Abraham à Sancta Clara [i. e. Ulrich Megerle].
Nuremberg, no publisher, (1703). Folio (266 x 367 mm). (4) pp. With 98 (instead of 100) engraved plates (one of which in original hand colour). Later full vellum, bound to style, with handwritten spine title. First edition; rare. - While "only the dedication [.] was written by Abraham" (Dünnhaupt), this famous work represents a wide spectrum of traditional costumes "beginning with the portraits of the Pope and the imperial family" (Dünnhaupt), showing "the highest officials, and cuts of all sorts of people seen in Vienna. The cuts, prepared by Caspar Luyken for the Weigel firm, represent a veritable compendium of Viennese culture about the year 1700" (Faber du Faur). The background of the portrait of Emperor Leopold I was coloured. In addition, the illustrations exhibit traditional costumes of people from all over the world, including the Doge of Venice, Sultan Mustafa II and a number of Turkish types, a Spanish officer, East and West Indian Kings, Russians, American Indians and Ethiopians. The plates "carry the inscriptions 'Cas. Luyken fe' or his monogram 'CL fecit' as well as 'Christoph Weigel exc. Noremb' at the bottom" (Colas). - Somewhat brownstained throughout, otherwise very well preserved. From the library of the Viennese collector Werner Habel, with his signed and stamped ownership, dated 1978, to the flyleaf. Bertsche 42, 2. Dünnhaupt I, p. 122, 39. Lipperheide Ac 1. Colas II, 2189.

Guillaulme de L’ISLE
Parigi, 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. The best depiction of the Southwest to date, with early … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

London: John Hartley, 1703. Finely bound in late eighteenth century full calf with gilt lettering and decoration. With an armorial nameplate for William Carr on the front pastedown. Sir Thomas Bodley, 1545 - 1613, was an English diplomat and scholar, and founder of the Bodleian Library, Oxford. He was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford, and was admitted as fellow to Merton College. He began lecturing at Merton, and in 1565 he was formally appointed as the college's first Lecturer in Ancient Greek. He served in many college offices and in 1569 was elected as one of the University's junior proctors. On his return from European travels, Bodley was appointed gentleman-usher to Queen Elizabeth and he entered Parliament as member for Portsmouth in 1584. He was later to become a diplomat, but after years of intrigue, he retired from public life in 1596. From 1598, Bodley devoted his life to the library project that was to become the famous Bodleian library at Oxford. He was knighted in 1604. Thomas Hearne, 1678 - 1735, was an English antiquarian. He attracted attention at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, and was employed to compare manuscripts. In 1699 he was made assistant keeper of the Bodleian library, and in 1712 was appointed second keeper.

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. The best depiction of the Southwest to date, with early tra … [Click Below for Full Description]
