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.

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.

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.

He also printed many maps that were often out of print, which he reissued. Some of his most popular maps were of the African continent, detailing locations such as Morocco and Madagascar. Many of his later works were printed for the general public in French and Dutch.Pieter van der Aa began his career at Leiden in 1683 as a Latin trade publisher, publishing classical texts pertaining to medicine and science. As he progressed, he began to publish atlases and maps, compiling numerous multi-volume collections of works. His ambition to become Leiden's most famous printer was fulfilled in 1715 with his appointment to head printer for the city and its university. One of Pieter van der Aa's largest compilations relates to the history of Italy and Sicily, an area of immense personal interest. Though he took credit for many of his compilations, several, such as the Dutch collection of travels to the East and West Indies, were admittedly simple improvements to others' works.

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.

         Autograph Letter Signed Portsmouth, July 10, 1789 to John Langdon, New York City

      folio, two pages of a four page bi-folium, some splits along folds, remains of sealing wax on integral address leaf, docketed "Jo Whipples Letter." In very good, clean and legible condition. Joseph Whipple, collector of customs at Portsmouth, (brother of General William Whipple 1730 - 1785 revolutionary War General and Signer from New Hampshire) writes to John Langdon (1741 - 1819) Senator and first President pro-tem of the Senate, thanking Langdon for his help and influence in obtaining a post in the new government and comments upon the recent establishment of the Federal court and judicial system. Langdon, a Portsmouth native, was the right person to ask as he was also a friend of the President, George Washington. "Dear Sir I have the Honour this moment to receive your favour of the 5th & am much obliged by your kind assurances of attention to my business and also for having seasonably lodged my name with the President - I should have wrote now to him agreeably to your intimation but am discouraged from the consideration of his having no personal knowledge of me and that it might on that account appear and interested application which might operate to my disadvantage - and I conceive also that your influence with the President on which I have rested my expectation is such as I need wish no other. - But if you conceive that it would be of use to hand my name with your recommendation to Mr. Vice President, to Mr. Morris, Mr. R H Lee, Mr. Dalton, your Colleagues or others as you may think proper, I should consider myself further & greatly obliged - but I think your interest requires no aid - as it will of course be represented by you that I am in the office of Colltr. - To some of the names that I have mentioned I am known - others of them were formerly either officially connected or intimately acquainted with my Brother on which account I should have applyd to them for their influence - I imagine also that all appointments will be completed tin a few days if not by this. - You will hear that the Judiciary bill is not relishd this way, I have not seen it, but think that the plan of one Judge to the District Court would be an objectionable one to most people in the Northern states - and the joining the Prov of Maine to N. H. districts no less so to N. H. - However the Acts may be finishd I hope & trust they will terminate in a system that will insure Peace and a happy Government.." John Langdon (brother of Woodbury Langdon) was a merchant, Delegate and Senator from New Hampshire. He was active and prominent supporter of the revolutionary movement, member of the Continental Congress 1775-76, participated in the Battle of Bennington and commanded a company at Saratoga and in Rhode Island. Member of the State senate 1784, President of New Hampshire, 1785, 1788; again a member of the Continental Congress 1787, delegate to the Federal Constitutional Convention in 1787; member of the state ratifying convention elected to the United States Senate and served from March 4, 1789 until March 3, 1801. He was elected the first President pro tempore of the Senate on April 6, 1789, in order that the Senate might organize to count the electoral vote for President and Vice President of the United States.

         Opticks: or, a Treatise of the Reflections, Refractions, Infections and Colours of Light. The Fourth Edition, corrected.

      London: Printed for William Innys, 1730. London:: Printed for William Innys, 1730., 1730. Sm. 8vo. [viii], 382, ads. [2] pp. 12 engraved folding plates [Book I: pt. 1, 5 pls.; Book II: pt. 2, 4 pls.; Second Book: Pt. I: 2 pls.; Book III: 1 pl.]; minor ms. annotation on p.1 [GT-xxx – ownership initials?]. Original full gilt-ruled calf, modern red gilt-stamped leather label; joints cracked (incl. middle of spine), kozo repairs to hinges, corners showing, short worm trail effecting rear board and extending (diminishing) to p.295, mild foxing. Notation on ffep "OT". Very good. NEWTON'S FINAL EDITION OF THE OPTICKS: Fourth edition, corrected. "This is the final edition, revised by Newton." "This new edition is carefully printed from the Third Edition, as it was corrected by the Author's own Hand, and left before his Death with the Bookseller." – Advertisement. "Newton's contributions to the science of optics – his discovery of the unequal refractions of rays of different color, his theory of color, and his investigations of 'Newton's rings,' to mention only a few of the most noteworthy – place him among the premier contributors to that science. … Today we recognize that his work on optics offers unique rewards in its exciting, innovative conjunction of physical theory, experimental investigation, and mathematics, and in the revealing glimpse that it provides of a crucial period in the evolution of experimental science." – Alan E. Shapiro, The Optical Papers of Isaac Newton: Volume 1, (1984), p. xi. This edition contains the full set of 11 Observations, and 31 queries or questions. As written by the respected Newton scholar, Richard S. Westfall, "From the perspective of natural philosophy, the 'Quaestiones' were the first of the series of speculations that form the warp on which he wove the fabric of his scientific career. Throughout his life, his speculations turned on a limited set of crucial phenomena which seem to have functioned in his eyes as keys to the understanding of nature. Nearly all of them appear in the 'Quaestiones.'" – Westfall, p. 96. "Whereas the Principia is a mathematical work involving intricate geometrical relationships and only a handful of major experiments, the Opticks overflows with detailed accounts of reflection and refraction, the separation of white light into the colors of the spectrum, the manner of the eye's operation, the formation of images by lenses, the colors of the rainbow, the construction of the reflecting telescope, and much more. Unable to contain himself, the author introduces many subjects that have little or nothing to do with the behaviour and analysis of light: metabolism and digestion, the circulation of the blood, the creation of the world and the Great Flood of Noah, the scientific method, even the images that haunt the dreams of madmen. Moreover, Newton wrote the Opticks in English, making its contents accessible to a far wider audience than the Principia, whose classical Latin had stymied many potential readers. His friend John Locke, who had only months to live, was baffled by the earlier work, but read the Opticks 'with pleasure, acquainting myself with everything in them.'" – Gale E. Christianson, Isaac Newton, Oxford University Press, 1996. Babson, 136 (v. I, pp. 68-9); Gray, Newton, p. 37. See: Richard S. Westfall, Never at Rest, p. 96.
