        Plattegrond van Amsterdam - Covens en Mortier, ca. 1722.

      "Amstelodami veteris et novissimae urbis accuratissima delineato."Plattegrond van amsterdam met uitgebreide legenda en gezicht vanaf het IJ. Met de hand gekleurde kopergravure, omstreeks 1722 uitgegeven door Covens en Mortier. Afmetingen (prent) 49 x 58 cm. Kwalitatief hoogwaardig gelijst.Amsterdam groeit sterk in de 17e en 18e eeuw. Verschillende uitgevers spelen hierop in en er verschijnt om de zoveel jaar een nieuwe plattegrond. Het laten maken van een geheel nieuw kaartbeeld is kostbaar evenals het graveerwerk en vaak werden daarom de koperen platen, die voor eerdere uitgave reeds hadden gediend, hergebruikt. Ze werden waar nodig gecorrigeerd en bijgewerkt.Deze plattegrond, in dit geval uitgegeven door Covens en Mortier, was door hen al een paar jaar eerder op de markt gebracht. Daarvoor, in 1622 werd het ontwerp al eens gebruikt door Nicolaes Visscher. Telkens staan er nieuwe gebouwen op en veranderen stukken stad.In 1721, startte Cornelis Mortier (1699-1783) een uitgeverij met zijn zwager Johannes Covens (1697-1774). Onder de naam Covens & Mortier zetten zij het werk van vader Pieter Mortier (actief vanaf 1685) voort. In 1774 werd Johannes Covens opgevolgd door zijn zoon, Johannes Covens Jr. (1772-1794). Toen ook Corneille Mortier in 1783 en uiteindelijk Johannes Jr. in 1794 overleed, nam Johannes? zoon Cornelis de firma over onder de naam Mortier, Covens & Zoon. Tenslotte werd Cornelis opgevolgd door diens zoon Cornelis Johannes Covens (1806-1890). De firma werd in 1866 opgeheven.Het Amsterdamse uitgevershuis Covens & Mortier was in kwantitatief opzicht de grootste kaartenhandel van zijn tijd. Op haast industri?le wijze bracht Covens & Mortier duizenden cartografische uitgaven op de markt. De diverse firmanten waren vrijwel zonder uitzondering begiftigd met een groot commercieel talent. Massaal kopieerde men bijvoorbeeld toentertijd moderne buitenlandse kaarten. Deze kaarten werden vervolgens voor een goedkopere prijs dan de originelen over heel Europa verspreid. Ook liet Covens & Mortier oude 17de-eeuwse Nederlandse koperplaten namaken. Zo bereikte men met minimale investeringen een maximaal rendement.Referentie: Catalogus van Amsterdamse plattegronden, door A.E. d?Ailly (1934), nr. 262.Prijs: ?3.150,- (BTW margeregeling, incl. lijst).

        Herengracht Amsterdam - Goll van Franckenstein (1722-1785).

      HERENGRACHT AMSTERDAMTekening in pen en gewassen inkt van de hand van Johann Edler Goll van Franckenstein sr. Afm. 24,3 x 31,8 cm.Goll van Franckenstein (1722-1785) was koopman, bankier, geacht kunstverzamelaar en amateurtekenaar die zich in 1751 in Amsterdam vestigde.Afgebeeld zijn de bruggen over de Herengracht, van de huidige Raadhuisstraat tot aan de Leidsegracht, gezien van noord naar zuid. Linkvoor, om de hoek, bevindt zich de Warmoesgracht, een klein grachtje tussen het Singel en de Herengracht dat in 1895 verdwenen is bij de aanleg van de huidige Raadhuisstraat.De tekening is gemaakt van een zeer laag standpunt in de as van de gracht, waardoor de breedte en de weidsheid van de watervlakte worden benadrukt. Waarschijnlijk heeft Goll deze tekening gemaakt vanuit een bootje dat afgemeerd lag voor het huis Herengracht 158, het woonhuis van Goll. De gracht maakt hier een bocht zodat het huis zich min of meer in de as van het afgebeelde stuk van de gracht bevond.Provenance:Vererfd aan Johann Goll van Franckenstein jr. (1756-1821)Vererfd aan zijn dochter Catharina Antonia Bijleveld (1842-1898)Vererfd aan haar zoon Emil Pieter Bijleveld (1842-1898)Vererfd aan zijn zoon Frank David Bijleveld (1879-1960)Tentoonstelling:Museum Beeckestijn -?Is getekend J.

        Voyages de François Coreal aux Indes Occidentales...

      Paris: Robert-Marc d'Espilly, 1722. Two volumes, octavo, with four folding maps and eleven plates (as per collation for the Paris edition given by Borba de Moraes); very good in contemporary full polished calf, spines gilt with raised bands and morocco labels. A curious volume of travels including excerpts from early navigators including Sir Walter Raleigh, Abel Tasman and Fernándes de Quiros.The first volume purports to be a French translation of the travels of a Spaniard in the Americas in the later seventeenth century. However, no such Francisco Coreal is known to exist, and it is generally believed to be a fanciful compilation of other travel accounts spiced up with amorous interludes and vivid descriptions of the native inhabitants.The second volume is of some interest to the Pacific discoveries, with excerpts from true voyage accounts. These include Sir Walter Raleigh in Guinea and John Narborough's expedition through the straits of Magellan to the Pacific coast of the Americas. Of special interest is an extract of 18 pages titled Relation d'un voyage aux Terres Australes inconnues tireé du Journal du Capitaine Abel Jansen Tasman. The second volume closes with two short extracts pertaining to Quiros in the Pacific (being the relations of Alvaro de Mendanga and Juan de Torquemada).This set includes a curious folding map of the south polar hemisphere, presenting the southern continent as 'Terres Australes' (with the usual Dutch landfalls) conjoined with New Guinea and de Quiros' imagined 'Terre du S. Esprit'.Voyages de François Coreal aux Indes Occidentales was published in both Paris and Amsterdam. The Dutch edition is in three volumes with a different collation. Borba de Moraes notes that the Paris edition was issued with title-pages bearing the details of different booksellers. Slightly worn at extremities.

        Dell'Ingegnoso Cittadino Don Chisciotte della Mancia.. Et hora nuovamente tradotta con fedeltà, e chiarezza, di Spagnuolo in Italiano, da Lorenzo Franciosini Fiorentino.. In questa Terza Impressione corretta, e migliorata con la Traduzione de versi Spagnuoli, non tradotti nella prima edizione

      per Antonio Groppo, 1722. 2 voumi. in-8° antico (167x112mm), pp. (14), 683, (4) di indice; (16), 727; legatura ottocentesca m. pelle verde con titolo, segnatura di volume e decori in oro ai dorsi. Vignette xilografiche ai frontespizi, testatine, finalini e capilettera ornati in xilografia. Usuali bruniture e fioriture, qualche restauro di poco conto al verso del primo frontespizio. Bell'esemplare nell'insieme. Terza edizione della prima traduzione in lingua italiana del sommo capolavoro cervantino, assai rara e censita in soli tre esemplari in ICCU. La prima edizione della versione del Franciosini era stata impressa fra il 1622 e il 1625 dal Baba di Venezia (la prima menzione italiana, tuttavia, risale al 1615 ed è nella "Secchia rapita" del Tassoni), seguita da un'impressione romana del 1677. La versione, non priva di pregi stilistici, è assai libera, in quanto sopprime i versi spesso intercalati nel romanzo e introduce svariati mutamenti nel testo di Cervantes per eludere alcuni ostacolo frapposti dalla censura, alterando anche il nome dei personaggi. La traduzione del letterato toscano fu alla base di tutte le edizioni del Chisciotte pubblicate in Italia durante i secoli XVII e XVIII. La versione del Franciosini fu alla base di tutte le edizioni italiane settecentesche del capolavoro cervantino. Palau, II, p. 171. Cfr., per il Franciosini: Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, L, pp. 155-157; Dante Bernardi, Lorenzo Franciosini primer traductor del Quijote al italiano, Los problemas filològicos, 31 (1993), p.151-181; Id., El Don Chisciotte de Lorenzo Franciosini (1622) un caso de (auto)censura, in Atti delle giornate Cervantine (1995), pp. 93-104.

        Traité d'optique sur les reflexions, refractions, inflexions, et les couleurs, de la lumiere. . . Traduit par M. Coste, sur la seconde edition Angloise, augmentée par l'auteur.

      Montalant, 1722. Finely printed with decorative woodcut headpiece, initials, and engraved chapter vignettes depicting author's optical experiments (white on black background - - see sketch of vignette in Guerlac, pp. 158 and on dust jacket of his book). With 12 folding engraved plates. Full vellum; faint water stains on the blank fore - edge of a few leaves. Bookplate of Arnold Thackray as well as a very interesting contemporary wax armorial stamp used as a bookplate. An especially nice, crisp copy, important for its illustrations and typographical execution. This second French edition is greatly superior to the first Amsterdam edition of 1720 (which was published in 12mo.) not only textually but for its beauty. According to Guerlac, it is the handsomest edition of the Opticks printed in Newton's lifetime, or indeed later. This edition, quite rare, was edited by Pierre Varignon, and included changes proposed by de Moivre and authorized by Newton.

        L'Antiquite Expliquee, et Representee en Figures

      1722. MONTFAUCON, Bernard de. L’Antiquité Expliquée, et Representée en Figures. Paris: Florentin Delaulne, et al., 1722, 1724. Five volumes in ten, and five volume supplement. Fifteen volumes in all. Folio (12 by 17 inches), contemporary full mottled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, marbled endpapers. $18,500.Second edition, revised and corrected from the 1719 first, with the five-volume 1724 supplement. Magnificent set of Montfaucon’s landmark work on classical archaeology, with nearly 1400 engraved plates (including approximately 250 double-page and folding plates). A splendid copy in beautiful full contemporary calf-gilt.De Montfaucon (1655-1741), a Benedictine of the Congregation of Saint-Maur devoted to historical and ecclesiastical scholarship, pioneered the studies of Greek paleography and archaeology. “His Antiquité… surveyed in fifteen volumes the social and artistic aspects of the ancient civilizations; and the unfinished Monuments de la Monarchie Française tried to do the same for early French history. These works can well be called foundation stones of scientific archaeology” (Printing and the Mind of Man 175). In preparing L’Antiquité… de Montfaucon received contributions and assistance from many of the greatest European collections of antiquities of the period; most of these are credited adjacent to each of their respective illustrations. “As this work has never been completely replaced, it still conserves its long-standing value… Beautiful copies are not easy to come by” (Brunet 28960). “In spite of the imperfections that are impossible to avoid in such an immense work… one cannot deny that it has contributed to the spread, particularly in France, of the interest in archaeology, or that he did not advance this science among us” (Biographie Universelle). Text in French and Latin. First published in 1719, in an edition of 1800 copies that sold out in two months despite its enormous size and expense. Cicognara 2493. Armorial bookplate on verso of each title page. Owner signature, dated 1837. Bookplate of Philadelphia attorney John T. Montgomery, with a presentation bookplate of the Philadelphia Club indicating that he presented this set to the Club in 1888.Interior generally clean. Expert restoration to contemporary calf, mostly joints and spine ends. A monumental work, most desirable in beautiful contemporary calf-gilt.

Schonnebeek figurant l'expérience de Brunner sur des chiens. Nouvelle édition de cet ouvrage, à l'origine de la découverte du diabète. La première a paru en 1683. Johann Conrad Brunner (1653-1727) était un anatomiste suisse. Voulant savoir si le pancréas était vital pour l'organisme, il procéda à son ablation sur des chiens, en 1683. Les animaux ne moururent pas, mais furent victimes d'une grande soif et de polyurie. Brunner découvrit ainsi les symptômes du diabète, démontrant pour la première fois le lien entre l'organe et la maladie. Auréole en tête d'ouvrage, rousseurs claires.

        L'art de convertir le fer forgé en acier, et l'art d'adoucir le fer fondu, ou de faire des ouvrages de fer fondu aussi finis que de fer forgé

      Paris, Michel Brunet, 1722. 1722, 1722, in-4, de [20]-566-[2] pages et 17 planches, basane marbrée de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné de caissons dorés, pièce de titre en maroquin bordeaux veau marbré de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre fauve, tranches rouges, Première édition de cet ouvrage qui constitue le résultat de plusieurs années de recherches. En effet, dans la première partie du livre, Réaumur décrit la manière dont il est parvenu, par de longues et nombreuses expérimentations, à trouver l'alliage métallique du fer, c'est à dire à inventer l'acier. Dans la seconde partie, "l'art d'adoucir le fer fondu", il rend compte de ses travaux qui lui permirent de découvrir la possibilité de rendre la fonte malléable en la chauffant au rouge vif de minerai de fer. Réaumur pose ici les bases de l'industrie de l'acier en France; en outre, il s'agit aussi de sa contribution la plus importante et la plus originale à la technologie industrielle de son temps. 17 planches repliées illustrent les expériences décrites, ainsi que les outils, machines et matériaux utilisés ; les deux dernières planches montrent des réalisations d'ouvrages de ferronnerie (marteaux de porte cochère, clefs et flambeaux).

A. 1723). - Die Titelvignette mit einem Hüftbild Cartouches. - Louis Dominique Cartouche (eigentlich Garthausen; geb. 1693 in Paris) machte seinem Vater, einem redlichen Weinhändler, bereits in jungen Jahren durch vielfältige Kleinkriminalität schwere Sorgen. Im zarten Alter von 12 jagte er ihn davon, Louis Dominique wurde bald Hauptmann einer normannischen Räuberbande, kehrte nach Paris zurück und versetzte mordend und raubend mit seinen Spießgesellen die Stadt in Angst und Schrecken, war aber bei den einfache Leuten populär, die ihn als eine Art Robin Hood glorifizierten. Von einem Bandenmitglied verraten, die hohe Belohnung des Pariser Magistrats war zu verlocken, wurde Cartouche am 15. Oktober 1721 in einer Schenke gefangen genommen. Nach schwerer Folter erfolgte die Hinrichtung auf der Place de Grève mittels Rädern. - Titelblatt unten etwas fleckig, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar!

        Harmonia Mensurarum

      Cambridge University Press, Cambridge 1722 - Published in 1722 this book is in poor condition but it is complete. The front and rear boards are detached, very worn around the edges and in places on the surface the leather is flaking off. The front cover is still attached to the front end paper which is also a title page. They are covered in embossed leather, the pattern is still visible. The leather on the spine is very fragile and split in parts. Inside the front cover a name plate is tipped, the name on it is John Ord of Lincoln's Inn and dated 1761. On the facing title page another previous owner's name is written in ink. There are some very tanned pieces of paper just inside which have no visible printing on them. The next page is blank and detached. That is followed by the full title page which is attached. Pp107 - 125 are also detached. All the script on the title page is in Latin as is the whole text. Internally there is some light foxing but the book is remarkably clean and bright for the most part, given its age. It is illustrated with mathematical drawings. Roger Cotes had been a student of Isaac Newton's and had worked closely with him in the preparation of the second edition of Principia. Sadly Cotes died from a fever in 1716 at the age of 33 prompting Newton to say "if he had lived, we might have known something". For the last nine years of his life he was the first Chair of the Plumian Professorship at Cambridge University. He published only one scientific paper during his lifetime entitled "Logometria" in which he successfully constructs the logarithmic spiral. His successor at Trinity College Cambridge, Robert Smith edited his mathematical papers posthumously, and these are published here. This book contains "the first version of the Newton-Cotes formula for evaluating the area under a curve of nth degree and a method for evaluating the most probable result of a set of operations that closely approaches that of least squares." Professor Morgan called it "the earliest work in which decided progress was made in the application of logarithms and of the properties of the circle of the calculus of fluents."

      22 x 28.5cm. Part One: 1047 pages / Part Two: 501 pages, with illustrations from steel engravings. Original leatherbound hardcover with gilt lettering and marbled endpapers and edges. Stronger signs of external wear to spine and edges but binding solid and internal text and illustrations in very good condition. John Brown of Haddington (1722 1787), was a Scottish divine and author. His works include The Self-Interpreting Bible, The Dictionary of the Bible, and A General History of the Christian Church. The Self Interpreting Bible was Brown's most significant work, and it remained in print (edited by others), until well into the twentieth century. The objective of providing a commentary for ordinary people was very successful. The idea that the Bible was "self-interpreting" involved copious marginal references, especially comparing one scriptural statement with another. Brown also provided a substantial introduction to the Bible, and added an explication and "reflections" for each chapter. This edition, published in 1847, contains numerous beautifully detailed illustrations from steel engravings.

        Voyages de François Coreal aux Indes Occidentales...

      Paris: Robert-Marc d'Espilly, 1722. Two volumes, octavo, with four folding maps and eleven plates (as per collation for the Paris edition given by Borba de Moraes); very good in contemporary full polished calf, spines gilt with raised bands and morocco labels. A curious volume of travels including excerpts from early navigators including Sir Walter Raleigh, Abel Tasman and Fernándes de Quiros.The first volume purports to be a French translation of the travels of a Spaniard in the Americas in the later seventeenth century. However, no such Francisco Coreal is known to exist, and it is generally believed to be a fanciful compilation of other travel accounts spiced up with amorous interludes and vivid descriptions of the native inhabitants.The second volume is of some interest to the Pacific discoveries, with excerpts from true voyage accounts. These include Sir Walter Raleigh in Guinea and John Narborough's expedition through the straits of Magellan to the Pacific coast of the Americas. Of special interest is an extract of 18 pages titled Relation d'un voyage aux Terres Australes inconnues tireé du Journal du Capitaine Abel Jansen Tasman. The second volume closes with two short extracts pertaining to Quiros in the Pacific (being the relations of Alvaro de Mendanga and Juan de Torquemada).This set includes a curious folding map of the south polar hemisphere, presenting the southern continent as 'Terres Australes' (with the usual Dutch landfalls) conjoined with New Guinea and de Quiros' imagined 'Terre du S. Esprit'.Voyages de François Coreal aux Indes Occidentales was published in both Paris and Amsterdam. The Dutch edition is in three volumes with a different collation. Borba de Moraes notes that the Paris edition was issued with title-pages bearing the details of different booksellers. Slightly worn at extremities.

This work of Vignola is one of the most published books in architectural history and amongst the most influential ever written, due to the clarity of the author"s practical system for constructing columns in the five classical orders. After this studies we can easily distinguished the classical styles from one another by their expression in the columns as Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, and Composite. The first edition, published in 1562, contained only the first 32 plates. Vignolo was one of the three great architects of the Italian Renaissance alongside Serlio and Palladio. He worked in Italy and France, under the patronage of the powerful Farnese family, Pope Julius III, and King Francis I of France at Fontainebleau, but is best known for his work with Michelangelo on St. Peter"s Basilica in Rome.

The interiors are relatively less detailed.<br><br>Delisle map of 1722 was the first to correctly show the source of the Nile at Lake Tana (Dambea) rather than the earlier Ptolemaic concept. It also correctly shows the Senegal and Niger Rivers separated.<br><br>The southern African gold mining regions of Monomotapa (supposed location of King Solomon's mines) and Monoemugi are identified. The early mapping of Lake Malawi, which would officially be discovered only a hundred years later, is noted. A beautifully engraved title cartouche adorns the top left corner with another cartouche with an advertisement in the bottom left. Map is engraved by J. Kondet.<br><br>The map is in good condition with minor wear and toning along the original centerfold. Minor foxing at places. Full margins. Deaccession stamp verso "Western Reserve Historical Society"<br><br> The Amsterdam publishing firm of Covens and Mortier (1665-c. 1862) was established by Cornelius Mortier and Jean Covens. Together, the two republished the works of great 17th and early 18th century Dutch and French cartographers such as De L'Isle, Allard, Jansson, De Wit, and Ottens. The firm quickly grew into one of the largest and most prolific Dutch publishing outfits of the 18th century and enjoyed a long and prolific life under a variety of names.<br><br> Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726) was a legendary French cartographer known for introducing a new standard of accuracy into 17th-century mapmaking. He was one of the cartographers who propelled the French school of map-making away from Dutch dominance. The French school emphasized science and accuracy over ornament. His family took over the business and kept publishing maps well into the late 18th century. He used astronomical observations to determine locations and draw more precise coastlines. He continually updated his maps and dispelled prevailing geographical inaccuracies throughout his life.
