FADEN, W./ RATZER, B
London, 1777. No Binding. Very Good. 30 ½ x 22 ¼ inches. . Original outline color; small area of wear at one fold expertly repaired with some reinstatement of image, else excellent. The definitive map of New Jersey of the 18th century, in its rare first state. It was the first map to present the geography of New Jersey with any degree of detailed accuracy. It also illuminates for the first time the state's topography, river networks, early road system, and the locations of its natural resources. Moreover, Schwartz states that it is "the most important general map of New Jersey during the revolutionary period." As such, it would have been consulted by commanders on both sides during the American Revolution. According to a note on the map, it was based on surveys that were made in 1769 for the purpose of settling the border between New York and New Jersey, which had long been in dispute. The surveys were supervised by Lt. Bernard Ratzer, an important British military engineer and surveyor before and during the Revolution. The resulting boundary line, which was permanently adopted, is shown on the map. (The map also shows two different boundaries between East and West Jersey.) Ratzer was also the author of what is considered the finest colonial map of New York City. William Faden was an English publisher who played a leading role in filling the demand for accurate maps, charts and plans relating to the campaigns of the American Revolution. "His fine engravings made him one of the greatest cartographers of the late 18th century" (Snyder). The map's large, decorative car … [Click Below for Full Description]

DE LA CRUZ, Manuel (1750-1792) and Juan de la CRUZ CANO y OLMEDILLA (d. 1790)
Madrid: 1777-1778. 3 parts (of 7) in 1 volume. (15 3/4 x 10 1/4 inches). 36 engraved plates, numbered 1-36, comprising the first three cahiers of the work.

Contemporary marbled paper covered boards, front hinge cracked. The first three parts of a very rare 18th century Spanish costume book, including American subjects. The number of plates in extant copies seem to vary, with Colas citing one copy with as many as 82 plates (though it would seem that 84 were in fact issued; i.e. 7 cahiers of 12 plates each).

ZIMMERMANN, Eberhard August Wilhelm
Leiden,: Theodor Haak,, 1777.. Quarto, with a large folding map (500 x 695 mm.); a very good unsophisticated copy in simple modern blue paper wrappers, a few marks, the large folding map in a very good impression. Rare: first edition of the first book to describe the worldwide distribution of mammals, with the information summarized in a large folding world map, one of the first to include Captain Cook's 1770 discoveries on the east coast of Australia.Zimmermann (1743-1815) was a German geographer and zoologist, best known as a teacher and as the patron of the mathematician Gauss. He published a number of monographs on mammals, including several published in the nineteenth century specifically on American animals. This remarkable work is an early and extensive survey of the worldwide geographical distribution of domestic and migratory quadrupeds. He concluded that land-masses were differently distributed in prehistoric times, making this the first in a long line of publications that led to the theory of continental drift; some of his conclusions influenced Charles Darwin and Charles Lyell.Importantly, the details of animal habits in Australia, the South Pacific and New Zealand derive from the great voyages, from Quiros to Cook, making this study an example - along with the various publications of the Forsters on the Cook voyages - of the earliest application of Pacific discoveries to general scientific research.The fine accompanying world map renders the east coast of Australia, and lists the Kangaroo and several species of Australian wild dog.

COOK, Capt. James (1728-1779)
London: W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1777. 2 volumes, quarto. (11 5/16 x 9 inches). Engraved portrait of Cook by J. Basire after William Hodges, 63 engraved plates, maps and charts (31 folding), one folding letterpress table. Nineteenth century calf, covers bordered in blind, rebacked to style, red and green morocco labels in the second and third compartments. First edition of Cook's second voyage on which he was directed to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible to search for any southern continent. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilization and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century" (Printing and the Mind of Man p.135). "The success of Cook's first voyage led the Admiralty to send him on a second expedition, described in the present work, which was to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible in search of any southern continents ... the men of this expedition became the first to cross the Antarctic Circle. Further visits were made to New Zealand, and on two great sweeps Cook made an astonishing series of discoveries and rediscoveries including Easter Island, the Marquesas, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Niue, the Tonga Islands, the New Hebrides … [Click Below for Full Description]

FORSTER, Johann Reinhold
London,: B. White [etc.], 1777.. Two volumes, quarto, with a large folding map; the map slightly spotted and some light spotting at beginning and end of first volume; a very good copy in contemporary diced russia leather, gilt borders to sides, rebacked. First edition of the alternative account of Cook's second voyage, published some six weeks before the official version. Although the Forsters had to rush to complete the work, it is 'an important work and a necessary supplement to the official account' (Davidson).Johann Forster and his son Georg had sailed together on Cook's second voyage after Banks and his associates withdrew. Initially given the task of preparing the official account, the Forsters' fractious relationship with the Admiralty soon became impossible, and Johann Forster was dismissed from taking any part in the official publications. Thus denied, the Forsters set to work to forestall the official version with their own account, taking advantage of the loophole that only Johann had any legal agreement with the Admiralty: the account appeared in Georg's name.The publication was the source of great rancour, which was only enflamed when the astronomer, Wales, roundly accused Georg of being author in name only, the real author being solely his father. This is palpably untrue and, as Georg states in his preface, he did indeed write the account in consultation with his father's journal. Whatever the case, it effectively signalled the end of the Forsters' chances in England, and by mid-1780 both had returned to Germany.The split between Cook and the Forsters has scar … [Click Below for Full Description]

SHAKESPEARE. - [FIRST DANISH TRANSLATION OF HAMLET-THE DANISH PRINCE]
Kiöbenhavn (Copenhagen), Hallager, 1777. 8vo. Contemporary half calf with gilt title-label to spine. Binding worn. Internally very nice, clean, and fresh, with only very minor and light occassional browning. Old owner's name finely removed from title-page. Printed on nice, heavy paper.. Very rare first edition of the highly interesting first Danish translation of "Hamlet", being the first translation of any of Shakespeare's works into any Scandinavian language.One of the most interesting translations of any work by Shakespeare must that of "Hamlet" into Danish, the legend of Prince Hamlet being Danish and the work taking place in Helsinore in Denmark. "In 1777 "Hamlet" was translated into Danish by Johannes Boye. As the plot is based on the Danish legend preserved by Saxo, it is fitting that "Hamlet" was the first Shakespeare to appear in Danish." (Nancy S. Reinhardt, Danish Literature. An exhibition at the Houghton Library. The Harvard College Library, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1986, nr. 61).The present publication marks the beginning of the Shakespearian entry into Scandinavia, constituting as it does the very first translation of any of Shakespeare's works into any Scandinavian language. "We shall probably never know when Shakespeare first came to Denmark. That his name was known to scores of young Danish scholars who visited England and studied at her universities in the early years of the eighteenth century is all but certain. Holberg's silence cannot be construed into proof of complete ignorance, and Toger Reenberg, in some significant lines, celebrates Shakespeare as … [Click Below for Full Description]

MITCHELL, John (1711-1768). - Georges Louis LE ROUGE (1712-1790)
Paris: Le Rouge, 1777. Engraved map, hand-coloured in outline, on 8 sheets (individual sheets: 27 1/4 x 21 inches, if joined would form a single large sheet 59 x 79 inches), with large allegorical cartouche and inset map of Hudson's Bay and Labrador. Good condition, small repaired tear. Housed in a red morocco backed box. A fine example of a French edition of Mitchell's monumental mapping of Colonial America, a scarce issue published during the American Revolution."John Mitchell was not a mapmaker by profession, rather he was a medical doctor, natural philosopher, and botanist of considerable merit. Yet his sole cartographic endeavor...was perhaps the greatest produced in the history of America" ( Degrees of Latitude ).Mitchell's Map of the British and French Dominions in North America is widely regarded as the most important map in American History. Prepared on the eve of the French & Indian War, it was the second large format map of North America printed by the British and included the best up to date information on the region. Over the next century, it would play a significant role in the resolution of every significant boundary dispute involving the northern border of the then British Colonies and later the United States. It was also the map-of-record at the birth of the United States and continued in this role through several decades in the early life of the country.John Mitchell, a respected British physician, botanist, chemist, biologist, and surveyor, lived for a time in Virginia, but returned to England in 1746, where he remained.

Engraved map, hand-coloured in outline, on 8 sheets (individual sheets: 27 1/4 x 21 inches, if joined would form a single large sheet 59 x 79 inches), with large allegorical cartouche and inset map of Hudson's Bay and Labrador. Good condition, small repaired tear. Housed in a red morocco backed box. A fine example of a French edition of Mitchell's monumental mapping of Colonial America, a scarce issue published during the American Revolution. "John Mitchell was not a mapmaker by profession, rather he was a medical doctor, natural philosopher, and botanist of considerable merit. Yet his sole cartographic endeavor...was perhaps the greatest produced in the history of America" ( Degrees of Latitude ). Mitchell's Map of the British and French Dominions in North America is widely regarded as the most important map in American History. Prepared on the eve of the French & Indian War, it was the second large format map of North America printed by the British and included the best up to date information on the region. Over the next century, it would play a significant role in the resolution of every significant boundary dispute involving the northern border of the then British Colonies and later the United States. It was also the map-of-record at the birth of the United States and continued in this role through several decades in the early life of the country. John Mitchell, a respected British physician, botanist, chemist, biologist, and surveyor, lived for a time in Virginia, but returned to England in 1746, where he remained.

Hanway, Jonas.
Printed for Dodsley, in Pall-Mall; Sewel, near the Royal-Exchange; and Bew, in Pater-noster-Row, 1777. This is the second edition of => father-daughter dialogues intended to strengthen => servants' morals by myriad examples and advice; it was first published as an octavo series in 1774, using much the same content as Hanway's earlier Farmer's Advice to his Daughter (1770). The author (1712-86) was a merchant and philanthropist known not only for his charity, but also for regularly sporting both a sword and an umbrella at a time when neither was fashionable, and for tipping attractive female servants especially well. (He was a prolific author, too.) Chapters include conversations between daughter Mary and her father on the utmost importance of prayer, sacraments, and charity; the "reciprocal duties of masters and servants"; the "necessity of subordination"; and "caution to female domestics against dancing-meetings," among many, many other topics large and small. The text is handsomely printed double-column in roman and italic, with => two finely engraved frontispieces signed by E. Edwards and J. Hall, one at the beginning of each volume: the first of a father and daughter sitting beneath a tree; the second of Hanway seated on a rock, contemplating a book and skull beneath the motto "Never Despair" -- the author's own, which he adopted after a particularly grueling merchant voyage for the Russia Company in 1743. Each volume also has its own title-page, the Manual of Devotion, Consisting of Prayers, Psalms, Hymns, and Lessons that appears between the two having its own … [Click Below for Full Description]

RATZER, Bernard (fl. 1756-84) & William FADEN, (1750-1836)
London: Wm. Faden, 1777. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, on two joined sheets, in very good condition. The first state of one of the finest and most celebrated maps of New Jersey, made during the Revolutionary WarThis elegant composition depicts New Jersey in finely engraved detail at a large scale of 7 miles to an inch. The map was the grandest representation of the state made up to that time, taking in the entire breadth of the state, as well as the Hudson Valley, most of Long Island, eastern Pennsylvania and all of Delaware Bay. It captures the state's rich topography, including the Jersey Highlands and the Palisades in the north and the broad Pine Barrens and coastal marshes in the south. The county divisions, major roads and towns are all carefully depicted, indicating that New Jersey was, by the standards of the time, heavily populated, having over 120,000 inhabitants. Faden based his rendering of the state largely on the manuscript works of Bernard Ratzer, a British military surveyor most famous for his map of New York City. Ratzer's rendezvous with New Jersey cartography stemmed from the resolution of the bitter boundary dispute between that state and New York that had raged for over a century. In 1764, George III charged Samuel Holland and William De Brahm with settling the boundary, and their demarcation was finally surveyed by Ratzer in 1769. Ratzer's line is noted on the map as "The boundary settled by commissioners in 1769". Two of Ratzer's New Jersey manuscripts, one dealing with the boundary question, and another featuring Monmouth and O … [Click Below for Full Description]
