A pair of globes (44 cm diameter), terrestrial and celestial, each with 12 engraved gores (the terrestrial globe also with 2 engraved polar caps) over a plaster-covered core. The terrestrial globe includes 3 decorative cartouches (1 double), rhumb lines, 12 compass roses, dozens of ships, sea monsters and classical gods in the sea, and some animals on the land. The celestial globe includes 2 decorative cartouches (the tide cartouche below a tiny portrait of Tycho Brahe) and about 45 constellations represented pictorially, mostly named. It distinguishes stars by 6 different magnitudes. Each globe coloured by a contemporary hand, with a brass meridian ring and hour ring. Each globe in a new oak stand in 17th-century style with a facsimile horizon ring. A pair of rerrestrial and celestial globes prepared by Jodocus Hondius the younger (1597-1651), engraved by Abraham Goos and first published by Hondius and his brother-in-law Johannes Janssonius in 1623, the terrestrial globe here in its first state (1623) and the celestial globe in its second (1648). In this period Amsterdam was the world `s leading centre of globe manufacturer and in Amsterdam Hondius (succeeding his father in 1612) and Willem Jansz. Blaeu stood head and shoulders above the rest. "Globe production in the period after 1597 was characterized by an interaction between Hondius and Blaeu. Whenever one came up with something new, the other followed with something better to try to outdo his competitor" (V. d. Krogt, p. 187). Van der Krogt notes that Hondius`s 1623 celestial globe appears to take Blaeu`s 68 cm globe (engraved in 1617) as its model. The terrestrial globe includes a note to the reader, explaining that the globes contain "changes in all of America and in and around the Sea of Tartary [= Arctic Sea], as well as a multitude of new things in other places". It shows the discoveries of Henry Hudson in the Arctic and what is now the northern United States and Canada (1607-1611) and of Schouten & Le Maire in the South Seas (1615-1617) and is dedicated to the Dutch West India Company (wic). The globes come from the collection of the Dukes of Luynes in their historical residence Chateau de Dampierre, southwest of Paris. The globes have been professionally restored (a detailed condition report is available on request). The stands are new, with reproductions of the original meridian rings. The stands and rings are based on those of the set at the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin. A splendid and very rare pair of Hondius 44 cm globes, engraved in 1623. V.d. Krogt, Globi Neerlandici HON VI, terrestrial state I (unrecorded variant between 1* and 1j) & celestial state 2; not in E. Dekker, Globes at Greenwich; V.d.Krogt, Old globes in the Netherlands.

A pair of beautiful 47 cm globes, dedicated to King William III of England - Coronelli, Vincenzo. Globum huiusmodi, terraqueum [& coelestem] Gulielmo III. invictissimo, ac potentissimo Magnae Britanniaem etc ... [Dedication signed:] London, Vincenzo Coronelli, 1696. A pair of globes (47 cm diameter), terrestrial and celestial, each with 12 engraved gores and 2 polar calottes. Each globe coloured by a later hand and varnished. Each with a wooden meridian and horizon ring, the horizon ring covered with a reproduction of an engraved sheet and the meridian ring painted in yellow and red with manuscript notes. Each globe in a wooden stand in 17th-century style. 385.000,00 EUR
A pair of beautiful globes, in their first state, by the celebrated Venetian globe maker Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718), who worked extensively for the French and British markets. "His reputation in the field was established in 1681 with the production of the so-called `Marly globes` .. . made for the French king, Louis XIV. Coronelli seems to have sensed that the nobility of Europe wanted grand globes. These, then, he would provide!" (Dekker, p. 112). One of them is the present pair of globes dedicated to William of Orange, Stadholder of The Netherlands and King of England as William III. "In geographical names the map records are very full, these being given either in Italian, Spanish, Latin, Dutch, English, or in the native language of the country in which they appear. ... Legends are exceedingly numerous, many of them recording incidents relating to certain expeditions or to certain discoveries, such as the expedition of Magellan; early expeditions along the west coast of North America, including reference to Cortes, Ulloa, Alarçon, Cabrillo, Guzman, Drake, expeditions to the East Indies, including that of Le Maire, Hoorn, Van Diemen, Chaumony, and others. Boundary lines of local regions, in both the Old and the New World are exceedingly numerous, which fact in itself gives a somewhat unique value to the map as of geographical and historical value. California appears as an island, and a great stretch of ocean appears between northwest North America and northeast Asia wherein is located land with indefinite outline marked, `Terra de Jesso ó Jeco, Yedco, Esso et Sesso Scoperta dagli Hollandesi i`anno 1643. The map of North America is particularly of interest and value, especially for the region of the United States" (Stevenson). "Thirty-eight constellations are designated in the northern hemisphere, twelve in the zodiac, and thirty-three in the southern hemisphere, thus adding thirty-five to the number as given by Ptolemy. Instead of Ptolemy`s 1022 catalogued stars, including fifteen of the first magnitude, forty-five of the second, two hundred and eight of the third, four hundred and seventy-four of the fourth, two hundred and seventeen of the fifth, forty-nine of the sixth, and forty which were nebular and indistinct, Coronelli gives the number as 1902, including eighteen of the first, sixty-eight of the second, two hundred and thirty-seven of the third, four hundred and ninety-six of the fourth, four hundred and eighty-nine of the fifth, five hundred and sixteen of the sixth, and seventy-eight which were nebular and indistinct. Five of the latter, having been discovered in the previous one hundred and twenty-five years, had wholly or in part disappeared in Coronelli`s day, of which, that making its appearance in the constellation Cassiopeia in the year 1572 disappeared in the year 1574, that discovered in the year 1596 in the Whale was rapidly diminishing in size, that discovered by Tycho Brahe in the Swan in the year 1600 ceased to be visible in the year 1629 to reappear in the year 1659, that in the Serpent larger than the planet Jupiter which was visible but thirteen months, that in the head of the Swan discovered in the year 1670 and still visible" (Stevenson on the 1688 celestial globe, largely matching the present vesion). One of the celestial globe`s cartouches has some minor damage and another`s left side doesn`t align exactly with its right. Some restorations to the paper and with the primed horizon rings in facsimile. A beautiful pair of globes.

Literature; Dekker, E. Globes at Greenwich ( Oxford,1999 ). Dekker, E. and van der Krogt, P., Globes from the Western World, London, 1993. Van der Krogt, p, Old Globes in the Netherlands ( Utrecht, 1984 ). - Gerard Valk, or Gerrit Leendertsz Valck ( 1652 -1726 ), together with his son Jeonard, were the only significant publishers of globes in the Netherlands in the eighteenth century, enjoying an almost total monopoly in the first half of the 1700 s. Initially an engraver and art dealer, and having worked for map-sellers Christopher Brown and david Loggan in London between 1672 and 1679, Valk established the firm in Amsterdam 1n 1687 in co-operation with his brother-in-law Petrus Schenk (ca. 1661-1711). Initially they published maps and atlases. But in 1700 the company moved to the shop to the building previously occupied by map and globe-maker Jodocus Hondius. In 1701, he applied for a charter for making globes and the "Planetolabium", designed by Lotharius Zumbach de Coesfelt ( 1661-1727),an astronomy lecturer at leiden University.

Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici II, Me 58/64. Vollständiger erster Teil des zweiten Bandes mit allen Karten zu Frankreich und der Schweiz. Der zweite Teil (Niederlande/Belgien) wurde vom Vorbesitzer entfernt und durch eine Schatulle ersetzt, die der Aufbewahrung kleinformatiger Karten oder Dokumente diente. Die Kollation entspricht den Angaben von Koeman, allerdings wurde die Gesamtkarte durch die moderne Fassung "Galliae, Nova et Accurata descriptio Vulgo Royaume De France" ersetzt. Seit 1650 wurde auf dem Titelblatt keine Jahreszahl vermerkt und das mittlere Feld mit dem typographischen Titel blieb leer. Dieses musste dann nicht mehr umgestochen werden, sondern konnte für die verschiedenen Editionen gleich bleiben. Vielmehr wurde das Titelsegment separat gedruckt und montiert. In vorliegendem Exemplar ist das Titelblatt mit unbedrucktem und unmontiertem Titelfeld erhalten. Ein zu montierender Titel liegt jedoch faksimiliert bei. Die Klappschatulle am Rückdeckel enthält 35 Holzschnitte und Kupferstiche, meist Landkarten und Pläne, aus dem 16.-18. Jh.

23 Bände in weitgehend gleicher Ausstattung. Beim zweiten Band ist das hintere Gelenk einige Zentimeter weit aufgeplatzt. Bei einigen Bänden ist das Leder etwas rissig, sie sind alle nur geringfügig berieben und bestoßen, und die meisten haben am Rücken Schatten einer vormaligen Signatur. Im ersten Band stehen einige wenige Marginalien in Bleistift. Die übrigen Bände sind auf dem Titel gestempelt ("Gymnasial-Bibliothek Lemgo") und auf dem Vortitel mit einer handschriftlichen Signatur versehen. - Carl Ritters (1779 - 1859) "Erdkunde" ist, obwohl Fragment geblieben ,sein Lebenswerk. Sein Plan war, in einem ersten Teil die geologischen Aspekte der Kontinente zu beschreiben, in einem zweiten die hydrographischen, meteorologischen, sowie vulkanologischen Gegebenheiten "in ihrem großen Erdzusammenhange" darzustellen; in einem dritten wollte er schließlich "das Ganze der Erdoberfläche", Mineral-, Pflanzen- und Tierreich in ihrem Verhältnis zur Erde und zur Geschichte untersuchen, weil sie den Zusammenhang von Natur und Völkergeschichte herstellten. Der Mensch sollte lediglich "leitender Gedankenfaden" aller drei Teile sein und als "lebendiger Spiegel der Natur" deutlich werden. Zu vollenden gelang ihm die geographische Beschreibung Afrikas, Ost- (außer Japan) und Westasiens, Arabiens, der Sinai-Halbinsel, Palästinas und Syriens, sowie Kleinasiens, wovon der dritte Teil nicht mehr erschienen ist. - Ritters Interesse an der außereuropäischen Welt macht ihn zu einem frühen Vorkämpfer gegen Sklaverei und Rassismus.
