1775 - A Map of South America Containing Tierra-Firma, Guyana, New Granada, Amazonia, Brasil, Peru, Paraguay, Chaco, Tucuman, Chili and Patagonia from Mr. D'Anvillewith Several Improvements and Additions from the Newest Discoveries.4 SHEETS- each folio sized, together forming a wall map. Issued London, 1775 Sept. 20 by Robert Sayer. Likely engraved by T. Kitchin. Rare wall map sized antique engraved map with original outline hand color. Heavily restored but still wonderful and noble example! Please read description carefully!Map has been expertly laid down onto quality heavy backing paper, the whole job patiently and expertly done. As good a job as likely could have been done with the map as it survived when an earlier owner took it to be preserved. Noble and excellent restoration job, not perfect looking, the map had serious damp staining and paper loss along fold-lines prior to preservation. Still well worthy of ownership in a collection or for display. Fascinating details abound for this era, the text is fascinating, dated discoveries noted, rhumb lines, historical discussions within the interior regions, etc. All sorts of notations and observations about the landscape, tribes, discoveries of, unknown coastlines, supposed routes of travel from Spansih maps, etc. 18th century country maps in multi-sheet wall-size format like found here are rarely encountered for under $1000 when clean and in excellent condition. A defective but still pleasing example, priced accordingly, the restoration job could easily have cost more than our asking price. Large decorative title cartouch … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marra, John]
London. xiii,[1],328pp. plus folding map and five plates. With an additional folding map, "Part of the Tropical Discoveries of the Resolution Sloop Captain J. Cook in 1774." Contemporary calf, spine richly gilt, gilt morocco label. Front hinge weakening, light shelf wear. Bookplate on front free endpaper. Small worm holes in lower margin of second half of leaves, not affecting text. Very good. The earliest published complete account of Cook's second voyage, issued at least eighteen months prior to the official version. The second voyage included the first crossing of the Antarctic circle, making Marra's narrative the earliest firsthand account of the Antarctic, and the engraved plates are the first depictions of that region. Due to the strict regulations against private publications, the work was published anonymously, but the identity of the author did not remain a mystery for long. "Correspondence between Cook and the Admiralty shows that the author was John Marra, one of the gunners' mates in the Resolution. He was an Irishman whom Cook had picked up at Batavia during the first voyage. He made an abortive attempt to desert at Tahiti on 14 May 1774, an escapade of which Cook took so lenient a view that he says - 'I know not if he might have obtained my consent, if he had applied for it in proper time.' This did not, however, as Marra states at p. 241, prevent his being put in irons." - Holmes. This copy contains the extremely rare extra folding map, "Part of the Tropical Discoveries of the Resolution Sloop Captain J. Cook in 1774," which is noted by Beddie and Rosove but … [Click Below for Full Description]

Back with ornate nerves. Head and tail piece in blond morocco. Rubbed together. The planks are cut shorter. Fresh package. The guard papers are not the same on 2 volumes, they have been changed. A restoration at the tail of volume II. Part of volume II with lack (friction) on the term Rustic. Pretty good copy, which one meets most often badly connected.An eighteenth-century editorial success, the Rustic House is an encyclopedia of rural and agricultural life; it deals with all matters in a practical and usual manner: a chapter on bees, but also on construction and gardens and how to conceive it, the farmyard, horses, harvests, all trees, shrubs, birds, cooking, vineyards, fishing, hunting ... Its success is to have concentrated as much practical knowledge (without facilities or vulgarizations) of a almost playful for the reader, the chapters on the garden are exemplary in this regard.

Five raised bands to spine with contrasting panels for titles and volume numbers.

Volume one contains a list of subscribers. front fly leaf of each volume printed with the Reilly coat of arms (Fortitudine et Prudentia) together with the name 'Mr. Rich'd. D. Reily, Cork.' What makes Johnson's dictionary such a great book is not so much the extensive examples of usage 'from the best writers' but the humour and prejudice of the author himself. Possibly one of the best known amongst these is: "Excise: a hateful tax levied upon commodities and adjudged not by the common judges of property but wretches hired by those to whom excise is paid." Externally fine. Overall the two volumes are in very good condition internally with hardly any trace of spotting. Some minor worm damage to both volumes - mainly affecting the lower margins with some lesser damage to upper margins. The worm damage has had minimal impact on the printed text which is entirely legible. Small loss to lower corner of *Y2 in volume one and similar in volume two *5N and +M2. Some light damp staining to lower corners of volume two, affecting approximately the final fifth of the text block - again, with no impact on the legibility of the text as it … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wood (Robert)
Printed by H. Hughs; for T. Payne 1775 - FIRST TRADE EDITION, engraved portrait frontispiece and four other plates (two folding), toned and sometimes spotted, the plates a bit more so than the text, half-title discarded, small dampmarks to upper margin of frontispiece, pp. [iii]-xv, [i], 342, 4to, early twentieth-century half pebble-grain dark green morocco, marbled boards, the leather mostly evenly sunned to dark brown, joints and edges rubbed, small crack to head of rear joint, good. Initially published privately in an edition of only 7 copies, this is the posthumous first trade edition of the traveller and scholar Robert Wood's (1716-1771) important essay on Homer. 'Wood's most influential contribution was his argument in favour of the historical accuracy of Homer's works and his observation that the landscape and customs recorded in the epics were still to be observed in their original settings. This he considered testified to the poet's genius in capturing both. He argued strongly in favour of the now generally accepted theory that Homer's works were part of an oral tradition' (ODNB).

Dezauche J.A.
Artist: Dezauche JA ; issued in: Paris; date: ca, 1775. - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 49 x 67; - description : chart of the Indian Ocean after AprËs de Mannevillette; - vita of the artist: J. A. Dezauche was the successor to Guillaume De L'Isle and Philipe Buache. Guillaume De L¥isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L¥isle was admitted into the French AcadÈmie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ìGÈographe de líAcadÈmieî. Five years later, he moved to the Quai de líHorloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L¥isleís ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier GÈographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIVís son, a task for which he received a salary. De L¥sleís reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ìonce authority was established, a geographerís name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakersî. In De L¥isleís case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his fatherís. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empireís claims to recentl … [Click Below for Full Description]

FORBES, Duncan.
Paris, Costard, 1775. in-8. [4],xx,461,[1] pp. Veau marbré, dos doré a nerfs (coiffe supérieure endommagée, quelques taches, ex-libris écarté, manquent les 2 dern.blancos; un peu brûni) - probablement titre renouvelé de l'éd.1769. "Some Thoughts concerning Religion, natural and revealed tending to show that Christianity is, indeed, very near as old as the Creation" (1735) was an answer to John Tindal's ‘Christianity as Old as the Creation'. "Translated into French by Charles François Houbigant in 1769; but, it is said, 'the solidity of a Scottish lawyer could not be expected to suit with the vivacity of French reasoners.' Another peculiarity perhaps had more importance. Forbes was a follower of the fanciful school founded by John Hutchinson, and afterwards represented by Bishop Horne, Jones of Nayland, Parkhurst, and others, with which his translator seems to have been in sympathy. His piety was superior to his scholarship, but his books show an attractive enthusiasm and seriousness. Warburton in 1750 (Letters, 2nd edition, p.40) recommends the posthumous work on incredulity as 'a little jewel. I knew and venerated the man,' he adds; 'one of the greatest that ever Scotland bred, both as a judge, a patriot, and a Christian.' Though Warburton is not a safe critic, he seems to have expressed a general opinion." (DNB.19/384)

ROSS, Lieutenant
London: Robert Sayer, 1775. Engraved with outline color, on two joined sheets. Formerly folded into atlas. Some skilful marginal restoration. The first large-scale map of the Mississippi River, and the first based in whole or in part on English surveys.In the 1763 Treaty of Paris, which ended the French and Indian War, the east bank of the Mississippi was transferred from French to British sovereignty. And in 1765, Lieutenant Ross was sent on an expedition up the river as far as Illinois. Upon his return, he created a manuscript map focused on the great river that added his expedition's observations to the most recent French cartographical information, particularly that contained in D'Anville's map. The Ross map provided the first detailed, large-scale look at the river for its entire length, with the scattered French settlements and Native American tribal regions along its banks. Interestingly, the east bank features far more detail than the opposing side, as Ross and other British surveyors were technically only permitted to explore the British side of the river, which henceforth represented the western boundary of the English colonies.The Chart begins at the top in Illinois where the French had established Fort de Chartres in 1720 on the east bank of the river, south of St. Louis and the confluence of the Illinois River.The map was first published by Robert Sayer on June 1, 1772. This second issue of 1775 shows many alterations in the neighborhood of New Orleans, including the addition of Forts St. Leon and St. Mary.Stevens & Tree, "Comparative Cartography" 31b, in Too … [Click Below for Full Description]
