         Aftekening van Gibraltar. / Plan de la Ville de Gilbraltar

      Artist: Husson Pierre ca ; issued in: The Hague; date: ca1705 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restorations along the orig. outline colours; - size (in cm): 50 x 42; - description: Map shows Gibraltar and its surrounding with detailed representation of rivers and forests. On the upper map a total view of Gibraltar. Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. In 1704, during the War of the Spanish Succession, a combined Anglo-Dutch fleet, representing the Grand Alliance, captured the town of Gibraltar on behalf of the Archduke Charles of Austria in his campaign to become King of Spain. The occupation of the town by Alliance forces caused the exodus of the population to the surrounding area of the Campo de Gibraltar.As the Alliance's campaign faltered, the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht was negotiated and ceded control of Gibraltar to Britain to secure Britain's withdrawal from the war. Unsuccessful attempts by Spanish monarchs to regain Gibraltar were made with the siege of 1727 and again with the Great Siege of Gibraltar (1779 to 1783), during the American War of Independence.Gibraltar became a key base for the Royal Navy and played an important role prior to the Battle of Trafalgar.

      Artist: Chatelain Henri Abraham ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1705 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 46,5 x 58; - description: Map shows the continent of Africa with its countries and borders an a decription of all countries.From volume 6 of Chatelain's monumental 7 volume Atlas Historique.; - vita of the artist: Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684 - 1743) was a Huguenot pastor of Parisian origins. He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

         Nekrokedeia: or, the Art of Embalming

      Printed for the Author, London 1705 - Extremely rare. 3 parts in one, Printed for the Author, London, 1705. First edition. In-8, vii & ii & 365 pages. Bound in an elegant modern full leather, in fine condition. Nekrokedeia is a collection of all things related to death and burial, focusing in particular on the history and art of embalming. Greenhill believed that embalming was a subject just as important as anatomy or surgery and advocated for its practice, discussing it from a medical as well as a religious perspective. The book is divided into three letters, all addressed to a specific doctor: the first to Charles Bernard, Serjeant Surgeon to Queen Anne, the second to John Lawson, the former president of the Royal College of Physicians and the third to Hans Sloane, secretary to the Royal Society (whose vast collection was to become the founding collection of the British Museum). As is perhaps to be expected a large proportion of the book is devoted to exploring the practise of mummification in Ancient Egypt, though it is an exploration long and meandering with many deviations, such as the section on the temperament of the Egyptian people whom he states are hot and dry and of a chearful Temper, yet delight much in an idle and lazy kind of Life, being immoderate votaries to Venus. Large sections of the book, as Greenhill himself admits, are borrowed from previous works, in particular from Athanasius Kirchers work on Ancient Egypt from 50 years earlier. Greenhill's book was originally meant to consist of three parts, but only the first was published and this by subscription. Other examples of the book have an altered title: ".Especially that of Preserving Bodies in most nations of the world" etc. as opposed to this presumably earlier version: "Especially that of Preserving Bodies after the Egyptian Method," etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Carte de la mer Meridional Contenant un partie des Costes de l Afrique et de L Amerique meridionale.

      Artist: Mortier Peter ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1705 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Minor restorations along the orig. outline colours; - size (in cm): 47,5 x 60; - description: Map shows the Atlantic with the coast of South America and the caost of the southern part of Africa.; - vita of the artist: Pieter Mortier (1661?1711) was an 18th-century mapmaker and engraver from the Northern Netherlands. Mortier had a partnership with Johannes Covens I (1697-1774) and founded the map publishing company Covens & Mortier (1721-1866). Mortier, being French himself, had easy access to French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. Consequently, much of Mortier's business was built upon leveraging the sophisticated Dutch printing establishment to issue embellished high quality editions of previously contemporary French maps. In the greater context of global cartography, this was a significant advantage as most Dutch map publishes had, at this point, fallen into the miasma of reprinting their own outdated works. By contrast, the cartographers of France were producing the most accurate and up to date charts anywhere. Mortier's cartographic work culminated in the magnificent nautical atlas, Le Neptune Francois. Upon Pierre's death in 1711 this business was inherited by his widow. In 1721 his son Cornelius Mortier took over the day to day operation of the firm. Cornelius partnered with his brother-in-law Jean Covens to form one of history's great cartographic partnerships - Covens and Mortier - which continued to publish maps and atlases until about 1866.

         Remarks on Several Parts of Italy &c. In the Years 1701, 1702, 1703

      Jacob Tonson, London 1705 - First edition. Engraved headpieces and vignettes. [xii], 534, [10, index] pp., with half-title. 8vo. An incredibly fresh and clean copy of the first edition of Addison's account of his grand tour experiences in Italy. "After travelling south to Marseilles Addison took ship for Italy on 12 December 1700, but was driven back by a storm. In the end he reached Genoa by land, and then proceeded through Pavia to Milan and then Venice, after which he followed the accustomed route south, choosing to go via San Marino and Loreto as he journeyed briefly to Rome and then on to Naples. He climbed Vesuvius, sailed round Capri, and sailed back up the coast to Rome. Here he passed a more extended sojourn, visiting churches, annotating architecture and antiquities, and undertaking trips out to literary shrines such as Tivoli and Frascati. There were poetic echoes on almost every corner for a man as deeply imbued in the ancient corpus as Addison, and he was to coin the phrase 'classic ground' to express a pervading atmosphere of ageless accomplishment, as the familiar texts sprang unbidden into his mind" (ODNB). It was while crossing the Alps in December of 1701 that Addison wrote the poem "A Letter from Italy," one of his most popular.

Contemporary calf, panelled in blind, expertly rebacked to style, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, red and black morocco lettering pieceThe first edition of this important compilation of world voyages, including descriptions of voyages to America, the Arctic, Africa, the Middle East and China.A collection of important voyages, which, as Harris himself describes "begins with the most early Discoveries, and Settlements of Trade, and reaches down to the Year 1626, where Purchas ends his Collection. But you will find here a succinct Account, of the Books of very many other Authors, which are neither in Him nor Hackluit ... The Second Volume hath nothing out of Purchas and Hackluit; but is entirely New: Being taken from the best of all the Modern Authors extant ... the Index is so very large and compleat, that you may there readily find the Description of any Part of the World; or an Account of any Bird, Beast, or Plant ... that hath been descib'd by Travellers."The work would be republished in second and third editions, but the first edition has become quite rare. "The first edition is valuable for the original impressions of the fine series of maps by Herman Moll, including a very good one of America. Also there is a map of the world according to Mercator's projection, with improvements, showing the northern coast line and part of the west and south coasts of Australia together with parts of Tasmania and New Zealand. Among the voyages included are those of Magellan, Drake, Cavenish, Schouten, Hawkins, Narbrough, and Dampier" (Hill).Hill (2004) 774; Sabin 30482; Alden & Landis 705/90.

Hayhurst to the front free endpaper, heir to a successful chain of dispensing chemists, based in Nelson, Lancashire: "A collector of books, in a delightful room at his home, white-painted bookshelves stacked high on all the available wall space show to advantage the hand-tooled leather bindings of a collection that has been acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September 1957).

         Remarks on Several Parts of Italy &c. In the Years 1701, 1702, 1703

      London: Jacob Tonson, 1705. First edition. Engraved headpieces and vignettes. [xii], 534, [10, index] pp., with half-title. 8vo. Contemporay Cambridge calf, citron morocco spine label, red sprinkled edges. Small chip to head of spine, else fine. Old shelf label at foot of spine, book label on front pastedown. First edition. Engraved headpieces and vignettes. [xii], 534, [10, index] pp., with half-title. 8vo. An incredibly fresh and clean copy of the first edition of Addison's account of his grand tour experiences in Italy. "After travelling south to Marseilles Addison took ship for Italy on 12 December 1700, but was driven back by a storm. In the end he reached Genoa by land, and then proceeded through Pavia to Milan and then Venice, after which he followed the accustomed route south, choosing to go via San Marino and Loreto as he journeyed briefly to Rome and then on to Naples. He climbed Vesuvius, sailed round Capri, and sailed back up the coast to Rome. Here he passed a more extended sojourn, visiting churches, annotating architecture and antiquities, and undertaking trips out to literary shrines such as Tivoli and Frascati. There were poetic echoes on almost every corner for a man as deeply imbued in the ancient corpus as Addison, and he was to coin the phrase 'classic ground' to express a pervading atmosphere of ageless accomplishment, as the familiar texts sprang unbidden into his mind" (ODNB). It was while crossing the Alps in December of 1701 that Addison wrote the poem "A Letter from Italy," one of his most popular. ESTC T74575

         Sacro arsenale overo prattica dell'Officio della S. Inquisitione. Con l'inserzione d'alcune regole fatte dal P. Inquisitore Tomaso Menghini, domenicano, di diverse annotazioni del Dottore Gio. Pasqualone, fiscale della Suprema Generale Inquisizione di Roma. Et in questa seconda impressione corretta in alcune cose la parte X degl'avvertimenti, quali sono posti in ordine alfabetico con un indice a parte. Dedicato alla Santita di Nostro Sig. Clemente XI.In Roma, nella Stamperia della Rev. Cam. Apostolica, 1705.

      In Roma, nella Stamperia della Rev. Cam. Apostolica 1705 - Cm. 22, pp. (8) 426 (44). Stemma cardinalizio Albani al frontespizio. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con dorso a 5 sottili nervi e tagli spruzzati. Restauro all'angolo esterno bianco delle carte finali d'indice (senza alcuna lesione del testo); trascurabile alone limitato al margine inferiore di poche carte, sporadiche fioriture. Esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Eliseo Masini, nato a Bologna nella seconda metà del XV secolo e morto a Genova nel 1627, fu commissario del S. Uffizio, giudice della fede e inquisitore ad Ancona, Mantova e Genova. "Dall'attività di giudice, il M. trasse ispirazione per compilare quello che restò per molto tempo il solo manuale in volgare destinato ai giudici del S. Uffizio romano: il Sacro arsenale overo Prattica dell'officio della Santa Inquisitione (Genova 1621). Il successo fu quasi immediato, anche perché il testo si presentava come un vademecum d'ufficio privo del consueto e sovrabbondante commento alle fonti bibliche, giuridiche e teologiche che, ancora nella prima metà del Seicento, appesantiva le pratiche e i testi di diritto inquisitoriale. Inoltre il S. Uffizio romano non poteva vantare né le istruzioni in volgare che la Suprema spagnola fece distribuire sin dalla nascita ai giudici di distretto, né le guide o i compendi che autori come Diego de Simancas o Pablo Garcìa avevano compilato negli anni Sessanta del XVI secolo. Il Sacro arsenale colmava dunque un vuoto editoriale grazie a un sapiente collage compilato a partire dalla Breve informatione per i vicari e dalle lettere circolari che la congregazione, dagli anni Ottanta del Cinquecento, aveva inviato ai giudici locali per mettere a conoscenza i singoli uffici del tribunale delle proprie prescrizioni amministrative o giudiziarie" (cfr. voce M. in DBI, vol. 71). Edizione tra le più complete di questo celebre manuale per l'inquisitore che doveva esaminare (e talvolta procedere alle diverse forme di tortura) eretici, sospetti d'eresia, fautori degli eretici, maghi, streghe, incantatori, bestemmiatori, oppositori del S. Uffizio, ebrei e infedeli. Cfr. Iccu; Edizioni giuridiche antiche in lingua italiana, II, 1, p. 30. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
