        Antique Print-ASIA-CHINA-INDONESIA-RUSSIA-INDIA-De Fer-1717

      - Antique print, titled: 'L'Asie Suivant les Nouvelles Decouvertes ( ).' - Interesting and very unusual map of the Asian continent. The map is based primarily on Dutch sources, particularly the outlines of Siberia and the East Indies. However, the most striking feature, which is original to De Fer, is a continuous landbridge extending from northern Korea and eastern Siberia across to America. A note acknowledges Portuguese sources for this new portrayal of the region. Hokkaido (Ieso) appears as a small circular island north of Japan. The northern coastline of Asia is based on Witsen's explorations including Cap Tabin and Cap Glace. The interior is filled with details, including what appears to be a road from Moscow to Peking, and the Great Wall of China. The Caspian Sea is presented in an unusual shape. The coastline of a portion of New Guinea is incorrectly named as Nouvelle Zeelande. Graced with three beautifully designed cartouches. Engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This scarse map originates from: 'Introduction a la geographie - avec unde description historique sur toutes les parties de la terre.', by N. De Fer Geographe de sa Majeste Catholique. A Paris chez le Sieur Danet, gendre de l'auteur, published in 1717, 2nd ed. with several maps first published in this ed.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Nicholas de Fer' after an anonymous artist. Nicholas de Fer (1646-1720) was the youngest son of Parisian print and map seller, Antoine de Fer [d.1673]. He became an official geographer to both French and Spanish kings. Nicholas de Fer was one of the most prolific and influential French geographers and cartographers of the late 17th and early 18th Century. Condition: Good, given age. Neatly restored split of one of the original folds lower left; partly short-cut left margin. Original folds as issued. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling.

Facsimilie of title page loosely inserted. Errata to the rear. Known as 'Tottel's Miscellany'. This was the first printed anthology of English poetry, and was first published in 1557 by Richard Tottel. It originally contained 271 poems, of which 40 were by Henry Howard, 96 by Thomas Wyatt, and 40 by Nicholas Grimald. The second edition was substantially revised and contained 39 more poems. This is the first edition that was published outside of the 16th century. Bound in full green long grain morocco, with modern cloth slipcase. Edges tooled with birds and flowers. Bound by Charles Hering (1763-1815). "After the death of Roger Payne [he] was considered the head of the craft." - Dictionary of Printers and Printing by C. H. Timperley. Armorial bookplate to the front pastedown, with the motto 'Audax et Prudens'. This is attributed to Cornelius Paine (1784-1869) a wealthy West Indies plantation owner and bibliophile.

He donated a comprehensive collection of armorial bindings to the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1940, and also wrote several articles about the subject.

Henry Howard, earl of Surrey (1517-1547) was a poet and soldier. His translation of Virgil's 'Aeneid' is the first documented use of blank verse. Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503-1542) was a poet and ambassador. "No other writer in the early Tudor period is known to have experimented in so many genres, or to have left behind such a substantial and varied body of verse. Although Wyatt is often casually referred to as the first 'Renaissance' poet, it is more accurate to regard his achievement as distinctively Henrician: he assimilated European forms of verse and a Chaucerian poetic vocabulary to the life and milieu of a Henrician courtier and diplomat, generating in the process poems which darkly allude to political events, and which testify to the habitual indirectness of expression on which the life of a courtier and diplomat in this period depended." - ODNB Nicholas Grimald (1519-1562) was a Renaissance poet. His poetry was more prominent in the first edition of Tottel's Miscellany. Only nine of his forty poems were retained for the second edition. Condition: Very good. Spine sunned. Corners bumped. Some rubbing. Offsetting and tidemarks to the endpapers. Scattered spots throughout. Occasional thumbmark.

        An Account of the Religion, Manners, and Learning of the People of Malabar, in Several Letters written from some of the Most Learned Men of that Country to the Danish Missionaries. Translated from the High-Dutch by J. Tho. Phillips

      London, printed for W. Mears, 1717. Duodecimo, [x], 180 pages plus a frontispiece and a small folding map. Early blind-stamped full calf a little worn, but skilfully rebacked in calf (retaining portions of the original spine and the old endpapers); leading edge of the last two leaves of the preface slightly trimmed; paper discoloured and heavily foxed; edges (mainly around the top corner) inkstained, with minimal impact on the margins; small stains to the blank bottom margin of the last 25 leaves; mild signs of use and age; a decent copy. The Malabar region lies along the south-west coast of the Indian peninsula and forms the northern part of present-day Kerala state. The calling card of 'Mr H.A.D.J. Gyles / Royal Navy / HMS Lion' is mounted on the pastedown over an earlier bookplate (now partially defaced). Apparently 18 ships of the Royal Navy have been named Lion, from 1511 to 1975; we have found reference to Gyles serving on HMS Actaeon (so named in 1886, sold in 1923), so that gives a better idea of his period of ownership of this book.

        1717 Vinegar Bible; A Magnificent Copy With the Royal Arms of King George I

      John Baskett 1717 - BIBLE, in English -- The Holy Bible. Oxford: John Baskett, 1717-1716. Elephant Folio (App. 524 x 327 mm). A magnificent copy of a rare edition of the Authorized Version known as the "Vinegar Bible." Fine contemporary binding in black morocco with the royal arms of George I of England. Title and calendar printed in red and black, roman type, text in double columns, 59 lines to the full column, engraved frontispiece by Dubose after J. Thornhill depicting Moses writing the first words of the Book of Genesis, general title with engraved view of Oxford by Gerard Vandergucht, title to New Testament with engraved vignette of the Annunciation (unsigned), 62 engraved text illustrations by Beauvais, Dubose, Dupuis, DuGuernier, Vandergucht and others after Cheron, Laguerre, and Thornhill, engraved initials and tailpieces 'MAGNIFICENT EDITION' (Darlow and Moule), known as the 'Vinegar Bible' from the misprint 'the parable of the vinegar' for 'vinyard' in Luke XX. As the great Bible monopolist, John Baskett was also parodied by contemporary wits who called his huge Bible a 'Baskett-ful of errors'. Nevertheless, Harry Carter, the historian of Oxford printing, states that 'only Baskerville's Bible (Cambridge, 1763) is its equal among English Bibles for beauty of type, impression, and paper' (The History of the Oxford University Press, 1975, I, p. 171).

Errata to the rear. Known as 'Tottel's Miscellany'. This was the first printed anthology of English poetry, and was first published in 1557 by Richard Tottel. It originally contained 271 poems, of which 40 were by Henry Howard, 96 by Thomas Wyatt, and 40 by Nicholas Grimald. The second edition was substantially revised and contained 39 more poems. This is the first edition that was published outside of the 16th century. Bound in full green long grain morocco, with modern cloth slipcase. Edges tooled with birds and flowers. Bound by Charles Hering (1763-1815). "After the death of Roger Payne [he] was considered the head of the craft." - Dictionary of Printers and Printing by C. H. Timperley.

Henry Howard, earl of Surrey (1517¿1547) was a poet and soldier. His translation of Virgil's 'Aeneid' is the first documented use of blank verse. Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503¿1542) was a poet and ambassador. "No other writer in the early Tudor period is known to have experimented in so many genres, or to have left behind such a substantial and varied body of verse. Although Wyatt is often casually referred to as the first ¿Renaissance¿ poet, it is more accurate to regard his achievement as distinctively Henrician: he assimilated European forms of verse and a Chaucerian poetic vocabulary to the life and milieu of a Henrician courtier and diplomat, generating in the process poems which darkly allude to political events, and which testify to the habitual indirectness of expression on which the life of a courtier and diplomat in this period depended." - ODNB Nicholas Grimald (1519-1562) was a Renaissance poet. His poetry was more prominent in the first edition of Tottel's Miscellany. Only nine of his forty poems were retained for the second edition. Condition: Very good. Spine sunned. Corners bumped. Some rubbing. Offsetting and tidemarks to the endpapers. Scattered spots throughout. Occasional thumbmark. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Rare. Conlon 17 : 716 ; Cioranescu 58963 ; Tchemerzine V-394 ; Bourgeois et André, S.H.F. 797. Les mémoires de Retz "sont évidemment une apologie de l'auteur ; ils constituent néanmoins un des documents les plus véridiques que l'on possède sur l'atmosphère de la Fronde." (Mourre 3852). "Mais c'est surtout l'œuvre d'un grand écrivain, au style très personnel, tantôt parlé plutôt qu'écrit, tantôt périodique et savamment construit ; les raccourcis suggestifs y sont fréquents et d'une densité digne de Tacite [.]. Retz s'y montre un psychologue subtil et clairvoyant, grand connaisseur des hommes, de leurs passions et de leurs caractères." (Van Tieghem 3293)."Aucun homme de son temps ne fut plus grand historien, aucun ne comprit comme lui le désordre de la machine royale au temps de la minorité de Louis XIV, aucun ne sut mieux pénétrer et peindre, non seulement les principaux acteurs de la Fronde, mais les hommes politiques de tous les temps.Les Mémoires abondent en maximes qui sont vraies aujourd'hui comme en 1640, maximes aussi profondes, aussi hardies que celles de Machiavel, et plus fortes parce que plus concrètes.[ ] Il est permis de juger, en Retz, l'homme politique avec sévérité. Mazarin, contre lui, représentait l'ordre et la nécessaire paix du royaume. Mais il est impossible de ne pas reconnaître qu'il fut l'un des plus grands écrivains français." (Dict. des lettres françaises, XVIIIe siècle, pp. 881-882).
