HUNTER, Dard..
[Chillicoth] 1937, Mountain House Press. Morocco spine over pictorial paper boards, 79P., bibliography, signed by Hunter illustrated with photos, and a large number of actual paper samples [wanting 2], else complete, color paintings. R A R E

A stunning and marvelous reference containing actual paper samples. The whole work was printed by hand by the celebrated paper scholar, author and prolific writer on hand-made paper, Dard Hunter. He was the author of numerous other rare and important books on hand-made papers relating to: Japan, Korea, Viet-nam, Siam, as well as others. Please inquire with us for other titles in stock. * CONTENTS: This work contains 48 real specimens of Chinese ceremonial papers, as well as the most beautiful gold & silver foil samples produced in China. The hand-painted joss, "Door," "Kitchen," and other "Gods" are done with the utmost care and attention to detail, all finely painted in polychrome. Its important to point out, that these "Door Gods" were replaced every New Year, the old ones were burned in a ritual, while the new ones were affixed to doors and door jams throughout the house, kitchen and other places. They did not survive, nor were the old ones ever kept as it was considered bad luck, so there are none which survive to this day except for a few found in this book or collected by foreigners. The paintings are exceptionally ornate, reflecting the large number of "Gods" respected and used for good luck and protection during the New Year. Mock money samples representing silver coins as well as a sample silver coin are tipped in. Several of the samples are large and folding, there are also 6 folding pages of text and illustrations. * There are two bamboo paper samples the first is dated from K'ang Hsi [1662-1723], the second is from Ch'ien Lung [1736-1796]. Both are "laid" papers and are from books of the period, one has Chinese characters and Manchurian the other only in Manchurian. These samples are tipped in and nicely described. * A fine suite of eight black & white photographs showing the process of Chinese paper-making as well as tools associated with the art are exhibited. Following also a substantial essay on the techniques of hand-made papers employed in China. * THE BINDING & EDITION: FIRST & ONLY LIMITED, EDITION OF 125 COPIES, SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY THE AUTHOR. This beautiful work was hand-bound by Peter Franck, the spine is red morocco with gold-stamped titles. The covers are covered boards printed from original woodblocks used in making wall decorations for the apartments of the last Emperor of China. The corners are in vellum, the text is printed on paper made by hand in the Orient from mulberry bark. * COLLATION: The work contains 9 photogravures, 2 specimens of old paper printed text, some 48 original ceremonial paper samples, spirit and related papers, 7 illustrations and other graphic plates. Some of the woodcut illustrations are large folding types and very impressive ! * CONDITION: The binding is very nice with minor and usual rubbing to the head/tail of spine, the vellum corners are bright and without any wear. The contents is clean, occasional offsetting which is usual for this work, otherwise a very condition. Some of the samples have minor tears, wrinkles again a common feature of this work. Still in very clean collector's condition. * This is truly one of Dard Hunter's most lavish and beautiful books on hand-made papers. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Dard Hunter: MY LIFE WITH PAPER * Dard Hunter: PAPERMAKING * Joesf Hejzlar: EARLY CHINESE GRAPHICS *[Yuen shih Pan]: SPECIAL EXHIBITION COLLECTORS' SHOW OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE WOODCUT PRINTS. * CHINESE POPULAR PRINTS: Leningrad 1988 * Shucun Wang: PAPER JOSS: Eeity Worship Through Folk Prints. * Clarance Day: CHINESE PEASANT CULTS: Being a Study of Chinese Paper Gods. * Schlosser 38 * Color scans can be sent by email.

<I>Ad 1: Alden & Landis 651/53; Borba de Moraes, p. 19; ad 2: Alden & Landis 651/110; Borba de Moraes, pp. 634-635.</I> First editions of two complementary works, in matching format, similar layout and beautifully and extensively illustrated, devoted to the lives, history and military careers of the three most important stadtholders and Princes of Orange to the time of publication, including a great deal of information on the Eighty Years' War and the Dutch conquests, trade and commerce in the Americas in general and Brazil in particular. In the present copy the engraved title-pages, portraits, coat of arms and illustrations are all beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand, most of them highlighted in gold. The three protagonists are William the Silent of Nassau (1533-1584), leader of the Dutch revolt against Spain and spiritual father of the independent Dutch Republic that took form soon after his assassination, and his two sons Maurits (Maurice) (1567-1625) and Frederick Hendrik (1584-1647) who succeeded him as Princes of Orange and Dutch head of State.Something must have gone wrong with the printing or colouring of Maurits's portrait, for one can see that the portrait was printed on the leaf, but another print from the same plate has been pasted over it as a cancel.With a small tear in the foot of one map and water stains at the foot of the leaves in both works, but otherwise in very good condition. The bindings have cracks in the joints. Beautifully coloured copies of two magnificently illustrated works on the Princes of Orange and Dutch activities in Brazil and elsewhere.

MEERMAN, Gerard.
<I>Bigmore & Wyman II, pp. 32-35; Enschede, Typefoundries, pp. xix, 206; for the binding: cf. De Prijs is het Bewijs 40 b and illustr. 39 for the certificate.</I> First edition of a classic on the origins of printing, the result of many years of research. Bound as a school prizebook, with the prize certificate. Famous in its time for promoting Laurens Coster in Haarlem as the inventor of printing, it broke new ground by its minute study of early printing types, by reproducing samples of them in the 10 finely engraved plates and by its study of paper. Although Coster has long been banished to the realm of fairytale and the books formerly attributed to him are now dated about ten years later than Gutenberg's bible, the methods pioneered by Meerman (with technical advice from the printer and typefounder Johannes Enschede, who in turn took advice from the punchcutter J. M. Fleischman) mark the beginnings of the scientific study of early printing. Very good copy with the printed prize certificate of the Latin School at Amsterdam.

Alexandrinus (1506-1590) was a physician to the Emperors Ferdinand I, Maximilian II and Rudolf II as well as a poet and translator.Both works follow in the tradition of Galenus's <I>De Sanitate Tuenda</I>, but Cardano's is the most original and influential. His discussion of the benefits of cooking with herbs, grains, fruits and vegetables speaks to the modern reader, his advice on hygiene was innovative in his day, and his account of conception, fetal development, birth and early childhood provide a fascinating picture of a sharp and imaginative mind grappling with questions that could not yet be answered. Alexandrinus never ventured as far from Galenus or exerted as much influence as Cardano, but neither was he subject to Cardano's flights of fancy. His present book therefore gives a better picture of accepted views of health, medicine and hygiene in the 16th century.The two books together give a multifarious view of the subject at the dawn of modern science. An important pair of works on Renaissance medicine and hygiene, Cardano's brilliant eccentricity contrasting with Alexandrinus's more conservative approach. The inscription on the title-page (covered with a slip) reads "Monasterii Augiae Minoris" referring to the 12th-century Weißenau Monastery near Ravensburg, dissolved in the first half of the 19th century, later stamps of Swiss libraries on the title-page and paste-down. With a wormhole in the first four leaves slightly affecting one initial letter and only some tiny marginal worm holes in the last few leaves of the first work. Very good copies.

Adams B1077; not in Biblia Sacra.</I> Plantin's 1567 octavo edition of the Louvain Bible with the text in double columns printed in a tiny "Nonpareille" roman type, one of the smallest Bibles of its day, nicely displaying Plantin's excellent presswork and Pierre Haultin's type. The side margins contain references and variants. The title-page has a beautiful ornamental frame as well as Plantin's famous printer's device with a pair of compasses and the legend <I>Labore et constantia.</I>By an imperial edict all suspected Bibles in Latin, French or Dutch had been prohibited and the Theological Faculty of Louvain was commanded to prepare new authorized editions in these languages. The Latin Bible, edited by the Dominican Johannes Hentenius and protected by an Imperial privilege, first appeared in a 1547 folio edition at Louvain, followed by the Dutch edition in 1548 and the French in 1550. In 1559 Christoffel Plantin published his first edition of the Louvain Latin Bible, in a less expensive octavo format. Here at the height of his career he printed it once more.Owner's inscription at foot of title-page: Ph. Sandelion Rothomgensis 1721. In good condition. Binding slightly rubbed with the loss of most of the gilding, spine concaved, only traces of ties.

PERRIER, Francois, and Petrus SCHENCK.
<I>Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) XXV, 542 (portrait) & 1836-1936; 7 copies located in libraries worldwide; cf. Thieme & Becker XXX, pp. 29-30.</I> Rare first and only edition printed from Schenck's plates, of a set of illustrations of statues that survived in Rome, originally drawn, engraved and published by Francois Perrier (1590-1650) in 1638. Except for plates 22 and 23, Schenk's plates appear in mirror image. Among the statues are the Laocoon group, Marcus Aurelius, Cleopatra and many other great works of classical art. The contents (Latin and Dutch in parallel columns) divide the plates into three groups: upright male figures , upright female figures and reclining figures, but in fact the two double-page plates are large groups of upright figures forming scenes. Like the engraved contents list in Perrier's 1638 print series, this list gives some information about the statues, including their locations.The book is dedicated to Christian Eberhard, Fürst of Ostfriesland with an illustrated dedication plate with the Ostfriesland arms and a mezzotint portrait following the title-page. These do not appear in all copies: Picarta lists 3 copies of the present edition, but mentions no portrait.In good condition, with tears expertly and unobtrusively repaired in 3 plates (49-50, 88). Binding with light stains. An attractive presentation of 100 statues or groups of statues from classical antiquity.

BEHR, Johann von der.
<I>Cat. KITLV, p.474; Cat. NHSM I, p. 174; Van Gelder, Het Oost-Indisch avontuur, p. 289; Landwehr, VOC, 309; VD17, 3:307812K.</I> First (and only early) edition of a diary of a nine-year voyage to the East Indies, the Malabar coast in India, Persia and Ceylon, made as a soldier in a merchant ship under the command of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in the years 1641 to 1650. It gives detailed information about the ships, captains and others, providing an intimate account of life onboard a VOC ship as well as the peoples in the exotic lands visited, describing food, drink (including rice wine), tobacco, flora and fauna. The illustrations include a folding view of Batavia (now Jakarta, Indonesia), views of Goa, Isle St Helena and other sites, a cinnamon tree, flying fish, numerous ships and much more. They set off on 21 January 1644 and continued from Batavia under Johan Maetsuycker to Goa, then to Ceylon and Persia and back to the Netherlands in 1650. While some information appears to have been taken from published sources, much of the information is clearly an eye-witness account. Bound for Ernst Friedrich von Döring. Somewhat browned, but otherwise in very good condition and with good margins. The outside corner of 1 leaf is torn off with no loss of text. The front hinge is cracked and there is minor damage to the spine, but the binding is also good. A fascinating account, with many personal details, of a soldier's nine-year voyage with the VOC to the East Indies, India, Persia and Ceylon.

[MANUSCRIPT - MILITARY - FRENCH ROYAL].
[Paris?, 1732].
13.5 x 19 cm.. Contemporary red goatskin morocco, sewn on 5 cords, gold-tooled spine, gold-tooled fillets on boards and board edges, title in 2nd and 3rd of 6 spine compartments (further each with 5 small fleurs-de-lis), blue-black goatskin morocco pastedowns with wide, richly gold-tooled frame, headbands worked in red and white, gilt edges. Manuscript in brown-black, red and blue ink on vellum, some of the lettering and borders gilt. With a beautiful frontispiece painting in coloured gouaches (14 x 9.5 cm) pasted on the page facing the opening of the text, showing a small warship at a shipyard in a small harbour being repaired by workmen. On the left shore a man tends pots on an open fire outside a small hut while 2 others watch and talk, across an inlet behind it are the larger ruins of a church(?) with tower, in the background more people, smaller boats and the far shore. Centred at the foot is a scrollwork shield (leaning against a crate) with the text "Marine du Roy. 1732." Frontispiece plus [2], 26 ll., including 2 double and 1 larger folding.

Splendid vellum manuscript on the condition and organisation of the French Roya Navy of King Louis XV in the year 1732, including maritime data on the French colonies in Canada, Louisiana and the West Indies. The manuscript is beautifully calligraphed in a formal roman and italic in brown-black, red and blue, sometimes with gold covering the ink, with 2 decorated initials in gold over red, one with red decorations and a red and gold frame, the other with red and blue decorations. The use of the high quality vellum, the fine gouache illustration, the lavishly executed calligraphy and the beautiful contemporary binding, indicate that the manuscript must have been produced for an important person, probably a head of the marine or an official at the court.The manuscript contains extensive important and interesting data about the French navy in the year: a list of the King's warships arranged by rank, drawn up on 1 January 1732, showing that 84 warships were available in total, a general list of naval officers and a list of those who serve in the colonies: Canada, West Indies, Louisiana, etc., a specification of the fleet's weaponry per area/colony which is then subdivided to cover the individual vessels, a list of the 138 officers serving in France, etc. While most of the data shows the state of affairs in 1732, leaves 7 to 14 list officers in various categories chronologically from 1691 to 1732.<B><I> </I></B>The manuscript gives a complete survey of the size and organisation of the French navy of the Ancien Regime in 1732 and must have been top secret at the time! Leaves 22 and 23 are double leaves written on the inside only, and leaf 24 is a larger folding double leaf also written on the inside only (in fact, most of the leaf numbers were probably intended to apply to double-page spreads, some with and some without writing on the other sides, but they can be more simply described as numbered leaves).From the library of the well-known art historian and book collector Henri Beraldi (1849-1931), with his two small gold-stamped leather bookplates or labels pasted to the first (paper) endleaf, one with his ca. 1890s MHB monogram in a wreath stamped on green leather and the other with "Ex libris Henri Beraldi" in a decorative frame stamped on orange leather. Beraldi was a great collector of prints and books and owner of one of the finest collections of bindings. He is the author of two important manuals: <I>Les graveurs du XVIIIe siecle</I> and <I>Les graveurs du XIXe siecle: guide de l'amateur d'estampes modernes</I>. He also was perhaps the most distinguished and knowledgeable writer on French bindings of the 19th century.Besides the frontispiece and text leaves, the manuscript has a black sheepskin parchment leaf at front and back, and 2 paper leaves between the blank leaf and pastedown at the front and another 2 at the back.
The paper endleaves are browned, but the manuscript is generally in fine condition, with only an occasional minor spot or small stain. The binding is slightly worn at the hinges, head and foot of spine and on the raised bands, but is also generally fine. It apparently had 2 metal fastenings, attached only with adhesive (traces of the catch-plates and anchor-plates can be seen on the boards). A remarkable and luxurious manuscript providing a wealth of information on the French Royal Navy in 1732.

GRILL, Jan.
Amsterdam, printed for the author and sold by Hendrik van Eyl, [ca. 1716].
4to. Contemporary vellum. With 447 pages of tables. With 4 manuscript leaves of tables added by a contemporary owner. [8], 447, [1 blank] pp.

Practical guide to the calculation of the value of gold and silver of any purity, intended for merchants, mint masters and others who deal with precious metals. The author notes that there is "now" a great deal of low grade gold and silver on the market (below 20 carat and 10 penningen respectively, i.e. below 83 1/3 %), and that previously published guides did not cover these in a convenient manner. He therefore first explains how these metals are weighed in the Netherlands, presenting the units of weight and their relations, and gives instructions for using the tables, with examples. Once one has weighed the gold or silver and assayed it to give the purity in carats/mark or penningen/mark respectively, the tables on pp. 1-223 and 225-395 tell the weight of fine metal in a given weight of impure metal. They cover any purity between 0 and 24 carats in steps of 1/48 carat for gold or between 0 and 12 penningen in steps of 1/24 penningen for silver. Once one knows the weight of fine gold or silver, one can look up its value in guilders in the tables on pp. 224 and 396-447. Since the guilder itself was a gold standard, it needs only one table calculated with a value of 355 guilders/mark. The book allows for a fluctuation in the value of fine silver with tables for every value from 23 1/2 to 26 guilders/mark in increments of 1 stuiver, with an additional table to adjust the figures a half stuiver higher.Grill was himself an assayer. In 1715 he published his tables for gold alone, also sold by Van Eyl, and the present tables for gold and silver probably followed soon after. The heaviest weight listed for both gold and silver is 100 marks (so that the tables could be used without multiplication for weights up to 200 marks), but for silver in four degrees of purity, a contemporary owner has inserted manuscript tables for weights up to 4000 marks.
In very good condition. A rare and valuable window into trade in precious metals in the early 18th-century Netherlands.

Prague, heirs of Peter Bohmann, [1826-1832].
Oblong 4to (19.5 x 25 cm). Contemporary half green sheepskin, on 2 recessed cords, spine with gold and blind fillets and the title "Prague" in gold, vellum corners, green shell-marbled sides (nearly covering the corners), grey Stormont on brown shell (with blue veins) marbled endpapers. A complete series of 28 etched and engraved views of Prague (unnumbered), including the title-print with a view of Prague through the doorway of a tower of Prague Castle, with the title inside above the doorway, all subtly coloured in watercolour, as published. With a 3-page contemporary manuscript table of contents. 3 ms. pp. on 2 ll., [1], [28], [1] engr. ll. <I>With:</I><B>(2) [MAP - PRAGUE].</B> Neuester Grundriss von Prag.

MORSTADT, Vinzenz.</B> Panorama von Prag, aufgenommen in Gloriet des Gräflich Schönborn'schen Gartens am Laurenzberg.Prague, Borosch & Andre, [1835].Engraved folding panorama (13 x 71 cm; plate size 16 x 74 cm).

A lovely book containing a rare complete set of subtly hand-coloured views of Prague, drawn from life by Vinzenz Morstadt (1802-1875), a Bohemian jurist and judge, who was also a very fine amateur painter. Prague Castle had been the seat of the Holy Roman Empire from 1346 to 1437 and 1583 to 1611, when it was a flourishing cultural centre. The Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II united a cluster of four urban areas on the Vltava (Moldau) River to form the modern city of Prague in 1784. The present views were published just as it was beginning to flourish again as a cosmopolitan city with many cultural and historical attractions for tourists. The book includes all of the city's leading architectural and other sights, shown in daily life with people engaged in various activities in the streets and on the river. In addition to the best known buildings of the old and new city (including the cathedral, the 10th-century Vyshehrad and Tycho Brahe's observatory), it shows several views of the famous Prague Bridge, the ancient Jewish cemetery and the hills surrounding the city. They are naturally coloured and the clouds delicately rendered. Engelmann lists the 28 views in a different order and numbers them, but they clearly correspond with the 28 present here. He indicates that they were published in instalments from 1826 to 1832. Most of the views were etched and engraved by Jiri (Georg) Döbler (1788-1845), a few by Morstadt himself and a few by three others.The series is preceded by a detailed folding map of the city, engraved by C. Stein in Vienna but published in Prague, first by Alois Borrosch in 1825 but here revised for the second edition in 1830. The coloured views are followed by the folding panorama of the city, again drawn by Morstadt, but engraved by Friedrich Geißler in Nürnberg though published in Prague by Borrosch & Andre, who succeeded Alois Borrosch. Nagler indicates that it was published in the first instalment (1835) of a series published under the title, <I>Prag im 19. Jahrhunderte schönsten Ansichten</I>. So the various elements in the present book were all published in the years 1826 to 1835. Two leaves before the map contain a 3-page table of contents. All elements are on wove paper. That for the manuscript table of contents is English (J Whatman|Turkey Mill|1831) but the 1835 panorama is listed, so the whole book was probably assembled ca. 1835. The paper of the coloured prints is watermarked "HS". The map and panorama show no watermark.
With the contemporary engraved armorial bookplate of Andre de Preau in Paris. With very faint browning or foxing, and the title of the city map shaved, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding very good, with only slight wear at the extremities. An extensive series of beautifully coloured views of Prague.

SCHULTENS, Albert.
Editio seconda. Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvar, Klausenburg), Sandor (Alexander) Szathmari Pap, 1743.
4to. Contemporary gold-tooled sprinkled tanned sheepskin, sewn on 5 supports, each board with the Diesbach Belleroche coat of arms (with motto "Respice finem"), probably a son of Nicolas de Diesbach Belleroche (1668-1735) in Switzerland, gold-tooled spine and raised bands with vellum label in 2nd of 6 compartments, gold-tooled board edges, red sprinkled edges. Title-page printed in red and black with woodcut basket of flowers, a woodcut interlaced tailpiece, 2 woodcut decorated initials (2 series) and a headpiece built up from cast fleurons. Set in roman and italic types with extensive Hebrew, incidental fraktur, Greek (2 sizes) and Arabic, and one 3-letter word in Samaritan. [30], 501, [84], [1 blank] pp.

Second edition of Albert Schultens's renowned grammar of biblical Hebrew, first published by Luzac in Leiden in 1737 and here printed and published by Sandor Szathmari Pap in Kolozsvar, Transylvania (now Cluj-Napoca in Rumania, known in German as Klausenburg). Schultens (1686-1750), known as the father of comparative Semitic philology, taught Hebrew at Franeker and Leiden. He wrote extensively on the relationship between Hebrew and other Semitic languages, claiming that Arabic and Hebrew were "twin sisters". He used Arabic to interpret obscure Hebrew passages in the Bible. Schultens's extensive grammar was one of the most influential Hebrew grammars of the 18th century. It was translated into Dutch in 1750 and reprinted in 1756.The printing of such a work was an ambitious project for any printer at this date and especially for a printer in Eastern Europe, requiring Greek, Hebrew, Arabic and perhaps even Samaritan (it's difficult to judge from the three letters used on fol. E2v whether the Samaritan was set in type or woodcut). Pap was printer to the Reformed Church College at Kolozsvar from 1731 to 1745, succeeding his father(?) Samuel Szathmari Pap, who died in 1730. He was also a typefounder and supposedly even a punchcutter, and in 1732 he was granted permission to cast new founts of type using the matrices of Transylvania's leading seventeenth-century printer Nicolaus Kis (Kis Miklos of Totfalu), which had been bequeathed to the college in 1723/24. Many of the roman and italic types in the present book are therefore Kis's 17th-century types (mistakenly dubbed "Janson" when revived in the 1920s). The large Hebrew used for the head-letters of the index is also Kis's and probably also the smaller one used throughout the book. Kis never cut an Arabic and it is not clear where Pap acquired his rudimentary Arabic type. If the three-letter word in Samaritan is set from type, Pap may have cut the three sorts needed himself.
Slightly browned and foxed, but otherwise in very good condition and only slightly trimmed (preserving an occasional deckle). Diesbach Belleroche probably acquired the book with the spine and board edges already gold-tooled and had his arms added, for the gold of the spine and edges was not well bonded and has been largely lost. The binding shows a few small worm holes, small cracks in the spine and other minor damage, but is still good. The rare second edition of an important work, also a remarkable example of Transylvanian book production.

BLAEU, Joan.
Amsterdam, Joan Blaeu, 1654.
Atlas folio (57.5 x 39.5 cm). 17th-century Dutch gold-tooled vellum sewn on 12 double cords, each board with a gold-tooled centre-piece in a double frame of gold-tooled filets (double for the outer, quadruple for the inner) with a gold-tooled crown, gold-tooled fleuron and blind-tooled triple acorn in each corner of the inner frame and a smaller gold-tooled fleuron at each corner of the outer frame, delicate gold-tooled floral decorations in each spine compartment except the 2nd and 3rd, which have the title stamped in black, red-sprinkled edges. With engraved architectural title-page with the arms of Scotland filling the top half, elaborately crested, supported by unicorns with flags and still with the old Stuart royalist mottos, and 55 engraved maps (54 double-page and 1 of the Irish County Caterlogh, full-page), often richly adorned with additional cartouches with regional scenes, but most often with coats of arms from the region. Numerous woodcut tailpieces and decorated initial letters. The title-page and all maps, including the cartouches, scenes and coats of arms, beautifully coloured by hand and highlighted with gold. All maps in their first states, without added ships or compass roses. [8], 189, [1 blank], 70, [1, 1 blank] pp.

First edition, in Dutch, of the first national atlas of Scotland, far more accurate than any previously published, complete with the atlas of Ireland, the whole beautifully executed by Blaeu's printing office and with the engraved title-page, maps, and the cartouches, pictorial scenes and coats of arms in the maps coloured by a contemporary hand and highlighted with gold. The maps are coloured in outline, but with cities, forests, mountain ranges, etc. also coloured. It was published both separately and (as in the present copy) as the 5th volume of the 9-volume Dutch edition of Blaeu's <I>Atlas major</I> or <I>Grooten atlas</I>.Willem Jansz. Blaeu initiated work on a Scottish atlas ca. 1631, based at first on manuscript maps made by Timothy Pont ca. 1596-1600, but it was set aside. Blaeu died in 1638 and his son Joan returned to the project, gaining the patronage of King Charles I of England in 1641. King Charles enlisted the Scottish geographer Robert Gordon, near Aberdeen, who carried out new surveys to correct and supplement Pont's maps. The English Civil War delayed work further. King Charles was beheaded in 1649, so when the atlas finally appeared in 1654 (in Latin, French, Dutch, German and Spanish editions) it bore a privilege from (among others) Oliver Cromwell. It was the second volume to be completed (after France) of what was to become Blaeu's most famous atlas ("the greatest and finest atlas ever published": De la Fontaine Verwey), the Dutch edition completed in 1665. The title in the letterpress slip on the engraved title-page and the volume number on the spine show that the present copy was included as part of the <I>Grooten atlas</I>, but both the states of the maps and the variant readings in the letterpress text show the versions noted by Van der Krogt in the earliest copies, issued separately, confirming the title-page date 1654.The paper of the maps and letterpress text, as well as the endpapers, are watermarked with a figure of Atlas, which came to be used as the name for one of the largest paper formats, larger than the old Bolognese Imperial (though the dimensions of Imperial, Atlas and Colombier often overlap). This gives the text leaves and maps very generous outer margins of about 6 to 13 cm. The main text and preliminaries are set in four large roman types cut by Nicolaes Briot, the largest accompanied by Christoffel van Dijck's italic.
In good condition, with a few leaves browned, a few creased, and occasional minor water stains or foxing. The first atlas of Scotland and Ireland, splendidly produced by Joan Blaeu.

Seltene erste Ausgabe. - "Schon gegen 1692 gab es so viele Münzen, deren Substrat Product alchemistischer Kunst sein sollte, dass es dem Kieler Professor Samuel Reyher an Material für die in jenem Jahr veröffentlichte Schrift 'de numis quibusdam ex chymico metallo factis' nicht fehlte" (Kopp). - Stellenweise gebräunt bzw. stockfleckig. Die ersten beiden Blätter mit ergänzten Randfehlstellen (ohne Textverlust), sonst gut erhalten. - Ferguson II, 260; Kopp I, 93; VD17 12:136663Q; Neu 3488; Bolton 1031; Duveen 505 Rare first edition. - "In the present work, besides describing coins made from chemical gold and silver, he has chapters on Chemical Enigmas, Goldmaking among the Egyptians, on Mercury, on the goodness of chemical gold, on the Canon law condemning goldmaking..." (Ferguson). - With 2 text copper engravings, several text woodcuts, 1 genealogical folded plate. - Contemporary vellum. - Some browning and foxing. Restored marginal losses to first two leaves. Very good
