        OEUVRES COMPLÈTES DE JACQUES-HENRI-BERNARDIN DE SAINT-PIERRE, mis en ordre et précédées de la vie de l'auteur par L. AIMÉ-MARTIN (12 vol., 1818)

      Méquignon-Marvis, Paris 1818 - À Paris, chez Méquignon-Marvis, 1818, couvertures cartonnées vert pomme avec pièces de titre et tomaison au dos, environs 22.5 X 14.5 cm, (6) 271 + 251 pages, 383, (xxiv) 506, 503, 458, 393, 474, (xlviii) 382, 444, 459, 508 et 692 pages. Je compte 26 gravures dont une dépliante mais certaines m'ont peut-être échappée mais n'ayant pas le détail bibliographique et n'étant pas toutes numérotées il m'est impossible de dire si elles sont toutes là (si vous avez la référence n'hésitez pas à me l'envoyer, merci) bien qu'il n'y ait pas d'évidences que certaines aient été arrachées. Les douze reliures sont en bon état mais tout de même usées aux coins, bordures et surfaces, avec parfois quelques petits manques aux extrémités des dos, quelques écorchures à certains plats, etc. Les intérieurs sont en bon état sinon mieux sans rien de remarquable sinon quelques rares déchirures en marge et à l'occasion certaines pages oxydées et rares roussures. Les livres sont solidement reliés. Les planches sont en excellent état. Un ensemble acceptable de ces rares Oeuvres Complètes.

        Carey's General Atlas, Improved and Enlarged; being a collection of maps of the World and quarters; their principal empires, kingdoms, &c.

      Published by M. Carey and Son, Philadelphia 1818 - Expertly bound to style in half red morocco over original paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into seven compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in the second compartment A fine copy of the 1818 edition of Carey's General Atlas, containing maps updated with information from Lewis and Clark's discoveries. Mathew Carey published the first American atlas in 1795. That atlas contained only 21 maps, making the present atlas, with 58 maps, much improved and expanded from the original effort. Most of the atlas is devoted to the United States and its territories, and incorporates the latest geographical knowledge available, by what was then one of the premier mapping firms in the United States. There are maps of virtually every state, including the North-Western, Michigan, Illinois and Indiana Territories. The western maps are particularly detailed, incorporating geographic information from recent explorations. The map of the whole North American continent and the excellent large detailed map of the United States and territories can lay claim to being the best available to that time. The other maps are of the West Indies, South America, Mexico, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and one of "Captain Cook's Discoveries" showing a large part of the North Pacific and as far south as the Hawaiian Islands. Wheat points out that the map of the Missouri Territory was influenced by the recent explorations of Lewis and Clark: "Lewis and Clark influence is apparent on the Upper Missouri and also along the Columbia. Missouri Territory extends west to the Pacific Coast, its probable northern and southern boundaries being shown by colored dotted lines. The northern line runs easterly from Mt. Ranier and includes most of the Columbia watershed, thence north of the Missouri drainage and including that of the Assiniboin (with its large lake), thence east to Lake of the Woods and south to the head of the Mississippi, which then forms the eastern boundary. The southern line leaves the coast just north of F.S. Francisco (whose Bay is not shown), thence easterly and slightly north of the headwaters of the Rio Grande, following south along the ridge east of that stream, southeast to the head of the Colorado (of Texas) and down that stream to the Gulf of Mexico at St. Bernardo B. The State of Louisiana (admitted 1812) appears near the mouth of the Mississippi." Phillips Atlases 732; Streeter Sale 82, citing the 1814 issue; Wheat Transmississippi West 315, citing the 1814 issue. 17 3/4 x 12 inches). Letterpress title and 2pp. preface, 1p. certification leaf with two columns of letterpress text below a three-quarter page engraved plate made up of seven small maps. 58 engraved maps, all hand-coloured in outline (48 double-page, 1 folding).
