George Matthäus 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 protégé'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. … [Click Below for Full Description]

MOLL, Herman (1654-1732)
London: H. Moll, T. & J. Bowles, P. Overton & J. King, [circa 1730]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, in excellent condition, apart from expert restoration to the original folds. 25 3/4 x 41 1/4 inches. One of the largest and most highly decorative maps of southern and eastern Asia ever produced, regions that were then, as they are now, of primary importance to global trade Ever since the Portuguese mariner Vasco da Gama reached Calicut in 1498, the Indian subcontinent, Indo- China, and the Indonesian Archipelago provoked romantic and commercially exciting conceptions in the minds of Europeans. Following the Portuguese to the region, the English and Dutch founded their own East India Companies, in 1600 and 1602, respectively. The present map depicts this part of the world after European trade had been well established. India, which was largely ruled by the Mughal Empire, featured the strongest British presence, most notably their commercial base at Fort St. George, located in modern day Chennai (formerly Madras). Moll included a fantastically detailed plan of this nucleus of commerce in the lower left corner of the map. Views of the British-dominated port of Surat (in Gujarat) and the Portuguese base of Goa are featured above. The Dutch dominated the Spice Islands and the rest of the Indonesian Archipelago, and the present map features very fine maps of their principal base Batavia (modern day Jakarta) and Bantam, located just to the west, which is also located on the island of Java. This map also includes the Spanish- controlled Philippines, most of the C … [Click Below for Full Description]

TILLEMANS, After Peter (1684-1734)
London & Dublin: T. Sympson and J. Lord, [circa 1730]. Line engravings (small expert repairs to margins). 11 5/8 x 16 6/8 inches approx. 14 3/8 x 20 1/4 inches approx. 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."

HOMANN, Johann Christoph (1703-1730)
Nuremberg: J. B. Homann, 1730. Engraving with hand-colouring. Excellent condition. 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. After his death in 1724, his son, Johann Christoph, assumed control of the firm and this is his issue ot his father's map of Asia. This is a lovely example 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.

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.

Elizabeth of Glorious Memory. In this work, the history of thenegotiations as to the Anjou and Alençon matches carried on duringWalsingham's embassy ( 1570-3, dates covering that of the massacre of St.Bartholomew ) became public property in the shape of the despatches ofWalsingham, and the replies of Burghley, Leicester and Sir Thomas Smith.

Première édition. En fait, cet ouvrage est un abrégé de "Arte de los Metales" que Barba publia à Madrid en 1640. On sait peu de choses de l'abbé Alfonse Alvarez Barba. Il est présenté sur la page de titre du présent ouvrage comme un "célèbre Artiste dans les Mines de Potozi". Mais on sait aussi qu'il fut envoyé au Pérou par l'Eglise espagnole, en 1588, pour y étudier les minerais découverts, principalement l'or, ainsi que son exploitation. Son traité, est considéré comme le premier ouvrage important de ce sujet en lanque espagnole. Son traducteur français, Charles Hautin de Villars, était selon Caillet un très habile "transmutateur". Il a ajouté à sa traduction son propre mémoire sur les mines de France. Bon exemplaire

VERELIUS, Olof || SCHENBERG, Petrus (utg.)
Stockholm, Joh. L. Horrn, 1730. 4.o. (28),+ 284 s. Titeln tryckt i rött och svart. Enstaka fläckar. Samtida skinnband med något nött blindpressad rygg med beige ryggtiteletikett. Ur Gustaf Bernströms bibliotek. Warmholtz 2517. Engström 479. Fint exemplar av första upplagan, saknar dock det graverade porträttet av Verelius. Ett av Verelius tidigaste författade arbeten i svensk historia, vilket han dock själv inte ansåg vara värt att trycka. Manuskript utgavs av Petrus Schenberg med ett företal av A. O. Rhyzelius. Innehåller bl. a "Gothotum extra patriam rerum gestarum" samt en förteckning över Verelius skrifter som Schenberg enligt Warmholtz fått av Stiernman. Warmholtz ansåg det för väl att eftervärlden varit av en annan uppfattning än Verelius själv, inte bara på grund av de goda ting den innehåller utan även för "... des sköna historiska styl, hvaruti Verelius var en mästare". Schenberg gav samma år även ut "Vereliana", som innehåller ett urval av Verelius mindre skrifter, brev m.m.

Verelius ungdomsverk i svensk och gtisk historia hade l§nge cirkulerat i avskrifter innan det utgavs av Peter Schenberg med ett frord av A. O. Rhyzelius. Dess v§rde ligger enligt Lindroth inte s mycket i de historiska skildringarna, som fljer sina gtiska fregngare utan strre originalitet, utan i arbetets utm§rkta latinska stilistik. Olof Rudbeck d.§:s vers till minne av Verelius upptar fyra av prelimin§rsidorna och trycktes frsta gngen 1682.

Covens J., Mortier C.
Amsterdam: Covens & Mortier , 1730. VG, scarce, hand colored on heavy paper. A small stain at right upper corner at far edge of a generous margin. Minimal chipping at upper and right edges. Lower centerfold tear barely noticeable and repaired verso with archival tape. A handsome map of the eastern hemisphere, with just the shell of western Australia, Madagascar under its old name (Menuthias Island), after De L'Isle. The date is approximate, as the combined house of Covens and Mortier began about 1721, and was a prominent force in Dutch mapmaking. The image is a globe of 18.5 inches in diameter..

Osmanisches Reich -
Kupferstich-Karte, M. Seutter, Augsburg ca. 1730, alt grenz- und flächenkoloriert. Ca. 50 x 58 cm. Zeigt das Osmanische Reich in seiner gewaltigen Ausdehnung von Griechenland und Ägypten bis in den heutigen Irak und auf die arabische Halbinsel. Links unten große unkolorierte Titelkartusche mit Meilenzeiger und separater Stechersignatur "Abraham Drentwet Junior del.", Gradnetz. Die Karte ist ca. 1730 zu datieren: Seutter firmiert als Kaiserlicher Geograph, die Karte trägt aber noch nicht das kaiserliche Privileg, welches 1741 verliehen wurde. Schönes Altkolorit ! The map shows the Ottoman Empire in its tremendous enlargement from Greek and Egypt up to today's Irak and the Arabian Peninsula. At the left bottom we find an uncoloured title cartouche with benchmarks and seperated signature "Abraham Drentwet Junior del.". Graticule. Nice old colour!

Very Good ¶ Splendid illustrated edition of Ariosto's works, considered the culmination of 17th-century baroque styles of Venetian book design and the first emergence of the 18th-century neoclassical flowering. Ariosto's new status as a monumental Italian poet is reflected in the format of these massive volumes, representing the first appearance of the Orlando Furioso in folio in Italian. (In the 16th and 17th centuries, which saw countless quarto editions, Ariosto had not yet reached Parnassus.) This copy features strong, clean impressions of the plates, including the Orsolini's great portrait, and fifty-one elaborate, full-page allegories ahead of each cant … [Click Below for Full Description]

MOLL, Herman (1654-1732)
London: H. Moll, T. & J. Bowles, P. Overton & J. King, [circa 1730]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, in excellent condition. 25 3/4 x 41 inches. Moll's highly decorative map of Russia, dedicated to Czar Peter the Great An imperialist at heart, Herman Moll did little to disguise his admiration for Czar Peter the Great (ruled 1683-1725), to whom this map was dedicated. Peter's aspirations for a greater Russia required access to both the Baltic and Black Seas. By the time this map was conceived, he had secured access to both by hard-won military campaigns over Sweden and the Ottomans. Accordingly, an inset on this map features the new Russian port on the Sea of Asof (Asov), an arm of the Black Sea. The cartouche is a resplendent tribute to Peter, who is depicted in an oval draped with laurels, while above angels and cherubs celebrate his accomplishments, and his vanquished foes wallow below. Moll incorporated new geographical information in this map which came from surveys commissioned by the Czar. The present map was part of Herman Moll's magnificent folio work, a New and Compleat Atlas. Moll was the most important cartographer working in London during his era, a career that spanned over fifty years. His origins have been a source of great scholarly debate; however, the prevailing opinion suggests that he hailed from the Hanseatic port city of Bremen, Germany. Joining a number of his countrymen, he fled the turmoil of the Scanian Wars for London, and in 1678 is first recorded as working there as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of th … [Click Below for Full Description]
