HOMANN JOHANN BAPTIST.
Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca, 488x565. Splendido esemplare in vivace coloritura. J.B. Homann nasce a Norimberga nel 1663; lavora inizialmente per David Funk e per Giacomo Sandrart e finchè all'inizio del '700, nel 1702, inizia una propria produzione cartografica, raggiungendo ben presto un notevole successo per l'eleganza e la modernità, ben amalgamando aspetto scientifico e decorativo. Nel 1707 pubblica il primo atlante, arricchendolo rapidamente fino a superare il centinaio di carte con il ''Grosser Atlas" di 126 carte. Muore nel 1723. Copper plate, original colour, 488x565. A fine example. Homann was born in Nuremberg in 1663; he works for Funk and Sandrart until 1702, when he started his own printig house, publishing in 1707 the first atlas, enlarging it constantly. He died in 1723.

Van der Aa, Pieter
Leiden: , c1720. Engraved map, unclored, 29.8 x 22.1 cm (11.7" X 7"). Minor aging; decent margins, strong early crisp impression. Very nice little map.

The Nile River is depicted originating in two small lakes called "Damot and Dambea'. There is considerable detail throughout and some notations. Crisply engraved with a compass rose and a little cartouche featuring elephants, an ostrich and a man wrestling a crocodile. Van der Aa (1659-1733) was a publisher and bookseller known for his considerable output, and the decorative quality of his maps. May require extra postage.

VAN DER AA, Pieter (1659-1733)
Leiden, 1720. Copper-engraved map. (Expert restoration along the side margins). Decorative early 18th century map with California as an island. This map was first issued in the German edition of Montanus's De Nieuwe en Onbekende Weereld in 1671. "The map [i.e. the plate] was later acquired by Pieter Van der Aa and used in at least two of his works ... Van der Aa altered the plate removing the decorative cartouches and applying an entirely new one containing the title top left. There are various territories of the natives identified and one or two minor alterations of nomenclature" (Burden). Cartographically, the map follows the Visscher map of 1658, with California as an island and a large open lake in the place of the western Great Lakes.

Broadside
Printed sheet, 8 1/2 x 10 /12 inches. Two traditional sea shanties, the first relating a battle with Barbary pirates, and the second from a 1720 ballad by John Gay originally titled “Sweet William’s Farewell to Black-Ey’d Susan.” This version has been shortened from eight to five stanzas. Printed in two columns, each headed by a fine, crude wood engraving of a ship. Looks English, late 18th or early 19th century, but inscribed on the verso, “James Fuller / Boothbay April 27 / 1825” - so, either an import or an American product. Let’s hope for the latter. Pinholes at old folds. In handsome 19th century frame.

His travels began at Mexico, where he started a missionary journey that would last for 12 years, getting to know the land and local costumes. In 1640, once back in England, he converted to Anglicanism and was sent to the Antilles by Cromwell in an expedition to assess the state of the Spanish settlements, where he stayed until death found him in Jamaica. Illustrated with two frontispieces and 16 folding plates and maps; the views show local city views and natural history, the maps are of North America, Guadalupe, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Cuba, all giving a comprehensive view of the Caribbean and the plates include folding views of Cartagena, Porto Bello and La Havana.

WOLLEY, HANNAH.
Edward Midwinter., London. Circa 1720. Disbound, heavily worn, page edges frayed, lacks all before B1(page1) which has loss of text lower left. Hannah Woolley, sometimes spelled Wolley, (born 1622, England - died circa 1675, England) was a writer who published early books on household management and was probably the first to earn their living doing this.[1] Her mother and elder sisters were all skilled in "Physick and Chirurgery" and she learned from them . Nothing is known of her father. From 1639 to 1646 Wolley worked as a servant for an unnamed woman, almost certainly Anne, Lady Maynard (d. 1647), during which time she learned about medical remedies and recipes. She married Jerome Woolley, a schoolmaster, in 1646 and ran with him a free grammar school at Newport, in Essex. This is very near the Maynard family's house at Little Easton. In the school she put into practice her skills at "physick". A few years later, the Woolleys opened a school in Hackney, London [3]. She had at least four sons and two daughters, and the marriage was remembered by Hannah as a happy one.[2] Hannah was widowed in 1661 and from that year on began publishing books on household management. She covered such topics as : recipes, notes on domestic management, embroidery instruction, the etiquette of letter writing, medicinal advice, and perfume making. These proved to be very popular. Her first book The Ladies Directory was published at her own expense in 1661, and this was soon reprinted in 1664. Her second book The Cooks Guide, was printed at a her publisher's expense and is dedicated to Maynard' … [Click Below for Full Description]
