Contemporary English paneled calf (expertly rebacked to style, corners strengthened); modern brown cloth clamshell box. Provenance: Early ownership inscription of William Watson beneath Norden's dedication, and copious notes and tables in his hand on the front endpapers dated 1674. First edition. The frontispiece is in the usual second state (with the Queen's skirt displaying less elaborate jewellery and the folds falling naturally about her knees) with fourteen maps bearing Seckford's pre-1576 motto ("Pestis patriae pigricies"), and twenty his later motto ("Industria naturam ornate"), the index is in the fourth setting with a four-line heading and three columns, there are eighty-three coats of arms and one blank, the title-page and all maps bear the lozenge of small circles watermark, known as the grapes watermark, the letterpress table of counties bears the crossed arrows watermark. In a long note opposite the title-page Watson has written a brief history of his family and their property of the Manses of Santon and Kennington each about ten miles from Lincoln: "both wh[ich] man[ses] belong to the heirs of John Watson in the right of their Mother Bridget the daughter of Samuel Langford & Honora the daughter of Sir David Watkings to whom this Manse did belong". Christopher Saxton, widely considered the father of British cartography, was the first mapmaker to comprehensively survey the counties of England and Wales. The map of the entire country was the earliest large-scale representation of England and the regional maps were, in many cases, the first for their respective areas. Published in a magnificent volume in 1579, his compilation was the first atlas devoted to the complete depiction of one country and formed the basis of English regional mapping for more than a century. Saxton grew up in Dunningly, Yorkshire and received his early training in surveying from the town vicar, John Rudd. Educated at Cambridge, Saxton's abilities caught the attention of Thomas Seckford, Royal Surveyor to the Queen. At this time, state officials were beginning to realize the political and administrative advantage of accurate maps, while public interest in cartography was in the midst of a dramatic surge. Largely in response to these factors, Queen Elizabeth charged Seckford with the task of procuring an atlas of England and Wales. An unprecedented standard of accuracy was achieved and in keeping with the Queen's intention that the atlas be a symbolic statement of national prominence, all care was taken to ensure that it was also beautifully pro.

Item Description: Amsterdam, 1648. Folio. (20 ¾ x 13 inches). French text, letterpress title on slip within hand-coloured engraved architectural border, heightened in gilt, 60 engraved general and county maps (59 double page) including general maps of Scotland and Ireland preceded by a printed divisional half-title (not called for in the index at end), all finely coloured by a contemporary hand, 71 illustrations (3 hand-coloured). Contemporary red morocco, paneled in gilt with fillets and decorative rolls, the inner panel with elaborate blocked cornerpieces of stylized scrolling foliage, a blocked central oval of scrolling flowers and foliage enclosing a small blank oval, the spine gilt in eight compartments with raised bands, each compartment with a central rose flower-head tool and a small flower-spray tool at each corner, green cloth ties, gilt edges, modern tan cloth box, brown morocco lettering-piece. An unrecorded variant edition of Blaeu's atlas of England and Wales, in a magnificent contemporary red morocco binding. The fifty-eight maps normally found in the French editions are supplemented by an appendix with a half-title and two new maps. These new maps are general maps of Scotland and Ireland, which were the first two maps completed for Blaeu's atlas of Scotland. The forthcoming publication of the Scotland atlas is announced on the half-title, but it did not appear on the market until 1654 (as volume 5 of the Theatrum ). Neither Koeman nor Skelton mention a French edition with this appendix, which is normally found in the Dutch-text edition of 1647 (Koeman B145B). The ephemeral nature of this edition is confirmed by the fact that the supplement is not mentioned in the index at the end. The present atlas is volume four of the six-volume French text edition of the Theatrum (or Théâtre du Monde ). The volumes of the Theatrum were published separately from 1635 to 1655. Volume 4 was introduced with French text in 1645. In its completed form, the Theatrum was the finest and most accurate atlas yet to have been published.

Item Description: Printed for Lackington Allen & Co., Temple of the Muses Finsbury Square,, London, 1806. Luffman's rare pocket atlas of England and Wales Second edition (180 by 110 mm), title, 55 engraved maps, with fine original hand colour, each map circular with explanatory text below, apart from the folding map of England and Wales, original red half-calf over blue marbled paper boards, with publisher's label. Rare. Luffman's unusual miniature atlas of England and Wales, with each county depicted within a circular frame.In the text below each circular map, Luffman supplies the reader with the usual geographical information; length and breadth of each county, its divisions by hundreds number of towns, parishes, houses, and population. However, Luffman goes further than most and states the relative quality of the air and soil. The air in Bedfordshire, we are informed, is "mild and salubrious", but in Radnorshire it is "sharp and piercing". Luffman concludes each county with details on their arable state and principal areas of production. Cheshire, for example, is famed for its "vast quantities of cheese.London alone, it is said, takes 15,000 tons annually"; Derbyshire has "a fine manufacture of porcelain"; and in Worcester, "the manufactures of gloves, and the softer leathers, are here in the highest degree of perfection".

Item Description: Published by J.Cary, Engraver and Map-seller, No.181 Strand, London. [imprint at foot of map section [4]]., 1816. First edition. 4to. 6 inches x 8.5 inches. 64 folded, coloured, map sections + Index to the Ordnance Survey of Great Britain + France divided into Departments. Bound in full original diced calf, blind stamped boards, gilt. Spine divided into compartments by gilt bands with blind stamped patterns and gilt decorations. Marbled endpapers. Extremities rubbed and joints and hinges weak at front. Some browning and foxing inside but engraved surfaces of maps generally clean and fine. Armorial bookplate of Frederick Bowman on front paste-down. This early form of road atlas has been compiled by cutting out suitable size map sections from Cary's New Map of England and Wales. and binding them up into a smaller and more portable format. The addition of the Ordnance Survey map index to southern Britain does not of course provide a workable key to Cary's maps. The added map of France may be that published by R. Wilkinson, London in 1793, showing the newly formed departments formed out of the old provinces of France by the revolutionary government. The atlas could be used in conjunction with Cary's Traveller's Companion: or, a Delineation of Turnpike Roads (first published 1790). John Cary (1755-1835), cartographer, engraver and publisher, operating in the private sector, was one of the most influential map makers of his day: 'Cary's maps show a marked improvement on all previous productions, the engraving being remarkably clear and distinct' (Chubb). His set of county maps, Cary's New and Correct English Atlas, was first published in 1787 and went into at least nine editions. TOPOGRAPHY MAPS TOPOGRAPHY COPAC (original map 2nd edn. only) Chubb.
