        Palatinat. Superior sive Bavariae Germanice

      Artist: Seutter Matthias ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1720 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 49 x 57; - description: Map shows Bavaria with the 'Oberpfalz'.; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

      Artist: Chatelain Henri Abraham ca ; issued in: Paris; date: ca1720 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 47 x 62; - description: Map shows Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia with 4 coat of arms; - vita of the artist: Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684 - 1743) was a Huguenot pastor of Parisian origins. He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

      London Printed for A. Churchill J. Knapton R. Knaplock J. Walthoe E. Horne B. Tooke D. Midwinter B. Cowse R. Robinson and T. Ward 1720 - Folio, six volumes or 'Books' bound in two, pp xii + xlii + [2] + 308 + 208 + 285, 120 + 459 + 93 + [1] + 143 + 26 + [25, index], 3 folding maps, 28 double-page maps, 13 single-page maps, 15 folding illustrations, 19 double-page illustrations and 37 single-page illustrations, in total 115 illustrations therefore extra illustrated by 45 in addition to the 70 called for as well as the armorial shields within the text, each 'Book' with drop-head title and own pagination, a few of the additional plates cropped into publishing text but not affecting title, occasional small, light marginal stains and dust-soiling to edges, not affecting text or illustrations, a few small corner creases, otherwise remarkably clean and bright, contemporary reverse calf, blind panelled boards, rebacked retaining original morocco lettering pieces, boards rubbed at extremities with old repairs, otherwise very handsome. John Stow (c. 1525-1605) was a chronicler and antiquary who transcribed manuscripts and inscriptions relating to English history, literature and archaeology; his Survey is his most famous work, with its evocative 'perambulation' of the streets of the Tudor capital, which forms the main framework of the book first published in 1598. In the century following Stow's death, however, the Tudor capital so painstakingly depicted and recorded in Stow's Survey was dramatically transformed. The huge growth of the capital, the devastation wrought by the Great Fire of 1666 and the subsequent rebuilding of the City made an updating of the Survey highly desirable. It was to answer this need that John Strype (1643-1737), the ecclesiastical historian and biographer, published a new, hugely expanded version of Stow's Survey of London in 1720. This is the fifth and most desirable edition and greatly expanded. On the verso of the title-page of Hatton's New View of London (1708), there is an advertisement for Proposals for the Reprinting of Mr. Stow's large Survey of London improv'd; with very great Additions throughout. From John Strype's Preface to this edition, dated 16 April 1720, it may be gleaned that from April 1703 he was already collecting materials for text of this edition. 'It was not however until 14 December 1719 that "proposals" in the Daily Courant asserted that "Above two thirds of this Book is already printed" in time for the book to be first subscribed to by the Society of Antiquaries, on 18 December. On publication it was chosen by the City Fathers for formal presentation to Aldermen on the their election', such was the importance of and high esteem in which the work was held. Additional plates include views of Chelsea, Putney Battersea, Fulham, Mortlake, Chiswick and Isleworth, as well as sweeping views of many of the elegant squares and churches that rose from the ashes of the Great Fire.

      - Antique Map, titled: 'Cursus Fluminis Padi vel Po per Longobardiam ( ).' - A set of 2 separate antique maps of the Po river area by Homann Heirs. These two old maps can be easily joined together to one large map of the river Po area.

Following the long period of Dutch domination, the Homann family became the most important map publishers in Germany in the eighteenth century, the business being founded by J.B. Homann in Nuremberg about the year 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin academy of Sciences and in 1715 he was appointed Geographer to the Emperor. After the founder's death in 1724, the firm was continued under the direction of his son until 1730 and was then bequeathed to his heirs on the condition that it trades under the name of Homann Heirs. The firm remained in being until the next century and had a wide influence on map publishing in Germany. Apart from the atlases the firm published a very large number of individual maps. The Homanns produced a Neuer Atlas in 1714, a Grosser Atlas in 1737, and an Atlas Maior with about 300 maps in 1780. They also issued a special Atlas of Germany with full sized plans of principal cities, school atlases and an Atlas of Silesia in 1750 with 20 maps. Condition: Good, given age.

        Mappemonde a l'usage du Roy Par Guillaume Delisle Premier-Geographe de S.M.

      1720 - 43 x 66.5 cm. Soberbio mapamundi de doble hemisferio con un elaborado cartouche decorativo al centro arriba que muestra el escudo de armas de Francia rodeado por figuras alegóricas representando los cuatro continentes. Australia (Nouvelle Hollande) y Nueva Zelanda, aunque mostradas aquí incompletas, fueron trazadas de acuerdo con los descubrimientos realizados por Abel Tasman en sus dos expediciones, aunque sólo se muestra el trayecto que siguió durante la primera, en 1642. En general el mapa indica los hallazgos geográficos de los dos siglos anteriores, incluyendo: Magallanes (1520), Mendanna (1595), Quiroz (1605), Le Maire (1615), St. Louis (1708), and Antoine (1710); así como sus numerosos itinerarios de viajes de exploración. El noroeste del continente americano, sin embargo, no está cartografiado. Resulta muy interesante la inclusión de la mítica tierra "descubierta" por Juan de Gama, localizada en este mapamundi al este de Japón. A principios del siglo XVII circularon rumores de que un barco español que viajaba de Filipinas a Nueva España había perdido el rumbo y descubierto una tierra hacia el norte rica en oro y plata. En otras versiones de la leyenda, la embarcación era portuguesa y su capitán era Juan de Gama. Desde 1720 hasta 1740, esta tierra dio origen a grandes debates intelectuales, no respecto a su existencia, sino a su localización exacta. Destacados cartógrafos como Delisle expresaron su opinión en sus respectivos mapas sobre la ubicación de este mítico territorio. Guillaume Delisle (1675- 1726) fue sin duda el miembro más destacado en una familia de cartógrafos. Obtuvo una rigurosa formación en astronomía, ciencia, matemáticas y cartografía, misma que, sumada a la información proporcionada por los navegantes del siglo XVIII, le sirvió para crear su propio método de trabajo llamado "cartografía científica", que llegaría a revolucionar el campo de la geografía y la forma en cómo se representaba el mundo. Fue electo miembro de la Academie Royale des Sciences y más adelante nombrado Premier Geographe du Roi, un cargo creado especialmente para él.

About the author: Johann Heinrich Michaelis (1668-1738) was a Protestant theologian and Orientalist at Halle where he was a key figure in Halle's founding generation of scholars in biblical, Oriental, and Slavic studies. A close associate of Francke, Michaelis was a Pietist who, like Francke, was deeply committed to biblical philology and the study of Hebrew (from Wikipedia). * "Founded around 1700 by a group of German Lutherans known as Pietists, the Halle Orphanotrophei (Orphanage) became the institutional headquarters of a universal seminar that still stands largely intact today. It was the base of an educational, charitable, and scientific community and consisted of an elite school for the sons of noblemen; schools for the sons of artisans, soldiers, and preachers; a hospital; an apothecary; a bookshop; a botanical garden; and a cabinet of curiosity containing architectural models, naturalia, and scientific instruments. Yet, its reputation as a Pietist enclave inhabited largely by young people has prevented the organization from being taken seriously as a kind of scientific academy - even though, Kelly Joan Whitmer shows, this is precisely what it was." (For more information, see Kelly Joan Whitmer's "The Halle Orphanage as Scientific Community: Observation, Eclecticism, and Pietism in the Early Enlightenment" (2015) published by The University of Chicago Press).

        Autograph letter signed to an unnamed "Monsieur", thanking him for his good wishes upon his appointment as Contrôleur general of finance.

      Paris: 14 January 1720 - Single folio sheet (317 x 207 mm). Sometime folded, preserved in a custom made chemise and slipcase. Docketed in the upper left hand corner. Lightly spotted, a few small marginal chips; in very good condition. A fine example of the famous speculator John Law's signature, appended to an autograph letter, written in a neat cursive secretarial hand, to an unknown "Monsieur", thanking him for his complimentary letter following Law's appointment to the post of controller-general of finance of France. "Monsieur, je reçois avec beaucoup de plaisir votre compliment sur la charge dont il a plu au Roy de m'honorer. Comme je suis persuadé de la verité de vos sentimens; je vous prie de l'estre aussi de celle aux la quelle je suis, Monsieur, Votre tres humble et tres aff[ect]ué Serviteur, Law." On 5 January 1720, John Law was appointed controller-general of the finances of France and "in April received the more prestigious title of superintendent (surintendant des finances, a title not used since 1661 and never again to be used in France). In the course of April and May 1720 he was effectively chief minister and minister of finance, a sort of latter-day Cardinal Mazarin and Nicolas Fouquet combined; but on 27 May, the first crisis of his 'financial system', he was temporarily dismissed from office and threatened with imprisonment in the Bastille in Paris. Yet the eclipse was only brief: he returned to office on 2 June with the additional responsibilities of the superintendence of French commerce, the director-generalship of the Banque Royale, and a councillorship of state with a seat in the council of regency. With the collapse of his system Law was forced to offer his resignation on 9 December 1720, and he went into exile abroad, first to the Austrian Netherlands on 17 or 18 December. He returned to England, though his time there was not untroubled. The death of the régent in 1723 wrecked his hopes for a restoration in France and he moved on to Italy two years later with a commission from the king of England to any other prince or state 'not for use but for protection' (DNB). He died from pneumonia at Venice in comparative poverty on 21 March 1729, having received the Catholic last rites. The collapse of his system had brought down his own personal finances, which though very considerable in 1720 (a letter from Law to the régent, dated 1 March 1721, talked of his shareholdings at that time being worth nearly 100 millions) had been inflated by paper assets which in the end proved worthless." (ODNB). Docketed in the top left hand corner "M. Lass. Remercimens du comp.s fait au sujet du controle general". [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Following the long period of Dutch domination, the Homann family became the most important map publishers in Germany in the eighteenth century, the business being founded by J.B. Homann in Nuremberg about the year 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin academy of Sciences and in 1715 he was appointed Geographer to the Emperor.

        Pythagorae Carmen Aureum: Graece & Latine, cum analysi critica & ethica, imitationibus item graeco-latinis. II., Casp. Barlaei Orationesii Patheticae, una Elegiaca, altera Epica, cum analysi rhetorica, Opera & studio M. Joann. Christiani Knauth.

      Straßburg: Beckius, 1720. - 8 (165 x 100 mm) 8 Blätter, 410 Seiten, 8 Blätter, mit Frontispiz. Hübscher Lederband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung und marmoriertem Schnitt. Zwei Ex Libris u.a. von K. G. Hagström und Ekströmer. Von Johann Christian Knauth (1662-1732) edierte Ausgabe mit Anmerkungen von Caspar Barlaeus (1584-1648). Goldene Verse (lateinisch carmen aureum) ist die gängige Bezeichnung für ein antikes Gedicht von einem unbekannten Pythagoreer. Es enthält Ratschläge zur Lebensführung. Die Goldenen Verse sind 71 Hexameter. Der Dichter wendet sich in direkter Rede an den Leser und gibt ihm Anweisungen. Das Gedicht besteht aus zwei Teilen. Der erste Teil bietet Ratschläge für eine philosophische Lebensführung. Man soll die Götter und die Eltern und Verwandten ehren, Freundschaften überlegt schließen und dann bewahren, alle Worte und Taten vorher achtsam bedenken, das Schicksal gleichmütig ertragen, in jeder Hinsicht maßvoll sein, die Leidenschaften beherrschen, die Vergänglichkeit im Auge behalten und jeden Abend eine Bilanz der Leistungen und Versäumnisse des Tages ziehen. Die Verse 47 und 48 enthalten den auch anderweitig überlieferten Pythagoreischen Eid, der auf Pythagoras als den Entdecker der Tetraktys (Vierheit) geschworen wurde. Im zweiten Teil werden dem Leser die Früchte einer solchen Lebensführung vor Augen gestellt. Wenn er sich die philosophischen Lehren aneignet, begreift er die überall gleichen Naturgesetze und erlangt Befreiung vom Leid durch Einsicht in dessen Ursachen. Dies ist möglich, da die Ste blichen in Wirklichkeit von göttlicher Natur und daher zu solchem Verstehen befähigt sind. Dem, der die Ratschläge beherzigt, wird in Aussicht gestellt, dass er als unsterbliche Seele, nachdem er im Tod seinen Körper verlassen hat, in den freien Äther gelangen und das Leben eines Gottes führen wird. Mit dieser Verheißung endet das Gedicht.- VD18 12333077 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
