ALLARD, Carel (1648-1709)
Amsterdam: Allard, c. 1703. Engraved with full period colour. Cartouche after Phillip Tideman (1657-1702). One repaired marginal tear, left margin, not affecting image. Glue residue in bottom left, top left and top right corners, all marginal. 19 5/8 x 23 1/8 inches. 21 x 25 inches. This masterful map of Asia represented a vast amount of recently gleaned geographical knowledge. The difference between the European conception of Asia in 1600 and that of 1700 is remarkable. As one would expect, the first improvements were coastal. The configurations of Japan, China, the East Indies and Indochina had vastly improved, and in some cases (China for example) accurate knowledge of the interior was being pieced together. In the case of China, this geographical understanding derived primarily from existing Chinese maps to which the Jesuits were given access. The most recent new Asiatic knowledge came from Nicolas Witsen, prominent politician, acquaintance of Peter the Great, and maker of a map of Siberia, incorporated here. Witsen is credited in the map. The topography of mountain ranges and forests and the lettering are beautifully engraved, and the whole continent is depicted with great clarity, as is characteristic of all Allard's maps. The cartouche, drawn by Philip Tideman and again, beautifully engraved, shows an Asian potentate before whom Asian artworks, products, exotic animals and flowers are displayed. Koeman, Atlantes Neelandici Al. 10

DE WIT, Frederick (1630-1706)
Amsterdam: De Wit, c. 1703. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. Mild soiling, otherwise, excellent. 21 x 24 1/2 inches. A very fine map of Sweden, Finland and the Baltic States, by one of the period's most prominent cartographers Frederick de Wit's finely engraved maps give the viewer the impression of great clarity and precision. The unperfected geography is more than compensated for by the near perfect rendering. This handsome map of the kingdom of Sweden depicts the country at the time of Charles XI (1660-97) and Charles XII (1697-1718). During this period, the Swedish monarchy was strong and territorially immense--much of the land depicted here was ruled by the Swedish king including Livonia, Finland and Gotland. By the end of Charles XII's reign, however, Sweden was no longer the strongest northern state and it began gradually to lose territory. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, De Wit 116.

Delisle, Guillaume (1675-1726)
Paris: Guillaume Delisle, 1703. A RARE FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE OF THE FIRST MAP TO ACCURATELY LOCATE THE MOUTH OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 201/2" x 271/4" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), plate 82; R. V. Tooley, The Mapping of America (London, 1985), 22. This groundbreaking map of Mexico and Florida was a paradigm for many later maps by European geographers throughout the eighteenth century. Drawn by Guillaume Delisle, the most important French cartographer to follow in the footsteps of Nicolas Sanson , it was the first printed map to delineate accurately the mouth of the Mississippi River with its delta, while also discarding the anecdotal and sometimes mythological information that characterized earlier maps in favor of data that came strictly from surveying and measurement. Delisle based his map on the most recent explorations, carefully compiling and assessing available information, and he was the first to incorporate a number of important geographical discoveries. The survivors of La Salle's ill-fated 1684 attempt to found a colony at the mouth of the Mississippi River - Henri Joutel, Jean Cavelier and others - had made further expeditions, while La Salle's lieutenant Henri de Tonti had made several trips down the Mississippi and visited the Choctaw Indians. Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville had explored the beginnings of the Red River, and Pierre-Charles Le Sueur, searching for mines in 1700, had gone up beyond the Illinois River into Sioux country. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Delisle, Guillaume (1675-1726)
Paris: Guillaume Delisle, 1703. THE BEST MAP OF THE GREAT LAKES, SHOWING THE DISCOVERIES OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY Copper-plate engraving with original hand outline color: 191/2" x 261/4" References: Conrad E. Heidenreich & Edward H. Dahl, "The French Mapping of North America in the Seventeenth Century," The Map Collector (June, 1982): 9-11; R. V. Tooley, The Mapping of America (London, 1985), 20. This is a foundational map in the history of the mapping of New France, the Great Lakes and the Upper Mississippi, and was closely copied by the best French and English mapmakers of the early eighteenth century. This particular example is an exceedingly rare first-edition, first-issue of Delisle's map, which was re-issued numerous times due to its superb quality and accuracy (this is the only issue of the map to include the address "Rue de Canettes" rather than "Rue de l'Horloge" in the dedication). The map is significant for two important reasons. It is the first printed map to show Detroit only two years after its founding by Cadillac and the rendering of the Great Lakes is remarkably accurate. Among the many other points of interest on the printed map is the improved course of the Ohio River. It was the most accurate map of New France to date and the first to correctly depict the latitude and longitude and grid, based on current astronomical innovations. Guillaume, who had also studied with the great French astronomer, Jean Cassini, was responsible for the scientific calculations of longitude and latitude. The "Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France" marked the culmi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pitt,Robert (1653-1713)
London: Tim. Childe 2nd edition, 1703. Hardcover. Good+. Octavo panelled sprinkled calf on 4 raised bands with red gilt spine title label (rebacked but one cover now detached/top compartment of spine damaged/edges slightly worn) Titlepage +[14]pp Dedication & Preface +203pp +[8]pp index. The 4 contents leaves that presumably belonged at the front are misbound after page 194. Coat of arms book plate of G.W.F. Gregor on pastedown. Index and a few leaves with pale marginal damp mark but all leaves, clean, crisp & supple. *The author complains that the price of drugs has increased rapidly and without cause during his tenure at St. Barts. That there is mis-prescription and fashion in drugs when there are perfectly good remedies available for much less money. This was also a territorial dispute between physicians and apothecaries who, during the late 17th and early 18th centuries had encroached on doctor's rights to prescribing and making up of their own medicines. Practices at this time included feeding gold to animals so that patients should "benefit" from eating their flesh, of grinding up pearl into powders etc. A scarce book in any edition with the Wellcome collection holding this but of the copyright libraries only the British Library and Oxford listing this title.
