Antique Map, titled: 'Peninsula Indiae citra Gangem, hoc est Orae Celeberrimae Malabar & Coromandel. Cum adjacente Insula non minus celebratissima Ceylon ( ).' - This map covers the subcontinent roughly from Bombay south to Cape Comorin and includes all of Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Homan offers good detail along the coast naming numerous ports and, where appropriate, appending either an English, French, Danish, Dutch or Portuguese flag to indicate the European power laying claim to that port. The interior is more vague, though many of the major caravan routes are noted, if only speculatively. There are numerous annotations in Latin throughout. Homann also identifies various battle sites associated with the southward progress of the Mughal Empire in 1707. When Homann drew this map, only Madras, Malabar, Ceylon, and the European ports remained independent of Mughal control. A large title cartouche depicting Indian traders and an elephant appears in the lower left quadrant. Engraving / etching with contemporary hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Homann Heirs' after an anonymous artist. Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Homann Heirs'. Following the long period of Dutch domination, the Homann family became the most important map publishers in Germany in the eighteenth century, the business being founded by J.B. Homann in Nuremberg about the year 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin academy of Sciences and in 1715 he was appointed Geographer to the Em … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nuremberg: Iohann Bapt. Homann and Johann Gabriel Dopplemayr, [1707]. This copy of the map predates the 1742 and later editions; it could be as early as 1707 but possibly also 1720. copper etching, one sheet printed in black, coloured by hand. Some rubbing and browning of margins, a few old stab holes, with a few small repairs to tears from the back, overall a very attractive copy. 495 x 574 mm (19-3/8 x 22-3/4 x 24-1/8 inches) plate size plus margins. The map illustrates the solar system by Copernicus with the orbits of the planets and the twelve constellations of the zodiac. The map shows the extent of the knowledge of the solar system and astronomy at the time. The center of the map shows a wonderful representation of the solar system with the sun in the center, the concept which Copernicus had introduced. The lower left corner vignette depicts the eclipse of the sun on May 12, 1706, the others the various theories on the orbits of the planets. Interestingly, this vignette shows California as an island. The upper left vignette shows the then known planets and the Sun; the planets are represented with their diameters to some scale to each other. The upper right corner shows heavenly clouds and solar systems thought to exist elsewhere in the stars. The lower right vignette shows the Goddess of Astronomy, Urania, and below her are three cosmological systems, the Greek, Claudius Ptolemy's, which is somewhat hidden by modern astronomical instruments implying that current astronomers disregard his view. The next one was developed by the Dane ,Tycho Brahe ,where the Ea … [Click Below for Full Description]

In-folio whole leather bound, 5 parts in 1 volume: fx-t., front., t., 4ff., 80 pp., 84 pp., 128 pp., 52 pp., 56 pp., 32 unnumbered ff. Original edition of the translation into Dutch of « Les Délices de l'Espagne et du Portugal », printed same year by the same publisher, Pieter van der Aa (1659 -1733), best known for his work on maps and atlases. Using the same copper engravings as for the original edition, captions into the plates are in French, the international language at the time, while text is in Dutch. If description of the Iberian Peninsula is accurate and full of picturesque details, one must have a particular attention to the engravings. Thanks to the mastery of the printing, the engravings offer remarkable details on many cities, buildings and landscapes of Spain and Portugal, as they appear to the traveller at the turn of the 17th Century. Some precious engravings show scarce scenes: tuna fishing in Cadix, procession of the pilgrims to Compostelle, Basque women going to church, punishment of voluntary cucklods in Seville (!), the way inquisition makes trials, procession of the autodafe, condemned persons by the inquisition burning to the stake, etc. The book is illustrated with a frontispiece, a vignette on title page and dedicatory plate by J. Goerée, a large fold-out plate of Spain and Portugal, a fold-out panorama of Barcelona and 165 large copper engravings in text.

broadside, half-sheet, oblong folio, measuring 11 ½ by 7 ¼ inches, printed on laid, watermarked paper, paper lightly browned, else very good. The earliest known retail liquor license at least for New York City, printed by William Bradford who was the royal printer in New York during the reign of Queen Anne, 1702-1714, and the onlyprinter working in New York during that time. Bradford (1663-1752) was the "pioneering printer of the English middle colonies", and set up the first press in Pennsylvania in 1685, and the first in New York, where he resettled in 1693. (DAB). This broadside was meant to be completed in manuscript. The text makes clear that both men and women were eligible to be licensed tavern keepers, the blanks could either he completed, his, or hers. This is styled "in the reign of ... Anne ... Queen of Great Britain..." which would place it between 1707 when Great Britain was created under the Acts of Union between England and Scotland, and 1714, within the second decade of New York printing. The broadside is interesting because the license was not granted solely as means of taxation, but its broader purpose, as stated within the text, was a means of social control, the suppression of gambling, politically disruptive "meetings" etc. OCLC lists four holdings (NYPL, LCP, AAS, NYHS).

Über den Autor Christian Holtzhammer ist nur wenig bekannt. Auf der ebenfall bei Felßecker gedruckten Erstausgabe von 1668 bezeichnet es sich als "Sanctissimae Theologiae Studiosus" ("Ss. Th. St."). In Gottl. Friedrich Ottos "Lexikon der seit dem funfzehenden Jahrhundert verstorbenen und jetzt lebenden Oberlausizischen Schriftsteller..." (Görlitz 1802) ist er als "Platzmeister oder Leichenbesteller in Görlitz, der in der zweyten Hälfte des 17ten Jahrhunderts lebte" (Bd. 2, S. 165) verzeichnet. In der Tat ist Holzhammer hauptsächlich als Autor mehrerer Leichenreden von Görlitzer Bürgern hervorgetreten. Von den hübschen, teils emblematischen Kupferstichen sind die ersten beiden mit "J. Keyl del." bezeichnet. Keyl (Kulmbach 1649 - Bayreuth 1719) war 1688 nach Nürnberg gezogen, wo er hauptsächlich als Vorzeichner für Kupferstiche arbeitete (Nürnberger Künstlerlexikon, München 2007, Bd. 2, S. 773).

[HETON, Thomas.]
London: Printed by W. B. for John Wyat, 1707. FIRST EDITION. "A work on the advantage to Great Britain of developing its mining industry... In the preface Heton traces the history of mining in Britain, indicating the valuable metals and minerals that have been found: e.g., gold, silver, copper, tin, lead, iron, alum, and copperas. There is a detailed list of mining and metallurgical works referred to by Heton, including authors from Agricola to Webster. Also listed are alchemical titles from Albertus Magnus to Trevisanus. Strongly chemical in content, the books covers the extraction and refinining of metals, the supposed growth of metals in ores, and transmutation, and ends with six chapters on individual metals: gold silver copper, lead, tin and iron. The appendix (pp. 161-171) discusses the famous silver, copper and lead mines recently discovered by Sir Carberry Pryce (d. 1695) which were bought by Sir Humphrey Mackworth (1657-1727), with their progress to date. Very rare" (Neville I, p. 634, illustrating the title-page). Hoover catalogue 419. Kress 5924.

PREMIERE EDITION de ce traité, où les propriétés des sections coniques sont déduites de leur description sur un plan. Cet ouvrage sera pendant un siècle un classique du genre. Le Marquis de l'Hôpital (1661-1704) était un élève de Jean Bernoulli, qui lui apprit le calcul différentiel. Il mourut d'une attaque d'apoplexie, avant d'avoir publié ce traité. C'est le libraire de l'Académie des sciences, Jean Boudot fils, qui décida d'imprimer le manuscrit, sollicités notamment par de jeunes mathématiciens. Ils souhaitaient que ce livre leur permette d'accéder plus facilement au calcul infinitésimal différentiel, développé par le Marquis de L'Hospital dans "L'Analyse des infiniment petits pour l'intelligence des lignes courbes", publié en 1696. La pièce de titre, sur le dos de la reliure, présente une coquille emprunte d'ironie involontaire : le titre "Sections coniques" a été transformé en "Sections Comique[s]" Exemplaire restauré
