Indeed, he was one of the most distinguished English cartographers of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In 1701 he published his first work, A system of geography. Over the years, the work itself as well as individual maps were of influence on other publishers, as they were frequently copied and re-issued. In addition to separate maps, he also p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Verkolje, Nicolaas (1673-1746) after Nattier, Jean Marc (1685-1766)
"Portrait of the engraver Bernard Picart, in an interior. The artist is represented as dressed in a costly robe with a floral motive. He's leaning agains a table on which is a print that he himself made in 1709. This mezzotint is so amazingly detailed that all the inscriptions in it are readable, from those reproduced in the print on the table to the titles of the books in the shelves in the background. On the table also the tools of the engraver. French-born Picart was an extremely refined engraver and his work has been much appreciated by his contemporaries. As demonstrated in this fine portrait he was on the one hand an erudite - among the titles of the books are 'Raphael et la Sveve' and 'COREGE' - and a wealthy artist. Lettered on the bottom: 'NEC VETERA ASPERNERE, NEC INVIDEAS HODIERNIS. / BERNARDUS PICARTUS, Delineator & Sculptor, Stephani Picarti, cui / Romano cognomen, Filius, natus Lutetiae 11 Junii anni MDCLXXIII a J. Marc / Nattier pictus anno MDCCIX & á N. Verkolje l. m. aere expressus Amstelodami MDCCXV'. This is an advanced state; for first state see at the Rijksmuseum cat. RP-P-1911-185. Inscription on the print on the table: 'CORNALINE connue sous le nom de cachet de Michel Ange... ' On the verso collector's mark not in Lugt."."Mezzotint on paper with some margin; plate mark: 332 x 242, total: 346 x 254; in outstanding conditions; Wurzbach 7, Nagler 7"

China, Jesuiten, Mandat von Nanking, Konfuzianische Riten und Tempelschmuck - (Ceva, Tommaso):
Ohne Ort (wohl Deutschland), 1709. Kl-8°. Titel, 82 SS. Marmorierter Umschlag d. Zt. "Streit, Bibliotheca missionum: Chinesische Missionsliteratur, 1700-1950, Nr. 2576. Seltene erste lateinische Ausgabe der um 1704 erstmals auf italienisch veröffentlichten Schrift "Riflessioni sopra la causa della Cina" des Jesuiten und Mathematikers Tommaso Ceva (1648-1736). Behandelt wird die Kontroverse über Zugeständnisse an Chinesen, die zum Christentum übergetreten sind, aber einige alte Riten und Gewohnheiten beibehalten haben. Nach einiger Kritik an der liberalen und pragmatischen Haltung der jesuitischen Missionare entschloss sich Clemens XI mit dem Mandat von Nanking einzufordern, dass konfuzianische Gebräuche nur dann beibehalten werden dürften, wenn sie nicht im Widerspruch zur apostolilschen Lehre stünden. Der Legat Charles de Tournon, der im Jahr 1705 in China ankam, wurde vom Kaiser Kangxi in Peking zunächst freundlich empfangen, im Jahr 1707 dann aber inhaftiert, als er den römischen Wunsch auszuführen androhte, dass die chinesischen Katholiken exkomuniziert würden, wenn sie Praktiken beibehielten, die nun nach strengerer Betrachtung als Aberglauben bewertet wurden. Es ging dabei insbesondere um den Totenkult, das Wahrsagen, Aufstellen von Ahnentafeln und auch den Schmuck von Tempeln (Kirchen), die Ornamente enthielten, bei denen der Verdacht nahelag, es handele sich um Dämonen (eine gute Zusammenfassung gibt Rita Widmaier in der Einleitung zu: G. W. Leibniz. Briefe über China, Hamburg 2017, besonders Seiten 86-90). " "- Etwas gebräunt, wenig fleckig, die letzten fünf Blätte … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antique print, untitled. Double hemisphere from a Dutch Bible published by the Keur family. The map is surrounded by allegorical representations of the continents based on Visscher. The Keur publishing family used Daniel Stoopendaal's world map titled "Werelt Caert" for 70 years in their Bibles. When the plate became worn, Jan van Jagen was commissioned to engrave a new plate. It was updated with California shown correctly as a peninsula, the addition of several Pacific islands and a corrected East Asian coastline. The northwest coast of North America is left completely blank, Australia is partially mapped and there is only a hint of New Zealand. Diagrams of the Copernican and Ptolemaic solar systems rest between the hemispheres. J. v. Jagen's signature at bottom just left of center. Dutch text on verso. Engraving / etching on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Jan van Jagen' after 'Daniel Stoopendaal'. Jan van Jagen (1709 - 1800), Dutch engraver, etcher and cartographer. Daniel Stoopendaal (Dutch) was active in Amsterdam from 1685 to 1713. Both Daniel and Bastiaan Stoopendaal made maps for the so-called Keur Bibles (published from 1666-1756). Most probably both were not related. Bastiaan worked mostly in the circle of Nicolaes Visscher. Daniel engraved topographical prints and maps.

Zweite Ausgabe des ersten englischen Werkes über Optik.- "Molyneux wrote his best-known scientific work, the 'Dioptrica nova', the first treatise on optics published in English. Printed at London in 1692, it was intended as a complete and clear treatise of current optical knowledge independent of any hypothesis concerning the nature of light. Appended to it was Halley's famous theorem for finding the foci of lenses (SS. 295-301). A popular text, it was reprinted in 1709 and provided a scientific base for Berkley's 'Essay Towards a New Theory of Vision'. The book was widely distributed, and Molyneux personally sent copies to Newton, Halley, Locke, Hooke, Boyle, Flamsteed, and Huygens. Its publication ended his friendship with Flamsteed, who according to Molyneux, took umbrage at the lack of prominence accorded his work" (DSB). - Tafeln 39 und 40 doppelt vorhanden. - Papierbedingt stellenweise etwas gebräunt bzw. stockfleckig.

The Zuyder Zee is depicted as a large body of water in Northern Holland, filled by the sea with Amsterdam located on its southwestern shore. There is very good detail inland of cities, towns, roads, forests, hills, rivers and canals. The North Sea (here called the German Sea) is filled with a magnificent title cartouche surmounted by King Neptune, with sea-horses, mer-men, a sea monster, and fishing nets full of fish below. The title also includes a dedication to Elihu Yale Esq. (1649 - 1721), an English merchant and philanthropist. Although Yale was born in Boston, he spent his career in the service of the East India Company, where he made a fortune in India. He made many financial donations to Yale University, which was renamed in his honor in 1718. Yale retired to England during his later years, where he remained until his death in 1721.

Jacque Quillau, Imprimeur, rue Galande, aux Armes de lUniversité. 1709. Avec Approbation et Privilege. First edition. 17 cm. In-12 (8 +4); [iv ; 508 pages ; 10 plates]. Pasted onto the paste-down of the back cover is an additional engraving : dated or 1799. The instruction to the binder for the placement of the plates at the end of the text is on the verso of the last page of text. There is an advertisement for Polinières Les Elemens des Mathematiques (1704) on the verso of the title page. There is an eighteenth century signature on the title page: Courtin, Pretre, possibly that of Vincent-Joseph Courtin, prêtre du Diocèse de Cambrai, ca. 1773, and also a pencil annotation, "Paris, 1923." This copy is bound in mottled calf with a gilt-decorated spine and a recent red leather label. The front cover has been reattached. Despite the sloppy repairs to the spine, front cover and to the left edge of the title page, this copy is still a good working copy, now housed in a hard folding box by Deborah Evetts. Polinière devotes the first half of his book to experiments on the equilibrium of liquids and on the weight and elasticity of air. Next, he explores the directionality of magnetism and an experiment with magnetism for communication. At p. 303, the section on chemistry begins with a preface, followed by a systematic introduction, starting with acids and alkalines. Polinière follows chemistry with a section on anatomy, based on dissection … [Click Below for Full Description]

Verkolje, Nicolaas (1673-1746) after Nattier, Jean Marc (1685-1766)
Portrait of the engraver Bernard Picart, in an interior. The artist is represented as dressed in a costly robe with a floral motive. He's leaning agains a table on which is a print that he himself made in 1709. This mezzotint is so amazingly detailed that all the inscriptions in it are readable, from those reproduced in the print on the table to the titles of the books in the shelves in the background. On the table also the tools of the engraver. French-born Picart was an extremely refined engraver and his work has been much appreciated by his contemporaries. As demonstrated in this fine portrait he was on the one hand an erudite - among the titles of the books are 'Raphael et la Sveve' and 'COREGE' - and a wealthy artist. Lettered on the bottom: 'NEC VETERA ASPERNERE, NEC INVIDEAS HODIERNIS. / BERNARDUS PICARTUS, Delineator & Sculptor, Stephani Picarti, cui / Romano cognomen, Filius, natus Lutetiae 11 Junii anni MDCLXXIII a J. Marc / Nattier pictus anno MDCCIX & á N. Verkolje l. m. aere expressus Amstelodami MDCCXV'. This is an advanced state; for first state see at the Rijksmuseum cat. RP-P-1911-185. Inscription on the print on the table: 'CORNALINE connue sous le nom de cachet de Michel Ange... ' On the verso collector's mark not in Lugt. Mezzotint on paper with some margin; plate mark: 332 x 242, total: 346 x 254; in outstanding conditions; Wurzbach 7, Nagler 7

LESAGE (Alain-René).
A Paris, chez Pierre Ribout 1709.in12, plein maroquin bleu nuit janséniste, tranches dorées (A. Motte), 8ff., 166pp., 1f., mors supérieur très légèrement marqué. Très rare édition originale de cette importante comédie de Lesage en 5 actes en prose. Digne des meilleures pièces de Molière, elle fut représentée pour la première fois à la Comédie Française le 14 février 1709.Le texte est précédé de la "Critique de la Comédie de Turcaret par le Diable Boiteux" présenté sous la forme de deux courts dialogues entre Asmodée et Don Cleofas."Ancien laquais enrichi à force de spéculations louches et d'escroqueries, Turcaret se montre mauvais mari, mauvais frère, coeur sans pitié et amant ridicule, parvenu à l'assurance naïve, personnage grotesque et sot, il évolue dans un monde sans scrupule et corrompu à l'image de la fin du règne de Louis XIV, où les exactions financières et l'insolence du luxe sont odieuses au peuple réduit à la misère. Jamais une comédie de moeurs n'a été traitée avec autant de réalisme satirique. Cette charge contre les financiers est amère mais elle fait naître un rire joyeux qui évoque autant Molière que La Bruyère" (B.N.F. Gallica).Le relieur A. Motte fut d'abord ouvrier chez Trautz, avant de reprendre son atelier en 1879.Bel exemplaire.[Tchemerzine IV 174]

Indeed, he was one of the most distinguished English cartographers of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In 1701 he published his first work, A system of geography. Over the years, the work itself as well as individual maps were of influence on other publishers, as they were frequently copied and re-issued.

Cieza de León, Pedro (1520-1554)
London: unknown, 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
