A Treatise on the Construction of Maps;: JAMIESON (Alexander)

About this Item: and their Various Practical Relations to Mathematical Geography Deduced and explained., First Edition, complete with 20 engraved plates, xv, 187pp 8vo, an excellent copy in modern half cloth, London, Law, 1814. Photograph available on request. Jamieson was a noted cartographer and produced "A Celestial Atlas: Comprising A Systematic Display of the Heavens in a Series of Thirty Maps Illustrated by Scientific Description of their Contents, And accompanied by Catalogues of the Stars and Astronomical Exercises. It was published in 1822. The atlas includes 30 plates, 26 of which are constellation maps with a sinusoidal projection. Some of the plates are hand-coloured. The atlas includes a then-new, now-obsolete constellation Noctua, Norma Nilotica, and Solarium. Two celestial hemispheres of the atlas are centered on the equatorial poles via polar projection and geocentric alignment. The atlas comprises stars visible only to the naked eye, making it less cluttered.Unlike Johann Elert Bode and Jean Nicolas Fortin, who followed John Flamsteed s depictions of the constellations, Jamieson allowed himself greater artistic expression. The constellation figures in Jamieson's atlas are more realistically drawn, particularly compared to Flamsteed s depictions of Lacerta, Lynx, Cancer, Scorpius and Canis Major. At the same time the atlas' plates were made at the size of those by Bode and Fortin, at approximately 9 in × 7 in (22.5 × 17.5 cm), with the same number of them (26 plus hemispheres) and each covering the same area of sky. Jamieson also followed Bode s approach of drawing boundary lines between constellations. The atlas was popular and was allowed to be dedicated to King George IV." - Wikipedia.

About this Item: Unpublished, Glasgow, 1904. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. [ff] 50. Album of signatures and sketches collected on ocean cruises including two sketches by American artist Lester George Hornby. Owned by the Glasgow-born doctor Alexander Jamieson, the signatures and sketches were collected during a series of ocean cruises onboard SS Circassia (1904) a trans-atlantic trip aboard SS Parisian (1906) and SS Laurentian (1907). Hornby contributed two sketches on board SS Parisian, the first from July 16 1906 of a judge and the second a comical barrister, 'Council [sic] for the Defence' with a speech bubble:'Have a wee half M'Lord', signed the same day. Hornby (1882-1956) trained at Rhode Island School of Design and the Art Students League in New York whence he travelled to Paris and received his first international recognition in Paris in the prestigious Salon d'Automne of 1907, spending most of his productive years in France, returning intermittently to America. In his final years, he played an active role as teacher and artist in the Rockport art colony. The album is bound in pretty floral cloth covered boards with functional clasp, bookplate and Jamieson's library stamp: 'Dr Alex Jamieson No. [manuscript] 658 Burnside'. The signatures for SS Circassia begin with 'Gerard Christian Capt 2/ Alexandra Princess of Wales own (Yorkshire Reg.t) S.S. Circassia 27.4.04'. A further 30 signatures appear from this voyage including several Bombay District police, an Egyptian doctor etc. The SS Parisian voyage yields the bulk of the American signatures including 'Hugh Gillespie, Hanover club. Brooklyn' and of course 'Lester G Hornby American Ex-Co.' J K Bounell of Palo Alto adds a sketch a confrontation with an angry whale.
