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.

[Possibly] Johann Leonhard Frisch (1666-1743)
Johann Leonhard Frisch had a diverse career, working as a singer, an interpreter in the German army, a headmaster of a school in Berlin, and finally artist and publisher. After settling in Berlin, Frisch became a member of the Society of Sciences in 1706, under the recommendation of the German mathematician Gottfried Leibnitz. Frisch was interested in natural history and collected specimens to form his own ?Cabinet of Curiousities.? His drawings of birds from this collection would later become the basis for this publication, which included 252 bird illustrations. This Cockatoo, measuring 25" x 19.75", is vibrantly colored with a rich blue watercolor and gouache background, highlighting the pure white and crimson of this decorative cockatoo. Fine lines detail each of the Cockatoo?s feathers and its decorative headpiece, in a realistic manner, as it is perched on a tree branch.

Perse & Juvénal
Compagnie des Libraires, Paris, 1706. Tarteron Jérôme (1645-1720) ~ Traduction des satyres de Perse et de Juvenal ~ A Paris, par le Compagnie des Libraires, 1706. ~ In-12, 9 feuillets non chiffrés compris le titre et l'épître du traducteur ; 591-(5) pages. Fronstipice gravé à l'eau-forte non signé, pleine basane brune époque, filets et roulette dorés ,dos lisse orné de fleurons et jeux de filets dorés, titre doré sur pièce bordeau. D'après Voltaire, Tarteron a supprimé les obscénités grossières dont il est étrange que Juvenal a parsemé ses satyres. Il ménageait en cela la jeunesse pour laquelle il croyait travailler. Les deux auteurs traduits : Aulus Persius Flaccus est né en 34 après Jésus-Christ ; à Volterra en Étrurie, d'une famille de l'ordre équestre et très riche. Ami fraternel de Lucain, élève et admirateur affectueux du philosophe stoïcien Cornutus, il mena une vie vertueuse et austère, se garda le coeur pur. A tous il inspirait estime et respect ; Thraséas, son parent par alliance, lui donna sa tendresse. Malade, il mourut en pleine jeunesse à vingt-huit ans. Perse n'avait guère bougé d'auprès de sa mère et de ses soeurs, ne les quittant que pour fréquenter l'école des rhéteurs. On peut dire avec certitude qu'il ignora la vie et les hommes. Mais il entendait ses maîtres et ses amis. Il avait vingt ans quand Néron fut empereur. Il n'ignora pas grand chose des turpitudes de la Cour. Aussi son oeuvre contient-elle une part de réelle satire, mais par écho et sans l'accent que l'expérience donne à l'indignation. Toutes sortes d'allusions, d'ironies, de demi-mots font en … [Click Below for Full Description]
