HOMANN, Johann Baptist
1720. 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. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johannes Baptiste HOMANN (1663 - 1724)
1720. Splendida mappa del Regno di Napoli pubblicata da J. B. Homann, secondo il suo stile cartografico caratterizzato dall'accuratezza e ricchezza dei dettagli. Il grande cartiglio con titolo cartiglio raffigura un feroce mostro marino in procinto di divorare una fanciulla, in aiuto della quale arriva, dall'alto, un cavaliere in sella a Pegaso.

Incisione su rame, coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione.

The distance scale features a scene showing an erupting Mount Vesuvius, putti and the royal coat of arms of the Kingdom of Naples. Copper engraving, original hand colours, in excellent condition.

[TOLAND (John)]
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).

Girolamo ROSSI (Roma, 1682 - 1762)
1720. "Acquaforte e bulino, 1720, firmato in basso a destra ""Girolamo Rossi inc."" e a sinistra ""Cav. Pietro Leone Ghezzi delin."" Ottimo esemplare, impresso su carta vergata coeva, completo dei margini bianchi, in ottimo stato di coservazione. Il ritratto dell'ingegnere e maestro Nicola Zabaglia (1664 - 1750), inciso da Girolamo Rossi su un disegno di Pietro Leone Ghezzi, fu realizzato nel 1720, quando lo Zabaglia aveva 56 anni. Nel 1743, quando finalmente fu data alle stampe l'opera ""Castelli, e ponti di Maestro Niccola Zabaglia..."", presso lo stampatore Pagliarini, il ritratto fu utilizzato quale frontespizio dell'opera. L'opera raccoglieva tutte le macchine inventate e costruite dallo Zabaglia che, dopo aver concepito il progetto dell'opera, intorno agli anni '20, l'aveva poi abbandonato. Figlio di Alessandro, capomastro di San Pietro, Nicola Zabaglia iniziò a lavorare alla Fabbrica di San Pietro nel 1686, come semplice muratore ma in breve tempo, grazie alla sua ingegnosità e bravura nel progettare e realizzare diverse apparecchiature, riuscì ad ottenere uno ""studio"" nella soffitta della navata centrale della basilica, dal quale poteva sovrintendere ai lavori di manutenzione con una trentina di operai alle sue dipendenze (scalpellini, muratori e falegnami). Nel 1740 viene eletto Benedetto XIV Lambertini che subito disponde che l'iniziativa editoriale, di cui doveva essere a conoscenza, venga ripresa. Nicola ha 76 anni; molti dei suoi modelli sono andati distrutti, e i pochi superstiti sono danneggiati. Introvabili anche i rami precedentemente incisi.

Köfering, 1720. - 1 Blatt, 76 numerierte Blätter, 4to, Halbpergamentband der Zeit mit marmorierten Deckelbezügen und handschriftlichem Einbandtitel. Handschriftliche Auflistung von Ausgaben und Einnahmen der damaligen Schlosskirche St. Michaelis in Köfering. Die Pfarrkirche wurde 1617/18 von Meister Hans Schön erbaut. Ein Neubau mit Begräbniskapelle wurde von Meister Hans Kaspar Ottl ausgeführt und 1732 konsekriert. Die Grafen von Lerchenfeld sind seit 1569 im Ort ansässig. Der erste Graf, Franz Adam Graf von und zu Lerchenfeld auf Köfering und Schönberg (1662-1734) war kurfürstlicher Kämmerer des Inneren Rates und oberster Hofmarschall. Die Erhebung in den Grafenstand erfolgte 1698. In der Herrschaft folgt der Sohn, Graf Philipp Ernst (1689 - 1746), in dessen Regentschaft diese Handschrift entstanden ist. Er war mit Maria Walburga, Gräfin von Trautmannsdorf vermählt, die wiederum am Hofe der Kaiserin Maria Theresia die Erzieherin unter anderem der letzten Königin von Frankreich Marie Antoinette war! Der Sohn, Graf Philipp Nerius schrieb die in Chroniken viel zitierte und benutzte Regestensammlung vom Jahre 1773, die aber 1945 verloren ging! Somit stellt unsere Handschrift ein wichtiges Dokument der Geschichte der Grafen Lerchenfeld als auch der Gemeinde Köfering dar! Mit einigen kleinen Pergamentreitern im Schnitt. Der Einband beschabt, das Bezugpapier vereinzelt etwas abgeblättert, die Ecken bestoßen, Wurmgang am hinteren Innendeckel (3x2 cm).
