        An Accurate Map of the Islands & Channels between China and New Holland.

      London: R. Wilkinson, 1 January, 1794. Engraved map, 265 x 338mm., contemporary handcolouring, a fine copy with the early manuscript numeral "42" in ink to lower right margin. Marvellous map, the companion to Wilkinson's map of the east coast of Australia. This map of South-East Asia is rather usefully designed to show the islands between the Torres Strait in the bottom right and Canton at top right, giving an overview of the waters which were seeing the beginnings of what would become the established China/India to New Holland trade with its famous waterways such as the Straits of Sunda and Malacca, and the Sulu Sea. In fact, as an introduction to this burgeoning trade, the map could scarcely be bettered.The map was originally included in Robert Wilkinson's A General Atlas, being A Collection of Maps of the World (1794).

        Almanach National, Geographique et Portatif: Dedie Aux Patriotes Francais

      Small unpag. French almanac with seven hand-colored maps, some folding, depicting the 89 administrative departments with accompanying table listing the departments, campaigns of the French Revolutionary Wars, the principal routes and navigable rivers, fortifications, and the city and suburbs of Paris, with two hand-colored odographic charts detailing the distances of major towns to the capital and the lengths of the most traveled roads, a Republican agricultural calendar, a table of discounts useful for cashiers and businesspeople, and a list of the major routes in France. Illustrated. Some very minor foxing, some small tears along folds. 8vo. Wrpps. with paper label mounted to front cover. Wear along spine, minor soiling. Paris (Desnos) n.d. (circa 1794). The French Revolutionary, or Republican, Calendar was created during the Revolution, but coincides with the creation of the Republic. An official decree said that all documents from 1792 would be dated Year I of the French Republic, with Year II beginning on January 2, 1793. This calendar was used until 1806, when it was abolished by Napoleon. The Republican year is divided into twelve months of 30 days each, beginning at the autumnal equinox. Each of the months has a new name based on nature and the weather in Paris that time of year, including Vendemiaire (related to the grape harvest, beginning in September), Frimaire (related to frost, beginning in November), Nivose (relating to snow, beginning in December), and Floreal (beginning in April). Each month was then divided into three weeks of ten days each, named simply by the number of the day, including primidi, duodi, and tridi (first, second, and third). Very scarce; as of February 2017, WorldCat does not locate a single holding in North America.

        A collection of 61 broadsides, chiefly announcements of degree defenses.

      This is a great and eye-pleasing assemblage for the study of Guatemalan Colonial and (in few cases) early-Independence Era art, specifically engraving, etching, and typography. Announcements of university degree defenses are a => rare printing genre; for example, none of the 61 items in this collection are held in the John Carter Brown Library. Additionally, only 16 were discovered by Medina. Of the 61 items, 37 are in the smaller folio format (appx. 29.5 x 20 cm; 11.75" x 8.875") and 24 in the larger folio format (42 x 30.5 cm; 16.5" x 12"). => Each has an engraving or etching in the top area: The very attractive images include saints and Madonnas, including three instances of the Virgin of Guadalupe, but also coats of arms and, very interestingly, portraits of living individuals. The typography is always center-justified above a final paragraph or two that is right justified; and the printers have used a variety of ornaments to create interesting borders. There is one case of an image being used twice: once on a small format broadside and also on a large one. The etched text has been eliminated on one of these; and when one looks carefully at the other images it is clear that engraved text has been masked or removed from some of them also -- further evidence of recycling as having been a printshop practice. Remarkably, one of the broadsides is bilingual (Latin & Spanish) and is a publication => not of a university defense but a publication of that Enlightenment development, the social organization "La Sociedad Economica," in this case La Sociedad Economica de Guatemala. It announces that it has been reborn, and will not let the authorities "suffocate" it. Another is a => eulogy for a retired university professor. Among the defense announcements, some give the actual questions/topics that will be asked/defended. The date range of the items is 1794 to 1823 and => the engravers include Juan Jose Rosales de Santa Cruz, Narcisco Rosal, Juan Pedro Larrabe, Garci-Aguirre, Francisco Cabrera, Valladolid, and Jose Casildo Espana. Notably one is by the Mexican engraver Villavicencio.Finally, the printers are the usual admirable suspects: Bracamonte, Beteta, and Arevalo. => It is interesting to see them represented by such UNusual ephemera!

        India Orientalis Christiana continens fundationes ecclesiarum, seriem episcoporum, missiones, schismata, persecutiones, reges, viros illustres [and two other works].

      Rome: Typis Salomonianis, 1794. Three works bound together, quarto, the first main work with folding map, 2 plates and an engraved portrait vignette, with two shorter pamphlets (24 & 26 pp.); an attractive copy in contemporary patterned vellum boards, spine banded, red morocco spine label faded. Three works by Paulinus, including his important India Orientalis Christiana, a study of and introduction to the Carmelite missions in India in the late eighteenth century, in a particularly attractive contemporary binding. The work is illustrated with two plates and a fine map of India, as well as a smaller vignette portrait of Paulinus himself.Paulinus of St Bartholomew (1748-1806), also known as Johann Philipp Werdin or Wesdin, was a missionary and orientalist. A member of the Carmelite Order, in 1774 he was sent to India (Malabar) where he was appointed vicar general of his order. In 1789 he was recalled to Rome in order to report on the mission, and given the task of preparing books for the use of missionaries.One of the first Orientalists to note and work on the close relationship between Indian and European languages, Paulinus was the author of many learned studies on the east, and is best known for having published the first Sanskrit grammar. As an antiquarian who worked from original sources, he was fortunate to have the patronage of Cardinal Stefano Borgia (1731-1804; a good Borgia) whom he served as private secretary and who financed many of his publications. Both men served long periods on the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide, a body preoccupied with exotic languages insofar as they impacted on spreading the christian gospels but also in understanding exotic theologies. In this context the Propaganda Fide was a central recipient of missionary collecting in the field which gave Paulinus exceptional advantages which enabled him to undertake extensive linguistic studies.After Borgia's death his remarkable library and museum were gradually distributed, with the important biblical manuscripts mostly being added to the Vatican libraries after the secular materials had chiefly made their way to the national library of Naples.The two rare pamphlets bound in here are both concerned with Borgia's museum: Scitismo Sviluppato... del Museo Borgiano (Rome, c. 1793) and Lettera... del Museo Borgiano (Rome, same period), both written in Italian (not Latin) and both discussing the Museo Borgiano. Borgia was particularly expert on Coptic relics, but here Paulinus discusses early Brahmanic and other Indian manuscripts in his collection.All of these works are rare, although, as often, the pamphlets are the scarcer. Worldcat lists some 10 copies of the India Orientalis Christiana, 2 copies of the Scitismo, and only 1 of the Lettera.

        The Coast of India from Pulo Timon to Pulo Cambir Comprehending The Malayan Coast; The Gulf of Siam, The Coasts of Tsiampa and Cochinchina, with The Adjacent Islands and Part of the Isle of Borneo

      London: Laurie & Whittle, 1794. unbound. Sea chart. Uncolored copper plate engraving. Image measures 21" x 26.25". This extensive sea chart of Southeast Asia extends from present-day Thailand down to the northern coasts of Sumatra and Borneo. Rhumb lines emanate from the center of the map, spreading out in every direction toward the highly detailed coastlines of the peninsula and its surrounding islands. The names of the states curve in accordance with their landforms, further contributing to the overall diamond-like composition of the map. Appropriately, if only coincidentally, this region was highly profitable for the British Empire in this period, as its dominance in world trade gave it effectual control of the trade between China, Siam, and its holdings in Malaysia and Borneo. Details such as soundings and sandbars demonstrate how well-traveled the area was and add to the map's lovely visual rhythm.<BR><BR>The map appeared in Laurie & Whittle's 1794 "Neptune Orientale." It is in good condition with full margins, some repair to top and left margins. Professionally lined with some off-setting. <BR><BR>Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London-based map and atlas publishers active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Their firm combined Laurie's engraving skills with Whittle's social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates. This map is a beautiful example of their work.

        Drop-head title:] A Song made by Sir Joseph Senhouse, on the 27th of November 1794, being the Birth Day of his Nephew Humphrey Senhouse Junior of Netherhall, when he attained to the Age of Twenty One Years ?

      [?Whitehaven, Ann Dunn, 1794.] - Sole edition, very rare. The suggestion that the printer of this occasional piece was Ann Dunn of Whitehaven is based upon the existence of four four-page poetical pamphlets of apparently the same date, of very similar appearance and with the same or similar watermarks. These appear in ESTC as Chloe in Summer ['Whitehaven?: printed by Ann Dunn?, 1797?']; Paddy in Extasy 'A. Dunn, printer, Whitehaven' [1797?]; A Song made by Sir Joseph Senhouse, on the 27th of November 1794, being the Birth Day of his Nephew Humphrey Senhouse Junior of Netherhall, when he attained to the Age of Twenty One Years ['London? 1794?']; and The Wish ['Whitehaven?: printed by Ann Dunn?, 1795?'].Only one of these has the printer's name and place of printing, and only one gives an author's name, but they point to all four having been written either by Sir Joseph Senhouse or someone in his immediate circle and printed by Ann Dunn in Whitehaven, who was responsible for producing a number of books in the 1790s. 4to (239 × 190 mm), pp. [4], the final leaf blank; unbound.

Contemporary half calf morocco labels, rubbed, board detached. Contents clear and very legible written on thick watermarked paper. The buildings are sub-divided into their respective counties, many pages with only county headings tantalisingly yet to be filled in. The first section - KENT - is 98 pages long, and one is bound to assume the author lived here, perhaps in Rochester. (the entry for Rochester Castle runs to 10 pages). Entries comprise historical records and architectural descriptions. The author leans on earlier antiquarians such as Leland and Camden, sometimes with direct quotes. What makes the work of unusual interest is that many of the sites were clearly visited by the author in the late eighteenth century. One has only to see, for instance the extraordinarily precise measurements for the alleged Dark Age monument, Kit's Coty House (pp 34-35), to observe the author's keenness for detail. Here are a few further examples : 1) Rochester Castle, having been granted to Sir Anthony Welldone in 1610,had its timbers sold by one of his descendants 'to one Grimmet and the stone stairs the ... windows and arches to different masons in London.' But his plan to sell the 'whole of the materials' to a pavier was foiled by the discovery of the extreme hardness of the mortar. An essay 'on the east side near the postern leading to Bully Hill' can still be seen. Thus the castle escaped demolition. 2) At Evesham Abbey, 'the most curious remains' is an elliptical arch 17 ft high. It is divided by three sets of mouldings into 2 ranges of niches with well-carved figures. The outer 2 figures are seated on a kind of throne, perhaps abbots or bishops. But all were decapitated by a 'capricious gentleman,' whose mansion garden was entered via the ruin. 3) At Naworth Castle, in one one of the towers, is Lord Howard's library a small room with a narrow staircase. No books have been added since Eliz I's time. A 3 ft high triptych, six pages long, tells the story of Joseph of Arimathaea ending with a history of the saints and their rights of granting indulgences.This ambitious work was never completed: indeed other volumes were planned and many counties are not even begun. There are substantial entries for Kent, Sussex, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Berkshire, Cumberland, and lesser listings (a few pages long) for many other counties. The fascination with this manuscript is that the author knows many of these sites at first hand. In some cases, the buildings - covering the full range of structures from castles to abbeys to monasteries and even Stonehenge (4 pages) - may be either no longer extant or much reduced since his time, thus making his work potentially an antiquarian's or archaeologist's resource. .

        MANUSCRITO. JUICIO comparativo sobre Proyectos del Camino desde Perote a Veracruz.

      Mexico 1794 - 2 hojas Interesante manuscrito original de finales del siglo XVIII, sobre los proyectos de camino entre la ciudad mexicana de San Miguel de Perote y Veracruz, presentados uno por el Coronel Ingeniero Pedro Ponce y el otro por Coronel Pedro de Aristegui. El Sr. Miguel Costamó se dirige al Virrey, II Conde de Revillagigedo al que expone sus preferencias en relacion a los dos proyectos, inclinándose por el de Pedro Ponce. A esta hoja le acompaña una apaisada donde encontramos las distancias y los costos de las diferentes posibilidades del camino, conforme al Proyecto del Coronel Ponce, haciendo un resumen del mismo. El camino Veracruz-Mexico, via Perote o Cordoba ha sido sin duda uno de los tres más importantes de Nueva España, conocido como el camino de las Ventas por el pasaban viajeros, virreyes, comercio exterior, correo y toda la influencia cultural europea, el trayecto durana 22 dias y el recorrido era de 412 Km. Durante la segunda mitad del siglo XVIII, este camino que llegaba desde Veracruz hasta Mexico, via Perote, tenía otro interés además del comercial, interés estratégico pues existía un conflicto serio entre España e Inglaterra que hizo poner especial atención al Puerto de Veracruz, pues era el más susceptible de ser atacado por la Aramada invencible inglesa debido a la cercanía a la capital del virreinato.Después de diferentes estudios, se determina que Perote es el mejor paraje para fortificar el camino que llevaría al Puerto de Veracruz y que debido al mal estado del camino era necesario realizar modificaciones en el mismo, arreglos y construcciones de puentes que ocasionaran el menor gasto posible. En perfecto estado de conservación, limpio.

        Chart from New York to Timber Island including Nantucket Shoals from the latest Surveys

      printed and sold by John Norman, Boston 1794 - Copper engraved sea chart, on seven sheets, unjoined. Greatest dimensions (if joined): approximately 50 x 76 inches. A few areas with expert facsimile. Rare complete copy of the first edition of Norman's chart of the New England coast line. The American Revolution brought an end to Britain's leading role in the mapping of America. The task now fell to the American publishing industry still in its infancy, but with first-hand access to the new surveys that were documenting the rapid growth of the nation. In particular, there was a need for nautical charts for use by the expanding New England commercial fleets. The first American marine atlas, Mathew Clark's A Complete Set of Charts of the Coast of America, was published in Boston in 1790. Two of Clark's charts had been engraved by John Norman, who was inspired to launch his own enterprise. In January 1790, Norman published a notice in the Boston Gazette stating he was currently engraving charts of all the coast of America on a large scale. These were assembled and published as The American Pilot in Boston in 1791. Norman's Pilot, the second American marine atlas, indeed the second American atlas of any kind, marked an advance over the earlier work of Mathew Clark. The present map is among the most impressive from the atlas. Printed on seven sheets, the map joins to an irregular shape (sometimes described as an inverted T or inverted L shape). As the title suggests, the map depicts the entire coastline, from Manhattan Island in the south west, to Timber Island, Maine. Besides an accurate depiction of the coastline based on Holland's surveys, the map includes shoals and soundings, and with both coastal and inland towns and waterways. As the cartouche states, the map, and indeed the entire atlas, includes an attestation by Osgood Carleton (described as a "Teacher of Navigation and other Branches of the Mathematics"), certifying its accuracy. New editions of Norman's Pilot appeared in 1792 and 1794, and after his death, his son William Norman, brought out editions in 1794, 1798, 1801, and 1803. The present map is Wheat & Brun's second state, i.e. from the 1794 edition preceding John Norman's death, with the inclusion of the right extension sheet showing George's Bank, the inclusion of the northernmost sheet extending the map to Timber Island and with roads added connecting towns north of Boston. Later editions included a number of changes, most notably excluding the George's Bank and northernmost sheets. Despite the seemingly large number of editions, The American Pilot is one of the rarest of all American atlases. Wheat and Brun locate just ten complete copies for the first five editions: 1791 (Huntington, Harvard); 1792 (Library of Congress, Clements); 1794(1) (Library of Congress, John Carter Brown Library, Boston Public Library); 1794(2) (Yale); 1798 (Library of Congress, Boston Public Library). Only one other example of this map has appeared at auction in the last quarter century, being a later 19th century issue without the additional two sheets (Swann Galleries, 5 December 2013, selling for $37,500). Wheat & Brun 157 (state 2); McCorke 791.4; Suarez, Shedding the Veil 60 (1801 edition); Bosse, "The Boston Map Trade of the Eighteenth Century" in Mapping Boston , pp. 49-52.

        Musica Divina. Sive Thesaurus Concentuum Selectissimorum omni Cultui Divino totius anni Juxta ritum Sacntae Ecclesiae Catholicae. ... Annus Primus. Harmonias IV. Vocum Continens. Tomus II: Liber Motettorum. Sectio I, II, III. + Appendix

      530 S. durchgehende Zählung appendix LVI 1 Bl. XXVIII, SS.533 - 580, 1 Bl. Corrigenda. 29 cm, Originalpappband, EB etwas berieben, sonst mit geringfügigen Gebrauchsspuren, sehr guter Zustand. Carl Proske (* 11. Februar 1794 in Gröbnig bei Leobschütz, Oberschlesien 20. Dezember 1861 in Regensburg) war Kirchenmusiker, Arzt und Geistlicher. Nach verschiedenen Tätigkeiten und hohen Auszeichnungen als praktizierender Arzt, verzichtete Proske auf eine glänzende Laufbahn im preußischen Staatsdienst, gab seine Stelle als Kreisphysikus in Pleß auf und entschied sich auf Anregung seines späteren engen Freundes und Bischofs von Regensburg Johann Michael Sailer zu einem Studium der Theologie in Regensburg. 1826 wurde Proske im Regensburger Dom zum Priester geweiht. 1834 bis 1836 unternahm Proske, nachdem er vom Stift studiosa causa beurlaubt worden war, seine erste Reise nach Italien (v.a. Rom und Neapel), mit dem Ziel, Abschriften klassischer Vokalpolyphonieen des 16. Jahrhunderts zu sammeln. Zwar hatte Proske schon vor seiner Reise eine stattliche Bibliothek zusammengetragen, der eifrige Forscher gab sich jedoch damit noch nicht zufrieden und wollte die musikalischen Schätze vor Ort studieren. Es folgten 1837 eine zweite, 1838 eine dritte Reise auf den Spuren alter italienischer Meister, die ihn u.a. nach Bologna, Florenz, Padua und Venedig führten. 1853 bis 1864 erschien Proskes grundlegendes vierbändiges Werk Musica Divina (durchgeführt von Franz Xaver Haberl), in dem Gesänge zu allen liturgischen Bereichen enthalten sind (Band 1: 12 Messen Band 2: Motetten für das ganze Kirchenjahr Band 3: polyphone Vespergesänge Band 4 postum: Gesänge der Karwoche, Litaneien, Te Deum usw.). Proske war eine zentrale Gestalt der Restauration der katholischen Kirchenmusik, legte den Grundstein für die kirchenmusikalische Reformbewegung des Cäcilianismus. Seine Wirkungsstätte, die Alte Kapelle wurde im folgenden Jahrhundert Ausgangspunkt dieser Bewegung. Zu nennen ist hier besonders der Kirchenkomponist Michael Haller. Proske gilt auch als Wegbereiter der Regensburger Domspatzen. Seine Musikbibliothek umfasst mehr als 1.200 Abschriften von Werken Alter Meister des 15. bis 17. Jahrhunderts und ist heute der Regensburger Bischöflichen Zentralbibliothek angegliedert.
