      Amsterdam 1705 - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) Watercolor transfer print Paper size: 20” x 14” 31” x 24” framed This spectacular examples of Maria Sibylla Merian’s work are from one of a very few transfer-print watercolor volumes known to exist. Merian herself prepared the volume. After an uncolored print was made, she applied dampened paper to it, pressing by hand to create an image of the print in reverse. In this volume she chose to block out the plate numbers and then add by hand, to some images, numbers and notations. Merian then painstakingly watercolored the dried paper herself, ensuring that the colors were true to the specimens she had seen in South America, and also allowing her style to emerge with greatest clarity. The volume was not meant for sale, and its intended purpose cannot be known with any certainty. Perhaps it was created as a gift for a wealthy and important patron, perhaps Merian meant to keep it herself. What can be stated without a doubt is that these splendid images represent a unique opportunity to acquire original works by an artist who broke barriers as a woman, as a scientist and artist, and whose accomplishments are no less impressive today than they were in her time.

      1705 - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) Hand-colored copperplate engraving from Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium Amsterdam: 1705 Paper size: 20" x 14" Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717) was born into a century of unparalleled change. The Thirty Years’ War, that had ravaged Europe since 1618, ended the year after her birth, and the resulting Treaty of Westphalia brought about new religious freedoms. This new era of Enlightenment allowed science to blossom. It was this atmosphere that such figures such as Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was able to define the laws of gravity and George Buffon (1707-1788) advanced the evolution debate by exploring the theory that all living creatures are derived from one species that has changed over time. The great English poet, Alexander Pope (1688-1744), summed up this spirit of discovery perfectly, writing: “Know then thyself; presume not God to scan. The proper study of mankind is man.” With the new age of discovery, science more than ever before, came to depend upon the artist’s skill in illustration. Maria Sibylla was born in Frankfurt, Germany on April 2, 1647 to the famous publisher, Matthias Merian, and his second wife, Johanna Sibylla Heim. At the age of three her father died, and one year later her mother married the Dutch painter, Jacob Marrell, also a resident of Frankfurt. He provided her with an early artistic training and also introduced her to natural history illustration. Merian not only concentrated upon the beauty of flowers, the majority of her compositions included insects, an unusual consideration for a woman of the 17th century. However, in her publication, Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium, Maria Sibylla Merian was to confess: “From my youth onward I have been concerned with the study of insects. I began with silkworms in my native city, Frankfurt am Main; then I observed the far more beautiful butterflies and moths that developed from other kinds of caterpillars.” Her ability to study certain caterpillars was aided by Marrell’s brother, a silk trader in Frankfurt. While her fascination was most certainly real, for she was to travel with her daughter Dorothea to Surinam in 1699 specifically to record the insect life of the Dutch colony, it also provided her with a modicum of financial security. The excitement of discovery extended beyond the confines of scientists to that of the collector and his cabinet of curiosities. Eager to acquire the latest discoveries, these wealthy collectors employed artists to record their collections. Maria was acquainted with the Amsterdam collectors Nicholas and Jonas Witsen, and Livinus Vincent, the first of whom ensured that she received financial assistance from the city for her perilous journey to Surinam. She undoubtedly completed commissions for them and others.

        Oeuvres Meslees Tome Second

      Jacob Tonson. Hardcover. A large and heavy volume fully bound in leather. The leather at the front is a little abused with loss to the edges, corners and around the top of the hinge. The hinge has split but remains quite firm despite the frayed threads of the binding having been revealed where the bands of the spine, and most of the leather covering it, has been worn away. There are small patches of pest damage mainly to the rear. Faint remnants of pencil notations/prices etc on the pastedown and an owner's stamp marked "Cornwell House". The pages are generally clean with some light foxing creeping into the margins from the outer edges. . Good. 1705.

This third voyage, September 1668 to October 1673, took him to Russia, Persia and Arabia via the Caspian Sea. 'Struys kept no diary, so that by the time his narrative was finally published in 1676, his fanciful imagination had somewhat distorted the reality behind his journey. At sea he experienced typhoons, shipwrecks, hunger and captivity, and he was several times sold as a slave, a misfortune always guaranteed to delight a seventeenth century audience' (Howgego p.999). - Apart from the usual age-browning a nice copy.Tiele 1062; Cf. other editions: Cat.

        Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France, la Floride, La Virginie, Pensilvanie, Caroline, Nouvelle Angleterre et Nouvelle Yorck, l"Isle de Terre Meive, la Louisiane et le Cours de la Riviere de Misisipi

      Paris, 1705. Paris, 1705. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 9.25 x 13.5". This wonderful map of the eastern coast of North America extends from Greenland to the northern coast of Cuba and goes as far west as the Mississippi River. As the map focuses on French holdings in the New World, it privileges the Great Lakes and the surrounding area of Nouvelle France, or Canada. Significant detail is also offered in the Mississippi Valley and the Spanish colony of Florida. Published in 1705, the map comes from a time when British and French claims to America were highly contested. De Fer, as Official Geographer to the King, indicates French control of significant trade areas, such as the Great Lakes, as well as strong relationships with labeled Indian villages. The Atlantic Ocean, labeled as "Mer de Canada," features a compass rose with rhumb lines. A small inset also provides the geographical locations of Quebec, the Mississippi, Havana, and Plaisance. The map is a dark impression in very good condition with no chips or tears. Two small stains in the margin not affecting the image. Nicolas de Fer (1646-1720) was a prolific cartographer, engraver and publisher who took over the family map business from his mother when she retired in 1687. The business flourished and he gained a great reputation in his lifetime and was appointed 'Geographer to the King' in 1690. This map is a must for anyone interested in early Canadian history.

        An Exposition of the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England

      London - R. Chiswell, 1705. London - R. Chiswell, 1705 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An exposition, discussing the Thirty-Nine Articlesof the Church of England, written by Gilbert, Bishop of Sarum. The third edition, corrected. The Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion are the historically defining statements of doctrines of the Church of England with respect to the controversies of the English Reformation. First established in 1563, the articles served to define the doctrine of the Church of England as it related to Calvinist doctrine and Roman Catholic practice. The full name for the articles is commonly abbreviated as the Thirty-Nine Articles. Adherence to the Articles was made a legal requirement by the English Parliament in 1571. They are printed in the Book of Common Prayer and other Anglican prayer books. The Test Act of 1672 made adherence to the Articles a requirement for holding civil office in England (repealed in 1824). With a dedication 'To The King' preceding the preface. With a presentation book plate to front pastedown, dated 1850. Condition: In a full calf binding. Externally, a trifle rubbed with bumping and wear to extremities and boards, with previous owner's blindstamp to front board. Joints held by cords only. Internally, firmly bound.
