Buchbeschreibung: Amsterdam, Jacob Lindenberg 1702/1703, 1702. 2 works in 1 binding, Bible: (frontispiece, 2, portrait, 15) 278, 112, 70, (frontispiece with explanation) 132 folia. De Hooghe: (frontispiece with explanation, 1) 69 folia. Contemporary blind-stamped Leather with 6 raised bands, 8 corner-pieces and 2 clasps, Folio H. 47,5 x L. 32 x W. 12 cm. (Dutch Luther Bible containing the Old and New Testament and the Apocrypha. This edition is translated from the German by Nicolaes Biestkens and is revised by Adolf Visscher. Adolf Visscher revised the Mennonite translation of Biestkens and his translation became the standard Bible for the Dutch Lutherans. The Bible is interleaved with the work of Romeyn de Hooghe which contains a frontispiece with explanation, a titlepage, 5 maps and 69 folia, each with 2 engravings and marginal notes. This set of Bible illustrations was bound in a number of different translations and editions of the Bible during this period. The total work contains 3 frontispieces, a portrait, 5 maps and 138 engravings with ca. 800 illustrations on them. All of the frontispieces, maps, engravings, vignettes and capital letters are beautifully handcoloured and heightened with gold by the uncrowned master of the late 17th century Dutch colourists, Dirk Jansz. van Santen. Van Santen was an unsurpassed artist and made beautiful pieces of art out of numerous book illustrations. Typical for his colouring is the abundant use of gold and the use of vivid colours for both the borders and the engravings and maps itself. On the 11th of February 1982, prof. H. de la Fontaine Verwey, who thoroughly explored Van Santen’s oeuvre, inspected this Bible, and certified that the colouring is undoubtedly by the hand of Van Santen. The work has not been for sale before. For generations it has been the property of a private family in Haarlem and the last 30 years it has been in the hands of a private collector. An exceptionally beautiful copy. What makes it even more exclusive is the fact that the engravings by De Hooghe, although very appreciated, were almost never coloured. This was due to the numerous details and the almost impressionistic design of his engravings which made it almost impossible for the colourists to colour the prints without creating chaos. However, Van Santen was able to give even the prints by De Hooghe extra quality and the splendid colouring proves his unmistakable expertise.) 2 werken in 1 band, Bijbel: (titelprent, 2, portret, 15) 278, 112, 70, (titelprent met verklaring) 132 folia. De Hooghe: (titelprent met verklaring, 1) 69 folia. Origineel Leer met ribben, stempels, 8 hoekstukken en 2 sloten, Folio H. 47,5 x B. 32 x D. 12 cm. (Nederlandse Lutherbijbel bevattende het Oude en Nieuwe Testament en de Apocriefen. Deze uitgave is door Nicolaes Biestkens uit het Duits vertaald en werd bewerkt door Adolf Visscher. Adolf Visscher herzag de Doperse vertaling van Biestkens en zijn vertaling werd de standaard Bijbel voor de Nederlandse Luthersen. De Bijbel is doorschoten met het werk van Romeyn de Hooghe dat bestaat uit een titelprent met verklaring, een titelpagina, 5 kaarten en 69 folia met op elk 2 gravures met bijschrift. Deze set van bijbelillustraties werd in een verschillend aantal van vertalingen en edities van de Bijbel gebonden rond deze periode. Met in totaal 3 titelprenten, een portret, 5 kaarten en 138 gravures met daarop ca. 800 afbeeldingen. Al de titelpagina's, kaarten, gravures, vignetten en kapitalen zijn fraai handgekleurd en opgehoogd met goud door de ongekroonde meester van de laat 17e eeuwse Nederlandse kleurders of 'afsetters' Dirk Jansz. van Santen. Van Santen was een weergaloos artiest en maakte van talloze prenten en boekillustraties prachtige kunststukken. Kenmerkend voor zijn kleuring is de rijkelijke toepassing van goudverf en het gebruik van levendige kleuren voor zowel de randen als de gravures en kaarten zelf. Op 11 februari 1982 heeft prof. H. de la Fontaine Verwey, die het werk van Van Santen uitgebreid heeft bestudeerd, deze Bijbel geinspe. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 201542

De Wit was born in Gouda in 1630 became one of the "most famous engravers of maps of the second half of the 17th-century" (Koeman), his earliest maps issued in 1654. In addition to being geographically correct, de Wit’s maps are full of detail and are often decorated with elaborate cartouches. "Frederick de Wit, who was the sole proprietor of the firm, was not just a conveyor of maps but also an innovator in the field of commercial cartography. His maps and in particular his atlas production changed the form in which atlases were consumed in the second half of the seventeenth century. de Wit produced and successfully marketed the first concise reference atlas. de Wit’s cartographic production is one of the key factors that joined the early Netherlands period in cartography ca 1550 to ca. 1675, to the latter years of Dutch commercial cartography, and European atlas production in the eighteenth century" (George Carhart).

"Indiae Orientalis" depicts the northern coastline of Australia. From the distinguished library of the Admiralty of Rotterdam, also known as the Admiralty de Maze, the oldest of the five influential Admiralties of the Dutch Republic at the height of Dutch maritime supremacy. Established in 1574 during the Dutch revolt after the Capture of Brielle) William I of Orange's supporters decided to pool their naval resources at Rotterdam, in the Prinsenhof the former Saint Agnathaklooster, at Botersloot. Although the building was finally demolished in 1884 the arms of the Admiralty with the crossed anchors and an abbreviation of its motto Pugno Pro Patria ("I fight for the fatherland") on the remains of the original gate can be seen in the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The structure of the five Admiralties (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Firesland, West-Friesland and Zeeland) was eventually determined and defined in 1597 by the States-General of the Netherlands. Each Admiralty had branches for equipping warships, protecting overseas trade and traffic on the sea and rivers, collecting taxes, and jurisdiction over loot and price setting. The admiralties were dissolved in 1795 with the rise of the Batavian Republic.

Buchbeschreibung: Amsterdam: F. de Wit, 1660-1666., 1666. 2 works in one volume, folio (20 2/8 x 12 inches). Engraved title-page to "Nieut Kaert-Boeck" (using that of Jacob van Campen's "Afbeelding van't Stadt Huys an Amsterdm" [1661] with de Wit' s present title on an engraved overslip, together 53 double-page engraved mapsheets, all except one hand-colored in outline the cartouches and other embellishments fully hand-colored (first few maps with repaired splits at lower fold), manuscript contents in a contemporary hand, 7 leaves of descriptive text. Contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt in compartments (binding expertly repaired at spine and joints by James Brockman). Provenance: Near contemporary ownership inscription and description of contents of Baron Georg Guldenstiern (1632 -1686), State councillor to Queen Christina of Sweden (1626 - 1689) (ruled 1632-1654), chamberlain to King Charles X Gustavus of Sweden (1622 - 1660) (ruled 1654 - 1660), Chancelor of the Exchequer and of the Admiralty and governor of Stockholm 1678-1682 under King Charles XI (1655 - 1697), (ruled 1660-1697), governor of the provinces of Kronoberg and Uppland from 1657 and 1664 respectively; Christopher Henry Beaumont Pease, Lord Wardington (1924-2005), Library of Important Atlases and Geographies, Sotheby’s, 10th October 2006, lot 359. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE EXAMPLE of an early small de Wit atlas. Purchased by Baron Georg Guldenstiern, explaining the addition of the regional maps of Uppland and Götaland, which are not normally found in De Wit's small atlas. In two parts: a general world atlas and a regional atlas of the seventeen Dutch provinces. It contains a number of important maps found only in de Wit's early small atlases. The four continental maps are examples of de Wit's first continental maps that he replaced with more modern maps by 1671. The map of Hungary "NOVISSIMA ET EMENDATA DELINEATIO HUNGARIÆ" was originally published by Joannes Meyssens,(Schilder) but with de Wit's imprint it is known of in only one other de Wit atlas held by the map collection of the Amsterdam University Library. Like the map of Hungary the map of Germania by Claes Jansz. Visscher found in this atlas is also replaced by 1671. The World map is de Wit's second, and it is in an earlier state than the one given by Shirley (451), as the page number "1" is in manuscript and is not yet engraved. This is the only copy of this map known without the engraved page number. The atlas can be dated to between 1666 and 1671. Furthermore it can be dated to shortly after 1668, due to the contents of the atlas and several indicators found on the maps within the atlas. The first part of the general atlas has no title page or printed index. This indicates an early atlas as de Wit did not begin to use the familiar allegorical title page with Atlas holding up the heavens until shortly before 1671. The lack of a printed index also indicates a pre 1671 date as the printed indexes that are found in most of his atlases did not appear until ca.1671. The date of after 1666, for the earliest possible date for this atlas, is known as the atlas contains a map of Brabant: "Tabula Ducatus BRABANTIÆ ." dated 1666. Further this portion of the atlas also has the second state of de Wit's title page for his atlas of the seventeen provinces. The title page calls for twenty maps and it has a printed index of twenty maps on the verso. Both the title page and the index help in dating the atlas. De Wit acquired the plate for this title page in 1666 along with a number of plates of Amsterdam from Dancker Danckerts (Shirley 451 and 499). De Wit subsequently had a new title text for his provincial atlas printed that he then pasted over the original Danckerts text on this title page. There are three renditions of the new title block, the first indicating only fourteen maps, the second indicating twenty and the third twenty-five maps. We know that the fourteen map provincial atlas was first advertised by de Wit on the 14th of June 1667, in the "Oprechte Haerlemse Coura. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 12-4-7

Buchbeschreibung: Amsterdam: chez Regner & Josue Ottens, [ca 1720]., 1720. Folio (21 x 13 inches). Title-page printed in red and black with an engraved vignette by F. Ottens. 48 fine double-page engraved maps and 5 charts (including fortification plate) with partial original hand-colour (lacking engraved frontispiece, a few small tears, small wormhole at lower centre of last 3 maps). 18th-century English diced half russia over marbled paper boards, the spine in seven compartments with six raised bands, gilt-lettered in the second, the others decorated in gilt with modern Pease family crests gilt (hinges broken). Provenance: 18th-century ownership inscription of George Champagne (?Rector of Twickenham and Canon of Windsor, ca 1755-1808) at the head of the title-page and manuscript index on verso of the final map; Lord Wardington (1924-2005), Library of Important Atlases and Geographies, his sale Sothebys' 10th October 2006, lot 362. Reiner and Josua Ottens assembled collections of maps in atlas form from the 1720s onwards until about 1750. The maps in this atlas are dated between 1704 and 1713. Although no two atlases assumed to have assembled by the Ottens brothers are the same, many of the extant examples contain a standard engraved title-page (not found in the present copy) with their imprint. Few maps collected and sold by the Ottens firm actually bear an Ottens imprint: many were taken from the stocks of the leading publishers of the day in Amsterdam or Paris, no doubt as a result of the influence which they were able to exert on their fellow members in the Amsterdam Compagnie van Boekverkopers or Booksellers Guild, of which both Reiner and Josua were at some time Governors. This volume includes maps after Jaillot, de Wit, F. & L. Valk, G. Delisle, de Leth, de Fer, Caspar Specht, Nicolaes Visscher and others.

Buchbeschreibung: Amsterdam Leiden -1724, 1670. Large Folio. (55 x 33 cm). Composite atlas comprising 23 engraved mapsheets incorporating two large multi-sheet wall-maps and 6 double-page maps (4 with fine original hand-colour with a separate letterpress title and key pasted to bottom), title leaves of the large map somewhat browned, upper joint weak, blind tooled vellum with rules and ornamental centre piece with arabesques, gilt, small split at headband, spine in 10 compartments with raised bands, gilt; spine splitting. A fine composite atlas of maps and views of the city of Leiden, with Hagen's famous wall-maps, both large and small and both complete. It incorporates Leiden's administrative structure in beautiful, strong contemporary hand-colour. The large wall-map, issued in 1670, is engraved on 10 double-page and 4 full-page mapsheets, while the small wall-map, issued five years later, is printed on 3 double-page mapsheets. Both maps include lovely engraved views of the city, especially the 9 larger views of the 1670 map. Very interestingly, the atlas, compiled in the early 18th century, includes five separate versions of the small map: one complete with the title and the views, and four focusing only on the plan of the city, all four coloured by hand to make visible various aspects of the city. With some paper slips and other letterpress titles pasted on the engraved sheets, these four versions show: the extensions of the town, the Fire Brigade quarters, the division of the town in the eight companies of the citizen's militia and the town quarters. The atlas gives therefore a unique insight in the organisation of the city at the turn of the century. The volume also includes Reeds' 1717 mapping of the siege of Leyden in 1573-74, as well as van der Aa's issue of a map of part of Holland originally due to Visscher. The detailed content of the atlas is available on request. Born in Bremen ca. 1635, Christiaan van der Hagen worked as an engraver in Amsterdam from ca.1660 until his death in 1688.

Buchbeschreibung: Hardcover. Buchzustand: Very Good. An attractive set of eleven hand-coloured copperplate engravings in passe-partouts in attractive wooden frames (each 35.5 x 30.5 including, and 20 x 15.5 cm without the frame). First edition. Engraved and published by Adriaen Collaert, [Antwerp, c. 1598]. Ten landscapes with depictions of fish and one decorative title page from Adriaen Collaert¿s series of prints Piscium vivae icones. One of the great commercial successes of this well-known Flemish engraver, who succeeded in reputation even his teacher and father in law Philip Galle. The entire series consisted of 26 engravings including a title-page, which were sometimes sold as a set and sometimes separately. Gilt-heightened copies with original colour such as these are very rare. Although some coloured copies are known, unlike this one those tend to be heightened in Arabic gum and coloured using cheap pigments. Generally these are later states of the engravings. Our engravings are from the first state and first edition of the set, as is clear from the inscription on the title page, which reads ¿in aes incisae et editae ab Adriano Collardo¿ (engraved in copper and published by Adriaan Collaert). A similar leaf with a title page on birds Avium Vivae Icones, in aes incise & editae ab Adriano Collardo, is present in the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Joyce Zelen from the catalogue department confirmed the presence of such gilt-heightened accents in this engraving (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, object RP-P-1997-86). The first edition was the only one which was engraved and published by Collaert himself. The second edition was produced, and the plates reworked, by Collaert¿s brother in law Theodoor Galle, who added his name to the title page and numbered the up to then unnumbered copper plates. The third and last edition was produced by Collaert¿s sons Jan and Carel. The first editions of Collaerts work are extremely scarce and far superior to others. Collaert catered to the demands of the popular culture of his time and his prints were highly sought after. Copies were produced in Paris by Peter Firens, in Utrecht by Crispijn de Passe, in Venice by Justus Sadeler and in Amsterdam by Nicolaes Visscher. Rare original colouring of copper engravings, heightening in gilt. Fish, shells, crustaceans, and turtles are depicted in fictitious, romantic, landscapes inspired by Pieter Brueghel the Elder. The landscapes appear to present an overview of the role aquatic species played in the economy of the Low Countries, featuring fishermen¿s boats, fish being caught, fish markets, fish being salted and placed in barrels, and limekilns. Although some marine species are depicted, the engravings show mostly freshwater species. A number of fish are not anatomically correct, which in some cases may be meant to be entertaining and in some cases may be a simple mistake. Overall though, the depictions are true to life and the physical characteristics needed to determine the species are clearly depicted. The study of nature received much attention in the sixteenth century, not only because of practical motives such as the improvement of medicine and agriculture but also because of religious motives, in the sense that to study nature was to study creation and therefore the creator. This led to a stream of publications on all types of animals and also found it¿s way into popular culture which meant publishers started producing sets of animal depictions such as these. Although it is often assumed that in such depictions the scientific accuracy of the depictions was less important, these engravings feature depictions copied from renowned naturalists as well as images which appear to be original and which were later reproduced in scientific publiciations. The majority of the depicted species were copied from the works of contemporaries including famous naturalists such as Pierre Belon, Hipolito Salviani, Guillaume Rondelet, and Conrad Gessner. Others are either original or were copied after an. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 205028

Buchbeschreibung: Petrus Schenck ca. 1700, Amsterdam, 1700. First Edition. Folio (530 x 320 mm). Bound in contemporary marbled boards (sympathetically repaired), corners worn and spine partially defective. COMPLETE with engraved title-page and 26 double-page maps, all colored by a contemporary hand, plus the engraved Index leaf ("Atlas Minor") bound in at end. Soiling throughout, some corners of maps worn, unobtrusive stablizing repairs, childish penciled scribble on verso of one map, small burn hole in lower cover extending through Index leaf and final three maps (not objectionable). A well used but honest copy in a contemporary binding, with original hand-colouring throughout, and absolutely complete. Complete, hand-coloured copy of the First Edition of the first Atlas published by Petrus Schenk the Elder (1660-1718/9), the important and prolific Amsterdam map-maker. The maps are by various authorities: Nic. Visscher, Danckerts, De Wit, Van Keulen, Janssonius, Ottens, Hondius, Valk, and Peter Schenk himself. The Sanson maps are the first ones that Schenk published. The fine frontispiece was designed by G. de Lairesse and engraved by Jac. Baptist after a drawing by Phil. Tideman. It depicts Neptune, a woman representing Europe who gestures towards a massive globe, at the base of which two putti engage in cartography, in the foreground are two lions, and in the background the massive figure of Atlas holding the world. Some of the maps have elaborate figures by none other than Romeyn de Hooghe. While the great World map, and the map of North and South America are justly celebrated, and frequently reproduced, of particular interest to us is the map of "Belgii Pars Septentrionalis communi nomine Vulgo Hollandia" which has been overlooked by virtually all authorities: at the top there is an inset map of the East Coast of the United States, in which are specifically named "Niew Neederland," "Nova Anglia," "Lang Eylant," "Niew Iarsey," "Niew Jorck," "Pennsylvania," and "Virginia." There is also a charming view of New York City taken from the Battery.Our copy collates exactly as per Koeman, and - more importantly - with the engraved list of maps bound in at the end, namely: 26 maps + the title page (see below); Koeman describes this edition as the first, noting that Schenk then begin issuing composite volumes under the same title, containing reimpressions of the present maps, plus some "new" maps, plus maps from other atlases. By definition, the number of maps in these later volumes varied from copy to copy. It is noteworthy the restrikes of the present maps are characterized by significantly inferior impressions, as we would expect considering that some of the plates had been in continuous use for 10-15 years. CONTENTS: 1. Titulus (erased ink inscription on back of Europa and chest of Atlas; lion's eyes dotted with pencil; one putti outlined in black ink). 2. Nova orbis Tabula.3.

Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium. Pugnae Bestiarorum: &: STRADANUS, J. (JAN

Buchbeschreibung: (Londen c. 1817). Oblong 4to (255 x 360mm). With fine hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 102 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates. (Together with:) STRADADUS, J. Vermis Sericus. (London c. 1817). 4to. (255 x 360mm). With fine hand-coloured frontispiece and 5 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary green half morocco, richly gilt ornamented spine. This late issue of which only a small number were made is probably the most beautifully coloured issue of one of the most attractive huntingbooks ever published. The first edition was published 1578 by P. Galle in Antwerp. "Stradanus, or as he was originally named Jan van der Straat (1523-1605), was born in Bruges, but did most of his work in Italy. He was principally a designer of cartoons for tapestries, and there are very few of his pictures in existence. From 1553-1571 he was employed by the Duke Cosimo de' Medici in Florence, who commissioned him to make a number of designs for tapestries, representing fowling, fishing and hunting scenes, for the adornment of twenty rooms in the Palace of Reggio-a-Cajano. The present set of 'Venationes' was engraved from these beautiful and original compositions" (Schwerdt II, p. 228). The fine plates were engraved by I. Collaert, Cornelius Galle and others. "After pl. 102 is included 'Vermis Sericus', a series including an engraved frontispiece containing 4 vignettes illustrating the development of the silkworm from the month of May to August, and 5 other plates"(Schwerdt). The colouring of this copy is outstanding. On the verso of a few plates small paper restoration at the lower margin. A fine copy. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 9436

Britannia: or, A geographical description of the: BLOME, Richard.

Buchbeschreibung: Printed by Tho. Roycroft for the undertaker Richard Blome London, 1673. First edition. Folio (36.5 x 24.5 cm), [14], 464, pp., bound without final leaf ("Benefactors to this work ."), 24 pages (on 13 leaves) of coats-of-arms (22 in contemporary hand-colour), 1 leaf in black-and-white supplied from a shorter copy, last leaf frayed; large folding general map, 45 folding county maps (21 hand-coloured, 1 duplicate (Isle of Wight), North Riding with short split along plate mark and slight fraying to margins, single-sheeet map of London, 5 large folding maps (Wales 2 plus 1 duplicate, Scotland, Ireland); modern calf gilt antique. A beautiful copy of one of the most famous cartographic works of the 17th century. Richard Blome (1641-1705) was one of the most active publishers of illustrated books in post-Restoration London. His cartography flourished in the second half of the 17th century, from about 1670 to 1705. He produced a great amount of maps, all of which were attractive and quaintly designed. He published two series of English county maps. The large series appeared in Blome's "Britannia, or a Geographical Description of the Kingdomes of England, Scotland and Ireland", with each map measuring approximately 300 x 250mm. Published in 1673, the work was based on the latest editions of mapmaker John Speed's "Maps" and William Camden's "Britannia". It was followed in 1681 by an issue of smaller maps (approximately 240 x 180mm) entitled "Speed's Maps Epitomiz'd". The "Britannia" was originally conceived as the third volume of an "English atlas" which was to deal with the whole world. It includes more than 50 beautiful maps, some of them in colour. The volume deals with England county by county, as well as Wales, Scotland , various islands (Orkneys, Jersey, Guernsey, Isles Of Man & Wight) and the British colonies of the time. Along with the maps are precise geographical descriptions of every region, including local topography, history, folklore, nobility and settlements. Blome financed the atlas by selling subscriptions and was the first to exploit the opportunities of subscriptions on a large scale, relying on them to finance all his major publications. For the subscription fee, the subscriber would not only receive a volume of the work but his arms would also could be engraved on the map of his choice and, in the "Britannia", he would receive honourable mention within the text. According to the proposal, a subscriber to the Britannia was charged 20s., 10s. in advance, this including the engraving of the arms, 10s. on delivery, and 5s. for a mention in subsequent counties, as appropriate. Blome tried to get new material by submitting a request for information about the country from people with local knowledge, to correct and update existing printed authorities, most particularly Camden's "Britannia", the most extensive description of the British Isles available at the time. Most of Blome's work was engraved by Wenceslaus Hollar, Richard Palmer, and Francis Lamb, and embellished with dedications to county dignitaries which were added or omitted in later editions. Blome also issued a world atlas, the Geographical Description of the Four Parts of the World, in 1670, which was re-issued as the Cosmography and Geography, in 1682 and 1693. The maps from this atlas were Anglicized copies of Nicolas Sanson's work. Blome also issued a number of Bible maps, usually after Visscher. Chubb XCIX; Skelton 90; Wing B3207.

Buchbeschreibung: Amsterdam: Gedruckt by Rieuwert Dircksz van Baardt, 1648. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Fine. No Jacket. "The Visscher Bible." Dutch Lutheran Bible with Maps. Folio. Size of binding: 9 ½ in. x 16 in; size of pages: 9 in. x 14 ¾ in. [18], 278, 112, 70, 132 leaves. With engraved pictorial title page, indices, engraved tail piece with the 1648 date. Frontispiece is an engraving of Martin Luther; also an engraving of Adolphus Visscher is mounted to the reverse of the title page. Contemporary full leather binding over oak boards. Blind-stamped with designs. Corners and clasp-holders in thick brass. Seven hand-colored, double-paged maps, one of which is the Stellatum Planisphaerium (Planisphere)by Ludovico (Louis) Vlasblom; this map of the solar system is the original state (Later states included the name Johannes van Keulen). The other six (maps or views of cities) are by members of the Visscher family, with the engravings done by various artists. (The Visscher maps are: [1] Orbis terrarum tabula recens emendada (The World) [2] Die gelegentheyt van 't paradys ende 't landt Canaan, mitsgaders de eerst bewoonde landen per patriarchen. (Paradise) [3] Perigrinatie oste veertichiarige reyse der kinderen Israëls. (The Perigrinations) [4] De heylige en wytvermaerde stad Ierusalem eerst genaemt Salem. (Jerusalem) [5] Hey beloofde landt Canaan door wandelt van onsen Salichmaecker Iesu Christo, nessens syne apostelen. (The Promised Land Canaan) [6] Geographische beschryvinghe van de wandeling der apostelen ende de reysen Pauli. (The Travels of St. Paul). Some details of these maps are fascinating: e.g., on the world map, the northwest coast of North America is greatly exaggerated, and California is shown as a peninsula. The Visscher maps and the Planisphere are all delicately and contemporaraneously hand-colored, with some details highlighted in gold. Woodcut tailpieces; large and small decorative and initials. Printed title pages for the Prophets and New Testament. Bookseller's catalog entry pasted to inner front cover. Birth notation in ink on front paste-down with a date in 1712. Spine and spine ends show some typical wear. The Planisphere shows a small split to the center of the lower edge where it is attached. This is the famous Bible which became standard for Dutch Lutherans. Very few existing copies still have the hand-colored maps. Some light damp staining to the upper margins of some pages, not affecting the maps. Dutch text. Weight: 11 ½ lbs. Buchnummer des Verkäufers L-572

Buchbeschreibung: ?Amsterdam: Hendrik de Leth, 1725., 1725. STOOPENDAEL, Hermanus, and others. Views of Amsterdam. ?Amsterdam: Hendrik de Leth, 1725. Oblong 4to., (8 1/8 x 10 4/8 inches). One engraved city plan and 46 exceptionally fine engraved views of Amsterdam by Daniel and Herman Stoopendael (11), Jan Smit (12), P. van Buysen (1), and others. Contemporary vinegar marbled paper boards (minor repairs to the extremities). Provenance: with a contemporary large engraved publisher's device on the front paste-down: "Labore et Perseverantia"; 20th-century ink stamp in Russian on the front free endpaper. A fine and very early collection of engraved views of Amsterdam. The superb city plan of Amsterdam is in the earliest state by D'Ailly, see 268 in his Plattengronden, and is recorded as being issued, as here, in an untitled suite of plates, published by de Leth in 1725. A subsequent issue was published in 1772 as "Le Guide d'Amsterdam", but included only 21 of the plates in this collection. The views are of the ports of Haarlem, Leyden, Utrecht, Weseyer, Muiderpoort, the sluice gates in the Amstel, the Amstel frozen over in winter, and many other scenes along the Amstel, a wintry scene in Utrecht, comprehensive views of the Stadthuys, the Stock Exchange, the churches and synagogues and other major landmark buildings in and around Amsterdam. The artists of the views include: Daniel (1672-1726) and his brother Hermanus Stoopendael, sons of Bastiaen Stoopendael (1637-1726) who worked on the famous Dutch Keur bible from 1702, and were associated with the Visscher publishing house; Jan Smith (probably the elder, ca 1663/64 - 1726) and Pieter van Buysen (active 1710-1713). Hendrick de Leth, the supposed publisher of this album, also began his cartographic career working for the foremost family printing company in 17th and 18th-century Amsterdam, the Visscher firm. The family of Visscher was one of the most distinguished of all 17th-century cartographic firms, and a major player in the era now considered the golden age of Dutch mapmaking. In the late 1600's, a period of great geographical discovery, Amsterdam became an international center of the arts and of cartography, with engravers and printers produced magnificent maps and charts of every kind. The fields of artistic production and map-making were arguably more seamlessly united during this era than any period before or since, as the strong competition among publishers meant that maps not only had to be scrupulously accurate, but also visually appealing. In this milieu, a number of venerable firms, including those established by Blaeu, Jansson, Hondius, as well as Visscher, competed for the ever-expanding market for maps and atlases. The firm founded by Nicholas Visscher set standards for exceptional quality that few others were able to equal, and Hendrick de Leth, who eventually rose to assume control of the Visscher publishing house in the 18th century, maintained the company's standards for excellence during a period when Amsterdam's cartographic preeminence was just beginning to be challenged by the French school of scientific cartography. Not in Nijhoff & Van Hattum (cf 121, Le Guide d'Amsterdam, 1722, with 22 plates) or elsewhere; cf. Hollstein XXVIII, Daniel Stoopendael 8,10,12-13 (recording the earlier states of 4 of the plates).

Buchbeschreibung: Folio (400 x 255 mm). Mit Kupfertitel, nach Johann Jakob Arhardt gestochen von Peter Aubry, 6 doppelblattgrossen Karten (davon eine Weltkarte 'Orbis terrrarum typus de integro in plurimis') und 16 Kupfertafeln von Johann Carl Joseph Störchlin. Typographischer Titel in Rot und Schwarz. [20] Bl. (inkl. Kupfertitel), 48 S., [2] Bl. (Biblischer Kalender von Andreas Hyperius), 680 S., Zwischentitel (Die Propheten), 320, 104 S. (Apokryphen), 422 S. (Neues Testament), 1 Bl. (Bericht an den Buchbinder). Dunkelbrauner Lederband d. Z. über Holzdeckeln (420 x 280 mm), Rücken über 6 erhabenen Bünden, Deckel mit getriebenen Messingbeschlägen (Mittelstück und je vier Eckbeschläge), mit 2 intakten Messingschliessen, Doubluren aus violettem Brokatpapier, ziselierter Goldschnitt (Rückenkopf und -fuss beschädigt). Basel, Emanuel und Johann Rudolf Thurneysen, 1729. Die Basler 'Tossanus-Bibel' in einem schönen Exemplar. Sie zählt zu den aufwändigst gedruckten Büchern des Thurneysen Verlags. Nach dem Ende des Dreissigjährigen Kriegs proflierte sich Basel - zusammen mit Strassburg, Frankfurt am Main und Nürnberg - als Zentrum des Bibeldrucks. Bis ins 18. Jahrhundert verliessen mehrere gewichtige Bibel-Editionen die Basler Druckerpressen. Die von den Gebrüdern Emanuel und Rudolf Thurneysen verantwortete Tossanus-Bibel folgt in ihrer Textredaktion überraschenderweise nicht der neun Jahre zuvor im selben Verlag von den beiden einheimischen Pfarrern Friedrich Battier und Theodor Gernler edierten Version der Luther-Bibel (die sogenannte 'Thurneysen-Bibel'), sondern vielmehr der von dem Heidelberger Kontroversaltheologen Paul Toussain [latinisiert Paulus Tossanus (1572-1634)] veröffentlichten Bearbeitung. Die Glossen und Auslegungen Toussains gehen auf dessen 1617 in Heidelberg veröffentlichte Bearbeitung und Kommentierung der Luther-Bibel zurück. Toussain war der Sohn des reformierten Theologen Daniel Toussain. Nach dem Theologiestudium in Heidelberg, Altdorf, Genf und Leiden sowie anschliessenden Rektoraten in Deventer und Amsterdam erwarb Paul Toussain 1599 in Basel den theologischen Doktorgrad. Danach wirkte er in verschiedenen Pfarrämtern in Frankenthal und Heidelberg, wo er seit 1613 nebenbei auch noch Dogmatik unterrichtete. Als Delegierter der Kurpfalz nahm er 1618 auch an der Synode der reformierten Gemeinden der Niederlande in Dordrecht teil. Für seine Bibeledition von 1617 griff Toussain auf die Uebersetzungen der Luther-, der Genfer- sowie der Zürcher-Bibel zurück, deren Texte er miteinander verglich, um so hinter die eigentliche Bedeutung des Bibeltextes zu gelangen. Sein Beitrag besteht denn auch vor allem in der Auslegung und neuen Glossierung im Sinne reformierter Glaubenshaltung. Das Abendmahl ist demnach Gedächtnisfeier, und Brot und Wein versteht er als heilige Wahrzeichen (Siegel) für Leib und Blut Christi. Die Textversion des dritten und vierten Buchs Esra sowie des dritten und vierten Buchs der Makkabäer - von Martin Luther selbst nicht in den Corpus der biblischen Texte aufgenommen - folgt der Uebertragung durch Daniel Cramer (1568-1637), Pastor an der Marienkirche in Stettin. Weiteren Anteil an den revidierten Texten hatten Giovanni Diodati, Johann Schönauer, Bonaventura von Brunn, Peter Werenfelss, Theodor Wohlleb und Daniel Schönauer. Das Vorwort des Zürcher Theologen und Professors für Ethik und Naturrecht am Carolinum, Johann Jakob Ulrich (1683-1731), datiert vom 4. Dezember 1728. Nebst der prächtigen Weltkarte nach Nicolas Visscher, finden sich eine weitere doppelblattgrosse "Erklärung, oder geographische Beschreibung' des zwischen Euphrat und Tigris lokalisierten 'Paradieses', die Reiseroute und "Beschreibung der viertzig-jährigen Reise der Kinder Jsrael, eine Regionalkarte von Israel (Beschreibung des jüdischen Landes), von Aegypten und Kleinasien (Anatolien - 'Erklärung der Land-Tafel, über die Reisen der Apostel') und eine doppelblattgrosse Ansicht in Vogelschauperspektive der Stadt Jerusalem. Die sechszehn Kupferstich-Ta. Buchnummer des Verkäufers B349609

Buchbeschreibung: Amsterdam, Visscher, ca. 1685., 1685. Ca. 46 cm x 55 cm. Aus: Atlas Minor.. Der dritte Zustand (erstmals 1656 erschienen) dieser berümten Karte der englischen Kolonien in Nordamerika (mit der Autorenbezeichnung von Nicolaum Visscher und dem Eintrag von Philadelphia). - Von größter Bedeutung ist die Darstellung von New York "Nieuw Amsterdam op t Eylant Manhattans" unterhalb des Titels. Diese Darstellung gilt als die dritte bekannte Ansicht der Stadt New York. - Nicholaes Visscher’s 1656 map is the best known map of New Netherland. It is largely based on a map published by Joannes Janssonius in 1651, which in turn borrowed heavily from the Blaeu map of 1635. Most of the illustrations on the Blaeu map are copied by Visscher, and many of Blaeu’s most glaring errors are also retained, although more accurate information was available by 1650. The Visscher map reflects much of the increase in Dutch knowledge of the geography of the New York area. Long Island is no longer shown as broken up by waterways, and many place names and some new features are added. The Hudson Highlands and the Catskill Mountains are drawn in, and many place names along the Hudson River are shown. The Mohawk River appears--along with a number of villages of the Mohawk Indians. Overall, the map is a rich source of place names for both Indian and European settlements in the middle of the seventeenth century. At the bottom of the map is one of the earliest engravings of New Amsterdam. This map was frequently reprinted, and was regarded as the best map of New Netherland for many years. It was even used by the English king after the conquest of New Netherland to establish the boundary between New York and New Jersey. A non-existent river flowing between the Delaware and the Hudson was used to mark a portion of the boundary between the two colonies. This error may be another example of mistaking an Indian portage route for an actual river. This error caused numerous boundary disputes between New York and New Jersey through most of the colonial period. - Dubliert. Kleinere Schwachstellen, Löcher bzw. Einrisse fachmännisch restauriert.

Buchbeschreibung: Rome, Amsterdam et Rome, s.e., 1620-1629; 3 suites reliées en un volume in-8 oblong, 52 ff. + 26 ff. + 24 ff., plein daim de l'époque, dos muet à nerfs, filet d'encadrement sur les plats, armes non identifiées sur les plats (accidents aux coiffes et aux coins, coupes frottées). Recueil factice de trois suites de gravures italiennes du début du XVIIe siècle, extrêmement rares. La première suite, par Mercati, est composée d'un titre gravé, d'un feuillet de dédicace gravé, et de 50 feuillets de planches (numérotés de 3 à 52, les pages de titre et de dédicace étant comptées comme ff. 1 et 2, sans être numérotées); les deux premiers feuillets présentent des traces anciennes de restauration grossière à la bande adhésive, des marques de pliures et des manques de papier en marges du premier feuillet ; les planches 3 et 4 présentent des traces de pliures (planche 3 avec manque de papier dans la marge) ; les planches 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17 et 36 présentent des traces de mouillures claires avec atteinte aux gravures, aux coins supérieurs gauches ; l'ensemble des marges des planches comporte des rousseurs ou des traces de mouillure sans atteinte aux gravures. Ces vues, dédiées au grand-duc de Toscane Ferdinand II à l'occasion de son voyage à Rome, constituent un itinéraire élégiaque dans les ruines de la Rome ancienne. La suite suivante, par Guilliam van Nieuwelandt, est constituée d'un titre gravé et de 25 gravures sur cuivre, numérotées de 1 à 26 (la gravure n°10 étant absente). Toutes les planches (98 x 153 mm environ) ont été découpées, parfois rognées un peu court, et contrecollées dans le recueil. Référence : Nagler XI, p. 339, nos. 1-26 ; Hollstein (Nieulandt) 50-75, Hollstein (C. J. Visscher) 169-194III. La datation de cette suite gravée de Nieuwelandt est sujette à controverse : certains la donnent en 1618, d'autres en 1628 ; le doute vient du fait que la date gravée de la page de titre est difficilement lisible. La troisième et dernière suite, par Francesco Villamena, est composée d'un titre gravé, d'un avis au lecteur et de 22 gravures numérotées. Comme pour la suite de Nieuwelandt, toutes les planches (122 x 86 mm environ) ont été découpées, parfois rognées un peu court, et contrecollées dans le recueil. Une main ancienne a copié l'une des planches du troisième recueil en regard du sujet, a griffonné une remarque sous l'une des planche de la deuxième série, et a esquissé quelques sujets. Bel ensemble, malgré les défauts signalés, de près d'une centaine de gravures du début du XVIIe, désirable en raison de sa grande rareté. 1620. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 201301032

Contemporary Leather with 7 raised bands and clasps, decorated with gold, large Folio H. 44,5 x L. 28,5 x W. 9/7 cm. (The bindings are slightly grazed at some places, the bottom of the spines are somewhat restored, some wormholes in the inner margin. On the first endpaper a handwritten family index dating from the year 1811 until 1868. The first edition of the Elzevierbible, containing the Old and New Testament and the Apocrypha. With the 6 folding maps by Nicolaes Visscher and interleaved with the series of prints by Cornelis Danckerts after Mattheüs Merian. This series of prints features 6 times 16 engravings on 2 folio sized leaves. This Bible was the first Dutch Bible that was printed in a Roman font. Remarkable is that the text blocks are still in a good condition, the Elzevier printing office experimented a lot to create the blackest of inks. Because of this the text blocks are in almost every case very browned. Attractive set bound in brown-red leather with clasps and decorated with gilt on both the boards and the spine with a design of flowers and vines.) 2 delen, (titelprent, 22) 468, (13) 167 (2) 77 folia. Origineel Leer met ribben en sloten, goudbestempeld, groot Folio H. 44,5 x L. 28,5 x D. 9/7 cm. (De banden zijn plaatselijk licht geschaafd, de ruggen zijn aan de onderkant iets gerestaureerd, plaatselijk wormgaatjes in de binnenste marge. Het eerste schutblad is aan de voor- en achterzijde voorzien van een handgeschreven familieregister daterende van het jaar 1811 tot 1868. Eerste druk van de Elzevierbijbel, bestaande uit het Oude en Nieuwe Testament en de Apocriefen. Met de 6 uitvouwbare kaarten van Nicolaes Visscher en doorschoten met de prentenserie van Cornelis Danckerts naar Mattheüs Merian. Deze bestaat uit 6 maal 16 gravures op 2 foliobladen. Deze Bijbel was de eerste Nederlandse Bijbel die in een Romeinse letter werd gedrukt. Opvallend is dat de boekblokken nog in goede staat zijn, de Elzevier uitgeverij experimenteerde veel met inktsoorten om zo de zwartste druk te verkrijgen. Hierdoor zijn de boekblokken vrijwel altijd erg gebruind. Aantrekkelijke set gebonden in bruin-rood leer met sloten en versierd met goudopdruk op zowel de platten als de rug met een motief van bloemen en ranken.) Poortman, W.C. (1983). Bijbel en Prent.

Buchbeschreibung: Ca. 105 x 147 mm (Platten), Blattgrössen variieren zwischen 146 x 240 mm und 164 x 240 mm. Lose wie erschienen. (Amsterdam), Nicolaes Visscher, (nach) 1664. Komplette Folge der aus sechzehn Radierungen bestehenden Bildserie von Braunbären, radiert nach Vorlagen von Marcus Gheeraerts d. Ae. (1520-1590). Sie zählt zusammen mit jenen über Löwen und Wölfe zu den gefragtesten Tierdarstellungen des niederländischen Malers und Radierers Marcus de Bye. Er entstammte einer adeligen Familie und war Schüler des Landschaftsmalers Jacob van der Does (1623-1673). Zu Beginn seiner Karriere radierte De Bye denn auch vor allem Landschaften, verlegte sich dann aber auf Tierstudien, die er nach De Gheeraerts oder Paulus Potter (1625-1654) radierte. Die vorliegenden Exemplare zeigen die Bärenfolge im dritten von vier Druckzuständen. Der sehr seltene Erstdruck der Platten enthält noch keinen Hinweis auf den Verleger Nicolaes Visscher (1618-1679) und der zweite Zustand enthält noch keine Verlagsnummer im Titel. Der Titel des vierten und letzten Zustands der Pllatten enthält dann nicht mehr den Verlagsnamen von Visscher sondern neu den von Petrus Schenck d.J., der die Platten nach 1720 erwarb. - Papierbedingte gleichmässige minimale Bräunung. Hollstein 75. III; Wurzbach 61-76; Bartsch I. 73 E; Kunstsammlung des Fürsten Carl Philipp zu Schwarzenberg, bestehend aus Kupferstichen, Radierungen (1826), S. 120, Nr. 57; Nagler 678f.; Heller, Praktisches Handbuch für Kupferstichsammler (1823), 125. Complete set of the Bears series etched by Marcus de Bye after the Flemish printmaker and painter associated with the English court of the mid-16th century Gheeraerts the Elder (1520-1590). De Bye was born into a noble family and studied art in The Hague under Jacob van der Does. He began his career by etching both landscapes and animal depictions after his teacher but specialized finaly to animal studies after the designs of Markus Gerard or Paulus Potter (1625-1654). The publishing history for De Bye's etchings is rather well documented. Rare first state impressions lack the address of N. Visscher on the frontis-piece plate and were printed in only a handful of impressions. In the second state impressions Nicolaas Visscher's name appears. This major publisher printed editions of De Bye's sets from approximately 1660 to 1700. Later Petrus Schenk acquired the plates and printed sets bearing his name along the lower margins of the frontis piece etchings. This constitutes the fourth and final state.
