Printed for John Marshall, 1720. Full Leather. Fifth Edition. The fifth edition of this iconic Baptist text. In 1677 this text was first published, being the first formal expression of the Particular Baptists of England, who believed in a form of Calvinism. After the Act of Toleration (1689), the text was publicly endorsed by various English and Scottish Baptists; the Baptist community thereafter developed many churches in the Colonies, eventually forming the Philadelphia Baptist Association in 1707, which adopted this text as their formal expression of their faith. With an early holographic note laid in, describing the publication history and importance of this work. Collates complete; [13], 26-126, [6] pp. Publisher's advertisements at the rear. This copy does contain scattered worming, and some staining to the final page of the publisher's advertisements. The worming is a consistent small hole to the bottom margin, at the footnotes, and also a more significant line of worming (about 2cm long) affecting pp. 80-100.~Fully rebacked in sympathetic Japanese tissue, with an early label reattached. Full calf, with an embossed design on the front board. (ESTC T31179). Very Good binding.

1720. Bellissima incisione della prima metà del Settecento stampata su carta forte di cm. 45x66 di Claudio O. Gallimard parigino Scultore in Roma. Claude Olivier Gallimard nato a Troyes nel 1720 (m. nel 1774) soggiornò e lavorò a Roma fino al 1751. Fu membro dell'Accademia di pittura di Parigi dal 1752. L'incisione ci mostra gli addobbi del Palazzo in occasione della nomina a Cardinale del Duca di York: Enrico Benedetto Stuart nato a Roma nel 1725 a Palazzo Muti (oggi Palazzo Balestra). L'incisione ci mostra l'incontro di James III con suo figlio Henry, dinanzi a Palazzo Muti - Papazzurri. L'episodio avvenne pochi giorni dopo la nomina di Henry a cardinale. Il Palazzo fastosamente addobbato fa da sfondo all'incontro tra Giacomo III e suo figlio tra una folla di spettatori, invitati, inservienti e soldati. La residenza Stuart in Piazza Santi Apostoli appare completamente trasformata per l'evento. Sulla sommità è posto lo stemma di Papa Benedetto XIV affiancato da quello di Giacomo III da un lato e della città di Roma dall'altro. Tutta la facciata è ornata da bassorilievi, statue e marmi preziosi. Fu il quarto e ultimo pretendente "giacobita" (della linea cattolica degli Stuart) al trono di Inghilterra, Scozia, Irlanda, ebbe il titolo di Duca di YORK e, secondo le pretese giacobite, avrebbe dovuto essere chiamato Enrico IX. Figlio minore di Giacomo Edoardo Stuart, figlio di Giacomo II d'Inghilterra e noto come il Vecchio Pretendente, e di Maria Clementina Sobieska, nipote di Giovanni III Sobieski, re di Polonia.

1720. "Veduta della Piazza Navona, finemente eseguita all'acquaforte da un disegno del fiammingo Lievin Cruyl. Cruyl stesso incise il soggetto per la prima volta nel 1666 (Jatta 56), lastra che fu poi ripresa da Matteo Gregorio de Rossi alla fine del XVII secolo. Le vedute di Roma di Cruyl furono poi copiate all'estero, a Leyda, dove fu realizzata una serie inserita nel ""Thesaurus Antiquitatum Romanorum"" opera di G. Graevius dell'inizio del XVIII secolo. Questa veduta, sconosciuta ai repertori, è probabile che derivi proprio dalla lastre di Leyda, alla quale è molto simile. Stilisticamente e per tipo di carta sulla quale è impressa ricorda le vedute edite ad Ausburg dallle tipografie Probst e Wollf. Acquaforte, meravigliosa coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rarissima." Sconosciuta a B. Jatta, Lievin Cruyl e la sua opera Grafica.

Henri Abraham CHATELAIN (1684 - 1743)
1720. Interessante e decorativa tavola con le medaglie dei diversi ordini cavallereschi, dal monumentale Atlas Historique, pubblicato ad Amsterdam tra il 1705 e il 1720. La tavola è la num. 40 del settimo volume. L'atlante, in 7 volumi, è innovativo per la sua epoca perché combina le mappe geografiche con incisioni e informazioni di carattere geografico, storico, etnografico e araldico. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Molto decorativa. "Interesting plate with an illustration of all the medals awarded to the Knights, with descriptive French text, from Chatelain's monumental 7-volume Atlas ""Historique"". In upper right margin: 'Tome 7, No 40'. The atlas was published in seven volumes between 1705 and 1720, with a second edition appearing in 1732. The maps were accompanied by information pertaining to cosmography, geography, history, chronology, genealogy, topography, heraldry, and costumes of the world. The maps in the Atlas Historique were mainly based on those of the French cartographer, Guillaume De L'Isle, but were presented by the Chatelains in an encyclopaedic form. Copper etching, finely hand coloured, in very good condition."

Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726)
Amsterdam: Jean Covens et Corneille Mortier, [1720]. . Large double-folio copper-plate engraved map on laid paper, small hole where folds converge west of Borneo, hand-outlining, 25 x 24 1/4 in. A highly detailed map of Southeast Asia by Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726), the leading French cartographer of the eighteenth century and one of the greatest of all time. He is known as the "father of scientific cartography" because he was the first publisher to use methods of mensuration and triangulation in map preparation. According to Tooley, "his work was highly rated, not only by his own countrymen, but by the world at large." (Maps and Mapmakers, p. 43), and he was certainly "the most prominent figure at the beginning of the century." (Ibid.) Asia was an area of great interest to eighteenth century Europeans, and this map shows a gradual expansion of their geographic knowledge of the region. This map, by Delisle, presents as up-to-date and correct information as was available. Depictions of towns, rivers, political divisions, and some topography are neatly and clearly presented. From West to East the map shows Tartaria at its western extreme, all of India, Southeast Asia, the East Indies, China, Korea, and Japan. The publishers of this edition of the map, Jean Covens and Cornelius Mortier, purchased Delisle's plates after his death, and continued to issue the maps from their press in Amsterdam. They enhanced their issues with the use of hand color, well evidenced in this attractive and interesting historical document.

Pieter VANDER AA (1659 - 1733)
1720. "Carta geografica dell'Italia centrale in epoca romana, secondo le notizie fornite dallo storico Tito Livio. Il territorio è delimitato a nord dal lago di Bracciano, a est dall'area del Sannio, e a sud dall'antica Picentia - odierna Pontecagnano - in Campania. Carta geografica tratta dal "Thesaurus Antiquitatum et Historiarum Italiae, Neapolis, Siciliae Sardiniaae, Corsicae e Melitae", monumentale opera di Georgius Graevius pubblicata nel primo quarto del XVIII secolo. Tra il 1704 e il 1725 sono stampati a Leida i 45 volumi del ""Thesaurus antiquitatum"", generazione complessa, laboriosa, esaltata da alcuni come straordinaria, criticata, invece, da altri, che ne parlarono come di una ""compilation énorme sans choix e sans ordre "". Un progetto che ha riguardato molto i contemporanei, in Italia, ma che ha interessato poco storiografia dopo che, tranne rari casi, ne ha sottolineato il carattere meramente erudito e la sostanziale inutilità. L'opera di Graevius è tuttavia arricchita dalle prezione tavole firmate dall'editore olandese Pieter Vander AA. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione." Rare map, edited by Tipografia del Seminario, showing central Italy in Roman times, based upon the work of Tito Livio. Large allegorical cartouche. Copper engraving, in very good conditions.

Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726)
Amsterdam: Jean Covens et Corneille Mortier, [1720]. Large double-folio copper-plate engraved map on laid paper, small hole where folds converge west of Borneo, hand-outlining, 25 x 24 1/4 in. A highly detailed map of Southeast Asia by Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726), the leading French cartographer of the eighteenth century and one of the greatest of all time. He is known as the "father of scientific cartography" because he was the first publisher to use methods of mensuration and triangulation in map preparation. According to Tooley, "his work was highly rated, not only by his own countrymen, but by the world at large." (Maps and Mapmakers, p. 43), and he was certainly "the most prominent figure at the beginning of the century." (Ibid.) Asia was an area of great interest to eighteenth century Europeans, and this map shows a gradual expansion of their geographic knowledge of the region. This map, by Delisle, presents as up-to-date and correct information as was available. Depictions of towns, rivers, political divisions, and some topography are neatly and clearly presented. From West to East the map shows Tartaria at its western extreme, all of India, Southeast Asia, the East Indies, China, Korea, and Japan. The publishers of this edition of the map, Jean Covens and Cornelius Mortier, purchased Delisle's plates after his death, and continued to issue the maps from their press in Amsterdam. They enhanced their issues with the use of hand color, well evidenced in this attractive and interesting historical document. .

Gerard van KEULEN (1678 - 1727)
1720. Carta geografica e nautica dell'isola tratta dal "De Groote Nieuwe veermerdeen Zee-Atlas...", atlante nautico edito ad Amsterdam circa nel 1718. Figlio del cartografo Johannes van Keulen, Gerard fu incisore e matematico, cartografo ed idrografo della Compagnia delle Indie Orientali. Curò la ristampa delle opere paterne con alcune correzioni ed aggiunte. Incerta è la data di pubblicazione del suo atlante, che comunque, consta di ben 34 edizioni tra il 1680 ed il 1734. Questa carta della Sicilia è stata sicuramente realizzata dopo il 1718, perché è rappresentata la battaglia di Capo Passero tra inglesi e spagnoli, avvenuta proprio in quell'anno. La rappresentazione della Sicilia presenta analogie con quella del Cantelli pubblicata nel 1682, mentre non tiene conto delle correzioni di Delisle. Da idrografo, van Keulen riporta molte informazioni necessarie ai naviganti, segnalando i possibili punti di sbarco. Incisione in rame, bellissima coloritura coeva. Molto rara. "Beautiful and rare nautical chart of Sicily taken from ""De Nieuwe Groote Zee-Atlas veermerdeen ..."" nautical atlas, published in Amsterdam in about 1718. Son of the cartographer Johannes van Keulen, Gerard was an engraver and mathematician, cartographer and hydrographer of the East India Company. Oversaw the reissue of his father's works with some corrections and additions. Uncertain is the date of publication of his atlas, which, however, consists of at least 34 editions between 1680 and 1734.

[c1700]. Engraving with etching on two sheets joined. View of the Kolveniersburgwal, taken from the Bushuissluis looking towards the Amstel river. A key in Dutch and French lists seven places of interest these include among others the 'Bosjes Sluis', the bridge spanning the canal; the impressive Zuiderkerk tower; the Oost-Indisch Huis, or East India Company House; and the tower of the Koveniersdoelen, from whence the canal gained its name. The Kloveniersdoelen ("musketeers' shooting range") was a complex of buildings in Amsterdam which served as headquarters and shooting range for the local schutterij (civic guard). The companies of kloveniers were armed with an early type of musket known as an arquebus, known in Dutch klover, hence the name kloveniers. The print depicts a bustling city with gentlemen and women rubbbing shoulders with street vendors and beggars. To the right of the view a large barge is shown off-loading its wears next to East India House. To the left women are shown unloading crockery for sale in the local market.

1720. Pianta della capitale maltese di Pieter van der Aa, tratta dal suo atlante "La Galérie Agréable du Monde" pubblicato a Leida nel 1729. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. A dynamic bird's-eye view of Valletta, the capital city of Malta, published circa 1720. Seen from the northwest, the city is richly detailed, although likely arranged more geometrically than in reality. Surrounding cities of Senglea and Vittoriosa, as well as Fort Ricasoli, are also shown to the left of the capital. A figured title cartouche in the lower left shows a group of men, one carrying a trunk on his back bearing the title. The surrounding waters are filled with decorative ships, and a French coat of arms is drawn in the upper left corner to indicate France's colonial control of the region. A key in the upper right identifies 46 principal spots in the town. The map is in very good condition with overall toning and no chips or tears. Original uncolored engraving with narrow margins as issued. Published by Pieter Van der Aa, was also parte of the Dapper's travel. Olfert Dapper (c. 1635 - 1689) was a Dutch physician and writer. His work was especially valued then and now for its precise style of engraving, of which this map of Valletta is a beautiful example.

1720. Bellissima incisione raffigurante l'occupazione, avvenuto nel 1707, della città. Con la morte di Carlo II e l'estinzione del ramo Asburgo di Spagna, a questi successe Filippo di Borbone, nipote di Luigi XIV, che assunse il nome di Filippo V. Tale successione fu tuttavia rivendicata dall'imperatore Leopoldo I per il proprio figlio arciduca Carlo, quale erede del primo ramo di Casa d'Austria. Di qui la guerra di successione spagnola che, tra il 1707 e il 1734, vide l'occupazione austriaca di Napoli e l'assunzione al trono di Carlo divenuto VI imperatore. Racchiusa entro una cornice ornamentale riccamente decorata e arricchita da un grande cartiglio raffigurante la carta del Regno di Napoli. Tavola tratta dal "Repraesentatio belli, ob successionem in Regno Hispanico...." edito ad Ausburg da Jeremias Wolff circa nel 1720. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione.

Jacques AYROUARD (Attivo tra il 1730 e il 1750)
1720. "Carta nautica tratta dal raro atlante nautico ""Recueil de plusieurs Plans des Ports et Rades et de quelques Cartes particulières de la Mer Méditerranée, avec les figures des Terres remarquables pour les reconnoissances des Atterrages"", edito tra il 1732 ed ll 1746. Jacques Ayrouard, idrografo francese, risulta attivo tra il 1730 ed il 1750; il raro atlante dei porti del Mediterraneo rimane la sua unica opera. Il lavoro di Ayrouard costituisce uno strumento fondamentale per la navigazione costiera, registrando suoni, ancoraggi e note di pilotaggio su rocce e scogliere e include una serie di profili costieri come ulteriore aiuto alla navigazione. Questo atlante nautico sarebbe stato successivamente disegnato da numerosi idrografi, in particolare William Heather che cita Ayrouard nel suo "New Mediterranean Pilot" del 1802. Ayrouard dedica il lavoro a Jean Frédérick Phélypeaux, conte di Maurepas, segretario della casa reale e ministro della marina in la corte di Luigi XV, che fu prominente nel tentativo di introdurre un approccio più scientifico agli affari navali fino a quando fu esiliato nel 1749 per aver scritto dispregiativi epigrammi sull'amante del re, Madame de Pompadour. Il Conseil de la Marine, per il quale questa opera sembra essere stata prodotta, era stato fondato nel 1720 come depositario centrale di mappe, piani, diari e memorie relative alla navigazione. Dell'idrografo Ayrouard, poco si sa oltre i brevi dettagli che dà sul titolo in cui si definisce ""Royal pilot of the King's Galleys"" e spiega che questi grafici sono stati preparati da lui in viaggi ch … [Click Below for Full Description]

La mappa introduce le informazioni dei viaggi di La Salle, Bienville, d'Iberville e altri esploratori francesi in America. È stata la prima mappa a rappresentare con precisione la foce del Mississippi e la regione dei Grandi Laghi. Per la prima volta vengono mostrati accuratamente anche gli insediamenti inglesi sulla costa orientale. Vengono mostrate le tracce dei galeoni spagnoli e le rotte per L'Avana. Decorative full color example of this decorative map, which is based upon De L'Isle's landmark map of Mexico and Florida, first issued in 1703. The map introduces the information from La Salle, Bienville, d'Iberville and other French explorers in America. It was the first map to accurately portray the mouth of the Mississippi and the Great Lakes region. Also accurately shown for the first time are the English settlements on the east coast. The reports of Iberville are present in the villages in the Lower Mississippi Valley and Texas, where the Spanish were active building missions and presidios. Several Dutch and German cartographers copied De L'Isle's work, but added the rich embellishments present in this map. The tracks of the Spanish Galleons and routes to Havana are shown.
