        Depart Pour la Chasse Au Vol

      Paris: Moyreau, 1740. Hand-coloured engraving on laid paper by Moyreau. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and mild rippling. A fine composition showing the hunting party embarking on the hunt. This beautifully coloured print is one of many engravings Jean Moyreau (1690-1762) made of Wouwerman's paintings. Born into a family of Dutch artists in Haarlem in 1619, the prolific draughtsman and painter Philips Wouwerman was primarily renowned for his lively battle and hunting scenes. After an early elementary introduction to the art of painting by his father, Paulus Joostens, he trained with the landscape painter Jan Wynants (1620-1679) and briefly worked in the Hamburg studio of the history painter Everard Decker (d. 1647) around 1638. Wouwerman later returned to Haarlem, where he joined the Guild of St. Luke, which later elected him to the office of vinder in 1646. His elegantly rendered, distinctive works, which are characterized by their luminous colour and detailed, animated treatment of figures and landscape alike, were extremely popular in the seventeenth century as well as the nineteenth century, during which they were zealously collected. Among his varied and substantial repertoire of subjects, which included military and battle scenes, landscapes, travellers, animals and genre subjects, Wouwerman favored his hunting scenes. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs , vol 14, p. 723.

        A New Map of Great Britain

      London: Thomas Bowles, J. Bowles & John King, 1740. Engraved with full, period colouring, two sheets joined, both sheets with creases center folds, Several long, not obtrusive creases toward bottom of map. Full contemporary colour example of Moll's fine map of the recently conjoined states of England, Scotland and Wales: Great Britain This great map of the recently united Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) of 1707, exemplifies Moll's particular virtues as a mapmaker. It is drawn on a large scale and includes major roads with mileage between points. Never word shy, Moll includes a general outline of the method and mechanics of representation of the new Union, and in a separate place, a brief account of his reasons for making the map and of its unique features. There is an inset map of the Shetland Islands. 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 the English Atlas. It was not long before Moll found himself as a charter member of London's most interesting social circle, which congregated at Jonathan's Coffee House at Number 20 Exchange Alley, Cornhill. It was at this establishment that speculators met to trade equities (most notoriously South Sea Company shares). Moll's coffeehouse circle included the scientist Robert Hooke, the archaeologist William Stuckley, the authors Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe, and the intellectually-gifted pirates William Dampier, Woodes Rogers and William Hacke. From these friends, Moll gained a great deal of privileged information that was later conveyed in his cartographic works, some appearing in the works of these same figures. Moll was highly astute, both politically and commercially, and he was consistently able to craft maps and atlases that appealed to the particular fancy of wealthy individual patrons, as well as the popular trends of the day. In many cases, his works are amongst the very finest maps of their subjects ever created with toponymy in the English language. Furthermore, Moll is one of the few mapmakers who merits the term "Innovative". English mapmakers prior to Moll tried to imitate Dutch maps as nearly as possible, whereas Moll seems to have largely disregarded Dutch precedents. Removing all the Baroque stylistic elements, Moll replaced decoration with things that interested him about the places depicted, either pictorially or verbally. And he was right to do so. His notes and illustrations are more interesting than the putti and mythical gods of the late Dutch maps. Dictionary of National Biography.

        Grand Theatre de la Guerre en Amerique Suivant les Plus Novelles observations des Espagnols, Anglois, Francois & Hollandois mis au jour par R. & I. Ottens

      [Amsterdam]: R. & J. Ottens, 1740. Engraved map, with 8 inset maps, on 6 joined sheets, fine contemporary hand-colouring. Very good condition apart from expert repairs to splits at folds and creases where the map was folded. A spectacular large-scale map of the Gulf of Mexico from Florida to Guiana, the West Indies, and whole of Central America: a graphic reminder of the War of Jenkins' Ear. As its title suggests, this spectacular map depicts the full American theatre of the war with eight insets showing the principal ports of the region: 1) A Draught of St. Augustin and its Harbour; 2) La Havane; 3) Plan de la Ville Espagnole de S. Domingue; 4) Harbourg [sic.] de Porto Bello; 5) Plan de la Baye de Carthagena; 6) Nouvelle Carte de L'Isle de Curacao; 7) Nouveau Plan du Port et de la Ville d'Acapulco; 8) Plan de la Vera-Cruz. The inset of the harbour of Porto Bello is after Popple and the chart of St. Augustine is copied from Moll's West Indies. The War of Jenkins' Ear (1739-1742) took its name from Robert Jenkins, captain of the "Rebecca", who claimed that the Spanish had cut off his ear in 1731. Public opinion forced Robert Walpole's government to declare war on 23 October 1739, after Jenkins ear was produced, in a moment of high drama during a debate in the House of Commons. A year later the war merged into the War of the Austrian Succession. The stated reason for the war was the supposed Spanish mistreatment of English seamen; the war, however, is seen as resulting from the commercial rivalry between the Spanish and British in the Caribbean basin. The publishing history of the map is complicated by the fact that it appears to have been issued as the sheets were completed presumably in a rush by the publishers to capitalise on the interest in the region. The two middle sheets were made available on their own (under the title Nova Isthmi Americani, qui et Panamiensis item Dariensis, Tabula) and advertised by Reinier and Joshua Ottens in the Amsterdamsche Courant on May 12, 1740. The next two sheets were first advertised on 6 October 1740. By 10 June 1741, the full six sheets were available: they were advertised at a price of 48 stuyvers (see Van der Krogt, 'Advertenties').

      Amsterdam, Isaak Tirion, en Jacobus Loveringh 1740 - 17 delen, Origineel half Leer met ribben, 4° (Enkele delen aan de bovenkant van de kneep wat sleets. Complete set van de bekende bijbelverklaring van Patrick, Polus en Wells met de 6 kaarten en 2 tabellen. De bijbelverklaring is genoemd naar onder meer Simon Patrick, een anglicaanse bisschop die leefde van 1626 tot 1707. Zijn werk vormde de basis voor de commentaren op Genesis tot en met Hooglied. De Nederlandse samenstellers hebben zijn werk aangevuld met de commentaren van Matthew Poole, een non-conformistisch predikant, die in de Engelse Kerk in Amsterdam ligt begraven. Allerlei geografische gegevens zijn ontleend aan de werken van rector en cartograaf Edward Wells. Ook maakten de samenstellers gebruik van de kanttekeningen in de Geneva Bible -de voorloper van de King James Bijbel- en commentaren van andere personen. Het Nieuwe Testament is grotendeels van de baptist John Gill, een autodidact, die goed thuis was in de grondtalen. Hij kan gezien worden als een voorloper van Joseph Charles Philpot. Deze verklaring is een uitstekende aanvulling op de Bijbelverklaring van Matthew Henry.)

        Op. 1]. Sei Sonata [!Sonate] á violino solo E Basso sia [!ossia] cimbalo Dedicate á s. A. Sma. Il Principe Di Carignano. Opera prima. Musical manuscript score

      [ca 1740] - Published in 1739 as Sei Sonate by Carlo and Giovanni Tessarini in Urbino, Italy (RISM C781; 1 copy, at the Bibliothèque nationale, Paris) and in the same year by Mlle. Monnet, Mme, Boivin, and Le Clerc (RISM C780; 5 copies, all in Europe). Manuscript copies of the third movement of Sonata no. 1 and the first movement of Sonata IV at the Henry Watson Music Library, Manchester, U.K. (RISM 806550137 and 806550138)."[Canavas] was an Italian violinist and composer. The date of his arrival in Paris cannot be determined with certainty. The first unequivocal reference to him is the privilege of 1739, connected with the publication of his first set of violin sonatas in Paris in the same year; the sonatas had just been published in Urbino, so it is possible that he only then arrived in Paris. His two sets of violin sonatas, separated by 24 years, are perhaps less interesting in themselves than as an indication of changing styles in the mid-18th century." Michelle Fillion in Grove Music Online. Folio (350 x 250 mm). Green cloth-backed marbled boards with titling gilt to spine. 28 pp. Notated in brown ink on 16-stave paper, with a watermark featuring a bunch of grapes. Includes elaborate bass figures.First sonata with caption title "Sonata 1er[!]." Sonata IIa begins on third staff of f. 4r.; "false start," also with heading "Sonata IIa" and apparently identical with the main text, to first two staves and pasted over; "Sonata iida" in ink to overpaste in a different hand. Some additional overpaste corrections. Some penciled slurs to slow movement of Sonata IIa; pagination and other annotations in pencil in a modern hand.Binding very slightly worn and rubbed.

        ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE ISLAND OF MONTSERRAT; FROM 1668, to 1740, INCLUSIVE. [bound with]: ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE CHARIBBEE LEEWARD ISLANDS, FROM 1690, TO 1705.

      London: John Baskett, 1740. - x,146; v,24,[4]pp. Folio. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards. Light dampstaining in gutter margin of first few leaves. Very good. Laws of the island of Montserrat, from its early settlement through the first half of the 18th-century. Settled by the British in the mid-17th century, Montserrat was, like most of the islands in the West Indies, a plantation colony producing sugar and cotton. It was also heavily Irish, many Irish being transported there as indentured servants and laborers during Cromwell's reign over the British Isles, although it also had African slaves. Laws here include those pertaining to trade, roads, and other commonplace matters. There are also acts regarding slaves, such as "An Act for restraining the liberty of Negroes, and to prevent the running away of Christian servants." Also present are the laws of the Leeward Islands, passed from 1690 to 1705, likewise printed by John Baskett. These pertain to the islands in general, governing general assemblies and trade, but also the slave population, such as this act which allowed an extra gun for every ten slaves owned: "An Act for the finding Supernumerary Arms, to be proportionable according to the number of every person's Negroes, within these his Majesty's Leeward Charibbee Islands in America."

        L'Afrique Dressée Sur les Relationes les Plus Recentes et rectifiées sur les dernieres observations

      Paris: Chez l'auteur rue s.Jacques au dessous de la rue Mathurins a l'Enseigne de la Place des Victoires, 1740. Copper-engraved wall map, with original outline colour, of four joined sheets, surrounded by text and vignettes printed on separate sheets, backed onto old linen, with contemporary wooden rollers, overall in very good condition. A rare and monumental wall map of Africa by a great French master of cartography. Jean-Baptiste Nolin was one of the most accomplished and certainly the most ambitious French cartographer of his era. He founded what ultimately became a family empire in Paris in the 1680s. Exceptionally, he managed to marry superlative decorative ornamentation with the serious objective of producing maps that reflected the most advanced rendering of geographical detail. The artistic élan of his compositions evinced a style that preserved the rhetorical ambitions of the Baroque ethic, while anticipating the playful elegance of the Rococo period. His masterpieces, many like the present wall map, were monumental in scale and represented Nolin's desire to overwhelm his competition in what was a very challenging market. Highly controversial, Nolin occasionally described himself as "the Engraver to the King", an appointment of which the royal court was curiously never apprised. In his endeavour to include the very latest geographical details on his maps, he seldom hesitated to acquire information from his eminent contemporaries, most notably Guillaume De L'Isle and Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, Jean-Dominique Cassini and the Sieur de Tillemon. At times these rivals were not appreciative of Nolin's adoption of their intellectual property, as De L'Isle successfully sued Nolin for plagiarism in 1705. However, the larger-than-life Nolin always seemed to transcend these challenges, leaving a thriving enterprise to be taken up by his son. The present map was created in 1740 by Jean-Baptiste Nolin II, largely based on earlier maps produced by his father. Geographically, the map is relatively progressive, however it showcases some rather curious speculations. The coastlines are well defined, having been explored for over two-hundred and fifty years, however, the heart of Africa remains an enigma. In the absence of direct observation, the European imagination was given free reign. In this light, Nolin adopts the seventeenth-century conceptions popularized by De L'Isle and Coronelli that the Nile was somehow connected to the Niger River, even though both rivers flow in different directions to terminate at points thousands of miles apart. Furthermore, the written descriptions of the continent's inhabitants are replete with archaic legends of bizarre and monstrous races. The presented map is an artistically virtuous composition on a monumental scale, the image being surrounded by thirty vignettes that depict events from African history. The focus of the vignettes is on the better known North African regions, however, there is also a great deal of attention paid to French commercial activities in Guinea. Each vignette is set within an elaborate baroque frame of a unique design, and is accompanied by textual narratives. The detailed description at the bottom is entitled "Description Geographique de L'Afrique." The large title cartouche is framed by period rocaille swirls, and is inhabited by an optimistic scene depicting the amicable commerce between Africans and Europeans, as well as a dedication to Louis XV. This wall map is one of the greatest subjects of the Nolins' legacy, not only being a masterful work of art and a fascinating image that tests the very limits of European geographical knowledge, but also a vivid record of a dramatic transitional period in the history of cartography, and of society in general. Tooley, Maps of Africa , p.86, plate 67.

        ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE ISLAND OF MONTSERRAT; FROM 1668, to 1740, INCLUSIVE. [bound with]: ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE CHARIBBEE LEEWARD ISLANDS, FROM 1690, TO 1705

      London: John Baskett, 1740.. x,146; v,24,[4]pp. Folio. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards. Light dampstaining in gutter margin of first few leaves. Very good. Laws of the island of Montserrat, from its early settlement through the first half of the 18th-century. Settled by the British in the mid-17th century, Montserrat was, like most of the islands in the West Indies, a plantation colony producing sugar and cotton. It was also heavily Irish, many Irish being transported there as indentured servants and laborers during Cromwell's reign over the British Isles, although it also had African slaves. Laws here include those pertaining to trade, roads, and other commonplace matters. There are also acts regarding slaves, such as "An Act for restraining the liberty of Negroes, and to prevent the running away of Christian servants." ^Also present are the laws of the Leeward Islands, passed from 1690 to 1705, likewise printed by John Baskett. These pertain to the islands in general, governing general assemblies and trade, but also the slave population, such as this act which allowed an extra gun for every ten slaves owned: "An Act for the finding Supernumerary Arms, to be proportionable according to the number of every person's Negroes, within these his Majesty's Leeward Charibbee Islands in America."

        L'Europe Dressée Sur les Nouvelles observations faites en toutes les parties de la Terre Rectifiée

      Paris: Chez le fils de l'auteur Rue St.Jacques a lenseigne de la Place des Victoires, 1740. Copper-engraved wall map, with original outline colour, backed onto old linen, with contemporary wooden rollers, overall in very good condition. A rare and monumental wall map of Europe by one of the great masters of French cartography. Jean-Baptiste Nolin was one of the most accomplished and certainly the most ambitious French cartographer of his era. He founded what ultimately became a family empire in Paris in the 1680s. Exceptionally, he managed to marry superlative decorative ornamentation with the serious objective of producing maps that reflected the most advanced rendering of geographical detail. The artistic élan of his compositions evinced a style that preserved the rhetorical ambitions of the Baroque ethic, while anticipating the playful elegance of the Rococo period. His masterpieces, many like the present wall map, were monumental in scale and represented Nolin's desire to overwhelm his competition in what was a very challenging market. Highly controversial, Nolin occasionally described himself as "the Engraver to the King," an appointment of which the royal court was curiously never apprised. In his endeavour to include the very latest geographical details on his maps, he seldom hesitated to acquire information from his eminent contemporaries, most notably Guillaume De L'Isle and Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, Jean-Dominique Cassini and the Sieur de Tillemon. At times these rivals were not appreciative of Nolin's adoption of their intellectual property, and De L'Isle successfully sued Nolin for plagiarism in 1705. However, the larger-than-life Nolin always seemed to transcend these challenges, leaving a thriving enterprise to be taken up by his son. The present map was created in 1740 by Jean-Baptiste Nolin II, largely based on earlier maps produced by his father. It is a highly detailed and refined image of Europe, which was then in the process of intensifying its imperialistic grip over the other continents. This map is an artistically virtuous composition on a monumental scale, the image being surrounded by thirty vignettes, each framed in individualised Baroque borders, that depict various events from European history, along with textual narratives. The greatest decorative flourish of the composition is surely the title cartouche, located in the upper-left of the main image. Exquisitely engraved classical gods and allegorical personifications border the construction. Iconologically, they are meant to imbue Europe with the various strengths and virtues that they represent. For instance, Mercury, the messenger god of travel, is present to protect and speed European ships as they sail the seas on global missions of conquest and commerce. This wall map is one of the greatest subjects of the Nolins' legacy, not only being a masterful work of art and a fascinating image that tests the very limits of European geographical knowledge, but a vivid record of a dramatic transitional period in the history of cartography, and of society in general.

        Observations sur la Construction de la Carte de l'Océan Oriental ou Mers de Indes, pour servir vaisseaux du roy, dressée au dépost des cartes, plans & journaux de la marine, par ordre de M. le comte de Maurepas, 1740

      [Paris]: Jacques Guerin, 1740. Quarto. (9 5/8 x 7 13/16 inches). 35pp. Quarto. Contemporary manuscript corrections in text on pp.7, 12, 21, 28, and 30. (Small tear at outer margin of first leaf). Contemporary paper-backed boards Provenance: Earls of Macclesfield (library shelf marks, blind stamps) The rare first edition of Bellin's extensive account of his map of the Indian Ocean. The work includes lengthy separate analyses of the coasts of Africa from the Cape of Good Hope to the Red Sea, Madagascar and other isles in the Indian Ocean, and the coasts and isles of Asia from the Red Sea to China. In addition to these geographic locations, observations made in the regions by various explorers are cited. The cartographer Bellin was employed for more than five decades in the French Hydrographic Service, where he served as the first "Ingénieur hydrographe de la Marine." Commissioned to develop new surveys of the coasts of France and then the known coasts of the world, these were published, respectively, as Le Neptune Français in 1735 and the Hydrographie Français between 1756 and 1765. Bellin also published a Petit Atlas Maritime with 580 charts and plans of harbors, issued in five volumes in 1764. The present work was later reprinted as one of thirty reprinted pamphlets in the author's Recueil des Memoires qui ont été publiés avec les Cartes Hydrographiques (Paris, ca. 1767). Remarkably rare in this original printing: not in OCLC; RLIN records only a reprint at the JCB issued as part of the author's Recueil .... Cf. Sabin 4556.

        Recens Edita totius Novi Belgii, in America Septentrionali siti, delineatio cura et sumtibus Matthæi Seutteri, Sac. Caes. Maj. Geographi August. Vind. Cum Gratia et Privil. S.R.I. Vicariat in part, Rheni, Sveviae, et Juris Franconici

      Augsburg: Matthäus Seutter, 1740. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, in very good condition. An excellent example of the third state of Seutter's important map of the American northeast with the famous 'Restitutio' view of New York City A fine example of one of the much-pirated Jansson-Visscher New England series of maps, first published by Visscher in 1651. The present plate was first published by Seutter in 1730, and `is the first map in the [Jansson-Visscher] series to show ... the boundaries of Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.' There are three states with Seutter's imprint: the first with no mention of his imperial appointment, and the second state mentioning that he is Imperial geographer. In the third state (as here), dating to 1740 onwards, the title has been altered again, this time to include mention of the privilege that he has been granted. After Seutter's death his son-in-law, Tobias Conrad Lotter, inserted his own name and three further states were published. To this map of the northeast is added the famous Restitutio View of New York City, which celebrated the brief return to Dutch governance from late 1672 until February of 1674. This is one of the earliest views of the city. Adorning the inset view is a very elaborate tableau in which the Emperor, Charles VI, is shown attended by Hermes, god of commerce, Athena, goddess of wisdom, and Hera, who is standing over a chest of gold coins. Behind the divine beings, dark skinned workers of the world carry nature's products to lay at the Emperor's feet. Matthäus Seutter was one of the most important German mapmakers of the eighteenth century. Born in Augsburg in 1678, he became an apprentice to the renowned cartographer Johann Baptiste Homann in Nuremberg. In 1707 he established himself as a map publisher in Augsburg, and quickly became Homann's main rival. His business flourished and by 1731 he was appointed Geographer to the Imperial Court.

        L'Asie Dressée sur les Nouvelles Observations Faites en toutes les Parties de la Terre et Rectifieés

      Paris: Chez J.B. Nolin le Fils Geografe sur le Quay de l'Horloge du Palais a l'Enseigne de la Place des Victoires entre le Rue de Harlay et le Pont Neuf, 1740. Copper-engraved wall map, with original outline colour, of four joined sheets, surrounded by text and vignettes printed on separate sheets, backed onto old linen, with contemporary wooden rollers, overall in very good condition. A rare and monumental wall map of Asia by one of the great French masters of cartography. Jean-Baptiste Nolin was one of the most accomplished and certainly the most ambitious French cartographer of his era. He founded what ultimately became a family empire in Paris in the 1680s. Exceptionally, he managed to marry superlative decorative ornamentation with the serious objective of producing maps that reflected the most advanced rendering of geographical detail. The artistic élan of his compositions evinced a style that preserved the rhetorical ambitions of the Baroque ethic, while anticipating the playful elegance of the Rococo period. His masterpieces, many like the present wall map, were monumental in scale and represented Nolin's desire to overwhelm his competition in what was a very challenging market. Highly controversial, Nolin occasionally described himself as "the Engraver to the King," an appointment of which the royal court was curiously never apprised. In his endeavour to include the very latest geographical details on his maps, he seldom hesitated to acquire information from his eminent contemporaries, most notably Guillaume De L'Isle and Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, Jean-Dominique Cassini and the Sieur de Tillemon. At times these rivals were not appreciative of Nolin's adoption of their intellectual property, and De L'Isle successfully sued Nolin for plagiarism in 1705. However, the larger-than-life Nolin always seemed to transcend these challenges, leaving a thriving enterprise to be taken up by his son. The present map was created in 1740 by Jean-Baptiste Nolin II, largely based on an earlier maps produced by his father. While the geographical depiction of most of the continent is quite assured for the time, this map is one of the eighteenth-century's most fascinating experiments in cartographic speculation. Published on the very eve of Vitus Bering's voyage to Alaska and eastern Siberia, this map shows that contemporary Europeans had no real concept of what lands might have occupied these regions. North America is thus shown as reaching down to a point just north of Japan. On the other side of the continent, an absurdly large Greenland looms closely over the northern coast of Siberia to a point past Nova Zemlya. On the main map the Mariana Islands, or Nouvelle Phillipines, adorn the Pacific in a configuration consistent with the account of the Jesuit explorer Paul Clain. Curiously, the inset in the upper right corner depicts a different rendering of the same islands as suggested in a Jesuit report of 1697. Nolin's work is an artistically virtuous composition on a monumental scale, the image being surrounded by thirty vignettes that depict various events from Greek, Roman, Jewish, Christian, and Islamic history. In turn, each vignette is set within an elaborate baroque frame of a unique design, accompanied by textual narratives. The extensive text along the lower margin is entitled "Description Géographique de l'Asie." The upper left of the main image is adorned with an especially resplendent cartouche, featuring Jesuit priests evangelizing to the diverse peoples of the continent. This wall map is one of the greatest subjects of the Nolins' legacy, not only being a masterful work of art and a fascinating image that tests the very limits of European geographical knowledge, but a vivid record of a dramatic transitional period in the history of cartography, and of society in general.

        L'Amerique Dressée sur les Relations les plus Recentes rectifiées sur les dernieres observations

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur Rue St. Jacques au dessus de la Rue des Mathurins a lensgne. de la Place des Victoires, 1740. Copper-engraved wall map, with original outline colour, on four unjoined sheets, each 21 5/8 x 28 inches, if joined would form a map measuring approximately 40 x 49 1/2 inches, in excellent condition. A rare and highly decorative large-scale map of the Americas, and one of the finest masterpieces produced by the Nolin family. Jean-Baptiste Nolin was one of the most accomplished and certainly the most ambitious French cartographer of his era. He founded what ultimately became a family empire in Paris in the 1680s. Exceptionally, he managed to marry superlative decorative ornamentation with the serious objective of producing maps that reflected the most advanced rendering of geographical detail. The artistic élan of his compositions evinced a style that preserved the rhetorical ambitions of the Baroque ethic, while anticipating the playful elegance of the Rococo period. His masterpieces, many like the presented wall map, were monumental in scale and represented Nolin's desire to overwhelm his competition in what was a very challenging market. Highly controversial, Nolin occasionally described himself as "the Engraver to the King," an appointment of which the royal court was curiously never apprised. In his endeavour to include the very latest geographical details on his maps, he seldom hesitated to acquire information from his eminent contemporaries, most notably Guillaume De L'Isle and Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, Jean-Dominique Cassini and the Sieur de Tillemon. While Nolin very successfully collaborated with Coronelli, other cartographers were not appreciative of Nolin's adoption of their intellectual property, as De L'Isle successfully sued Nolin for plagiarism in 1705. However, the larger-than-life Nolin always seemed to transcend these challenges, leaving a thriving enterprise to be taken up by his son. The present map was created in 1740 by Jean-Baptiste Nolin II, largely based on earlier maps produced by his father. This work ambitiously endeavours to depict the Americas in the most up-to-date geographic form, drawing upon the most authoritative sources. Ironically, it was the senior Nolin's desire to acquire the most accurate information that caused him to propagate one of the eighteenth-century's greatest cartographic myths. By this time, South America had been quite thoroughly explored, however, the Pacific northwest and the adjacent interior areas of North America remained largely unseen by European eyes. The only prominent feature present in this terra incognita is the mythical Mer de l'Ouest , that sees the Pacific protrude dramatically into the continental landmass. The senior Nolin was the first cartographer to put this detail into print, his campaign of corporate espionage having uncovered a manuscript map by De L'Isle which depicted the sea. This incident was one of the key pieces of evidence that won De L'Isle's lawsuit against Nolin. Although the Mer de l'Ouest is dramatically smaller here than in its original form (and is unlabelled in this map) it sustains a fascinating myth. The highly detailed and relatively accurate depiction of eastern Canada and the Mississippi basin conveys an advanced knowledge of the best French sources. The large landmass looming in the lower-right of the combined image, Indes Meridionales , approximates the presence of Antarctica, but is predicated on speculation rather than any actual discovery of such a landmass. The map features decorative details that represent a social commentary on contemporary European attitudes towards the indigenous peoples they encountered in the New World. The elegant title cartouche formed by period rocaille decoration is inhabited by scenes of the Jesuits evangelizing Christianity to the native peoples. To the lower-left of the combined composition, amidst an elaborate backdrop of exotic tropical vegetation, Mars, the god of war, is shown capriciously watching over two Europeans who are firing rifles onto a group of native Americans, who themselves are engaging in macabre acts of cannibalism. The oceans that lie on either side of the Americas are inhabited by diverse creatures, including sawfish, sea snakes, and flying fish. Numerous ships, some engaged in active combat, allude to the intense contests between European powers for naval supremacy that raged at the time. The tracks of several of the great sea voyages including those of Columbus, Verazanno, Magellan, Quiros, Medaña, and Schouten and Le Maire, traverse the vast maritime spaces. This presented map is certainly one of finest images of the western hemisphere made in the eighteenth-century. A large-scale work of great artistic merit, the finely engraved details comprise not only an elegant geographical rendering of the Americas and the oceans, but showcase a fascinating vision of contemporary European values with respect to their imperialistic ambitions in the New World.

        Mémoires des choses qui se sont passées sous les règnes des Roys de France Henry IV : et Louis XIII.

      S.l., s.d., (ves 1740), - 2 vol. in-folio, [4] ff. n. ch. (feuillets vierges et titre), 300 ff. ; [4] ff. n. ch. et 246 ff., texte manuscrit très lisible dans un encadrement rubriqué (environ 30 lignes par page), veau fauve marbré, dos à nerfs cloisonnés et fleuronnés, pièces de titre et de tomaison, encadrement de triple filet à froid sur les plats, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Des coins et des coupes abimés, mais bon exemplaire. Il s'agit d'une copie très soignée du manuscrit autographe des Mémoires de Fontenay-Mareuil, réalisée pour le duc de Luynes à l'époque où l'original est entré dans les collections de la Bibliothèque royale. Rédigé vraisemblablement pendant la Fronde, ce texte très intéressant fut conservé dans la maison de Gesvres (Léon Potier de Tresmes ayant épousé en 1651 Marie-Françoise-Angélique Du Val, fille unique de Fontenay-Mareuil), jusqu'à ce que le duc de Tresmes en fît cadeau à Louis XV, lequel le fit déposer à la Bibliothèque royale. Il passa donc naturellement dans les collections nationales, et c'est d'après l'autographe que fut donnée en 1826 la première édition imprimée, dans la collection des Mémoires de Petitot, avec une notice assez brève de Monmerqué. L'examen de l'imprimé manifeste que le présent manuscrit y correspond complètement, et donc apparaît une copie de l'autographe. On y retrouve les deux parties imprimées (ici une par volume) : un récit ininterrompu des différents services de l'auteur au Roi (1609 à 1624) ; un recueil de relation distinctes formant chacune un tout et se rapportant à un événement précis : négociations pour le mariage de Gaston d'Orléans avec Mademoiselle de Montpensier (1626 - II, 1-14) ; siège de La Rochelle et secours de Casal (1625-1626 - II, 15-102) ; rupture de Richelieu avec Marie de Médicis et Journée des Dupes (1630-31 - II, 103-127) ; relation des événements depuis la déclaration de la guerre contre l'Espagne jusqu'à la prise de Corbie (1635-37 - II, 128-178) ; incident entre les ambassadeurs d'Espagne et de Portugal (1642 - II, 183-192) ; incident entre Urbain VIII et le duc de Parme (1642, II, 193-200) ; conclave d'Innocent X (1644-47 - II, 201-231). A la fin, on trouvera une copie du Testament de Louis XIV, évidemment sans rapport avec la rédaction primitive. La personnalité de Fontenay-Mareuil (1595-1665) rend ce texte tout à fait primordial : allié à sa mère à la grande tribu des Arnauld, élevé à la Cour, l'auteur avait été enfant d'honneur de Louis XIII et consacra toute sa vie au service militaire et diplomatique du Roi : après avoir accompagné le Duc de Mayenne en Espagne, et le Duc de Nevers à Rastisbonne, il voyagea en Italie, en Hollande et en Angleterre. Lors des troubles intérieurs, il combattit constamment pour la cause royale (1619-1629) ; puis, collaborateur fidèle de Richelieu, puis de Mazarin, il assuma plusieurs ambassades : Angleterre (1630-1633), et Rome (1640-1650). SHF, Bourgeois & André, 736. Exemplaire de la bibliothèque des ducs de Luynes, au château de Dampierre, avec vignette ex-libris contrecollée sur les premières gardes.

      London: John Baskett, 1740.. Broadside, 12 x 15 inches, laid down on archival paper. Large woodcut royal insignia at head, additional elaborate vignette. Two fold lines intersecting in center. Very good. Expertly matted, and protected with Mylar sheet. A interesting proclamation by George II, encouraging private merchant vessels sailing under the British flag to seize and attack the ubiquitous "enemy" whenever the opportunity should arise in America, including ships, goods, settlements, factories, harbors, forts, castles, etc. Issued in the wake of the brief commercial set-to with Spain, The War of Jenkins' Ear, and clearly intended to preserve and extend Britain's grip on the economically potent colonies, this proclamation is the result of continued attacks by Spanish and French ships on British trading vessels returning from America. Further, the proclamation states that the King hopes that such free license in military ventures will encourage young men to join the King's army and navy. An excellent illustration of the commercial struggle being played in American waters by Europe's leading military powers.

"Grassineau published A Musical Dictionary (London, 1740), which Charles Burney and later writers assumed was a mere translation from the French dictionary of Sebastian de Brossard. Hawkins, however, was closer to the truth when he noted that the Dictionary included also considerable matter from other sources. While Grassineau's Dictionary awaits serious studies in textual criticism, it can be said to be the most important dictionary of music published in Britain until the translation of Rousseau's." The New Grove Vol. 7 p. 642.
