        Naaukeurige en uitvoerige beschryving van de Kaap de Goede Hoop.Amsterdam, Balthazar Lakeman, 1727. 2 volumes bound as 1. Folio. With engraved title-page, engraved portrait of the author, 6 engraved maps (including one large folding map, 42.5 x 54.5 cm), 1 engraved plan and 45 engraved plates. 18th-century tanned sheepskin with a tree pattern, gold-tooled spine.

      Mendelssohn I, pp. 843-844; Nissen, ZBI 2282; South African bibliography III, p. 7; Tiele, Bibl. 606. Best (and first Dutch) edition of the most important account of the Cape of Good Hope and one of the most important works of all time on South Africa, with twice as many copperplates as the first German edition. Much of the material is based on Kolb's own observations in the years 1705 to 1713, but he also compares them with the observations and theories of earlier writers. The zoological plates show numerous mammals, birds, fish and other marine animals and reptiles, and other plates cover topography, agriculture, hunting, buildings, etc. In addition to these subjects, the text provides detailed information on the customs and habits of the Hottentots, a well-documented account of the VOC government of the Cape, the earliest list of South African animals and much information about plants. It remains an essential primary source for any study of South Africa. Some minor thumbing and foxing in the margins of the textleaves, some of the folds of the plates reinforced and a few occasional minor stains. Binding rubbed along the extremities, hinge slightly cracked at the head. Overall in very good condition.

First Complete Edition of this important work, a Correction/Elucidation of Baronius Caesar's "Annales ecclesiastici a Christi nato ad annum 1198". Antonio (Antoine) Pagi, French ecclesiastical historian 1624-99. He studied with the Aix Jesuits then entered the monastery of the Conventual Franciscans Arles. He devoted his spare time to the study of history. Discerning numerous chronological errors and misstatements of fact in the "Annales Ecclesiastici" of Baronius he made it his life-work to correct them and otherwise elucidate the valuable work. Pagi's first volume was printed during his lifetime (Paris 1689); the remaining three volumes, reaching until 1198, the last year in the work of Baronius, were completed in manuscript shortly before his death. The whole work was edited in four volumes by his nephew Francisci / François Pagi and first published in 1705. Mansi embodied it in his edition of the "Annales" of Baronius (1736-59). "Critica" manifests great care historical knowledge but is not entirely free from error. His other works are: "Dissertatio Hypatica Seu De Consulibus Xsareis" (Lyons, 1682) printed also in "Apparatus in Annales Ecclesiasticos" (Lucca, 1740) "Dissertatio De Die Et Anno Mortis S. Martini Ep. Turonensis", minor treatises in defense of "Dissertatio Hypatica" "D. Antonii Paduani O. Min. Sermones Hactenus Inediti" (Avignon, 1685). From

        [Huis te Nigtevecht, incipit:] Aan den edelen agtbaren heer Pieter Reael, heere tot Nigtevegt, oud-schepen en raad der stad Amsterdam. ende aan syn eds. waarde gemalinne mevrou Maria Eleonora Huidecoper van Maarseveen, vrouwe tot Nigtevegt. werden dese gronden en gezigten van haar edd. huys, met schuldige eerbiedigheyt opgedragen. Amsterdam, Cornelis Danckerts the younger, [ca. 1696]. Royal folio (44.5 x 29.5). With 8 double-page engraved plates (plate size mostly ca. 29.5 x 35.5 cm) by Bastiaan Stopendaal after the designs of Herbert Kramer; and a half-page engraved coats-of-arms of Reael and his wife on the back of the dedication page. Modern half maroon goatskin morocco.

      BAL 796 note; Hollstein XXVIII, p. 132, 25. Rare first and only edition of an architectural print series of 3 elevations and 5 plans of the stately manor house "Huis te Nigtevecht" also known as "De Nes", designed by the Amsterdam architect Herbert Kramer (d. 1705). The house nearly fills a small square island in the Vecht river, near Vreeland, southeast of Amsterdam. One plan includes the surrounding water and the drawbridge that gave access to the house, and another shows the roof. The house was built in 1687 for Pieter Reael (1650-1701), Lord of Nigtevecht, after his 1683 marriage with Maria Eleonora Huydecoper (1658-1706), the daughter of the magistrate, burgomaster of Amsterdam and humanist Balthasar Huydecoper. Huis te Nigtevecht was torn down in 1829/30, so the present print series gives us our best record of its original form. Its large octagonal hall looking on to the garden is of special architectural interest, for it may be the earliest example of this form, which shows French influences. Otherwise it follows the tradition of 17th-century Dutch manor house architecture.In very good condition, with only some browning near some of the folds (from the guards of an earlier binding) and occasionally along the edges.

      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 535 445mm

Royal folio (48 x 33 cm). With hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 2 sets of the 24 engraved plates. Each of the 24 plates is present twice: beautifully hand-coloured with the figures still unnumbered, and in black and white with the figures numbered (and key letters added) but with Rösel's name erased.

      Nissen ZBI 3464; DSB XI, pp. 502-503; Junk, Rara, pp. 162-163. First and only edition, in Latin and German, of a beautiful work on frogs and toads, important from both an artistic and scientific point of view. August Johann Rösel (1705-1759), the author and artist, was the only natural historian of his time who studied both entomology and amphibians and reptiles, an essential combination in today's study of ecosystems.The text is printed in 2 columns, Latin on the left and German on the right, describing the natural history of all German frogs and toads in great detail. While the text proved valuable, the book's greatest fame lies in its plates. They are well designed from a practical point of view, highly artistic and skilfully executed, providing detailed and accurate information, and are beautifully and naturally coloured by hand. The 24 plates are present twice as intended by the publisher. One suite, in the earlier state without figure numbers or key letters, is beautifully coloured by hand, while the other, in the later state with figure numbers and key letters added, but with Rösel's name erased, is in black & white.In fine condition and virtually untrimmed, with only the half-title slightly spotted and occasionally very minor foxing or spots in the text. The binding is worn and scuffed but remains structurally sound. A beautiful copy of a beautiful book: a classic of natural history illustration in colour and an important contribution to the study of frogs and toads.

        Money and Trade considered.

      Edinburgh: Heirs and Successors of Andrew Anderson,, 1705. With a Proposal For Supplying the Nation with Money. Quarto (211 x 164 mm). Bound third in a contemporary pamphlet volume of 16 works on commerce and Scottish poor laws (see below) in contemporary quarter calf and marbled boards, spine titled "Miscellanies" and numbered 35 in gilt in the third compartment. Engraved armorial bookplate of Sir William Forbes Bart of Pitsligo to front pastedown, with his manuscript listing of the contents of the volume on the front free endpaper. Woodcut printer's vignette of a coastline and its reflection to title. Spine and boards worn, spine ends and corners bumped, hinges cracked but holding, pages trimmed in the binding process not affecting text and contents browned with a few marks, overall a very attractive volume. First edition of the major work of the famous Scottish financial adventurer John Law (1671-1729), which presents his theories on the establishment of paper note-issuing national banks. "Like other 18th-century writers Law adopted a disequilibrium theory of money, viewing it as a stimulant to trade. In a state of unemployment, Law maintained that an increase in the nation's money supply would stimulate employment and output without raising prices since the demand for money would rise with the increase in output. Moreover, once full employment was attained the monetary expansion would attract factors of production from abroad, so output would continue to increase" (The New Palgrave III, p. 143). Law put this theory into practice with the establishment of the Banque Générale in Paris in 1716 and then again with the Compagnie d'Occident, established a year later. Although both ventures were immediately successful - leading to his appointment as France's Finance Minister in 1720 - the speculative mania which they prompted eventually caused the bubble to burst; by December 1720, Law's banking system had collapsed, with disastrous repercussions for France's economy and society. Bound up with Money and Trade considered are these additional texts: a) [ARMOUR, James.] Proposals For Restoring Credit; For Making the Bank of England More Useful and Profitable; For Relieving the Sufferers of the South-Sea Company; for the Benefit of that of the East-India; And for Raising the Value of the Land-Interest of Great Britain.

        Anales de Aragon desde el año mil quinientos y quarenta . hasta el año mil quinientos cinquenta y ocho

      Pascual Bueno., Zaragoza. 1705 - 12h + 568 págs + 20h. Palau 211633. José Lupercio Panzano fue el penúltimo de los cronistas aragoneses y el último en publicar una Crónica del Reino. Nombrado en 1703 estuvo poco tiempo en el cargo a pesar de lo cual publico esta obra de notable interés aunque es bien cierto que ya desde 1701 disfrutaba del cargo de forma interina. La obra se publicó el mismo año de su muerte y tuvo algunas dificultades con el Santo Oficio, que incluso llegó a retirar el libro. Ultima de las Crónicas ya que los Borbones eliminaron el cargo de Cronista del reino. En la obra se toca especialmente el reinado del emperador Carlos v con un epítome de su vida. Tras ellos la crónica discurre entre los años 1540 y 1558. Esta crónica dedica más espacio a los temas generales del Imperio que a los propios de Aragón, a los que dedica 10 capítulos de los 40 que consta la obra, Centrada en la visión desde Aragón de los asuntos de Europa, dedica gran espacio a los problemas de Italia y Alemania, guerras, tratados y embajadas. Papel muy limpio, exlibris antiguo manuscrito en portada, Hilario de Cisneros y Saco. Rasgaduras sin perdida y arregladas con papel japón en 7 hojas, casi imperceptibles. Plena piel, con tejuelo y dorados del siglo XIX.

        Genoa

      Amsterdam 1705 - Bellissima grande veduta panoramica a volo d’uccello della città incisa da Bastian Stoopendal. 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. La grande veduta è composta da due lastre. Incisione in rame, due fogli uniti verticalmente, dimensioni 1005x445. Marvellous bird-eye-view of the city, engraved by Bastian Stoopendal, from the second edition of Pierre Mortier’s Nouveu Theatre de L’Italie, printed in Amsterdam in 1724 by Alberts. The view has been realized on two plates. Copperplate, two sheets joined vertically. Bibliografia: Cremonini pp. 83-90. Dimensioni 1005 445mm

        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).
