Frattino Giulio Carlo dis. & Simone Durello inc
1703. Il titolo della carta è inserito in alto a destra in un decorativo festone sostenuto da un putto alato; vi si legge "STATO DI MILANO e Provincie Confinanti dalla Parte Orientale". A sinistra della carta si segnalano, entro un drappo sostenuto da un angioletto, delle curiose avvertenze al lettore: "Lettore / Se in questa Carta non / vedrai delineati tutti i / luoghi piccoli sappi che / l'intentione è stata di metterti per ora sotto gl'occhi i più principali, / con le strade, e Fiumi, / per darti poi a vedere / in altro più diffuso dis / segno minutamente cio, / che manca al presente, / e vivi felice". La carta fu sicuramente edita come foglio singolo; infatti, come si legge nella dedica al lettore, l'autore preannuncia l'uscita di una carta successiva più particolareggiata, di cui però non si hanno notizie. La carta del Frattino nacque in un momento particolare della storia del Ducato di Milano, in quanto contemporanea al passaggio tra il dominio spagnolo e quello austriaco avvenuto nel 1706. Fu considerata molto importante per la precisione con cui erano segnati i confini del Ducato di Milano verso il Piemonte, tanto che il governo austriaco nel 1739 ne sollecitò l'acquisto.Riferimenti: Davoli, Sanfelici, Zanasi Terre di Langobardia la Lombardia, il corso del Po' e il Ducato Estense nell'antica cartografia a stampa 1520 - 1796, pag. 108.

AA. VV.
Pierre Marteau, 1703. In 12mo (13,5 x 9 cm). (4) + 247pp (i.e. 245) + (7)pp. Full page woodcut frontispiece; head and tailpieces. Some browning and foxing. Bound in full contemporary vellum with inked title and fleur de lis on spine. Red edges. Early 18th century edition of the popular story of Tyl Ulenspiegel, also in small size and well produced. The present edition contains a preface to the new edition and 54 stories of Ulenspiegel's adventures. Here also an epitaph and the last will of Ulenspiegel in verse is added at the end. W. Willeford, in "The Fool and his Scepter", calls the present an "Elzevir edition", which could be true as the publisher's name Pierre Marteau was a pseudonym used by various publishers since 1663, often in combination with a fictitious address, mostly Cologne. The engraved frontispiece is identical with the one used in the edition by Chevalier. Graesse VII, 516-517.Brunet V, 1005. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Lahontan, Louis Armand, Baron de
Printed for H. Bonwicke [et al], London, 1703. Two volumes. [24],280; [2],302,[13]pp. plus twenty-four maps and plates (many folding). Lacks the advertisement leaf at the end of the second volume. Modern calf by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, ruled in gilt, spines gilt, a.e.g. Small neat repairs to the verso of several maps and plates. Very clean and neat internally. A handsome set. First edition in English of Lahontan's famous narrative, a curious blending of fact and fantasy, to be honored in regard to his account of his travels in the Great Lakes region, but to be accompanied by tongue placed amply in cheek in regard to his claims to have journeyed west of the Mississippi, which Howes states have the veracity of "the legends of the sea serpent." The maps and plates are quite interesting, though the former evidence some confused geography, most notably that of the "Long River" west of the Great Lakes. Despite Lahontan's lapses, this remains one of the most important midwestern travel narratives. The views of Indians and villages, as well as the maps, were engraved by H. Moll under the supervision of the author, and a new map of Newfoundland appears in this edition, as well as material relating to Lahontan's non-American travels. Rare with all twenty- four plates and maps. HOWES L25, "b." CLARK I:111. SABIN 38644. TPL 6357. STREETER SALE 107. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 2174. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 86, 87.

Lahontan, Louis Armand, Baron de
Chez les Freres l'Honore, The Hague, 1703. Two volumes. [24],279pp. plus frontispiece, two folding maps, eleven plates (two folding); 220,[17]pp. plus folding map and eleven plates (three folding). 12mo. Later 19th-century half calf and marbled boards, spines gilt. Extremities rubbed. Large folding map reinforced at folds. Some light toning and soiling. About very good. First edition, third issue with the titlepages all in black and the globe vignette, with the maps re-engraved and improved; cartographically the best edition. Lahontan's narrative is a curious blending of fact and fantasy. His account of his travels in the Great Lakes region is one of the most important travel narratives of the day, but his claims to have journeyed west of the Mississippi are highly doubtful. However, his assertions had great impact on geographers of the time, who adopted much of his imaginary geography. The most notable map in the book is the "Carte de la Riviere Longue," depicting an imaginary river extending westward from Lake Superior, a concept which confused generations of cartographers. The "Carte General de Canada" is also considerably confused geographically. Whatever his shortcomings as an explorer, Lahontan was one of the most perceptive observers of American Indian life at the time, and this work is a major source for the Huron and other tribes on the Great Lakes. It remains a classic voyage by a man "of more than ordinary learning and intelligence" (Sabin). HOWES L25, "b." CLARK I:111. PILLING, ALGONQUIAN 291. MICHIGAN RARITIES 6. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 86.

Guillaulme de L'ISLE (1675 - 1726)
1703. "La mappa di Guillaume De L'Isle è la prima a rappresentare con precisione il corso e la foce del fiume Mississippi. Questa ""Carte du Mexique..."" è stata realizzata grazie alle relazioni riportate in Francia dai sopravvissuti della spedizione La Salle in Nord America e alle informazioni derivate dalle esplorazioni di Bienville e d'Iberville. La mappa di De L'Isle rappresenta anche con maggiore precisione la regione dei Grandi Laghi e gli insediamenti inglesi lungo la costa orientale. Molto dettagliati dedicati anche alla presenza dei villaggi indiani nel Texas orientale, grazie ai rapporti di Iberville e dei missionari spagnoli. Una delle mappe più importanti e influenti della regione all'inizio del XVIII secolo." "Guillaume De L'Isle's landmark map, the first printed map to accurately depict the course and mouth of the Mississippi River. De L'Isle's Carte du Mexique . . . is drawn from the reports brought back to France from the survivor's of the La Salle expedition into the interior of North America and from information derived from the explorations of Bienville and d'Iberville. In the year preceding the publication of the map, De L'Isle utilized his position with the King of France to gain access to the best available information from the New World. De L'Isle's map also includes greater accuracy in the Great Lakes region and in its depiction of English settlements along the East Coast. Excellent detail of the Indian villages in East Texas, based upon the reports of Iberville and the Spanish missionaries.

LEIBNIZ, Gottfried Wilhelm
First edition. Ravier 472. Nouveaux essais sur l'entendement humain takes up almost all (520 pages) of this volume. Written in 1703-05 in reaction to John Locke's Essay concerning Humane Understanding, Leibniz delayed publication when he heard of Locke's death because he thought it unfair publicly to attack someone who could no longer defend himself. Immanuel Kant read the text closely four years after publication: 'the year '69 gave me great light' (Reflexionen 5037, 18:68). The title is something of a misnomer: the essais are couched in the form of a dialogue between Locke's spokesman Philalethes, who quotes from Coste's translation of the Essay, and Theophiles who replies for Leibniz. Modern commentators consider this text a high-water mark: Catherine Wilson calls it 'undoubtedly Leibniz's best composition: the richest, the most tightly argued, the most fertile ' ; and Peter Remnant and Jonathan Bennett say in the introduction to their Cambridge edition 'any attentive reader of the New Essays must receive a dominant impression of being in the presence of a powerful, restless, superbly sharp intelligence'. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 4to, half-title, [ii], xvi, [i], 540, [17] pp., contemporary half calf, a little rubbed and slightly stained, certain signatures with mild age-toning, otherwise just a few isolated spots, a fine copy.

Titles in red and black, woodcut frontispiece in part 1 showing a cockerel - repeated on verso of the last leaf, 1 folding table, diagrams and numerous tables in the text. Modern half calf, titled in blind over marbled boards. 8vo. Binding: 167 x 107 mm. Small repair to 1 leaf in part 2, with loss of page number and 1 letter only. However, a good copy overall. This is the first complete edition of this curious book - part 1 only was first published in 1695. The title states that the name of the author is contained in the A B C, and most probably it is there in all the anagrams and puzzles in the book, but his name has not been discovered. A rare work on the significance of the letters of the alphabet - mystical, musical, historical and alchemical. The book is full of puzzles, anagrams, ciphers, codes etc., and it has been the subject of scholarly study particularly relating to Bach's music and whether he was influenced by this book.

Antique print, titled: 'Carte de L'Empire de Japon ( ).' - Map of the Empire of Japan. Centered on the Bay of Osaka, this map covers from Hirado (here identified as I. Firando) and Nagasaki to Akita (Aquita), to include most of Tokugawa (Edo) Era Japan. The island of Hokkaido is not included in this map. Various towns, harbors, bays, provinces, mountains and daimyo are noted, although many are speculative. Engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Jacques-Nicolas Bellin' after an anonymous artist. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703 - 1772) was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century.

His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. A true child of the Enlightenment Era, Bellin's work focuses on function and accuracy tending in the process to be less decorative than the earlier 17th and 18th century cartographic work. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Bellin was always careful to cite his references and his scholarly corpus consists of over 1400 articles on geography prepared for Diderot's Encyclopedie. Bellin, despite his extraordinary success, may not have enjoyed his work, which is described as "long, unpleasant, and h … [Click Below for Full Description]
