        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]

        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]

      - Antique Map, titled: 'Regni Mexicani seu Nova Hispaniae Ludovicianus, N. Angliae, Carolinae, Virginiae et Pensylvaniae ( ).' - This superb map covers the region from the Great Lakes and Nova Scotia through Central America, the Caribbean and Venezuela, and from New Mexico (naming Taos and Santa Fe) to the eastern seaboard. The map is based largely on Delisle's map of 1703 (Carte du Mexique et de la Floride), depicting the social, political, and economic outcomes from the War of the Spanish Succession, also known as Queen Anne's War. The British colonies are shown confined east of the Appalachians and extending south almost to St. Augustine, deep into Spanish-claimed territory. The map itself is filled with settlement place names, Indian tribes and villages. In present-day Texas, Corpus Christi and El Paso (el passo) are noted. Sea routes of treasure fleets from Vera Cruz and Cartagena to Havana and Spain are outlined. Richly embellished, a fine title cartouche depicts two native figures with items to trade, such as hides and blankets. In the Atlantic, there is a large scene of extensive gold mining operations, with Indians bringing their treasures to fill the Europeans' chest. Off the Pacific coast of Mexico is yet another opulent engraving of a raging sea battle, reminiscent of the battles fought in Queen Anne's War.

        Lettre autographe signée adressée au Régent de France, Philippe d'Orléans (1674-1723), 1 page 1/4 (18 lignes). La signature est incluse dans le texte à la fin de la lettre. Datée du jeudi 5 septembre 1720.

      1720 - PRINCESSE DE MONTAUBAN, Charlotte de Bautru de Nogent (1641-1725). Lettre autographe signée adressée au Régent de France, Philippe d'Orléans (1674-1723), 1 page 1/4 (18 lignes). La signature est incluse dans le texte à la fin de la lettre. Datée du jeudi 5 septembre 1720. La Princesse de Montauban, âgée de 79 ans, demande audience au Régent de manière insistante. "Après m'être présentée plus de dix fois dans vos cabinets et m'être fait annoncer à votre Altesse Royale, je n'ai pas pu parvenir à l'honneur de la voir. Ne sachant plus à quel saint me vouer, j'espère que vous trouverez bon Monseigneur que je vous demande par écrit un demi quart d'heure d'audience [.] (à propos de la vente de l'Hôtel de la Chancellerie revendue en avril 1720 au Régent) - confiée entièrement en vos bontés continuez les moy donc je vous supplie Monseigneur j'en n'ay grand besoin et de vos graces étant dans un état des plus violents mon respect ne me permet pas de vous dire davantage de crainte de vos ennuyer [.]". « C'étoit une bossue, tout de travers, fort laide, pleine de blanc, de rouge et de filets bleus pour marquer les veines, de mouches, de parures et d'affiquets, quoique déjà vieille, qu'elle a conservés jusqu'à plus de quatre-vingts ans qu'elle est morte. Rien de si effronté, de si débordé, de si avare, de si étrangement méchant que cette espèce de monstre, avec beaucoup d'esprit et du plus mauvais, et toutefois de l'agrément quand elle vouloit plaire. Elle étoit toujours à Saint-Cloud et au Palais-Royal quand Monsieur y étoit, à qui l'on reprochoit de l'y souffrir, quoique sa cour ne fût pas délicate sur la vertu. Elle n'approchoit point de la cour et personne de quelque sorte de maintien ne lui vouloit parler quand rarement on la rencontroit. Elle passoit sa vie au gros jeu et en débauches, qui lui coûtoient beaucoup d'argent » (Mémoires de Saint-Simon). Elle fut mariée deux fois. Une première fois le 14 décembre 1664 avec Nicolas d'Argouges, Marquis de Rasnes et d'Asnebec, Gouverneur d'Alençon (23 avril 1663), décédé le 13 juin 1678. Mariée avec Jean Baptiste Armand prince de Montbazon de Rohan-Guéméné, Prince de Montauban, décédé avant 1704. A propos de l'affaire même qui occupe la Princesse de Montauban dans ce courrier au Régent, il est établit qu'elle revend au Régent, le 17 avril 1720, l'Hôtel de la Chancellerie, en s'en réservant l'usufruit viager. Elle se fait si souvent solliciteuse que Dubois finit par donner directement à l'une de ses demandes cette réponse plus que discourtoise : —Allez vous faire f. Mme de Montauban se hâte de s'en plaindre au régent, qui est trop galant homme pour donner tort à une dame, mais qui en passe plus encore à l'ancien cuistre dont il met à profit les talents politiques. — Chère madame, répond-il, que voulez-vous ? Dubois a ses moments d'humeur ; mais c'est, au fond, un homme de bon conseil. BEAU DOCUMENT.
