Par Le R. P. Louis Hennepin, Missionaire Recollect & Notaire Apostolique. Verfasser Hennepin, Louis Verl. / Druck. Someren, Abraham van Erschienen Amsterdam : Someren, 1698 Online-Ausg. Halle, Saale : Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Sachsen-Anhalt, 2013 Umfang [36] Bl., 506 S., [2] gef. Bl. ; 12° : Kupfert., 2 Ill. (Kupferst.) Anmerkung Vorlage des Erscheinungsvermerks: A Amsterdam, Chez Abraham van Someren, Marchand Libraire. MDCXCVIII. Sprache Französisch HENNEPIN, LOUIS (baptized Antoine), priest, Recollet, missionary, explorer, historiographer; b. 12 May 1626 at Ath, in Belgium, son of Gaspard Hennepin, a butcher, and of Norbertine Leleu; d. c. 1705. Louis Hennepin attended the École latine in the town of Ath (province of Hainaut), and did his classical studies there. Around the age of 17 he donned the rough homespun of the Franciscans at the convent of Béthune (department of Pas-de-Calais), and began his noviciate under the direction of Father Gabriel de La Ribourde*. He continued his studies at the convent of Montargis (department of Loiret), with Father Paul Huet* as his master, then entered the priesthood. Imbued with sincere missionary fervour, and adventurous into the bargain, he immediately sought to give free expression to his zeal and his natural inclination. After a period of time spent with his sister Jeanne at Ghent, where he acquired some knowledge of Flemish, he set out for Rome with the object of interesting the higher authorities of the order in his missionary ideal. He received permission to visit a number of sanctuaries and monasteries in Italy and Germany on the way back, "Whereby," he wrote, "I began to satisfy my natural curiosity." When he reached the low countries Hennepin settled at Hal (province of Brabant), on the order of the provincial superior, Father Guillaume Herincx. For a year he carried on a preaching ministry, then he went to Artois, staying in the convents situated along the coast: Biez, Calais, Dunkirk. His romantic mind caught fire when he heard the sailors’ stories, some of them strange ones. Indeed Hennepin, hiding behind tavern doors, drank in the adventurous seamen’s words. "I would have spent whole days and nights in this occupation, which I found so pleasant," he wrote in the Nouvelle découverte, "because I always learned something new about the beauty, fertility, and wealth of the countries where these people had been." During the war started by Louis XIV in 1672 he devoted himself in Holland to the care of the wounded and sick; in 1673 he spent eight months in this fashion at Maastricht (Netherlands). A contagious illness obliged him to rest for a time; once he was cured, he took up his task again and was present at the battle of Seneffe (Hainaut) on 11 Aug. 1674. The following year, on 22 April 1675, Louis XIV asked the Recollets to send five missionaries to New France in the near future. The superiors chose Fathers Chrestien Le Clercq*, Luc Buisset, Zénobe Membré*, Louis Hennepin, and Denis Moquet (the latter, who was sick, stayed in Europe). At the end of May 1675, with Cavelier* de La Salle, the missionaries left Europe. The eager missionary lost no time in getting to work. He gave the Advent and Lent sermons at the Hôtel-Dieu of Quebec on Bishop Laval’s invitation, and went through countryside and village, preaching the gospel at Cap-Tourmente, Trois-Rivières, Sainte-Anne de Beaupré, and Bourg-Royal. In the spring of 1676 he went to Lake Ontario to replace Father Léonard Duchesne at Cataracoui (Fort Frontenac, now Kingston, Ont.). Hennepin’s activity never flagged; with his confrère Luc Buisset, he built a "mission house" which was soon frequented [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Traite des fougeres de l'Amerique

      1705. PLUMIER, Charles. Traité des fougères de l'Amérique. [4], xxxvi, 1-93, 98-146, [10] pp. Illustrated with 172 full-page engravings of ferns. Folio, 167 x 106 mm, bound in contemporary limp vellum, title in MS on spine, pair of fore-edge ties. Preserved in beige linen slipcase. Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1705. |~||~||~||~||~| First Complete Edition. One of the most beautiful botanical books by one of the era's most important botanical explorers. This publication of Plumier's descriptions and plates of American ferns was compiled by the author the year before his death. In Latin and French. The first half of this volume contains a preface and descriptions to accompany each of the plates, which detail the characteristics of the various species of American ferns depicted. The text is laid out in two parallel columns, with French in Roman and Latin in Italics. The Latin text appeared for the first time in 1703 under the title Filicetum Americanum without illustrations; the present book is the first to contain both the Latin and French text. The first 50 plates originally appeared in 1693 in Plumier's Description des plantes de l'Amerique. The 172 full-page engravings are masterful works of print-making. Plumier's attention to detail allows for precise renderings of the fern's structure and texture. The plants are often printed off-center and/or running off the edge of the page, the bold mise en page gives the viewer a sense that the ferns are sprouting beyond the confines of the book itself. Charles Plumier (1646-1704) was born in Marseilles and entered the religious order of the Minims at sixteen. During his years in the monastery, he concentrated his studies on mathematics, physics, and botany. He was the student of a number of famous botanists, including the Cistercian Paolo Boccone and Joseph Pitton de Tournefort, who brought him on his botanical expeditions. The Dominican botanist Jean-Baptiste Labat accompanied and assisted the author on his voyage to the West Indies. After Plumier's first trip to the French Antilles, he was appointed Botaniste du Roi and was sent to the Americas two other times, by King Louis XIV. He died in 1704, right before he was to commence his fourth voyage publish this title. The fern genus Plumiera was named in his honor by Tournefort and Linnaeus. Plumier's Fougères de l'Amérique was published and printed at the Imprimerie Royale in the Louvre. As demonstrated by this work, France was setting a new standard for book craftsmanship and design in the early eighteenth century. The choice of paper, the mise en page, and especially the typography are of exceptional quality. A number of the fonts created at l'Imprimerie Royale have become classics and are still in use today. Insignificant foxing throughout, regular wear to binding, but overall a lovely copy in a contemporary vellum binding. A very scarce book. Nissen, BBI 1548. Pritzel 7216. Bernard, Histoire de l'Imprimerie Royale du Louvre p. 157. Sabin p. 205-6. Not in Hunt, Stafflau, or the collection or sale catalogue of Arpad Plesch.

Immense index follows text of third volume. ESTC T53940, N9850, T147811. An account of the English Civil War, the first comprehensive work on the topic, written by one of its key players who was subsequently banished. Originally written from 1646 to 1648, the author later combined it with his autobiography and updated it to include events since 1644. David Hume provided a critical but ultimately positive review of the work some fifty years after its initial publication from 1702-1704: "This age affords great materials for history; but did not produce any accomplished historian. Clarendon, however, will always be esteemed an entertaining writer, even independent of our curiosity to know the facts, which he relates. His style is prolix and redundant, and suffocates us by the length of its periods: But it discovers imagination and sentiment, and pleases us at the same time that we disapprove of it. He is more partial in appearance than in reality: For he seems perpetually anxious to apologize for the king; but his apologies are often well grounded. He is less partial in his relation of facts, than in his account of characters: He was too honest a man to falsify the former; his affections were easily capable, unknown to himself, of disguising the latter. An air of probity and goodness runs through the whole work; as these qualities did in reality embellish the whole life of the author." (The History of Great Britain, 1756)

        An Introduction to the History of the Kingdoms and States of Asia, Africa and America, Both Ancient and Modern, According to the Method of Samuel Puffendorf, Counsellor of State to the Late King of Sweden

      London: Printed by R. J. for T. Newborough, at the Golden Ball, J. Knapton, at the Crown, in St. Paul's Church-Yard; and R. Burrough, 1705. 8vo, contemporary panelled calf, long ago rebacked, with original backstrip laid down, and corners restored, four black morocco backstrip labels bordered and lettered in gilt. [xxiv], 621, [10(index)] pp. With the bookplate of the soldier and Jacobite William North (1678-1734), sixth Baron North and Baron Gray of Rolleston. Covers slightly worn, portion of title label lacking; with intermittent interior dampstains; but overall a very good copy. First Edition. A very scarce and little-known early account of the Americas. Not surprisingly, the history of Asia occupies 414 pages ( including a long recapitulation of the Bible); while Africa receives just 100 pages, and only 110 pages are devoted to the upstart America. This final section is primarily concerned with accounts of the Aztec and Inca Empires and their conquest by the Spaniards; history and legend are thoroughly blended. Authorship of this rare compendium is usually ascribed to the failed physician and "miscellaneous writer" (DNB). Jodocus Crull, whose several historical publications included a translation into English of Baron von Pufendorf's Introduction to the History of the Principal Kingdoms and States of Europe, published in 1699. James Ford Bell Library Cat. 145. Sabin 32176 (listing only the title, and that erroneously).

Immense index follows text of third volume. ESTC T53940, N9850, T147811. An account of the English Civil War, the first comprehensive work on the topic, written by one of its key players who was subsequently banished. Originally written from 1646 to 1648, the author later combined it with his autobiography and updated it to include events since 1644. David Hume provided a critical but ultimately positive review of the work some fifty years after its initial publication from 1702-1704: "This age affords great materials for history; but did not produce any accomplished historian. Clarendon, however, will always be esteemed an entertaining writer, even independent of our curiosity to know the facts, which he relates. His style is prolix and redundant, and suffocates us by the length of its periods: But it discovers imagination and sentiment, and pleases us at the same time that we disapprove of it. He is more partial in appearance than in reality: For he seems perpetually anxious to apologize for the king; but his apologies are often well grounded. He is less partial in his relation of facts, than in his account of characters: He was too honest a man to falsify the former; his affections were easily capable, unknown to himself, of disguising the latter. An air of probity and goodness runs through the whole work; as these qualities did in reality embellish the whole life of the author." (The History of Great Britain, 1756)

Alulfi De expositione Novi Testamenti libe Countess Mary Margaret Waldstein (1689-1725), was the wife of Prince Franz Josef of Waldstein (1680-1722), was an early supporter of the Capuchin Order and their monastery in Hradiste, present-day Czechoslovakia. She is called the “mother of the Capuchins.” The House of Waldstein is a Czech noble family, that received prominent state and civil positions beginning in the 17th century. It was one of the first among the Bohemian nobility to be promoted to Graf (count) in 1628, and two years later to the imperial court. Its most famous members include General Albrecht von Wallenstein and statesman Ferdinand Gabriel von Waldstein, the patron of Ludwig van Beethoven. The Order of the Capuchin Friars Minor, is an Order of friars in the Catholic Church, one of the chief offshoots of the Franciscan Order. The Order began in 1520 when Matteo da Bascio, an Observant Franciscan friar, said he had been inspired by God with the idea of that the manner of life led by the Franciscans, at the time, was not in keeping with their found, St. Francis of Assisi had envisioned. He created the Capuchin Order to return to the primitive way of life solitude and penance as practiced by St. Francis. The name of their order comes from the Cappuccio, a hood worn by the Camaldolese monks, in gratitude for refuge given by the monks in the initial years of the order. Dr. Johann August Wilhelm Neander (1789-1850) was a German theologian and church historian. Originally born into a Jewish family, he changed his name to Neander when he became a Christian in 1806. A German Lutheran, he studied with F D. Schleiermacher (1768-1834) in Berlin, but soon switched his interest from speculative theology to church history. His General History of the Christian Religion and Church (Allgemeine Geschichte der christlichen Religion und Kirche) remains the greatest monument of his genius. In this Neander's chief aim was everywhere to understand what was individual in history. In the principal figures of ecclesiastical history he tried to depict the representative tendencies of each age, and also the types of the essential tendencies of human nature generally. His guiding principle in dealing both with the history and with the present condition of the church was "that Christianity has room for the various tendencies of human nature, and aims at permeating and glorifying them all; that according to the divine plan these various tendencies are to occur successively and simultaneously and to counterbalance each other, so that the freedom and variety of the development of the spiritual life ought not to be forced into a single dogmatic form" (Otto Pfleiderer). Neander had considerable influence not only in his own church and country but also further afield through the combination of scholarly excellence and personal interest that he achieved in his teaching and writing. Neander believed that church history is not just an academic pursuit but part of the mission and ministry of the church. The Congregation of St. Maur, often known as the Maurists, were a congregation of French Benedictines, established in 1621, and known for their high level of scholarship. The congregation and its members were called after Saint Maurus (died 565), a disciple of Saint Benedict credited with introducing the Benedictine rule and life into Gaul. The primary idea of the movement was not the undertaking of literary and historical work, but the return to a strict monastic régime and the faithful carrying out of Benedictine life. Their historical and critical school produced a number of works of scholarship which still are of permanent value. The foundations of this school were laid by Dom Tarisse, the first superior-general, who in 1632 issued instructions to the superiors of the monasteries to train the young monks in the habits of research and of organized work. The output was prodigious, coming from a single society. The qualities that have made Maurist work proverbial for learning are its critical tact and its thoroughness. Pope Gregory I (Latin: Gregorius I; c. 540 â€?" 12 March 604), commonly known as Saint Gregory the Great, was Pope from 3 September 590 to his death in 604. Gregory is well known for his writings, which were more prolific than those of any of his predecessors as pope. He is also known as St. Gregory the Dialogist in Eastern Orthodoxy because of his Dialogues. For this reason, English translations of Orthodox texts will sometimes list him as Gregory Dialogus. Throughout the Middle Ages he was known as “the Father of Christian Worship” because of his exceptional efforts in revising the Roman worship of his day. His contributions to the development of the Divine Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, still in use in the Eastern Orthodox Church, were so significant that he is generally recognized as its de facto author. The Protestant reformer John Calvin admired Gregory and declared in his Institutes that Gregory was the last good pope. He is the patron saint of musicians, singers, students, and teachers. The mainstream form of Western plainchant, standardized in the late 9th century, was attributed to Pope Gregory I and so took the name of Gregorian chant. Gregory is commonly credited with founding the medieval papacy and so many attribute the beginning of medieval spirituality to him. Gregory is the only Pope between the fifth and the eleventh centuries whose correspondence and writings have survived enough to form a comprehensive corpus. GREGORIUS I MAGNUS (540-604)

        Biblia Hebraica

      1705. HEBREW BIBLE. Biblia Hebraica, secundum ultimam editionem Jos. Athiae, a Johanne Leusden denuo recognitam, recensita...adornata variisque notis illustrata ab Everardo van der Hooght. Four parts in one volume, paginated continuously in two sections. [25], 333; [1], 352, [22] ff. Engraved title-page to the first part and woodcut title-pages to parts II-IV, plus a general title-page printed in red and black. Thick 8vo., 205 x 125 mm, bound in contemporary Dutch calf, front and back boards covered in embossed gold cloth, brown cloth endpapers, edges speckled red. Amsterdam & Utrecht: Boom, Waesberge, Goethals, Borstius, Wolters, Halma, van de Water, and Broedelet, 1705. |~||~||~||~| Second Edition. The forward, in Latin, thoroughly establishes the textual history of this version, which "reproduced in the main the Athias-Leusden text...and became itself 'the parent of the ordinary reprints'" (Darlow & Moule). Annotated by Hooght (1642-1716) and edited by Johannes Leusden (1624-1699) with copious sidenotes in Latin adorning the Hebrew text, this version of the Old Testament was corrected by Joseph Athias (d. 1700) using both codices and printed texts -- the first to do so. "In 1661 and 1667 [Athias] issued two editions of the Hebrew Bible. Though carefully printed, they contain a number of mistakes in the vowel points and the accents. But as they were based on the earlier editions compared with the best manuscripts, they were the foundation of all the subsequent editions..." (NCE online, "Joseph Athias"). "Van der Hooght corrected the second edition of Athias according to the Massorah and the previously printed editions (Amsterdam and Utrecht, 1705); his attention to the smallest details and the printer's care account for the general favour with which the edition was received" (NCE online, "Editions of the Bible"). The woodcut title-page borders are copied from the Athias text. The authors responsible for the judicia were professors at various universities in the Netherlands, including the Academia Frisiorum Franeker (the University of Franeker, Friesland), the Netherlands' second oldest university, disbanded by Napoleon in 1811. Mild occasional staining, one leaf reinforced at fore-edge; overall a nice copy, uniquely bound. Darlow & Moule 5141. Zedner 100. Pettigrew II, p. 180. STCN 170508.

The 11 kingdoms are: Galicia, Leon, Old Castile, Navarro, Aragon, New Castile, Andalusia, Grenada, Valencia, Murcia, and the Islands of Majorca, Minorca, and Ibiza (as one). The principalities are Asturias, Biscay, and Catalonia. Portugal ("in which is included Algarve") is "divided in 5 principal parts" and listed in order from north to south: Entre Minho e Douro, Tra Los Montes, Beira, Estremadura Lisbon, and Alentejo. Allard was part of a family of map publishers that flourished in Amsterdam during the 17th century, publishing the work of the most illustrious mapmakers of the time, including Blaeu, Jansson, and Visscher. Carel Allard had perfected his style of engraving, and extended his skill beyond maps to engrave portraits of English royalty (in particular William and Mary) and other important subjects.

Die Liste der Statthalter erscheint in diesem Zusammenstellung bis zum Grafen Falbenhaupt geführt, welcher 1695 das Statthalteramt antrat.

        Exactissima Helvetiae Rhaetiae Valesiae Caeterorumq Confoederatorum ut et finitimorum Popularum [Precise Map of Switzerland, Rhaetia, Valesia and Regions of Neighboring Confederated Nations].

      Amsterdam: Frederick De Wit, c. 1705. - Single sheet, (21 ¼ x 24 ¼ inches; 18 ¼ x 22 ¼ inches to the neat line; full margins showing the plate mark). Exceptionally fine engraved map of Switzerland with MAGNIFICENT ORIGINAL HAND COLOR IN FULL, with the individual regions shown in different bold watercolors of green, pink, and yellow, the topographical features shown pictorially, HEIGHTENED WITH LIQUID GOLD, the fine compass rose pointing north with a GOLD-ENHANCED FLEUR-DE-LIS, surrounded by a border of yellow wash (separating along old central fold, slightly toned). A beautifully detailed map of Switzerland and surrounding regions in present-day France, Germany, and Italy with EXCEPTIONALLY FINE HAND COLOR HEIGHTENED WITH LIQUID GOLD. This map features two decorative cartouches: the larger is flanked by two putti, one in military garb, and the smaller has one putto and reads "Illustrissimis. Potentissimis ac Florentissimis Rebus-Publicis Helvetiorum, Tigurinae, Bernensi Basiliensi Scaphusinae Novam hanc & postomnes alias Exactissinam Helvetiae Tabulam d. d. d." Originally published by the second Nicholas Visscher, a new edition of this map was later published by his son Nicholas (1649-1709) in his monumental work "Atlas Minor" (1680). Versions were also issued by Peter Schenk and Frederick De Wit in "Atlas Maior" (as here) at the end of the 17th century and subsequently reprinted in various editions. Deftly illustrated with topographical features, in particular the extensive mountain ranges, with hundreds of small villages named. A small compass rose sits below a cherub holding the scale of miles, which shows Swiss, German, Italian, and French measurements. Several cities are noted with a LIQUID GOLD dot: Basel, Schaffhausen, Bern, Geneva, Chur, Worms, Morbegno, Lucerne, Stans, Sion, Chiavenna, Schwyz, Zug, Altdorf, Glarus, Fribourg, and Bergamo. "When pre-modern Switzerland is being compared with other European states it is important to remember that the former was not a centralized monarchy but mainly a confederation of sovereign city-states and peasant republics. Hence there was no truly centralized or mercantilised economic policy. Just as importantly, cottage industries, proto-industrialisation, markets and (to a large extent) foreign trade were directed and controlled by the 'capitals' of the major city-states. The further these 'capitals' were from the centre of Switzerland, the greater their economic dominance. There was a considerable variety of rural-urban relationships between individual city-states. In the secondary and tertiary sector, for example, Basle, Zurich, Schaffhausen and Geneva pursued a consisted economic policy which favoured entrepreneurs and merchants living in the capital. The policies of the old state of Berne, on the other hand, encouraged the economic activities which had developed in the towns and larger rural centres. In the peasant republics and the city-states of central Switzerland, the dominant economic activities of milk and livestock production, mercenary service and the corresponding foreign trade had always been under the control of the socio-politically dominant families in the capital or the rural centres. For banking and exchange facilities, in particular international payment transactions and capital investment, they were wholly dependent on the commercial bankers of Geneva, Lausanne, Berne, Basle and Zurich. In the central region between Geneva and Lake Constance, where proto-industrialisation and the outwork system were solidly established, the division of labour between town and country, still perceptible in the late middle ages and the sixteenth century, became progressively blurred: by the end of the ancien regime, a more or less unified economic area had been created which was able to adapt to the economic liberalism of the nineteenth century with a considerable degree of flexibility" (Epstein, p. 249). The Visscher family was one of the most distinguished of all 17th-century cartographic firms, and a major player in

        Oeconomus prudens et legalis. Oder Allgemeiner Klug- und Rechts-verständiger Haus-Vatter / bestehend In Neun Buchern [...] mit Rechtlichen Anmerckungen auf allerhand vorfallende Begebenheiten versehen durch Johann Christoph Donauern

      Nurnberg, Frankfurt, Leipzig: Riegel, 1705. Nunmehro zum Andern mal gedruckt. GOOD. Folio. [8] ff. (lacking half-title), 1230, 415 [i.e. 178] pp., [28] ff. In this copy the Forward is misbound before the Dedication. Illustrated throughout with large engravings in the text + 38 engraved plates (of 40: lacking Nos. III & XIX, also lacking engraved frontispiece). Two text leaves (p. 679 and p. 3 of Book VIII) torn with loss, final leaves wrinkled and soiled. Later German calf (19th-century?), very worn but sound, all edges gilt. Preserved in a fitted cloth case (Cloverleaf Studio) A MASSIVE, LEATHER-BOUND FOLIO WRITTEN FOR THE ARISTOCRATIC PROPRIETOR AND DESIGNED TO PROVIDE GUIDANCE FOR RURAL LIFE. This second, improved edition of Florin's "Prudent and Lawful Steward," is surely THE LAST GREAT HAUSBUCH OF THE GERMAN ENLIGHTENMENT. It is described by NDB as "the most extensive and most splendidly illustrated work of German Hausvätter literature." This "household book" was addressed to the Hausvater -- the master of the household -- and was written in the vernacular German rather than in Latin. It combined theory with practical information about building and agriculture and thus dealt with wide-ranging matters that in modern terminology would be classified as morals and ethics, psychology, pedagogy, personnel management, engineering and architecture. This exhaustive technical manual for management of estates was compliled in nine books, and covers general building, industry, devices, weather, seasons, landscape gardening, agriculture, tobacco production, horticulture, horses, vehicles, bees, fish, brewing (beer), firearms, coffee, tea, chocolate, anatomy, diseases, medicin, and even includes a short cook book. In the present usage, 'Haus' meant the people rather than the structure. * "Franz Philipp Florinus (died 1699), like many of the household book authors, was a Protestant clergyman. Before taking over the parsonage of Edelfeld and Kirmreuth in 1679, he had been the curator of the princely library of Christian August von Sulzbach, and in this post he had presumably enjoyed access to the books of the ancient and modern authors upon which he based his economics. Florinus was an active agriculturalist, for he not only managed the estate attached to his parsonage but also a manor of his own. On the latter he enjoyed the priviledge of a Braurecht, the bestowed 'freedom' to brew beer for a specified consumer public... An active and versitile individual, Florinus brought together his scholarly and practical knowledge in his massive handbook, 'Oeconomus prudens et legalis,' which was fifteen inches high, nine inches wide, and nearly five inches thick" (SOURCE: Marion W. Gray, "Productive Men, Reproductive Women: The Agrarian Household and the Emergence of Separate Spheres during the German Enlightenment," 2000, pp. 56-57 and passim).

        Insula Ceilon olim Taprobana Incolis Tenarisin et Lankawn.

      Amsterdam: Frederick De Wit, c. 1705. - Single sheet, (21 x 24 ½ inches; 19 ½ x 23 1/8 inches to the neat line; full margins showing the plate mark). Fine engraved map of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), surrounded by a border of yellow wash with original hand color in full, the individual territories shown in different bold watercolors of yellow, green, and pink, the title within a STUNNING HISTORIATED CARTOUCHE HEIGHTENED IN LIQUID GOLD, with north oriented to the right, decorated with a fine compass rose pointing north with a GOLD-ENHANCED FLEUR-DE-LIS (old central fold, slightly toned). Very fine engraved map of Sri Lanka, emphasizing Dutch interest in the island and embellished with LIQUID GOLD. The elaborate title cartouche depicts three Ceylonese figures with an elephant and palm tree, and the colorist has added a lovely marble effect to the title placard. Topographical features are beautifully illustrated, with Adam's Peak prominently shown near the center of the island. Adams Brugh, also known as Adam's Bridge or Rama's Bridge, links Mannar Island (off the coast of Sri Lanka) with Rameswaram Island (off the coast of India). Small Dutch flags dot the coastal cities, as well as a few interior settlements, to emphasize the Netherlands' recent takeover of the island from the Portuguese. The capital city of Kandy (here, "Candy") is indicated with a drop of LIQUID GOLD and colored red. Other regions and provinces include: Kadawatha ("Cadduwata"); "Caneel Landen" (Cinnamon Lands); Mangul Korale ("Mangul Corla"); Wanni Region ("Landschap Wanny"); and "Alhier syn veel olifanten" ("Here there are many elephants"). "The King of Kandy Rajasingha II (1629-1687), eager to oust the Portuguese from Maritime Sri Lanka, entered into an alliance with the Dutch East India Company and signed a treaty in 1638. According to the terms agreed upon, the Dutch were to expel the Portuguese, in exchange for which they were to be awarded exclusive trade concessions including the lucrative cinnamon trade. After 22 years of fierce struggle the Dutch finally drove the last of the Portuguese forces out of Sri Lanka in 1658 and considered themselves masters of the territorial possessions wrought from the Portuguese. The Company held these territories against the will of the King of Kandy, and administered them until its capitulation to the English in 1796. The Kingdom of Kandy, despite its small size, of its territory, resisted Dutch incursions. It was the Dutch intention to force it into a state of dependence by encircling it in a land-locked territory. The Kingdom of Kandy was the only indigenous state of the Island, and so could concentrate all its power on fighting the Dutch occupation. Consequently they were in almost continuous conflict with each other on territorial issues, such as the ownership of frontier villages, access to sea ports, the right to harvest cinnamon in hinterland woods and gather the arecanuts that grew wild, and the capture of elephants in the open jungle. "By measuring and surveying the coastlines with unprecedented accuracy in 1659, barely a year after the conquest of the Portuguese possessions, the Dutch produced a map of Sri Lanka much different from those that had hitherto been known. The pear-shaped, almost modern outline arrived at by the Dutch surveyors revealed for the first time in the history of the mapping of Sri Lanka a totally new geographical conception of the Island. It not only made a conspicuous contrast with the rigid pentagonal shape devised by Cipriano Sanchez Vilavicencio, but also differentiated itself very clearly from other forms of representations so common in the Luso-Hispanic cartographical tradition of the time. By producing this map, the Dutch Administration inaugurated a new era in mapping and surveying of Sri Lanka in keeping with modern style. "Compared with the rather meager number of maps and plans produced during the 150 years of the Portuguese occupation of Maritime Sri Lanka, the Dutch body of cartographic material on the Island is remarkabl

Striking engraved map of South America with EXCEPTIONALLY FINE ORIGINAL HAND COLOR IN FULL, the individual territories shown in different bold watercolors of yellow, green, and pink, the Tropic of Cancer and Prime Meridian shown in red, the title in an elaborate historiated title cartouche HEIGHTENED WITH LIQUID GOLD, decorated with a fine compass rose pointing north with a GOLD-ENHANCED FLEUR-DE-LIS, surrounded by a border of yellow wash (slight separation at old central fold not affecting the image, slightly toned). Fine copper-engraved map with MAGNIFICENT HAND-COLOR IN FULL and LIQUID GOLD HIGHLIGHTS. With the Advertisement, "Ie rends raison dans ma Nouvelle Introduction ala Geographie des changemens que jay faits sur cete carte" ("I acknowledge the changes that I have made on this map in my New Introduction to the Geographie"). Relief is represented pictorially, and the routes of Magellan, Schouten, Medana, Sarmiento, le Maire, Gallego, Olivier, and Drake are shown. Also depicted are the Equator, the Tropic of Capricorn, and the Prime Meridian. Scattered throughout are interesting notes about individual places. For example, "On dit que du Lac des Xarayes sort un fleuve qui va tomber dans le fleuve des Amazones" ("They say that a river flows out from the Lac des Xarayes and flows into the Amazon River") and "Les Brasiliens dissent que les 2 Rivieres de St. Francois et de R. la Real viennent de Rio della plata et courent long temps ensemble" ("The Brazilians say that two Rivers, the St. Francis and la Real, originate from the Rio de la Plata and flow together for a while"). With a beautiful historiated title carouche flanked by two seated figures, one bearing a laurel wreath on his head and the other a wreath of palms, representing the Old and New Worlds coming together. South America is divided into 8 main regions: Nouvelle Espagne (encompassing the southern tip of Central America); Terre Ferme (encompassing the northern part of the continent); Perou; Pays des Amazones; Bresil; Provinces de Rio de la Plata; Chili; and Terre Magellanique. De l'Isle is widely recognized as the first "scientific" cartographer, incorporating into his maps the most current information (including topography) available based on the latest discoveries. He revolutionized mapmaking, undertaking "a complete reform of a system of geography that had been in force since the second century, and by the time he was twenty five he had very nearly accomplished his purpose" (Brown).

      Amsterdam: F. de Witt, c. 1705. - Single sheet, (21 x 24 ½ inches; 15 ¾ x 22 ¼ inches to the neat line; full margins showing the plate mark). Fine engraved map of the Lyonnais with ORIGINAL HAND COLOR IN FULL, the individual territories shown in different bold watercolors of yellow, green, and pink, the title cartouche surrounded by the coats-of-arms of each of the regions depicted (Lyonnais, Auvergne, Bourbonnais, Beaujolais, Forez, and la Marche) and HEIGHTENED WITH LIQUID GOLD, and the distance scale embellished with three figures, two male and one female, holding what appear to be cartographic tools (slight separation at old central fold not affecting the image, slightly toned). Fine copper-engraved map with EXCEPTIONAL HAND COLOR in full, embellished with LIQUID GOLD, showing the central part of France. The title cartouche is surrounded by the coats-of-arms of each of the regions depicted (Lyonnais, Auvergne, Bourbonnais, Beaujolais, Forez, and la Marche) - although here, the last three have been left blank (seen also in other copies). Important cities are indicated with a dot of LIQUID GOLD, including: Gort, Limoges, Belac, Gueret, Nevers, Moulins, Bourbon lancy, Clermont en Auvergne, Thiers, Flour, le Puy en Velay, Villefranche, Beaujeu, and Rouanne. The Lyonnais is a historical province of France, which gets its name from the city of Lyon. "As a former province or gouvernement of the ancient regime, Lyonnais was bounded on the north by Burgundy; on the east by Dombes, Bresse, and Dauphine; on the south by Languedoc; and on the west by Auvergne and Bourbonnais. The older Lyonnais comprised the territory dependent on Lyon west of the Saone and Rhone rivers as far as the Lyonnais Mountains, east of the Rhone in the immediate vicinity of Lyon, and east of the Saone north of Lyon. It included the country around Vimy (Neufville-sur-Saone), which had the right to vote its own taxes and so was called the Franc-Lyonnais. The province was formed in the 16th century when Beaujolais and Forez were merged with the older Lyonnais" (Encyclopedia Brittanica).

Als Theologe und Hebraist wurde er durch das vorl Werk bekannt, eine Dritte Auflage der erstmals 1685 erschienenen Pionierarbeit der vergleichenden Religionswissenschaft. Darin entwickelt er die These, daß das Judentum nicht die erste Religion der frühesten Menschheitsgeschichte war. Er baute seine Thesen auf Maimonides auf und verwendete dazu die gesamte in seiner Zeit bekannte theologische, wissenschaftliche und übrige Literatur. Dabei ging er erstmals mit den Methoden der Aufklärung vor. Durch seine Wiederentdeckung der Rolle Ägyptens für die biblische Tradition wurde er auch ein Vorreiter der Ägyptologie und löste eine Welle der Ägyptenbegeisterung aus. - "The foundations of the science of comparative religion.

        Regnorum Portugalliae et Algarbiae.

      Amsterdam: Frederick De Wit, c. 1705. - Single sheet, (21 x 24 5/8 inches; 23 3/8 x 19 ½ inches to the neat line; full margins showing the plate mark). Fine engraved map of Portugal with SPLENDID ORIGINAL HAND COLOR IN FULL, the title within a MAGNIFICENT HISTORIATED CARTOUCHE, the individual regions shown in different bold watercolors of pink, green, and yellow and HEIGHTENED WITH LIQUID GOLD, decorated with a fine compass rose pointing north with a GOLD-ENHANCED FLEUR-DE-LIS, surrounded by a border of yellow wash (short marginal tear not affecting image, old central fold, slightly toned). A BRILLIANTLY HAND-COLORED map of Portugal with ELABORATE LIQUID GOLD HIGHLIGHTS, embellished with a SUPERBLY ILLUSTRATED historiated title cartouche. The cartouche shows both allegorical and Native American figures, with a ship in the background, emphasizing Portugal's colonial endeavors. The cartouche also features four coats-of-arms and a dedication to Alexandre Nunes da Costa (1655-1712). Da Costa inherited the title of Agent of Portugal in the United Provinces upon his father's death in 1697, and he remained in that position until he died 1712. The Da Costas were one of the most important Sephardic Jewish families in Amsterdam, who had escaped Portugal during the Inquisition. The Sephardic community in Amsterdam played an extremely important role in Dutch colonialism and transatlantic trade, using family networks to facilitate importing goods, in particular, sugar. Allard was part of a family of map publishers that flourished in Amsterdam during the 17th century, publishing the work of the most illustrious mapmakers of the time, including Blaeu, Jansson, and Visscher. Carel Allard had perfected his style of engraving, and extended his skill beyond maps to engrave portraits of English royalty (in particular William and Mary) and other important subjects.

De Fer's work, though replete with geographical errors, earned a large following because of its considerable decorative appeal. In the late 17th century, De Fer's fame culminated in his appointment as Geographe de le Dauphin, a position that offered him unprecedented access to the most up to date new cartographic information.

        Macedonia. "Macedonia Alexandri Magni Patria

      Greece: Amsterdam Petrum Mortier 1705. Copper engraved map of Macedonia by Pierre Mortier from his "Atlas Antiquus" edited by Joannes Clericus. Original outline colour; verso blank. The map shows the kingdom of Macedonia, birth place of Alexander the Great; part of Thesaly and Epirus and an unnamed, strangely shaped Kerkyra. Dark impression: generally clean and bright; age toning to edges . Mortier, Pierre 1661 - 1711 Pieter (Pierre) Mortier (1661 - 1711) was a French cartographer, engraver, and print seller active in Amsterdam during the later 17th and early 18th centuries. Pieter Mortier was listed as a member of the booksellers guide on 27 august 1685. Being from French heritage, he had more 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.
