        A New Map of the English Empire in America Viz Virginia Maryland Carolina Pennsylvania New York New Jersey New England by Rob: Morden

      London: "Sold by Robt. Morden at the Atlas in Cornhill./ And by Christopher Brown at ye Globe/ near the Westend of St. Pauls/ Church: London", [circa 1695]. Copper-engraved map by John Harris, with original outline colour. Paper toned and margins somewhat soiled otherwise in very good condition. 20 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches. A rare and important map of the American colonies, in the scarce first state. This is in effect a propaganda map, compiled during the War of the League of Augsburg, or King William's War (1689-97). Morden shows the English American colonies thrusting westward, at the expense of the rival French claims. In addition to the Midwest, much of Canada is shown as English. The English colonies along the Atlantic Seaboard are carefully delineated according to English sources, but Canada, the Mississippi Valley, and the Great Lakes are based on French sources, including the maps of Dablon (1672) and Thevenot (1681). Morden still preserves Lederer's configuration (1672) in his depiction of the interior of the Southeast. At lower right is a large inset map of the North Atlantic, the vital life line between Britain and its American empire. Just above is the title piece crowned by the Royal Arms, and an inset map of Boston Harbor based on Thomas Pound's A New Mapp of New England from Cape Codd to Cape Sables (1691). The engraver, John Harris was one of the most accomplished members of his profession working in England. The insets are surrounded by decorative acanthus brackets and supports in the arabesque style, a signature motif of the artist. A second state was published in 1719 with the imprint of John Senex. Provenance: deaccessioned from the Western Reserve Historical Society, 2001 Degrees of Latitude, pp. 358-360; Stevens & Tree, Comparative Cartography, 20a, in Tooley, The Mapping of America; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps, 695; Cumming, The Southeast in Early Maps, 119; Phillips, A List of Maps of America, p. 564.

        Camden's Britannia, Newly Translated into English: With Large Additions And Improvements

      London: F. Collins. for A.Swalle & A. & F. Churchil, 1695. leather_bound. Contemporary panelled calf decorated in blind, rebacked with original red leather spine label laid-down. Near fine./No Dust Jacket. 1116, (18), (26) pages.[*1, A2, a-g2, B-Fff4, Ggg4,*Ggg2, Hhh4, *Hhh2, Iii-Mmm4,& Nnn-Nnnn2, a-l2]. Frontispiece, fifty double-paged maps by Robert Morden, nine plates of maps, and a host of engravings in the text -- most notable, that of Stonehenge, Rolle-rich stones of Oxfordshire; and some Roman tablets, altars and inscriptions. "Britannia" is a county-by-county description of Great Britain. It is a work of chorography: a study that relates landscape, geography, antiquarianism and history. Rather than write a history, Camden described in detail the Great Britain of the present, and attempted to delineate how the past could be discerned in the existing landscape. He thus produced the first coherent picture of Roman Britain. His circle of friends and acquaintances included Lord Burghley, Fulke Greville, Philip Sydney, Edmund Spencer, and Ben Jonson, the latter was Camden's student at Westminster, and who dedicated an early edition of "Every Man in His Humor" to him. SKELTON 117, WING C-359. Handwritten bookplate of Thomas Ansell, dated 1762, text and maps largely bright and clean, minor margin worming leaves Ffff-Mmmm, old repair upper corner of leaf Bb, Kent plate inverted, but overall a fresh and unsophisticated copy.

        West Indische Paskaert

      Amsterdam, 1695. A MAP OF GREAT IMPORTANCE FOR THE WESTERN NAVIGATION TO BRAZIL Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 331/4" x 393/4" References: G. Schilder, Monumenta Cartographica Neerlandica (Aphen a/d Rijn, 1996), 4: 114, 63.4; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 288-291. This map is Johannes Loots's extraordinarily rare printing of Willem Blaeu's second West Indische Paskaert, originally published in 1630. Blaeu's legendary map of the Atlantic Ocean, of which no more than two examples are known, was the first sea chart relating to North America to use Mercator's projection. The copperplate for the map passed through the hands of Jacob Robijn, who probably acquired it at one of the sales of the Blaeu's stock in 1674, two years after the Blaeu firm had been decimated by the Great Fire in Amsterdam. From Robijn the plate passed largely unaltered (other than the cartouches) to Pieter Goos and lastly to Loots. While this map, with its network of rhumb lines indicating bearings, bears a close resemblance to previous sea charts, it was based on an entirely different geometric projection, developed by Mercator. Prior to this major innovation, medieval and Renaissance sea charts had not been drawn on any projection. They lacked indications of latitude or longitude as well as consistent orientation. While such portolan charts were highly effective in allowing mariners to chart a course from one port to another - directions, indicated by intricate networks of rhumb lines, tended to be remarkably accurate - distances were shown approximately at best. Moreover, these earlier sea charts did not take into account the curvature of the earth, and even bearings were subject to significant distortion once the distances involved extended to the width of the Atlantic Ocean. Blaeu's groundbreaking West Indische Paskaert was the first to rectify that situation by employing Mercator's projection: a revolutionary solution to a navigational quandary that had existed since the discovery of the New World. Blaeu's sea chart was probably intended for the sole use of the Dutch West India Company, and the map shows the area chartered to the Company in 1621. The map extends from Ireland to Newfoundland in the north and to the Cape of Good Hope and Rio de la Plata in the south, and from the Gulf of Mexico in the west to Greece in the east. Even by the latter part of the seventeenth century, this map remained enormously important for Western navigation to Brazil, because it was only in 1685 that the first charts of the Brazilian coast were published by Robijn. The interior of North and South America is richly decorated with the coats of arms of the ruling countries: Portugal, Spain, France, the Netherlands and Germany.. Book.

      Uncoloured engraved map of the Azores. Amsterdam: Joannes Loots ca. 1695. 40,5 x 52 cm. Margins with repairs and a few tears.. As mathematical and nautical instrument maker, Loots also published manuals on navigation. For a time he was in partnership with an engraver, A de Winter, and an author of text books on charts, Claes de Vries, who had ambitions to publish a very large sea atlas of some 200 charts but this was never completed on the scale contemplated. Some of their charts were sold to Gerard van Keulen and others were used in a sea atlas published in 1697. Charts by Loots also appear in a number of other pilot books and sea atlases of the time

He lived for some years among the Indians, and, on occasion, acted as parish priest or professor of philosophy. His book, published after his return, caused a great sensation, for it was the first to give the world a description of the vast regions from which all foreigners had been jealously excluded by the Spanish authorities. The work was translated into French, Dutch, and German, but its purpose was to urge the English to seize the Spanish territories in the New World." Near contemporary calf (rubbed), spine with elaborate blind-stamped decoration, vellum spine label, all edges sprinkled red. Very good. (1361)
