        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.

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

        To the Right Honourable William Lord Cowper, Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain, this Map of Asia

      London: H. Moll, D. Midwinter, Thos. Bowles, Philip Overton, [circa 1720]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, slightly toned, marginal foxing, centerfold reinforced. 25 1/4 x 40 1/4 inches. A fine example of Moll's intriguing map of Asia, depicting the continent just before the greatest era of European imperial expansion This sensational map embraces the entire Asiatic landmass, as conceived by Europeans in the first quarter of the eighteenth-century. During this period, rival powers, including Britain, France, the Netherlands and Portugal vied for trade dominance in this region rich in spices and precious gems. Most of India was ruled by the Mughal Empire; China was then under the Qing Dynasty; and the mighty Shogun ruled Japan. The British were the dominant traders in India and the Dutch held the lead in the Spice Islands. The map features cartographic insets detailing some of the most commercially important Asiatic locales including; the Hellespont, connecting the Black Sea to the Mediterranean, running past the Ottoman capital of Istanbul; the harbour of Bombay; the Hoogly River, running past modern day Kolkata in Bengal; the Chinese trading islands of Amoy and Chusan; as well as an inset of the Arctic coast of Asia, which some still hoped would one day reveal a 'Northeastern Passage' from Europe to the Far East. The general map shows that parts of the continent lying to the northeast of Honshu, Japan were scarcely known. "Iessu," or Hokkaido has a nebulous shape, connected to an equally mysterious Siberia. This map includes an important feature for mariners, the directions and annual times of the Monsoons in the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea, winds and currents that either greatly aid or hinder the direction of sailing vessels. The sensational title cartouche depicts figures in exotic Asian costume, surrounded by various riches, including jewelry and Ming porcelain.The present map was part of Herman Moll's magnificent folio work, a New and Compleat Atlas. Moll was the most important cartographer working in London during his era, a career that spanned over fifty years. His origins have been a source of great scholarly debate; however, the prevailing opinion suggests that he hailed from the Hanseatic port city of Bremen, Germany. Joining a number of his countrymen, he fled the turmoil of the Scanian Wars for London, and in 1678 is first recorded as working there as an engraver for Moses Pitt on the production of the English Atlas. It was not long before Moll found himself as a charter member of London's most interesting social circle, which congregated at Jonathan's Coffee House at Number 20 Exchange Alley, Cornhill. It was at this establishment that speculators met to trade equities (most notoriously South Sea Company shares). Moll's coffeehouse circle included the scientist Robert Hooke, the archaeologist William Stuckley, the authors Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe, and the intellectually-gifted pirates William Dampier, Woodes Rogers and William Hacke. From these friends, Moll gained a great deal of privileged information that was later conveyed in his cartographic works, some appearing in the works of these same figures. Moll was highly astute, both politically and commercially, and he was consistently able to craft maps and atlases that appealed to the particular fancy of wealthy individual patrons, as well as the popular trends of the day. In many cases, his works are amongst the very finest maps of their subjects ever created with toponymy in the English language.
