Johannes BLAEU (Alkmaar 1571 - Amsterdam 1663)
1700. Opera per la prima volta pubblicata nel "Theatrum Civitatum et admirandorum Italiae", pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1663. Johannes Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristmapti da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie". L'opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall'aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell'opera. L'atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all'inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell'opera diede origine ad un'ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Le opere tratte dalla prima edizione del Blaeu, 1663, sono caratterizzate dalla presenza del testo al verso e sono piuttorsto rare. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione.

Paolo PETRINI (Attivo a Napoli fine del XVIII secolo)
1700. Carta geografica del continente derivante da quella di Nicolas Sanson, edita a Parigi alla metà del XVII secolo. Editore, incisore e libraio, Paolo Petrini è attivo a Napoli tra il 1692 ed il 1748, realizzando numerose opere grafiche e topografiche, molto spesso derivandole da quelle di Sanson e Nicolas de Fer. La sua produzione è molto vasta e comprende centinaia di carte, molte delle quali ispirate al Mercurio Geografico della tipografia De Rossi di Roma. Tutta la sua opera è estremamente rara. E' molto probabile che il Petrini, piccolo editore locale con rari scambi all'estero, si ispiri alla carta dell'Asia del De Rossi che deriva dall'originale del Sanson. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva con ritocchi, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 550x405. Paolo Petrini, publisher, engraver and book trader, worked in Naples between 1692 and 1748, realizing cartographic and topographic works, very often after Sanson's and Nicolas de Fer's prints. His huge production includes hundreds of maps, especially those inspired to the Mercurio Geografico, and is extremely rare. As a matter of fact, this map derives probably from the one realized by De Rossi, who I his turn took inspiration from Sanson. Copper engraving, contemporary colour with touches, in excellent condition.

Paolo PETRINI (Attivo a Napoli fine del XVIII secolo)
1700. "Rara carta geografica della penisola, tratta dal Atlante Partenopeo dell'editore e libraio napoletano Paolo Petrini. L'atlante è una complessa operazione editoriale messa in atto da Petrini per raccogliere molte della carte da lui realizzate a partire dall'ultimo decennio del XVII secolo, tratte sostanzialmente da Guillaulme Sanson, Nicolas De Fer e Giacomo Cantelli, e pubblicate con aggiornamenti anocra per gran parte del'700 dal figlio Nicola. L'atlante del Petrini rappresentava per il Regno di Napoli, l'equivalente del Mercurio Geografico stampato a Roma dalla tipografia De Rossi, e circolante principalmente nello Stato Pontificio. Borri la descrive così: ""La carta, senza reticolato, con margini graduati, ha la stessa conformazione generale della carta di Nicola Sanson del 1665, di cui è una riedizione. Si caratterizza per i tratti marcati ed irrobustiti dell'apparato orografico e dirico che l'abilità dle Petrini ha saputo conferire. E' probabilmente la prima carta generale italiana stampata nella città partenopea. Piuttosto rara, come tutte le carte di questo stampatore. Sono in circolazione esemplari identici, datati 1700 ma senza firma del Petrini, né riferimenti al luogo di stampa.""" Little is known of Paolo Petrini, the Neapolitan mapmaker. He is known to have published the rare Atlante partenopeo (1700-1718), and this equally rare set of wall-maps. Much of his work appears to have been based on contemporary French mapping, notably the works of the Sanson family and Nicolas de Fer. That he was not merely a copyist, however, may be seen from his map of Asia, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bearing the seal of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cambrai in the upper right corner. In very good condition. At the height of the Dutch Golden age in 1654, Dutch cartographer and artist Frederik de Wit opened a printing office which soon became internationally renowned under the name "Witte Pascaert" (the White Chart). The first cartographic images de Wit published were city views and maps and he soon went on to publish full large-format folio atlases. Most special collections libraries, rare map libraries, and private collections hold copies of De Wit's atlases and maps including The Osher Map Library, Harvard Map Collection, Yale University Beinecke Library, and The Library of Congress.

(Unsure about title, author, publisher because most of the title page is torn away (see photo)!)
1700. Condition: (Unsure about title, author, publisher because most of the title page is torn away (see photo)!) The outside is a little rough; there is a small sized insect like hole near the center of the front board; the hinge has a slight crack, but board is still intact; there are a few areas of scuffing to the boards. The first front free endpaper is missing. Most of the title page is missing. The Epistle Dedication has the date of 1700 at the bottom, and we are assuming this is near the date of publication.

The title page for the first part is dated 1700, the title page for the second part and the Hawkins dedication are dated 1760, so it seems to be the 1760 edition. the book is clean, tight, square and unmarked with contemporary spine covering of tan calf with five raised bands and bright gilt titles. The boards appear to be the original in brown leather and brass clasps at the fore edge. They have been rubbed to rounding at the corners. The front paste down has the name of John Bell Thirsk. The first part has 302 clear pages with occasional toning and some minor damp stain in the upper corner spine for a dozen or so page near the end. The second part has 128 pages plus an index. The frontispiece of part 2 is a plate of Cotton. Both parts are illustrated with black & white plates. The spine covering has been replaced making this a very handsome book. As this book is from the library of American Impressionist J. Alden Weir, the father of Caroline Weir (Caro Weir Ely), artist, print maker, book binder, there is a chance it was she who did this work.
