Planiglobii Terrestris cum Utroq Hemisphaerio Caelesti

One of the most decorative eighteenth century world maps. This J.B. Homann’s double hemisphere map of the world is richly embellished with celestial models of the northern and southern hemispheres and other natural phenomena such as waterspouts, a rainbow, earthquakes, and the Mt. Etna in Sicily erupting. Wind heads occupy the starry heavens, and two cherubs hold the title banner aloft. The map includes many famous cartographic inaccuracies with an unusually elongated northwest coastline in North America, labeled Terra Esonis. It also shows an incomplete Australia, although with place names and notes of the early discoverers included. The east coast of New Zealand is shown, along with the Tracts of Tasman’s 1642 voyage and Magellan’s Voyage. The detail in Southeast Asia is very interesting for the period, as is the treatment of Japan. Interesting text panels at bottom describe the natural phenomena.

SCENOGRAPHICA TOTIUS TEMPLI HIEROSOLYMITANI

A very rare fantastic artistic recreation of the Temple in Jerusalem by one of the 17th century’s most skilful and prolific artists and etchers. This fantastic view of the Temple in Jerusalem, imagined before its destruction, presents the Temple as though it were an imagined a Renaissance-style palace. Built on an enormous masonry base, the huge neo-classical building is surrounded by colonnades, and connected at its sides to the surrounding city by arched bridges over steep ravines. The city buildings themselves have an architectural air of 17th-century London. We have only been able to trace 3 copies at auction in the past 40 years.
