        [COLLECTION OF FOUR MANUSCRIPT VOLUMES BELONGING TO TRADESMAN JOHN BROWNE, COMPRISED OF TWO LEDGERS AND TWO RECEIPT BOOKS]

      [Philadelphia, 1825. First ledger in calf, tooled in blind: front board detached, rear hinge broken; boards and spine scuffed and stained; scattered foxing, but contents generally very good. Second ledger in three-quarter calf and marbled boards: boards scuffed, worn at extremities, front hinge starting; some scattered foxing, but generally very good; in a cloth clamshell box. First receipt book in calf, tooled in blind: a few loose leaves; very clean internally; very good. Second receipt book in three- quarter calf and marbled boards: spine disintegrating, boards scuffed and worn; some scattered foxing and transfer between leaves; about very good. In a cloth clamshell box, leather label. An interesting collection of manuscript volumes belonging to John Browne, a boat builder and tradesman in Philadelphia. Approximately half of the material is related to Browne's business accounts, including receipts and lists of transactions. The other half, circa 1820, contains writing by Browne's wife, Molly, and possibly his children. This half of the manuscript material is of a more personal, scrapbook-esque nature, comprised of poems and pasted clippings. The first ledger holds accounts from 1776. The first twelve pages are tabbed and divided into an alphabetical index containing dozens of names. Following that are the individual accounts, comprising 121 numbered leaves, which are followed by the total summary for the ledger (7pp.), and lastly, several blank pages. The accounts detail money leant by Browne, which is then repaid in labor. The accounts are set up on facing pages, one side detailing the debt and the other the credit for said debt. Thus, on July 6, 1776, William Flud received "To Cash" £1.4.6, and the corresponding entry across the page reads "By 3 1/2 days work @ 7/0" to total £1.4.6. The debts are undersigned by the debtor and provide a fascinating glimpse into this system of loans and labor. The second of the two ledgers is more of a journal and scrapbook than an account book. Though the first five pages do contain some accounting information, they also contain a list of important familial and personal dates, a list of flowers growing in the garden, as well as two documents which have been pasted in. The first of these is a subpoena to Browne from the Court on the island of Tortola, dated January 13, 1798 and embossed with an official seal. The subpoena calls Browne to testify "in our behalf the truth of your Knowledge in a certain business of the Capture made by John Hodge Commander of [a] Private Commissioned Schooner." The majority of the middle of the volume is blank, though ruled for accounts. The latter half of the volume is written from the other side, making the rear board, in fact, the front board. This section of the ledger is, presumably, written by Browne's wife, Molly, circa 1820. It is primarily composed of verse and various pieces of prose, most of which have been copied from other sources. There are other manuscript pages pasted into this section which contain similar writings. The first of the receipt books has a few scattered entries dated 1776, 1779, 1792, and 1801, but the bulk of the book is devoted to 1788. The entries for 1788 deal almost exclusively with receipts for rent, though the other earlier and later entries are for items such as timber, and in one instance, a horse. The first few leaves have been pasted over with clippings from early newspapers. These are mostly verse, though there are some advertisements and brief news items. The second receipt book has been pasted over quite thoroughly, circa 1820, with many different and interesting woodcut illustrations. The contents of this volume provide an interesting snapshot of the printing arts at that time. Illustrations have been clipped from newspapers and periodicals, books and almanacs, packaging labels and revenue stamps, encompassing everything from advertisements for new products and services to zodiac calendars. One illustration shows a sperm whale, which is labeled "Candles and Spermoil"; another shows an early printing press under the banner, "The tyrant's foe, the people's friend." There are also several original children's drawings, as well as scraps of wallpaper and flocking. A truly fascinating little book.

        Picture of New York - Miniature Guide from 1825

      New York: Mahlon Day , 1825. Chapbook for children, measuring only 3.5 x 2.25 inches, contained in a custom made, half leather clamshell box. It lists New York as having 150,000 inhabitants. The publisher Mahlon Day was located at 376 Pearl St., New York, from 1825 to 1833. There are very few copies in institutional holdings. A copy sold on the open market in 2003 that being the Dr. Rosenbach copy with his bookplate. This copy is preserved in a custom made clamshell box. Before Baedeker perfected the vacation travel guide, some innovative authors published individual city guidebooks to select cities, known as "strangers' guides". Aimed primarily at business travelers, they typically list the roads and primary establishments in a city. A few of these guides were also published as giveaways for children. They often were in the form of little chapbooks and were highly ephemeral. Few survive to this day. . First Edition.

        Juristische Encyclopaedie, diktiert von Hl. Prof. Welker im Winterkurse 1825/26. (Vorlesungsmitschrift von unbekannter Hand).

      (Freiburg im Breisgau) 1825 - (Freiburg im Breisgau) 1825-26. 8vo. 312 handbeschriebene Seiten. Einfacher, zeitgenössischer Pappband mit geprägtem Rückenschild. Vorlesungsmitschrift an der Universität Freiburg im Breisgau. - Welcker (1790-1869) war der wichtigste und auch populärster liberaler Politiker und Jurist im 19. Jahrhundert. Durch sein Auftreten im badischen Landtag (1833-1848) und vor allem durch sein Wirken im Paulskirchenparlament erlangte er ausserordentliche Popularität. Sein Engagement entwickelte sich bald mehr auf dem praktisch-politischen Feld als in der Herausgabe wissenschaftlicheer Literatur. Der gebürtige Hesse studierte die Rechts- und Staatswissenschaften in Gießen (seit 1806) und Heidelberg. Nach der Habilitation im Jahre 1813 erhielt er 1814 einen Ruf zum o. Professor an die Universität Gießen, er folgten weitere Rufe an die Universitäten Kiel (1814-1816, hier Mitherausgeber der frühliberalen "Kieler Blätter"), Heidelberg (1816-1819), Bonn (1819-1822) und Freiburg im Breisgau (1822-1832). Aufgrund der vielfältigen politischen Betätigung beendete Welcker seine akademische Laufbahn bereits im Jahre 1832. Sein liberales Wirken in Baden, als Mitglied der Zweiten Badischen Kammer (1831-1851), machten ihn zum führenden Vertreter des süddeutschen Liberalismus. Er nahm als Abgeordneter 1848-49 an der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung teil (Casino-Fraktion, Fraktion Pariser Hof), war neben Bassermann, Dahlmann, Waitz und Droysen als Mitglied des Verfassungsausschusses an der Ausarbeitung einer gesamtdeutschen Verfassung beteiligt, zudem im Jahre 1848 in verschiedenen Funktionen für die Provisorische Zentralgewalt tätig. Publizistisch sind uns von Welcker vor allem 2 Monographie überliefert ("Die letzten Gründe" von 1813 sowie "Jury, Schwur- und Geschworenengericht" von 1840), zudem Erläuterungen zu den "Urkunden für den Rechtszustand der deutschen Nation" (von Johann Ludwig Klüber gesammelt). Daneben steht die Herausgeberschaft der "Kieler Blätter" (mit Friedrich Christoph Dahlmann und Nikolaus Falck), der Zeitung "Der Freisinnige" (gemeinsam mit Karl von Rotteck) sowie - wie ein Leuchtfeuer des deutschen Liberalismus im 19. Jahrhundert - des "Staats-Lexikons" (1834-1843 in 15 Bänden, gemeinsam mit Karl von Rotteck; die 2. Auflage in 12 Bänden - 1845-1848 - sowie die 3. Auflage in 14 Bänden - 1856-1866 - besorgte Welcker alleine). In dem Zusammenhang ist die vorliegende Vorlesungsmitschrift zur "Encyclopaedie" von allergrößtem Interesse. Einfacher, zeitgenössischer Pappband mit geprägtem Rückenschild. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fac Similes of Sketches

      1825. first edition. His sketches approached nearest to Hogarth of any painter of his period in the representation of life and manners"BUNBURY, H[enry]. W[illiam]. Fac Similes of Sketches by H.W. Bunbury Esqre. Never Before Published, No.1 [all published]. London: Printed by C. Hullmandel for R. Ackermann, 1825. First (only) Edition of Part One (all published). Large folio (21 7/8 x 15 inches; 557 x 381 mm.). Complete set of seven hand-colored lithographed plates (in landscape form) by W. Hunt after Bunbury on five sheets. Plates watermarked "J. Whatman 1824"Stitched in original buff printed wrappers with "To be completed in Four Numbers, each containing Five Plates." and No. "I" and Price "£1.0.0." in ink. Wrappers slightly creased and frayed at edges, otherwise fine. Chemised in a half black morocco clamshell case.Exceptionally Rare. Intended as a series of four parts, each with five plates, but only this first part was published. Only one copy recorded at auction. The British Museum have four of the plates (uncolored).1. "Dose-Ing the Squire"2. "A small account Sir ___ May have slipped your memory"3. "The Complete (April Ist.) Angler"4. "Bribery" and "Corruption" (two images on one plate)5. "Fee, Fa, Fum" and "The Nurse" (two images on one plate)Henry William Bunbury (1750-1811) "From 1795 to 1811, the year of his death, the publication of his works was very intermittent, only an occasional one at long intervals making its appearance. In 1811 "Patience in a Punt," and "Anglers in 1811," etched by Rowlandson, were published, and in 1825 R. Ackermann published "Facsimiles of Sketches by H.W. Bunbury, Esq., never before published." They were executed in lithography, and were advertised to be completed in four numbers, each containing five plates. Whether more than one part ever appeared it is difficult to say. There is a copy of the first number in the Print Room of the British Museum, and that is the only one we can trace. Bunbury remained an amateur to the end of his life, and may be instanced as a proof that where there is an original faculty for any particular art it will develop itself, though the possessor may be entirely unacquainted with the scientific principles of art. He had the happy facility of reading character at sight, and the rare power of embodying whatever impressed itself upon his memory in a style peculiarly his own. He was inferior in humour to Rowlandson, and in satire to Gillray, but as a delineator of character it is stated "that his sketches approached nearest to Hogarth of any painter of his period in the representation of life and manners: his pencil never transgresses the limits of good taste and delicacy, and had he been under the necessity of pursuing art for profit, instead of amusement and pleasure only, he would probably have made a great fortune." During his own day he was not only made much of by persons of high social position, but artists and critics alike vied with each other in bestowing praise on his designs. Horace Walpole coveted the sketches which Bunbury exhibited on the walls of the Academy, while Sir J. Reynolds and Benjamin West combined to pay their finest compliments to the artist."

        VIVA EL REY. PROCLAMA DEL GENERAL OLAÑETA A LOS PUEBLOS DEL ALTO Y BAJO PERU [caption title]

      [Oruro (?), 1825. Early folds. Very light staining, else near fine. An extremely rare, and possibly unrecorded, example of one of Gen. Antonio de Olañeta's final proclamations to the public, issued three months before his death. Olañeta was a major royalist leader during Bolivia and Peru's fight for independence, serving as a major-general and the commander-in-chief of Upper Peru (Bolivia) from 1823 to his death in 1825. In December 1824, after the revolutionaries' watershed victory at Ayachuco, Olañeta headed to the south of Chile to make a final stand for Spain. On April 4, during an attempt to quell a disturbance within one of his battalions, Olañeta was shot and killed by one of his own soldiers. In the present proclamation, signed in print at Ururo on Jan. 24, 1825, Olañeta declares that the Army of the North has been scattered by a treason of the "so-called liberals" and launches an invective against José de la Serna, Peru's last viceroy and general-in-chief, who lost Ayachuca and whom Olañeta had long opposed. He promises that the king's cause in Peru is not all lost, and calls for the towns of upper and lower Peru to maintain peace in the face of anarchy while the army continues to work to save them. Not in Palau or OCLC, and possibly unique.

        Kentucky and Tennessee ... Improved to 1825

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1825. Copper-engraving with full period color. Tanner's 1825 map of Kentucky and Tennessee. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. This map was first published in 1823 in the fifth part of Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas under the title "Kentucky, Tennessee and part of Illinois." In this second issue, from the 1825 edition of the atlas, Illinois has been dropped from the title and the map has been augmented by the addition of new counties (particularly in southwestern Tennessee) and the additions of various cities and roads. Phillips Atlases 3669-13; cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pp. 191-198; Rumsey 2755.013; cf. Sabin 94323.

        Ansicht des Markt Platzes in München.

      München Geographischen Depot 1825 - Altkolorierte Original-Lithographie. Ansicht bis zum Tuscherand beschnitten. Ansicht stellenweise stockfleckig und mit einem Einriss im linken Dachbereich (4 cm) und im unteren Mittelfeld (9,5 cm). Beide Einrisse fachgerecht restauriert. Rückseitig mit montierter original Legende "Ansicht des Markt Platzes in München Zu finden im geogr. Depot in München". Dieser Zettel weist zwei Durchrisse auf. Bildmaße: 39,9 x 23,6 cm. Die Ansicht des Marktplatzes in München geht mit Blick von der Alten Hauptwache nach Osten auf die Mariensäule und das alte Rathaus mit Turm. Ganz rechts, fast schon am Bildrand, ragt der Turm der Peterskirche empor. Seltene und eine der reizvollsten Ansichten aus der frühen Folge "Zwölf Prospekte der Haupt- und Residenzstadt München". Gustav Kraus, 1804 in Passau geboren, wurde bereits 1817 in Rothenburg ob der Tauber zum Vollwaisen, worauf sein Onkel zum Vormund wurde. 1824 siedelte Gustav Kraus mit 20 Jahren nach München um, wo er bis zu seinem Tode im Jahre 1852 wohnte. "Die größte Bedeutung für die heutige Zeit liegt im Quellenwert des Werkes von Gustav Kraus. Der Bildberichterstatter war es gewohnt Gegenstände und Ereignisse genau wiederzugeben. Gerade die Authentizität, die Tatsache, dass der Käufer alles wiedererkennen konnte, was er selbst gesehen und miterlebt hatte, war der Grund für den geschäftlichen Erfolg von Gustav Kraus. Er hätte es sich zu seinen Lebzeiten kaum erlauben können, Wesentliches ungenau oder unrichtig abzubilden. So ist er heute zu einer nahezu unerschöpflichen und äußerst verlässlichen Quelle geworden. Wollen wir genauen Aufschluss über das biedermeierliche Stadtbild von München, so brauchen wir nur seine Ansichten durchzusehen" (Christine Pressler 1977, 41). Der Katalog von Christine Pressler verzeichnet diese Lithographie unter der Nr. 44. Sie bemerkt: "Die kolorierten Lithographien wurden oft bereits in der Zeit ganz knapp beschnitten und mit einem schwarzen Tuscherand versehen, so dass heute die Beschriftung fehlt, wenn sie nicht ausgeschnitten und unter dem Bild montiert wurde" (Pressler 1977, 21) oder wie in unserem Falle, auf die Rückseite montiert wurde. Gegen einen Aufpreis kann die Ansicht fachgerecht restauriert und neu montiert werden. Gerne schicken wir Ihnen weitere Fotos per email zu.

        Ohio and Indiana ... Improved to 1825

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1825. Copper-engraving with full period color. An important early mapping of Ohio and Indiana: the significant second issue, reflecting new boundaries in northern Indiana created by Indian treaties. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas , was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. The map of Ohio and Indiana originally appeared in the second part of the atlas, published in 1819. Tanner drew upon a number of important surveys, including those of Bourne, Ellicott, Volney, Darby, Kilbourn, and others. The first issue of the map is noted as being one of the earliest maps of Indiana as a state (1816). This second revised edition of the map from 1823, however, reflects the enormous changes in the region. Besides the addition of numerous counties in western Ohio, the mapping of northern Indiana changed completely following a series of Indian treaties in 1818 and 1819, including the important October 1818 Treaty of St. Mary's with the Miami. Virtually all of Indiana north of the Wabash is shown as the land of the Miami. The Delawares, who had ceded their Indiana lands in October 1818, are no longer mentioned. Several counties now appear in the state north of the 40th parallel. Other changes include the additions of many new roads, including a lengthy trail extending from Fort Wayne to Fort Dearborn. Phillips, Atlases, 3669-12 ;cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pps. 191-198; Rumsey 2755.012; cf. Sabin 94323.

        Broadside, begins: "Ministerio general del Gobierno del Estado del Salvador ... La Asamblea legislativa ... decreta. Se declara insubsistente el nombramiento de magistratado par que fue electo el Lic. Atanacio Urritia."

      In this early Salvadoran broadside the legislature nullifies the appointment of Lic. Urrutia to the Supreme Court and places Lic. Jose Felix Quiros on the bench instead. Printing seems to have arrived in El Salvador in 1825, placing this in the first decade of that art there. Apparently rare: We trace no copy via NUC Pre-1956, WorldCat, CCILA, or METABASE.

        ATLAS GÉOGRAPHIQUE, STATISTIQUE, HISTORIQUE ET CHRONOLOGIQUE DES DEUX AMÉRIQUES ET DES ISLES ADJACENTES

      Paris, 1825. Large folio. Modern half morocco and boards, vellum tipped corners. Minor soiling, some light foxing, a few repairs, very small old library mark on titlepage. Else very good. This important atlas is based on Carey & Lea's A COMPLETE HISTORICAL...AMERICAN ATLAS, issued first in Philadelphia in 1822, and again in expanded formats in 1823 and 1825. However, it adds even more material than appears in any of the Carey & Lea editions, especially the western maps. 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, with copious statistics supplied in the margins. The large map of Arkansas Territory is actually the 1823 Long map of the Great Plains and Mississippi Valley, extending as far west as Santa Fe and the edge of the Rockies, while 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.

        Essays on Landscape Gardening, and on uniting picturesque effect with rural scenery: containing directions for laying out and improving the grounds connected with a country residence

      London: Printed by S and R. Bentley for J. Taylor, 1825. Quarto. (12 3/4 x 10 inches). Half-title, uncut. 6 aquatint plates (3 hand-coloured, 3 printed in sepia [2 of these with overlays]). Original paper-covered boards, paper title label to backstrip, green morocco backed box, spine in six compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt A fine, unsophisticated copy of a beautifully illustrated work on the art of landscape gardening as practiced in England at the start of the 19th century. In the preface to the present work, Morris acknowledges his inspiration to have been the works of Humphry Repton, Uvedale Price, William Gilpin and to a lesser extent William Shenstone, William Mason, Richard Payne Knight and Thomas Whately. Taking the "instructive hints" from these disparate sources, Morris here offers essays on eight aspects that need to be considered when laying out an English country garden and estate, together with six plates that further illustrate his points. As in the works of Repton, two of the plates contain overlays showing the landscape before and after Morris's improvements. Morris, a plantsman and surveyor approaches his subject from a more detailed and practical point of view than his illustrious predecessors. For example, where Repton had suggested a hillside be moved and trees planted, Morris suggests a similar scheme but also lists the trees and shrubs which would be suitable. Given this attention to horticultural detail, it is unsurprising that Morris's other works included Flora Conspicua; a selection of the most ornamental flowering, hardy, exotic and indigenous trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, for embellishing flower-gardens and pleasure-grounds (London, 1826) and The Botanist's Manual. A catalogue of hardy, exotic, and indigenous plants, according to their respective months of flowering (London, 1824). Abbey Life 40.

        A nineteenth century album containing forty six fine watercolours

      Probably Venice, 1825. In fine condition, the watercolours well preserved and bright.. Oblong small quarto album, 185 x 275mm, containing forty-six watercolours of various sizes and shapes ranging from delicate circular vignettes to larger scenes of urban and theatrical life, elegantly bound in nineteenth-century ochre morocco with ornate gilt decoration. A beautiful suite of watercolours, including a superb series of scenes of a contemporary Venetian commedia dell'arte troupe, by the Venetian painter and engraver Novelli. Featuring images from both the stage and street-performance, each of the 46 deftly drawn images is of considerable quality. this is a rare and exceptional collection that provides a wonderful insight into Italian theatre in its golden age. Francesco Novelli (1767-1836) lived his whole life in Venice where he was best known for his vivid and imaginative book illustration. He worked on Algarotti's Opere (1791-94) with his father, beginning a long and successful career culminating in his beautiful editions of Don Quixote (1819) and Gil Blas (1820). He is also known for illustrating works such as the Fasti Veneziani (1794), hinting at his abiding interest in the theatre and the performing arts. One of his most important teachers was the French artist Vivant Denon, who visited Venice in the 1790s. Denon seems to have had a formative influence on Novelli's career, not least because he introduced his pupil to the engravings of Rembrandt, noticeably influencing his style.This album includes an incomparable collection of Novelli's watercolours, with the greatest number being piquant images of a Venetian troupe of the commedia dell'arte, with especially fine depictions of Pierrot himself, as well as other key figures such as Columbine and Harlequin. It includes a remarkable series of scenes from a stage play, as well as studies of the individual performers. Indeed, many of these images are so precisely rendered that it is almost certain that Novelli depicts a well-known troupe, perhaps one with which he was personally connected.The remaining images cover all aspects of contemporary life, including several military vignettes (perhaps scenes from the diorama) as well as charming rural scenes. Several show Novelli's work at its most sympathetic, especially in his animated studies of street vendors and town squares. It is also likely that many of these scenes derive from a period when the troupe was on the road, especially as some of the liveliest show street performers, conjurors and Punch and Judy shows. These scenes reveal Novelli at the height of his powers, especially his skill in capturing the energy and fascination of the crowds that gathered to watch the impromptu performances.Unpublished, although the compilation of the album suggests that publication might originally have been Novelli's intention. This is a superb collection of images by one of the pre-eminent artists of his generation, providing an insight into Novelli's involvement with the Venetian theatre, as well as giving a unique opportunity to study the daily life of a travelling group of European artists and musicians at the turn of the nineteenth century.Make-up of the album? three portraits of peasants:? a fishmonger with his left sleeve hanging loose? a peasant women with a cob of corn? a profile of a woman in an elaborate scarf? a uniformed cuirassier rejects the entreaty of a woman? a lively scene at the market, with a grenadier, a Pierrot, and a harlequin? a crowd gathers around a conjuror in the town square? children animatedly watch a Punch and Judy show? a street performer shows a dancing bear while an urchin shows a monkey? two small round scenes:? the first of a cavalry charge? the second a peaceful domestic scene around the hearth? an infantry charge (perhaps a real scene or a diorama)? three generations of women, interior? a lively outdoors scene of the stables? two women work inside a darkened barn? four liveried horses with a cart full of hay? two small round scenes:? a scene in the yard of a hostelry? cooking in a well-provisioned kitchen? two small square scenes:? infants and burghers at a Punch and Judy show? small children crowd around an itinerant projectionist? two small square scenes:? dancing a lively jig? the children of the house at lessons? two small square scenes:? a muzzled bear is made to dance? masked members of a commedia dell'arte troupe enjoy a repast? two small square scenes:? a corpulent gent mounts his horse? a befrocked gentleman loses his hat in an impromptu swing? two small square scenes:? a mother with swaddled child and infant greets some friends? a game of cards? two small square scenes:?

        A New General Atlas, comprising a complete set of maps, representing the grand divisions of the globe... compiled from the best authorities, and corrected by the most recent discoveries

      Philadelphia: Anthony Finley, 1825. Imperial quarto. (13 3/8 x 10 5/16 inches). Engraved throughout: title, index leaf, 58 hand-coloured, two hand-coloured engraved comparative charts of mountains and rivers. Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained half morocco, incorporating original marbled paper-covered boards, original green-toned engraved title label on upper cover, the flat spine gilt in five compartments, divided by horizontal fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment A fine copy of the second edition of this important atlas, from one of the greatest American map publishers of the period. A contemporary review of the first edition applies equally to the present second: "The number of elegant maps and atlases which have come from the press within a short time in the United States, is a most flattering proof of increased attention of the community to the important study of geography. The present work contains sixty maps, about half of which are devoted to the American continent, and the remainder to other parts of the world, chiefly to Europe. The engraving is done almost uniformly with remarkable distinctness and the face of the maps is frequently beautiful, not overloaded with a confusion of useless names" ( North American Review , July 1824, pp.261-262). Little is known of Anthony Finley, other than his published work 'but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers' (Ristow, p.268). This edition of Finley's celebrated atlas is quite rare. Not on OCLC. Cf. Phillips Atlases 4314 (another ed); cf. Ristow, p.268; cf. Rumsey, p.109 (another ed).
