      Robert Furber, London 1730 - A fine example of this celebrated image from Furber's renowned series titled "Twelve Months of Flowers", here with excellent contemporary hand colouring. From the first edition of "a celebrated flower catalogue published by Robert Furber, a nurseryman from Kensington, then on the outskirts of London. Twelve Months of Flowers presented almost 400 different flowering species, grouped according to the month in which they flower. Reflecting in style the grand manner of the Baroque period, the flowers are arranged in elaborate bouquets and placed in elegant urns. Next to each flower appears a number, which corresponds to a name in the key printed at the bottom of the plate on either side of a cartouche inscribed with the name of one of the months of the year. Twelve Months was conceived as a flower catalogue, but its commercial function was adroitly veiled and the artistic quality of its illustrations distinguishes it from the more modest pamphlets generally produced by floriculturalists, including Furber himself, in this period. For the work Furber sought the collaboration of Pieter Casteels (1684-1749), an artist from Antwerp who had achieved great renown throughout England for his paintings of birds and flowers, which decorated the walls of many aristocratic homes. Casteels designed the plates, which were then engraved by Henry Fletcher. Dunthorne 113; Great Flower Books (1990) p.95; Henrey II, pp.343-346 & III.733; Nissen BBI 674; Oak Spring Flora 37. Engraving, coloured by hand, by Henry Fletcher (expert small repairs to right margin). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Le Nouveau Gulliver, ou Voyage de Jean Gulliver, fils du Capitaine Gulliver

      Paris: Clouzier & F. Le Breton, 1730. Two volumes, faint waterstains to a few leaves of the second volume, but a really pretty set in contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments, double red labels. Gulliver's son. First edition of this sequel to Swift's Gulliver's Travels by the first French translator of the work. The impressive success of Desfontaines' heavily bowdlerised 1727 translation of Swift's famous novel no doubt provided the impetus to this unofficial sequel. The fiction that it was translated from an original English text is exposed in the preface, where its relationship to Gulliver's Travels is said to be akin to that of Fénélon's Aventures de Telemaque with the Odyssey. As Gove comments, this is one of the very few works to use Gulliver as a model for imitation (unlike the endless array of Robinsonades after Defoe) and thus occupies an important position in the history of Swift's novel. Here, Gulliver's son Jean travels to four lands. He is at his most spirited describing the Island of Babilary in which women are superior, but the other lands have some of the inventiveness, if not the venom, of Swift: the hunch-backed Crump-backs who regard their own form as the ideal, or the Letalispons, who 'live to be 120 yet always look attractive because they begin a second innings at 60' (Dunmore). The work quickly went through many editions, including translation into English as early as 1731.

A bright and detailed plan of Amsterdam, in full contemporary colour with a panoramic view of the harbour. The plan presents Amsterdam as the leading global merchantile city in Europe, highlighting her extensive canal systems, and using an extensive key to detail the city's principal buildings.

He was apprenticed in Nuremberg to Johann Bapist Homann, the leading German cartographic publisher of the period.

        Wien.Die Welt berühmte kayserl. Resid. Stadt.

      Seutter Augsburg ca 1730 - Double-page engraved plan (49 x 58 cm) with full contemporary body wash colour. Framed dimensions: 63 x 71cm. Very small hole on the top right border of the illustration and small paper defects under the hinge, but otherwise a strong impression in fresh original colours. Bright and decorative map of Vienna, in full contemporary colour with a panoramic view of the city. Bird's-eye plan of Vienna and its adjoining suburbs, a city famed as the residence of the Habsburg dynasty and capital of the Holy Roman Empire. It contains a detailed key highlighting imperial, civic and religious buildings. The plan is surrounded by ornate decoration including a title cartouche, held aloft by a goddess and mounted by the imperial eagle, and a panoramic prospect of the city 'as it would be seen at midnight'. This prospect is rich in allegorical detail- the left hand side depicts an angelic figure striking down Ottoman invaders who have threatened a figure emblematic of the Danube river. Meanwhile, the right shows a figure emblematic of the city presenting the arms of Vienna underneath a floating figure laden with fruit, suggesting the city's agricultural prosperity. This example is an early state without the printer's privilege. Seutter (1647-1756) was one of the most important and prolific German map publishers of the 18th century. He was apprenticed in Nuremberg to Johann Bapist Homann, the leading German cartographic publisher of the period.

        Colonia Agrippina. Cölln.

      Seutter Augsburg ca 1730 - Double-page engraved plan (49x56.5 cm) with full contemporary body wash colour. Framed dimensions: 63 x 71cm. A bright and detailed plan of Cologne, in full contemporary colour with a panoramic view of the city from across the river rhein. Seutter's plan emphasises the city's status as a major harbour and flourishing trading city, demonstrated by the many ships entering and exiting the city and the shipbuilding site in the plan's vignette. It also highlights Cologne's security thanks to its strong city walls and towers, in contrast to the area of Deutz across the river, which lacks fortifications. As well as the city's major ports, the plan's key primarily notes the city's important churches. Cologne was considered a 'daughter of Rome' due to its position as a sovereign state within the Holy Roman Empire. The most important of Cologne's 'magnificent 365 churches' are marked, including the Church of Saint Ursula, the site upon which the 11,000 virgins associated with Saint Ursula are said to be buried. Seutter (1647-1756) was one of the most important and prolific German map publishers of the 18th century. He was apprenticed in Nuremberg to Johann Bapist Homann, the leading German cartographic publisher of the period.
