        A Plan of the City's of London, Westminster and Borough of Southwark with the new Additional Buildings Anno 1720

      London: Senex, 1720. Copper-engraved map by Samuel Parker, with full modern colour, skilfully repaired split at top of centerfold, overall in very good condition. 20 3/8 x 25 inches. A fascinating, highly detailed map of London by one of the leading English cartographers of the period. This is an excellent parish by parish, block by block map of the London that was built after the Great Fire of 1666. (St. Paul's was completed in 1710). The map includes an index that locates the 87 parishes in London and Westminster, and eight in Southwark. Many parishes had new churches built between the years 1670 and 1711, 52 of which were designed and executed by Christopher Wren. Samuel Parker, the engraver, did a superb job of drawing and engraving so that minute details of the city's topography are shown. The attractive cartouche includes symbols of London's greatness: two cornucopeias, one of fruit and one of precious metal objects and jewels. At the base is a picture of a king, presumably George II, whose sword and scepter are supported by two dragons. To the sides and behind these are symbols of British cultural and mercantile superiority. The map is dedicated to Sir Peter Delme, a very wealthy and powerful gentleman, one of the first residents of Grosvenor Square, and, for a time, Lord Mayor.

      Cum figuris aeri incisis. Hannover, Nicolai Foerster, 1720. 8:o. Grav. extra titelblad,+ XXIIX,+ (2),+ 590 s.+ 18 grav. planscher, varav 11 utvikbara. Titel tryckt i rött och svart. Lagerfläckar och enstaka småfläckar. Välbevarat samtida pergamentband, med beigefärgat titelfält, stänksnitt. Fint exemplar ur Warmholtz bibliotek, med dennes anteckningar på försättsbladet, och Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Warmholtz 1421. Brunet III, 657. Carlander II, 464ff & III, 564ff. Första upplagan av denna samling av essäer om fornnordisk/ keltisk religion och kult, bl.a. om Stonehenge och andra monument, och druider. Warmholtz anser att den upptar mycket som angår de nordiska antikviteterna, även om författaren är kritisk mot svenska historiker och i synnerhet gentemot Rudbeck. Den innehåller tidiga illustrationer av Stonehenge, och den är även känd för kapitlet om Maran och mardrömmar. J. G. Keysler (1693-1743) var tysk antikvarie, som annars idag kanske är mest känd för sin reseskildring i Centraleuropa. C. G. Warmholtz väldiga historiska bibliotek på Christineholm utanför Nyköping, vilket låg till grund för hans stora bibliografi, såldes 1780 till Gjörwell och Uppfostringssällskapet. Dennes kroniskt dåliga ekonomi tvingade honom dock att i olika omgångar sälja vidare bitar av biblioteket, som således skingrades. Många titlar letade sig så småningom fram till Ericsberg, ofta via d'Albedyhll
