"Tipus Vindeliciae sive utriusque Bavariae, secundum antiquum et recentiorem situm ab Joanne Aventino olim descriptus, Principibusque eiusdem regionis dedicatus, atque Landshuti editus Anno a Christo nato, 1533"

Kupferradierung nach der Vorlage von Johann Georg Turmair,

latinisiert Johannes Aventinus (1477 Abensberg - Regensburg 1534).

Aventinus schuf 1523 die erste Landkarte von Bayern. Von ihr gab es einen höchst dekorativen Holzschnitt, umrahmt von Wappen bayerischer Städte. 1533 erschien ein Kupferstich von dieser Karte ohne die Umrandung mit dem Titel der Karte in einer typischen Renaissance-Kartusche.

Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598), der 1570 den ersten Weltatlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarium" in Antwerpen herausgab, erwarb und benutzte diese Kupferplatte für die erste Ausgabe seines Atlas. Obwohl dieser Atlas erst 1570 erschien, wurde die Jahreszahl 1533 natürlich mutgedruckt.

Schon während der ersten Auflage erfuhr Ortelius von der sehr viel präziseren Bayernkarte von Philipp Apian (1531-1589). Er erwarb die Rechte zum Abdruck, während der 1571 erschienenen Auflage des "Theatrums" und ersetzte mitten im Druck die Aventinische Karte gegen die Apiansche Karte aus.

So kam es, dass die Bayernkarte von Johannes Aventinus nur in sehr geringer Zahl gedruckt wurde (1570 die ganze Auflage und 1570 in Teilausgabe). Das macht die Aventunus-Karte zu einer äusserst seltenen und begehrenswerten Karte.

Vindelicien war der Name der römischen Provinz, die im 4 Jahrhundert im Zuge der Reichsreformen Kaiser Diokletians so benannt wurde. Sie umfasste Teile des heutigen bayerischen Schwabens, Oberbayerns und Niederbayerns. Augsburg trug damals den Namen Augusta Vindelicorum.

Die Karte führt die deutschen Städtenamen und, wo vorhanden, die römischen Bezeichnungen. In der West-Ost-Ausdehnung zeigt die Karte von Rain an Lech und Donau sowie Füssen bis Peurbach an der Donau bis St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut. Im Norden reicht die Karte von Cham bzw. Furt im Wald bis Innsbruck.

In München gibt es eine Katholische Deutsche nichtschlagende Studentenverbindung namens "Vindelicia".

Leichte Altersbräunung. Weite Margen. In der unteren Marge einige Restaurierungen. Die Karte selbst in sehr gutem Zustand.

"Nr. 1. Return from Market"

Mezzotinto engraving by John Raphael Smith (1751-1812)

Painter: George Morland (1762-1804)

Publisher: I.R. Smith. London, dated 1801

On their way home from selling produce and possibly animals at the market, a farmer's family stops at an inn for refreshments. The inn is obviously owned by a farmer. He shares a beer with his traveller guests while the some stay on the wagon where they are served a refreshment. Donkey also drinks his share of water. And a sow with her piglets is typically searching the ground for edibles. In other words: A typical rustic scene, painted by George Morland. J.R. Smith is a master of mezzotint engraving. In this black and white version we can admire the light and shadow effects he so masterfully commands.

Right margin added. Left margin supported behind. Margins have some very small repaired tears, none of them reaching image. There are some other traces of age and use, none of which are detrimental. We have acknowledged small blemishes by adjusting our price accordingly.

"The Barn Door"

Mzzotinto engraving. Printed in color and hand-finished.

Engraver: William Ward (1766-1826)

Painter: George Morland (1763-1804)

Publisher: T. Simpson. London, dated 1792

Rustic scene, typical for George Morland. albeit he goes slightly into erotic happenings. A farm boy catches and embraces the milk maid from behind. Her welcoming smile is suggesting only flimsy objection as he reaches unscrupulously for her bosom, while the stable help is watching the forward approach of his pal with openly displayed envy. From out the open barn door a cow observes the scene with little emotion, while two donkeys couldn't care less and a sow forages the ground contently.

The print has been mounted on cardboard. Right margin added. The print had obviously been framed and had decorated a wall space somewhere for some time.

By mounting a print on a cardboard it looses some value. Passing time and the fact that this print had been exposed to air and light for long has also diminished its value. Taking this into account we have discounted the value of this print. Since it is a genuine rural Morland scene it is, at this reduced price, a wonderful bargain

Color: Original hand coloring

Author: Jacob von Sandrart (1630-1708)

Engraver: Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724)

Published separately in Nuremberg, ca. 1697

Characteristics: Very rare map of North and South America. Seldom on the market. With decorative cartouche depicting native Americans in various poses. Map is embellished with indigenous animals of North America, Slave punishment, a battle scene of natives in Brazil, rich sail ship traffic on Atlantic and Pacific, a vague coast line idea of Australia. California is depicted as an island. This map is an early witness of J.B. Homann's mastership in map etching, which, in 1723, he had turned into a profitable business as he produced his famous atlas. Both, Sandrart and Homann were at the crest of German map makers as the center of gravity with regard to map making shifted from Amsterdam to Nuremberg and Augsburg.

Condition: Map is printed on nice thick paper. Left, top and right margins have been professionally added. This individually published map had been bound into a private map collection. On reverse side: No text print. Book joint for private binding. Minimal soiling in margins. Superb original hand coloring.

Original hand-coloring

Published sur blanc in "La Caricature" Pl. 299-300

Delteil XX, Nr. 65

The famous satirist Honoré Daumier is well known for his acrimonious sense of humor. The story behind this masterpiece of Daumier's early work: Daumier has Georges Mouton de Lobau (1770-1838), General and Marshall of France, marching in a cortege in a posture and conduct of "Here I come!" His arrival announced by a drummer and followed by subordinates carrying the insignia of the apothecary guild. Mouton was a member of the French Chamber of Deputies since 1828. He played an important role within the liberal opposition. King Louis-Philippe appointed him to be the Commanding General of the National Guard. Mouton became famous for having ordered the fire department of Paris to use their water hoses to disperse the outraged masses protesting the government action on Place Vendôme on May 12, 1831. On June 27, 1833 the King appointed him Marshall and Pair de France in return for this invention to control rebellious subjects.

Daumier took this happening and Mouton's "invention" for a good reason to allude to the use of fire hoses by drawing Prince Lancelot de Tricanule with the enema (clyster) syringe being carried in the cortege.

Light general age toning. Hardly visible light spots from mounting in the two upper corners. Splendid original hand coloring.
