TOTIUS AMERICAE SEPTENTRIONALIS ET MERIDIONALIS MAP BY J. B. HOMANN, CIRCA 1737,

Lot 553: TOTIUS AMERICAE SEPTENTRIONALIS ET MERIDIONALIS MAP BY J. B. HOMANN, CIRCA 1737,

by Houston Auction Company

July 13, 2014, 11:00 AM CST

Houston, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $750 - $1,500

Description: TOTIUS AMERICAE SEPTENTRIONALIS ET MERIDIONALIS MAP BY J. B. HOMANN, CIRCA 1737, 20" x 23". Framed. NOTE: Johann Baptist Homann (March 20, 1664 - July 1, 1724) was the most prominent and prolific map publisher of the 18th century. Homann was born in Oberkammlach, a small town near Kammlach, Bavaria, Germany. As a young man Homann studied in a Jesuit school and nursed ambitions of becoming a Dominican priest before converting to Protestantism in 1687. Following his conversion, Homann moved to Nuremberg and found employment as a notary. Around 1693 Homan briefly relocated to Vienna, where he lived and studied printing and copper plate engraving until 1695. Afterwards he returned to Nuremberg where, in 1702, he founded the commercial publishing firm that would bear his name. In the next five years Homann produced hundreds of maps and developed a distinctive style characterized by heavy detailed engraving, elaborate allegorical cartouche work, and vivid hand color. The Homann firm, due to the lower cost of printing in Germany, was able to undercut the dominant French and Dutch publishing houses while matching the diversity and quality of their output. By 1715 Homann's rising star caught the attention of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles the VI, who appointed him Imperial Cartographer. In the same year he was also appointed a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Homann's prestigious title came with a number of important advantages including access to the most up to date cartographic information as well as the "Privilege". The Privilege was a type of early copyright offered to a few individuals by the Holy Roman Emperor. Though not as sophisticated as modern copyright legislation, the Privilege did offer a kind of limited protection for several years. Most all J. B. Homann maps printed between 1715 and 1730 bear the inscription "Cum Priviligio" or some variation. Following Homann's death in 1726, the management of the firm passed to his son Johann Christoph Homann.

Lot 343: Florencia, Francisco de. Origen del Célebre Santuario de Nuestra Señora de San Juan. México: 1801.

Description: R - Florencia, Francisco de. Origen del Célebre Santuario de Nuestra Señora de San Juan. México: Reimpreso por Don Mariano de Zuñiga y Ontiveros, 1801. 16o. marquilla, 5 h. + 230 p. Página 230 mal paginada, dice 229. Puntas inferiores gastadas. Encuadernado en pasta dura, en piel. Worldcat registra 4 copias de ésta edición. En 1526, en una capilla del Hospital, fray Antonio de Segovia, misionero franciscano, dejó una estatua de la Virgen María; entregado a sus correrías evangelizadoras, el fraile no regresó por ella; pronto, en manos desconocidas la llevaron a la sacristía donde se cubrió de polvo. En 1623 llegó a San Juan una caravana de saltimbanquis para presentar su espectáculo. Entre ellos había una niña volatinera; una mañana en que ensayaba sus piruetas para la función de la noche tropezó clavándose unas espadas y murió. Sus padres desesperados llevaron el cuerpo a la capilla del hospital. El sacristán estaba casado con una india de nombre Ana Lucía, que veneraba aquella estatuilla de la Virgen arrumbada en la sacristía. Ana Lucía consoló a los padres de la niña diciéndoles que Cihuapili, es decir Nuestra Señora en náhuatl, iba a darle otra vez la vida. La anciana indígena tomando la estatua la pasó sobre el cuerpo inerte de la niña y ésta comenzó a moverse. También milagrosamente la estatua deteriorada por los años lucía renovada; fue colocada en el altar principal de la capilla del hospital. El prodigio de Nuestra Señora de San Juan se conoció en toda la Nueva Galicia. El padre Florencia cuenta que, en 1668, la Virgen curó de manera milagrosa a un mulato joven, inválido desde hacía diez años, y en agradecimiento el muchacho dejó sus muletas como ofrenda ante el altar de la Virgen de San Juan de los Lagos. Esta ofrenda marca el inicio de una tradición; al principio, los fieles se llevaban del santuario algún objeto, reliquias de la Virgen, pero a partir de 1668 los peregrinos llegan con ofrendas, con regalos para ella.
