Praecipua orbis terrarum imperia,. " 1756 in which he republished maps of his father in law. Good dark impression; bright colours. Seutter, Matthäus (The Elder): 1678?"1757. Seutter was an engraver, globe-maker and publisher. Born in Augsburg in 1685, the son of a goldsmith. Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg in 1697, apprenticed as an engraver to Johann Baptist Homann. in 1707 later he returned to Augsburg subsequently working in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in the city. He founded the Seutter publishing house and print shop in 1710, producing maps, atlases, and globes., which became a primary competitor to Homann. Very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and none of the necessary connections to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Therefore Seutter copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models (approximately 500 pieces). His "Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt' appeared in 1725 with 46 maps: the "Atlas Novus" various editions in 1728, 1730, 1736, 1742; the "Grosser Atlas" in 1734 with 131 maps, and the pocket atlas "Atlas minor in 1744 with 64 maps. After Matthäus Seutter died in 1757, his son, Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Tobias Conrad Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the business for five more years. Lotter, Tobias Conrad, 1717-1777. Lotter was an engraver at his father in law's publishing house. Upon Seutter's retirement Lotter took control of the firm and republished many of his maps with minor updates and changes. In his "Atlas minor.Praecipua orbis terrarum imperia,.." he added his name as publisher; later when he had full control he would re engrave the titles inserting his own name. In time, Lotter became one of the most prominent mid 18th century map publishers . Europe Northern & Eastern Europe Copenhagen

        "Collection of Ships of War, from a First Rate to a Frigate, According to their Present Construction, by N. Pocock, 1782"

      Oblong 4to. scrapbook, 9 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches; 34 drawings in ink and watercolor. Nicholas Pocock, 1741-1821, was a renowned English marine artist who made his mark as one of the major painters of the Age of Nelson. His work appeared in the Naval Chronicle and in other books and periodicals of this era. He went to sea at an early age and sailed with the Royal Navy to America and the West Indies, and he began exhibiting at the Royal Academy in 1782, the date of this sketchbook. The book was sold at an auction of Pocock family property held in London in 1913. It was listed in that sale as, ?"Drawings in water-colours and Indian ink of ?'Ships of War...?' including the Dragon, 74 guns, and a 90 gun ship of the line, with dimensions, also tracings of hulls &c, prefixed by an emblematic title-page.?" In fact, the album contains, in addition to the Dragon, a beautiful watercolor of a ship in rough seas, showing the submerged portion of the vessel, port and starboard ink renderings of a 64 gun ship, ink and wash drawing of two ships at anchor, 32 gun Hermione, with dimensions, colored detail of decorative scrollwork, ink sketches of Courageous, watercolored drawing of 74 gun Ganges, colored drawing of unnamed ship of the line, 2 watercolors of hulks, tracing of Triton, overlaying grid of measurements, tracing of Endymion, watercolor, with measurements of 32 gun frigate, ditto 28 gun frigate, outline of Hermione, 32 gun, ink drawing of Arethusa, with table of dimensions, and another dozen or so sketches and drawings that shed much light on Pocock?'s working methods, as we see him figuring scale and proportions within broader compositions, and recording minutia of rigging, deckwork and armament. Some of the drawings are made directly on the album pages; many are tipped in. The final drawing, of the Arethusa, has been laid down and has some paper loss. A unique item, bound in later full leather, housed in clamshell box.

Rare édition de ce traité de balistique, orné de 39 planches représentant pour la plupart les calculs et projections géométriques, pour les autres, les armes et instruments de mesures propre à l'artillerie ; et composé en trois parties : 1. Sur le mécanisme de la poudre (où il est traité de la force de la poudre, son effet, son action et ses conséquences sur le dosage de la charge proportionnellement au poids du boulet, l'épaisseur de la bouche à feu.). 2. Sur les projections (mouvements et projections, calculs balistiques calqués sur les observations et les théories de Galilée.). 3. Sur les percussions (à propos de la construction des batteries, sur l'effet de l'évacuation des gaz après les tirs.). Cette publication fait suite aux nombreux travaux du XVIIIe siècle pour perfectionner l'artillerie, dix ans après le premier traité emblématique en matière de balistique, celui de Belidor. Joseph Dulacq (1706-1756) était un brillant capitaine de l'armée piémontaise, commandant l'école d'Artillerie de Turin. Bien qu'ayant attiré sur lui de fréquentes disgrâces, pour son caractère emporté, Dulacq offre ici une très belle dédicace à son prince Charles Emmanuel III, Duc de Savoie, qui fit preuve de réels talents militaires lors de la conquète du Milanais.

        La Famille de Marêchal

      Moyreau, Paris 1741 - Hand-coloured engraving on laid paper by Moyreau. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing, mild rippling, and a small stain in the top right corner of the sheet. A few small brown and black spots in the left margin. A fine composition showing a soldier or cavalryman returning home to his family. 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. In addition to his hunting scenes, Wouwerman's varied and substantial repertoire of subjects included military and battle scenes, landscapes, travellers, animals and genre subjects. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs , vol 14, p. 723.

"Second edition, corrected and amended," with the history brought down to the date of publication, and including for the first time the story of William Penn and the Indian princess, as told by Penn to the author. A basic 18th-century reference work on British America. This is the second edition, considerably enlarged and expanded from the first edition of 1708. The first volume is devoted to the North American colonies and includes maps of North America, the islands of Canada, New England, Virginia and Maryland, and Carolina and Bermuda. The second volume covers the British colonies in the West Indies and contains maps of Barbados, Jamaica, and St. Kitts and Antigua. An important contemporary work, which probably would have been the first point of reference for any Englishman at the time. Oldmixon's name is signed to the dedication of the first edition only, and Sabin suggests authorship be attributed to Moll, who produced the maps. HOWES O61. SABIN 57157. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 741/164.

        Nicolai Klimii iter Subterraneum Novem Telluris Theoriam AC Historiam Quintæ Monarchiæ Adhuc Incognitæ Exhibens e Bibliotheca B. Abelini (this Latin title being better known to English-lauguage readers as: Niels Klim's Journey to the World Underground)

      Sumpibus Jacobi Preussii, Hafniæ & Lipsiæ, 1741. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. [Holberg, Ludvig]. Author's name not stated on title page. Nicolai Klimii iter Subterraneum Novem Telluris Theoriam ac Historiam Quintæ Monarchiæ Adhuc Incognitæ Exhibens e Bibliotheca B. Abelini (this Latin title being better known to English-language readers as: Niels Klim's Journey to the World Underground). Sumpibus Jacobi Preussii, Hafniæ & Lipsiæ. 1741. First edition. The first important use in fiction of Edmond Halley's theory that the earth (and other planets) consist of concentric nested spheres surrounding a small central sun. Our hero falls through the earth's crust into the earth's hollow interior where he finds a small sun and the planet, Nazar, circling it. He has adventures on Nazar with its nonhuman intelligent beings. Bound in Early vellum over boards with title hand-lettered on spine (the same binding as the Wollheim copy.) Frontispiece and three plates, one of which is a fold-out page. Three former owners' small signatures on title page, one with short note dated 1812, old library stamp on title page, first page of text creased where fold-out plate faces it, a common fault, browning and foxing throughout as usual. The vellum shows the usual patina and dust soiling imparted by age. Very good. These early books were not issued in dust jackets..
