Homann, Johann Baptist
Nuremberg: : , c1720. Engraved double page, hand colored in outline mostly, large cartouche, 485 x 575 mm (23" x 19 1/2"). A few chips in margins, scattered minor browning, normal aging and toning; otherwise very good. Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724) was considered the father of German mapmaking, and in 1715 was actually appointed the Geographer to the Emperor. He founded his mapmaking business in 1702, and he would produce several major atlases between 1707 and 1716. The current map shows a fair amount of detail of Transylvania and her boarders, and includes a large colored cartouche featuring an eagle on the top, and a Roman soldier to the right.

London, 1720. Broadside, large folio, overall 10" x 14", etched, printed one side as issued. A rare Satire on the villa occupied by the Norwegian gem engraver and artist Charles Christian Reisen. The purpose of this satire is puzzling. It has been suggested that it is a joke or a sly dig at a fellow artist/engraver, or even a squib at the country gentry that went in for this king of subscription engraving of their country seat. It has also bee suggested that the part referred to as "The Office for Foxes Eggs" may infer a political skit against the Whigs. Exceedingly rare. BM. No 1695

Larned has high praise for this book: "[Neal's] work was superior to anything of the kind that preceded it.his attitude is that of one who wishes to remain impartial. He deals chiefly with political, religious, and military questions, but has an interesting chapter, largely condensed from Josselyn, describing the state of New England; and he has paid some attention to legislative history.His style is often sprightly and he displays a sense of humor. For some aspects of the revolution of 1688-1689 his work is still useful." Contains a few Indian words and sentences, with English translations. The map is an excellent depiction of New England from Long Island north. HOWES N26, "aa." PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 2726. LARNED 992. SABIN 52140. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 720/178.

First Edition! - "The existence of this tension between chemical and physical theories, and between practice and theory, is the reason why the controversy that arose between Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) and Georg Ernst Stahl (1660-1734) is so interesting. The crucial questions of the status and role of theories were at stake there, as well as that of the relations that chemistry should or should not keep with other disciplines, and notably with mechanics and medicine. In 1709, Leibniz had read Stahl's major medical work, published the year before, the True Medical Theory. He showed himself interested in the insights of Stahl, who was a famous chemist and an equally famous professor of medicine at the University of Halle, but at the same time disagreed with numerous theoretical statements contained in Stahl's work. In order to explain his disagreements, he sent a fifteen-page text to Stahl. Stahl answered with a hundred-page text, to which Leibniz replied with approximately thirteen pages. Stahl composed a last answer that was, however, never sent to Leibniz.

[ENGELBRECHT, MARTIN]
(Augsburg, c. 1720-1740). Six uncropped quarto-sized sheets for a peepshow with Engelbrecht’s name printed in the lower right corner of each sheet. These brilliantly hand-colored engravings show a gala festivity by the riverside with gaily-dressed men and women “jousting” in boats, some falling into the water. The “lances” are rendered harmless with rounded ends. The first and last sheets show a colorful crowd of onlookers. Engelbrecht was a German engraver and printseller who created “miniature theatres,” where a series of engraved, cut-out cards could be inserted into a holder to create a three-dimensional scene. Engelbrecht’s creations are thought to be the earliest paper theaters, a precursor to the popular accordion-fold peepshows of the nineteenth century. Included is a modern, wooden hinged stand with slots for viewing the peepshow. Small stain to one corner of the first sheet, still these are remarkably fine, very detailed, and bright examples of Engelbrecht’s work, with wide, totally uncut margins.

Talmud Bavli]
Johan Kellner, Frankfurt am Main, 1720. In Hebrew. 532 pages. 13.25 x 10 inches. Masekhet Nida; Seder Taharot [Talmud Bavli]. Great blind tooled leather binding, probably the original one. It still has two of the very detailed decorative corner brass metal plates and portions of the two clasps. All edges gilt and gauffered. Signature of previous owners on front blank, one of them dated with the Hebrew calendar year that is equivalent to 1802 C.E. This is only A PART of the entire Talmud. Very wide margins, excellent paper. Vinograd 381 + 390. On the first, second and last leaves, and a few interior leaves, is a purple ink impression of a rubber stamp: M. ARNSTEIN STAMPFEN. Stampfen is the German name for the town known as Stupava in Slovak and as Stomfa in Hungarian. It is located c. 15 kilometers from Bratislava. This volume was found in the nearby town of Dunaszerdahely (Dunajska Streda) after World War II. This volume weighs approximately 8 pounds without packaging, so shipping this to a destination outside the U.S. would be costly. Additional scans available upon request. Since the pages of this folio are much larger than the platen of my scanner, the scans do not show the entire pages. The reason this book, owned by a resident of Stupava, was found after the war in Dunaszerdahely is that all the Jews in the villages and towns around Duznazerdahely was transported to the tiny Dunaszerdahely ghetto. They brought with them the things most precious to them. When they were packed into cattle cars and then shipped to Auschwitz, some of their belongings were left behind in th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johann Michael Seligmann
- A very detailed hand colored ornithological engraving by Johann Michael Seligmann (1720-1762) from his book "Sammlung Verschiedener Auslandischer und Selener Vogel" which was printed in Nuremberg in1749-76. These engravings were after George Edwards and Mark Catesby's earlier prints. Overall this print measures 15 ½” x 10”. Mark Catesby (1682-1749) was born and educated in England, and was originally sent to Carolina by the Royal Society in 1722 as a botanist. From there he traveled to Florida and the Bahamas, returning to England in 1726 with a vast store of information on the wildlife he had observed. By the spring of 1729, he had completed the first part of The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands (1734-1746), but it was not until 1746 that the work was finally finished. It became the earliest colored book on American birds. George Edwards (1694-1773) was a contemporary of Mark Catesby. He was an ornithologist and bird illustrator who was heavily influenced by Catesby. Edwards is best known as the author of A Natural History, composed of two books: A Natural History of Uncommon Birds (1743-51) and Gleanings of Natural History (1758-1764). The plates that were contained within these works were valued for their landscape backgrounds, which were unusual at the time. To satisfy the tremendous demand for both these landmark works, Johann Michael Seligmann, a German publisher, issued a nine-volume compilation of the works of Mark Catesby and George Edwards.

London: , c 1720. To Her Most sacred Majesty Queen Anne this Prospect of Her Ancient City of Edenburgh... Framed size: 675 x 1305 mm. Copperplate engraving. Folds as issued. Has been cleaned, and had minor repairs to margins, otherwise in very good condition.

Because of its title, it is known widely as the 'Queen Anne View'. In the sky are a delightful pair of cherubs, either side of rococo style title. The panorama shows the city in one long line from (right to left) Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace. It was drawn by Leonard Knyff, a Dutch artist living in England, as was Johannes Kip, who was also a master engraver and a print dealer. Salisbury Crag and Arthur's Seat are viewed in the background. Interestingly, a number of buildings seen in this panorama still survive today; Canongate Church, St Giles Cathedral, Tron Church and Canongate Tolbooth.

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.

[JACOB, Giles]
Title within double-ruled border. xi, 283, [15] pp., one leaf of ads. Small 8vo, later sheep (neatly rebacked, some faint browning), red morocco lettering piece on spine. "In the Savoy" [London]: printed by Eliz. Nutt and R. Gosling, 1720. First edition and very scarce on the market. Jacob (1686-1744), legal and literary author (including much pornography), is best known for The Country Gentleman's Vade Mecum (1717). After serving an apprenticeship to the law, he became Secretary to the Hon. W. Blathwayt, a celebrated courtier in the reign of William and Mary. Jacob, a land-owner with a keen interest in farming, was prompted to write the present work "as a companion to the purchaser...to render every thing plain and intelligible, that persons of all capacities may be enabled to judge when they are secure, and faithfully dealt with by the practisers of the law, in everything that shall commonly occur" (pp. viii-ix). He cautions, topically, "on the late flourishing business in Exchange Alley, occasion'd by the great rise of the South-Sea Stock, such extraordinary fortunes have been acquir'd by merchants and others, that the immediate value of lands...is considerably advanc'd, even to thirty five and forty years purchase, near the city of London; but this cannot be expected to be a standard rule for the future, or to times in general" (p. xi). Jacob also experimented with satire in The Rape of the Smock, published in 1717, a scatological parody of Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock. Pope later retaliated in the 1728 edition of The Dunciad (see ODNB). Ear … [Click Below for Full Description]

MOLL, Herman (1654-1732)
London: H. Moll, D. Midwinter, Thos. Bowles, Philip Overton, [circa 1720]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, slightly toned, marginal foxing, centerfold reinforced. 25 1/4 x 40 1/4 inches. A fine example of Moll's intriguing map of Asia, depicting the continent just before the greatest era of European imperial expansion This sensational map embraces the entire Asiatic landmass, as conceived by Europeans in the first quarter of the eighteenth-century. During this period, rival powers, including Britain, France, the Netherlands and Portugal vied for trade dominance in this region rich in spices and precious gems. Most of India was ruled by the Mughal Empire; China was then under the Qing Dynasty; and the mighty Shogun ruled Japan. The British were the dominant traders in India and the Dutch held the lead in the Spice Islands. The map features cartographic insets detailing some of the most commercially important Asiatic locales including; the Hellespont, connecting the Black Sea to the Mediterranean, running past the Ottoman capital of Istanbul; the harbour of Bombay; the Hoogly River, running past modern day Kolkata in Bengal; the Chinese trading islands of Amoy and Chusan; as well as an inset of the Arctic coast of Asia, which some still hoped would one day reveal a 'Northeastern Passage' from Europe to the Far East. The general map shows that parts of the continent lying to the northeast of Honshu, Japan were scarcely known. "Iessu," or Hokkaido has a nebulous shape, connected to an equally mysterious Siberia. This map includes an important feat … [Click Below for Full Description]

London - Thomas Horne, 1720 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A copy of the scarce Merchant's Map of Commerce, an extrememly detailed survey of commodities, currencies and rates of exchange from the 1600s. ScarceFourth EditionBound in early 18th century full calf leather with blind embossed detail to the boards. With Advice Concearning Bills of Exchange at the rear. With hand-written receipt dated 1772, for a payment of Thirty Six Pounds and Ten Shillings. No title page. Matches the ESTC record for this title and edition, ESTC citation number R1436. Copies of the first edition can command up to $50,000 but this later edition (printied without the mapps of the first edition) is more reasonable at up to $5000. Here because the title page and first page are sadly lacking and the binding needs some attention (though it is a good early binding) we are asking a much lower sum. Roberts, Lewes (15961641) was a merchant and author. In 1638 Roberts published his The Merchants Mappe of Commerce. As an apprentice he had begun to collect material for this comprehensive guidebook, which provided not only the standard topographical information sought by English travellers abroad, but also full details of local commodities, currency, weights and measures, and rates of exchange. It was an immediate success with the mercantile community, and revised editions were published in 1671, 1677, and 1700. (Sonia P. Anderson, ODNB) This work 'represents the economic views of England of the seventeenth century more accurately than any other work of that age' (Menger).

MOLL, Herman (1654-1732)
London: printed for H. Moll, 1720. Engraved map (sheet size: 25 1/2 x 41 1/8 inches.), hand-colored in outline, with small irregularly-shaped engraved onlay titled "Advertisement" with 14 lines of text mounted to an area to the west of Florida and the Bahamas. In good condition apart from some marginal browning and spotting, occasional small marginal tears. A previously unrecorded first state of this important map, printed before the addition of the "Advertisement" to the plate. The outline colouring of the map has been specially applied to reflect the political realities in North America at the time. The unique feature of the present map is that the very important "Advertisement" or key which explains this colouring is only present here as a pasted-on slip. On all other recorded copies of this map this text is an integral part of the printed map. The "Advertisement" reads, in part: "All within the Blew Colour of this Map, shews what is Claim'd by France under the Names of Louisiana, Mississipi &c. according to a French Map published at Paris with the French King's Privelege. The Yellow Colour what they allow ye English. The Red, Spain. The English Claim the Property of Carolina … Hence any body ma[y] see, how much they would Incroach &c.".
