        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

      Amsterdam: Frederick De Wit, c. 1705. - Single sheet, (21 ¼ x 24 ½ inches; 17 ½ x 22 ¾ inches to the neat line; full margins showing the plate mark). 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).

        Gouvernement General du Lyonnois ou sont le Lyonnois, Auvergne, Bourbonnois, Beauiolois, Forez, et la Marche.

      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).

Brunet V, 486; Graesse VI, 464 - John Spencer (1630-1693), Geistlicher und Gelehrter, Master des Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. 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.

Brunet V, 486; Graesse VI, 464 - John Spencer (1630-1693), Geistlicher und Gelehrter, Master des Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. 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. In this work Spencer maintained that many Jewish laws and customs could be linked with those of other Semitic peoples" (Encyclopedia Judaica XV,261)

First and only edition of Van den Burg's revised edition of the first Russian emblem book. The original emblem book was published in the Netherlands in 1705 as Symbola et Emblemata, with captions in Russian, German, Dutch, etc. It was published as part of a deal by Tsar Peter the Great granting the Dutch merchant Jan Tesing the right to print books in Holland for sale in Russia. The emblems were copied from Daniel de la Feuille's Devises et emblems anciennes et modernes and Devises et emblems d'amour, themselves based on the classic emblem books by Camerarius, Heinsius, Saavedra, Cats and Vaenius. The first genuinely Russian edition was published in 1788. This edition by the Dutch poet Hermanus van den Burg (1682-1752), uses the original plates and replaces most of the captions, including the Russian, by new two-line verses in Dutch.Binding heavily rubbed. With a stain and a few small clean tears in the inner margins of 7 leaves, otherwise internally in very good condition.

Amsterdam, Paul Marret, 1705, 8°, (5), 260, pp., Frontispiece, 2 engraved plates, one depicting the coat of arms of dedicatee and the other a cross-section of the coronary vein, Halbldereinband im Stil der Zeit; St.a.Tit.. First Edition - Rare. Vieussen's cardiovascular studies precipitated several new discoveries. He "was among the first to describe the morbid changes in mitral stenosis, the throbbing pulse in aortic insufficiency, and the first correctly to describe the structure of the left ventricle, the course of the coronary vessels and the valve in the coronary vein. He was the first to diagnose thoraic aneurysm during the life of the patient. Vieussens included a classic description of the symptoms of aortic regurgitation in his book" Garrison-Morton. - Raymond Vieussens (ca. 1635-1715), French anatomist and physiologist, after his medicine studies in Montpellier became famous for his book on the nervous system, Neurographia universalis (1684) and he became the physician to several leading citizens and members of the French aristocracy at the Royal Court. In 1688 he was designated as Royal physician, a position probably procured for him by Fagon, the famous and powerful court physician, to whom this work is dedicated. - - Garrison-Morton No.2729; Waller No. 9963, Blake p.474
