Jollain Tresor Des Cartes Geographiques Des Principaux Estats De L Univers.
Rare atlas by Jollain with engraved title and 38 engraved maps. This small atlas of 38 maps is known by several publisher names. The first edition that is recorded, is that of Jean Boisseau in 1643. The maps of this atlas are faithful copies of the "Atlas Minor" of Mercator-Hondius of 1628, this atlas was copied by N. Picart (1657-59). The same edition exists with Jollain's address. Jollain finally reissued the atlas in 1667 with some modifications. The scales are most often removed (because too inaccurate) and replaced by the mention of "excudit" by Jollain and sometimes the date of 1667. The titles of Russia and Muscovy were interchanged.

Thibault, Girard Academie de l`Espée.
Engraved title and portrait, nine full page engraved plates with coats of arms and 46 (45 of them are double page) fine engraved plates. All these engravings are exceptional finely hand colored throughout by a later hand. 2 unnumbered pages, 276 separate paginated pages; the decorative and beautiful binding in brown modern marbled calf; the covers with their inner and outer edges richly stamped and gilt, spine also gilt and bound in 6 compartments. Imperial folio. The 'Academie de l'Espée' is overall the most famous fencing book with highly decorative fine engraved plates ever published. It was printed and published by the brothers B. & A. Elzevir in Leiden 1628. This enormous book is illustrated with an engraved title, one portrait, 9 plates of coats of arms and 46 (of which 45 are double page) fine engraved plates of fencing scenes by the famous Dutch engravers Crispin de Pass, J. Gilli, Wilhelm J. Delff, Crispian Quebon and others. All plates in this book (including the title, portrait and coat of arms) are finely hand colored by a later hand. The hand coloring is executed in absolute accuracy and delicate throughout. The fine engraved details of the various fencing scenes are hand colored with much care and stand out one of a kind in their beauty. 'This splendid equipped masterwork of typography is a curiosity as a manual of the art of fencing, which tries to overcall the meshed rules of the Spanish fencing school. Its worth for the history of the art of fencing is based on that, that it shows hundreds scenes of fencing pairs, which are missing illustrations in the Spanish fencing books of that period' (translated from the German reference Lipperheide 2960).
