Wilkinson's General Atlas of the World - Quarters Empires Kingdoms States &C with Appropriate Tables
Robert Wilkinson, London, 1809. 2nd Edition. HARDCOVER. 2nd Edition - 'published March 1st 1809' on the title-page, dated 1814 on the contents leaf. Attractively bound in brown and dark blue marbled boards with brown calf spine and corner pieces, engraved title-page, 1 leaf text and contents, 48 hand coloured maps (2 are double page), this copy is collated complete. Each single leaf map has been neatly numbered (3 to 48) in ink in the very top right corner. There are a few pencil notes in a contemporary hand to the outer blank margins of some of the maps (easily and cleanly erased when tested) . . . . . . . . .. .CONDITION : The binding is very strong and firm, the leather just a little chipped at the spine ends and cover corner tips, there is no other wear to the boards or edges. The end-papers and title-page are mildly tanned and foxed, with a thin sliver of nicking to the lower fore-edge of the front fly-leaf and title-page. All the maps are in excellent condition with only a very little scattered foxing to a few leaves and none of which detracts. There is an almost invisible 1cm tear to the blank margin (well away from the map itself) of the map of Swabia which has been professionally repaired with archival paper, the maps are all otherwise entirely undamaged and the colouring still looks quite fresh. Overall this is an uncommonly attractive copy.. . . . . . . . . . . . NOTE Due to size and/or weight shipping to destinations outside the UK will cost more than the price shown above. Orders made by card will be completed after you have approved the extra cost. ...
