        Das Nord- und Ostliche Theil von Europa und Asia, In so weit solches Das ganze Russische Reich mit Sibirien und der grossen Tartarey in sich Begreiffet

      Stockholm: Verlegung des Autoris, 1730 pp.(xxvi) 438, (16) index & errata. German language text. 17 in text plates and illustrations (several full page) 5 folding plates, 1 large folding woodcut chart at page 372, and a large folding, letterpress linguistics table entitled Harmonia Linguarum. Rebound in modern half leather and marbled paper over boards. "An Historical-Geographical description of the north and eastern part of Europe and Asia; but more particularly of Russia, Siberia, and Great Tartary; Both in their Ancient and Modern State: Together with an entire new polyglot-table of the dialects of 32 Tartarian nations: and a vocabulary of the Kalmuck-Mungalian tongue. Philipp J. von Strahlenberg (born Tabbert, 1676-1747) was a Stralsund born Swedish officer. During the Great Nordic War he had been captured by the Russians at the battle of Poltava in 1709 and thereafter he spent some time as a prisoner-of-war in Siberia. Tabbert adopted the name von Strahlenberg in 1707 when he was ennobled for military merits. It was Strahlenberg who defined the geographical borderline between Europe and Asia. His definition was officially accepted by the Tsar in 1730 and was furthermore compulsory in the geographical science. Strahlenberg’s account contains details respecting Russian history, geography, genealogy, archaeology, philology, military history, ethnology, etc., and a description of Atlasov's travel to the Anadyr. Strahlenberg’s account was later issued in English, French, and Spanish. His map of northern Asia was issued separate from the present work.". First Edition. 4to. Vg+/No Jacket. Hard Cover.

      T. Sympson and J. Lord, London & Dublin 1730 - A fine pair from a series of four plates of Newmarket scenes after Tillemans. The four images by Tillemans were issued in two sets at about the same time: these are from the smaller of the two series. Peter Tillemans "came to England from Antwerp in 1708. His first commissions were to paint topographical views. Each required figures to give life to the well-painted landscapes and what was more natural than to show some of the people mounted. his large and busily populated pictures of Newmarket Heath have considerable charm. The influence of his friend John Wotton is most pronounced in his horse portraiture while his compositions owe something to Francis Barlow. Tillemans' patrons included all the principal race-horse owners of the period. He must have known Newmarket well, already established as the home of the turf. Tillemans' influence on later sporting artists is considerable. The engravings after his Newmarket paintings provide a fascinating record of training and horse management when the turf was developing quickly in the hands of the aristocracy of the period." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.173) Lane British Racing Prints p.173; cf. Mellon British Sporting and Animal Prints p.187 (large scale set); Siltzer p.274. Line engravings (small expert repairs to margins).

        Les Amazones Révoltées . Roman moderne en Forme de Parodie sur l'Histoire Universelle, & la Fable. Avec des Notes Politiques sur les Travaux d'Hercule, la Chevalerie-Militaire, et la Découverte du Nouveau-Monde, &c. &c. &c

      Rotterdam: Don Luis le Maingre ..., 1730. Duodecimo, with both errata leaves; an excellent copy in contemporary French mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands, crimson morocco label. First edition and very rare. Although rarely commented on, this work concludes with the hypothesis that Hercules discovered the golden apples in continental America. Although the bulk of the work is a zesty farce with an exotic cast of courtiers, pirates, and a Turkish eunuch, its great interest lies in the extensive notes on the figure of Hercules, which include a concluding account of the so-called Monde par Hercule. In the classical account of Hercules' twelve labours, he is commanded to retrieve the golden apples from the garden of Hesperides, which lies far to the north of Europe. This story is denounced by Boucicault as a transparent fiction: Hercules, far from doing a deal with the father of the Hesperides Atlas, in fact found them himself, whilst visiting America. The story is that, having sailed through the straits of Gibraltar, Hercules was caught in a fierce storm, and blown towards the east, discovering a vast and fertile country in the uncharted seas. Although Boucicault hints darkly that the Greeks had their own reasons for maintaining this deception, he concludes 'l'Enigme s'est enfin dévelopée, après que Christofe Colomb, l'Alcide des Espagnes, ût fait en 1492 la Découverte de ce Nouveau-Monde'. The work was known to Barbier only from the later 1738 edition. Some ten copies of this 1730 edition are listed on Worldcat, but there are very few sales records in recent decades.

        The World and Continents - Five Maps]

      Augsburg 1730 - Superb maps of the World and the Continents by one of the great eighteenth-century German cartographers. George Matth?us Seutter learned the map publishing business as an apprentice to J. B. Homann of Nuremberg. In 1707, he moved to Augsburg where he established himself as Homann's main rival, becoming Geographer to the Imperial Court in 1715. Seutter copied many geographical details from his former prot?g?'s maps, and the rival houses duelled with each other in order to see which one could best epitomise the southern German Baroque ethic, with its lavish decorative embellishments and iconography of Roman Catholic piety. The World Map entitled Diversi Globi Terr-Aquei Statione Variante. exemplifies the new world view of the eighteenth-century. Although the familiar twenty-four Classical windheads still adorn the image, in place of the traditional allegorical scenes, the map is really a collection of "scientific" perspectives of Earth. Around the large hemispheres of the Old and New Worlds, there are polar views, "oblique" views, and perspectives illustrating the sphericality of the Earth. The Earth is no longer a mysterious object, but is now quantifiable, progressively subject to the empirical gaze of mankind. The map of North and South America, Novus Orbis sive America Meridionalis et Septentrionalis. , features resplendent examples of Seutter's cartouches. The title cartouche is inhabited by specimens of exotic birds, flying fish, and a native chief shaded by an umbrella. Surrounding a descriptive note about the New World, in the upper left, Europeans are seated at a table while natives kneel and deposit riches before a crucifix surmounted by the Virgin Mary with the cross, a chalice and a book. The map shows California as an island, at the same time featuring many coastal sites including San Clemente and Santa Barbara. Asia cum omnibus Imperiis, Provinciis, Statibus et Insulis. . shows the continent during the zenith of both the Mughal and Chinese Empire, the latter prominently featuring The Great Wall. The cartouches feature Asian princes, a Chinese scholar with a cup of tea, an elephant, a lion and a pair of warriors. The note to the Reader in the upper right, is a homily on the ultimate importance of eternal and spiritual values over the evanescent values of temporal riches. Africa iuxta navigationes et observationes recentissimas aucta et in sua Regna et Status divisa. . is beautifully decorated with a large, ornate cartouche by Gottfried Rogg that features natives, pyramids, and indigenous animals such as a leopard, a lion and a crocodile. Faithful to the period, the map is full of interesting geographical speculations, revealing that Europeans actually knew very little about the regions of Africa not immediately on the coasts or the banks of major rivers. Seutter allows the Ptolemaic myth that the Nile is fed by two large lakes to persist. Europa Religionis Christian?, Morum et Pacis ac Belli Artium Cultu Omnium Terrarum Orbis Partium Pr?stantiss. is the title of the Europe map. The cartouche avows the claims of the title: "[Christian Europe in all the World the most Accomplished in the Ways of Peace and War and Cultivation of the Arts]", as a chain of cherubs descend from the Godhead along with the symbols of Catholicism. A queen at the left of the title represents good government, and below Athena and Apollo represent war and the arts. Tooley & Bricker, Landmarks of Mapmaking, p. 167-170.

      1730 - Frankfurt, 1730. Original colour. 120 x 130mm. The constellation Leo, engraved by Johann Christoph Berndt for the celestial atlas 'Mercurii Philosphici Firmamentum Firmianum', named for Thomas's patron, Leopold Anton von Firmian, Archbishop of Salzburg. Corbinianus Thomas (1694-1767), a Benedictine monk, was Professor of Mathematics and Theology at the University of Salzburg. His star atlas was first published in 1730 at Frankfurt, with a second edition at Augsburg the following year. He used an odd system for nomenclature: Bayer Greek letter for the star, Roman numeral for the magnitude and Arabic numeral for the star catalogue reference. Individual zodiac signs of this period are uncommon, especially in original colour. KANAS: 7.7, 'beautiful illustrations'; WARNER, p.251.
