1724. Antique print, titled: 'Carte Des Pays traverses par le Capne. Beerings depuis la Ville de Tobolsk jusqua'a Kamtschatka' - This is the first printed map to illustrate Vitus Bering's first voyage, representing the first broadly accurate cartography of the Russian Far East. In December 1724, Czar Peter the Great ordered the Danish-born Captain-Commander Vitus Bering (1681-1741) to lead the First Kamchatka Expedition (1725-30), in a effort to consoldate Russia's claims to regions in the Far East. Bering's party set out form St. Petersburg in January 1725, and after a grueling two-year journey, arrived in Okhotsk in Janaury 1727, on the Pacific Coast. The expedition then continued by ship to explore the massive Kamchatka Peninsula that runs down the East Coast of Siberia, and the shorelines beyond up to what is now the western side of the Bering Strait, dividing Asia from North America. As shown on the map, a series of forts, outposts and missions had already been established in the Russian Far East. While Bering's expedition was by no means the first expedition to traverse Russia, it was the first to explore the coast beyond Kamchatka and to properly map the various river systems of the eastern interior of Siberia and to chart much of the Pacific Coast. The present map extends from Tobolsk in the west, the traditional capital of Siberia, all the way eastwards to embrace the Kamchatka Peninsula and the coastlines up to the easternmost point of the Chukchi Peninsula. In between are depicted large stretches of the Ob, Irtysh, and Lena Rivers, their tributaries and Lake Baik … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coles, Elisha. (1624-1680) - Schoolmaster and Teacher of the Tongue
London: (1724). Printed for R. and J. Bonwicke, and R. Wilkin: and J. Walthoe, and T. Ward, 1724. - The final leaf contains tables of weight, etc. on the recto, and county statistics on the verso. Printed three columns to a page. - An English Dictionary is an important work that documents the beginnings of the English language and the pedagogical methods used to teach it to children. Coles is noted for his inclusion of earlier works including John Ray's Collection of English Words not Generally used (1673) and Richard Head's The Canting Academy (1673). Both works contained slang words and Head's specifically contained "canting terms" or criminal slang which Coles justified by saying "It may chance to save your throat from being cut, or (at least) your Pocket from being pickt." Therefore, it is perhaps the first complete snapshot of the complete usage of English both by the upper and lower classes. It is a seminal work in understanding the development of the English language in the early modern period, and is still used by lexicographers today. - Cole is best known for his works on teaching and lexicography including The Newest, Plainest and the Shortest Short-Hand (1674), The Compleat English Schoolmaster (1674), Nolens volens, or, You shall make Latin whether you will or no (1675), and An English Dictionary Explaining the Difficult Terms (1676). - Quite Rare. ; [338] pages, 8vo

Artist: Homann Erben ( - 1780 ) N rnberg; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca 1732. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 45 x 55; - description : Map shows the region of Naumburg; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROYAUMONT, Le Maistre de Sacy Sieur de
Paris, Etienne-Michel David, 1724. In-4° (27 x 21), pp. (20)+552, con una inc. su rame al frontespizio, due testate incise e 268 inc. su rame nel testo a mezza pagina, per lo più firmate "Duflos f.", raffiguranti scene dell'antico e nuovo Testamento; numerose iniziali in rame. Leg. piena pelle coeva, dorso a 5 nervi con ricchi fregi e titoli in oro. Qualche traccia d'uso, marginale, ma buon es. (6813) Nota opera che per la parte testuale sembra essere piuttosto di Nicolas Fontaine, pur rifacendosi alla traduzione della Bibbia di Le Maistre de Sacy, al cui nome viene convenzionalmente attribuita. Essa costituisce un ricchissimo repertorio iconografico di tutta la storia biblica, apparso per la prima volta nel 1670, alla cui illustrazione concorse in prima edizione anche Sebastien Le Clerc. Nelle sue varie edizioni fu fonte di ispirazione per innumerevoli artisti e illustratori e per tutto il campo delle arti figurative, tra la fine del XVII e l'inizio del XVIII sec., nel periodo del tardo barocco; le incisioni del ns. es. sono fresche e ben inchiostrate. Claude Duflos (1665-1737), fu assai attivo a Parigi come incisore nella produzione di soggetti sacri e profani. Le Blanc, II/150-2. Brunet, IV/1433. INTERNET/06813

Henri Sauval (1623-1676), avocat au Parlement de Paris et familier de la société précieuse, cité dans le Grand dictionnaire des Prétieuses de Somaize (1660) sous le nom de Sidroaste, recueillit pendant la plus grande partie de sa vie des matériaux dans les archives de la ville de Paris. Longtemps après la publication de son Histoire et recherches des antiquités de la Ville de Paris, l'ouvrage est resté une source pour les historiens et pour les architectes ; Victor Hugo lui-même en cite des passages entiers dans Notre-Dame de Paris et dans Paris à vol d'oiseau.

Bound in 20th century half vellum over marbled boards, black morocco spine labels detailing only the first work. Herodian's history, first printed 1502, was edited by Henri Estienne using the Latin of Angelo Poliziano. It was dedicated to the English poet and courtier Sir Philip Sidney, whom Estienne had befriended some years earlier. The second publication Estienne had dedicated to Sidney, ".he was concerned lest Sidney should be dissipating his intellectual gifts in the futile life of the court, and begins his dedication with three lines adapted from an epistle of Horace warning him against throwing away the gifts Apollo gave." (Buxton). The second part is the editio princeps of Zosimus' history, albeit only the first two books. Described by Gibbon as "a very questionable judge of merit", Zosimus wrote in Constantinople around 500 A.D. The second work is also an editio princeps, of Xiphilanus' abridgement of books 61-80 of Cassius Dio's history, originally produced in the 12th century and the only source for this part of the work.
