A large set of manuscript maps and coast views drawn by Antonio Gonzales aboard the famous Spanish exploration ship Descurbierta Discovery during exploration journeys from to The corvette Descurbierta is famous for being one of the two ships with the Atrevida of the Malaspina's expedition , and , the most important voyage of discovery dispatched by Spain in the 18th century.
Alessandro Malaspina , under a Spanish royal commission, undertook his voyage around the world to increase geographic and scientific knowledge in general: inspired by Cooks and La Perouses voyages, Malaspinas expedition counted numerous scientists aboard, and was conducted in a highly scientific manner.
The second purpose of the expedition was to check on the status of Spain's vast empire, especially along the west coast of North America, where the Russians and the British were expanding their influence.

Gonzales was stationed at the corvette for at least 6 years. His personal file is at the Spanish navy central archives. Those maps and views are totally unknown and there is no recorded publication for the details of these campaigns, a continuation of Malaspina expedition round the world. It proves that the Spanish continued their scientific and cartographic exploration with the Descurbierta. The quality of the manuscript is great, giving lot of local details of the coasts visited.

Calligraphic text with cursive writing in red ink, black and gold in a frame of double red nets, frontispiece on double p. Binding and paper make it possible to date this manuscript of the second half of the eighteenth century. The cursive calligraphy used by the script is very neat and finely executed, with three inks: black, red and gold, the last shade having turned green with time.
The book is divided into six chapters, of 15, 21 and 23 lines, on the virtue of the prayer on the Prophet Mohammad. The titles of each chapter are written in red ink or gold, followed by the "Bismillah" sentence placed at the beginning of the suras of the Koran, meaning "In the name of God" in a larger calligraphy. The manuscript begins with the last four suras of the Qur'an, the Amsa al-Hsnat, followed by an introduction and a prayer.
A superb frontispiece on double page adorns pages 5 and 6, executed in black ink on a red background in polychrome frames. The one on the right, decorated with five arches in the margins, gives the name of Allah, the Prophet and his four caliphs; the one on the left indicates the name of the manuscript and its author "Abi Abdallah Hashim ibn Abdulaziz al-Mohammadi al-Shafei".
The first colophon, giving the end of the first chapter, is calligraphed in red ink in a banner. The other three colophons, executed in a serrated triangle, announce the end of each chapter and repeat the name of the author. The text ends with the poem "Qasida", to the glory of the Prophet. The analysis of the document and the use of the term "Shafei" suggests that its author was probably one of the imams of the school of jurisprudence of Sunni Islam "Shafiism", one of four schools madhhab of jurisprudence of Sunni Islam, based on the teaching of Imam Al-Shafii and his followers.

Avec les pays, provinces et citez et les merveilleuses et diverses creatures qui sont dedans Paris, [Lotrian], [circa Selon Murray, c'est le seul exemplaire connu de cet ouvrage de cosmographie.
Scarce copy of this popular geographical work consisting of a medieval collection of geography, astronomy and other physical sciences, a text that has circulated in the form of verse and prose since the 13th century. The work is attributed to Gautier de Metz, French poet and priest who produced it around , based on the Medieval Latin text "Imago mundi" by Honorius Inclusus. Gautier's poem is one of the many "encyclopedic" medieval works that describe creation, geography and astronomy with factual and imaginary passages.
Monsters, treasures and distant lands are evoked in this pseudo-scientific poem, which has been translated into several languages during the Middle Ages, and beautifully illustrated in numerous manuscripts. The poem "Mappemonde", attributed to Gautier de Metz, was probably transformed into prose by Maistre Gossouin in This edition reproduces that of due Cailant, but with some additions at the end. A similar copy is present in the collections of the NY public library. Provenance: from the library of Ferdinand Columbus ex-libris, "Colombina Biblioteca" , then from Baron Pichon "bought in " with his ex-libris in red leather on the front, then Charles Fairfax Murray with shelf "" on the back of the cover.
According to Murray, this is the only known copy of this edition. Ferdinand Columbus , son of the discoverer of the New World, accompanied his father during his fourth voyage to America between After his death, he returned to Spain, then traveled all over Europe and set up a library of more than 15, books. He seems to have had a particular interest for the editions of the Image du Monde. This book, and others such as Imago Mundi by Pierre d'Ailly, inspired his father's first discovery plans. Ferdinand's library was entrusted to the library of St. Paul's Cathedral in Seville.
During the 16th and 17th centuries the library, like other Renaissance libraries, was neglected. Thus, when the library was inventoried in , its contents had decreased to volumes. The books of the Ferdinand Columbus Library are extremely rare on the market. According to our research, no other volume of the Colombina Biblioteca" has been sold in auction for the last fifty years.

Provenance: Ducis Montebello armorial bookplate. Versailles, le 24 avril Brochage d'origine maintenu par un ruban de soie bleu. The "Barbary corsairs" of the Mediterranean represented a real scourge for maritime traffic until the 19th century, capturing thousands of ships, attacking coastal towns and supplying slave traffic with captured crews.
Although the attacks of the Barbary pirates peaked in the early mid-seventeenth century, they remained in the middle of the 18th century a constant threat to maritime traffic. Thus, the French, Spanish and Italian fleets still regularly carry out retaliation or diplomacy missions to local rulers of Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli, sponsors or accomplices of privateers of the North African coasts.
In this memoire, King Louis XV sets the framework for a mission sent to the Pasha of Tripoli in April to stop attacks and looting of French ships. Following the bombing of Tripoli by the French in July against the city of Tripoli, the Treaty of 9 June is supposed to protect French ships from the acts of piracy of Tripolitans. However, for the past three years, the corsairs of Tripoli have engaged in aggression and looting against French ships and crews: "All the French captains who had the misfortune to meet at sea corsairs of Tripoli were exposed to be removed all their effects and provisions which were in the propriety of these corsairs, and to be abused, some even received the bastarding at the risk of their life, and it was not possible to give up the navigation to the violence of the Tripolitans any longer ".
Despite various diplomatic actions, these acts of piracy have not ceased. King Louis XV therefore decided to send a squadron in front of Tripoli to get Pacha the restoration of the treaty, financial compensation and the punishment of corsairs having been identified. Before the arrival of this fleet, the captain of Revest is sent to deliver to the Pacha the King's courier detailing the damage caused by the corsairs and the requirements of the French sovereign.
The King requires the Pasha to punish those suffering the same treatment they have done to the French, to have all the French captains compensated for the looting done to them, and to effectively prevent their safety for the future, by adding to the treaty of an article that barely pronounced death against the "Rais" who will dare to plunder or insult a French ship in any way whatsoever ". The king also demands "the heads of the principal culprits, namely of a French renegade named Sicard, who is the author of thieves of the Tripolitans" and he adds to his letter to the Pacha the list of "Rais" to be punished.
In addition, he sets the amount of the required indemnity at between 5 and 6, sequins. And so that his demands are satisfied, the king specifies that "the captain de Revest will not hide from the Pasha that he must be immediately followed by several vessels of strength designed to support the just pretensions of his majesty SL, Half sheep of the time, paper on board with floral motifs and morocco reinforcements and wooden pegs: homemade binding made on board a ship using available materials, including fragments of nautical charts and handwritten navigation notes.
Amazing handwritten instruction manual of a French naval officer, made and bound on board a ship at the beginning of the American Revolutionary War, and used and completed during his career. In , the French navy was fully engaged in the North American conflict in which it played a decisive role facing the British fleet.
Its power is based on ships and modern artillery and on the quality of the training of its officers and crew. This handbook, an astonishing original document of which we have found no equivalents, brings together the sum of the technical, practical and scientific knowledge that an officer of the "Royale" had to acquire: astronomy, mathematics, tides, cartography, latitude and longitude, use of the compass and navigation instruments Its owner, who indicates on the title his initials and his rank: "Sieur P Also, its appearance and the materials used for its manufacture reveal the work of a sailboat or shoemaker rather than a bookbinder!
The book is abundantly illustrated with hundreds of drawings and shems, most watercolored, including 22 at full-page, plus 6 folding plates, all perfectly drawn: astronomical diagrams, diagrams, instruments including a superb armillary sphere and 3 maps, including 2 of Brest area and 1 of the Mediterranean. The writing of the set, very legible, is by the same hand and chapter headers are mostly decorated. The list of the officer's student names indicates the places of their birth. There are some names of families of sailors known as "La Touche", "Audibert" Precious maritime document of great historical interest, original object unique in its kind in its design and realization.
Derniers embarquements. Mai Novembre Jaubert et de ses camarades sur les pontons de Plymouth, et dans la terrible prison de Dartmoor. Bonne orthographe. Style et orthographe corrects. Sagit-il du commandant Roger, commandant le Ponton Le Caton? Chomel , avec notes de Louis Garneray, Paris, Nepveu, Nouveaux embarquements. Mai novembre Original Velum binding. A precious personal "logbook" of a Marseilles sailor covering a period of forty years, recounting his successive embarkations to the trade and in the "Royale", from until his capture on November 3, , his detention on the pontoons and at the Dartmoor Prison until May 27, , and his last embarkations from June to November 5, document of considerable value for the knowledge of the maritime environment of the end of the 18th century, the heavy traffic in the Mediterranean and beyond, with first-hand accounts of the battles of Aboukir and Trafalgar and the lives of French sailors trapped on British pontoons.
The manuscript includes: Part One: From the first embarkation to Trafalgar ; Part two: Captivity on the pontoons and at Dartmoor ; Third part: freedom refound. Latest boarding. May November First part: from the first embarkation to Trafalgar : it includes 31 embarkations, with a text indicating, for each ship, the detailed account of the navigation and a watercolor representing it.
These navigations "to trade", all in the Mediterranean, except two in the Antilles, become from the 18th embarkation squadron sailing in the service of the King, the Republic, then the Emperor, whose first, after a fight against the English, ends with desertion and imprisonment. The reading of this picturesque and poignant document leaves the impression of a whole life devoted to action: Scarcely arrived and despite all the vicissitudes, Jaubert immediately seeks another ship, as if the ground burns his feet; attitude that is not unlike that of the illustrious Duguay Trouin.
The adventures experienced by Jaubert are innumerable: he finds himself a stowaway on an Italian brigantine; led the Pasha of Constantinople to Crete, the Grand Vizier of Crete to Constantinople, and Greek women from island to island; brings from Algiers to Marseille French slaves captured in Corfu; Loads of Calamata figs, oranges, butter, cheese and wax cattle Skyros?
This first part, hectic, ends in , after the 38th navigation, by incarceration "handcuffs and chain neck" Fort Saint-Nicolas of Marseille, then Toulon. It is illustrated with 31 watercolors, representing with remarkable precision the hulls and rigging of tartanes, boats, brigs, corvettes, bombards, chebecks, seneaux, vessels, brigantines, polacres, boulichous, frigates, schooners, etc It is therefore possible that Degun, talented watercolorist, detained himself on the Ganges, drew the ships that his companion of misfortune described him from preserved notes of his navigations.
The quality of these watercolors is close to the work of the portraitists of ships like "Roux" of Marseille. The variety of ships of all origins on which Jaubert resides constitutes a remarkable source of information on maritime traffic of the time in the Mediterranean, and actors: French, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Arab Jaubert also relates his enlistment on several ships of the "Royal", including the ship Scipio which participates in the Battle of Aboukir in figure the list of French squadron ships.
After various embarkations to trade, our sailor will join the French Navy in Jaubert is named gabier of hune on the ship The Formidable, armed with 80 guns, which leaves for Gibraltar to the Antilles, in the squadron of Admiral Villeneuve. His account relates various adventures of sea and gives the detail of the victorious military operations of the Admiral against the English in Martinique, then in Guadeloupe, as well as made catches.
On the return from Guadeloupe, off the Azores, the ship "takes an English marching ship, a a corsair ditto with a catch of a Spanish merchant ship coming from India loaded with dry goods of the 'Indies and of eight million silver coins we took in tow and the same evening we burn the merchant ship taken English and the privateer who had made the Spanish catch End of June After taking part in the Cape Finisterre naval battle of July 22, , the Formidable October 20 leaves Cadiz and participates in the battle of Trafalgar October 21, which he manages to escape, despite many damage.
The story of the Battle of Trafalgar is extremely rich and provides details of both the course of action and the reasons for the success of the English fleet. It ends with the following remark: "I will not forget to tell you that before starting the last fight, General Dumanoir told us:" let's go and fight my children I will take you to a place where you will be well rested.
He was very right because I am in prison in my 9th year without knowing when I will come out. Thus, on the 3rd of November, Jaubert and all the crew of the Formidable were taken prisoner by the English, and conducted on the pontoon "The Generous" at Plymouth. Following are the detailed tables of the French, Spanish and English fleets with their armament. In addition, an ink wash titled "The Formidable taken by the ship Namur November 4, " illustrates the story of the battle.
This first part is of a playful style, popular, and without orthographic concern. It is obviously from Jaubert's hand. Part 2: Captivity on the pontoons and Dartmoor The stories that follow relate to the conditions of J. Jaubert and his comrades on the Plymouth Pontoons and in the terrible Dartmoor Prison. They are illustrated with 3 gouaches representing, first, the three pontoons where Jean Jaubert was a prisoner "The pontoon the generous Captain Lanyon Remained 9 months The pontoon the hector captain The thorn remained 65 months The pontoon the ganges captain the red remained for 27 months " , the second" the Neptune pontoon [The Neptune], Captain Lorence, ", and the last the" Dartmoor prison of war the 25 of May "or, at the foot of the page" the prison of French dartimor guarded by the commander Kotgrave ".
The style and the spelling being more chastised, it is probable that a companion assisted Jaubert in his writing. November 16, " , sometimes is the spokesperson of all the prisoners of the pontoons, in a classic style, and even literary, with an excellent spelling 2, 4, 5. He goes so far as to compose a poem on the extreme harshness of the conditions of detention 3 , and write a play rather a skit narrating the arrival of the English Roger perhaps the commander of the pontoon " The Cato " in Hell.
This second part constitutes a precious sum of information on the conditions of detention and the life of the French sailors on the pontoons. There are a number of stories about pontoons, sometimes written in a novelistic way, and for the most part published after , the oldest probably being "Sergeant Flavigny's story, or ten years of my captivity on the English pontoons" by L. Chomel , with notes by Louis Garneray, Paris, Nepveu, However, this journal is to our knowledge the only example of manuscript redirected by a prisoner on the spot: As on every ship, the sailors help each other and participate together in the meager distractions of the edge.
Jaubert knows how to tell, Degun draws for him; and a more educated fellow-prisoner writes for him when it is necessary to testify, from his own experience, of the general condition of the prisoners of the English pontoons. Third part: refound freedom. New embarkments. May - November These watercolors are distinguished by the absolute accuracy of the design of the rigging. None of them are signed. The document ends with the story of a quarantine due to the plague, it is likely that the sailor is succumbing to this epidemic Plague epidemic of , , which extended from the Middle East to the Maghreb.
The author, who rightly criticizes the surgeons who contested the epidemic, while the deaths of porter-faix dockers added to those of the sailors, suggests his role during this period: "On the 2nd, eve of St. Black card stock, photographs in transparent individual pockets. A collection of 33 original silver prints of the planet Mars taken by American spacecrafts Mariner 6, 7 and 9 between and Mars has attracted the attention of humanity.
In Mesopotamia, in China, they go back more than years. With the appearance of the first astronomical glasses, it is the details that we began to distinguish on the surface of the fourth planet of our solar system. Astronomers believe they see a world similar to the earth: Ice caps, continents, oceans, changing vegetation with the seasons At the end of the 19th century, the Italian Giovanni Virginio Shiaparelli distinguishes straight lines resembling canals and he mapped them in Continuing his work, the American Percival Lowel , defends the theory of artificial Martian channels.
Lowell was convinced of the existence of Martians fighting the drought and desertification of their planet. In the early s, these beliefs are outdated, however the scientific world still considers the possibility of a plant life on the red planet. The exploration missions of the American Mariner missions will revolutionize our knowledge of Mars. The Mariner program is a series of NASA missions that aim to send spacecrafts to study the three inner planets of the solar system, the closest from the Earth.
Ten spacecrafts, from Mariner 1 to Mariner 10, are launched between and as appropriate to Mars, Venus and Mercury. The present collection includes 5 photographs taken by Mariner 6, 7 by Mariner 7 and 21 by Mariner 9. On July 14 and 15, , Mariner 4 flew over Mars and made the first 22 images of the planet. These images put an end to many theories of the time by revealing a more lunar than terrestrial surface, no expanse of water and a weak atmosphere.
Launched on February 24, , Mariner 6 is the second mission to reach Mars. She managed to take 75 pictures of Mars during her flyover. Mariner 7, launched March 27, , closely followed Mariner 6, by fulfilling the same objectives. Despite technical problems during her trip, the spacecraft even provides more scientific data than her partner. Mariner 9 is launched on May 30, Its mission is to complete the studies and measurements made by the previous couple, while being the first spacecraft to orbit a planet other than Earth, allowing a long study mission.
Mariner takes photos of the surface with surprising clarity, resolution reaching 1 kilometer. Using her instruments UV, IR, IR radiometer and two cameras , she discovers striking elements of Martian geography such as Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in the solar system, and the huge canyon that will be named Valles Marineris, in honor of the success of the mission. She allowed to build the vertical profile of its atmosphere. Mariner 9 also analyzed the two natural satellites of Mars, Phobos and Deimos.
Our shots of Mariner 6 and 7 include views of the entire planet as well as images of the surface and its many impact craters. The ones of Mariner 9 reveals all of its geography: its mountain ranges, valleys, volcanoes, plains, poles On the back of each shot are printed: the date of the shooting, the name of the spaceship, the distance, the scale and a detailed description of the geographical area. Despite its aridity unveiled by these images, interest in the red planet has only grown for 50 years. To the spaceships in orbit have succeeded the rovers exploring its surface, and now comes the concrete realization the project of a human exploration of Mars.
