Geringius Eric, 1707-1747. SÖDERMANLAND, SWEDEN: CHARTA ÖFVER SÖDERMANLAND. Author: Eric GERINGIUS (1707 - 1747). Place and Year: Stockholm, Kongliga Lantmäteri Contoiret 1743. Technique: Coloured copper engraving with original colour, 48 x 56 cm./ Altkolorierter Kupferstich, 48 x 56 cm Seltene altkolorierte Karte zeigt die Provinz Södermanland in Schweden. Gut erhalten. Detailed map with original colour and title in Swedish shows Södermanland, a historical province or landskap on the south eastern coast of Sweden. It was made in 1743 by a Swedish engraver Eric Geringius (1707 - 1747). Geringius studied theology in Uppsala, Sweden, from 1725, when he also learned the art of copper engraving by J. van der Aveelen. From 1780 he lived in Stockolm, where he worked as engraver and illustrator. The map was published separetely by Kongliga Lantmäteri Contoiret (Royal Institute of Surveyors). The institute started publishing separately issued maps of Sweden in 1739 with a goal to map the country in uniform maps. The first map was the grand "Charta öfwer Mälaren" by Jacob Nordencreutz. The maps Upland, Västmanland, Södermanland, Nerike, Skåne and a map of Sweden were issued in the 1740s and early 1750s. The next map - map of Medelpad was not published until 1769. It was followed by the series of maps in the next 25 years, the last one being harta öfver Heinola Höfdingedöme in 1793. Many parts of the country were not covered. The maps were never sold bound in an atlas since the project was never finished. ORIGINAL

[BUFFON, George Louis Leclerc, comte de].
1707. Condition: Etat correct. Les 41 plaques de singes et de singes gravées sur cuivre sont présentes. Georges-Louis Leclerc, comte de Buffon (7 septembre 1707 - 16 avril 1788) était un naturaliste, mathématicien, biologiste, cosmologiste et auteur français. Les points de vue de Buffon ont influencé les deux prochaines générations de naturalistes, dont Jean-Baptiste Lamarck et Charles Darwin. Darwin lui-même, dans sa préface à la 6e édition de l'Origine des espèces, attribue à Aristote l'idée de présélectionner le concept de sélection naturelle et déclare que "le premier auteur qui l'a traité dans un esprit scientifique est Buffon". On se souvient surtout de Buffon pour son excellent travail. Histoire naturelle, générale et particulière (1749-1788: en 36 volumes, 8 volumes supplémentaires publiés après sa mort par Lacépède). Il comprenait tout ce que l'on savait sur le monde naturel jusqu'à cette date. Buffon y examinait les similitudes entre les humains et les grands singes, ainsi que la possibilité d'une ascendance commune. Buffon a débattu de James Burnett, Lord Monboddo sur la question de l'ascendance des primates à l'homme, Monboddo insistant sur la proximité des relations entre l'homme et les singes. On considère que les travaux de Buffon ont grandement influencé l'écologie moderne. Son histoire a été traduite dans de nombreuses langues, ce qui en fait l'auteur scientifique le plus lu du moment.

GAROFALO, Biagio (1677-1762)
Rome: Francesco Gonzaga, 1707. Two parts in one volume, 4to (236 x 171 mm). Roman and Hebrew types. Half-title. xvi, 61, [1]; 131 pp. Two woodcut initials, woodcut device on title. 18th-century Italian vellum over pasteboard. Some pale spotting, first few leaves with marginal dampstain and a few small marginal losses, covers lightly soiled. Item #402992 FIRST EDITION of Garofalo's heterodox study of Greek and Jewish poetry. Garofalo was the first Neapolitan to enter the debate concerning Hebrew poetry at the beginning of the 18th century. "In the first decade of the century he was one of the few who dared to publish what he had learned from the ideas of Biblical criticism proposed by Spinoza and Richard Simon. [In this work] Garofalo dealt first with the explosive issue of the authority of the Hebrew Biblical text contending as had Spinoza and Simon, that it was in need of textual revision. He discussed the custom of all ancient peoples of preserving their laws in poetry. In the second part of the work he explained how Greek poets were expected to use popular fictions to persuade the uneducated to chose right behaviors. Such examples supported the Arcadian claim concerning the value of poetry in reforming the bad habits of people. On the issue of whether Hebrew used rhyme or rhythm Garofalo sided with the Protestant Le Clerc" (Harold Samuel Stone, Vico's Cultural History: The Production and Transmission of Ideas in Naples, New York, 1997, p. 198).

PIETER VAN DER AA (1659-1733) „Les Royaumes d`Espagne et der Portugal" orignal book with 156 gravure Pieter van der Aa (Leiden, 1659 - Leiden, August 1733) was a Dutch publisher best known for preparing maps and atlases, though he also printed pirated editions of foreign bestsellers and illustrated volumes. He also printed many maps that were often out of print, which he reissued. Some of his most popular maps were of the African continent, detailing locations such as Morocco and Madagascar. Many of his later works were printed for the general public in French and Dutch. „Les Royaumes d`Espagne et der Portugal" The book must have 166 engravings. Unfortunately 8 are missing - these are the numbers: 38, 122, 157, 158, 159, 161, 162, 163. The condition of the book is not very good, but almost all engravings are very well preserved. The book can also be restored on request. For further questions and photos I am at your disposal.

Contemporary full calf, the spine, in six compartments, very richly gilt with a label lettered in gilt. A very handsome, well-preserved copy Sabin 5116. Howe B-410. Church 821. JCB I 93. First French Edition (with a new title page) of the first history of the Virginia colony "penned by a native and the best contemporary account of its aboriginal tribes and the life of its early settlers." (Howes) Sabin calls Beverley the "best authority," affording the "most vivid, comprehensive, instructive, and entertaining picture of Virginia at the date of his writing" and quotes Pinkerton: "A work of considerable merit." Beverley's History, one of the most outspoken books of Americanism before the War of Independence, satirized the 'Rapacious and Arbitrary' English governors and objected to the 'heavy Impositions' put upon the American colonies by the English, while celebrating Virginia's history and laws, featuring stories of early Virginia-including the Lost Colony and Pocahontas saving Captain John Smith-which became standard features of American history. Even so, large parts of the History derived from existing sources, though Beverley often gave even the borrowed material his own interpret … [Click Below for Full Description]

This work was quickly recognized as beeing a great advancement over all earlier works.

Leipzig, Friedrich Groschuff 1707. . 4to. VI,84,[4],1248,[40]p. With an engraved allegorical frontispiece with inset portrait of Grotius, and an engraved vignette. Contemp. panelled calf, back with gilt lettered label, sprinkled edges, very light wear to upper joint. A very nice copy. First German edition of Grotius' great De jure belli ac pacis' (1625). This translation is preceded by a preface by Christian Thomasius: Von der Historie des Rechts der Natur bis auf Grotium; von der Wichtigkeit des Grotianischen Werck's, und von dem Nutzen gegenwartiger Ubersetzung'. A second German edition, translated by Johann Niclas Serlin appeared in 1709. That edition was, contrary to the present, heavily annotated. The translator in his preface to the present translation however says that he preferred to translate the book unchanged, because the annotations and comments of other writers often obscure the work rather than clarify it. *Ter Meulen & Diermanse 662.

Engraved title page, with the coat of arms of Virginia, precedes the printed title page.

Contemporary full calf, the spine, in six compartments, very richly gilt with a label lettered in gilt. A very handsome, well-preserved copy Sabin 5116. Howe B-410. Church 821. JCB I 93. First French Edition (with a new title page) of the first history of the Virginia colony "penned by a native and the best contemporary account of its aboriginal tribes and the life of its early settlers." (Howes) Sabin calls Beverley the "best authority," affording the "most vivid, comprehensive, instructive, and entertaining picture of Virginia at the date of his writing" and quotes Pinkerton: "A work of considerable merit." Beverley's History, one of the most outspoken books of Americanism before the War of Independence, satirized the 'Rapacious and Arbitrary' English governors and objected to the 'heavy Impositions' put upon the American colonies by the English, while celebrating Virginia's history and laws, featuring stories of early Virginia-including the Lost Colony and Pocahontas saving Captain John Smith-which became standard features of American history. Even so, large parts of the History derived from existing sources, though Beverley often gave even the borrowed material his own interpret … [Click Below for Full Description]

GAROFALO, Biagio (1677-1762)
Rome: Francesco Gonzaga, 1707. Two parts in one volume, 4to (236 x 171 mm). Roman and Hebrew types. Half-title. xvi, 61, [1]; 131 pp. Two woodcut initials, woodcut device on title. 18th-century Italian vellum over pasteboard. Some pale spotting, first few leaves with marginal dampstain and a few small marginal losses, covers lightly soiled. Item #402992 FIRST EDITION of Garofalo's heterodox study of Greek and Jewish poetry. Garofalo was the first Neapolitan to enter the debate concerning Hebrew poetry at the beginning of the 18th century. "In the first decade of the century he was one of the few who dared to publish what he had learned from the ideas of Biblical criticism proposed by Spinoza and Richard Simon. [In this work] Garofalo dealt first with the explosive issue of the authority of the Hebrew Biblical text contending as had Spinoza and Simon, that it was in need of textual revision. He discussed the custom of all ancient peoples of preserving their laws in poetry. In the second part of the work he explained how Greek poets were expected to use popular fictions to persuade the uneducated to chose right behaviors. Such examples supported the Arcadian claim concerning the value of poetry in reforming the bad habits of people. On the issue of whether Hebrew used rhyme or rhythm Garofalo sided with the Protestant Le Clerc" (Harold Samuel Stone, Vico's Cultural History: The Production and Transmission of Ideas in Naples, New York, 1997, p. 198).

London: printed for Dan. Brown et al, 1707. First edition, 8vo, [8] & unpaginated lexicon in double column; contemporary paneled calf, red morocco label on spine, sprinkled edges; imperceptibly rebacked, with original spine laid down; spine a little scuffed, else a very good, sound copy. "The first English dictionary to make any considerable use of woodcuts; the next development in this respect does not appear until 1727, when Bailey in his Universal Etymological English Dictionary, Volume II, illustrates scientific as well as heraldic terms" (Starnes & Noyes, p. 94). Often passed off as a later edition of Blount because of its similar title and design, this dictionary, while owing a debt to Blount, is in fact a new work by an anonymous author who placed an emphasis on science, which Starnes & Noyes call "the most formative and forward-looking feature" of it. In fact, pages [7-8] are proposals for printing Harris' Lexicon Technicum. Alston V, 89.

HETON, Thomas.
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 book covers the extraction and refining 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. This was the only edition, although the remaining sheets were reissued in 1721.
