        Le Maître à Danser. Qui enseigne la maniere de faire tous les differens pas de Danse dans toute la régularité de l'Art, & de conduire les Bras à chaque pas

      Engraved frontis. & 59 finely engraved plates (four are folding). xxiv, 271, [1] pp. 8vo, cont. polished calf (very well rebacked to match, a few signatures slightly browned), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: J. Villette, 1725. First edition of "the most authoritative exposition of the early 18th-century French style of dancing, a style which was performed throughout Europe because of its elegance and refinement. The book was read and approved by Louis Pécour, dancing-master for the Paris Opéra, and may thus be taken to represent the central French practice of its day. It gives a clear and detailed account of such matters as the correct way to stand, move and ask a lady to dance, etiquette at court balls and the movements and steps of dances, as well as a complete description of the minuet. It is directed primarily towards the needs of social dancing, and does not discuss virtuoso practices peculiar to ballet. The book, which was several times reprinted, contains many excellent drawings which clarify the verbal descriptions."-New Grove, Vol. 15, p. 573. The largest of the folding plates depicts the grand ball of the King. This plate is frequently missing. Rameau (fl. early 18th century), was dancing-master to Elizabeth Farnese (1692-1766), who became Queen of Spain on her marriage to Philip V in 1714. Fine copy.

      8 p.l., 193 pp. Small 4to, cont. sheep-backed patterned paper over thin wooden boards (three corners a little rounded, slight browning due to the quality of the paper). Copenhagen: P.J. Phoenixberg, 1725. First edition of the very rare catalogue of the private library commenced by Anne Gøye (1601-81). Upon her death, the collection was passed on to her daughter-in-law Karen Brahe (1657-1736) who continued to make additions. The collection - one of the greatest of the early Danish private libraries - remains intact in the Landesarchiv at Odense and contains many unique Danish imprints and other rarities. The present catalogue describes about 2000 titles. For full accounts of the history of the formation of this library see Victor Madsen, "Karen Brahes Bibliotek i Odense" in Nordisk Tidskrift för Bok- och Bibliotheksräsen, 6 (1919), (Isak Collijn, ed.), pp. 171-85 and Nielsen, Danske Privatbiblioteker, I (1946), pp. 96-123.

        Bibliothecae Bridgesianae Catalogus: or, a Catalogue of the Entire Library of John Bridges, Late of Lincolns-Inn, Esq; Consisting of Above 4000 Books and Manuscripts in all Languages and Faculties; particularly in Classics and History; and especially the History and Antiquities of Great-Britain and Ireland

      which will begin to be sold by Auction on Monday the seventh Day of February 1725/6, at his Chambers in Lincolns-Inn, No 6. Engraved allegorical frontis (slightly cropped at outer margin). 3 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 199 pp. 8vo, attractive blue morocco-backed boards, spine lettered in gilt. London: Printed by J. Tonson & J. Watts, 1725/26. The English issue of the sale catalogue of the library of John Bridges (1666-1724), historian of Northamptonshire. Bridges left his fine library to his two brothers, who prepared an inventory catalogue in 1725 for sale. Their efforts were apparently fruitless as the books were sent to auction before the year was out. There are two issues of the present auction catalogue: the English issue with the title in English and a frontispiece, and a second issue with two title-pages, one in Latin and another in French. The continental issue was prepared in order to attract bids from dealers and collectors from Europe. It is generally not recognized that attempts were made by English auctioneers in the early 18th century to generate business from the Continent. Dibdin called Bridges "a notorious book-collector." The library contained over 4000 books and MSS. It was notably rich in the history and antiquities of Great Britain and Ireland. There was a scandal surrounding the sale as Bridges's two brothers were quite obviously bidding up the books. Humphrey Wanley, who was a buyer at the sale for Robert Harley's library, described the sale as "very knavish." A very good and crisp copy. ? D.N.B., II, pp. 1229-30-"the catalogue of his library was long retained as valuable by curious collectors." Fletcher, English Book Collectors, pp. 156-58. See Pollard & Ehrman, p. 212, Table XXV, & no. 222 for the inventory catalogue of earlier in the same year. Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 193 & 206.

        Bibliotheca Duboisiana. Ou Catalogue de la Bibliotheque de feu son Eminence Monseigneur le Cardinal Du Bois; Recueillie ci devant par Monsieur l'Abbe Bignon

      La vente publique se fera le 27. Aoust 1725. par Jean Swart, et Pierre de Hondt. Four vols. 8vo, cont. vellum over boards (covers of Vol. I lightly stained, spines dust-soiled, lightly foxed throughout as usual). The Hague: J. Swart & P. de Hondt, 1725. With its almost 30,000 lots this was the largest sale ever held in any country up to 1725, a record not broken until the Thott sale (Copenhagen: 1789-1795) and the Heber sales of the 1830s. The Du Bois sale lasted for nearly two months. This extraordinary library was the creation of the Abbé Jean-Paul Bignon (1662-1743), who was for many years secretary of the Académie des Sciences. When, in 1718, he was appointed Bibliothécaire du Roi, a position he occupied until 1741, he sold his library of approximately 50,000 volumes in order to avoid a conflict of interest. The buyer was the financier John Law (1671-1729), of "Mississippi Bubble" fame. Financial reversals caused Law to almost immediately resell the library for 50,000 livres to Cardinal Du Bois (1656-1723), the immensely rich but ill-famed first minister during the minority and under the reign of Louis XV (his misdeeds may have been exaggerated by the Duc de Saint-Simon, who hated him). Guigard and others state that Law's sale of the library took place in 1723, but it cannot have been later than December 1720, when Law secretly left France after the Mississippi Bubble had burst. Following Du Bois's death, the library was sold for 65,000 livres to "the booksellers of Paris" who immediately sold it to one "Guiton," who, in turn, sent it to The Hague for auction. This library contained many famous rarities, including editiones principes of Aristophanes, Homer, and Pliny, incunabula printed on vellum, Spanish romances of chivalry, and illuminated manuscripts. Many of the finest books and manuscripts were acquired by a collector named Milsoneau. The Marquis de Paulmy acquired them from Milsoneau and today they are the foundation of the library of the Arsenal. Fine set and priced throughout. ? Guigard, I, pp. 238-39 & 270-71. Peignot, p. 96. Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 18, 102, 108, 113, 129, 207, 228, & 239.

        Bibliotheca Fayana, seu Catalogus Librorum Bibliothecae de Cisternay Du Fay

      digestus & descriptus a Gabriele Martin…cum Indice Auctorum alphabetico. Engraved frontis. port. of the collector & an engraved vignette on title. 6 p.l. (incl. port.), xxii, 450, 107*, [1] pp., [27] leaves of index. 8vo, cont. mottled calf (corners a bit worn), spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: G. Martin, 1725. One of the finest French 18th-century collections; the sale catalogue of the library of Du Fay (1662-1723), is considered to be the best of those compiled by Gabriel Martin, who made Paris the international center for the sale of rare books by auction. Du Fay, after losing his leg in the bombardment of Brussels in 1695, devoted the rest of his life to collecting rare books and manuscripts. Buying from all the leading dealers in Europe, he formed a superb museum of literary rarities. Du Fay was advised by his friend and notable book collector Michel Brochard, professor at the Collège Mazarin, who was the author of the notice in Latin preceding the catalogue. Du Fay became an outstanding connoisseur, a friend of eminent savants and authors, including Fontenelle, and was in contact with the best booksellers of Europe. Many of his books ultimately found their way to Count d'Hoym. Priced throughout in a contemporary hand. 4414 lots, including early MSS. and bindings. Very nice copy with the rare portrait. From the library of Jean Viardot. ? Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 451. Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions…1643-1830, 22. Peignot, p. 96-"Catalogue bien fait d'une bibliothèque riche et bien composée." Pollard & Ehrman no. 269. Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 207, 226, & 239.

EM COIMBRA: Na Officina de JOSEPH ANTUNES DA SYLVA Impressor da Universidade; & Familiar do S. Officio. ANNO DE M. DCCXXV. [1725] In 4º (de 29x19,5 cm) com [32], 503 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele, cansada e com coifa superior danificada. Exemplar com título de posse rasurado na época sobre a primeira página de dedicatória e no colofon; leve vestígio de humidade no pé da obra e na dianteira das folhas em quase todas as folhas; e leves trabalhos de traça marginais sem afectar a mancha gráfica. Inocêncio I, 395. ?Para rectificar e adicionar o pouco que Barbosa nos deixou acerca deste escritor, registarei aqui o resultado obtido das investigações quanto á pessoa e feitos daquele distinto medico português. Resultado, cuja maior parte se funda em documentos que ainda existem, sendo o resto havido em tradições conservadas nos próprios lugares; e parece portanto dever merecer toda a confiança. D?essas tradições consta que Braz Luis de Abreu fora exposto em Coimbra, e não nascido em Ourem, como diz Barbosa no tomo I assignando-lhe por pais Francisco Luis de Abreu e Francisca Rodrigues de Oliveira, e dizendo mais que ele nascera a 3 de Fevereiro de 1692. Alguém lhe forneceu os meios para cursar em idade própria o curso de medicina da Universidade, no qual chegou a formar-se, e não há dúvida em que exercera depois a clinica na cidade do Porto, pois que ele mesmo se intitula medico portuense no frontispício do seu Portugal Medico de que logo falaremos. Diz-se que na primeira idade, em um brinco de rapazes, perdera um olho, o qual substituiu depois por outro de vidro, feito com muita arte, provindo-lhe daí a alcunha de olho de vidro por que era conhecido em vida, e que ainda se conservou muitos anos depois da sua morte. Casou pelos de 1718 com D. Josepha Maria de Sá, natural de Viseu e filha do doutor Antonio de Sá Mourão, e dela houve cinco filhas e três filhos. Passados quatorze anos depois que viviam juntos, o marido e a mulher por motivos que totalmente se ignoram, convieram em separar-se. Se algum dos nossos romancistas actuais se resolvesse a tratar o assumpto, afigura-se-me que a vida deste nosso médico, com os curiosíssimos incidentes que ficam apontados, lhe dariam sobeja matéria para a fábrica de uma composição onde, mediante a lição dos escritos que nos restam de Braz Luis, poderiam fundir-se habilmente espécies mui interessantes, pare daí resultar obra de cunho verdadeiramente nacional. Sol nascido no ocidente e posto ao nascer do sol. Sancto António Portuguez. Epitome histórico e panegírico da sua admirável vida e prodigiosas acções. Coimbra, por José Antunes da Silva 1725 fol. - E por segunda vez, Lisboa, por José da Silva da Natividade 1754. 4.° de XXIV-461 pag. Possuo um exemplar d?esta segunda edição, desconhecida de Barbosa e de que o Sr. Figaniere também se não fez cargo na sua Bibliogr. Hist. Custou-me 600 réis. Os exemplares da edição de fólio regulam, creio, de 800 a 960 réis. O estilo desta obra é de um culteranismo requintado: superabunda em conceitos metafóricos, e está portanto bem longe de servir de modelo: mas não deixa de ser um livro curioso, e se alguém tiver a paciência de o ler todo, parece-me que não dará por perdido o tempo que nisso empregar.?

        Langwirige Lampen, oder Sonderbare [...] Erfindung, Lampen auf eine leichte Arth also zuzurichten, dass sie geraume Zeit [...] fortbrennen. [...]. Nebst angehängter Nachricht von denen Antiquen [...], vorgestellet von J. G. G. Hübschen. Leipzig & Frankfurt, 1725.

      1725. (6), 110 pp. With engr. frontispiece (M. Rein sc.). Modern marbled boards. 8vo. First edition in book form (parts had been published in 1720 in the periodical "Berlinische und Cölnische ordinaire Post-Zeitung"): descriptions of lamps capable of burning for prolonged periods without having to be refueled, invented by the Saxonian court mechanic Andreas Gärtner (1654-1727). Gärtner, a cabinet maker and mechanic, had learned his trade over twelve years travelling throughout Germany and Italy (Venice, Bologna, and Rome). By 1686 he was royal cabinet maker to the Dresden court, and later also royal mechanic. Delighting in complicated machanical models and devices, he soon became known as the "Saxon Archimedes". Unfortunately, most of his works perished in a fire at the Wackerbarth Palace in 1728. Gärtner's famous world clock (c. 1700), boasting 365 dials, has survived and still draws crowds at the Dresden Zwinger. The frontispiece shows some of his newly-invented lamps. - Rare; KVK locates 4 copies in Germany (Erlangen, Augsburg, and Munich); OCLC locates no copies in the U.S.; not in COPAC. - Insignificant browning. A very good, clean copy. Thieme/Becker XIII, 37ff.

      1725. La bottega di produzione, pubblicazione e vendita di materiale cartografico della famiglia fu fondata da Joachim Ottens (1663 - 1719), ma ebbe il periodo di maggiore sviluppo e produzione tra il 1720 ed il 1750 sotto la guida dei figli Reiner (1698 - 1750) e Joshua (1704 - 1765). La produzione della bottega Ottens è enorme; include copie di praticamente tutte le mappe sino ad allora prodotte e disponibili, raggiungendo il numero di oltre 800 lastre, raccolte in 15 volumi di atlanti. Le carte sono caratterizzate dal fatto di essere finemente colorate a mano con colori accesi, mentre scarsa è la loro reperibilità sul mercato. Il seguente gruppo di carte è tratto dal Atlas Maior, pubblicato intorno al 1730. Incisioni in rame, finemente colorate a mano in epoca, ampli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Rare. La mappa è una riduzione di quella realizzata da Pierre Mortier, a sua volta ispirata da Nicolas Sanson.

        ORLANDO INNAMORATO.

      1725In Fiorenza [pour Naples], sans nom d'éditeur [Lorenzo Ciccarelli], 1725. Grand in-quarto (218 X 278) vélin doré à coutures apparentes, auteur, titre et date d'édition calligraphiés à l'encre noire au dos (reliure de l'époque) ; titre en rouge et noir avec vignette gravée, (3) ff., 343 pages. Cerne de mouillure claire, plus marqué aux premiers feuillets ; infimes défauts aux coupes et à un angle. EDITION NAPOLITAINE publiée par Lorenzo Ciccarelli, caché sous le pseudonyme de "Cellino Zecclori", avec la fausse mention du lieu d'édition de "Florence" pour "Naples". BELLE EDITION, imprimée à deux colonnes en caractères italiques, souvent citée comme la meilleure, de ce poème chevaleresque composé par Matteo Maria BOIARDO en l'honneur du duc Hercule II d'Este. Les deux premières parties publiées en 1483 rencontrent un franc succès auprès du public ferrarais. L'entrée de l'armée de Charles VIII en Italie en 1494 met le pays en état de guerre et interrompt la composition de la troisième partie du poème. Cette épopée romanesque est tirée de la chronique de Turpin, et l'on y voit figurer les Agramant, les Astolphe, les Gradasse, les Rodomont qui sont devenus des types immortels. Comme Luigi Pulci, Boiardo s'inspire du cycle de Charlemagne mais son poème apporte une nouveauté fondamentale puisqu'il y mêle aussi des éléments du cycle des chevaliers de la Table Ronde. Ainsi, les prouesses guerrières, héritage épique de la matière française, acquièrent la dimension romanesque et merveilleuse propre à la matière bretonne. D'autre part, comme le titre l'annonce clairement, dans cette nouvelle épopée l'amour prend une dimension toute particulière. Loin de l'amour incarné comme un idéal moral par les compagnons du roi Arthur, l'amour dont fait preuve Roland est bien réel et le rapproche de la condition des hommes ordinaires. Les thèmes de l'épopée s'entremêlent, parfois même à l'intérieur d'un même chapitre. On peut cependant en dégager trois principaux : la guerre entre les chrétiens et les sarrasins, la figure d'Angélique et ses soupirants et l'amour entre le sarrasin Rugiero et la chrétienne Brandiamante. (BRUNET, I, 1051 - GRAESSE, I, 470). BEL EXEMPLAIRE, dans sa fraiche reliure en vélin de l'époque, ornée d'une belle patine dorée. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        Voyages de Jean Ovington: faits à Surate, et en d'autres lieux de l'Asie et de l'Afrique

      Etienne Ganeau, Paris 1725 - "Having joined the East India Company as a chaplain, Ovington was assigned to the Company's vessel Benjamin for a voyage to the East Indies in 1689. Ovington stopped briefly in Bombay and then settled at Surat for two and a half years. His narrative describes Bombay as a sink of debauchery filled with whores and drunkards. Of Surat Ovington commented at length of the Mughal influence, on religious and cultural characteristics of the Hindus and Parsees, and the nature of the fakeer or Mohammedan religious mendicant. In passing Ovington described and defended the drinking of tea for which he was later attacked by Alexander Hamilton. Of the greatest interest, however, is Ovington's outline of the organization and operation of the English factory at Surat. Of the early narratives, Ovington's possesses greater interest and far wittier prose". (Riddick) These two volumes, respectively 323 pp and 318 pp, comprise the first French translation from the original English of 1698. Both volumes retain their original calf bindings with tooled and gilt spines, marbled endpapers, and red-stained text block edges. The bindings show wear and Volume I shows loss at the spine ends, but the bindings are intact and unrestored. The contents are remarkably clean, crisp, and bright with no spotting.

        Carte de Territoire de Padouan, et le dogado de la Repub. De Venise

      1725. La bottega di produzione, pubblicazione e vendita di materiale cartografico della famiglia fu fondata da Joachim Ottens (1663 - 1719), ma ebbe il periodo di maggiore sviluppo e produzione tra il 1720 ed il 1750 sotto la guida dei figli Reiner (1698 - 1750) e Joshua (1704 - 1765). La produzione della bottega Ottens è enorme; include copie di praticamente tutte le mappe sino ad allora prodotte e disponibili, raggiungendo il numero di oltre 800 lastre, raccolte in 15 volumi di atlanti. Le carte sono caratterizzate dal fatto di essere finemente colorate a mano con colori accesi, mentre scarsa è la loro reperibilità sul mercato. Il seguente gruppo di carte è tratto dal Atlas Maior, pubblicato intorno al 1730. Incisioni in rame, finemente colorate a mano in epoca, ampli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Rare. Carta geografica comprendente la provincia di Padova e Venezia, arricchita da tre cartigli in basso contenenti la pianta di Padova, il particolare della Laguna e del forte di Malamocco. La mappa deriva da quelle di Bartolomeo Clarici e di Giacomo Cantelli. The workshop founded by Joachim Ottens (1663 - 1719), lived its golden age between 1720 and 1750, directed by his sons Reiner (1698 - 1750)and Joshua (1704 - 1765). The production of the workshop is massive; it includes also all the maps that ahd ever been realized until then, with 800 plates collected in 15 atlases. The maps are characterized by the fact that they are all hand coloured, but they are quire rare to be found. The following group is taken from the Atlas Maior, published around 1730. Copper engraving, fine contemporary hand colour, wide margins in excellent condition. Rare. Geographic map depicting the territories of Padua and Venice, decorated with three cartouches on lower part with the city plan of Padua, a detail of the Lagoon and the fort of Malamocco. The map derives from those realized by Bartolomeo Clarici and by Giacomo Cantelli. Amsterdam Amsterdam Tooley p. 479. 450 390

Lemery and Tournefort, divided into three classes, vegetable, animal and mineral; with their use in Physics, Chymistry, Pharmacy, and several other Arts. London, [William Bowyer] for R. and J. Bonwicke, and R. Wilkin [et al.], 1725.

      1725. 4to. Two vols. in one. (24), 419, (9) pp. Title page printed in black and red. Text in double columns. With 86 numbered engr. plates (often with multiple images per plate). Old panelled calf, neatly rebacked to style with original gilt label laid down, leading edges gilt. Second edition in English, the first having appeared in two volumes in 1712. William Bowyer printed both this second edition (500 copies) and the 1737 third edition. The original French edition was published in 1694, and drew upon Pomet's own travels, as well as his expertise and business as a practicing pharmacist. Contains many notices of oriental medicinal plants and herbs, including the famous "Balsam of Mecca": "The Turks, who go a pilgrimage every year to Mecha, bring from thence a certain dry white balsam, in figure resembling white copperas calcin'd, especially when it is stale. The person who made me a present of about half an ounce, assur'd me, that he brought the same from Mecha liquid, and that the smell is the same as observ'd before. The same person likewise did testify to me that it was as good as Balm of Gilead" (p. 205). - Pomet (1658-99) was appointed druggist to Louis XIV, and in the introductory notes to the online exhibition at the University of Wales, "The Weird World of Pierre Pomet," the curator observes: "Parisian Pierre Pomet's pharmacopoeia [...] was intended not only as a handbook for the medical trade but also as a rough guide to the exotic for armchair travellers. Much of its appeal, then as now, comes from the illustrations which pepper the book: pictures of weird animals and weird people doing weird things in weird countries." - Early bookplate ("IKJ") and ownership signature ("H. Jones), occasional dusting or minor offsetting. A very good, crisp copy. ESTC T111989. Wellcome IV,142. Garrison-Morton 1827.1 (French ed.). Hunt II, 428 (1712 ed.).

Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. In the wake of Jeremias Wolff's bigger view, this work presents many topographical references. Leopold was a modest engraver and publisher in Augsburg; the series of city views, from which this one is taken, has been published in a very limited circulation, which means these works are very rare.

        Lexicon Technicum: or, An Universal English Dictionary of Arts and Sciences: explaining not only the Terms of Art, but the Arts Themselves. The Fourth [Second] Edition

      folio2 vols.[928];[392], 44, [242], 120, [50]pp., portrait plus 14 plates (6 folding), contemporary calf with nesting dyed panels on sides defined by double blind fillets and with blind tooling at corners etc., some minor marginal spotting or damp marks, closed tears (no loss) in Oooo3 and Kkkkk4, narrow strip of leather torn from rear cover of one volume, very handsomely and sympathetically rebacked and refurbished at edges and corners. Nice copy. First published in 1704-10, and the first general scientific encyclopaedia in any language. As he outlines in his preface, Harris (ca. 1666-1719) drew for the work upon many of the greatest contemporary authorities - on Newton in physics, astronomy, and mathematics; on John Ray and Joseph Tournefort in botany; and on Halley, Boyle, Nehemiah Grew, John Woodward, John Wilkins, and William Derham for other subjects. In vol. II was printed for the first time Newton's only independent chemical paper, De Natura Acidorum (1692), together with an English translation by Harris. Newton's important mathematical papers which were appended, in Latin, to the first edition of his Optics (1704) but which were dropped from later editions of that work, made their first appearance in English in vol. II of this work. Vol. II also includes an interesting early account of Savery's "fire engine" [ie. steam engine], and the famous folding plate illustrating its use. The combination in this set of vol. I in fourth edition and vol. II in second edition was usual for copies sold at this time. This was the last edition in its original form, for afterwards it was reissued with all the articles arranged under one alphabetic sequence, and not as in these early editions in two, one for each volume. This edition is greatly expanded by the addition of extensive mathematical tables.

Seltene erste Ausgabe. Die bedeutende frühe Bibliographie für Inkunabeln und alte Drucke bis zum Jahr 1664 wird z. B. auch noch im Quellenverzeichnis des GKW (I, XXVIII) aufgeführt. "Quelque incomplet et mal ordonné que soit ce livre, les 'Annales typographici' de Panzer, qui s'arrêtent en 1536, ne peuvent le remplacer, parce qu'il renferme un grand nombre de dissertations et de notes curieuses dont le bibliographie de Nuiremberg n'a point fait usage, notes qui seules forment plus de la moitié de l'ouvrage" (Brunet). Die zweite Ausgabe, die 1733 in Amsterdam erschienen ist (und deren erster Band im ersten Teil hier in der Einbandausstattung der Bde. 2-5 beiliegt, s. u.), wird in einigen Bibliographien (MNE, Graesse) als Teil IV des Werks bezeichnet, ist aber tatsächlich eine ergänzte Neuausgabe des ersten Bandes.

        Bologna. Bononien

      1725. Delineata sulla scia della più grande veduta di Jeremias Wolff, l'opera offre quaranta riferimenti topografici. Il Leopold, era un modesto incisore ed editore di Augsburg; la sua serie di vedute di città, da cui questa incisione è tratta, venne pubblicata con pochissima tiratura, rendendo quindi le opere particolarmente rare. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. In the wake of Jeremias Wolff's bigger view, this work presents many topographical references. Leopold was a modest engraver and publisher in Augsburg; the series of city views, from which this one is taken, has been published in a very limited circulation, which means these works are very rare. Copperplat, in excellent condition. Augsburg Augsburg 300 200
