        A Chart of the Sea Coasts of New Neder Land, Virginia, New-England, and Penn-Silvania, With the Citty of Philadelphia, from Baston to Cabo Karrik. [with insets]: De Stadt Philadelphia of Penn-Silvania [and] De Bay van Boston

      Amsterdam: c. 1706. Engraved map. Insets of Philadelphia (after Thomas Holme) and Boston Harbor. With wide margins, overall a strong impression. Sheet size: 21 1/4 x 24 3/4 inches. Provenance: Martin P. Snyder. A beautifully printed example of the Donckers-van Keulen chart of the American coast from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to Boston. An exceptionally fine example of a classic Dutch sea chart of the northeast American coast, with insets of Holme's plan of Philadelphia and Boston Harbor. First issued by the well-known Dutch publisher of maritime works, Hendrick Doncker (1626 - 99) in 1688, this striking chart of the northeast coast of North America was one of many Doncker plates acquired by Johannes van Keulen (1654 - 1715), who also took over Doncker's store and made it into a workshop. He reissued this chart with various changes (most notably reworking the cartouche of the original into the inset of Boston Harbor). The chart in its new form appeared around 1706. Hendrick Doncker was one of several Amsterdam chartmakers who played an important role in the brief Dutch ascendancy at sea. Colom, Goos, Lootsman, van Loon and the van Keulens provided the ever improving charts for the ever increasing merchant fleet, and the ever increasing map reading public. As Koeman notes, Doncker appears to have been one of the more assiduous of the chartmakers, making corrections and improvements and replacing obsolete charts with new ones, when the general tendency was to re-print the existing charts as long as possible. His store sold atlases, pilot guides, navigational instruments and individual charts. Very near the end of his life, he sold most of the business to Johannes van Keulen, who had a shop across the street. With his son Gerard (1678-1724), who had an aptitude for the navigational sciences, they gradually established the predominant house for navigational publications, to the extent that all sea atlases were referred to as "Van Keulens" in later years. The inset of Philadelphia is derived from the Dutch edition of Thomas Holme's famous 1683 plan. Its inclusion and the large inset of Boston Bay reminds us that the Dutch were primarily merchants rather than settlers, interested in profit, not Utopias.

        GEDENKWAARDIGE REYS vanden Engelschen Capitain Robert Coverte, Eerst ter Zee; dog by Cambaye een ellendige Shipbreuck geleende hebbende, te Lande door Indostan, of Opper-Indien, Persien, Arabien, Asiatisch Turckyen, &c. met seer beswaarlijke

      Leiden, Pieter Vander Aa, 1706.. omswervingen. Van Anno 1607, tot in 't Jaar 1611. Nu aldereerst uyt 't Engelsch vertaald. Text in Dutch or Flemish, translated from the English, 8vo, 180 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, vignette on title page, folding map of middle east and India, 2 folding engraved plates, printed in black letter, pages (4), 61, (5), bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, gilt rules and gilt lettered morocco label to spine, new endpapers. Occasional light browning to pages, otherwise a very good clean tight copy. There is very little information about Robert Coverte. Although styled on the title page as Captain Robert Covert, it seems he was steward on the 'Ascension' which sailed from Plymouth in 1607. The vessel ran aground going into Surat, the primary port of the Moghul Empire, but the crew escaped ashore in boats. An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in London in 1612 and again in 1614. Howgego, Encyclopedia of Exploration, Volume I, C211; Cox, Volume I, page 266. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

To which is annexed Pomona: or, an Appendix concerning Fruit-Trees, in relation to Cyder... Also Acetaria: Or, a Discourse of Sallets. With Kalendarium Hortense; or the Gard'ners Almanack...

Rebound to style in English panelled calf, red morocco label, double gilt rules to spine and dated at foot. Engraved portrait frontispiece, a little browned. A good clean copy. First edition, published the year of Evelyn's death. Though this is styled as the fourth edition of Sylva (1st ed., 1664), in fact this volume gathers together for the first time all Evelyn's various published treatises arising from the composition of the Elysium Britannicum, an encyclopaedic history of gardens and gardening practices that occupied Evelyn for most of his life. Evelyn's enthusiasm for horticulture in particular, both in his own garden at Sayes Court and in his correspondence and publications, translated continental ideas into England and laid the groundwork for the English landscape garden of the 18th century.

      Amsterdam. Covens & Mortier. [Early 1700s]. Plate mark 38,5 x 49,5 cm. With margins. 52,5 x 63 cm. Passe partout 55 x 65 cm. Original hand coloring. No text at verso. Paper somewhat brittle. Many small tears in the margins with small paper losses.Fold split outside plate mark. Water stain along the top margin. Large margins.. Map of east central Sweden with the capital Stockholm, lake Mälaren and Åland. Nyköping to the south, Gävle to the north and lake Hjälmaren to the west. This map was printed by De Witt in the late 1600s. When De Witt díed in 1706 the entire stock passed on to Pieter Mortier. Covens & Mortier opened shop together in 1711. This map was printed some time after that, using the De Witt plate. Covens & Mortier had their company name engraved in the lower right corner. The De Witt publishing house outrun other map publishers such as Visscher and Danckerts in the late 1600s. Both in terms of quantity and reputation. De Witt published about 400 new maps and numerous reproduction in the second half of the 1600s. The firm aquired the surviving plates from the fire of Blaeus printing house in 1672, which meant the end to the legendary Blaeu company. De Witt also aquired the plates to Braun & Hogenbergs Civitates, the great plate book of the cities of the world of the late 1500s. By the end of the 1600s the dutch era of great cartography was coming to a close. Less original work was performed as the scientific initiative of cartography sliped to France in the early 1700s. The Dutch started to copy french works

        Beskrifning om Rysslands belägenhet/ gräntzor/ landskaper/ städer/ styrelse/ macht/ plägseder och andra beskaffenheter nu för tijden.

      Sthlm, O. Enaeus, 1706. 8:o. (4),92 s. Ljusbrunt marmorerat och lackat hfrbd med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad rygg, rödbrun titeletikett och övre guldsnitt, övriga snitt oskurna (Hedberg). Bra inlaga med endast några spridda rostfläckar. Med Hjalmar Sjögrens exlibris.. Åhlen Censur och tryckfrihet 17.22. Wichsell var sekreterare hos Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie och detta är det enda han skrev. Troligen är boken ett kompilat ur flera utländska arbeten och inte, som Bygdén hävdar, en översättning av den tyske författaren Christian Stieffs arbete "Relation von dem gegenwärtigen Zustande des moscowitischen Reichs" som utkom samma år. Boken blev p.g.a. sina ryssvänliga åsikter förbjuden och censor librorum Gustaf Peringer Lillieblad fick en tillrättavisning för att han gett tillstånd till dess tryckning. Då Sverige och Ryssland vid denna tid låg i krig med varandra, kan man undra av vilken anledning Wichsell skulle utge en skrift i vilken han yttrar sig i stort sett berömmande om arvfienden och dess härskare. Enligt S. E. Brings utredning om saken finns dock inga bärande skäl att anta att författaren skulle varit ett verktyg för ryskt intresse. Snarare torde det vara så, att Wichsell talar sant, när han i sin till Kanslikollegium inlämnade böneskrift skjuter skulden på sitt "förståndz swaghet", och att han inte "sielf förmått märckia" de ställen, mot vilka anmärkningar gjorts. Skriften trycktes i 2000 exemplar vilka tryckeriet avlevererade till Kanslikollegiet. Därefter återstod 30 exemplar som författaren fått i handen och antagligen delat ut bland vänner och bekanta. De exemplar som Kanslikollegiet lyckats lägga beslag på, överlämnades 1713 till Riksarkivet i vars vård förbjudna och konfiskerade böcker brukade anförtros. Så sent som mitten av 1700-talet stod där fortfarande "en stor kista uppfylld med exemplar", enligt den kände samlaren Gahm Persson. "Numera", skriver Bring år 1919, "finnes intet lager af förbjudna skrifter kvar i Riksarkivet. När Wichzells beskrifning öfver Ryssland fått lämna sin trygga hamn eller - antagligen - förstörts, har icke kunnat utrönas. Måhända har ett och annat exemplar af dessa 2000 innan dess förirrat sig ut i rörelsen." Hjalmar Sjögren (1856-1922) var professor i geologi och mineralogi vid Uppsala universitet och senare bosatt på Nynäs gård vid Nynäshamn i Södermanland. 1885-89 var han verksam som geolog hos bröderna Nobel i Baku. Hans exlibris ritades av arkitekten Agi Lindegren och Sjögrens fina matematiska och naturvetenskapliga bibliotek donerades till Ingenjörsvetenskapsakademien 1928. En del av hans övriga böcker kom vid samma tid ut på marknaden

        Voyages du Baron de La Hontan dans l'Amerique Septentrionale ... [Second volume title: Memoires de l'Amerique Septentrionale, ou la suite des Voyages ..] Seconde edition, revue, corrigé, & augmentée

      The Hague: chez Charles Delo, 1706. 2 volumes, 12mo. (6 x 3 5/8 inches). Titles in red and black. Engraved additional title, 26 plates and maps (including 2 large folding maps, 22 other folding plates or maps). Contemporary calf, covers ruled in blind, spine in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco labels in the second and third compartments, the others with repeat overall tooling in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges, expert repairs to head and foot of spines, contained within a single modern dark red morocco-backed cloth box, "spine" gilt. A very fine set of this early edition of a work "written by a man of more than ordinary learning and intelligence" (Sabin). Scarce edition, the second in this form. Lahontan's earlier works (often viewed as a three volume set), are here issued as a two-volume set by the omission of the extraneous voyages to Portugal and Denmark, and a selection was made from the Dialogues. "Lahontan came to America in 1683 & spent the next few years among the Indians & at the frontier posts of the St. Lawrence & the Lakes. Wintering at Michilimackinac in 1688, Lahontan listened to the tales of the coureurs de bois and heard of the famous Rivière Longue, which Charlevoix called pure fiction [and Howes "about as convincing as the legends of the sea- serpent"]. The popularity of his book was rivalled only by Hennepin's. It is of much value as a clear and fearless picture of Canada and the Canadians of his day. His book has a charm which brings one back to it again . . . for spirit and brightness there is nothing in Canadian literature which approaches it, save some of the earlier letters of Lamothe Cadillac" (Larned). Howes L-25; cf. Sabin 38641.
