[AUTOGRAPH]. DUHAMEL DU MONCEAU, Henri-Louis.
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.

Gole after Cornelis Dusart - Dutch ice skating scenes
1700. LA HOLLANDOISE SUR LES PATINS' en "LE HOLLANDOIS SUR LA GLACE"' Etsen met aquatint vervaardigd rond 1700 te Amsterdam door Jacob Gole (ca. 1660-1737) naar Cornelis Dusart (1660-1704). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) elk: 25,5 x 18 cm. Onder de prenten wordt uitgelegd, bij de vrouw: "On vas tu cher Gilot je sens rompre la glace,/ Si je m'enfoce au moins que je t'embrasse."' En bij de man: "Ca la pipe a la main, venez, chers camarades,/ Bravons le froid, et faisons cent gambades."' Bernardino de Mendoza, Spaans geschiedschrijver ten tijden van de Opstand vertelde met ontzag over de rapheid van de Hollandse schaatsers: Zij hebben platte, houten schoenen aan de voeten die met een over de wreef lopende riem vastzitten. Aan de zool van dit schoeisel zit een stuk metaal, zo dik als een pink, dat van voren in een krul oploopt zoals de Turkse pantoffels. Op dit schoeisel gaan zijn vlug over het ijs en bewegen daarbij hun voeten met een zekere regelmaat. Zij staan er zo vast op dat zelfs boerenvrouwen en meisjes er zich snel op voortbewegen met manden eieren of andere zaken op hun hoofd. Zij hebben een ongelofelijk vlugge vaart, vooral als de wind tegen hun achterste blaast, want er is geen paard dat hen kan bijhouden. Prijs: Euro 1.250,- /stuk (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling)

Madagascar - Pieter Mortier, c. 1700
1700. PIRATE HAVEN MADAGASCAR ?Carte Particuliere de l'Isle Dauphine ou Madagascar et St. Laurens?, copper engraving on two sheets published by Pieter Mortier in Amsterdam approx. 1700. With original hand coluring. Size: 56,2 x 85,1 cm. A large chart of Madagascar, including the islands of Isle De Bourbon ou de Mascaregne [Mauritius], Santa Apolonia [Réunion], Isle De Ioan de Lisboa [perhaps the island of Rodrigues] and Isles de Comorre [Comoro Islands]. In lower left hand corner an inset map of the bay of Saint Augustin on Madagascar. Madagascar itself shows a place called Masalagem Nova where the Portuguese from Mozambique trade their wines and fruits. The map was published in Pieter Mortier's monumental three-part sea-atlas, 'Le Neptune François'. The first part was a counterfeit of a French original; the second part, the 'Atlas Maritime' contained charts engraved by Romeijn de Hooghe, including the famous chart of the Mediterranean; the third, the 'Suite de Neptune François', contained charts from Portuguese sources. This chart comes from a full-colour example rather than the usual outline. Of particular interest are the delineations of Antongil Bay and Nosy Boraha [Île Sainte-Marie] in the north east: at the time both were havens for European pirates preying on the East India trade and Mughal treasure ships. The actions of William Kidd, Henry Every, John Bowen and Thomas Tew in the region helped make the period of this chart the golden age of piracy. Price: Euro 1.100,-

Europa - Pieter Schenk, ca. 1700
HET EUROPA VAN ROND 1700 ?Europa Excultissima?, kopergravure uitgegeven rond 1700 door Pieter Schenk te Amsterdam. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 50 x 58 cm. We zien het gebied van IJsland tot aan Noord Afrika en van de Atlantische Oceaan tot de Caucasus. In het titel cartouche dit maal een man en vrouw fraai gekleed, volgens de laatste mode van rond 1700, zich te goed aan zomers fruit. Daarboven een ruiter met tamboer en figuren met snaarinstrument, kwast en schilderspalet, jakobsstaf en andere voorwerpen die verwijzen naar kunst en wetenschappen. Het doet ons geloven dat het goed gaat met Europa. Pieter Schenk (1660-1711) verhuisde in 1684 vanuit Wuppertal naar Amsterdam en werd een leerling van Gerard Valck. In 1687 trouwde hij met Aefje Valck, de zuster van zijn leermeester. Zij richtten zich aanvankelijk op portretten en het graveren in mezzotint, bestemd voor de Engelse markt. Later werd de productie van kaarten belangrijker. Terwijl Valck zich op de productie van globes concentreerde, legde Schenk zich toe op het maken van landkaarten. In 1694 kochten hij en zijn zwager een deel van de drukplaten van Johannes Janssonius; Frederik de Wit kocht een ander deel. Prijs: Euro 750,-

World map - Romein de Hooghe, David Funcke, c. 1700
1700. "Novissima & exactissima totius orbis Terrarum Tabula" Hand coloured copper engraving from the "Atlas Maritimus Ofte Zee Atlas". Published in Nuremberg by David Funcke c. 1700. Size: 48 x 55 cm. David Funcke was a Nuremberg publisher, who commissioned works from Homann. This attractive and ingenious map however, derives from a work by Romeyn de Hooghe "one of the most accomplished Dutch artists of the second half of the 17th century" that appeared in Frederick de Wit's Atlas. The marginal decoration in this work depicting the four elements of Classical philosophy portrays Fire as a military battle; Air as the heavens ruled by the Zodiac and serenaded by Apollo; Earth as a field being harvested and husbandry; and Water, a sea with Dutch ships and a sputing whale. There are Greek gods presiding from the sidelines of all these scenes: Zeus, Hera, Hades, Persephone, Demeter and Poseidon. The map has two large hemispheres and two smaller, polar hemispheres. There is an outline of an Antarctic continent, which De Wit had left blank. Reference: Shirley 616 (and 444), plate 327. Price: Euro7.500,- (incl. frame)

On en a fait depuis une troisième édition à Paris, Jacques Boyer gendre de François Toubeau et le possesseur de son fond ayant négligé de le faire réimprimer." Préparée sous l'impulsion de Colbert, l'Ordonnance du commerce (1673), dite Code marchand, est une des cinq grandes ordonnances de codification de l'Ancien Régime. Toubeau la commente, y joint « l'usage et les sentences des juges et consuls pour en conserver la pratique ». Il fait ressortir la spécificité et l'importance du droit des marchands.
