE SIEUA [sic] S***

      Amsterdam, 1700. Very good. 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 map 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 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).
