         Espagne Triomphante sous le Regne de Philippe V.

      1704 - Paris: De Fer, 1704. Coloured. Four sheets conjoined, total 1000 x 1280mm. Some restoration, as usual with these separate-issue maps, backed on canvas. A superb wall map of Iberia, published soon after the accession of Philippe V to the throne of Spain in 1700. This gave the French reason to celebrate as Philippe was grandson of the French king Louis XIV (the 'Sun King'), meaning a closer connection between the two thrones. In the huge ornamental border are medallion portraits of Philippe and his wife, Marie Louise of Savoy, and 81 medallion portraits going back to the Visgoth king Athaulf (410-5). Bottom left is a plan of Madrid; bottom right is a view of the Escurial Palace. Not all of Europe was as happy as France to have Bourbon kings on the throne of both Spain and France, and soon the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14) broke out, with Charles of Austria the rival claimant. During the war Spain lost both Gibraltar and Minorca to Britain.

Contemporary sprinkled calf, spines richly gilt in compartments, extremities lightly rubbed. [xxx], 372; 417, [1]blank, [8]indexpp. Paris, Guillaume Vandive, ?First edition of Lucas's first voyage. Rare. Lucas made many voyages to the Levant. In 1688 he served with the Venetians at the siege of Negreponte. In 1696 he returned to France with a large collection of medals and other antiquities which were purchased for the Cabinet du Roi. This brought him to the attention of the court, and he then began the series of three voyages for which he is famous. This is an account of his first long voyage 1699-1703, edited from his notes by Baudelot de Dairval. (All of Lucas's works were edited by others.) Lucas was a merchant, naturalist, doctor and antiquary with a flair for discovering antiquities and manuscripts. His accounts of his voyages often border on the fabulous, and he is criticized by other travellers, but his works convey the colour and piquancy of the East, tempered by the editor's classical erudition, form and quotations. Carré calls Lucas the first popularizer. His was the first work to spread a knowledge of Egypt and Persia at the beginning of the 18th Century. Vol. I deals mainly with Egypt and Cyprus, vol. II with Persia and Syria.? (Navari). Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p393; Blackmer, 1036. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A fine, wide-margined copy in original binding. ---- RARE FIRST EDITION of the first authentic record by an Englishman of the pilgrimage to Mecca. Pitts was forced into captivity as a slave at Algiers in 1679 when the merchantman in which he was sailing was captured by an Algerian pirate ship. In 1680, after torture led him to make a declaration of his conversion to Islam, he accompanied his master on the pilgrimage to Mecca via Cairo - of which he gives a very graphic account - Suez and Jeddah. After fifteen years captivity he succeeded in escaping but on his first night back in England was impressed for the navy, from which with difficulty he obtained his release. Pitts gives a brief but sensible and consistent account of what he saw during his pilgrimage. His narrative was the first and most detailed description of the religion of Islam and the manners of Muslims written by a European during the seventeenth century. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

         Tab. XII Asiae, Taprobanam rapraesantans

      Amsterdam 1704 - La Geographia di Claudio Tolomeo curata da Gerard Mercator, è pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1578 a Colonia da Gottfried van Kempen. Successivamente, alla morte del Mercator, ci furono delle ristampe delle carte contenute nelle pubblicazioni di Jodoco Hondius e Petrus Bertius (1605 & 1619). La lastra viene utilizzata, molto dopo in realtà, per l’edizione della Geographia di François Alma, stampata tra Utrecht, Amsterdam e Leida nel 1695, 1698, 1704 (2 tirature) e 1730. Al centro del foglio manca invece il ricco cartiglio con le allegorie dell'astronomia e della geografia, qui sostituito da uno più piccolo di forma ovale, decorato con foglie d'acanto. Published for the first time in 1578 in the Geographia by Mercator, this plate was late included in all the editions of Ptolemy/Mercator published in Utrecht, Amsterdam and Leyden untile 1740. This example comes from the Amsterdam edition of 1704. Copperplate, some foxing, otherwise good conditions. Dimensioni 360 340mm

Mezzotint frontispiece portrait (“Aetatis Suæ 28”) by John Smith (1652-1742) after Sir Peter Lely dated 1703 (CS 284.II, a notably fine impression). Collates [1l. (binder’s blank)], 1l.

Pirie (1934 – 2015) (bookplate; purchased at the foregoing sale through Bernard Quaritch Ltd). "Wycherley still had a mass of unpublished literary manuscripts of poems, scraps of poems, and the like. In the late 1690s he tried to make some money by printing some of these poems, and the bookseller Samuel Briscoe issued proposals for a subscription volume in 1696. They ended up in a dispute over money, and Wycherley was again arrested for debt. It was not until 1704 that Wycherley's large folio of Miscellany Poems appeared. It was badly misjudged. Poems on a woman's 'Fair Back-Side' and on another's 'Fine Breasts' were entirely at odds with the new, chaster sensibility, and for its preface the work has a thirty-page torrent of abuse on those 'who were my Critics before they were my Readers'. Wycherley's legacy was not only literary but also biographical. Posterity saw him as the type of the wicked, attractive, brilliant Restoration wit, rake, and gallant." -- Oxford DNB [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Amphitheatrum Vespasiani, nunc vulgo Il Coliseo.

      Se vend A Amsterdam Chez Pierre Mortier Avec Privil. [1704-5] - Copper engraving Image 438 x 538 mm, Plate 442 x 540 mm, Sheet 522 x 658 mm An architectural illustration of Vespasian's Amphitheatre, known today as the Coliseum. Rather than depicting the structure in partial ruins, Blaeu's study presents the monument in its original form. To the right, a section is removed, allowing for a view of the interior, and of the façades construction details. A few architectural elements are lettered (A-F), with a key in the lower margin detailing the various parts. A coat of arms, surrounded by an elaborate cartouche, is featured in the upper right corner, of the plate followed by an inscription: 'Nobilißimo Prudentißimo / D. Cornello Bicker / Domino in Zwieten, / Consuli Reip. Amstelædamensis / Tabulam hanc D. D. D. / Io: Blaeu.' This engraving was originally published in Johannes Blaeu's 'Theatrum civitatum et admirandorum Italiae' in 1663. The two volume publication featured 119 engraved plates illustrating Italian views, plans, monuments, and sculptures, with the second volume being dedicated to Ancient Rome. In a preliminary edition, a third volume relating to Naples and Sicily was issued. Blaeu's publication proved to be extremely popular, and was therefore reissued several times by various publishers in Amsterdam until 1726. This particular impression belongs to Pierre Mortier's edition. Between 1704 and 1705, Mortier reissued the plates in a four volume edition. Pieter Mortier (1661â€"1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Mortier was born in Leiden. According to Houbraken, David van der Plas worked with him on etchings for Bybelsche Tafereelen (Bible stories), published in Amsterdam in 1700. He was the father of Cornelis Mortier (1699-1783), who in partnership with Johannes Covens I (1697-1774) began the map publishing company Covens & Mortier (1721-1866). He travelled to Paris in 1681-1685 and won the privilege in 1690 of publishing maps and atlases by French publishers in Amsterdam. He used this privilege to win a similar set of privileges for printing an "illustrated print bible" in 1700. He died in Amsterdam. The Blaeu family were one of the most famous publishers of maps, globes and atlases during the seventeenth-century. Cartographers, globe makers and booksellers, the Blaeu business flourished in Amsterdam for over 40 years, until a fire destroyed their premises in 1672. They lost all of their plates, prints and stock, which effectively ruined the firm. Willem Blaeu founded the business in 1596. It initially functioned as a globe and instrument makers, but soon expanded into maps, topography and sea charts. The Atlas Novus was Willems great work; a major work which intended to include the most up-to-date maps of the entire world. He issued the first two volumes in 1635, but died in 1638 before the atlas was completed. The running of the business was passed on to his sons Johannes and Cornelius, in addition to the role of the official cartographer of the East India Company. After the death of Cornelis in 1644, Johannes continued the business alone and established his own reputation as a great mapmaker. Johannes completed his father's grand project in 1655 with the sixth and final volume of the Atlas Novus. He also produced the Tooneel der Steden van der Vereenighde Nederlanden in 1649-1653, as well as a similar set of Italian town plans which were published in 1663. Condition: Vertical centre fold as issued. Large crease across lower left corner of sheet, not affecting printed area. Discolouration and creasing present elsewhere in the margins, and a 3cm tear repair to right margin, also not affecting printed area.

         L’Emporio delle glorie palermitane, o vero il compendio di molti pregi della Città di Palermo, consecrato a S. Rosalia Vergine Palermitana, nella solennità di quest’anno 1704

      Palermo: Domenico Cortese, 1704. 4to (183x129 mm). [4], 138, [2] pp. and [4] engraved folding plates (signed "D. Paulus Amato Ingignerius inventor"). Signatures: †2 A6 B-I8. Decorated woodcut initials and tailpiece. Modern morocco gilt. Upper margin cut a bit short, but not affecting the text, some marginal restorations, small repaired hole on pp. 59/60 with loss of a few words, some foxing and staining, but all in all a good copy.First edition of the description of the festivals held in Palermo, in the year 1704, honoring patron Saint Rosalia. The text is attributed to Ignazio Vio in the dedication. The plates are signed by Paolo Amato, the designer and inventor of all the apparatuses. Amato was an engineer and architect in charge of the decorations for almost all Palermo festivities between the 1680s and 1714, the year of his death. Particularly impressive is one of the folding plates, showing a procession of chariots looking like galleons, which measures 1098 mm of length. The other plates show an incredible firework machine built as a castle on an island surrounded by boats, church apparatuses, and an arch."Con la llegada de la dinastia Borbón al solio español, el festino se enriquecerà con nuovos tipos de decoración; en los palacios públicos y privados, arcos triumfales, etc. Así los vemos en las últimas celebraciones del Palermo español, entre 1701 y 1713… En 1704 el carro de la santa fue sostituido por un simulacro del Bucintoro de Venecia y la máquina de fuegos se presentó come un castillo sobre una isla, rodeado de barcos…" (M. Cornelles, V. Manuel et al., eds., La fiesta barroca. Los reinos de Nápoles y Sicilia (1535-1713), Palermo, 2014)."Nel 1686 il 'valente inventore' dei principali allestimenti è Paolo Amato, il più talentuoso progettista dell'effimero che dominerà la scena palermitana fino al 1714, anno della sua morte; al di là delle iperboli retoriche utilizzate nei ragguagli a prassi festiva trova realmente in Amato l'inteprete più congeniale. Forse proprio attraverso la pratica dell'effimero egli riesce a maturare un linguaggio eterodosso e destrutturato, fondato sulla continua ibridazione di elementi naturalistici e architettonici; in tal modo è in grado di ridurre al minimo le gerarchie sintattiche, realizzando i suoi allestimenti secondo un continuum compositivo che annulla quasi completamente la distanza tra effimero e costruito: gli spettacolari apparati a marmi mischi che egli realizza in tante chiese palermitane ne sono una prova lampante" (M. Sofia di Fede, La festa barocca a Palermo: città, architetture, istituzioni, in: "Espacio, Tiempo y Forma", series VII, t. 18-19, 2005-2006, p. 65).Ignazio de Vio was a Jesuit teacher of theology, mathematics and Hebrew. Between 1693 and 1704 he published several works on the festivity of Santa Rosalia. Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\RMSE\007911; Melzi, I, 355; Sommervogel, VIII, col. 831.
