        Die wahre und lebendige Natur und Kraft des Creutzes Jesu Christi, zur thätigen Gemeinschafft im Glauben, in einem gerichtlichen Bekänntnisz, von dem Menschen-Tand vindiciret, wodurch es so viele Zeiten her den Menschen-Kindern verborgen und unsichtbar gemacht worden, samt kurtzen Bericht, was dabey zu Stockholm in Schweden pasziret, nebst Communication derer in meritis causæ eingegebenen Schriften, zur einfältigen Prüfung Gott suchender Seelen ausgegeben.

      (Rostock), 1740. 8:o. (16),350,(2 blanka) s. Samtida lätt nött hfrbd med guldornerad rygg och upphöjda bind. Stänkta snitt. Ryggen med ytlig spricka i skinnet. Titelbladet med fuktfläck. Inlednings- och avslutningsvis med fuktfläck i inre marginalen. Fint ex.. Erik Molin (1709-55) svärmade i unga år för pietistiska ideer och fick under 1730-talet möta mycket kritik från kyrkorådet för skrifter och predikningar. 1734 fråntogs han rätten att predika och en utdragen process mot honom påbörjades. Utan att något straff utdömdes fick ärendet vila till hösten 1735. Molin valde dock att under denna tid nonchalera predikoförbudet. Resultatet blev att han ombades att frivilligt lämna landet, vilket han vägrade. Han sattes i häktesförvar i fyra år och därefter dömdes han till landsförvisning. Han reste bl.a. till Rostock, Altona och Amsterdam och utgav under denna tid ett flertal skrifter, många av dem i försök att få landsförvisningen hävd. "Die wahre und lebendige" är troligen den första skrift han utgav efter att landsförvisningen trätt i kraft

        Paye qui Tombe.

      Die erste vale betaelt de Speelman, die laest, de Kosten. Kupferstich mit Untertitel. Amsterdam, J. van Egmont ohne Jahr [um 1740.] Etwa 39 : 42 cm / 61 : 47 cm (Plattenrand / Blattgröße. Der satirische Einblattdruck »[...] 'Paye qui Tombe', (Whoever falls off, pays) depicts a fairground tent in which competitors attempt in turn to dance along a slack rope. There is a discreet number attached to every figure, with a trilingual key. A thesis could be written on this print alone. The Young Pretender (Charles Edward) has just lost his balance, while the Emperor awaits his turn. France and Holland stand by as musicians, while the Old Pretender is peeping anxiously over the hangings of the fairground tent - thus subtly implying that he has not been prepared (or able) to pay the price of admission.« (Satirical Prints, Pamphlets and Polemics. Aberdeen, University o. J. [um 2005], S. 5. Beschreibung zu einem Exemplar aus der MacBean Collection) . - Charles Edward Stuart (1720-1788) beanspruchte die Thronnachfolge in Großbrittanien. Aus seinem franz. Exil plante er die Invasion der brit. Insel. Dieses Vorhaben misslang schlussendlich. Nach abenteuerlicher Flucht durch die schottischen Hochlande gelangte er zurück auf das europ. Festland. Seine Gegner nannten ihn »The Young Pretender« im Gegensatz zu seinem Vater, dem »Old Pretender«. Seine Anhänger bevorzugten die Bezeichnung King Charles III. oder liebevoll, scherzhaft »Bonnie Prince Charlie«. - Es gibt frühere Versionen des Blattes und diese beziehen sich auf den Großvater von Charles Edward Stuart, James II., der hier vom Seil fällt, während Louis XIV. einen Versuch unternimmt, das Seil zu betreten, beobachtet von William III. (cf. Online Archive of California, OAC). - Romeyn de Hooghe, auf dessen Zeichnung die hier vorliegende Karikatur zurück geht, »war nicht nur der erste politische Ikonograph großen Stiles in Holland, sondern auch sein erster großer politischer Karikaturist. Durch seine satir. Darstellungen, hat er den furchtbaren Gegener Hollands, Ludwig XIV., (u. dessen Stuartschen Bundesgenossen, den Prätendenten u. dessen kathol. Anhang) [...] erfolgreich bekämpft [...]. H. ist der wichtigste u. glänzendste Vertreter des holländ. Spätbarocks [...]« (Thieme/Becker 17, 460). - Knickfalten, Ränder etwas ausgefranst und leicht angestaubt. Guter Erhaltungszustand dieses Einblattdruckes, gratiger, kontrastreicher Druck.

Se le carte del Seutter in molto assomigliano a quelle dell'Homann, tanto da non essere talvolta subito distinguibili, ci? che maggiormente le differenzia riguarda il cartiglio, spesso enormemente accresciuto con figure che si rifanno al mito, piuttosto che a qualche potente cui sia dedicata la stampa. Inoltre, non di rado, nella parte inferiore dl foglio, trovano spazio degli scorci di citt?, cosa che costituisce una su caratteristica peculiare rispetto ad altri editori, anche del passato.

        [A collection of engravings of cartouches, architectural fantasies and fans, all in a single album

      Paris: Huquier and others, circa 1740] - 1744 - 1768. 18 suites and 4 unassigned plates in one volume, folio (21 5/8 x 14 inches). Engraved throughout. 150 leaves with 13 titles and 161 plates, all after Lajoue (1 folding, 1 hand-coloured reverse-printed 'vue d'optique' plate), most plates mounted to size, some plates cut to the edge or into the plate area. Mid-nineteenth century green morocco gilt, covers with wide decorative border tooled in gilt, expertly rebacked to style, spine in compartments with double raised bands, lettered gilt. A unique 'sammelband' including the greatest engraved work produced from Jacques de Lajoue drawings: a celebration of French rocaille at its peak, as executed by an exuberant master. Jacques de Lajoue 'is one of a group of masters who, during the last years of Louis XIV's reign, reacted against the conventional austerity and heaviness of form that characterised the art of the 17th century. Gillot, Watteau, Aurèle Meissonier and Gilles-Marie Oppenoord were friends of his. Alongside them he provided work for Gabriel Huquier to engrave. Huquier rendered 39 [sic.] drawings by Lajoue - of ornaments, trophies, griffins [sic.] and architectural monuments ... It was through his influence that the taste for rocaille developed' (Benezit VIII, p.322). Lajoue 'was the son of the architect and master mason Jacques de La Joue and Marguerite Cannaban. He was accepted by the Académie Royale as an architectural painter on 26 April 1721 and he continued to take part in its exhibitions until 1753. He exhibited at the Place Dauphine in 1721 and his success never seems to have waned from this date onwards. He obtained work in several decorative projects in royal palaces and buildings. In 1732, he won great acclaim with a View of the Bibliothèque Ste-Geneviève. From 1730 to 1739, he provided drawings to C. Nicolas Cochin (junior) to be used for engravings ... Lajoue was patronised, in particular, by Mme. de Pomadour... [he] was also a close friend of Nicolas Cochin, de Troy, Lemoyne and Coustou the Elder. (op.cit.) This album was apparently assembled in 1905 or shortly afterwards, perhaps by F.A. Magliss. Cohen/de Ricci (column 589) record a similar 'sammelband' but it includes fewer images: 160 images including titles, as opposed to 174 images in the present work. The order in which the various suites are bound here is the same (with one or two insertions or omissions) as the Cohen/de Ricci example: this suggests that the compiler had knowledge either of the Cohen/de Ricci example or of their description of it. The majority of the plates are mounted to size (a few are cut into the plate mark, but, with two exceptions, the image area is not affected). The Berlin Katalog describes a smaller 'sammelband' basically made up from suites 6-10 and 15 from the present work, and their entry includes two of the 'chinoiserie' plates that are part of suite number 18 in this album. The suites are as follows: 1. Livre Nouveau de Douze Morceaux de Fantasie utile a divers usages. Paris: chez l'Auteur ... et chez la Veuve Chereau, [no date]. Folio. Title and 11 plates after Lajoue by Lucas, Desplaces, Cochin fils, Guélard, Ch. Duflos, Ravenet and Aveline. (5 plates cut to within the plate mark). 2.

Folio. Title and 6 plates after Lajoue by Huquier. A later re-issue. 11. Livre de Vases. Inventés par ... La Joüe. Paris: chez Huquier, [no date]. Folio.

Second Livre de Tableaux et Rocailles. Paris: chez Huquier, [no date]. Folio. Title and 8 plates only (of ?14) after Lajoue by Huquier. This suite is numbered consecutively with number 12, i.e. numbered from 10-18, Cohen/de Ricci records an example of where numbers 12 and 13 combined included a total of '24 pièces'. 14. [Designs for 'écrans à main' i.e. hand-screens or fans]. [Paris:] Huquier, [no date]. Folio. 8 plates after Lajoue by Huquier. (All cut to the edge of the plate area, 2 cut into the plate area but not affectiing the main image area). 15. Livre de divers Esquices [sic.] et Grifonemens. Paris: chez Huquier, [no date]. Octavo.

Cochin (12 shaped designs and 1 rectangular design), extra-illustrated with 1 proof-before-letters, and 3 rectangular versions of three of the shaped designs. (8 plates cut into or close to the plate mark). The shaped designs may also have been intended as designs for 'écrans à main' i.e. hand-screens or fans. 17. [The elements]. Paris: ches [sic.] Basan, [no date]. Folio. 4 plates after Lajoue by F. Basan. (2 plates shaved into the plate mark). This is probably what Cohen/de Ricci calls the 'grands trophées' suite. 18. ['Chinoiserie' plates]. [Paris:] Basan. Folio. 3 plates after Lajoue by F. Basan. (2 plates shaved into the plate mark). 19. [Various subjects]. Paris: [no date]. 4 plates after Lajoue (1 plate present in two states: a normal uncoloured plate, and also a hand-coloured reverse printed 'vue d'optique'). Cf. Benezit VIII, p.322; cf. Berlin Kat. 400 and 401; cf. Cohen/de Ricci 589.

        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 or later]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, in very good condition. 20 7/8 x 23 3/8 inches. 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'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. 49 x 55 inches. 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.
