        Asia cum omnibus Imperiis Provinciis, statibus et Insulis Luxta.

      Artist: Seutter Matthias ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1728 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 49 x 56; - description: Map shows total Asia; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

        The Dunciad. An Heroic Poem. In Three Books

      Dublin, Printed, London Reprinted for A. Dodd, [London] 1728 - First edition. Engraved frontispiece (Griffith Variety 1 with "Dunci-" on second line of pendant). viii, [ii], 51, [1] pp. Collation: A-E^6 F^2. 12mo. The distinguished Hagen-Pforzheimer-Slater copy of the first edition of Pope's satirical masterpiece, a mock-epic reply to his critics (primarily Lewis Theobald) and other hack writers, as well as a broader critique of George II and Walpole. Published anonymously under a misleading imprint suggesting a Dublin first edition (which does not exist). Editions followed in 1729 (Dunciad Variorum), 1742 (A New Dunciad), and 1743 (Dunciad in four books).This 12mo impression is the first and precedes the 8vo printing of the same year. Bound with the second edition of Edmund Curll's Key, which spells out Pope's allusions and provides full names where Pope only supplies a first initial. Thus the close of the first stanza ("Still Dunce the second reigns like Dunce the first?") is glossed as "Meaning Mr. Theobald succeeds Mr. Settle, if he has not a worse Meaning," which of course he has, referring to the accession of George II the previous year.Also bound with the first edition of The Progress of Dullness, which takes Pope's original title to The Dunciad and the one used to announce a sequel on the final leaf of the first edition.

      London: for J. Worrall, 1728. - Duodecimo in 6s (158 x 100 mm). Contemporary panelled sheep, spine unlettered, remains of paper titling label tipped onto title fore edge. Spine ends and corners worn, light surface abrasion to boards. Inner hinges cracked but sound. Ownership inscription of Ralph Forster dated 1735 to front free endpaper, with his annotations from chapter IV on. A few pen trials and the odd mark; an attractive copy. Title printed in red and black, woodcut initials and vignettes. First edition of a scarce work on the history of painting. According to a manuscript note to page 34, presumably by Mr Forster, much of the work apparently derives from Dryden's Ancient Masters of Paintinge, Mr Forster supplying page references to Dryden's work to several pages here, with extensive cross-referencing to the Chronological Account of the Painters since the time of Cimabue at the end of the work, which the author ascribes to Mr Richardson's Essay on the Theory of Painiting of 1715, Mr Forster instead supplying numerous page numbers for Dryden's work instead.

        REGIA VIA CRUCIS

      Antwerp: Widow of Henricus Verdussen, 1728. A pious work written by a Benedictine monk of Utrecht and dedicated to the Spanish Carmelite St. Theresa of Avila, this volume explains in meditation and often wonderfully pleasing illustration the Way of the Cross, which leads one to heaven. The narrative follows the thoughts and prayers of one Staurophila (i.e., "lover of the cross") as he meditates on a series of biblical passages with references to the source of Christ's affliction. As a symbol of how the cross is to be thought of as an integral part of one's everyday life, the emblematic cuts here consistently show at least two young innocents in various relationships with the cross, often putting it to ingenious uses--for example, as an oar, as a hammer at the forge, as the pump handle of a well, or as a structural component of a wagon. If one could put aside the brutality associated with crucifixion, these plates would not only constitute considerable achievements aesthetically, but would also be absolutely delightful. Although he worked closely with his father, Philipp, and his brother, Theodoor, especially in the production of plates for the Moretus Press, Cornelis Gallé (1576-1656) surpassed them both because of, in Bryan's words, "a correctness of design and a freedom of execution." One mark of Cornelis' prominence can be seen in the fact that he was chosen to engrave most of the drawings done by Rubens for the Moretus printing house during the first half of the 17th century. Like other engravings produced by the Gallés, the cuts in this volume are artful in design, extraordinarily delicate in their execution, and full of patiently elaborated detail. As various commentators have noted, this seems to be the first important edition to appear after the original printing of 1635; the book can be found on the market, but scarcely in better internal condition than seen here. This copy also comes with a distinguished provenance. It was owned by the brother-in-law of Victor Hugo before entering the library of Robert Hoe (1839-1911), founding member and first president of the Grolier Club. According to Beverly Chew, Hoe's library was "the finest [America] has ever contained." He acquired illuminated manuscripts, early printing (he owned a Gutenberg Bible on paper and one on vellum), fine bindings, French and English literature, and Americana, and when his library was sold in 1911-12, it fetched nearly $2 million, a record that held until the Streeter sale more than 50 years later.. 183 x 108 mm. (7 1/4 x 4 1/4"). [xvi], 404 pp., [12] leaves (indexes), with the two blanks at the end called for by Landwehr. 19th century Jansenist red levant by Capé (stamp-signed on front turn-in), raised bands, gilt titling on spine, gilt dentelles. Decorative woodcut initials and tailpieces, engraved title page after Peter-Paul Rubens, and 38 VERY CHARMING FULL-PAGE EMBLEMATIC ENGRAVINGS IN THE TEXT BY CORNELIS GALLÉ. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Victor Foucher, front free endpaper with morocco label of Robert Hoe (see below). Landwehr 272; Praz, p. 361; Funck, p. 328 (citing the first edition of 1635); Brunet III, 10. Covers slightly soiled and with three small, faint dampstains, just a hint of wear to joints, otherwise a sound and pleasing binding; THE TEXT EXTREMELY CLEAN, SMOOTH, AND FRESH, with just a hint of foxing on a few pages.

        A Chart of the White Sea and Gulf of Finland] [;] A Chart of the Sound [;] A Map of the Rivers Elbe and Weser [;] The River Duna and the Harbour of Archangel.

      J. & J. Knapton W. & J. Innys London 1728 - Four engraved sea charts on one double-page map sheet. Good condition. Dimensions: 50 x 61 cm. Published in the 'Atlas maritimus & commercialis: or, a General View of the World, so far as Relates to Trade & Navigation'. The Atlas maritimus can be used as an index of English trading activity at this period, since detailed insets and harbour plans emphasise those areas of greatest commercial significance. Although the author of the text is anonymous, Daniel Defoe is thought to have contributed to it, and Halley, the Astronomer-Royal, added a prefatory note discussing the use of the charts; it is therefore sometimes catalogued under his name. It has also been attributed to Harris, Senex and Wilson, those name appears on one chart. Senex was certainly responsible for one of the atlas's innovations, the globular chart of Western Europe whose projection according to the title-page was "authorized by letters patent". The atlas was purely commercial and was not a real rival to the 'English Pilot': unlike the Pilot it compressed global coverage into one book, as well as describing the the south and west coast of America, omitted by the former.

        Love in Several Masques. A Comedy, as it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal …

      London: John Watts, 1728. First edition. [viii], 82, [2] pp. 8vo. Disbound. First three leaves detached. In a custom gray card folder. First edition. [viii], 82, [2] pp. 8vo. Fielding's First Play. First edition of the 20-year-old Fielding's first play and his second surviving publication. "Fielding's career as dramatist began auspiciously enough when, as an unknown author in his twentieth year, his first play, the comedy Love in Several Masques, was staged by Cibber at Drury Lane-an extraordinary favour due probably to the influence of Lady Mary, to whom Fielding dedicated the published version" (ODNB). In the Preface Fielding acknowledges the difficulty of competing for audiences with Gay's Beggar's Opera and Vanburgh's The Provok'd Husband. Love in Several Masques would run for only 4 nights, and Fielding would shortly depart for Holland to study, his next theatrical works not appearing until 1730. Cross III, p. 290

("ardeo, persevero, spero") [Online] Dictionary of Art Historians: "The treatise was republished with other works by the Richardsons in a French language edition in 1728. Johann Joachim Winckelmann (q.v.) and the painter theorist Anton Raphael Mengs (1728-1779) mention it as an inspirational work. The work became so popular among the wealthy class that it virtually functions as a "wish list" for those assembling collections."

      - Horn & Schenkling 20145; Landwehr, Coloured plates 182 & 202; Nissen, ZBI 3808 & 3808a. One of the finest and best-illustrated works on butterflies and moths ever published, here together with the continuation by Snellen van Vollenhoven. Work on the publication probably began around 1728 and stopped only two hundred years later, when the author of the third series died in 1928, leaving his work unfinished: A. Brants, Nederlandsche vlinders beschreven en afgebeeld (The Hague, 1905-1928). He published only ten parts of the first volume of the third series, not included in the present set. That unfinished third series contained only 10 plates, while the present two series together contain 600 plates plus the 8 frontispieces where butterflies, moths, larvae and pupae on plants form a lovely frame around the title. Most plates show a single species of butterfly or moth in flight and on a plant, along with the larva and pupa, and many add the egg and further figures with anatomical details. "The most important work on Dutch lepidoptera" (Landwehr).Some annotations and inserted notes. With occasional spotting, but otherwise in very good condition and largely untrimmed, preserving most deckles and with some bolts unopened. Bindings rubbed, some spines damaged. A celebrated and beautifully illustrated lepidopterological classic.

        Taferelen der Voornaamste Geschiedenissen van het Oude en Nieuwe Testament, en Andere Boeken, bij de Heilige Schrift Gevoegt, door de vermaarde kunstenaars Hoet, Houbraken, en Picart getekent. (Three volumes) Figures de la Bible

      Pieter de Hondt, The Hague 1728 - Unique hand-colored copy of this early 18th Century collection of biblical illustrations. With 212 hand-colored copper engraved plates, 29 of which are double paged, and many hand-colored headpieces, tailpieces, vignettes and initials throughout the text. Folio, 44 by 28 cm. [2], 148, [2]; [2], [149]-280, 14; 160 pp. Engravings are based on paintings by Bernard Picart, Gerard Hoet and Jacob Houbrahen. Each plate has captions below rendered in five languages: Dutch, English, German, Latin, French, English and Hebrew. Accompanying each plate is also two pages of text, this given entirely in Dutch, which goes into greater detail the biblical story depicted in the plate. This work is thus not a bible per se, but rather, a compilation of the major biblical stories, each of which is shown in an elaborate, minutely detailed, often graphic illustration. Two volumes are devoted to the old testament, one, to the new. Of the contributors, the best known today is surely Bernard Picart, whose majesterial "Cérémonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde" was a landmark in a wider understanding of the world's religions and remains to this day a highly prized plate book. A half-title plate in the first volume bears the title of "Figures de la Bible" and is credited to Picart as the publisher, and sited in Amsterdam, 1720. We note one other anomaly: the title page spells "Taferelen", the Dutch word for "scenes", with a single "e" in its last syllable, while elsewhere in the text it is spelled as "Tafereelen". The half brown morocco binding is probaby from the nineteenth century. It remains impressive, notwithstanding some rubbing and minor abrasions. There is scattered light soiling within, and a few very minor corner chips. Overall, a stunning, and special, set.
