      House of Peers,, London: 1710 - Recently elegantly rebound in light brown calf leather with six raised bands on the spine and a gilt stamped dark brown leather label in one compartment. Pages 253 through 284 show a very light dampness stain to the upper portions of the leaves.

The first 31 pages are uniformly tanned from age as are the rear most two leaves. Despite being a quarto measuring 12 1/4" by 7 3/4" this is referred to as the folio edition printed exclusively for the House of Peers as evidenced by the imprimature (license and authorization to print) dated March 17, 1709/1710 from the House of Peers. 327 pages of text with the pages 77 through 84 misnumbered and lacking a page number on the verso side of those pages.

        A Crownbird at the Foot of a Tree, a Terrace in the Background

      - Aert Schouman (1710-1792) A Crownbird at the Foot of a Tree, a Terrace in the Background Black chalk, watercolor, pen and ink framing lines Inscribed verso: illegible inscriptions and A. Schouman Inscribed on mount: G.T. 4 and Kroonduit uit Java and A Schoum Paper size: 11 1/8” x 15 7/8” Framed size: 21 1/2” x 27 1/2” Aert Schouman was a prolific artist who specialized in flower painting and engraving on glass, but was foremost in the art of natural history painting. After training with F. Greenwood and Adriaen van den Burg, he became a master painter at The Hague in 1748, and three years later regent of the art academy. By 1762 he had been appointed principal of the academy and included among his pupils the great Dutch flower painter Jan van Os. Schouman was fortunate to receive royal patronage and completed many works for Prince Willem V at the summer palace of Het Loo, at Apeldoorn. The Prince owned a zoological cabinet and a menagerie which contained mammals, snakes and birds from various parts of the world. Although newly arrived exotic birds were popularly depicted, the favorite bird subjects in the eighteenth century were still live domestic poultry, followed by dead partridges. Among the domestic birds, new breeds were being developed and pyle, hamburg and bantam cocks began to appear. Hens with their chickens were very popular, although the young of most every other species (with the exception of ducklings and goslings) were ignored. Between 1765 and 1768, Schouman was employed in the pictorial recording of the animals at Willem V’s palace at Het Loo. Over one hundred drawings by him can be found in one of the few surviving complete recueils, the Vogel Broeck (the Bird Book). Moreover, Schouman’s depictions of the animals housed in the royal menagerie, along with those of Simon Fokke, formed the core of thirty-four treatises on foreign animals, published between 1767 and 1787 by Arnout Vosmaer. Their illustrations were accompanied by descriptions written by Peter Simon Pallas. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Regnum Neapolis in quo sunt Aprutium Ulterius et Citerius, Comitatus Molisius, Terra Laboris, Capitaniata Principatus Ulterior et Citerior Terra Bariensis et Hidruntina, Basilicata, Calabria Citerior et Ulterior

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1710. A beautiful Dutch map of the Kingdom of Naples This map is from an edition of Frederick De Wit's maps made by Pierre Mortier about 1710. De Wit had brought to Dutch cartography a decorative flare and an appreciation for the Baroque that most of his contemporaries lacked. Here in his map of the Kingdom of Naples, putti hold up a banner of the handsome armorial shields of the various provinces and in the cartouche in the lower right display the arms of Naples. As one expects in a map by De Wit, the engraving is extremely fine (one can see a little eruption over Mount Vesuvius) and the calligraphy is distinct and readable. The Kingdom of Naples was rarely autonomous. At the time this map was issued, it was ruled by Hapsburg Austria, who occupied it during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1703. The Spanish re-conquered the kingdom during the War of the Polish Succession (1733-35). Koeman, Mor 12. Engraving with full, period colour. There is a crease parallel to the centerfold, otherwise, excellent condition.

        Nova totius Americae Tabula

      Amsterdam: Pieter Schenk II, 1710. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE VISSCHER WALL MAP OF THE AMERICAS (c.1710) Wall map on 2 engraved sheets with additional banner title across the top and five engraved views across the bottom Total dimensions 31 3/4" x 37 1/2" Backed on linen with wooden rollers The Visscher family was one of the leading map-publishing dynasties of seventeenth century Amsterdam founded by Claes Jansz. Visscher (1587-1652), and continued by his son Nicolaes (I) (1618-1677) then his grandson Nicolaes II (1649-1702), to his widow Elizabeth (d.1726). From her, many of the map plates passed to Pieter Schenk (II), the publisher of this fine wall-map. It is presumed, based on the delineation of the Americas, particularly the Great Lakes region and the Pacific coast, with the insular form of California, that this map was first published by Nicolaes Visscher (II) circa 1680, and this may indeed may be the two-sheet wall map of the Americas listed in Nicolaes II's catalogue of 1682. The two elaborate cartouches were designed by Philip Tideman and engraved by Willem van Gouwen, both of who worked for Visscher in the 1680s. Geographically the map is comparable with the Jan Mathisz two-sheet map of the Americas, published in 1655, common features being the single open-ended Great Lake and the flat northern coastline for California. The running title is printed from two separate plates pasted outside the upper border, evidently a generic banner, with the word 'Americae' on a paste-on over the original engraving - 'Europae'. Outside the lower border are five harbour views of American settlements, based also on Mathisz. The five views are 'Nombred Dios' (near Panama), 'Panama', 'Nieu Jork', 'S. Salvador' (Watlings Island), 'Caput S. Augustini' (St. Augustine, Florida?). The view of New York, signed by Schenk, is believed to be an unrecorded view of the city, after Visscher (or Blaeu), with the title reflecting the British capture of the city from the Dutch in 1674. This fine example of Visscher's wall map of the Americas has wonderfully oxidised original color and is in excellent condition.. Book.

        [Army Discharge] George Washington (1731-1799) Former U.S. President (1789-1797) and Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army (June 15, 1775 -December 23, 1783)

      Official discharge document signed by George Washington and countersigned by Jonathan Trumbull (1710-1785) who was Governor of Connecticut and the president’s personal aid, dated June 7, 1783. Document measures approx. 8" x 10 ½", archivally framed in a beautiful period style frame, matted and with UV glass measuring 18" x 22" with a lovely hand-colored engraved portrait of Washington by R. Ackermann, dated 1831. A typed note is on the back of the frame stating: On the verso of this document appears the following printed statement: (Head-Quarters, June 7th, 1783, The within certificate shall not avail the bearer as a discharge, until the ratification of the definitive treaty of the peace; previous to which time, and until proclamation thereof shall be made. He is to be considered as being on furlough. George Washington). The war was over but the Continental Congress had failed to raise the funds to pay the soldiers. They decided to put them on furlough which helped prevent a full scale revolt. The Government did allow the men to keep army issued weapons, uniforms and equipment but many had to sell them just to survive just as they sold their pension promises to speculators..
