Blaeu, Johannes & Martini, Martino - Novus Atlas Sinensis A Martino Martinio, 17 Maps, 1655

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: "Novus Atlas Sinensis a Martino Martinio.... " Amsterdam: Joannes & Willem Blaeu, 1655. Large Folio (565 x 365mm), Contemporary Publisher's Dutch Panelled Vellum Gilt over boards, with yapp edges, gilt-stamped rectangular frames and floral borders encasing a central lozenge-shaped floral ornament.Engraved hand-coloured title page showing putti around a globe and a map of China, with the title printed on an open door, 4 pages of Dedications, 216, [16], xviii, 40 pp. Illustrated with 17 double-page, hand-coloured engraved maps, 16 of China and one of Japan. First and Only Dutch Edition. Title Page and maps in contemporary publisher's hand-colouring. Blaeu's Novus Atlas Sinensis represents the first European Atlas of China. It remained the standard geographical work on China until the publication of D'Anville's Atlas de la Chine of 1773. Dedicated to the V.O.C. (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie or The Dutch East India Company), to the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III, and to Archduke Leopold Maria of Austria. Of significance and contrary to all other maps printed by the Blaeu firm in their early atlases, the Novus Atlas Sinensis has all the maps printed on one side only, all the versos blank. The volume was prepared by the Jesuit priest Father Martino Martini (1614-1661), an Italian Jesuit missionary in China who made use of "Chinese materials from a much earlier date, originally an atlas compiled by Chu-Ssu-pên in about 1312" (Shirley p. 241). Ferdinand von Richthofen in his China; Ergebnisse eigner Reisen und darauf gegründeter Studien, 1877-85, called Martini's Novus Atlas Sinensis "the most complete geographical description of China that we possess, and through which Martini has become the father of geographical learning on China." "Martino Martini's Novus Atlas Sinensis was the first atlas and geography of China to be published in Europe. The seventeen maps are noteworthy for their accuracy, remarkable for the time, but also for their highly decorative cartouches featuring vignettes depicting regional dress, activities and animals The volume was published as a separate volume by Blaeu in 1655, however, the maps were also included in volume VI of Blaeu's Nieuwe Atlas 1649-58 in Dutch. Koeman BL 29C [2:223.1LU] and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum; sive, Novus Atlas 1655 in Latin (Koeman BL 52 [2: 22521A]) Silk ties trimmed to binding, minor repairs to head and tail of spine, minor browning to a few Maps as usual, a few maps with very light crease near centre fold. A very fine copy and excellent Atlas in original colours.

Lyell, Charles - Principles of Geology, First Edition, 1830-32

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: "Principles of Geology, being an attempt to explain the former changes of the earth's surface, by references to causes now in operation" London: John Murray, 1830-32, 3 volumes, 8vo. xv, [1], 511; xii, 330, [2]; xxxi, [1], 398, 109pp., plus 4pp. publisher's advertisements. 11 plates, including 3 engraved frontispieces (2 hand-coloured), and 3 maps (2 folding, 2 hand-coloured), later half green morocco, old boards. First Edition. Lyell's Principles of Geology revolutionized the science of geology. The work had two major and controversial goals: First, to establish a strict uniformitarian theory of the earth based upon a knowledge of the existing causes and effects of geological change; and second, to give a specific meaning to the term geology; and establish its proper position relative to the other physical sciences. Lyell's work had profound influence upon Charles Darwin, who read the Principles aboard the Beagle. Not only did the work shape Darwin's understanding of geology, but its discussion of the problems of evolution stimulated Darwin's thinking on the subject. The first edition was published in an edition of 1,500 copies and sold for fifteen shillings a copy. Lyell received 200 guineas for the work. The title page of Vol. I indicates that the work was originally intended to be published in two volumes. Norman 1398. Greene, Geology in the 19th Century, pp. 70-76. Rudwick, The Meaning of Fossils, pp. 174-191. Ward & Carozzi, Geology Emerging, 1407. Wilson, Charles Lyell: The Years to 1841, pp. 146-47; 210. Frontis to Volume 1 foxed, as is the Map to volume 2. Small closed margin tear to plate 2, volume 3. Otherwise good.

Muller, Johann J. Manuscript Atlas detailing the Lands and Forests of Harz, Western Thuringia, Owned by a Noble Family, Germany, 22 Maps, 1732

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: "Wernisches Lager Buch" 1731-1732, Germany, Folio (380 X 250mm), Full Contemporary Calf, Spine with gilt arabesque designs in compartments within raised bands, red morocco title-piece 'Lager Buch', with a fine allegorical title in watercolour representing the triumph of christianity over superstition, manuscript dedication to Baron Karl Ludwig of Desenberg, 177 manuscript pages of text and 22 double-page and folding manuscript maps, finely coloured, the maps have elaborate cartouches displaying cartographers, figures using surveying instruments, gardeners, woodsmen, cherubs and putti etc. An extraordinary and lavishly produced atlas by a gifted cartographer and surveyor, of which little is known.This beautiful atlas was compiled to detail the lands and estates belonging to Baron Karl Ludwig (Baron von Spiegel) in Harz, Western Thuringia. The maps describe the forests, meadows, lakes, ponds, fields and gardens, paths and roads and are enhanced with green, yellow and brown colours, embellished with highly decorative cartouches and compass roses with mile pointers to give distances. The text is written in a competent, professional hand describing the lands and boundaries, with title headings in a gothic script.Baron Ludwig was an officer in the Russian and Prussian army during the early eighteenth century. This atlas outlines his possessions and the borders of his vast estates spreading across Desenberg in the lower parts of the Harz Mountains, West Germany.In 1070 Desenburg was conquered by The emperor Henry IV. It was given to the Counts of Schwalinberg by Henry the Lion. In 1168 Widikund of Schwalinberg was forcefully expelled for insubordination and in 1192 Henry VI gave the castle to the Bishop of Paderborn. It has been in the possession of the family of Herren von Spiegel, now Grafen von Spiegel zu Desenberg since the 17th century.A rare survival in particularly fine condition.
