        A New Map of The North Parts of America claimed by France under the names of Louisiana, Mississippi, Canada and New France with the adjoyning terriories of England and Spain.Herman Moll 1720.

      London. 1720 [1730] - 2 sheets joined. Size: 630 x 1040 mm. Some skilful paper restoration to map folds and to worm holes, some staining, however, the overall condition is excellent. Copperplate map with original outline colour. This interesting and intriguing map by Herman Moll was published as a possible rebuttal to the Frenchman Guillaume DeLisle's claims to French possessions in America via his earlier map of 1718 of the Mississippi valley. This map, and that of Delisle, were strategic and important weapons in the cartographic war that raged at that time between France and Britain for European dominance in America. The map is decorated with a large inset of "The Indian Fort Sasquesahanor", the fort according DeLisle's map marked the dividing line between French and British territories. There are two inset plans: that of Annapolis harbour, and the mouth of the Mississippi river in the Gulf of Mexico. There is a delightful cartouche dedicated to Thomas Bromsall. This is a map that has strong decorative, cartographic and political appeal to the collector and scholar alike.

        Recentissima Asiae Delineatio, Qua Status et Imperia Totius Orientis unacum Orientalibus Indiis exhibentur.

      J. B. Homann, Nuremberg 1730 - An early map of Asia that includes the northern tip of Australia and Papua, New Guinea, by the celebrated German cartographer, J. B. Homann. Johann Baptiste Homann established in the early years of the 18th century the most successful map publishing firm in Germany. His prolific business, which his family continued after his death, dominated Germany's map market for over a century and produced some of the finest maps and atlases of the age. He started the firm in Nuremberg, and,in 1715, he was appointed Geographer to the Emperor. This is a lovely example of Homann's first map of Asia. It includes the northern tip of Australia (Nova Hollandia) Carpentaria, Nova Britannia and the Marianas. Hokkaido is identified as Terra Yedso and the fictional Compagnie Land, to the northeast of Japan. Dampier's passage shown stretching between New Guinea and New Britain and marks his discovery of New Britain in 1700. The map is a wonderful example of Homann's ornate, Baroque style. The title cartouche shows an Asian potentate pointing his scepter at three subjects, who bow on their hands and knees before him. The other cartouche in the upper right corner with a note to the viewer shows a procession of soldiers carrying a Hindu idol followed by men playing gongs, drums and wind instruments. Tooley, Maps and Map-makers 27, 107-108. Engraving with hand-colouring. Excellent condition.

Charles Rollin (January 30, 1661- December 14, 1741) was a French historian and educationist. He was born at Paris. He was the son of a cutler, and at the age of twenty-two was made a master in the Collège du Plessis. In 1694 he was rector of the University of Paris, rendering great service among other things by reviving the study of Greek. He held that post for two years instead of one, and in 1699 was appointed principal of the Collège de Beauvais. Rollin held Jansenist principles, and even went so far as to defend the miracles supposed to be worked at the tomb of François de Paris, commonly known as Deacon Paris. Unfortunately his religious opinions deprived him of his appointments and disqualified him for the rectorship, to which in 1719 he had been re-elected. It is said that the same reason prevented his election to the Académie française, though he was a member of the Academie des Inscriptions. Shortly before his death he protested publicly against the acceptance of the bull Unigenitus. Rollin's literary work dates chiefly from the later years of his life, when he had been forbidden to teach. His once famous Ancient History (Paris, 1730-38), and the less generally read Roman History, which followed it, were avowed compilations, uncritical and somewhat inaccurate. But they instructed and interested generation after generation almost to the present day. A more original and really important work was his Traité des études (Paris, 1726-31). It contains a summary of what was even then a reformed and innovative system of education, including a more frequent and extensive use of the vulgar tongue, and discarded the medieval traditions that had lingered in France.

        The Hibernian Patriot: Being a Collection of the Drapier's Letters to the People of Ireland, concerning Mr. Wood's Brass Half-Pence. Together with Considerations on the Attempt made to pass that Coin. And Reasons for the People of Ireland's refusing it. To which are added, Poems and Songs relating to the same Subject

      Printed at Dublin. London: Reprinted and Sold by A. Moor-, 1730 - Swift's pseudonymous letters were first issued separately in 1824, then collected first by the Dublin edition of 1725 under the title "Fraud Detected-"; this is the first London edition. In 1722, the English Parliament granted to one William Wood, mine-owner and iron-monger, the right to coin the extravagant sum of £100,000 in copper half-pence. Swift was outraged at what he perceived not only as a swindle to advance the interests of a particular moneyed interest, but also as one more example of the monstrous tyranny exercised by England over the Irish. In the persona of a humble shopkeeper, Swift attacked the proposal on several sound economic grounds, and pushed his conclusions to their logical and absurd consequences. Having calculated the read (as opposed to the nominal) value of Wood's half-pence, and taking it for granted that bad money drives out good, Swift concludes hilariously that a lady going out shopping will need to be "followed by a Car loaded with Mr. Wood's money," and that a banker will need twelve hundred horse to carry the cash he needs in his bank. But there is also a thunderously Swiftian appeal to freedom: "Were not the people of Ireland born as free as those of England? How have they foreited their Freedom? Is not their Parliament as fair a Representative of the People, as that of England? And hath not their Privy Council as great or a greater share in the Administration of publick Affairs? Are they not subjects of the same King? Does not the same Sun shine over them? And have they not the same God for their Protector? Am I a Free-Man in England, and do I become a Slave in six hours by crossing the Channel?" Swift's "Drapier" urges a boycott of Wood's coins upon his countrymen: "If a Madman should come to my Shop with a Handful of Dirt raked out of the Kennel, and offer it in payment for Ten Yards of Stuff, I would Pity or Laugh at him, or, if his Behaviour deserved it, kick him out of my Doors. And if Mr. Wood comes to demand any Gold or Silver, or Commodities for which I have payed my Gold and Silver, in Exchange for his Trash, can he deserve or expect better treatment?" Swift's publication fanned the flames of controversy both in Ireland and England; and his victory was complete when by the end of August 1725, Wood's grant was withdrawn. "Precisely to what extent Swift had been instrumental in bringing it about can never be assessed. It is certain that he had many able helpers, as it is clear that the populace gave him pre-eminence, so that for the rest of his life he was the people's idol-" (Dobrée, English Literature in the Early Nineteenth Century 1700-1740, p. 439) First London edition. 8vo.

Par une chaude nuit d'ete, un sylphe invisible vient justement la surprendre, a demi-nue dans sa chambre, et lui declarer son amour. Au terme d'un dialogue serre, marque par le protocole subtil du libertinage, elle pourrait avoir montre quelque faiblesse a l'etrange visiteur. A moins qu'elle n'ait reve...".

Une sorte de folie verbale s'empare du genre du recit de voyage imaginaire, et engendre une utopie detraquee, ou le langage a perdu tout sens commun. Cette apotheose du non-sens fait la principale originalite d'un texte donne explicitement pour un reve, mais qui, contrairement a L'An 2440 de Mercier, se caracterise par un illogisme enumeratif et une profusion de details incongrus" (cf. longue analyse J.-M. Racault, 'Voyages badins, burlesques et parodiques du XVIIIe s.', p. 87-112). 8- Attribue a P.-Fr. Guyot Desfontaines ou a Jean-Jacques Bel.

        L&#39;Afrique dressée sur les observations de Mr de l&#39;académie Royale des Sciences

      Amsterdam: Covens & Mortier, 1730. unbound. Map. Engraving with enhanced hand coloring. Image measures 19 x 22.5". Sheet measures 21.75 x 25.5". This map of Africa is a splendid later edition of Guilaume Delisle&#39;s landmark 1700 work. Prior to this publication, cartographers based their representations of Africa on the work of Ptolemy, placing the continent primarily above the Equator and leaving its interior largely undetailed. Delisle broke this 250-year trend by presented a much improved representation that, perhaps most significantly, correctly located the origin of the Nile River in Abyssinia rather than in two source lakes. The style of the map reflects the cartographer&#39;s interest in scientific accuracy and care: its clear rendering allowed for updates and new knowledge to be added in later states, such as this one. The Mediterranean has been nicely included at the top of the map as to provide a geographical context. Hand coloring further displays the extent of knowledge about the continent in this period. Delisle&#39;s concessions to aesthetics appear in the fine title cartouche in the upper right, which features native Africans interacting with local animals including an elephant, ostrich, and crocodile. The map is in very good condition with no cropping. Full original margins. Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726) was a legendary French cartographer known for introducing a new standard of accuracy into 17th-century mapmaking. He used astronomical observations to determine locations and draw more precise coastlines. The Amsterdam publishing firm of Covens and Mortier (1665-c. 1862) was established by Cornelius Mortier and Jean Covens. Together, the two republished the works of great 17th and early 18th century Dutch and French cartographers such as De L&#39;Isle, Allard, Jansson, De Wit, and Ottens. The firm quickly grew into one of the largest and most prolific Dutch publishing outfits of the 18th century and enjoyed a long and prolific life under a variety of names.

The map shows Tasman's recent discoveries in Australia and Tasmania, and depicts California as an island. Jacob van Campen (1595-1657), the greatest architect of the Dutch Golden Age, began working on the design of the Amsterdam City Hall in 1640 and though it opened in 1655, it was not actually completed until 1665. Constantine Huygens called it the eighth wonder of the world. In very good condition with only some minor marginal soiling or browning. Spine with some superficial cracks, and restorations at its head and foot, sides scuffed. Fine print series showing the Amsterdam City Hall in full glory.

        Rules for Foretelling the Alteration of the Weather

      [London ?]: unk. publisher, ca. 1730 First Edition ? A very good copy with some overall toning. h'bill..A set of instructions for the use of a barometer. The instructions have been mounted both recto and verso on a card that is bordered with decorative marbled paper. Recto has the instructions for interpreting the movement of the mercury. Verso has detailed instructions on the use of the vernier and read outs. The instructions are written in a straight forward style and are based upon the printed work of Halley and Patrick (they are cited by name in the prefatory paragraph). Both men lived in the late 17th and into the first quarter of the 18th century. Patrick, the first English instrument maker to specialize in barometers, published two works on the barometer prior to 1704. Halley published an article on its use in 1700. Goodison points out that vernier readouts on barometers were not in general use until the mid 18th century. Given the detail of the instructions on the use of the nonius (vernier) it appears to have been a relatively recent improvement. In conjunction with the references to the publications of Halley and Patrick it is most likely that the card of instructions offered here dates from the earlier part of the 18th century. D J Bryden's recent article in the Scientific Instrument Society Bulletin (Mar. 2004) cites the presumed existence of such printed instruction sheets that were issued by Patrick and given with each instrument purchased. None are located. The card retains its original blue silk ribbon (to hang form the base of a barometer ?). A remarkable artifact. The item meas. appx. 5.25 x 8.5 inches.
