        Japan map - Seutter.

      Regni Japoniae Nova Mappa Geographica, ex indigenarum observationibus delineata ab Engelberto Kaempfero recusa et emendata a Matth. Seuttero, S.C. Maj. Geogr. Aug. Vind.Decorative map of Japan published at Matthaeus Seutter in Augsburg around 1720-30. The map was engraved by Tobias Conrad Lotter, after the geographical sketches of the travel by Engelbert Kaempfer to Japan. In the upper left corner there is a large figurative and allegoric title cartouche, with scenes relating to the exploration of Japan. The bottom of the map is ornated with Japanese arms relating to the kingdom of Japan. Copper engraving, coloured by a later hand. Plate size approx. 49 x 56,7 cm. Seutter, an 18th-century cartographer, was born in Augsburg (Germany) in 1678. In 1697 he became an apprentice to the cartographer Johann Baptiste Homann. By 1707 he returned to Augsburg where he established his own business and produced maps (about 500), atlases (since 1728/30) and globes. Seutter's maps are quite similar to Homann's, and were famous for their details, colour, and decorative cartouches. After dedicating his large atlas to Karl VI, Seutter was awarded the title of "Kaiserlicher Geograph". One of his daughters, Euphrosine married the cartographer Tobias Conrad Lotter from Augsburg who, after the death of Seutter's son, Albrecht Carl, became the successor to Seutter and a famous mapmaker on his own.

        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).

        Amsterdam Schreierstoren, Geldersekade, 1720.

      "Gezicht van den Ykant af bezyden den Schreiers Hoex Toren langs de Keulsche en Geldersche Kaei naer den Nieuwe Markt, St. Antonis Waeg en Zuider Kerk."(Tegenwoordig heet de hele gracht Geldersekade en kijken we richting Nieuwmarkt en Waag.) Gravure van 2 koperen platen gedrukt, later met de hand gekleurd. Ca. 1720 vervaardigd door Hendrick de Leth, naar A. Rademaker. Afm. ca. 57,5 x 93 cm.Dit blad komt uit een serie van 25 zeldzame fraaie grote gezichten van Amsterdam en geeft een kleurrijk beeld van het leven en bedrijf van de stad aan het begin van de 18e eeuw. Niet alleen voor het stadsbeeld en architectuur uit die tijd is deze bijzondere prent van belang, maar ook door de aardige stoffering, die zeden en gewoonten schetst. Er spelen zich allerlei taferelen af ??onder het volk en de deftige luiden?. Zo is er links van de brug op de voorgrond (tegenwoordig Prins Hendrikkade) een vechtpartij, terwijl voor de Scheierstoren rustige burgers de daartegen aangeplakte biljetten lezen.Aan het begin van de Geldersekade op de hoek met de Oudezijds Kolk, staat de Schreierstoren. De Schreierstoren is de enige overgebleven verdedigingstoren van de middeleeuwse stadsmuur. Oorspronkelijk rees de toren op vanuit het water met net boven het wateroppervlak 2 schietgaten. In 1532 kreeg hij zijn huidige gedaante. In het begin van de zeventiende eeuw werd de stadsmuur afgebroken en de singel gegraven. De toren heette oorspronkelijk de Schreiershoekstoren. ?Schreihoek? verwijst waarschijnlijk naar de scherpe hoek waar de Geldersekade en de Oudezijds Kolk samenkomen. De Schreierstoren is echter de geschiedenis ingegaan als de plek waar veel vrouwen schreiend hun geliefden hebben zien wegvaren.De Geldersekade dankt haar naam aan de aangemeerde beurtschepen, een soort geregelde lijndiensten, die op de Gelderse steden voeren nadat deze gracht binnen de nieuwe stadsmuren was komen te liggen.Literatuur: Veiling catalogus verzameling De Vries (1925), nr. 273.Prijs: ?4.250,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling van toepassing).

        Regni Mexicani seu Novae Hispaniae, Ludovicianae, N. Angliae, Carolinae, Virginiae et Pensylvaniae, necnon Insularum, Archipelagi Mexicani in America Septentrionali

      Homann, Johann Baptist, Nuremburg - This striking circa 1720 map by Johann Baptist Homann extends from the Great Lakes southward to include Florida, West Indies, Central America, up to Venezuela, and from New Mexico to the eastern seaboard. Based on the 1703 Delisle map of Mexico and Florida, this map includes information from the explorations of La Salle, Bienville, Le Sueur, d'Iberville, Lederer, and other early travelers.The most striking features of this map are the elaborate cartouches. The title cartouche in the top left depicts Native American figures along with the various natural resources of the Americas including beaver pelts and tobacco rolls. A large cartouche in the Atlantic depicts a gold mining scene with natives helping Europeans fill their chests with treasures. The third cartouche just off the Pacific Coast of Mexico depicts a sea battle with a large warship (likely British or French) and a smaller fleet (likely Spanish). These cartouches enhance the focus of this map.The British colonies are accurately shown along the east coast, east of the Appalachians. Following the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht, French claims in Louisiana extend from the Rio del Norte to the Appalachians and include Florida and north to include the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence in 'Canada Nova Francia'. Spanish influence can be noted in the west and south to include Mexicana, Nova Hispania and America Meridionalis. Dotted lines track the routes of the Spanish fleets. Throughout, the map notes several place names, native tribes, villages, early settlements, forts, and several other topographic features. The kingdom of Quivira, the supposed ancient city of gold in North America, is identified just below the title cartouche. In good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold and minor foxing at places. Appropriate original coloring with the cartouches left black and white. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century, including being geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers. Map. Copper engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 18.75" x 22.5".

        Considérations sur le Commerce et sur l'Argent. Par Mr Law, Controlleur Genéral des Finances. Traduit de l'Anglais.

      - La Haye, Jean Neaulme, 1720. In-12, demi-maroquin rouge cerise, dos à 5 nerfs orné de compartiments garnis de doubles filets d'encadrement, palette en tête et pied, pièce de titre de maroquin bronze, tranches mouchetées (rel. Devauchelle dans le goût de l'époque), (1) f. de titre, (4) p. de préface, (2) p. de table, 187 et (19) p. de catalogue de l'éditeur, titre noir et rouge, portait gravé frontispice de John Law. Première édition française du principal ouvrage économique de John Law et l’un des rares publié de son vivant l’année même de la banqueroute. Elle est ornée d’un portrait de l’auteur, portrait rare qui ne figure qu’à un petit nombre d’exemplaires. John Law présenta ce projet devant le parlement d’Ecosse en 1705. Il y expose son système économique et financier fondé sur le principe que l’abondance du numéraire est une source de prospérité et que la valeur de l’or et de l’argent tient non à leur rareté mais au fait qu’ils servent d’instrument d’échange. Si le projet ne rencontra pas l’approbation des responsables au Royaume-Uni, il réussit à convaincre le régent qui tenta de le réaliser en France. La spéculation conduira le système à la banqueroute (1720). Sur la base de cet ouvrage, Joseph Schumpeter, dans son ‘Histoire de l’analyse économique’, place Law "au premier rang des théoriciens de la monnaie de tous les temps". (Einaudi, 3274. Goldsmiths, 5820. Kress, 3235). Bel exemplaire, très frais, très bien relié. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Japan map - Seutter.

      Regni Japoniae Nova Mappa Geographica, ex indigenarum observationibus delineata ab Engelberto Kaempfero recusa et emendata a Matth. Seuttero, S.C. Maj. Geogr. Aug. Vind.Decorative map of Japan published at Matthaeus Seutter in Augsburg around 1720-30. The map was engraved by Tobias Conrad Lotter, after the geographical sketches of the travel by Engelbert Kaempfer to Japan. In the upper left corner there is a large figurative and allegoric title cartouche, with scenes relating to the exploration of Japan. The bottom of the map is ornated with Japanese arms relating to the kingdom of Japan. Copper engraving, coloured by a later hand. Plate size approx. 49 x 56,7 cm. Seutter, an 18th-century cartographer, was born in Augsburg (Germany) in 1678. In 1697 he became an apprentice to the cartographer Johann Baptiste Homann. By 1707 he returned to Augsburg where he established his own business and produced maps (about 500), atlases (since 1728/30) and globes. Seutter's maps are quite similar to Homann's, and were famous for their details, colour, and decorative cartouches. After dedicating his large atlas to Karl VI, Seutter was awarded the title of "Kaiserlicher Geograph". One of his daughters, Euphrosine married the cartographer Tobias Conrad Lotter from Augsburg who, after the death of Seutter's son, Albrecht Carl, became the successor to Seutter and a famous mapmaker on his own.

        Fascinating Pair of Autograph Letters Signed to the Earl CONINGSBY (George, 1657-1732, Lieutenant-General, Commander-in-Chief, Scotland, from 1719 Baron Carpenter in the Irish Peerage)

      1720 - (Thomas, 1657-1729, from 1719 1st Earl), in his engaging hand, in the first thanking him for offering "your interest for my standing at Webly", (Weobley in Herefordshire), "My reason for desiring time was in order to disengage my self handsomely at the Burrough I now serve for .

As for joyning in thanks to the Directors of the South Sea, I then knew nothing they had done to ruin their Country; for at that time no Man was a looser by the Company . nor did I say above five words, and twas to second a Nobleman that I had an esteem for . for the generall Court were at that time unanimous in their opinion that they had behav'd well . As to the other Person I never . heard but by your Lordships letter of his behaviour to you, therefore could not know of his being sent to insult you", as to Weobley, he had applied to Coningsby as "a piece of respect" but still has "severall frends there.

        Regni Mexicani seu Novae Hispaniae, Ludovicianae, N. Angliae, Carolinae, Virginiae et Pensylvaniae, necnon Insularum, Archipelagi Mexicani in America Septentrionali

      Nuremburg: Homann, Johann Baptist. unbound. Map. Copper engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 18.75" x 22.5". This striking circa 1720 map by Johann Baptist Homann extends from the Great Lakes southward to include Florida, West Indies, Central America, up to Venezuela, and from New Mexico to the eastern seaboard. Based on the 1703 Delisle map of Mexico and Florida, this map includes information from the explorations of La Salle, Bienville, Le Sueur, d'Iberville, Lederer, and other early travelers.<br><br>The most striking features of this map are the elaborate cartouches. The title cartouche in the top left depicts Native American figures along with the various natural resources of the Americas including beaver pelts and tobacco rolls. A large cartouche in the Atlantic depicts a gold mining scene with natives helping Europeans fill their chests with treasures. The third cartouche just off the Pacific Coast of Mexico depicts a sea battle with a large warship (likely British or French) and a smaller fleet (likely Spanish). These cartouches enhance the focus of this map.<br><br>The British colonies are accurately shown along the east coast, east of the Appalachians. Following the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht, French claims in Louisiana extend from the Rio del Norte to the Appalachians and include Florida and north to include the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence in 'Canada Nova Francia'. Spanish influence can be noted in the west and south to include Mexicana, Nova Hispania and America Meridionalis. Dotted lines track the routes of the Spanish fleets. <br><br>Throughout, the map notes several place names, native tribes, villages, early settlements, forts, and several other topographic features. The kingdom of Quivira, the supposed ancient city of gold in North America, is identified just below the title cartouche. In good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold and minor foxing at places. Appropriate original coloring with the cartouches left black and white.<br><br> Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century, including being geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers.

        POLAND Ð Baltic Coast: Mer Baltique. C&#153;te de Prusse. De Jersh&#154;ft &#136; Rixh&#154;ft dÕapr&#143;s les Cartes de lÔAmiraut&#142; Allemande.

      - A rare and highly attractive sea chart, embracing much of the Baltic Coast of Poland, featuring vignettes of lighthouses and other landmarks. This fine sea chart embraces the Polish Baltic Coast from Jaros?awiec, in what is now the West Pomeranian (Zachodniopomorskie) vovoidship all the way west to the resort city of Sopot in the Pomeranian (Pomorskie) vovoidship, just shy of Gda?sk. The seas feature detailed hydrographic information, such as bathymetric soundings, the locations of shoals and hazards, the nature of the sea floor and magnetic declination. On the shore, the locations of lighthouses are heightened in orange. Forests, highlands, lakes, towns and railways are depicted, while the chart is embellished with several attractive pictorial vignettes of major landmarks. The chart is based on advanced hydrographic surveys conducted by the Kaiserliche Marine (German Imperial Navy), as the region was then under the administration of the German Empire. It was issued by the D&#142;p&#153;t g&#142;n&#142;ral de la Marine, the French NavyÕs hydrographic service, which since 1720, had been one of the worldÕs leading makers of sea charts. The first edition the chart was issued in 1883, with the present edition being issued in 1907, embracing corrections and improvements up to September of that year. Interestingly, in the lower right corner (blank margin) features the contemporary stamp of the likely original seller of the chart: ÔWeisaeker / Opticien de la Marine / 13, Rue du Quai, Dunkerque.Õ The major towns and lakes featured on the chart, running west to east, are: ÔJersh&#154;ftÕ (Jaros?awiec); ÔLac de VietzkeÕ (Jezioro Wicko); ÔStolpm&#159;ndeÕ (Utska); ÔStolpeÕ (Slupsk); ÔLac de GardeÕ (Jezioro Gardno); ÔLac de LebaÕ (Jezioro Lebsko); ÔLac SarbskeÕ (Jezioro Sarbsko); ÔLac de ZarnowitzÕ (Jezioro ?arnowieckie); ÔRixh&#154;ftÕ (Rozewie); ÔPutzigÕ (Puck); ÔOxh&#154;ftÕ (Oksywie); ÔGdingenÕ (now named Gdynia); ÔFor&#144;t dÕOlivaÕ (Oliwa Forest); ÔZoppatÕ (Sopot). The most striking difference between the mapping on the chart and the appearance of the region today is the depiction of the area along the shores of the Bay of Gda?sk (Zatoka Gda?ska) and Puck Bay (Zatoka Pucka), on the right-hand side of the chart, running between ÔZoppotÕ (Sopot) and ÔPutzigÕ (Puck). While already a popular resort area by the turn of the 19th-20th Centuries, the region was still largely a sparsely populated, bucolic rural area. This would all change dramatically following its transfer to the newly created Polish Republic in 1920. As the corridor was then PolandÕs only outlet to the sea, vast resources were allocated to developing the region. Most notably, ÔGdingenÕ (Gdynia), which is shown to be a small town of barely 2,000 residents in 1907, grew to have a population of over 120,000 in 1939, and is today a sizable city and major port. The most attractive aspect of the chart are the 10 vignettes that depict major landmarks, such as lighthouses and churches, including: ÔPhare de Jersh&#154;ftÕ (Jaros?awiec Lighthouse / Latarnia Morska Jaros?awiec); ÔEglise de MarsowÕ (Marszewo Church / Ko?ci&#151;? Marszewo); ÔEglise de GardÕ (Grdno Church / Ko?ci&#151;? Gardno); ÔPhare de ScholprinÕ (Smo?dzi?ski Lighthouse / Latarnia Morska Smo?dzi?ski); ÔEglise de ZarnowitzÕ (?arnowieckie Church / Ko?ci&#151;? ?arnowieckie); ÔNouveau Phare de Rixh&#154;ftÕ (New Rozewie Lighthouse / Nowa Latarnia Morska Rozewie); ÔVieux Phare de Rixh&#154;ftÕ (Old Rozewie Lighthouse / Stara Latarnia Morska Rozewie); ÔPhare de Oxh&#154;ftÕ (Oksywie Lighthouse / Latarnia Morska Oksywie); ÔEglise dÕOxh&#154;ftÕ (Oksywie Church / Ko?ci&#151;? Oksywie); and ÔHochwasserÕ, the historic villa, near Sopot. The survival rate of such working sea charts is remarkably low, as the vast majority perished due to heavy use aboard ships. The present chart is thus very rare, we are not aware of another example appearing on the market during the last generation. References: Justus Perthes, Dr. A. Petermann's Mitteilungen aus Justus Perthes' geographischer Anstalt, volume 31 (1885), p. 78; Mon

      Cosmopoli. [London], 1720, In-8°, de 3 ff. et 89 pp., texte en rouge et noir, pl. veau brun époque, double encadrement dorés sur les plats avec fleurons d'angles, dos orné (rel. anglaise) rousseurs sinon bel exemplaire. Rarissime ouvrage tiré à très petit nombre, qui d'après P. Dujols & E. Nourry servait de rituel à une loge maçonnique dont les tenues appelées "sodalités" avaient lieu dans le secret le plus absolu, et dont l'activité était surtout antichrétienne et dont firent partie Bolinbrooke, Coolins, Tindall, Wolston, David Hume et d'Holbach. D'après le témoignage de Condorcet, Voltaire aurait reçu la lumière dans une de ces Sodalités dès l'âge de 32 ans et donc lors de son affiliation à la Loge des Neufs-Soeurs il était initié depuis longtemps, c'est ce qu'il confirme lui-même dans sa correspondance avec d'Alembert. Deschamps & Janet dans leur ouvrage sur les "Sociétés secrètes" consacrent un chapitre entier à Toland et à son ouvrage qu'ils considèrent comme une vraie révélation des secrets et agissements de la Maçonnerie d'alors. Il est dédié au lectori philomato et philalethi, et Mirabeau le fit adopter par la Loge des "Philalèthes ou amis réunis""On prétend que cet ouvrage est celui de Toland qui renferme le plus d'impiétés... a un tel degré de perversité que les libertins même en ont été indignés. L'auteur y établit une société qu'il appelle socratique, et lui fait prendre pour hymnes les odes d'Horace" (Peignot, II, 161). "En examinant cette pièce, dit Mosheim, composée d'antiphones, de leçons, de litanies, le tout imprimé en caractères rouges et noirs, on peut difficilement s'empêcher de croire que l'intention de l'auteur n'ait été de tourner en ridicule les liturgies chrétiennes" (Hoefer, 45, 471). C'est celui de tous les ouvrages de Toland qui a causé le plus de scandale. Certains disent qu'il n'en avait fait tirer que 50 exemplaires et le distribuait lui-même mystérieusement à ses amis matérialistes, libres penseurs, libertins. Rappelons qu'il a paru 3 ans après les Constitutions maçonniques de 1717, et que le seul écrit qui fasse allusion à la Grande Loge d'Angleterre, "The Long Lewers", lui est postérieur. Il est qualifié "d'introuvable" par Dujols qui rappelle que Deschamps & Janet n'ont jamais pu s'en procurer un exemplaire, que Nourrisson en parle comme d'un mythe, et Brucker seulement par ouï-dire. Première édition. ¶ Stephen H. Daniel, Toland: his mehtods, manners and mind p.13 "Putting his principle into practice, Toland had very few copies of his Pantheisticon printed, and these he personally gave to his friends" - Albert Lantoine Un précurseur de la Franc-maçonnerie : John Toland (1670-1722), Nourry 1927 - Jammes Bûcher bibliogr. n°677 - Fesch p.1383 - Manque à Caillet et à Dorbon.
