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

MYSTERIEUZE TULPENSCHILDERTulpenaquarellen van de hand van 'De Tulpenschilder'. Begin 18de eeuw. Afm. (papiergrootte): ca. 25 x 10 cm.Omdat de bloeitijd van tulpen in het voorjaar slechts enkele weken bedroeg, lieten tulpenbollen-handelaren vanaf eind 16e eeuw van de te verkopen bollen tekeningen maken, om de verkoop te stimuleren.Het papier van deze aquarellen is gedateerd rond 1700. Er zijn maar weinig tulpenschilders in het begin van de 18e eeuw. Toch blijft er blijft twijfel over wie 'De Tulpenschilder' is. Er is een gerede kans dat de tulpen gemaakt zijn door Maria Sybilla Merian (1647 - 1717).Merian kwam terug uit Suriname en moest in haar levensonderhoud voorzien. Dat zou ze gedaan kunnen hebben door het schilderen van tulpen zoals deze. Ze waren bedoeld voor een kunstboek, een soort catalogus waarin een veelheid van bestaande tulpensoorten waren bijeengebonden.Bij het schilderen is ze waarschijnlijk geassisteerd door leerlingen (zoals dat vaker gebeurde), misschien haar dochters. De bloembladeren zijn geschilderd door de meester, de bladeren aan de stengel zijn van een iets mindere hand.De tekeningen worden door Dr. Sam Segal toegeschreven aan Anthony Claesz (1592 - ca. 1635).Literatuur: Willemse, "Het Mysterie van de Tulpenschilder" (2004)Prijs: € 2.950,- (per stuk, incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

Cambodia - Fer, Nicholas de / [Nicolas de Fer]. (1646 - 1720)

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 fortifie … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALK, Gerard and SCHENK, Petrus
Amsterdam: Gerard Valk & Petrus Schenk, 1700. Engraving with lovely early colour, excellent impression. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition, with the exception of a printers crease in bottom left section of map. A stunning map showing the southern provinces of China, covering Hainan and the Pearl River Delta with Macao and the islands around present-day Hong Kong. Following the decline of the Blaeu and Jansson publishing houses, Schenk and Valk became the leading mapmakers in Amsterdam. Towards the end of the seventeenth century Schenk acquired Jansson's lucrative business and proceeded to republish some of his most successful atlases. In addition to atlases, Schenk and Valk published books, prints and globes specializing in plates from the publishing houses of Jansson, Visscher and Sanson. This beautiful map shows the southwest provinces of China, including Hainan and the Pearl River Estuary. The provinces of Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi, and Guangdong are depicted and the principal towns are marked by a dark red dot. Originally published by Jansson, Schenk and Valk issued this impression in the early eighteenth century. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici Vol. III, p. 109-121, no. 425; Tooley, Maps and Map-Makers 34.

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.

MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711)
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 .

Lanclos, Ninon de, célèbre courtisane, femme de lettre (1620-1705).
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.

MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711)
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.

MORTIER, Pierre (1661-1711)
Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1700. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour and gold embellishments, in excellent condition. A highly decorative sea chart of the coast of Morocco, with exceptional original colour and highlights in gold This large scale, beautifully coloured chart, which shows the northwest coast of Africa from Cape Spartel to a point in the Sahara adjacent to the Canary Islands, comes from the third part of Mortier's edition of Le Neptune François , or Suite du Neptune François , a lavish collection of charts derived from manuscripts in the Royal Portuguese archives. The Portuguese had of course been the first Europeans to explore the coasts of Africa. The coast from Gibraltar to the Canaries was well known during the Middle Ages, and had been known to the Romans. This chart is the most accurate and detailed of the African charts in the work, including as it does soundings and notes: historical and advisory. The place-names have changed radically of course. Pierre Mortier's grandparents were French émigrés, who left France in about 1625 to live in Leiden. His parents settled in Amsterdam in 1661 or 1662. Mortier grew up in Amsterdam but lived in Paris from 1681 to about 1685 where he must have gotten into the book trade. Once he was in Amsterdam again he specialized in French books and maintained his relationships with Parisian publishers.

A superb coastal chart of western Africa, with exquisite original colour and gold highlights This large scale, beautifully coloured chart, which shows the west coast of Africa from the southern border of Morocco to the southern border of Gabon, comes from the third part of Mortier's edition of Le Neptune François , or Suite du Neptune François, a lavish collection of charts derived from manuscripts in the Royal Portuguese archives. The Portuguese had of course been the first Europeans to explore the coasts of Africa.

Bray, Thomas
[N.p., 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Matthäus SEUTTER (1678-1757) Augsburg ca 1750. Copper engraving with original colour, image size: 49,5 x 57,5 cm.
- 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 hi … [Click Below for Full Description]
