        Hemelkaart sterrenbeelden - Homann, Doppelmayr, 1742/48.

      HEMELKAART MET STERRENBEELDEN EN STERRENWACHTEN"Hemisphaerium Coeli Australe', kopergravure vervaardigd door Johann Baptist Homann naar het werk van Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr, afkomstig uit de Atlas Coelestis in quo Mundus Spectabilis uitgegeven te Neurenberg 1742 of 1748. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 49,1 x 57,2 cm.Hemelkaart van het zuidelijk halfrond. De sterrenbeelden ? waaronder het Zuiderkruis en Orion - zijn afgebeeld volgens Johannes Hevelius, maar we zien ook exotischere sterrenbeelden zoals Pauw, Toekan en een prachtige eenhoorn met de naam Monoceros. De tabellen links en rechts geven een beschrijving van de sterrenbeelden. De randen van de kaart tonen de vier belangrijkste Europese sterrenwachten in Greenwich, Kopenhagen, Kassel en Berlijn. De stand van de sterren op de kaart is correct voor het jaar 1730.Doppelmayr (1677-1750) was professor in de wiskunde in Neurenberg en schreef over astronomie, geografie, cartografie, trigonometrie, zonnewijzers en wiskundige instrumenten. Homann (1664-1724), een voormalige Dominicaner monnik, was de belangrijkste en meest productieve Duitse cartograaf/uitgever van de 18de eeuw en vervaardigde kaarten en globes die opvielen zowel door hun geografische nauwkeurigheid als bijzondere esthetiek.Prijs: € 2.250,- (incl. lijst) .

        Journey to The World Underground.

      London: T. Astley; Salisbury: Collins. 1742, 1742. First English Edition. 12mo. 324pp. Bound in recent full dark brown speckled calf with burgundy title labels and gilt decoration to spine and boards (Dragonfly binders label to rear pastedown). Handsome. Marbled endpapers. Lacking half title, ink splash to title page and small section of fore-edge otherwise internally clean; florid and rather elegant ownership to rear blank "John Brownjohn, The 26th of October, 1769". A clean, tidy copy. Very good indeed. A bizarre and important title detailing Niels Klim's journey into the underworld and his adventures therein, a satirical fantasy very much in the vein of Gulliver's Travels, albeit a trifle more gothic and lush...the picture of the Potuan denizen alone is worth the price of admission. It is notable from several points but is most widely considered to be one of the earliest science fiction novels, and likely the first to encompass the hollow earth concept as a trope. Hollow earth, lost races, picaresque adventures and a healthy dollop of complete early specualtive lunacy. Awesome.

        Free Thoughts upon the Brute Creation: or, an examination of Father Bougeant's Philosophical Amusement, &c. In two letters to a lady.

      Printed for R. Minors. -43 1742 - FIRST EDITION, 2 parts in 1 vol., with an engraved frontispiece to first part, piece torn from fore-margin of H2 in first part with the loss of 8 letters on the recto and 2 on the verso (sense recoverable), some spots and stains, outside pages browned, pp. [iv], 64; [ii, ?lacking half-title], 88, 8vo, calf backed boards of c. 1950, red lettering piece, sound. 'Hildrop published various fugitive essays of a satirical and polemical character, chiefly directed against deists, either anonymously [as here] or under the pseudonyms of Phileleutherus Britannicus and Timothy Hooker. Though of slight intrinsic value, they are written in an unusually nervous, yet easy and entertaining style. These include An Essay for the Better Regulation and Improvement of Free-Thinking (1739) and The Contempt of the Clergy Considered (1739); the latter argued for the liberation of the church from state control. His Letter to a member of parliament containing a proposal to revise, amend, or repeal the Ten Commandments is an amusing jeu d'esprit. On its first appearance in 1738 it was attributed to Swift, but it appears in Hildrop's Miscellaneous Works (1754), along with A Modest Apology for the Ancient and Honourable Family of the Wrongheads and Some Memoirs of the Life of Simon Sallow. In 1740 Hildrop became a regular contributor to the Weekly Miscellany. In 1741 his An Essay on Honour appeared and in 1742 he printed a work attempting to prove that animals' souls are degraded because of the fall of man, based on Guillaume Hyacinthe Bougeant's Philosophical Amusement' (ODNB). With the exception of Wrongheads, the other works mentioned above are listed as 'lately printed for R. Minors', on the verso of the half-title to partr one. (ESTC T82058)

        [in Greek, transliterated as] Tou en Hagiois Patros Hemon Ioustinou philosophou kai Martyros Ta heuriskomena panta, [then in roman] S.P.N. Justini philosophi et martyris opera quæ exstant [sic] omnia.

      Paris: Sumptibus Carolii Osmont Large folio (42.6 cm, 16.75"). [3] ff., cxxviii, 657 [i.e., 653], [1] pp.. 1742 Principal edition of the collected works of Saint Justin Martyr (ca. 100–165), "much the greatest figure" of Christian apologists since the Apostles (NCE). The first Latin translation of his works did not appear until 1554. This is the => authoritative edition edited by Prudent Maran (1683–1762), who reordered the works so that Justin's Dialogue with Trypho follows his two apologies, according to the original sequence. Only these three documents, which survive in later manuscripts, are surely his; however many other works are attributed to Justin. The present text contains the Dialogue, Apology I–II, and more, with biographical documents appended. The text, in Latin and Greek, is divided into two sections: a preface in 15 short chapters, and the main text. The former is printed in roman and italic with nice woodcut head- and tailpieces, and one historiated woodcut initial. Sidenotes, footnotes, and woodcut ornaments like those in the former section enhance the main text, which is printed double column in parallel Latin and Greek, with two handsome engraved initials on the first page below a finely engraved vignette by J. B. Guélard (fl. ca. 1730) after a drawing by A. Humblot (fl. ca. 1740). The title-page, printed in red and black, has an engraved device by [Nicolas-Jean-Baptiste] de Poilly (1707–80). This copy also has a half-title page. Contemporary treed calf triple-ruled in blind on covers, spine gilt extra with author and title gilt to red morocco spine label, board edges with gilt double-rule, marbled endpapers in a stone pattern and matching marbled edges, emerald green ribbon place holder. Upper joint starting with volume strong despite this and its large size; boards scuffed, corners bumped and rubbed revealing boards; stains on pastedowns and endpapers from underlying turn-ins of the binding. Light foxing in a few places, thumbsoiling, and occasional small stains; one leaf with a corner torn away, another with a natural paper flaw, a few leaves creased. A good copy of a => very imposing book.

Edition originale. Remarquable catalogue de la typographie au XVIIIe siècle qui donne tous les caractères les plus élégants fondus depuis le siècle précédent jusqu'en 1742. « Lamesle avait acheté en 1737 l'ancienne fonderie de Jean Cot qui possédait des caractères de Garamont ou de ses imitateurs, de Robert Granjon, de Jean Jannon qui ont connu une large diffusion à travers l'Europe. En 1758, ayant vendu son établissement, Lamesle partit pour Avignon où il créa une nouvelle fonderie. Parmi les caractères proposés dans ce volume figure un « Cicero gros oeil » de Robert Granjon que l'on reconnait dans les inventaires de Plantin. On peut aussi noter la présence d'un autre Cicero, dit « La Police » qui avait servi à imprimer en 1705, le Traité de la Police de Nicolas de La Mare. Ce carctère qui comportait certaines carctéristiques des « Romains du Roi » avait été gravé par Mathieu Malherbe Des Portes dont le nom figure dans un document manuscrit de la main de Fournier le Jeune publié apr Mme Jeanne Veyrin-Forrer dans La Lettre et le Texte » (Jammes) Rare première édition de ces épreuves dont il existe une nouvelle émission publiée par Nicolas Gando en 1758.

        Maankaart - Homann, Doppelmayr, Hevelius, 1742/48.

      BELANGRIJKE MAANKAART"Tabula Selenographica', kopergravure vervaardigd door Johann Baptist Homann naar het werk van Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr, afkomstig uit de Atlas Coelestis uitgegeven te Neurenberg 1742 of 1748. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 48,5 x 58 cm.De linker maankaart wordt een beschouwd als een fundamentele kaart in de selenografie - de cartografie van de maan. Deze kaart verscheen voor het eerst in Johannes Hevelius' Selenographia uit 1647 dat de basis heeft gelegd voor veel cartografische studies van de maan. Hier wordt de maan afgebeeld zoals dat nooit vanaf de aarde zou kunnen, met alle zichtbare kenmerken op een zelfde schaal. Hevelius stelt hier ook dat het maanoppervlak moet worden weergegeven alsof het wordt belicht vanuit een enkele bron, in dit geval het ochtend licht.De kaart rechts is bedacht door de jezuïeten Giovanni Battista Riccioli en Francesco Grimaldi en verscheen voor het eerst in hun Almagestum Novum in 1651. Het was een belangrijke kaart vanwege z"n geheel nieuwe nomenclatuur die voor een groot deel tot op de dag van vandaag nog in gebruik is. Onder hun benamingen ook de Mare Tranquillitatis, bekend als de landingsplek van het eerste bemande ruimtetoestel, de Apollo 11.Links boven de voorstelling zien we putti"s in de weer met een telescoop, rechts zien we Selene de godin van de maan. Verschillende kleinere kaarten tonen de maan in haar maandelijkse cyclus.Prijs: 2.250,- (incl. lijst) .

        A Genealogical History of the House of Yvery; in Its Different Branches of Yvery, Luvel, Perceval, and Gournay.

      London: Printed for H. Woodfall, jun., 1742 - Seven books in two volumes, complete. AN OUTSTANDING SET, IN FIRST STATE AND ABSOLUTELY COMPLETE, OF THE FIRST AND ONLY EDITION OF ONE OF THE RAREST, MOST IMPORTANT, AND BEST-PRODUCED GENEALOGICAL WORKS OF THE 18th CENTURY. 1 leaf; xxxvii pp.; 1 leaf; 30, 457 pp.; 4 leaves; 533 pp. plus 16 genealogical tables on 10 inserted leaves; 8 double-page genealogical tables; one larger folding double-page genealogical table; 10 etched and engraved plates (mainly views of estates); and 19 fine portraits (COMPLETE, incuding 18 mezzotints engraved by John Faber, and an engraving by William Henry Toms after Van Dyck and Lempriere. The five Rawdon portraits, intended for a different work but sometimes inserted into this one, are not present). The introduction is in the first state, before the cancelation of p. xxxvii (later copies have xli pages in the introduction). Moreover, pp. [453-460] of volume II, printed in 1765 and rarely found, are present. This set is extra-illustrated with an engraved portrait (1807) of John Perceval in volume I and with an engraved view (1783) of Enmore Castle in volume II. Lowndes, who examined only second-state copies of this work, asserts that pp. 446-447 of volume II are missing. IN THE SET I OFFER THESE PAGES ARE PRESENT. (The reason for this discrepancy is that quire Lll of volume II was re-set to eliminate a lengthy--two page--screed on the privileges of the nobility. That screed is present in the copy I offer, but in few others.) Lowndes also mistakenly calls for a map of part of the estate of John Perceval, which was in fact printed long after this work and does not form part of it, although it is sometimes found bound in. The fact that almost all of the portraits are executed in mezzotint indicates how small the press run was: only 25 to 50 impressions of a mezzotint could be taken before the plate would have shown signs of wear (and the impressions in this set are uniformly rich and brilliant). A few of the known sets of this work, indeed, are missing the portraits (which is even more understandable since the mezzotint portraits were engraved after the book was printed, some of them as late as 1747). The dozens of in-text coats of arms (and the vignettes on the fly-titles of all of the individual books) are engraved on copper, not wood, demonstrating that no expense was spared in the production of this lavish publication. The attractive engraved Northwick armorial bookplate (motto: "Par ternis suppar") in each volume. Beautifully printed on fine handmade Dutch laid paper, with the title-pages printed in red and black. Royal 8vo. ELEGANTLY BOUND BY SAMUEL CHARLES SMITH (signed) c. 1810 in full forest green morocco, covers gilt, spines elaborately gilt in six compartments. All edges gilt. Only tiny traces of wear, else A BRIGHT AND FINE SET. Lowndes I, 40 (giving an extensive collation); Lewine, p. 28; Graesse I, 116; Brunet I, 262; Moule DXLII (giving an astronomical price of 15 to 30 guineas in 1822.) Very rare. An important source for Norman and English history, and an impressive example of 18th-century English book production at its finest. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Boston: Samuel Kneeland and Timothy Green, 1742-1743; 1742-1755.. Two volumes. [2],14,28,[2],337,[1],339-340; [2],4,403,415- 424,435-455pp. Folio. Contemporary calf, worn. Library stamps, ink ownership signatures, and slight chipping to titlepages, a few short repaired tears, scattered ink marginalia and notations in the text, some foxing, moderate overall toning. A good set. In matching cloth clamshell cases. A vast collection of mid-18th-century laws of Massachusetts. This first work includes, as is often the case with this and earlier collected editions, the separately issued CHARTER (here bound first) and the full compilation of ACTS AND LAWS printed in 1742. Such compilations often are found with subsequent Massachusetts laws. Present here is one additional act from 1743, entitled, "An Act in Addition to and in Explanation of sundry Clauses of an Act intitled An Act to ascertain the Value of Money and of the Bills of publick Credit of this Province...." ^The copy of TEMPORARY ACTS AND LAWS here gathers together over 400 pages of a continuous run of Massachusetts session laws printed between 1742 and 1753, plus a few acts printed 1754- 55 (almost continuously paginated, but lacking a few acts to make the run entirely complete). Together, this single volume of laws represents forty- seven separate entries in Evans, and constitutes a remarkable assemblage of early Massachusetts law. A rare source for colonial legal, political, and social history in Massachusetts.

        Carte D'Amerique Dressée pour l'Usage du Roy...1739. America Accurate in Imperia, Regna, Status & Populos Divisa, ad Usum Ludovici XV, Galliarum Regis

      Amsterdam: Covens & Mortier, 1742. Engraving with period outline colour. Some mild soiling. Discolouration at centerfold. An elegant map of North and South America, the most accurate to date, produced for the "usage du Roy," Louis XV. Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was the son of a cartographer and pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. Jean (Johannes) Covens and Corneille (Cornelius) Mortier were brothers-in-law, who carried on the book publishing business established by Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam in 1685. Pierre Mortier's company owed much of its success to his access to French publishers, whose publications he re-issued in handsome editions.The elder Mortier died in 1711; his wife continued the firm until she died in 1719. In 1721, Covens and Mortier formed a partnership, Covens having married Agatha Mortier in the same year. They continued the business by publishing enlarged editions of Sanson, Jaillot, and De L'Isle, as well as some of the later Dutch cartographical masters such as De Wit and Allard, and of course Pierre Mortier. This map is from an edition of De L'Isle entitled, Atlas Nouveau, Contenant Toutes Les Parties Du Monde, Ou sont exactement Remarquées les Empires, Monarchies, Royaumes, Etats, Republiques &c. Par Guillaume de l'Isle. Premier Géographe de sa Majesté. It is his map of North and South America shown on a large enough scale that western Europe and Africa are included. The map includes the rectification of South America's eastern coast line, correcting a map of South America whose Chilean-Argentinian peninsula swung to the west. The map also includes a Prime Meridian declared by Louis XIII, but not adopted and Pope Alexander VI's Line of Demarcation that divided the world (outside of Europe) between Portugal and Spain. Finally, it should be noted that De l'Isle resisted the temptation to depict California as an island, which was being done by many mapmakers of the period. Koeman, C&M 7, #98.

Francesco Redi (Arezzo, 18 febbraio 1626 – Pisa, 1 marzo 1697) è stato un medico, naturalista e letterato italiano. Egli è il fondatore della biologia sperimentale, ed è soprannominato come il "Padre della parassitologia moderna". Redi è considerato uno dei più grandi biologi di tutti i tempi. Pubblicò un gran numero di ricerche naturalistiche, che destarono grande interesse in tutta Europa. Nelle "Osservazioni Intorno alle Vipere" dimostrò che il veleno di questi animali, contrariamente alla comune opinione dell'epoca, è dannoso solo se inoculato nella ferita e non se ingerito. Particolarmente importanti sono le sue "Esperienze Intorno alla Generazione degl'Insetti" del 1668, nato da una lettera a Carlo Dati, in cui confutò la teoria della generazione spontanea, allora generalmente accettata, con un approfondito studio sperimentale della riproduzione delle mosche. Nel lavoro scientifico di Redi più ancora dei risultati ottenuti è essenziale il metodo usato, che gli assicura un posto di grande rilievo nella storia del metodo sperimentale.

        Amerique Septentrionale Suivant la Carte de Pople faite à Londres en 20 feuilles

      Paris: "Par et chez le Sr. le Rouge", 1742. Copper-engraved map, period hand colouring in outline. A handsome French edition of the key map from the first large-scale map of colonial North America. This example the very rare first state. Henry Popple produced the map on which this reduced "key" map is based under the auspices of the Lord Commissioners of Trade and Plantations to help settle disputes arising from the rival expansion of English, Spanish and French colonies. "France claimed not only Canada, but also territories drained by the Mississippi and its tributaries - in practical terms, an area of half a continent" (Goss The Mapping Of North America p.122.) Popple's map, in 20 sheets, with a single sheet key map, was first published in 1733. In the present French version of the key map, the area assigned to France has been expanded at the expense of both Spain and Great Britain. The only other major alteration is the addition to the lower margin of a second longitude scale based on a meridian running through Paris rather than London. The map's coverage extends from the Grand Banks off Newfoundland to about ten degrees west of Lake Superior, and from the Great Lakes to the north coast of South America. The right hand margin is adorned with 18 small but handsome inset maps or plans of Boston, Charles-Town, Providence, Bermuda, among others. The present example is the first state of the key map, prior to the addition of New Orleans.

Dodsley, 1742, in-8, [2]-XVI-311-16 pages, 15 planches gravées sur cuivre, veau brun, dos à nerfs, pièce de titre rouge, filets d'encadrement sur les plats, Édition originale de cet ouvrage important de Henry Baker (1698-1774), qui contribua à populariser l'usage du microscope et qui connut de nombreuses réimpressions. Il se divise en deux parties : la première, "The nature, uses, and magnifying powers of the belt kinds of microscopes.", décrivant les nombreuses sortes de microscopes et la manière de les utiliser (Wilson, Cuff, Culpeper.) ; la seconde, "An account of what surprizing discoveries have been already made by the miscroscope.", dédiée à l’observation d'espèces diverses. Ami de Cuff, Baker était le type même du "polymathe" du XVIIIe siècle ; il trouva, par l’étude de la nature au travers du microscope un "nouveau sens de l'homme". (Harald Moe, Story of the Microscope, p. 92). Exemplaire enrichi de la planche n° 5, représentant le microscope solaire, qui sera ajoutée à l'édition de 1744, ici complétée par un croquis au crayon. Également rajouté : un feuillet manuscrit de l'époque, dépliant, comprenant la copie d'une note figurant dans la seconde édition, à la page 98, relative au polype, et la transcription des observations de Martin Folkes sur le polype, présentées à la Royal Society ; ces observations feront l'objet d'une publication de Baker en 1743, An attempt towards a natural history of the polype. L'auteur de ce feuillet y a soigneusement dessiné à la plume 5 figures. Dos habilement refait. Réparation en marge d'une planche. DSB I, pp. 410-412. Wellcome II p. 88 (pour la seconde édition).

En 1731 redacta sus lecciones en su libro'Elementa Chemiae' que fue sin duda el mas importante de los primitivos textos de quimica, ya que recoge todos los conocimientos que se tenian en ese entonces acerca de la quimica. Para resumir la importancia de Boerhaave en el campo de la quimica,vale indicar que concibió dicha ciencia como entidad independientede otra rama del saber, y debe reconocersele el merito de haber sido el primero en aplicar los principios newtonianos a la quimica (durante 12 años fue el único partidario en Leyde de Newton)y gracias a esto, adquirió un fundamento cuantitativo que nunca habia tenido antes. Cuando Boerhaave inició sus experimetos quimicos, aun se conservaban las creencias y nociones de la alquimia, pero durante su carrera logró desterrar algunas ideas y supo tomar los principios importantes de sus antecesores (aunque la que se referia a la transmutacion de los metales no desaparecio tan facilmente). En una serie de experimentosd que duraron varios años logró demostrar que la "materi ignea" no tiene peso, y que una masa de hierro pesa lo mismo a la temperatura ambiente que cuando esta al rojo.

        Partie Septentrionale De La Souabe [and] Partie Meridionale De La Souabe

      Amsterdam: Cóvens & Mortier, 1742. Engraved with period outline colour. Collection stamp on verso. This attractive pair of maps of Swabia is from a Dutch edition of De L'Isle entitled, Atlas Nouveau, Contenant Toutes Les Parties Du Monde, Ou sont exactement Remarquées les Empires, Monarchies, Royaumes, Etats, Republiques &c. Par Guillaume de l'Isle. Premier Géographe de sa Majesté. It was published by Covens and Mortier, brothers-in-law who continued the firm established by Pierre Mortier. Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. This pair of maps form at large, detailed view of Swabia, one of the ten circles of the Holy Roman Empire and containing some of the historically most interesting and culturally rich parts of Germany. The region includes towns prosperous and important in the Northern Renaissance : Nuremberg, Augsburg, Ulm, and others, the Necker and Danube Rivers and the Bodensee at the border with Switzerland.

        A Map of the British Empire in America with the French, Spanish and the Dutch Settlements adjacent thereto

      Amsterdam: printed for John Covens and Cornelius Mortier, 1742. Copper-engraved map on four sheets, key map, sheet of harbor maps all hand-coloured in outline; 4 engraved views of Quebec, New York, Niagara Falls. Seven sheets, each 26 x 21 1/2 inches. An important association copy of the Covens and Mortier edition of the famous Popple map, annotated by Peter Wraxall: a man intimately associated with the establishment and setting of boundaries in colonial America. Henry Popple produced this map under the auspices of the Lord Commissioners of Trade and Plantations to help settle disputes arising from the rival expansions of English, Spanish and French colonies. "France claimed not only Canada, but also territories drained by the Mississippi and its tributaries - in practical terms, an area of half a continent" (Goss The Mapping of North America p.122.) The thrust of British mapmaking after 1718 was to establish her presence cartographically on the French. Hence the title "The British Empire in America..."Nevertheless, in making the map, Popple used the best available geographical information: Colonel Barnwell's map of the southeast; De L'Isle's "Carte de la Louisiane"; Cadwallader Colden's map of the Iroquois nations, and seems to have come up with a map that did not please imperialistic British viewers as much as it did those who only wanted an accurate depiction. The result was and is a vast map of North America never before delineated in such detail, and a source of delight and intrigue. The map was eventually very successful and there were several editions. Babinksi notes that George Washington owned a copy of the Key map (Popple's abbreviated version) and Benjamin Franklin ordered two copies for the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1746 and another in 1752. The Popple and Mitchell (1755) maps were the most important maps of North America made in the 18th century and were widely known and referred to throughout the formation of the United States. This example is the second state of the edition published by Covens and Mortier in Amsterdam, circa 1742. Covens & Mortier was a highly respected Amsterdam map publishing firm, which, more than any of their colleagues, maintained the high standards established by the Dutch and French cartographers of the previous century. The seven page Popple map appeared in the Covens & Mortier edition of De l'Isle's Atlas Nouveau . The Covens and Mortier version of Popple offers in a rather more manageable and accessible form all the geographical and political material of the original, including the depiction of Wager's sea battle with the Spanish near Cartagena in 1707. The region in question, the Eastern half of North America and a portion of northern South America, is laid out on four sheets, which joined would be roughly 43 x 52 inches. Each sheet is titled with its content. In addition to this are three more sheets: the Key map, a sheet with four views: Mexico City, New York, Quebec and Niagara Falls, and a sheet with eighteen harbor and island plans from Annapolis Royal in Nova Scotia to Porto Bello in Panama. It is unusual to have the Key map, as it was frequently separated from the others and framed by itself. This copy is further individualized in that it is the Wraxall-Dunkin-Van Rensslaer copy. It originally belonged to and was annotated by Peter Wraxall (d. 11 July 1759). He was an Englishman, who settled in New York and became involved in the relations between the Colony and the Iroquois Confederacy, which was a critical element in Britain's rivalry with France, writing several reports on the history of relations between whites and Iroquois in New York. Wraxall was William Johnson's secretary and, in battle, aide-de-camp, for the first two years of the French and Indian War. The atlas from which this map was removed subsequently passed to Elizabeth Dunkin (d.1846, niece of Wraxall's wife Elizabeth), who gave it to her son-in-law John Sanders Van Rensslaer (1792-1868). Wraxall limits his annotations to the upper left sheet; he notes in the lower left corner of the margin that the so-called 'Lake Illinois' "in the Maps published by Jefferies 19th Feby. 1753 this Lake is named Mishigan & he runs the limits of the 6 Nations to the Branch of the Missisipi called in the above Map River Msingona". In addition he has added a sub-title (Native American name) to Lake Erie. Mark Babinski Henry Popple's 1733 map (New Jersey, 1998) (ref); Cumming, The Southeast in Early Maps 249; E.

        Shells]

      Florence 1742 - Hand-coloured engraving. Dimensions: 380 by 250mm. (15 by 10 inches). From "Index Testarum Conchyliorum", first edition. Giuseppe Menabuoni and Antonio Pazzi were both Italian painters and printmakers and Niccolò Gualtieri was a medical doctor and professor at the University of Pisa, whose avocation was the study of molluscs. He devised a system of classification of the shells for this book, which was admired by the zoologists, such as Jean-Baptiste Lamarck. Menabuoni's splendid plates reproduce specimens of Gualtieri's shells, some of which are still in the collection of the Museum of Natural History and the Territory in the Certosa di Calci, operated under the auspices of the University of Pisa. They are at once scientific studies, and also decorative works of art exhibiting the interplay of the natural colors, textures, and shapes of the shells in an Italianate arrangement.
