      Two parts in one. Amsterdam: J.H. Schneider, 1760. Two parts in one, 12mo., [iv], iv, [ii], 205, [15]; 51, [1, bl.]pp., title page printed in red and black, a title page engraved vignette, and 24 folding engraved maps and plates, all but one hand-colored (as required). Contemporary cat's paw calf, red edges. Front hinge repaired with tape, lacking front free endpaper, some slight offsetting and browning within, a few slight tears and paper flaws, binding neatly restored along joints and at ends; very good copy. First edition of this truly rare children's introduction to geography and astronomy, many times reprinted and pirated. The maps are "blind" maps, with the outlines of continents, countries etc. only so children learn to find them by reading the text. Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America are covered, but not Australia or the Poles. The second part introduces children to globes and their usage, and principles of cosmography and astronomy. The world map is by Christian Sepp and had first appeared in a 1758 atlas, the plates for which must have been sold to Schneider for this book. OCLC 54151363 cites copies at Yale, Detroit and Amsterdam and there appear to be a further eight copies, none in the US.

        Marifetname [The Book of Knowledge and Skills].

      [Ottoman Empire, ca 1760]. - Folio (209 x 318 mm). 459, (2), 14 (but: 13) ff. of index, numerous errors in Arabic pagination, but complete according to catchwords, numbered throughout by a later owner in pencil from left to right, 1-474 ff. Ottoman Turkish on thin, polished, cream-coloured laid paper. Text is in fine naskh script with black and red ink within a red double-lined border, 31 lines of text within a written area of 232 x 112 mm. Occasional red underlining, sections usually demarcated by a single word of red text on a line with a red border on either side. 11 full-page colour illustrations of scientific diagrams, 8 full-page coloured tables and 5 coloured half-page illustrations, as well as a round, black and red ink diagram on leaf 448v. Contemporary full calf, expertly rebacked with six compartments of raised bands and gilt motifs, gilt red title label, all edges speckled red. A fine 18th century manuscript copy of the famous scholarly encyclopedia, not printed until 1835 (in Bulaq). The "Marifetname", or "Book of Gnosis" is a compilation of astronomical, astrological, mathematical, anatomical, psychological, philosophical as well as mystical religious texts. It is famous for containing the first treatment of post-Copernican astronomy by a Muslim scholar. - Ibrahim Haqqi Erzurumi (1703-80) is considered an outstanding figure of 18th century Ottoman Turkey. Based on an immense knowledge of the Sufi branch of Islam as well as his studies in Western science, he devoted himself to the domains of both religion and science, considering both a means of approaching God. - Occasional smudging of ink; minor offsetting on pages facing illustrations, leaves 7-11 with minor waterstains in the upper corner margins, leaves 12-18 expertly reinforced in the upper margin, with rather severe loss to text in upper half of leaves 14v and 15. Text appears to be lost on 378r (faint traces of text still remain). Leaves 343v-350v have dark pink stain in centre of text toward gutter (no loss), likewise on 443v-463v. Leaves 448-454 have had their margins reinforced. Leaves numbered 449 and 450 must be switched, as well as 453 and 454. Altogether a very appealing copy with the numerous illustrations showing fine detail. Cf. Zenker I, 1709. F. Gülen, "Key Concepts in the Practice of Sufism," p. 106, n. 69. Z.

        Neueste Vorstellung und Beschreibung der, der [sic] Gesellschafft Iesu zugehoerigen Provinz Paraquay mit den angraenzenden Laendern

      Francoforte 1760 - Mappa del Paraguay e delle province istituite dai gesuiti intorno al 1732. Include una legenda per l'identificazione delle posizioni degli insediamenti spagnoli, dei neo-convertiti nativi americani, e degli indigeni non cristiani. La carta, come espressamente indicato nell'iscrizione del margine inferiore, a sinistra, deriva dalla mappa di Giovanni Petroschi (1715- 1766) stampata a Roma intorno al 1732, e che conobbe poi numerose traduzioni ed edizioni. Nel cartiglio sulla sinistra, la dedica a Francisco Retz (1673-1750), che fu Superiore della Compagnia di Gesù. Incisione su rame, finemente colorata a mano, restauri perfettamente eseguiti, visibili al verso, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Map of Paraguay or the provinces settled by the Jesuits around 1732, first issued in Rome by Giovanni Petroschi (1715- 1766). Includes a key for identification of locations of the settlements of Spanish, newly-converted native Americans, and the non-Christian natives. Includes scale. The map is dedicated to Francisco Retz (1673-1750), Superior General of the Society of Jesus Between 1609 and 1780, the Roman Catholic Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) established an autonomous Christian Indian state on the territory of present-day Paraguay, Uruguay, and parts of Argentina and Brazil. After unsuccessful efforts to Christianize the warlike Guaycurú Indians of northeastern Paraguay, the Jesuits concentrated on organizing the Guaraní Indians into a series of reducciones (reductions or townships), in which a kind of communal living was practiced. The system of reductions was an attempt to correct earlier abuses, in which the Paraguayan Indians were transformed into virtual slaves who were compelled to work for the Spanish settlers.

        A Confession of Faith Owned and Consented to by the Elders and Messengers of the Churches in the Colony in Connecticut in New-England, Assembled, by Delegation at Say Brook September 9th 1708.

      New London: Timothy Green, 1760. Small 8vo, contemporary tooled sheep, [1], 118 pp. Binding very worn, and spine is chipped and torn a bit, rear joint cracked, early owner's signatures and notes on endpapers, some foxing, aged and browned throughout. This work is a second edition of a title that was originally published in 1710 by Thomas Short. A third edition was published in 1810, a hundred years after the first, which was followed by one in 1831. The Saybrook Synod, which took place in 1708, produced one of the most important religious documents of that period. It produced a 15 point statement, which included a provision for an association of churches that could exercise some control over local congregations. It also appears to have developed regional ministerial associations that could review ministerial candidates. colonialwarsct website. Evans 8733. Sabin 77391.

        L'Entrée du Port de Marseille

      1760 - Acquaforte e bulino, datata e firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, alcuni restauri perfettamente eseguiti, tracce di colla la verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. La tavola deriva da uno dei celebri dipinti di Joseph Vernet, ed è incisa a 4 mani dal Cochin e da Jacques Philippe Le Bas. È grazie al patrocinio di M. de Martigny, Direttore degli Belli Arti e fratello di Madame de Pompadour, che aveva a quel tempo tutte il favore di Luigi XV, che Vernet ha ottenuto del Re un ordine per 24 dipinti dove poteva dare tutta la misura del suo talento: la rapprezentanza dei porti della Francia. La moda di grandi composizioni rappresentando i marine è cominciata. Nel 1753, l'artista dipinge due Vedute del porto di Marsiglia che gli valgono l'anno successivo l'ammissione all'Accademia Reale di Parigi. Terminò il suo lavoro, dopo ben 12 anni di viaggio per le città francesi, nel 1765. Etching with engravings, signed and dated at lower center. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, some expert repairs at the back, otherwise in good condition. This plate is engraved by Cochin & Jacques Philippe Le Bas, after a painting by Joseph Vernet. Vernet was commissioned by Louis XV in 1753 to paint fifteen views of the main ports of France, and given the exceptional title of "peintre des marines de sa majesté". He spent twelve years travelling around the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Channel coasts with his family and servants in tow. The country was at war with England at the time, and Louis specifically requested that the artist show off the economic activities and maritime strength of France, which Vernet did to much acclaim. The majority of the paintings are in the Musée de la Marine in Paris. Arlaud 246; IFF 312.II. Dimensioni 750 540mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Dextera non semper, que pia prosit, erit"; e subito sotto "Mil peligros trae el guego, Tu cauto debes estar; Que una Mano piedosa No sempre puedes hallar"; infine nell'angolo in basso a sinistra: "Dominicus Majotto Pinxit". Alcune fioriture, restauro alla piega centrale, ma buon esemplare. Incisione che fa parte della serie "Capricci fiamminghi". Probabile secondo stato della stampa con l'aggiunta della traduzione spagnola, a testimonianza della vastità del mercato cui era rivolta. Nel volume dal titolo "Giovanni Volpato 1735-1803" a cura di Giorgio Marini si afferma in proposito: "La serie di incisioni, tratte da dipinti di Domenico Maggiotto, documenta la prima attività del Volpato svolta presso la Calcografia Remondini ... Le stampe favorirono una grande diffusione alle tele di Maggiotto, e ne testimoniano il favore riscontrato presso una vasta fascia del mercato collezionistico del tempo."

Kopergravure vervaardigd door Jeremias Wolff naar een ontwerp van Friedrich Bernhard Werner uitgegeven door Johann Friederich Probst rond 1760, later met de hand gekleurd. afm (prent) 35 x 102 cm, met onder het stadsprofiel een legenda met landmarks.Aan het einde van de zeventiende eeuw verloor de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden langzamerhand haar rol als economische supermogendheid aan Engeland. In die tijd werden maar weinig Nederlandse stadsgezichten gemaakt. Het waren de buitenlandse uitgeverijen die toen stad (en provincie) vastlegden. Het Beierse Augsburg was met een aantal zeer actieve uitgeverijen ??Europas Bilderfabrik?. De belangrijkste uitgeverij aldaar was die van Jeremias Wolff (1663-1774) wiens zaak werd overgenomen door zijn schoonzoon Johann Balthasar Probst, vervolgens overging in de handen van Georg Bathasar Probst en later weer in handen kwam van diens zonen Georg Balthasar Probst II en Johann Friedrich Probst. Tot 1802 blijft het bedrijf in handen van de familie Probst. De firma modelleerde ook Nederlandse stadsgezichten naar Beiers voorbeeld, waarin de kerktorens uivormige bekroningen kregen.Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) had een kleurrijke loopbaan voordat hij als freelance kunstenaar voor de uitgeverijen van Augsburg ging werken. Zo was hij ondermeer soldaat, 'Wunderdoktor', vertaler van opera?s en landmeter. Hij reisde veel door Polen, Pruisen, Pommern, Duitsland, Itali?, Frankrijk en Nederland om ontwerpen te maken voor zijn prenten van steden, kerken, paleizen en kastelen.prijs: ?3.850,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).
