WOLFF, Jeremias
Augsburg, Jeremias Wolff, um 1707.. Kupferstichkarte mit Grenzkolorit von M. Seutter nach G. de l'Isle, Bildausschnitt 46,5 x 64 cm, Blattgr. 50 x 66,5 cm. Szantai, Atlas Hungaricus, Wolf 1a. Ulbrich, Allg. Bibliographie des Burgenlandes, VIII/1411; Ritter, Die Landkarten von Jeremias Wolff und Johann Friedrich Probst, in: Cartographica Helvetica 35, p. 22. Seltene Karte des Balkans in Maulwurfshügelmanier, wie meist bei den Karten von J. Wollf nach einer Vorlage von G. de l'Isle, reicht von Oppeln im Norden bis Saloniki im Süden, von Rijeka im Westen bis zur Krim im Osten und zeigt somit neben dem eigentlichen Ungarn auch Kroatien, Slawonien, Bosnien, Serbien, Bulgarien, Nordgriechenland, Teile Albaniens, den europäischen Teil der Türkei, die Walachei, Siebenbürgen, Moldawien, Bessarabien sowie Teile Polens und der Ukraine; unten rechts dekorative Kartusche mit Kartentitel, Autoren- und Verlegerangabe; unten links Kartusche mit vier unterschiedlichen Meilenzeigern und Signatur von Matthäus Seutter ("Seutter hatte lediglich in einer kurzen Spanne zwischen seiner Rückkehr nach Augsburg 1702 und seiner Gründung eines eigenen Verlages um 1707 für Wolff gearbeitet." Ritter, p. 23); die Karten von Jeremias Wolf sind wohl nie als Atlas verkauft worden sondern erschienen als Einblattdrucke, dementsprechend selten sie die Karten heute; nach Wolffs Tod 1723 kamen die Platten an J. F. Probst der sie wiederum um 1760 an T.C. Lotter verkaufte; dieser brachte die Karte titelgleich jedoch mit neuer Kartusche mit seiner Verlegeradresse heraus; mit geglätteter Mittelfalz, am rechten Rand e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Modern box covered in maroon cloth with gilt-tooled title on spine and front section. Title vignette (printer's device?). Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces, and initials. Circular stamp of Dickinson College Library on title page (sold at an auction of items withdrawn from the library). The author, Sébastien Le Prestre Vauban (1633-1707), is considered one of the greatest military engineers of all time. In this treatise he used statistical data to support his argument that all taxes should be repealed and replaced by a standard 10% tax on all agricultural output and on all income from trade and manufactures. After the work was condemned by the royal government, he attempted to reclaim all the copies that he had given away. He was fairly successful--WorldCat shows only one copy dated 1707. In Fair Condition: lacking 2 leaves of plates?; lacking front board; back board is detached; lacking much of leather and gilt from spine; lacking leaf preceding title page; title page is lightly soiled; minor loss at a few lower page corners; light soiling of a few corners. Box is clean and bright.

Haas, Nicolaus.
Leipzig: Verlag Johann Ludewig Bleditsch, 1707. Full Vellum. Good. Folio, 37 by 24 cm. 14 cm thick. Leaves are numbered, not pages, and so the page count is double, plus plates. [25], 328, 134, 94, 179 leaves, with a total of 248 full-page engraved plates. (By sections, Old Testament up to the Prophets: 135 plates, the Prophets, 11 plates, the Apocrypha, 6 plates, the New Testament, 96 plates.) Our copy has considerably more plates than described on OCLC, which gives the plate count as 135. While this number is in accord with the plate count for the first section, we would note that otherwise the leaf count is near identical with our collation. This OCLC summation does suggest there are maps -- there are none in our copy, and we believe that this is a misdescription, as there is no evidence of anything removed from our copy, and we collated every text page for completeness. Vellum heavily worn and darkened, with loss at spine head and the vellum lifted from adjoining boards at top. Tears along lower edge as well. Lacking FFEP and possibly prelim. blanks. The first leaf hanging by a thread, and the hinge is loose, affecting the first few gatherings. Roughness to the early leaves, with a few tears, corner creases and typical heavy wear that afflicts old bibles in Genesis. Three of the early plates have longish closed tears -- several inches each. By the end of Genesis the condition has improved and stabilized, and most of the leaves that follow, throughout the Old and New Testaments, are well-preserved -- they have age toning and some scattered soiling, but the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Brown, Thomas
Briscoe Sam. THE WORKS OF MR. THOMAS BROWN, IN PROSE AND VERSE. 1707 - 1711. First Edition. 'The Works of Mr. Thomas Brown, in Prose and Verse; Serious, Moral, and Comical'. London: Printed for Sam. Briscoe, 1707-1711. Four volumes. Contemporary early 1900s full leather. Gilt titles and red and green labels on full gilt spines. All edges yellow. Bookplates. Ink ownership signatures. Very light rubbing and wear to extremities. Commensurate with age light age-toning, light scattered foxing. Very good. Thomas Brown (1662 -18 June 1704), also known as Tom Brown, was an English translator and writer of satire. Brown was born in Shropshire; he is identified with the Thomas Brown, son of William and Dorothy Brown, who was recorded christened on 1 January 1663 at Newport. His father, a farmer and tanner, died when Thomas was eight years old. He took advantage of the free schooling offered in the county during his day by attending Adams' Grammar School at Newport, afterward continuing his education at Christ Church, Oxford and there meeting the college's dean, Dr Fell. Fell was well known as a disciplinarian, and Brown throughout his life displayed a disdain for restrictions. The legend behind Brown's most recognised work is therefore plausible: it states that Brown got into trouble while at Oxford, and was threatened with expulsion, but that Dr Fell offered to spare Brown if he could translate an epigram from Martial (I, 32, 1): "Non amo te, Sabidi, nec possum dicere quare; Hoc tantum possum dicere, non amo te". According to the story, Brown replied without missing a beat: "I do no … [Click Below for Full Description]

STRABO (Strabo of Amasia).
Amsterdam: Joannes Wolters, 1707. Folio, with a fine engraved title-page, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; well-preserved contemporary vellum, spine elegantly lettered in ink with in gilt ornament between raised bands, covers ornately gilt with complex central emblematic device. The best edition of Strabo's enormous Geography, his kolossourgia or colossal work as he described it himself. The influential Greek geographer who travelled widely, studied under both Aristotelian and Stoic teachers, and spent some decades in Rome, wrote his work early in the first century. Along with the less-known geographers Aratus and Geminus, Strabo promulgated the idea that the torrid zone of the spherical globe was occupied throughout its length by an ocean which divided his continent from another antipodal one in the southern hemisphere. This edition is based on the critical edition by the great classical scholar Casaubon, here further edited with the addition of extensive notes from the best commentators, and with the addition of text that had been omitted from the sources available to Casaubon. 'The annotations of preceding learned men are arranged with skill in their respective places, by the care and diligence of [this edition's editor] Almeloveen' (Dibdin). The "Geographies" of Strabo were 'by far the most important source for ancient geography, a priceless document of the Augustan age, and a compendium of important material derived from lost authors' (OCD). The work represents the classical world's most significant contribution to the science of geography. The first … [Click Below for Full Description]

[COSMAS, INDICOPLEUSTES] MONTFAUCON, Bernard de, editor
Paris: Cl. Rigaud, 1707. Two volumes, large folio; double-column text and translation printed in Greek and Roman letter; four full-page engravings and two woodcuts in the text illustrating the Cosmas section; original French mottled calf, spines panelled in gilt between raised bands, red leather labels; covers rubbed. Collected edition of the Patristic geographers. A rare and important travel book, not much noticed in the literature. The account of his sixth century travels by Cosmas Indicopleustes appears here in print for the first time, accompanied by what have been described as - in all probability - the earliest Christian maps.The great palaeographer Montfaucon's eighteenth-century collection of Greek patristic (early Christian) writings prints for the first time newly discovered works by Athanasius and Eusebius of Caesarea, but is of most interest now for publishing for the first time the Topographia Christiana of the sixth-century traveller Cosmas - known as Indicopleustes, or the Indian Voyager - from the tenth-century manuscript in the Vatican, illustrated with four full-page engravings and several woodcuts in the text.A merchant from Alexandria, around the year 530 Cosmas sailed in the Red Sea and visited Ethiopia. 'He definitely visited Adulis (= Zula), where he found an inscribed marble seat, and described the Persian Gulf, Socotra, India and Ceylon, although there is no proof that he travelled that far. In fact he is quite honest about the places he visited and it can be assumed unlikely that he sailed far beyond the coasts of the Red Sea and South Arabia. His … [Click Below for Full Description]

STRABO (Strabo of Amasia).
Amsterdam: Joannes Wolters, 1707. Two volumes, folio, with a fine engraved title-page, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; some wear affects joints of the first volume (yet binding still firm); a very good copy in contemporary full calf with raised bands and gilt labels. The best edition of Strabo's enormous Geography, his kolossourgia or colossal work as he described it himself. The influential Greek geographer who travelled widely, studied under both Aristotelian and Stoic teachers, and spent some decades in Rome, wrote his work early in the first century. Along with the less-known geographers Aratus and Geminus, Strabo promulgated the idea that the torrid zone of the spherical globe was occupied throughout its length by an ocean which divided his continent from another antipodal one in the southern hemisphere. This edition is based on the critical edition by the great classical scholar Casaubon, here further edited with the addition of extensive notes from the best commentators, and with the addition of text that had been omitted from the sources available to Casaubon. 'The annotations of preceding learned men are arranged with skill in their respective places, by the care and diligence of [this edition's editor] Almeloveen' (Dibdin). The "Geographies" of Strabo were 'by far the most important source for ancient geography, a priceless document of the Augustan age, and a compendium of important material derived from lost authors' (OCD). The work represents the classical world's most significant contribution to the science of geography. The first surviving … [Click Below for Full Description]

Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI.
