Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne?s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses.While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal.

As Also of the Great and Famous River Meschacebe or Mississippi, The Five Vast Navigable Lakes of Fresh Water, and the Parts Adjacent. London. 1727.

HOWES C826, "b". CHURCH 886. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 727/46. CLARK I:68. SABIN 17280. The third issue of this important work, first published in 1722, differing from the first issue only by the substitution of a new titlepage to make the tract appear more current to a contemporary audience. One of the first works in English to extensively describe the Southeast. Coxe, who claimed grants of much of the South, sought to arouse British concern over the area's occupation by the French. Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana are described. The large folding map is often lacking from copies of the book, including the copy at hand. The elder Daniel Coxe was physician to Charles II and Queen Anne; his son inherited his claims to grants in the South and produced this book. The text, based on memoirs of trappers and explorers, contains much information published for the first time and is credited with containing the first published proposal of a political confederation of the North American colonies.

The second (and perhaps a third) will consist like this, of several small Treatises in Prose, wherein a friend or two [Gay, Arbuthnot etc.] are concerned'.

Ideally located for the Atlantic slave trade, the islands grew prosperous throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, attracting merchants, privateers, and pirates. The end of slavery in the 19th century led to economic decline and emigration. Cape Verde gradually recovered as an important commercial center and stopover for shipping routes. Incorporated as an overseas department of Portugal in 1951, the islands continued to agitate for independence, which was peacefully achieved in 1975.; The islands of the Cape Verde archipelago were discovered by Genoese and Portuguese navigators around 1456. In 1462, Portuguese settlers arrived at Santiago and founded a settlement they called Ribeira Grande. In the 16th century, the archipelago prospered from the Atlantic slave trade. Pirates occasionally attacked the Portuguese settlements. Sir Francis Drake, an English corsair privateering under a letter of marque granted by the English crown, twice sacked the (then) capital Ribeira Grande in 1585 when it was a part of the Iberian Union. After a French attack in 1712, the town declined in importance relative to nearby Praia, which became the capit … [Click Below for Full Description]

VRIES, Klaas de.
Crone Library 373 & 374; cf. Bierens de Haan 5196 (1727 ed.); Cat. NHSM, p. 672 (1713 ed. plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone); STCN (1727 ed., plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone), WorldCat (1710 ed.). Very rare first edition of a standard practical manual on the art of navigation, by the virtually unknown Klaas de Vries, teacher of mathematics in Amsterdam. In the preface De Vries summarises the content of the book, which is profusely illustrated (mostly with diagrams) and includes letterpress tables of the tides, the time lag between the positions of the sun and moon for the years 1701-1710, the declination of the sun, etc., as well as 4 engraved plates of a compass rose, the use of the Jakob's staff, the "Platte Paskaart" and the "Wassende graadige paskaart". The work is concluded by sections on the winds one can encounter on the journey from Holland to the Dutch East Indies; how to sail to the East Indies in autumn, during monsoons, etc. Ad 2: The corrected Loots edition of tables of trigonometric functions and logarithms. The note to the reader explicitly states that the tables are based on those published by Adriaen Vlacq in 1665 (Tabulae sinuum .), but that they have been corrected, in part based on comparisons with the folio editions of Pitiscus for the trigonometric functions and Henry Briggs for the logarithms. The present copy lacks the tables of logarithms, but its collation and signing otherwise agrees with the somewhat irregular ones given in Crone. Good copy, the Schat-kamer complete with the errata leaf. The Tafelen lacks the two tables of logarithms (45 leaves, 2A1- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sn., Torino 1727 - Due volumi in 4° antico legatura coeva in pergamena, titolo calligrafico ai dorsi, sguardie, frontespizi, 319, 386 pp., due carte d'errata. Una doviziosa e quantomai interessante polemica che, partendo dalla collocazione nell'Ordine francescano del Beato Andrea Caccioli di Spello, fa una rivisitazione generale degli Ordini nati dal fecondissimo Seme di Francesco Giullare e Serafino di Dio. Seguendo il rincorrersi delle lettere e sostenendosi alle postille e glosse che le accompagnano si partecipa con attento interesse all'evolversi del Francescanesimo. In più che bello stato, uniche lievi mende alle legature. Di scarsa reperibilità.

Artist: Bonne Rigobert ( - 1795 ) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1780. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 39,5 x 41; - description : Map shows Madagascar and the island France, Mauritius and Bourbon, Reunion. Madagascar- officially the Republic of Madagascar , and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa. Madagascar was an important transoceanic trading hub connecting ports of the Indian Ocean in the early centuries following human settlement. The written history of Madagascar began with the Arabs, who established trading posts along the northwest coast by at least the 10th century. From about 1774 to 1824, Madagascar gained prominence among pirates and European traders, particularly those involved in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Many European sailors were shipwrecked on the coasts of the island, among them Robert Drury, whose journal is one of the few written depictions of life in southern Madagascar during the 18th century. The wealth generated by maritime trade spurred the rise of organized kingdoms on the island, some of which had grown quite powerful by the 17th century. Among these were the Betsimisaraka alliance of the eastern coast and the Sakalava chiefdoms of Menabe and Boina on the west coast. The Kingdom of Imerina, located in the central highlands with its capital at the royal palace of Antananarivo, emerged at around the same time under the leadership of King Andriamanelo.; - vita of the artist: Rigobert Bonne (1727ñ1795) was … [Click Below for Full Description]
