        Essai sur le Socinianisme. Ou réflexions sur quelques Articles de la doctrine de M. le Clerc touchant les Sociniens. Et Examen de quelques passages de son Nouveau Testament. La Haye, Veuve Abraham Troyel, 1709

      Troyel, 1709. in - 12, pp.(8), 349, (4), legatura coeva p. pergamena rigida, titolo ms. al dorso. Rara monografia sulle teorie religiose degli eretici senesi Lelio (1525 - 1562) e Fausto Socini (1539 - 1604) che diedero origine alla corrente protestante e radicale degli ''antitrinitari'' o ''unitari'', che da essi appunto prese il nome di ''socianesimo''. Lelio Socini fu conquistato dalle idee di rinnovamento della chiesa sotto forma dell'evangelismo e fu energico assertore delle capacità etiche dell'uomo contro il calvinismo. I suoi rapporti con le personalità direttive della Riforma (Calvino, Melanton, Butze e altri) furono asparemente polemici. Frequentò e partecipò alle controversie religiose della seconda generazione della Riforma, risiedendo in Svizzera, Germania e Polonia, condividendo le posizioni di Ochino, Pucci, Gentili, ecc.). Il nipote Fausto Socini diede risonanza europea alle idee dello zio, seguendone le teorie religiose. Edizione originale dello studio di Mesnard sul ''socianesimo'' (esemplare genuino, con la carta assai arrossata).

        Antiquiores pontificum romanorum denarii nunc primum in lucem editi notisque illustrati.

      Apud Rocchum Bernabejum, 1709. Cm. 27,5, pp. (12), 65 (3). Grande fregio al frontespizio, graziosi capolettera, testatine e finalini tutto in xilografia; 24 incisioni su rame raffiguranti 35 monete papali, e alcune incisioni su legno. Solida ed elegante legatura ottocentesca in mezza pelle con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso. Timbro di possesso in rosso: Diamilla biblioteca. Copia in carta grande. Ottimo stato di conservazione. Il nostro esemplare presenta la preziosa particolarità di essere appartenuto all'autore e di portare le sue note manoscritte. La carta bianca che precede il frontespizio porta la grande scritta: Veteris Romanarum Moneta specimen. Vi sono poi altre note che il Vignoli appose di sua mano verosimilmente in previsione di un'edizione ampliata. Una di queste note porta in calce il suo monogramma: G.V. Una cartella manoscritta ci racconta la storia della vendita dell'esemplare all'asta in cui furono dispersi i volumi di Diamilla (nel 1842) e dove il vecchio proprietario fu ben felice di poter acquistare tale rarità... che Diamilla sicuramente non aveva apprezzato! Il nome dell'autore appare a c. a2r. Cfr. Graesse (VII, 315) che cita solo la ristampa curata dal Fioravanti nel 1734. Scrive il Promis, nel suo "Monete dei romani pontefici avanti il mille" (Torino 1858): Per quanto spetta alle monete battute dai papi prima della seconda metà del secolo xii, già dal finir del secolo xvii alcune ne furono edite dal francese Le Blanc (Traite' historique des monnoyes de France... Amsterdam 1692) nel 1709 un bel seguito dal Vignoli ne venne pubblicato, e che venticinque anni dopo il Fioravanti con molte aggiunte ristampò (Benedetto Fioravante: Antiqui romanorum pontificum denarii a Benedicto IX ad Paulum III, 2 vol., Roma, 1738). Il Muratori nella sua "Dissertazione sulle zecche d'Italia" copiò questo lavoro, accrescendolo. Sembrerebbe quindi che il Bonanni (1696), seguito dal Vignoli (1709), poi dallo Scilla (1715), dal Fioravanti (1734) e infine dal Venuti (1744) fossero i primi libri "interamente" dedicati alla numismatica pontificia. Il Vignoli (Pitigliano, 1663? - Roma, 1733) fu archeologo, numismatico e studioso di antichità. Ecclesiastico, segretario di Filippo Colonna, succedette allo Zaccagni come bibliotecario della Vaticana e intrattenne corrispondenze con alcuni dei più sapienti studiosi della sua epoca. Molto raro.

Ex - libris de la bibliothèque de Jean - Baptiste Huet de Froberville contrecollé sur les contreplats des trois volumes. Une étiquette manuscrite ancienne expliquant les armes de la reliure sur le contreplat du premier volume. Charles Marguetel de Saint - Denis, seigneur de Saint - Évremond (1614 - 1703), fut un moraliste et un critique libertin, sa rigueur et son indépendance critique annonce les philosophes des Lumières, et ce fut peut - être le premier auteur qui fit de la critique un métier. il se préoccupa peu de ses écrits qui circulèrent surtout par manuscrit de son vivant. Cette édition, qui recueille diverses pièces de l'auteur, dont de nombreuses lettres, des critiques, des recherches historiques et des poésies est due à l'abbé de raguenet, qui compléta l'ensemble de maximes de La Rochefoucault (p. 297 - 326 T. IV), d'une pièce de La Fontaine, d'une lettre de Corneille... Le succès littéraire de Saint Evremont engagea les littérateurs à lui attribuer de nombreuses oeuvres, telles ces maximes de La Rochefoucault, sensiblement différents des éditions récentes du même auteur.

        LEX REGIA Det er: Den Souveraine Konge-Lov, sat og given af den Stoormegtigste Höjbaarne Fyrste og Herre Herr Friderich den Tredie (...) og af Hans Maj. underskreven d. 14. Novemb. 1665. Som Den Stoormegtigste Höjbaarne Fyrste og Herre Herr Friderich den Fierde (...) Allernaadigst haver befalet ved offentlig Tryk at vorde publiceret den 4. Septemb. Aar 1709.

      (København) 1709. Stor folio. (55x42 cm). 19 kobberstukne blade (Andreas Reinhardt efter forlæg af Claus a Möinichen). Trykt på meget kraftigt skrivepapir. Ubeskåret i smukt halvbind af rødbrunt kalveskind med titelfelt på forpermen (Anker Kyster). Bibl. Dan. II,739. Dansk Bogkunst 16. En af de 50 smukkeste danske bøger nogen sinde og en boghistorisk milepæl, der fuldstændig svarer til Kongelovens historiske betydning. Det kobberstukne værk gengiver i alle detaljer den mageløse kalligraferede dekoration omkring Peder Schumacher (Griffenfelds) håndskrevne originalversion, der hører til de danske kronregalier. Den trykte version er derudover forsynet med det enestående rytterportræt af lovens giver, Frederik III. Hesten er kalligraferet i en enkelt streg, mens kongens karakterfuld portræt er fremstillet efter en nu forsvunden dødsmaske. ** Den af Frederik Rostgaard besørgede pragtudgave af Kongeloven fra 1665 i 1709 er et mageløst eksempel på en bogudgivelse, der forener et praktisk formål med kongelig repræsentation i international topklasse. Kongeloven, enestående i europæisk retshistorie som eksempel på en fundamentallov under et enevældigt monarki, blev holdt hemmelig fra 1665 på grund af dens bestemmelser om arvegangen i kongehuset. Dens enevoldsbestemmelser indgår i Christian V's Danske Lov af 1683, log hele teksten blev læst op ved Christian V's salving i 1671. Pragtudgaven blev skænket som gave fra Frederik IV til en lang række inden- og udenlandske fyrster samt rangspersoner og dansk-norske institutioner. Gaveeksemplarerne optræder i tre forskellige typer indbindinger: Rødt fløjl, rød maroquin samt brunt kalveskind, alle med rig forgyldt dekoration med Frederik IV's monogram. En restbeholdning af eksemplarer opbevaredes i Geheimearkivet, og dette eksemplar er et af dem, indbundet omrking år 1900 af den tids førende danske bogbinder.

        De re diplomatica libri VI ... Editio secunda ab ipso auctore recognita, emendata & aucta

      Luteciae-Parisiorum: Caroli Robustel, 1709. Large folio, pp. [32], 460, 457*-460*, 461-648, [32]; extra engraved title page by P. Giffart after P. Monier, woodcut device on title page, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, large folding double-page facsimile, 58 full-page engravings in the pagination (15 double-page), plus several smaller woodcut illustrations; bound with: Librorum De re Diplomatica supplemtetum..., Luteciae-Parisiorum: Caroli Robustel, 1704, pp. viii, 116; woodcut device on title page, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, 8 engraved folding facsimiles and 2 full-page engraved facsimiles in the pagination, 6 smaller engravings and 5 woodcuts in the text; contemporary full calf, gilt-decorated spine, new red morocco label; occasional spots and stains throughout, leaves occasionally wrinkled, some neat restoration at the joints and corners; in all a good, sound, and complete copy. First published in 1681, "this work established the study of diplomatics. Written as a refutation of Daniel Papebroch's questioning of the authority of several of the charters in the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the work established new principles for the study of documents, and was well received by, amongst others, Colbert and his successor Le Tellier. At the behest of the latter, Louis XIV, sent Mabillon in 1685 to Italy, where he acquired some 3000 books and manuscripts for the royal collection. The Supplementum of 1704 was written in response to the Jesuit Germon's attempt to disprove Mabillon's theories" (Macclesfield 4590).

Engraved portrait frontispiece and 7 plates each with facing explanatory leaf, Errata at contents page, pages clean with no prior ownership markings. An excellent copy of the Very Scarce first edition. Aaron Hill was 15 when he visited his distant relative Lord Paget, English ambassador to Constantinople. From Turkey he travelled to Greece, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan and Arabia before returning to England three years later in April 1703 with Paget. "Hill's Ottoman Empire was a luxury publication designed to establish its author's social and literary credentials at nearly 350 pages it was an impressive achievement for a 24-year-old. Hill's primary model was the diplomat Sir Paul Rycaut's Present State of the Ottoman Empire of 1668. He borrows many of Rycaut's observations on the political, institutional, and religious history of the Turks yet he is undoubtedly more interested in projecting himself into the picture as an adventure hero Hill dramatizes himself struggling with knife-wielding Arabs, finally stabbing one to death, going underwater pearl-diving, braving storms and dangerous tempests on his sea journey to Samon and, finally, enduring 'A Strange Accident which befel the Author in a Vault among the Mummys' --Gerrard.

        Moriae Encomium: Or, A Panegyrick Upon Folly. . . . Illustrated with Above Fifty Curious Cuts, Design';d and Drawn by Hans Holbeine. To which is prefix';d, Erasmus';s Epistle to Sir Thomas More, and an Account of Hans Holbeine';s Pictures, &c. and where to be seen

      London: J. Woodward, in Threadneedle-Street, 1709. Illustrated English edition of Erasmus's Praise of Folly, a high spot of Renaissance humanism, first published as Moriae Encomium in 1511. Erasmus wrote the essay during a visit to his friend and fellow scholar Thomas More in England: the punning title suggests praise for More as well as Folly. In his opening letter, Erasmus writes: "Trifles may be a Whet to more Serious Thoughts . . . I am apt to believe I have praised Folly in such a Manner as not to have deserved the Name of a Fool for my Pains." The Praise of Folly opens as a parody of a classical encomium, in which the goddess Folly makes the case for herself as mankind's great benefactor: "Venus herself . . . cannot deny, but that, without my Assistance, her Procreative Power would prove weak and ineffectual." She offers a comic catalogue of her conquests, men and women of every age and station who rely on Folly to give meaning to their lives. The satire becomes sharper as Erasmus exposes the abuses of the Catholic church: a critique that eventually secured the work's place on the papal index of banned books. The Praise of Folly ends with the recognition that the genuinely devout will always appear foolish in the eyes of the world: "that Ultimate Happiness which Religion proposes is no other than some Sort of Madness." Erasmus's characteristically long view of human nature, opposed to the extremes of both the Catholic church and Martin Luther's Reformation, made him a model of tolerance and intellectual freedom. The Praise of Folly was his most influential work. "Whenever tyranny or absolute power threatened, 'The Praise of Folly' was re-read and reprinted. It is a sign of what was in the air that Milton found it in every hand at Cambridge in 1628. His inherent scepticism has led people to call Erasmus the father of eighteenth-century rationalism, but his rationalist attitude is that of a perfect common sense, to which tyranny and fanaticism were alike abhorrent" (PMM 43). This English translation by White Kennett is the third in print, following those of Thomas Chaloner in 1549 and John Wilson in 1668; the Kennett translation first appeared under the title Witt Against Wisdom in 1683. This is the first English edition of Praise of Folly to feature Hans Holbein's illustrations. Holbein, who would paint the definitive portrait of Erasmus as Renaissance man, decorated the margins of Erasmus's own copy of Praise of Folly with a series of grotesque pen and ink sketches. The original drawings were reproduced as engravings, serving as illustrations in dozens of editions, including this one. A near-fine copy of a Renaissance classic. Octavo, full nineteenth-century vellum, blind-ruled boards, raised bands, spine lettered in black, marbled endpapers, all edges stained red. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Erasmus, translator's note, verse tributes, "Epistle from Erasmus to Sir Tho. Moor," and catalogue of Holbein's paintings before text. Illustrated with 46 engravings after drawings by Hans Holbein. Armorial bookplates of Edward Bensley Gardner and Harold Wernher, stamp of nineteenth-century collector G.E.V. Elsworthy, ownership signature of A. Pigott. Vellum slightly darkened, joints lightly rubbed.

        The Seventeen Years of Travels of Peter de Cieza through the Mighty Kingdom of Peru, and the Large Provinces of Carthagena and Popayan in South America

      London 1709 - [viii]+244+[12] pages with engraved map, folding plan and four engraved illustrations in text and index. Quarto (9 ¾" x 7½") bound in period calf with modern rebacking, original gilt spine leather laid down and ruled gilt edges to cover. Translated by Joh Stevens. First English Edition. This is a highly regarded chronicle of the conquest and colonization of Peru by Spaniards in the latter part of the 16th century and is lauded for its (at the time) objectivity. Cieza de Leon's Chronica was to appear in 4 sections, this translation being the first part only, all that was available of the history until the latter part of the 19th century. Pedro Cieza de León was a Spanish conquistador and chronicler of Peru. He is known primarily for his history and description of Peru, Crónicas del Perú. He wrote this book in four parts, but only the first was published during his lifetime; the remaining sections were not published until the 19th and 20th centuries. Cieza de León was born to a family of Jewish conversos[1] around 1520 in Llerena, a town in southeastern Extremadura, less than 60 mi from Portugal. Although recently converted from Judaism to Catholicism, the family enjoyed good social standing in the region because of their networks and business dealings. His father, Lope de León, was a shopkeeper in the town, and his mother, Leonor de Cazalla, was a native of Llerena. There is scant documentary evidence of the young Cieza de León’s childhood, and little is known of his early life before his voyage to the Americas. Given the fact that he left home at 13, it is unlikely that Cieza de León received more than a rudimentary education. In 1536, in Córdoba, at 16, Cieza de León was greatly surprised to learn of the discovery of the land of the Incas and so decided to go to Seville to embark on his journey to South America, to see for himself the artifacts of precious metals which had been brought to Spain from Cajamarca. In light of the prohibition of entry into the Spanish colonies for Jews and Jewish converts to Catholicism, Alonso López and Luis de Torres attested for Cieza de León that he was not prohibited. Jewish converso Pedro López de Cazalla, secretary of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro, conqueror of the Incan Empire, was also his first cousin. He returned to Seville, Spain, in 1551 and married a woman named Isabel López de Abreu. Here he published, in 1553, the first part of the chronicles of Peru (Primera Parte). He died the following year, leaving the rest of his work unpublished. His Second Part of Chronicles of Peru, describing the Incas, was translated by Clements Markham and published in 1871 for the Hakluyt Society. In 1909, the fourth part of his chronicle, focusing on the civil wars among the Spanish conquerors was published under the title Third Book of the Peruvian Civil Wars. The third part of Cieza de León's Crónicas del Perú, which examined the discovery and conquest of Peru by the Spaniards, was considered by historians to be lost. The document eventually turned up in a Vatican library, and historian Francesca Cantù published a Spanish version of the text in 1979. Though his works are historical and narrate the events of the Spanish conquest of Peru and the civil wars among the Spaniards, much of their importance lies in his detailed descriptions of geography, ethnography, flora and fauna. He was the first European to describe some native Peruvian animal species and vegetables. Condition: Expertly rebacked, some light rubbing to extremities, foxing, old book plate on front pastedown else very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Rara monografia sulle teorie religiose degli eretici senesi Lelio (1525-1562) e Fausto Socini (1539-1604) che diedero origine alla corrente protestante e radicale degli ''antitrinitari'' o ''unitari'', che da essi appunto prese il nome di ''socianesimo''. Lelio Socini fu conquistato dalle idee di rinnovamento della chiesa sotto forma dell'evangelismo e fu energico assertore delle capacità etiche dell'uomo contro il calvinismo. I suoi rapporti con le personalità direttive della Riforma (Calvino, Melanton, Butze e altri) furono asparemente polemici. Frequentò e partecipò alle controversie religiose della seconda generazione della Riforma, risiedendo in Svizzera, Germania e Polonia, condividendo le posizioni di Ochino, Pucci, Gentili, ecc.). Il nipote Fausto Socini diede risonanza europea alle idee dello zio, seguendone le teorie religiose.

        [one line in Syriac, then] Novum Domini nostri Jesu Christi Testamentum Syriacum, cum versione Latina.

      Lugduni Batavorum: Apud typis Joh: Mulleri, Joh: Fil:; Vid: & fil: Cornelium Boutesteyn, & Samuelem Luchtmans 4to (23.5 cm; 9.125"). [5] ff., 749, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1709 A major work in the history of printing and an important edition of the New Testament in Syriac. Its significance in the history of printing is that this edition of the Syriac New Testament is widely held to be => one of the first two books printed from an early version of stereotype plate developed by Muller during the first decade of the 18th century; there are two states of the title-page, one with the date 1708 and this. Further, as the first edition of the text edited by Johannes Leusden (1624–99) and Carolus Schaaf (1646–1729), two of the leading scholars of Syriac in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, it quickly revealed itself as one scholars could rely upon and it became, in essence, the "textus receptus" of the Syriac N.T. The editors did not see eye to eye on the matter of pointing, and up through Luke 17:26 Leusden's preference (based on the Chaldean system) was used — after which Schaaf began using the system favored by the Walton Polyglott — Leusden having died at that editorial point in the project! The title-page here is printed in red and black, with the title in Syriac at its head and an engraved printer's device below. There are head- and tailpieces and decorative initials in the text, which is printed with the Syriac text in parallel columns with a Latin translation, in double-column format. => A handsome production. Recent qaurter brown calf, old style: raised bands, gilt ruling above and below the bands as accents, gilt center devices in spine compartments. new endpapers, boards with a green and black stone pattern marbled paper. Age-toning, staining from exposure to damp, browning; none of this at distressing levels. => Withal, a good copy of a work important to multiple audiences.

Both van Dale, in "De oraculis veterum ethnicorum dissertationes" (1683), and Fontanelle in his "Histoire des oracles" from 1687, claimed that the ancient oracle answers were given neither by the supernatural agency of demons, nor the Devil, and also that they did not cease with the birth of Jesus

        [MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED, FROM MARYLAND GOVERNOR JOHN SEYMOUR TO ONE OF THE LORDS OF TRADE DISCUSSING ISSUES IN THE COLONY]

      Maryland, 1709. Old fold lines. Bright and clean. Very good plus. An especially noteworthy and very lengthy manuscript letter from John Seymour, governor of the Maryland Colony from 1704 to 1709, to one of the Lords of Trade, detailing the tumult in the colony, namely the conflicting attitudes of Catholics and Protestants, and discussing the developing border dispute between William Penn and Lord Baltimore. Of the Catholics and Protestants, the governor writes in part: "The first by his Lordships favour in lands not only - makes a considerable Interest with many of ye Inhabitants& Delegates, but also gains many Proslites, their Priest being encouraged and supported on all Occasions so that One of them had the Confidense to tamper with One of my Domestiques; and when they checked for these Abuses, the whole party is in a flame, and ready to raise a considerable Contribution for their Defense & Protection & with the extreamest Spite and Malice exclaimed against the severity, as they terme it, of her Majesty's Instructions..." With mention of the Penn-Calvert dispute: "My Lord I should be glad to have her Majesty's Command about running the Northern Lyne of this Province, or to heare my Lord Baltimore and Wm. Penn had adjusted that Difference between themselves...the Borders in both Provinces being hardly restrayned from committing violence on each other...in the mean tyme take the best Care I can to prevent it." Seymour closes the letter with a notably early and rare mention of slaves: "Having in my last to the Lords of Trade sent them a generall account of all Negro Slaves imported into this Province Since the year 1698...the Royall African Company have not imported any..." The Royal African Company lost its monopoly on the slave trade in 1698 and with a growing number of merchants now engaging in the slave trade, there was a marked transition in the economic development and population of Maryland. In 1700 the population of Maryland was around 25,000. By 1750, the population had grown to about 130,000 and was wholly dependent on slavery to fuel its plantation economy. This copy signed as a duplicate, though it appears to have been enclosed with the original when sent to London. A full transcript of the letter is available.

[5] ff., 749, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1709 A major work in the history of printing and an important edition of the New Testament in Syriac. Its significance in the history of printing is that this edition of the Syriac New Testament is widely held to be => one of the first two books printed from an early version of stereotype plate developed by Muller during the first decade of the 18th century; there are two states of the title-page, one with the date 1708 and this. Further, as the first edition of the text edited by Johannes Leusden (1624?-99) and Carolus Schaaf (1646?-1729), two of the leading scholars of Syriac in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, it quickly revealed itself as one scholars could rely upon and it became, in essence, the "textus receptus" of the Syriac N.T. The editors did not see eye to eye on the matter of pointing, and up through Luke 17:26 Leusden's preference (based on the Chaldean system) was used — after which Schaaf began using the system favored by the Walton Polyglott — Leusden having died at that editorial point in the project! The title-page here is printed in red and black, with the title in Syriac at its head and an engraved printer's device below. There are head- and tailpieces and decorative initials in the text, which is printed with the Syriac text in parallel columns with a Latin translation, in double-column format. => A handsome production.

DIPPEL, “Theologe und Philosoph, Mediziner und Chemiker, war der wohl bedeutendste jener Frühaufklärer, die in der Übergangsperiode von der feudalen zur bürgerlichen Gesellschaft die volksreformatorische Tradition weiterführten und sie unter Einbeziehung der von der neueren Philosophie, Gesellschaftslehre und Naturwissenschaft aufgeworfene Probleme zu einer umfassenden Weltanschauung ausbildeten. . DIPPELs religiös gekleidete Argumente dienten den Bestrebungen der Volksopposition noch bis ins 19.Jahrhundert hinein.” (J.Höppner, in: Demokratische Wege S.134f.). Seine Biographie zeigt ihn in fast lebenslangen Auseinandersetzungen mit der staatlichen und kirchlichen Obrigkeit. Sie zwangen ihn immer wieder zur Flucht. 1729 fand er endlich Ruhe in Berleburg, dem „Zufluchtsort aller radikalen Pietisten“. Hier erschien 1747 unter dem gleichen Titel eine dreibändige Sammlung seiner Schriften. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Engraved portrait frontispiece and 7 plates each with facing explanatory leaf.

Ownership inscription of John Lilley ("his book, 1714, 915") to final blank.

Overall a very good copy. First edition. Hill was only fifteen when he was sent by his grandmother to visit his distant relative Lord Paget, English ambassador to Constantinople. From Turkey he travelled to Greece, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan and Arabia before returning to England three years later in April 1703 with Paget. "Hill's Ottoman Empire was a luxury publication designed to establish its author's social and literary credentials … at nearly 350 pages it was an impressive achievement for a 24-year-old. Hill's primary model was the diplomat Sir Paul Rycaut's Present State of the Ottoman Empire of 1668. He borrows many of Rycaut's observations on the political, institutional, and religious history of the Turks … yet he is undoubtedly more interested in projecting himself into the picture as an adventure hero … Hill dramatizes himself struggling with knife-wielding Arabs, finally stabbing one to death, going underwater pearl-diving, braving storms and dangerous tempests on his sea journey to Samon and, finally, enduring 'A Strange Accident which befel the Author in a Vault among the Mummys'" (Gerrard. Aaron Hill: The Muses' Projector, 1685-1750, p.22). Complete copies are genuinely scarce in commerce, with just three seen at auction in the last thirty years.

        VYBORG (VIIPURI), RUSSIA: [Proof State - Carte du Golfe de Wibourg à la Côte de Karèlie].

      - A proof state of an exceptionally rare sea chart of Vyborg Harbour, Russia, prepared for Charles-Pierre Fleurieu’s grand atlas of the Baltic Sea. This extremely rare and highly detailed sea chart depicts Vyborg Bay, part of the Baltic Sea, in the region of Kerelia, Russia. The chart was made by Charles-Pierre Claret de Fleurieu, who was a French naval officer, cabinet minister, cartographer, scientist and a sponsor of Pacific voyages. The walled port city of Vyborg (called Viipuri by the local Finnish population) is located in the upper right quadrant, while the heavily indented bay’s features are captured by remarkably exquisite engraving. The waters feature copious hydrographic information, including bathymetric sounding, the locations of shoals and the delineation of sailing routes (distinguished by dotted lines). The surrounding topography is captured in a vibrant fashion, marking major roads and farms (featuring the names of their proprietors). The chart is certainly the most detailed and accurate map of the Vyborg area made during the Enlightenment era. This particular example of the chart is special in that it is a rare proof state, indicated by the fact that it was printed from the copper plate before the finishing details were added. Most conspicuously, while the chart is adorned with a beautiful view of Vyborg in the upper left (based on Jan van den Aveelen’s view of the town, first published in 1709), the roundel above and to the right, which is meant to contain the title, is left entirely blank (save for the word "Karélia" written in pencil, likely in a contemporary hand), while the other rectangular vignette above the view is also left entirely blank. Elsewhere some toponymic features appear to be missing and as are details with respect to the latitude and longitude in the chart’s borders. This chart was likely printed by the engraver as a test pull during the engraving process. As such publishers’ proofs were usually intentionally destroyed, the preset example is a very rare survivor. The present chart was issued during a period when the Baltic region, and Vyborg in particular, occupied a prominent role in global affairs. The area was a major source of timber and fish, and during the Napoleonic Wars dominance over the region was hotly contested between, on the once hand, France and its ally Sweden, against the allied powers of Britain, Russia and Prussia. Vyborg was an especially prominent port, as it was the gateway to the vast Karelian forests that contained mast timber vital for naval vessels. Vyborg, which had been in Swedish hands from 1293 until being captured by the Russians in 1710, long sat upon the fault line between these two great northern powers. During the Russo-Swedish War of 1788-90, Vyborg Bay was the scene of the largest naval confrontation ever fought in the Baltic. At the Battle of Vyborg Bay (known in Sweden as the Viborgska gatloppet, "the Viborg Gauntlet") on July 4, 1790, massive Russian and Swedish fleets, comprising hundreds of vessels carrying over 50,000 men were engaged in an epic contest around the sandbank labeled in the lower left quadrant of the chart as the ‘Pugkava’ Shoal (Passaloda Shallows). While the Russians tactically won the battle, it proved to be a pyrrhic victory as they were left so weakened that they could no longer continue the war, so suing for peace shortly thereafter. As such the battle is seen by historians as a strategic Swedish victory. During the Napoleonic Wars, Russia gained the upper hand and in 1809 assumed control over all of Finland. Vyborg was integrated into the Grand Duchy of Finland in 1811. The Story of the Production of Fleurieu’s Baltic Charts The circumstances under which the present proof state chart was created are most curious. Enter Charles-Pierre Claret de Fleurieu (1738-1810), who was for many years the driving force behind French naval activities and maritime exploration. A professional naval officer, he received training in hydrography an
