ΟΡΟΙ ΔΗΜΟΠΡΑΣΙΩΝ Όλοι οι λαχνοί περιγράφονται προσεκτικά και πωλούνται ως γνήσιοι και αυθεντικοί εκτός αν περιγράφονται άλλως. Ο αγοραστής μπορεί να απορρίψει το λαχνό και να τον επιστρέψει εντός 7 ημερών (ημερομηνία σφραγίδας ταχυδρομείου) απο την λήξη της δημοπρασίας, αν αποδείξει ότι δεν είναι γνήσιος ή ότι περιγράφηκε λανθασμένα. Οι λαχνοί πρέπει να επιστρέφονται όπως παραλήφθηκαν αρχικά, χωρίς καμμία διαφοροποίηση. Λαχνοί που εξετάσθηκαν προηγουμένως από τους υποψηφίους αγοραστές δεν επιστρέφονται. Επίσης δεν επιστρέφονται λαχνοί που αγοράσθηκαν στην Αίθουσα μετά την έξοδο των αγοραστών από αυτή. Οι αγοραστές δεν έχουν το δικαίωμα επιστροφής μικτών λαχνών, συλλογών, λαχνών που έχουν ελαττώματα σε μικtροαξίες, καθώς και φωτογραφημένων στον κατάλογο λαχνών, για ελαττώματα ορατά στη φωτογραφία (κεντράρισμα, περιθώρια, οδόνττωση). Όταν η αξία του λαχνού είναι στη σφραγίδα και όχι στο γραμματόσημο, ο λαχνός δεν μπορεί να επιστραφεί για ελάττωμα του γραμματοσήμου. Κάθε λαχνός περιέρχεται στον πλειοδότη, που προσφέρει την υψηλότερη τιμή. Σε περίπτωση ίσων ταχυδρομικών προσφορών, πλειοδότης θεωρείται αυτός που η προσφορά του έφθασε πρώτη στα Γραφεία μας. Τηλεφωνικές εντολές αγοράς γίνονται δεκτές από γνωστούς πελάτες, πρέπει όμως να επικυρωθούν γραπτώς. Πριν από την έναρξη της πωλήσεως ή την ημέρα της δημοπρασίας (για γραπτές προσφορές), η Εταιρία έχει το δικαίωμα να αποσύρει λαχνούς, να διαχωρίσει λαχνούς σε δύο ή περισσότερα μέρη ή να συνενώσει δύο ή περισσότερους λαχνούς. Μεγάλοι λαχνοί μπορεί να μην μεταφερθούν για viewing στην Αθήνα ή να μεταφερθούν κατ’επιλογή. Viewing λαχνών, που δεν μεταφέρονται στην Αθήνα, μπορεί να γίνει στα γραφεία στη Θεσσαλονίκη. Προσφορές γίνονται δεκτές έως 2 ώρες πριν από την έναρξη της δημοπρασίας. Η πληρωμή πρέπει να γίνεται αμέσως μετά το τέλος της δημοπρασίας στην Αίθουσα ή εντός 10 ημερών από την παραλαβή των λαχνών ή του τιμολογίου (για πελάτες Εξωτερικού). Σε αγοραστές εντός Ελλάδος οι λαχνοί αποστέλλονται επί αντικαταβολή και σε γνωστούς πελάτες χωρίς προπληρωμή, για πληρωμή αμέσως μετά την παραλαβή των λαχνών. Αν η πληρωμή καθυστερήσει πέραν των 10 ημερών, η Εταιρία διατηρεί το δικαίωμα να επιβαρύνει το λογαριασμό με το νόμιμο επιτόκιο. Η κυριότητα των λαχνών παραμένει στον πωλητή, μέχρις ότου αποπληρωθεί ο λογαριασμός. Συμμετοχή αγοραστού στη δημοπρασία μπορεί να αποκλεισθεί, αν κατά την κρίση του πωλητού, ο αγοραστής δεν εκπληρώνει τους όρους της καλής πίστεως. Η ταχυδρόμηση των λαχνών ή του τιμολογίου γίνεται στην διεύθυνση, που φαίνεται στο έντυπο προσφορών. Τα έξοδα αποστολής βαρύνουν τον αγοραστή. Η απόδειξη παραλαβής “Συστημένου” του Ταχυδρομείου αποτελεί για την Εταιρία και απόδειξη παραλαβής του υλικού από τον αγοραστή. Στην τιμή κατακυρώσεως προστίθεται ποσοστό 18% για προμήθειά μας και επί πλέον ο αναλογών ΦΠΑ επί της προμήθειάς μας. Όλες οι τιμές στόν κατάλογο είναι σε ΕΥΡΩ. Απούλητοι λαχνοί με τιμή εκκίνησης “OFFER” δεν διατίθενται προς πώληση μετά τη λήξη της δημοπρασίας. Η τιμή πώλησης των λαχνών με την ένδειξη “OFFER” ορίζεται από το ποσό της προσφοράς, με κατοχύρωση του λαχνού στην υψηλότερη. Ο πλειοδότης (είτε βρίσκεται στην Αίθουσα, είτε έχει καταθέσει την προσφορά του μέσω τηλεφώνου/email) είναι υπεύθυνος για την εξόφληση του τιμολογίου, εκτός αν έχει συνεννοηθεί γραπτώς ειδάλλως με την Εταιρία. Οποιοσδήποτε λαμβάνει μέρος στη δημοπρασία είναι γνώστης των προαναφερομένων όρων και τους αποδέχεται πλήρως. Οποιαδήποτε διαφωνία μεταξύ των συμβαλλομένων μερών τίθεται στην κρίση και δικαιοδοσία του αρμοδίου Δικαστηρίου Θεσσαλονίκης. 5% επιπλέον Invaluable.com προμήθεια επί της τιμής κατοχύρωσης για κάθε κατοχύρωση λαχνού μέσω της πλατφόρμας Invaluable.com.

First edition, 8vo (16x10cm), pp.180. Aldine anchor on title, modern leather over boards and preserved in fine modern box. Complete. Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription on title, five last pages restored with defects, otherwise very good. The book had been published by Antonio Manuzio, son of Aldus, in 1543 and most of the printed copies destroyed in a fire. A second edition in 1545 followed. The Aldine Press had edited very few travel accounts. This early 16th century collection of travel accounts in the Levant contains the voyages of Giosafat Barbaro (in Tana - 1436 and in Persia through the Black Sea - 1471), of Ambrogio Contarini (in Persia again through the Black Sea in 1473-77) and of Luigi Roncinotto (in Persia and India in 1529). It also includes Rambetti’s account of Sultan’s campaign of 1538 against Diu. Barbaro travelled in Tana , which was still a Venetian colony in the sea of Azov, before the fall of Constantinople. Contarini was a Venetian Ambassador to Huzun Hasan. He tried to reach him in Tabriz through Pontos area in 1473 and 1477. All these accounts are unique testimonies for the Levant. VERY RARE Atabey 761, Not in Blackmer.

Bochart Samuel, “Geographiae Sacrae”, Cadomi (Caen) Cardonelle, 1651. Second edition of the the most influential geographical work of the 17th century. Folio (35x24cm), [26]p.,864p.,[88]. Engraved title, in its back there is a printed dedication, in Greek, to Bochard by Stephanos (a Greek monk). Complete with 4 double page plates of maps containing all Bochart’s original 13 maps. Bochart (1599-1667) was a famous Protestant Theologian and Geographer of the 17th century. His Sacred Geography is the first systematic effort to approach the ancient geography of the Bible, by attempting to identify the actual position of the Biblical places. His original manuscript (now in BNF) was written in the 1630s and contained 13 maps. He lived in Caen (Normandy) and there he managed to publish his work after 10 years of efforts. The result was an impressive printing achievement, as five alphabets (Latin, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew and Ethiopian) had been used in a single publication for the first time in history. Due to high printing costs, he embedded his 13 maps in just 4 plates. The success was remarkable and the work was reissued in a second revised edition in 1651, while luxurious editions (with 13 plates) followed in 1692 and 1707 after the death of Bochart. Contemporary full calf, richly gilt, slightly rubbed at corners of spine and front join. Very light marginal waterstains in few pages. A clean and very good copy. Bochard’s master work on Sacred Geography in its second edition with the Greek dedication on back of the title (not in the first edition), a proof of the success of the work in contemporary circles.

Obviously a Napoleonic made to order combination of five, mostly extremely rare, publications on the Levant, all dealing with the trade route to India, via the Levant and demonstrate French state policy to control the key positions of this road. After the Revolution the project started to be implemented by Napoleon. In summer 1797 the Ionian islands had been occupied and incorporated to France by November, as departments de Corcire (Kerkyra), Ithaque (Kefalonia, Lefkada etc) and mer Egee (Zakynthos and Kithira). The Arbois were French officers of the Levant army in the Ionian Islands and their detailed description of the islands, obviously based on official documents and their eyewitness account, its unique, as French rule lasted only one year. Delpuech-Comeiras, the writer of the other above mentioned work, was the first Commissioner General in Kerkira. Malta had been occupied by Napoleon in his way to Egypt and Mimaut (1773-1837), a French diplomat was later consul in Egypt. But the French naval disaster at Aboukir, in August 1798 destroyed any French hope to open a trade route to India. After all these publications on trade via the Levant with India, the control and descriptions of key positions along this road were useless. So it could be assumed that, the assemblage in one volume of the five works, had been made in summer 1798 to boost Napoleonic invasion to Egypt. It is demonstrated that Napoleon had a very organized propaganda and used particularly the publications. A historical piece. None of the five books on Atabey or Blackmer.

Unbound but attached, in French paper with watermark c.1810, text clean overall very good condition. Together With: Anonymous, MANUSCRIPT (a sea provisions list for the French fleet of the Levant). FOLIO, 36X22cm, pp.12. Unbound but attached in French blue paper with watermark dated 1804, text clean overall very good condition. [Toulon ?] c.1815-1817. The SEA PILOT is signed by Captain A. Regnard, capitaine de l’Estefette (French war schooner, attached permanently to the French Levant fleet, since 1817) and is addressed to Captain Desfresne, his superior, capitaine de la fregate du Roi, l’Atalante (a war frigate) which obviously, joined that time the Levant fleet. It contains the following chapters: “Notes sur la navigation de l Archipel Nord”, “Regles generals”, “Route de Cerigo a Smyrne”, “Route de Smyrne a Salonique”, “Route de Smyrne a Dardanelles”. After follows a detailed sea journey in the Aegean, which starts at Milos island, continues to Sifno and Serifo, after Siros, then Tinos and Mikonos, continuing via Venetico to Chios, then to Karaburnu in Anatolia and Mytilini, from there to Scopelos, after to Cavo d Oro, Mandry bay at Kea, after Poros, from there to Samos and back again to Milos. It is a fine sea pilot original route, full with marine details and topographical information. The Estafette was stationed in the Levant. She was present in Milos in spring 1820, and the statue of Venus of Milos, found in the island, was loaded on her board. The statue remained on board for 6 months before the arrival in France. Regnard was not her captain at that time, but just after this event. Estafette undertook hydrographical researches and charting of the Aegean Sea, still widely unknown at that time. It is obvious that her officers were experts in Aegean Sea waters. Especially the northern Archipelago which was still uncharted up to the 1820s. When the new ship Atalante arrived to join the Levant fleet, this navigational manual has been prepared for her captain. The detailed sea itinerary, at the second part of the manuscript, looks more as a sea patrol plan scheduled for a war. During the Greek Revolution, foreign war ships, especially French, were present in the Aegean for protecting the international trade. The Greeks often complained that these ships were breaking their embargo to the Ottoman ports, by allowing their supply via neutral cargo ships. A UNIQUE PIECE for the history of navigation in the Greek seas, full of precious information for the islands, ports and sea routes of travelling in the Aegean, in the early 19th century. The second manuscript is a list of the detailed necessary provisions for many ships (listed) of the French fleet, as well of some adjacent port facilities. It provides a very exact image of the needs of the French fleet in it’s winter port, specifically, ship by ship. All the war ships of the Levant squadron returned, in a regular basis, in their main ports for new supplies and repairs.

Contemporary full leather slightly rubbed, rebacked, inside fine. A very good copy.

Amsterdam P.Schenk [c.1685-1690]. Loose Folio 59x50cm, copper engraved map of Samos, with inset maps of Nicaria & Patmos. Contemporary fine colours, almost fine condition. A UNIQUE COMBINATION. One of the very rare travel accounts for the Aegean, being one of the very few early accounts ever written by a Greek, together with his separately printed map. Georgirenes was a leading Greek figure of 17th century. Born in Milos around 1635, he had spent 6 years of his early career in Athos before heading to Constantinople, when he met several Western officials and travellers there. He became Archibishop of Samos (1666-1671), he found refuge in Patmos monastery (1671-74) and finally he escaped to Europe to collect funds. He arrived to London, with the help of Lord Berkeley. Berkeley convinced him to write a book for the Aegean islands and Georgirenes followed that suggestion in an effort to raise funds for the construction of a Greek church in Soho, London. As most of the travel books of the time, the text had been accompanied by a map, but the financial shortages made impossible the engraving of the map. So the book had been issued without map and in an octavo format. A unique source for the Aegean islands. The plan for the Greek Church in London failed for several reasons, and Georgirenes was obliged to escape quickly from England in 1682, when his friends lost their power and he was facing a high chance to be imprisoned (Baron: From Samos to Soho, the Unorthodox Life of Joseph Georgirenes, Oxford 2017). Recent researches reveal that Georgirenes escaped to a Spanish territory, in Low Countries. There, around 1685, he sold the manuscript of his map to Peter Schenk (1660-1711, a German cartographer, active in Amsterdam since 1675, with tide connections with England) and finally left, around 1690, to South America. He is still alive in Buenos Aires in 1697 performing Baptisms. In the meanwhile, Schenk had been able to publish separately the map (most probably before 1689), with the financial support of the young prince Lebrecht von Anhalt, who covered the engraving of the map by Bernhard Georg Andermuller. The map of Samos was not a commercial success and it was separately printed only once. EXTREMELY RARE. The book is VERY RARE and one of the very few travel accounts written before the 19th century by a Greek. Atabey 489, Blackmer 672 (only the book without the map for both references). 34

He travelled a lot in Central Asia, an area almost unknown then and gives precious information. He had designed the first ever reliable map of this area and he had arranged to be separately published, by Senex, with Greek inscriptions, in England in 1732 (Tolias 29). Only one copy remained (in British Library) and the map has been exactly lithographed for this edition. The chaotic situation in Persia finally led him to England. His travel account remained manuscript. He had written also a story of Nadir Shah. A unique travel account by a skilled in trade and politics Greek of the 18th century. EXTREMELY RARE.

Roads, populations, trade, customs, architecture, everything careful noted. Of particular importance are the 9, mostly folded, lithographed nautical charts of several Macedonian ports and bays (OFTEN MISSING, but PRESENT here). These are the very first ever printed in Greek (and designed by a Greek, Shinas himself), for Macedonian coastline. Although Shinas, obviously took into consideration previous British Admiralty charts, he had also included information of the Greek navy first chartering, conducted in the 1880s (as the alterations from the contemporary British charts testified). For military reasons he had not included in the publication some main ports charts. EXTREMELY RARE.

[128], 171. Κείμενο στα Λατινικά, με παράλληλο πρωτότυπο κείμενο στα ελληνικά. Κομμένα άνω περιθώρια, κομμένο τμήμα σελ. [105] χωρίς απώλεια κειμένου. Δέσιμο 19ου αιώνα (πανί) με φθορές εξωτερικά. Ο Προκόπιος ο Καισαρεύς (500 - 565) ήταν ένας εξέχων Βυζαντινός λόγιος από την Παλαιστίνη. Ακολουθώντας ως γραμματέας τον στρατηγό Βελισάριο στους πολέμους του Ιουστινιανού, ο Προκόπιος συνέγραψε δύο κύρια ιστορικά έργα, ένα σχετικά με τους πολέμους της περιόδου 527 - 554 (Υπέρ των πολέμων λόγοι) και ένα σχετικά με το οικοδομικό έργο του Ιουστινιανού στην επικράτεια της αυτοκρατορίας (Περί Κτισμάτων). Η “Απόκρυφη Ιστορία” ή “Ανέκδοτα”, αποτελεί ένα ανατρεπτικό έργο, όπου ο Προκόπιος καταρρίπτει ριζικά την εικόνα που είχε σκιαγραφήσει για το αυτοκρατορικό ζεύγος και τον περίγυρο του στα άλλα του βιβλία, καταδεικνύοντας την διαφθορά του Ιουστινιανού, της Θεοδώρας, του Βελισαρίου και την αδιαντροπιά της Αντωνίνας.

LA QUOTIDIENNE, 20/12/1825, FOLIO, 36x24cm, 4p. complete, very good condition.Latest news from Greece describe the uncertain state of the country. The Egyptian campaign spreads terror among the Greeks. There are many complaints against the Greek fleet that allowed the Ottoman armies to be deployed in Morea. Several Greek military officers believe that the Greek fleet could and ought to stop them before the landing. But the fleet lacks money and supplies. From the other side, the Greek marine officers believe that they tried their best, saving Mesolongi twice, and that it was not possible to stop the Turkish invasion as the Turkish fleet was incomparably greater. Once again, signs of discord along the Greeks. The Government in Nafplio sent Fabvier, in Athens in an effort to control Gouras, but the French officer stopped in Megara to avoid an open confrontation with Gouras. More French philhellenes just arrived from Paris, including 27 officers, 2 generals and 2 doctors. Reybaud, who had provided a detailed report about the massacres in Tripolitsa by Kolokotronis in 1821, is among them. New supplies arrived from Europe for the Greeks including a machine to make canons, equipment for printing banknotes, detailed geographical maps, telescopes e.t.c. However, the Greeks need more canons and arms and not maps. The Egyptian army has 10000 Egyptians, 5000 Albanians and 1400 cavalries and this is the strongest army ever sent against the Greeks.

LUCINI Antonio Francesco/Negroponte Giovanni Battista, CANDIA Il Regno di Candia detto dal Antichi Creta... / Annibale Bentivogli... Gan Duca di Toscana... Gio. Batt. Negroponti / AF Lucini Fece”, [1645]. Unrecorded edition of Lucini’s map of Crete by Negroponte. An extremely rare separately printed map of Crete - Κρήτη, published around 1650-1660. The original map was prepared by A. F. Lucini, one of the most talented map makers and engravers in Italy in the 17th century, best known for his superb engravings in Sir R. Dudley’s “Arcano del Mar”. The map is accurate for the time, it follows the geographical outline of the island of Mercator and is decorated with three cartouches. The central title cartouche contains a thick text, providing accurate information of military and nautical interest, like the ports of the island, their capacity of warships, the fortifications, bays ets. It seems that the map meet the needs of a very critical phase of the Cretan war, with the operations centered around Chania. The right-hand cartouche contains the dedication text, with the map dedicated to Annibale Bentivogli (1606-1663), titular Archibishop of Thebae (Thiva) and ambassador of Pope to “Gran Duca di Toscana” (Ferdinando II de’ Medici). On lower part of the cartouche, is also noted the name of the publisher Giovanni Battista Negroponte, a publisher from Bologna active in ~1635-1660. The left cartouche depicts Archibishop’s ornaments, most probably the coats of arms of Annibale Bentivogli. Various short tears, creases, but the engraved area without losses. The map is attached on thick carton. An extremely rare piece. Only one other of the first edition has been tracked and published in Zacharaki’s catalogue under No.2119 and in Zacharakis C., “One Hundred Landmarks...”, 2018, under No.040. Comparing to this map, the current one preserves the upper right dedication cartouche and lacks the publication date and Florentine authorities licence at lower right part. We could propose that very close to 1652 and after resigning from the position of the Ambassador to Toscane, Bentivogli returned to Bolognia, his native city (always a Papal fief), and supported the reedition of the map by Negroponte. References: Zacharakis 2119, Zacharakis C., “One Hundred Landmarks...”, No.040. EXTREMELY RARE.

Light marginal water stain, few spotting, but overall in very good condition, almost fine for a chart obviously heavenly used at sea. Spanish navy started to conduct surveys in the Aegean in late 1780s.

It was the most advanced chart of the very early 19th century for the Greek seas. Galiano was killed in the famous naval battle of Trafalgar (October 1805) but the chart of the eastern Mediterranean was ready and published in Madrid under the Direction Hydrografica in early 1806. It is the first published Spanish nautical chart of Greek seas and includes THE FIRST EVER SPANISH PRINTED MAP OF CYPRUS (I.de Chipre).

Lapie Pierre, “Carte de la Moree dressee et grave au Depot de la guerre par ordre du gouvernement en 1807, publiee a Paris en 1814”. Impressive (105x61cm), separately printed in six sheets & attached on linen, military wall map of Peloponnesus, with additional inset maps of Navarino gulf, Isthmus of Corinth, and Rio-Antirio channel. A semi-topographical, accurate map for its time, based on semi-triangular measurements and (partly) on non measurable observations (travellers accounts). In 1802 Napoleon ordered a new accurate map of Morea with the French Depot de la Guerre producing this map from 1803 up to 1807 under the leadership of Barbie du Bocage. The map was not published for security reasons until 1814, when the geographer Pierre Lapie published it with minor additions. This was the most accurate map of Morea, until the complete triangulation of the area in the early 1830s (the French Expedition map), widely used during Greek revolution as many testimonies certify. Self adhesive tape on linen joints on reverse. VERY RARE.

THE FAMOUS FRENCH EXPEDITION MAP. Impressive lithographed military topographic map of Peloponnesus (120x120 cm), originally printed in 6 sheets of 60x40cm each, all sheets segmented, folded and in an elegant contemporary sleeve 21x17cm rubbed. In 1:200.000 climax, the first scientific map of any Greek area. With the seventh sheet, 60x40cm, with maps of Navarino, Mantinia and Messini in more detailed scales. Complete, all Peloponnesus sheets ever printed. Few contemporary marginal manuscript inscriptions, overall in very good condition. According Ploutoglou, Pazarli and Livieratos (“Two emblematic French maps of Peloponnesse”, Thessaloniki University 2013), with the arrival of French troops in Morea under Maison in 1828, the French General Staff ordered the preparation of a detailed map using systematic geodetic and topographical measurements in the largest until then scale. The geodetic work started in 1829 and completed in 1831. The detailed initial work was very rigorous, including height measurements, but the delay made the French to decide a simplification of the procedures on the field. Peytier (1793-1864) a specialist engineer-geodetic was the chief of the French team. Although the result was not perfect, this map was by far, the best ever produced for any part of Greece and the first scientific map of Greece, using triangulation methods, ever published. A landmark in Greek cartography. Extremely Rare..
