        ]. Designatio iconographica Oberleutensdorfenses Pannarias Officianas, vulgo Fabricas, penicilli arbitro repraesentans

      Prague: s.n., 1728. Hardcover. Very Good. Oblong folio [49 x 35.5 cm]. 20 engraved and numbered plates [plate marks between 33.5 x 23 cm and 35 x 26.5 cm], some with titles and captions printed above and below image using separate plates. Bound in contemporary sprinkled calf, boards slightly too long for leaves, suggesting at first glance remboîtage, although remnants of a manuscript title label on spine confirm the marriage is quite old as is the sewing; raised bands, marbled paste downs. Boards scuffed, patched and stained in places, corners renewed; repairs to spine. Broad-margined engravings, some marginal fingersoiling, minor marginal repairs to plates 2, 6 and 18, clean tear into plate 14 unobtrusively repaired; library stamp of Jesuit College at Linz on title page. Overall, very good. Only edition of the Designatio iconographica Oberleutensdorfenses - a very rare work of 20 large engravings illustrating the early 18th-century textile manufacture, industrial architecture, and labor practices of Waldstein Woolen Mills - privately printed in Prague in 1728 for the Habsburg Count Johann Joseph von Waldstein (1684-1731), the Mills' proprietor. The work commemorates his transformation of Oberleutesndorf in Bohemia (now Horní Litvínov, Czech Republic) from a small village of "thirteen miserable huts" in 1715 into a "company town" with 388 employees by 1728 (Freudenberger, 15, 61). Although little is known about the circumstances surrounding the publication of this work, great pride on the part of Waldstein is suggested not only by its scope but also by the quality of the engraving executed by well-known Bohemian artists - presumably at some expense - who produced both the designs and cut the plates. The proto-factories of the Waldstein mills, built in 1715, were among the first to collect laborers (who before would have worked in a cottage-industry system) within purpose-built structures, and so apparently predated even John Lombe's water mill at Derby (operational in 1721)-- a building often cited as the first example of true factory architecture. Remarkable is that Waldstein seems to have conceived this industrial venture ex nihilo, establishing a woolen factory where before there was scarcely a cottage industry, training workers specifically for his enterprise, and conceiving a novel infrastructure to fit his vision. ..........

        Atlas maritimus & commercialis; or, a general view of the world, so far as relates to trade and navigation / Sailing Directions for All the Known Coasts and Islands on the Glob, with a Sett of Sea-Charts

      James Knapton, London 1728 - This commercial sea atlas was published in 1728 as a guide to British global commerce. Today, it is a historically significant English overview of world trade during a rapid period of development of the British Empire's trading power. The atlas consists of two parts. The first is the "Atlas Maritimus & Commercialis" proper, which provides a geographical overview of the world as it relates to trade and navigation. It also gives an account of contemporary commerce, including the traded commodities of each country. The second part is "A General Coasting Pilot" by Nathaniel Cutler, which provides sailing directions. The volume was published anonymously, though the maps are often attributed to Sir Edmond Halley, the Astronomer Royal of Britain, who also wrote the prefatory note discussing the charts' use. The atlas's emphasis on commerce in addition to geography distinguishes it from "The English Pilot," the period's standard in maritime charts. It was also notable for covering the entire globe, including the south and west coasts of America, in one volume. This is an early issue of the Atlas, with A Chart of the Coast of Scotland on a globular projection. London: 1728.Sir Edmond Halley (1656--1742) was an English astronomer, geophysicist, mathematician, meteorologist, and physicist known for computing the orbit of the eponymous Halley's Comet. He was the second Astronomer Royal in Britain after John Flamsteed. John Senex (1678-1740) was a kind of Renaissance man of the 18th-century map world, working at times as a scholar, surveyor, engraver, astrologer, book seller and publisher of maps, atlases and globes. In a short period, he developed from an apprentice into one of the most important cartographers of the period and became a Fellow of the Royal Society of London, as well as Official Geographer to Queen Anne of Great Britain. A wonderful rarity about 'Globular Projection" maps which was invented by Halley, Harris and Senex. Includes the unforgettable large four sheet map "A Chart of the Atlantick Ocean Shewing the Coast from Texel to C. Cantin". Two parts in one volume. Illustrated with 53 of 54 fine uncolored copper plate maps, (last celestial chart is missing with a full size facsimile version provided from the British Library edition), and 5 fold-out diagrams tipped into the second text. Title page printed in black and red, foreword, preface, list of subscribers, and list of charts. Dedication page has a repair to the margin. "Atlas maritimus & commercialis," 340 pp. plus index. "General Coasting Pilot," 195 pp. plus maps. Page numbers written in ink. Elephant folio (21.25" x 13"), scuffing and corner wear to original brown leather binding, gilt spine in 8 compartments. Some toning and light scattered foxing to text and maps. Repairs to World Chart, North America chart and Celestial map along bottom fold out, small abrasion in margin of China map.

        Dictionaire Neologique

      Amsterdam - Michel Charles le Cene, 1728 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A French dictionary by Pierre-Francois Guyot Desfontaines. Third edition. In French. With a number of other works bound in. The Abbe Pierre Francois Guyot-Desfontaines (1685 in Rouen - 16 December 1745 in Paris) was a French journalist, translator and popular historian. Known today for his quarrels with Voltaire, Desfontaines can be regarded as the founder of the new literary criticism and journalism in France, insofar as he sought to found his criticism on aesthetic and ethical lines, rather than merely summarising, reproducing or paraphrasing. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, front board missing. Spine and rear board worn and rear joint cracked. Internally, firmly bound, bright with scattered foxing. Overall: FAIR.

        Morocco. the kingdoms of Fes, Morocco, Tafilalet and Sijilmasa . "STATUUM MAROCCA NORUM. REGNORUM NEMPE FESSANI, MAROCCANI, TAFILETANI ET SEGELOMESSANI secundum suas provincias accurate divisorum

      Africa: Nuremberg Homann, Johann Baptist 1728. Copper engraved map of Moroccoc by Johann Bapt. Homann from his "Grosser Atlas" . Original colour, verso blank. The map shows the ancient Kingdoms of Fes, Morocco, Tafilalet and Sijilmasa, with two views below of the imperial cities of Marrakesh and Meknes. The Canary Islands are shown and also a small inset map of the Madeira Arhipelago Decorative title cartouche with merchants and wild animals including a magnificent lion and strange serpent; with a vignette [somewhat faded ] of a sea battle off Tangier the two views include keys to the important edifices of the cities Meknes / Mequinetz was the capital of Morocco under the reign of Moulay Ismail (1672?"1727), before it was relocated to Marrakech. Fair impression, some what light to cartouche & vignette, prospects could be darker ; light soiling to blank margins; old tape to lower centrefold in blank margin causing discolouration [not entering image]. Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann 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 recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad. Africa Morocco Marrkesh Meknes Canary Islands
