        Lerice Portus, de l'Etat de Genes

      Amsterdam 1705 - Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Baleu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle città", manchevole delle piante di gran parte della parte settentrionale della penisola. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie". L’opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell’opera. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine ad un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Cremonini pp. 83-90. Dimensioni 510 345mm

        Esatta relazione del dolorosissimo funerale . . . del . . . Imperatore dè Romani Leopoldo primo il Grande

      1705 - Esatta relazione del dolorosissimo funerale della felice memoria dell’augustissimo, potentissimo, et invittissimo imperatore de’ Romani Leopoldo primo il grande. Incisione raffigurante la processione funebre per i funerali di Leopolo I 1640-1705), che fu imperatore del Sacro Romano Impero (1658-1705), re di Boemia (1656-1705) e d'Ungheria (1655-1705). Acquaforte, con l’indirizzo dello stampatore Luigi Neri in basso a destra. Unito un pamphlet commemorativo della cerimonia funebre. Secondo Mark Hengerer, The Funerals of the Habsburg Emperors in the Eighteenth Century: "Nel 1705, appena un’ora dopo la morte di Lepoldo I, il Lord grande intendente e il Ciambellano discutevano dell’allestimento della camera ardente, dell'imbalsamazione e vestizione della salma dell’allestimento della Camera del Cavaliere . con altari e panni neri, le guardie, e la musica. Tutti gli altri aspetti sarebbero stati discussi in una riunione del consiglio con altri funzionari di corte, il giorno successivo ". Leggeri difetti restaurati, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Rarissima. Esatta relazione del dolorosissimo funerale della felice memoria dell’augustissimo, potentissimo, et invittissimo imperatore de’ Romani Leopoldo primo il grande [Exact Relationship of the Most Painful Funeral, of the Happy Memory, of the Most Sacred, Most Powerful, and Most Invincible Roman Emperor Leopold I] (Rome, 1705). Stitched together with a similarly titled broadside containing an engraving "Si Stampa da Luigi Neri in piazza Nauona" [From the press of Luigi Neri in piazza Nauona]. This small broadside commemorate the funeral ceremony for Leopold I (1640-1705), Holy Roman Emperor (1658-1705), King of Bohemia (1656-1705) and of Hungary (1655-1705). According to Mark Hengerer’s The Funerals of the Habsburg Emperors in the Eighteenth Century, "In 1705, only an hour after the death of Leopold I (1658-1705), the High Steward and the Lord Chamberlain discussed the preparations for the lying-in-state, the post mortem, the embalming and robing of the corpse, provision for a first coffin and receptacles für the heart and for the coffin, the fitting of the Knight’s Chamber with altars and black cloths, the guards, and the music. The rest of the arrangements were discussed at a council meeting with other court officials on the next day. At this meeting, the ceremonial records of r657 (concerning the death of Ferdinand IV) were read, and thus became, with only a few variations, the guidelines for the funeral of Leopold I. A nice compliment to the volume: Castrum doloris quod immortali gloriae, et sacratissimis manibus Leopoldi Magni: augustissimi Romanorum imperatoris, Hungariae et Bohemiae regis, archiducis Austriae, &c. &c.

        An Historical, Physiological and Theological Treatise of Spirits, Apparitions, Witchcrafts, and other Magical Practices .

      D. Browne et al, London 1705 - Hardcover, Octavo, (xvi) 400 pp. Full leather binding: contemporary calf boards with typical early brown calf with inner and outer panels, and blind-tooled rules and decorations (detailed, but understated) have been carefully - and almost invisibly - laid down over later leather boards. Rebacked in polished calf with gilt titling and rules to spine. Engraved frontispiece of an "Evil Genius," "Good Genii" and "Jews Going Out in the Moonshine" by Michael van der Gucht. The full title is 'An Historical, Physiological and Theological Treatise of Spirits, Apparitions, Witchcrafts, and other Magical Practices Containing an Account of the Genii or Familiar Spirits, both Good and Bad, that are said to attend Men in this Life; and what sensible Perceptions some Persons have had of them; (particularly the Author's own Experience for many Years.) Also of Appearances of Spirits after Death; Divine Dreams, Divination, Second Sighted Persons, etc. Likewise the Power of Witches, and the reality of other Magical Operations, clearly asserted. With a Refutation of Dr. Bekker's "World bewitch'd"; and other Authors that have opposed the Belief of them.' This is the second issue of the first edition, in which the publisher corrected the mis-spelling of the author's name on the title page. The author's personal belief in spirits and other ethereal beings which he perceived around him clearly influenced the composition of this work - which he drew from a wide variety of earlier sources. John Beaumont (c. 1650–1731) was a English physician with a passion for exotic plants and underground caverns, and a great interest in the occult. The DNB describes Beaumont somewhat unkindly as "a man of considerable reading, of excessive credulity, and a firm believer in supernatural agency. His principal and cer-tainly most curious performance, 'An Historical, Physiological, and Theological Treatise of Spirits, Apparitions, Witchcrafts, and other Magical Practices,' . is written in an amusing, gossiping style, and abounds with grotesque tales and illustrations from little-known authors. His personal experience of spirits, good and bad, was long and varied .; but he innocently contrives to lessen the effect of his narration by adding that in their frequent visitations 'all would disswade me- from drinking too freely.' Beaumont was convinced of the existance of spirits and was a firm believer in the objective reality of witchcraft, and one of his main aims in writing the work was to refute the work of Balthasar Bekker, whom he suggested "laughs at all these things of this Nature as done by Humane contrivance." His work found some favour amongst those with a similar perspective and a German edition was published in 1721. The frontispiece has been bound-in facing p. 1, rather than facing the title-page, but the book is complete. The original leather has a pleasing "antique" look, but the binding is otherwise clean and solid. Endpapers darkened and with previous owner's details on front free endpaper, original owner's name and acquisition date (in the year of publication!) at the head of the title page, reasonably extensive but very pale (and thus relatively unobtrusive) foxing throughout, chip missing from bottom of fore-edge of pp. 17/17. Usual minor flaws of a book of this vintage. Still an attractive, pleasantly-bound copy, in VG+ condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Americas - Henri Chatelain.

      ?Carte des Tres Curieuse de la Mer du Sud, contenant des remarques nouvelles et tres utiles non seulement sur les ports et iles de cette mer, mais aussy sur les principaux pays de l'Amerique tant Septentroinale que Meridionale, avec les noms & la route des voyageurs par qui la decouverte en a ete faite ?Large copper-engraved map, on four joined sheets, in excellent condition. With splendid hand colouring. Published in Amsterdam by Henri Abraham Châtelain between 1705 and 1720.Size (print): 81 x 140 cm, (frame): 107 x 167 cm.An exceptionally fine copy of ?one of the most decorative and impressive maps of the Americas [and] ...a veritable pictorial encyclopedia of the western hemisphere?? (Goss). ?One of the most elaborately engraved maps of the Western Hemisphere ever produced?? (Schwartz & Ehrenberg). This monumental masterpiece is one of the most celebrated expressions of artistic cartography ever produced.Depicting the Americas and the entire Western Hemisphere, it was the most important map of Châtelain?s encyclopaedic Atlas Historique. With maps devised by Châtelain and text by Nicholas Guedeville, it was published in seven folio volumes. This map appeared in the sixth volume as indicated by the notion in the upper right corner. The objective of Châtelain?s opus was to arouse the reader?s curiosity regarding matters of geography, cosmography, topography, heraldry and ethnography; and this map dramatically achieves this goal, as a visual tour de force epitomises the exciting ethic of the age of discovery.In the upper center of the chart are nine portrait medallions featuring important explorers and circumnavigators, including Magellan, Columbus, Vespucci, Magellan, Schouten, Van Noort, L?Hermite, Drake, Dampier, and La Salle.The text includes descriptions of their achievements, and the map features the tracks of their great voyages of discovery, as well as the route of the Manila galleons that the Spaniards used to transfer precious cargo between the New World and Asia.The most striking features of the map are the series of large vignettes, magnificently bordered with proto-rococo motifs, that portray scenes of commerce and exotic ritual in the New World.The scene depicted in the upper left is derived from Nicolas De Fer?s legendary ??Beaver map? and features the industrious creatures at the foot of Niagara Falls, while the area to the right contains a native hunting scene.The decorative cartouche above the Atlantic depicts the Newfoundland Cod fishery, and the vignettes in the adjacent corner showcase the Straits of Gibraltar and the Dutch trading post at Cape Town, with Table Mountain in the background.The lower right corner of the map is adorned with four cartographic insets featuring details of important Latin American cities including Veracruz, Rio de Janeiro, Havana, and Buenos Aires & the River Plata estuary.Surmounting these maps are illustrations relating to Hern?n Cort?s?s landing in Mexico in 1519 and the mining of the mountain at Potos?, Bolivia, the largest source of silver ever discovered. The most sensational expression of artistry on the map embellishes the southern Pacific, featuring a grand series of interconnected cartouches.A map of Mexico City is accompanied by a grand portrayal of the Aztec Temple of the Sun, and is surrounded by cartographic insets of important New World harbors and depictions of exotic animals such as opossums, armadillos and wild boar.To the left is a map of Louisiana, recently settled by the French, surmounted by a scene of a native Canadian wedding and various American activities such as Night Hunting and sugar refining. Maps of the Isthmus of Panama and the Windward Islands of the Caribbean are featured in the lower left corner.Geographically, the map provides a fascinating view of the world before the great wave of exploration that occurred later in the century. Curiously, while the map shows California to be an island, it is also one of the first maps to dispel the insular myth in light of father Eusebio Kino?s discoveries. The map also features numerous missions recently founded in the region. Elsewhere in North America, the Rio Grande is well delineated, but has its source in the mythical Lake Conibas. The Mississippi Basin and the Great Lakes are well depicted as a result of French exploration, but the canoe route from Georgian Bay to Montr?al is shown as a single massive river, whilst actually it was far less direct and replete with portages.A mythical series of large islands, including ?Guadalcanal?? adorn the mid-Pacific, and New Guinea takes an amorphous shape adjacent to the enigmatic ?Terre De Quir??. Australia and New Zealand assume the same partial outline as articulated by Abel Tasman almost a century before. Japan, which was not welcoming to most European explorers, has a very curious appearance, and ?Eso??, supposedly Hokkaido, is located far to the north of Honshu as part of the Asiatic mainland.Literature:- Goss, The Mapmaker?s Art, plate 7.5- Goss, The Mapping of North America, 52- Leighly, California as an Island, pl. xx- McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island, 190- Nordenskiold Collection, 753- Portinaro & Knirsch, The Cartography of North America 1500-1800, plate CVIII.- Schwartz & Ehrenberg The Mapping of America pp.146-147 & plate 85- Suarez, Early Mapping of the Pacific, fig.97- Tooley ?California as an Island??, 80, plate 80, in Map Collectors?

        Maria Sibylla Merian - Ananas (Pineapple).

      Rijpe ananas met cochenille (pineapple with cochineal)Kopergravure vervaardigd naar het ontwerp van Maria Sibylla Merian, uitgegeven te Amsterdam 1705-1719 als deel van Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en met goud gehoogd. Afm. (lijst): 61 x 45cm.Plaat 2 - Ananas. Deze eetbare schijnvrucht wordt op lichte gronden in Suriname gekweekt, zowel in de kustvlakte als in het binnenland. Ananas was voor de komst van Columbus al in cultuur in Zuid-Amerika. De naam komt van de Tupi-indiaanse (Paraguay) naam nana. Met rupsen,vlinders en de cochenille, een schildluis die een kostbare verfstof oplevert.De Duitse Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), dochter van graveur Matthias Merian en stiefdochter van de Nederlandse bloemenschilder Jacob Marrel, bestudeerde en tekende bloemen en insecten. In 1685 verhuisde ze met haar twee dochters naar Nederland, waar ze geboeid raakte door de vlinders en kevers die hier uit Oost- en West-Indi? werden aangevoerd. Zozeer zelfs, dat ze op haar 52ste jaar besloot tot een reis naar Suriname, om daar de flora en fauna persoonlijk te gaan bestuderen. Ze moet een opmerkelijke vrouw zijn geweest.Haar verblijf in Suriname (1699-1701) duurde korter dan haar bedoeling was geweest, omdat ze slecht tegen het klimaat kon, maar lang genoeg om een groot aantal schilderingen van planten en insecten te kunnen maken. Ze tekende de dieren op hun - veronderstelde - voedselplanten.In 1705 gaf ze in eigen beheer het boek Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium uit, een plaatwerk met 60 kopergravures in een Latijnse en Nederlandse uitgave. Postuum, in 1719, verscheen bij Johannes Oosterwyk een uitgave van de Metamorphosis uitgebreid met 12 platen van reptielen, amfibie?n en buidelratten. Merians beschrijvingen van planten en insecten geven de stand van de wetenschap anno 1705. Het is nog steeds een van de beste boeken over Surinaamse insecten ooit verschenen.De tekeningen zijn in het koper gezet door Joseph Mulder, Pieter Sluyter en soms door Merian zelf.Prijs: ?2.650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeleing).

        AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED, in regard to not having received money from Joseph Greene of Waymouth

      Boston, 1705.. 1705.. Very good. - sc - Approximately 40 words penned on a 3-5/8 inch high by 4-3/4 inch wide sheet of creamy white paper, the note addressed to Increase Robinson is dated March 5, "1705/6" and signed "And. Belcher". Once folded, with some slight offsetting at left and minor ink smudges at the top, the note is inlaid in a 10-7/8 inch high by 7-1/2 inch wide cream paper mat. Very good. <p>There is an Andrew Belcher of this period who was a leading ship owner controlling the grain supply of Boston. He was highly successful in trade, sometimes violating the Navigation Acts, and purportedly doing business with pirates. As the largest grain merchant in New England he garnered an appointment as commissary to British forces fighting the French and Indians in Canada. To supply the British, he sold the grain to himself as commissary, netting a substantial profit. He hoarded the grain, depleting the supply of flour and bread in Boston, pushing up the price of bread.<p>A RARE autograph.

        The history of the church of Japan. Written originally in French by Monsieur LÂ’Abbe de T. And now translated into English. By N. N. Volume I.

      London: [publisher not identified], 1705. 4to (21.6 cm; 8.5"). [28], 544, [8] pp. Vol. I only of the English translation of Crasset's Histoire de l'eglise de Japon, originally published in 1689; N.B., the second volume of the translation was not published for several more years, appearing in 1707. Crasset, a Jesuit preacher, made much use of Father Solier's work on the subject, Histoire ecclésiastique des isles et royaumes du Japon, expanding its chronology with his own account of the years from 1624 to 1658. Also included is => a section describing different aspects of secular Japanese life, including diet, housing, and relationships, among other topics.    Provenance: "Ad Cubiculum Sacerdotis Soc. Jesu Hooton" inscribed on title-page in ink; later in the library of the Pacific School of Religion (properly released).         ESTC T94112; later edition in Cordier, Bibliotheca japonica, col. 425–26; DeBacker-Sommervogel, II, 1641. Contemporary Cambridge-style calf, rebacked some time ago with raised bands double-ruled in gilt, two gilt-lettered leather spine labels, and new endpapers; rubbed, especially spine, with a few abrasions. Ex-library as above: evidence of former call number label on spine, bookplate on front pastedown, rubber-stamp on endpaper and title-page, accession pencilling on title-page verso, circulation materials at back. Light pencilling on endpapers, one lower outside corner a tremoin, one leaf repaired, two with small holes and loss of a letter or two, one with a medium tear lightly touching text; light to moderate spotting and age-toning. Not pristine and priced accordingly — yet, a good book.

        The Characters,

      London: printed for Fr. Leach, and sold by T. Newborough [and 3 others],, 1705. Or the Manners of the Age. Made English by Several Hands. With the Characters of Theophrastus, translated from the Greek. And Prefatory Discourse to them, by Monsieur de la Bruyere. The Fourth Edition. Newly Revis'd and Corrected throughout. With the Key inserted in the Margent. Octavo (192 x 110 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, spine gilt in compartments, raised bands, red morocco label, red sprinkled edges. Engraved frontispiece by Gerald van der Gucht. Contemporary bookplate bearing the calligraphic monogram "JKS" to the front pastedown, above the recent bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and collector of eighteenth-century literature in contemporary bindings. Spine slightly dry, short crack to foot of front joint, a few gatherings lightly spotted and browned, contemporary ownership inscription to title, sig. 2D finger-marked in margins. A very good copy in a notably well-preserved binding. An attractively bound copy, including a four-leaf cancel, "An Original Chapter of the Manner of Living with Great Men. After the Method of Monsr. De la Bruyere" bound between 2B5 and 2B6, not noted in ESTC. La Bruyère's Caractères was first published in 1688, with an English translation appearing in 1699, attributed to "many hands" but apparently overseen by Eustace Budgell. "It is impossible to overstate the influence of La Bruyère's Characters on British Enlightenment views of Theophrastan character writing, and on the development of the periodical essay. Though rarely cited in studies of eighteenth-century English literature, this French collection of portraits, maxims, and satiric reflections defined for British critics across the century the character sketch as a literary genre. Samuel Johnson Â… saw a clear line running from the courtly conduct books of Casa and Castiglione, through La Bruyère's Characters, and into the Tatler and Spectator" (Squibbs, Urban Enlightenment and the Eighteenth-Century Periodical Essay, Ch. 3, online).

        Klaudius Civilis, in zestien zangen, . Amsterdam, Pieter Meijer, 1774. Large 4to. With engraved frontispiece by Reinier Vinkeles, included both uncoloured and beautifully hand-coloured and highlighted with gold. Near contemporary half calf (ca. 1800), richly gold-tooled spine.

      - E. de La Fontaine Verwey, Illustr. letterk. werken XVIIIe eeuw, p. 175; W.A.P. Smit, Kalliope in de Nederl., pp. 436, 836. First and only edition of a neoclassical epic poem in rhymed Dutch verse about Claudius Civilis (also known as Julius Civilis), leader of the 69/70 AD Batavian rebellion against the authority of classical Rome. What little is known of the real events comes from Tacitus's Historiae, but in the Dutch Republic the story was revived as a heroic story of the ancient Dutch bravely standing up against the unfair authority of the powerful Roman Empire. The story remained in vogue throughout the 18th-century and the Dutch poet Frans van Steenwijk (1705-1788) gave it its most extensive treatment in the present work. The present copy is of special interest for its beautiful engraved frontispiece by Reinier Vinkeles (1741-1816). It appears in this copy both uncoloured, so that one can see every detail of the engraving, and luxuriously hand-coloured and highlighted with gold.With bookplate. In very good condition and with very generous margins. With the top of the spine slightly damaged, the front hinge cracked and a few scuff marks, but the binding remains generally good.

De Vallemont (1649-1721) deals with many aspects of gardening and agronomy, among others advice on cultivating grain, fruits, trees, but also on how to make an estate profitable. The second part included, is a German translation of L'art ou la Maniere particuliere & seure de tailler les arbres fruitiers (Amsterdam, 1697). The author of the preface states that it was written by a "Liebhaber" and translated into German, but it is most likely an excerpt from Jean de La Quintinye's work on pruning with the same title.With the bookplate of C. Otto G. Wibom on pastedown. Binding slightly soiled. Good copy of a curious work.

      ?Carte des Tres Curieuse de la Mer du Sud, contenant des remarques nouvelles et tres utiles non seulement sur les ports et iles de cette mer, mais aussy sur les principaux pays de l'Amerique tant Septentroinale que Meridionale, avec les noms & la route des voyageurs par qui la decouverte en a ete faite ?Large copper-engraved map, on four joined sheets, in excellent condition. With splendid hand colouring. Published in Amsterdam by Henri Abraham Châtelain between 1705 and 1720.Size (print): 81 x 140 cm, (frame): 107 x 167 cm.An exceptionally fine copy of ?one of the most decorative and impressive maps of the Americas [and] ...a veritable pictorial encyclopedia of the western hemisphere?? (Goss). ?One of the most elaborately engraved maps of the Western Hemisphere ever produced?? (Schwartz & Ehrenberg). This monumental masterpiece is one of the most celebrated expressions of artistic cartography ever produced.Depicting the Americas and the entire Western Hemisphere, it was the most important map of Châtelain?s encyclopaedic Atlas Historique. With maps devised by Châtelain and text by Nicholas Guedeville, it was published in seven folio volumes. This map appeared in the sixth volume as indicated by the notion in the upper right corner. The objective of Châtelain?s opus was to arouse the reader?s curiosity regarding matters of geography, cosmography, topography, heraldry and ethnography; and this map dramatically achieves this goal, as a visual tour de force epitomises the exciting ethic of the age of discovery.In the upper center of the chart are nine portrait medallions featuring important explorers and circumnavigators, including Magellan, Columbus, Vespucci, Magellan, Schouten, Van Noort, L?Hermite, Drake, Dampier, and La Salle.The text includes descriptions of their achievements, and the map features the tracks of their great voyages of discovery, as well as the route of the Manila galleons that the Spaniards used to transfer precious cargo between the New World and Asia.The most striking features of the map are the series of large vignettes, magnificently bordered with proto-rococo motifs, that portray scenes of commerce and exotic ritual in the New World.The scene depicted in the upper left is derived from Nicolas De Fer?s legendary ??Beaver map? and features the industrious creatures at the foot of Niagara Falls, while the area to the right contains a native hunting scene.The decorative cartouche above the Atlantic depicts the Newfoundland Cod fishery, and the vignettes in the adjacent corner showcase the Straits of Gibraltar and the Dutch trading post at Cape Town, with Table Mountain in the background.The lower right corner of the map is adorned with four cartographic insets featuring details of important Latin American cities including Veracruz, Rio de Janeiro, Havana, and Buenos Aires & the River Plata estuary.Surmounting these maps are illustrations relating to Hern?n Cort?s?s landing in Mexico in 1519 and the mining of the mountain at Potos?, Bolivia, the largest source of silver ever discovered. The most sensational expression of artistry on the map embellishes the southern Pacific, featuring a grand series of interconnected cartouches.A map of Mexico City is accompanied by a grand portrayal of the Aztec Temple of the Sun, and is surrounded by cartographic insets of important New World harbors and depictions of exotic animals such as opossums, armadillos and wild boar.To the left is a map of Louisiana, recently settled by the French, surmounted by a scene of a native Canadian wedding and various American activities such as Night Hunting and sugar refining. Maps of the Isthmus of Panama and the Windward Islands of the Caribbean are featured in the lower left corner.Geographically, the map provides a fascinating view of the world before the great wave of exploration that occurred later in the century. Curiously, while the map shows California to be an island, it is also one of the first maps to dispel the insular myth in light of father Eusebio Kino?s discoveries. The map also features numerous missions recently founded in the region. Elsewhere in North America, the Rio Grande is well delineated, but has its source in the mythical Lake Conibas. The Mississippi Basin and the Great Lakes are well depicted as a result of French exploration, but the canoe route from Georgian Bay to Montr?al is shown as a single massive river, whilst actually it was far less direct and replete with portages.A mythical series of large islands, including ?Guadalcanal?? adorn the mid-Pacific, and New Guinea takes an amorphous shape adjacent to the enigmatic ?Terre De Quir??. Australia and New Zealand assume the same partial outline as articulated by Abel Tasman almost a century before. Japan, which was not welcoming to most European explorers, has a very curious appearance, and ?Eso??, supposedly Hokkaido, is located far to the north of Honshu as part of the Asiatic mainland.Literature:- Goss, The Mapmaker?s Art, plate 7.5- Goss, The Mapping of North America, 52- Leighly, California as an Island, pl. xx- McLaughlin, The Mapping of California as an Island, 190- Nordenskiold Collection, 753- Portinaro & Knirsch, The Cartography of North America 1500-1800, plate CVIII.- Schwartz & Ehrenberg The Mapping of America pp.146-147 & plate 85- Suarez, Early Mapping of the Pacific, fig.97- Tooley ?California as an Island??, 80, plate 80, in Map Collectors?

      Kopergravure vervaardigd naar het ontwerp van Maria Sibylla Merian, uitgegeven te Amsterdam 1705-1719 als deel van Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (lijst): 61 x 45 cm.Plaat 46 - Jasmijn met slang. De jasmijn is een heester, oorspronkelijk afkomstig uit Azi?, met welriekende witte bloemen. Onder deze struik vindt men vaak hagedissen, leguanen en slangen, volgens Merian. Op de plant insecten in verschillende stadia van ontwikkeling van rups tot vlinder.De Duitse Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), dochter van graveur Matthias Merian en stiefdochter van de Nederlandse bloemenschilder Jacob Marrel, bestudeerde en tekende bloemen en insecten. In 1685 verhuisde ze met haar twee dochters naar Nederland, waar ze geboeid raakte door de vlinders en kevers die hier uit Oost- en West-Indi? werden aangevoerd. Zozeer zelfs, dat ze op haar 52ste jaar besloot tot een reis naar Suriname, om daar de flora en fauna persoonlijk te gaan bestuderen. Ze moet een opmerkelijke vrouw zijn geweest.Haar verblijf in Suriname (1699-1701) duurde korter dan haar bedoeling was geweest, omdat ze slecht tegen het klimaat kon, maar lang genoeg om een groot aantal schilderingen van planten en insecten te kunnen maken. Ze tekende de dieren op hun - veronderstelde - voedselplanten.In 1705 gaf ze in eigen beheer het boek Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium uit, een plaatwerk met 60 kopergravures in een Latijnse en Nederlandse uitgave. Postuum, in 1719, verscheen bij Johannes Oosterwyk een uitgave van de Metamorphosis uitgebreid met 12 platen van reptielen, amfibie?n en buidelratten. Merians beschrijvingen van planten en insecten geven de stand van de wetenschap anno 1705. Het is nog steeds een van de beste boeken over Surinaamse insecten ooit verschenen.De tekeningen zijn in het koper gezet door Joseph Mulder, Pieter Sluyter en soms door Merian zelf.Prijs: ?1.350,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeleing).

In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en met goud gehoogd. Afm. (lijst): 61 x 45cm.Plaat 2 - Ananas. Deze eetbare schijnvrucht wordt op lichte gronden in Suriname gekweekt, zowel in de kustvlakte als in het binnenland. Ananas was voor de komst van Columbus al in cultuur in Zuid-Amerika. De naam komt van de Tupi-indiaanse (Paraguay) naam nana. Met rupsen,vlinders en de cochenille, een schildluis die een kostbare verfstof oplevert.De Duitse Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), dochter van graveur Matthias Merian en stiefdochter van de Nederlandse bloemenschilder Jacob Marrel, bestudeerde en tekende bloemen en insecten. In 1685 verhuisde ze met haar twee dochters naar Nederland, waar ze geboeid raakte door de vlinders en kevers die hier uit Oost- en West-Indi? werden aangevoerd. Zozeer zelfs, dat ze op haar 52ste jaar besloot tot een reis naar Suriname, om daar de flora en fauna persoonlijk te gaan bestuderen. Ze moet een opmerkelijke vrouw zijn geweest.Haar verblijf in Suriname (1699-1701) duurde korter dan haar bedoeling was geweest, omdat ze slecht tegen het klimaat kon, maar lang genoeg om een groot aantal schilderingen van planten en insecten te kunnen maken. Ze tekende de dieren op hun - veronderstelde - voedselplanten.In 1705 gaf ze in eigen beheer het boek Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium uit, een plaatwerk met 60 kopergravures in een Latijnse en Nederlandse uitgave. Postuum, in 1719, verscheen bij Johannes Oosterwyk een uitgave van de Metamorphosis uitgebreid met 12 platen van reptielen, amfibie?n en buidelratten. Merians beschrijvingen van planten en insecten geven de stand van de wetenschap anno 1705. Het is nog steeds een van de beste boeken over Surinaamse insecten ooit verschenen.De tekeningen zijn in het koper gezet door Joseph Mulder, Pieter Sluyter en soms door Merian zelf.Prijs: ?2.650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeleing).

An attractively bound copy, including a four-leaf cancel, "An Original Chapter of the Manner of Living with Great Men. After the Method of Monsr. De la Bruyere" bound between 2B5 and 2B6, not noted in ESTC. La Bruyère's Caractères was first published in 1688, with an English translation appearing in 1699, attributed to "many hands" but apparently overseen by Eustace Budgell. "It is impossible to overstate the influence of La Bruyère's Characters on British Enlightenment views of Theophrastan character writing, and on the development of the periodical essay. Though rarely cited in studies of eighteenth-century English literature, this French collection of portraits, maxims, and satiric reflections defined for British critics across the century the character sketch as a literary genre. Samuel Johnson saw a clear line running from the courtly conduct books of Casa and Castiglione, through La Bruyère's Characters, and into the Tatler and Spectator" (Squibbs, Urban Enlightenment and the Eighteenth-Century Periodical Essay, Ch. 3, online).
