        Niewe Afteekening van het Eyland en Koninkryk Sicilia

      Amsterdam 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. This map of Sicily was certainly engraved after 1718, because it represented the battle of Capo Passero between English and Spanish, which took place in that year. The representation of Sicily has similarities with that by Cantelli published in 1682, while it does consider the corrections of Delisle. As Hydrographer, van Keulen reports much needed information to mariners, signaling the possible landing sites. Copper engraving, beautiful original coloring, perfect condition. Very rare. L.

        Amsterdam, Muntplein - De Leth, ca. 1720.

      ?Gezicht op de Schapen Markt naer den Reguliers Toren, de Munt, en een gedeelte van de Doele Sluis nevens het Rondeel en den binnen Amstel over de Halve Maensbrugh langs de Erweten Markt en de Huizen van de Zwanenburg straet.? Kopergravure van het Amsterdamse (tegenwoordige) Muntplein ?Uitgegeven by Andries en Hendrik de Leth op de Beurs Sluis inde Visser?, ca. 1720. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 58 x 92 cm.De Munt ? een van de drukste plekken in de stad. Alleen de Dam en de omgeving van het Centraal Station zijn drukker. Zo was het al toen Andries en Hendrik de Leth deze zeer gedetailleerde prent maakten.De legenda onder de prent verklaart een aantal van de gebouwen: ?Reguliers Toren, genoemt naer het Reguliers Klooster, hier buyten by den Amstel gestaen hebbende daar nu de Peil Sluis op de Uitrechtse Straet legt, is in 1619 op de grondslagen van den Zuiderlyken Oude Reguliers Poorts, naer het ontwerp vanden Stads Boumeester Hendrik de Keizer, gemaeckt; De Munt soo genaemt, om dat in den jare 1673 aldaer de Hollandsche Munt geplaetst wiert wegens der Franschen overval in deze landen, versterkte te voren tot een Burger Wachthuis en vergader Kamer der Gildens, is als nu een voorname Herberg, die sedert korte jaren merkelijk vergroot is.? De Munttoren was in oorsprong een zijtoren van de 15de-eeuwse Regulierspoort, ??n van de drie hoofdpoorten van de middeleeuwse vestingwerken van de stad. Het poorthuis stond op de plaats van de doorrit. In het rampjaar 1672, toen de munthuizen in de Republiek bedreigd werden door de Franse legers, werd een tijdelijk muntatelier gevestigd in het wachtheuis naast de toren. Een jaar later was de dreiging afgenomen en vertrok de munt weer, maar de Amsterdammers hebben de naam gehouden. De rest van de poort was toen al afgebroken en vervangen door woonhuizen, die we hier op de grvure zien staan. Die huizen zijn weer verdwenen in de 19de eeuw, toen het verkeer in de stad steeds meer ruimte opeiste, zodat tenslotte het moderne verkeersplein ontstond, waar elke seconde lijkt te tellen.Links zien we: de ?Doele Sluis strekkende over het Rokin naer de Doele Straet, heeft acht steene zuilen en zeven gewelfde bogen, en is in 1633 hier gelegt inde plaetze van de Rode brugh, die geheel van hout was; het Hoekhuis van de Nieuwe Doele Straet aan den opgang van de sluis, wort het Rondeel genaemt, als gebouwt op het voetstuk van zekere sterkte, in den jare 1482 tot beveiliging van den Amstel gesticht, en ?t Rondeel genoemt in den jare 1631 gesloopt.?We zien voor herberg In de Munt een tweetal worden afgevoerd, omstanders kijken toe. Ook een man met een aap op de mouw trekt enige aandacht. Voor het huis van de ?Openbare Notaris?zien we een klassieke kwakzalver vanaf een krukje een menigte toespreken. Op de tafel voor hem allerlei flesjes en potjes. Voor de huizen waar koffie en thee worden verkocht wijzen mensen naar boven, wellicht dat men luistert naar het carillon van de Munttoren. Het is een mooie zomermiddag, een uur. Voor de wijzerplaat draait alleen een uurwijzer. Minuutwijzers verschenen pas rond 1870 op de openbare klokken in de stad. Een heer helpt zijn dame uit een toeslede. Links komt een koets met tweespan de brug over gesneld. Wie er in zitten weten we niet, maar mensen kijken om en nemen hun hoed af. Het leven in de stad zoals hier door de gebroeders De Leth opgetekend lijkt een aangenaam geordende, overzichtelijke wereld.Prijs: ?3.450,- (incl. lijst).

        Systême d'un nouveau gouvernement en France. Tome I [- IV]. Le Prix des quatre Volumes est de cent livres en Argent, & de quatre cent livres en Billets de Banque,

      Amsterdam: Chez François le Bon, 1720 - 4 volumes bound in 2, duodecimo (162 x 90 mm). Contemporary French red morocco, boards with decorative roll border and centrally stamped coat of arms (see below), spines elaborately decorated and lettered gilt in compartments, gilt edges. Very discreet repairs to joints and spine ends, title pages to volumes II and IV discarded; tear to the first folding table repaired without loss; printed on mixed paper stock, a few spots and stains, one or two short marginal tears and some leaves browned, generally very good in an excellent contemporary binding. 4 folding engraved tables. First edition of a very rare work by La Jonchère, one of the most original works of political economy of the 18th century. Writing after the death of Louis XIV in 1715, La Jonchère puts forward a detailed and comprehensive plan of financial reform. Although he "expressly denies having followed Vauban's Dixme Royale, he starts from the same initial principle. He advocates one sole tax, to be paid without privilege or exemption, by all Frenchmen without distinction, to consist of a percentage collected in money or in kind, on the general produce of the ground, mines quarries, etc., by a 'Compagnie du Commerce', to be formed for the purpose. This company was to have the monopoly of foreign trade, its shares being given as reimbursement of the price of all the offices sold by the king's predecessors and of the capital of the rents due to towns or individuals. The corn collected by the company was to be sold at a permanently fixed price. The company was also to be entrusted with the recoinage and 'diminution' of the metallic currency, which were to bring it down to what. La Jonchère calls its 'intrinsic value.'" (E. Castelot in Palgrave). Unlike Vauban and Boisguilbert, La Jonchère sought not simply to find a fiscal system to meet the enormous debts left by Louis XIV, but also to find a solution to the general misery of the people. According to Alphonse Callery, La Jonchère wasted little time criticising earlier authors (though he does indeed criticise the work of Boisguilbert and of Vauban); what he proposes is a complete fiscal system, and with the precise detail of his plan, it is easy to see that he is no dreamer, but a clear minded thinker, with a well established understanding of mathematical concepts. An engineer by training, he had travelled extensively both in France and abroad, accumulating precious documents on financial administration. The book was printed between 1718 and 1719 (though dated 1720) and presented to the Regent as a gift. It is suggested that the book's rarity is due to the fact that John Law stole many of the ideas for his own financial system, and destroyed as many copies of the book as he could to hide the fact. INED 2517; not in any of the other standard bibliographies. See Alphonse Callery, Les Réformateurs de l'ancienne France. Le Précurseur de Law: La Jonchère, Fontaineblaeu, 1880, p. 3ff.)

        LETTERS AND NEGOTIATIONS OF SIR RALPH SADLER, AMBASSADOR OF KING HENRY VIII OF ENGLAND AND SCOTLAND

      Edinburgh: printed for Mr. James McEuen and George Stuart, 1720. Hard Cover. Fine. Octavo. Containing the transactions of two memorable embassies; The first, to King James V. in the year 1540, in order to dispose him towards reformation; The second, to the Governor and states of Scotland, in the year 1543, concerning a marriage betwixt Mary their young Queen and Edward VI. then Prince of Wales; and a perpetual friendship and Union between the two nations. xxiv, 456pp. Recently bound to style in ¼ leather over marbled boards; new endpapers; raised bands with compartments stamped in blind, red leather label gilt. Small blind stamp to edge of title page but too faint to read. Sir Ralph Sadler was King Henry the VIII's great minister and Earl of Essex and was sent on many worthy missions. In 1537 he was sent on a most delicate and important mission to Scotland, to try to find out how much truth there was in the complaints made by his sister, Margaret, the Queen-Dowager, against her third husband, Lord Methven, and to investigate the relations between the King of Scotland and the French. More importantly, after King Henry's death in 1547, Sadler went on to fight the battle at Pinkie Cleugh. For his outstanding military achievements, he was made one of three Knight bannerets. A handsome copy, internally very clean and handsomely bound to style.,

        Zeeland wandkaart - Roman/Visser, Ottens.

      ZEELAND OP DE KAART GEZET?Zeelandiae Comitatus??, kopergravure gedrukt op 9 bladen, vervaardigd door Zacharias Roman en Nicolaas Visscher I, ca. 1720 uitgegeven door Reinier Ottens. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 137 x 156,5 cm. In het midden van de zeventiende eeuw, 100 jaar na het verschijnen van de eerste gedrukte kaart van Zeeland, bestond behoefte aan een nieuwe grootschalige kaart, een wandkaart. Men was zuinig en vond het niet nodig een nieuwe opmeting van de provincie te laten verrichten. Er waren immers al veel regionale kaarten, polderkaarten en er bestond een recente, goede kaart van Walcheren. Door de samenvoeging van al deze kaarten moest het mogelijk zijn een nieuwe kaart te maken.De opdracht werd gegeven aan Zacharias Roman, boekhandelaar en uitgever in Middelburg. Hij maakte de kaart in samenwerking met het uitgevershuis Visscher in Amsterdam. Zo ontstond in 1655 de zgn. Visscher-Roman kaart, een werkelijk prachtig uitgevoerde kaart vol details, al was hij geografisch niet erg betrouwbaar, omdat door samenvoeging van kaarten met verschillende schalen de verhoudingen niet kloppen. Toch werd de kaart door de overheid geaccepteerd. Alles stond er op, steden, dorpen, polders en dat was voor de bestuurders kennelijk voldoende.De kaart werd in de loop der tijd meermaals bijgewerkt en bleef tot in de achttiende eeuw in productie. Na het overlijden van de weduwe van Nicolaas Visscher II, kwamen de koperplaten in handen van het uitgevershuis Ottens en verscheen rond 1720 een vijfde (en laatste staat) van de kaart. Waarvan hier een exemplaar. Literatuur: Blonk - Zeelandia Comitatus, p 62-68, nr. 41C.5 Prijs: ?6.750,- (de kaart is tussen stokken gemonteerd op linnen).
