Nécessité d'une forte population. La révocation de l'Edit de Nantes aurait fait passer en Hollande nombre de familles françaises et aurait été un facteur de son essor démographique' (INED).This first Dutch edition is much more extensive than the original French edition as Luzac added large numbers of documents to the text to support the thesis developped therein.

Jan Wagenaar (Amsterdam, 28 oktober 1709 - Amsterdam, 1 maart 1773) is een Nederlands geschiedschrijver. Jan Wagenaar was de zoon van een schoenmaker. Klerk geworden op een koopmanskantoor, wijdde hij zijn vrije tijd aan de bestudering der natuurkunde. Op uitnodiging van de uitgever schreef hij De Tegenwoordige Staat van Utrecht. Hierdoor kreeg hij aardigheid in de beoefening der Vaderlandse Geschiedenis. In 1749 verscheen van hem het eerste deel der Vaderlandsche Historie, die in 1759 was gevorderd tot het twintigste deel. Eerst bij dit deel gaf Wagenaar zich als de schrijver op, hoewel men reeds lang vermoedde, dat hij de auteur was. De regering van Amsterdam benoemde hem in 1756 tot stadhistorieschrijver, waarvoor hem toegang in de archieven werd gegeven. In 1768 verschijnt dan AMSTERDAM, IN ZYNE OPKOMST, AANWAS, GESCHIEDENISSEN, VOORREGTEN, KOOPHANDEL, GEBOUWEN, KERKENSTAAT, SCHOOLEN, SCHUTTERYE, GILDEN EN REGEERINGE, etc. (13 delen). In zijn werken maakt Wagenaar gebruik van allerlei bronnen geeft hij naast politieke geschiedenis, ook kerkgeschiedenis en economische geschiedenis weer. Zijn voorstelling is niet onpartijdig, vooral Staatsgezinden worden door hem verdedigd. Bilderdijk bestreed zijn geschiedopvatting. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Hardcover.

His observations first appeared in English in 1615 and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. He has been called the first 'classical tourist' of England.

About this Item: Petrus Conradi, Harlingen, by Volkert van der Plaats, 1782-, Amsterdam and Harlingen, 1783. Condition: A very good copy. Four volumes in one, quarto, each volume with title-page printed in black and red and engraved title-vignette, engraved allegorical frontispiece, 4 folding charts, and 7 folding plates; recent tan calf, gilt. First edition of this important description of Batavia and its history, particularly significant regarding the trade of the VOC in the East Indies. The work includes several beautiful views of vessels at Batavia and the Cape of Good Hope, as well as attractive and important maps of the city and the island of Java. Five of the fine plates are made after drawings by Johannes Rach ("Het gouvernement te Batavia", "de Markt te Batavia", "De Diestpoort te Batavia", "'t Kasteel te Batavia" and a view depicting the harbour of Batavia). There is also a large and informative open plan of Batavia by A. van Krevelt.The anonymous author of this extensive descriptive work received most of his information directly from high officials of the VOC residing in Batavia, and it includes fascinating information on the trade in the East Indies. The city was the capital of the Netherlands Indies, and had been the site of a VOC post from 1610, becoming the regional headquarters in 1619. It was constructed on the model of a Dutch city, complete with canals and walls to resist attack from Mataram, and much of the surrounding countryside was cleared of its inhabitants to create a kind of cordon sanitaire (Cribb, Historical dictionary of Indonesia, p.49-50).The bookseller-publisher Petrus Conradi published several similar works, including a short history of the VOC Nederlandsche reizen (1784-87). A French edition was announced but appears not to have been published. There was a second edition using the same plates in 1799, and a translation into German of 1785-86. This work is now of some rarity: the Mitchell Library has all four volumes, while the National Library of Australia appears to have the first volume only. Seller Inventory # 3502578

About this Item: Amsterdam: Reinier & Josua Ottens, 1745., 1745. Folio. (22 2/8 x 14 inches). Title-page printed in red and black with engraved vignette. Engraved dedication leaf, and 32 fine double-page, and or folding, engraved maps with contemporary hand-color in outline ("Register" and plate one, the double-hemisphere world map loose). Contemporary maroon backed speckled paper boards (extremely worn). AN ENTIRELY UNSOPHISTICATED AND INTERNALLY FINE COPY of the first Dutch edition of this magnificent sea atlas, dedicated to the Dutch East India Company, first published in French Louis Renard as the "Atlas de la Navigation" in Amsterdam in 1715. He printed the maps from the plates used by Frederik de Wit for his sea-atlas, corrected them and substituted his name for de Wit's. The Otten brothers published another French edition, also in Amsterdam in 1739, with their imprint on the title-page, but the maps still signed by Renard. This their Dutch edition of 1745 has new text and removes Renard's name from the maps. In addition to improving nearly all the plates by adding place names and altering coast lines, shoals, and soundings this edition contains six new maps, including two world maps, the most significant of which is by Edmund Halley which shows Isogones illustrating his discoveries concerning gravitational forces. The others are another world map, Arctic and Antarctic projections, and a map of the postal routes of Europe. Koeman IV, p. 432-435; Phillips, Atlases, 601. Catalogued by Kate Hunter.
