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: Published by Huntington and Savage, 216 Pearl St.,, New York:, 1835. Imperial 4to. 16 x 14 in. [10 leaves], 8 engraved plates (2 double-page, 7 hand-coloured (minor foxing, edgewear, faint tidemark to lower margin of first few leaves)). Original printed yellow softcovers, mounted on thicker paper stock, cover art woodcut of astronomer gazing at the stars w/ telescope, testimonials printed on back cover (soiling, edgewear, rubbing, tide-mark to lower margin, bumping to corners, pencil drawings by child on verso of some plates trying to reproduce some of the figures), still G copy. First edition, thus, stated "New Edition," which in actuality was an updated and revised edition with new engraved plates executed by W.G. Evans of New York (fl. 1830-1845), who also engraved the famed Map of Lewis & Clark's Track Across the Western Portion of North America in 1842, revised by Archibald M'Vickar. Burritt (1794-1838), an American astronomer and mathematician created his textbook and the later atlas as a low-cost alternative to celestial globes which were often too expensive for many schools in Jacksonian America. The atlas could be purchased for $ 1.25 at the time, and the Geography of the Heavens textbooks, and Atlases would prove immensely popular in classrooms up until 1876. Adapting most of his constellation figures from Alexander Jamieson's A Celestial Atlas (1822), Burritt included a plan of the Solar System, Celestial maps of the skies in January-March, October-December, April-June, July-September, South Pole, North Pole, and Planisphere of the Whole Heavens on Mercator's Projection. This was the last decorative celestial reference in the 19th century, and even served as inspiration of H.P. Lovecraft who notes it as prized possession in letter to Maurice Moe in 1915. See: Kidwell, Elijah Burritt and the Geography of the Heavens, Sky & Telescope, Vol. 69, January (1985), pp. 26-28; Boston University Art Gallery, Celestial Images: Antiquarian Astronomical Charts and Maps from the Mendillo Collection (2005), 75.
