         An Account of Several Late Voyages and Discoveries: I. Sir John Narborough's Voyage to the South Sea... II. Captain J. Tasman's Discoveries on the Coast of the South Terra Incognita. III. Captain J. Wood's Attempt to Discover a North-East Passage to China. IV. F. Marten's Observations made in Greenland, and other Northern Countries. To which are added, a Large Introduction and Supplement, containing short abstracts of other Voyages into those Parts, and Brief Descriptions of them. The Whole Illustrated with Exact Charts, and Curious Figures

      London: Printed for D. Brown without Temple-Bar, J. Round in Exchange-Ally, W. Innysin St. Paul's Church-Yard, and T. Ward in the Temple-Lane, 1711. Small areas of defect and stain with repaired tear to the Tierra del Fuego map, edges of a few plates a little ragged but generally in good if slightly used condition; rear flyleaf partly torn away.. Octavo, folding "Chart of the western and southern oceans", folding chart of Terra del Fuego, folding polar map and 19 engraved plates, some of them views and some natural history images, many of them folding; contemporary unlettered panelled calf. Second and best edition, with the additional chart of the western and southern oceans which did not appear in the earlier edition. This compendium of early voyages includes an early account in English of Tasman's famous voyage of 1642. The book also prints the narrative of Narborough's voyage in the Batchelour through the Strait of Magellan and into the Pacific, which was widely read by later navigators including the survivors of the Wager (part of Anson's fleet), who used this account for their own navigation through the passage.The editor gives a résumé of earlier voyages, including those of De Quiros, Drake and Magellan, and makes a plea for scientific exploration of the globe; lamenting 'that the English nation have not sent with their Navigators, some skilful Painters, Naturalists, and Mechanists, under publick Stipends and Encouragement as the Dutch and French have done...'.It is the Tasman voyage that is of the greatest interest here: one of very few contemporary printed accounts of the fundamental voyage, the book is therefore 'of the greatest importance to an Australian collection, as it contains one of the earliest accounts of Abel Janszoon Tasman's famous voyage of 1642 from Batavia, in which he discovered Tasmania and New Zealand and visited Tonga and Fiji' (Hill) as well as visiting New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. The editor, Tancred Robinson, exclaims of Tasman's voyage: 'tis the Discovery of a new World, not yet known to the English, 'Tis probable by Abel Jansen Tasman's Navigation, that New Guinea, New Carpentaria, and New Holland, are a vast prodigious Island, which he seems to have encompass'd in his Voyage...'. Provenance: Thomas Langton, Teeton, Northamptonshire (old signature on title-page and armorial bookplate).

         MICROGRAPHY: CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS.

      [German, probably Bavaria, mid 18th century]. - Ink drawing in black ink on vellum (Very Good, soft folds ), 31,5 x 21,5 cm (12.4 x 8.5 inches). A hand-drawing of the Crucifixion was made in ink on vellum in techniques of calligraphy, micrography and pointillism in the middle of the 18th Century. - A fine hand-drawing in ink on vellum was made in techniques of calligraphy, micrography and pointillism. It showcases Jesus on the Cross, surrendered by religious text in German Gothic Script and angels holding Arma Christi. An image below represents a woman praying to Jesus in a Chapel. The image is close to the art of Johann Thomas Köppel (1711-1762), active in Bavaria in the mid 18th century (see: Schrift als Bild, Berlin 2011, p. 180, image 22). Micrography - Micrography (from the Greek ‘micrographia,’ meaning small writing) is an art form first developed by Jewish scribes in Egypt and Israel around the 9th Century. Traditionally, Jewish artists were banned from drawing images of living creatures due to the rabbinical interpretation of the Second Commandment which states: "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of anything] that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth." As with traditional Islamic art, Jewish artists were thus relegated to drafting calligraphy and geometric forms. However, rabbinical rulings permitted forms that might optically appear to be of banned subjects to be constructed, as long as they were composed entirely of calligraphy. Artists brilliantly constructed elaborate designs composed entirely of microscopic lines of text. During the Medieval period, the art form flourished in Iberia and Central Europe, regions with strong Jewish artistic patronage. It is important, however, to remember that due to the extreme sophistication and technical difficulty of the medium, micrography never became a popular art form, but was reserved for appreciation in rarefied circles.

         Thesaurus imaginum piscium testaceorum; quales sunt cancri, echini, echinometra, stellae marinae, etc. ut & cochlearum quibus accedunt conchylia denique mineralia.

      Leiden, Pieter vander Aa, 1711. - Folio. Engraved title + engraved author’s portrait + title in red and black with large allegorical vignette + [1]f dedicatory address to the reader with large engraved allegorical headpiece + 15 + [1 blank]p of illustration index with large engraved vignette at beginning and end + 60 numbered engraved plates with over 600 illustrations on rectos + 8p of name indexes in Latin, Ambonese Malay, and Dutch with engraved headpiece on first page. Contemporary marbled calf; spine decorated in gilt with morocco title label; corners scuffed. First Latin edition of the celebrated ‘Cabinet of Rarities of Ambon’ by Georg Eberhard Rumpf (1628-1702), an outstanding German botanist who worked for the Dutch East India Company on the island of Ambon devoting his life to the study of natural history in the Moluccas in the Indian ocean. The beautiful book constitutes the first comprehensive work on South Pacific molluscs, with substantial content on minerals and other specimens of natural history. The exquisite plates show crustacea, including lobsters and crabs, exotic shells, animals, fish, birds, fossils, and minerals. Most of the illustrations were based on drawings by the celebrated Frankfurt artist Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717), now preserved in the archives of the Academy of Sciences at St Petersburg. The engraved title represents the interior of a palatial wunderkammer with connoisseurs appraising specimens on a table being brought to them by servants from large cabinets. The portrait shows the blind author sitting at a table working from touch, feeling shells and plants with his hands surrounded by books and dried exhibits. Rumpf lost his eyesight at the age of 42. The book was first published in Dutch in 1705 as 'Amboinsche Rariteitkamer'. ‘The first great history on tropical marine life, especially shells of the Molucca Islands in the Indian Archipelago. Remarkable for its detailed observations of living animals, habitats, and fisheries’ (Beekman, The Ambonese Curiosity Cabinet (1999); see also Dance, A history of Shell Collecting, pp26-27. Bookplate of Juan del Olmo, a priest in Palencia pasted in blank title margin. Inner blank margin of engraved title discoloured in places, a small wormhole running through outer edges of top margin, occasional traces of usage in corners, otherwise a very good copy with excellent impressions of the plates.

         Nouveau Voyage autour du Monde ... par Guillaume Dampier ... Tôme Premier. [Together with the four companion volumes:] Suite du Voyage autour du Monde, avec un Traité des Vents qui règnent dans toute la Zone Torride ... Tome II. [Plus] Suplément du Voyage autour du Monde ... Tome III. [Plus] Voyage de Guillaume Dampier aux Terres Australes, à la Nouvelle Hollande, &c. fait en 1699 ... Avec le Voyage de Lionel Wafer ... Tome IV. [Plus] Voyage de Guillaume Dampier aux Terres Australes, à la Nouvelle Hollande, &c., où l'on a joint: I. Le Voyage du Capitaine Wood ... II. Le Journal de l'Expedition du Capitaine Sharp ... III. Le Voyage autour du Monde du Capitaine Cowley, & IV. Le Voyage de du Levant de Mr Robert ... Tôme cinquième

      Amsterdam, Chez la Veuve de Paul Marret, 1711 (the first three volumes, the first bearing the additional legend 'Troisième Edition revûe, corrigée & augmentée d'un volume'), 1714 (the fourth volume), and 1712 (the fifth volume). The separately printed 'Traité des Vents' bound with the second volume, the 'Voyages ... à la Baie de Campéche' bound in the third, and the 'Voyage de Mr Wafer' bound in the fourth are dated 1715, 1714 and 1714 respectively. Duodecimo, five volumes, with two in-text illustrations plus 34 plates (26 folding) and 11 folding maps. Contemporary mottled calf; spine gilt in compartments, with burgundy morocco title-labels; edges stained red; covers lightly worn; a few trifling splits and tears (not affecting the text) expertly sealed; slight loss to the blank bottom corner tips of two leaves; paper in Volume 3 slightly toned and foxed; trifling signs of use and age; overall in excellent condition . Paul Marret first issued his two-volume French edition of Dampier's 'Nouveau Voyage' in 1698, a year after the original English edition. It was quickly reprinted with the addition of a third volume, the 'Suplément', and later expanded to include the 'Voyage ... aux Terres Australes', the 'Traité des Vents', and the short accounts of Wood, Sharpe, Cowley and Roberts, translated from 'A Collection of Original Voyages' (1699) edited by William Hacke. The various parts were intended either to be sold separately, or collected in sets bound with uniform titles (as here). This edition was issued posthumously by his widow. See Sabin 18382, but this set appears to have been put together from whichever sheets and plates happened to be at hand in or soon after 1715 (certainly before Marret's 1717 reissue). There is no definitive collation, but, whatever the bibliographical niceties, this remains a scarce and very early collected French edition in attractive original condition.

      1711 1711 - Small 4to. Pp. 70 and one folding engraved portrait. Contemporary vellum, "relazione" in ms on spine. First edition of a biographical study comprising three works of cardinal Maillard de Tournon who was the first papal legate sent to the Imperial court of China, on behalf of the Pope Clement XI. He was born in Turin in 1668 of a noble family of Savoy.Tournon and his party sailed by way of Pondichery, Manila and Canton, arriving at Beijing in December 1705. At first Emperor Kangxi received him kindly, but upon realizing that he had come to abolish the Chinese rites among the native Christians he had Tournon imprisoned at Macau where he later on died, shortly after being informed that he had been created cardinal on August 1, 1707. Maillard de Tournon's mission is considered one of the crucial turning points in the modern history of the Chinese church. The two additional works are: "Verba per . Clementem Papam XI. Habita in consistorio secreto fer. IV.14. Octobris 1711 (pp. 39-47); and Carlo Majelli's "Oratio habita in sacello pontifico V. Kal. Decembris A.D. M.DCC.XI" (pp. 48-70). Cordier BS 913-14.

At least three of the four were reprinted a year later in Dichtkundige cypressenbladen, a collection of elegies on the death of Willem IV.Ad 1: Second copy located of an elegy by the poet Jan Meijer, who wrote several occasional poems under the motto "omnia conando, docilis solertia vincit", including an earlier poem welcoming the Prince into the city of Amsterdam (Onverwagte welkomst-begroetinge aan W.C.H. Friso uit naam der burgeren van Amsterdam). The main poem in the present broadside consists of 7 verses, the first of 6 lines and the rest of 8 lines, and is followed by another 4-line poem at the foot.Ad 2: Second copy located of an elegiac sonnet by the poet Adriaan van Ommering, who openly accused himself of murdering William IV in the line "Ik, . sidder lezer. Ik, ik heb dit feit bedreven" (I, . tremble reader. I, I have committed this deed).Ad 3: Only copy located of an elegy by the physician and later burgomaster of Culemborg, Cornelis Albertus Kloekhof, consistsing of 14 verses of 6 lines.Ad 4: Only copy located of an elegiac sonnet by an anonymous poet, written under the motto "ante monet beatitas".These rare, large broadsides, each printed on a large whole sheet of paper (1mo) are also of typographic interest, in part because they use large initials and types that are not so often used for books aside from occasional heading in large types.All in very good condition, especially considering the ephemeral nature of these publications, with only the ends of a few old folds reinforced. Ad 2 is trimmed close to the outermost edges of the widest line of type at left and right, but they otherwise have generous margins. Rare broadsides on the death of the Prince of Orange.

The main poem in the present broadside consists of 7 verses, the first of 6 lines and the rest of 8 lines, and is followed by another 4-line poem at the foot.Ad 2: Second copy located of an elegiac sonnet by the poet Adriaan van Ommering, who openly accused himself of murdering William IV in the line "Ik, ... sidder lezer. Ik, ik heb dit feit bedreven" (I, ... tremble reader. I, I have committed this deed).Ad 3: Only copy located of an elegy by the physician and later burgomaster of Culemborg, Cornelis Albertus Kloekhof, consistsing of 14 verses of 6 lines.Ad 4: Only copy located of an elegiac sonnet by an anonymous poet, written under the motto "ante monet beatitas".These rare, large broadsides, each printed on a large whole sheet of paper (1mo) are also of typographic interest, in part because they use large initials and types that are not so often used for books aside from occasional heading in large types.All in very good condition, especially considering the ephemeral nature of these publications, with only the ends of a few old folds reinforced. Ad 2 is trimmed close to the outermost edges of the widest line of type at left and right, but they otherwise have generous margins. Rare broadsides on the death of the Prince of Orange.

         Antique Print-JAVA-MADURA-INDONESIA-BALI-Thornton-1711

      - Antique print, titled: 'A Large Draught of the East End of Java and Madura shewing the Streights of Bally.' - Rare early example of this working English Sea Chart of part of Indondesia with Java, Madura, and the Straights of Bali, Indonesia. The chart includes extensive soundings, rhumblines and a compass rose. By the 18th century this area was well-known to mariners, having been extensively explored first by the Portuguese and later by agents of the Dutch East India Company. Copperplate engraving / etching on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Samuel Thornton'. In 1671, the London cartographer John Seller (fl.1664-97) commenced work on The English Pilot , a work that intended to challenge Dutch hegemony in the sea atlas market. Intended to be published in four books covering different regions of the globe, Seller published an uncompleted book on 'Oriental navigation' in 1675. Unable to continue this Herculean endeavour, Seller sold his rights to John Thornton, the official hydrographer to the English East India Company. Thornton took up the project with great fervour, publishing his first editions in 1689. Thornton did not publish his first edition of the Third Book, detailing navigation in the East Indies, until 1703. While Thornton largely based his charts on those of earlier Dutch cartographers, most notably those found in Pieter Goos' Zee-Spiegel and Lucas Janz Waghenaer's Mariner's Mirror, The English Pilot proved to be enormously popular.When John Thornton died in 1708, his brother Samuel took over the business and added to and modified existing charts. All four books were produced in editions until the 1760s. The Third Book ran into twelve editions up to 1761. The project succeeded in giving the English dominance in the sea chart market as the eighteenth-century progressed. Condition: Good, given age. Top edge irregular as issued. Paper with some discolouration at places. A tiny double worm holes left and right of the lower edge of the middle fold, just inside the image area. Original folds as issued. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: BG-B5-39 The overall size is ca. 21.8 x 17.7 inch. The image size is ca. 20.8 x 17 inch. The overall size is ca. 55.3 x 45 cm. The image size is ca. 52.8 x 43.3 cm. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Bishops-Head in St Pauls Church-yard. London: Printed by John Matthews; and Sold by Robert Knaplock, 1711 A very good copy of the first edition in contemporary full-leather panelled calf binding. Thomas Madox, 1666-1727, was a historian and legal antiquary. He held the position of Historiographer Royal from 1708 until his death and was known for his discussion and publication of medieval legal documents. This work is in English but with 2 sections in Latin with separate title pages at the rear: 'Antiquus Dialogus de Scaccario' 1711, and 'Disceptatio Epistolaris de Magno Rotulo Scaccarij..'1711. These sections are credited to Richard FitzNeal (or Fitz-Nigell), 1130-1198. He was Henry II's Treasurer, and wrote the 'Dialogus' at Henry's request - setting out what was involved in Treasury work - an early manual. The binding has raised bands to spine and a handwritten title label in red and black. There is some splitting of the leather at the spine joints - at the top of the front joint and towards the bottom of the rear joint, but the binding is complete and the book is currently sound. The boards are clean with wear and leather loss at the corners. Internally there is the remains of an old ownership stamp to the fpd and a signature across the title page. Contents: initial blank; title page; dedications pp i-xviii; subscriber's list 2pp; text 752 pp - with engraving at p383; title page Antiquus Dialogus...; text 59 pp; title page Disceptio... (with further engraving in text)18 pp; table of contents 5 pp; explanations of abbreviations; blank. The contents are in very good clean condition, with the very occasional light stain or mark. The whole with decorative head and tailpieces and initial capitals. An important work.

Il presente volume fa parte della rarissima opera ‘Ateneo dell’uomo nobile...’ pubblicata a Venezia in cinque Tomi tra il 1704 ed il 1713. In particolare, solo queste due parti, che costituiscono il Tomo III, vennero stampate a Lione. Sempre in Venezia apparvero le parti terza e quarta che completano il terzo Tomo e trattano dell’Impero Ottomano e delle Monarchie e Repubbliche dell’Asia, dell’Africa e dell’America. Il volume qui descritto, pur essendo parte di un corpus più vasto, è da considerarsi in sè completo ed autonomo.
