- Antique print, titled: 'L'Afrique, Dressée Selon les Dernieres Relat. et Suivant les Nouvelles Decouvertes ( ).' - This handsome map is a reduced derivative of De Fer's wall map of Africa (1696-98) with its characteristic thickened west coast. Unusual islands appear in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans including a mythical second island of St. Helena. Monomotapa is shown in the south and the southwest coastline is distorted and there is an incorrect placement and shape of the Cape of Good Hope. In Central Africa is a paragraph concerning the origin of the Nile in Abyssinia, however, the two sub-equatorial Ptolemaic lakes are still shown on the map. The map is graced with a decorative dedication to the Dauphin and a title cartouche featuring lime kilns. The map was first published in 1700. 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.

When he was 12, he became the apprentice of Parisian engraver Louis Spirinx, and made his first map, of the Canal du Midi, at the age of 23. After the death of his father in June 1673, de Fer was so successful at improving the firm that, in 1690, he became the official geographer to Louis, Dauphin of France. With support from the Spanish and French Royal Families, de Fer also became official geographer for Philip V and Louis XIV, the kings of Spain and France, respectively. Because of this, his maps became Bourbon propaganda, endorsing French King Louis XIV.His business flourished, producing town plans, atlases, wall maps, and more than 600 sheet maps.He made maps of places in Europe and North America, including New Spain, places fortified by Vauban, the Low Countries, and the War of the Spanish Succession. In 1698, de Fer published a map of North America, which included a depiction of beavers building dams near Niagara Falls. Seventeen years later, Herman Moll published an identical map as his own, known as the -Beaver map-. De Fer became the official geographer for His Catholic Majesty in 1720.Two of his son … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage du philanthrope Claude Humbert Piarron de Chamousset (1717-1773), dans lequel il examine les moyens pouvant être mis en œuvre pour remédier au problème posé par les enfants trouvés. Parmi les solutions proposées, se trouvait notamment un ambitieux projet de peuplement d'une colonie établie spécialement à cet effet en Lousiane, dont les détails du fonctionnement se trouvent exposés ici. Ce mémoire sur les enfants trouvés est suivi d'un second texte, à pagination continue, consacré aux revenus de l'Hôpital St Jacques. Comme les autres ouvrages de Piarron de Chamousset, cet opuscule était distribué gratuitement. Un titre collectif fut adjoint à ces deux textes, qui ne se trouve pas dans notre exemplaire: soit que le relieur du recueil l'ait écarté, le jugeant superflu, soit que la brochure ait été distribuée telle quelle. 2). Edition Originale. Mémoire justificatif publié par les jésuites pour se défendre de la campagne de diffamation intentée à leur encontre. Ambroise Guis était un négociant né à Marseille en 1613, dont les héritiers avaient accusé les jésuites de Brest de l'avoir spolié à son retour des colonies, à la fin du 17e siècle.

(HYDE, Edward, 3rd Earl of Clarendon)
1717 26 lines on 2pp 4to with integral address leaf: 'For The Reverd. Mr. Hill at Richmond in Surry', signed by S(idney) Godolphin (Henry's brother); a little dusted, with blank corner torn away, folded for posting and retaining seal.The 3rd Earl of Clarendon, 1661-1723, is best remembered (when styled Lord Cornbury) as Governor of New York from 1701-1708: the worst governor ever appointed, corrupt, 'abhorred in both hemispheres', a 'fop and wastrel', a 'degenerate & pervert' who dressed in women's clothes.

The Clarendon family seat was Swallowfield, in Berkshire, the house erected by the 2nd Earl in 1689. By 1717, the 3rd Earl was clearly in dire financial straights. The letter offered here is signed 'H. Godolphin', Henry Godolphin, 1695-1731, the Provost of Eton College and Dean of St. Paul's. The addressee is the Reverend Richard Hill, 1655-1727, who was made a Fellow of Eton in 1714 and lived at Trumpeter's House at the Old Palace Yard, Richmond who was 'much resorted to by the most eminent persons ... the Royal Family showed him very particular regard'. 'After I have returned you abundance of thanks in behalf of myself & my company, for your great kindness to us yesterday at … [Click Below for Full Description]
