They issued a later edition of that map (shown here) in about 1745 with the additional subtitle ?Nouvellement corrigée apres les dernieres Decouvertes faites par l?Academie de Petersbough.?The map consists of two central hemispheres, eastern and western, surrounded by four smaller polar projections. The right hand projections focus on the Northern Hemisphere while the left hand projections depict the Southern. At top center there is an elaborate decorative cartouche with various allegorical elements depicting the four great continents in female form, from top left: America, Europa, Africa, and Asia.The routes of a number of the most famous explorers of the major oceans of the world are shown from 1542 to approximately 1730, ending with the Russian voyages of Chirikov and Bering.Some of the more noteworthy features of the map includes the Russian explorations along the Northwestern coast of America, Aleutian islands shown in a semi-mythical configuration and attached to a highly conjectural Alaska; Edmund Halley?s sighting of Antarctic ice; Bouvet?s large Cap de la Circoncision; A depiction of the tracks of François Pelsaert?s route from Australia to Java; Carpentaria attached to New Guinea; Abel Tasman?s route, along with a depiction of Tasmania, distinctly separate from Australia. The map also retains one of the more curious peninsula depictions of California.Price: ?2.250,-.

        Daphnis et Chloe

      1745. LONGUS. Les Amours Pastorales de Daphnis et Chloé. [Paris]: no publisher, 1745. Small octavo, contemporary full speckled polished calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, red morocco spine label, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $3200.Second edition of this delightfully illustrated French translation of Longus’ classic, the first pastoral prose romance, with engraved title page and 29 fine copper-engravings, 13 double-page, after original drawings by Philippe duc d’Orléans, Regent during the minority of Louis XV. A very handsome copy in contemporary French calf-gilt binding.“The reputation of this little book derives primarily from the story of how it came into being. In 1714 Prince Philippe d’Orléans made a series of drawings for the story of Daphnis and Chloe under the tutelage of Antoine Coypel, the father of Charles-Antoine Coypel. At the beginning of his Regency the drawings were engraved by Benoît Audran and published in [the 1718] edition of Longus’ pastoral novel… The prestige conferred by the participation of Philippe d’Orléans made Daphnis et Chloé a fixture in the collections of French bibliophiles (it came to be known as ‘the Regent’s book’), and it is often found in elaborate bindings” (Ray). Written by Longus in the second or third century A.D., Daphnis and Chloe is considered the first pastoral prose romance; the translation into French is by Jacques Amyot, with notes by A. Lancelot. The very scarce 1718 first edition is reputed to have consisted of only 250 copies. Two editions were issued in 1745, with the same illustrations as the 1718 edition—though re-engraved—differing slightly in the setting of text and the order of the engraved headpieces (no priority established). With the “Les petits pieds” plate by the Comte de Caylus bound in near the end of the book, only “sometimes added” to copies, “better known than any of the original illustrations,” perhaps due to its “mildly suggestive” content. Engraved title page dated 1718, the year of the first edition. Cohen-de Ricci 652. Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book 2B. A fine, wide-margined copy of “The Regent’s Book,” desirable in lovely contemporary French calf-gilt.

        Carte du Piemont et du Monferrat Dressée sur plusieurs Cartes.. Amsterdam, c. 1745.

      1745. incisione originale in rame, mm. 490x645 e margini abilmente colorata da mano coeva. Nell'angolo superiore destro grande cartiglio con il titolo, a sinistra un secondo grande cartiglio con l'Acertissement e la scala miliare.Rara e dettagliata carta relativa ai territori piemontesi del tempo comprendenti: La Principauté de Piémont, les Marquisats de Saluce et de Suze, les Comtés de Nice et d'Ast, le Montferrat, corrisponde al foglio n. 2 dell'edizione del 1707 del cartografo francese Charles Hubert Jaillot (1632-1714), riedita da Covens-Mortier nel 1710. Pieter (Pierre) Mortier (1661-1711) ed il fratello David, editori di origine francese trasferitesi ad Amsterdam, raccolsero materiale cartografico di tutte le principali botteghe del diciassettesimo secolo, ripubblicando a proprie spese, a scopo commerciale, molte delle opere della famiglia Sanson, Blaeu e di altri editori che li avevano preceduti. Alla morte di Pierre, la tipografia fu proseguita dal figlio Cornelis (1699-1783), che sposando la sorella di un altro importante editore, Johannes Covens (1697-1774), fondò la tipografia Covens e Mortier, che divenne presto la più importante firma dell'editoria cartografica in Olanda e quindi in Europa. Sotto la loro firma uscirono, postume, le pubblicazioni dei più importanti cartografi del secolo precedente, quali Sanson, Jaillot, De l'Isle, Visscher, De Wit ed altri. Il seguente corpus di mappe è tratto da uno dei loro tanti e diversi atlanti "compositi", ovvero contenenti carte di differenti cartografi. Per la prima volta incluse nella ristampa del Theatrum di Johannes Blaeu, edita nel 1704 da Pierre Mortier, sono tratte dal Atlas Nouveau pubblicato circa nel 1708 e successivamente ristampato.

Contemporary calf, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red and black morocco lettering piece in the second and third, the other with a repeat decoration in gilt, expert repairs at joints and top and tail of spine Provenance: John Rolle, 1st Baron Rolle (armorial bookplate) A very fine set of the first edition of one of the first accurate records of Middle-Eastern antiquities and culture to be published in the modern era. After graduating from Oxford, Pococke spent three years travelling in the Middle East, from 1735 to 1738. Upon his return he combined determined scholarly curiosity with artistic ability of the highest order. In his work, he provides descriptions of all aspects of the region, its history and cultures, illustrated by detailed plans and fine plates of costumes, plants and views. As one of the first Englishmen to record his journey up the Nile, his beautifully illustrated account is particularly valuable as an early record of Egyptian antiquities as they stood at the start of the modern era. Pococke visited Thebes and travelled as far south as Philae and the First Cataract at Philae. On his return journey northwards he met, by chance, Danish traveller Frederik Norden (1708-1742). Norden continued southwards, eventually reaching Derr. Both travellers made careful drawings of the Great Sphinx at Giza, but Pococke employed some artistic license and replaced the colossal statue's missing nose. The publication of the present work brought prestige to Pococke and he was subsequently made a founder member of the Egyptian Club.

      Cordier, Japonica, col. 449; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 536; Tiele, Bibl. 1096 note. The Dutch scholar Isaac Titsingh (1745-1812) was head of the Dutch trading post at Dejima and spent in total some 44 months in Japan (in the years 1779-1780, 1781-1783, and 1784). He collected material for a monumental work on Japan, but published only several brief essays during his lifetime. The Paris-based publisher Nepveu posthumously issued two volumes of selections from Titsingh's papers, translated into French: Cérémonies usitées en Japon pour les mariages et les funérailles (1819) and Mémoires et anecdotes de la dynastie regnante des Djogouns (1820). The present second edition combines these two works, leaving out some short essays.The first volume consists of essays on Japanese marriage ceremonies, the second is devoted to funeral ceremonies and some other feasts, and includes an account of "dosia", a powdered recreational and medicinal drug, while the final volume consists of a series of anecdotes about the shoguns.In very good condition, with some plates slightly tattered at the edges. The bindings show some light wear.
