Item Description: [London: Christopher Saxton, 1579]., 1579. Folio (17 4/8 x 12 inches). Letterpress index, double-page engraved plate showing coats of arms and a table of counties in full contemporary hand-colour, 35 double-page engraved maps (Yorkshire folding), after Saxton by Hogenberg, Lenaert Terwoot, Cornelis de Hooghe, Augustine Ryther, Francis Scatter, and Nicholas Reynolds, (lacking engraved frontispiece showing Queen Elizabeth, maps of Cornwall and Yorkshire replaced with maps from Philip Lea edition of Saxton ca.1689), extra-illustrated with 4 additional maps tipped in (see below), all but 3 maps in FINE FULL CONTEMPORARY HAND COLOUR (Cornwall and additional map of Buckingham plain, Yorkshire in contemporary outline colour) (some minor mostly marginal soiling, map of Norfolk browned, one or two early repairs to folds on verso). Contemporary limp vellum (stained, nearly detached, lacking two pairs of leather ties). Provenance: Early annotations indicating ownership by the Stanley family, the Earls of Derby, and owners of Macclesfield Castle in the 16th-century; 19th-century North Library bookplate of the Earls of Macclesfield on the front paste-down dated 1860, discreet blind-stamp on first two pages. First edition, with nine maps bearing Seckford's pre-1576 motto ("Pestis patriae pigricies"), and twenty-four 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, and the general map, Northamptonshire and Norfolk are all in the second state. The paper bears the crossed-sword watermark. The additional maps are: Seller, J. Buckinamiae comitatus vulgo Buckingham Shire. London printed and sold by Thomas and John Bowles, 1733; Boazio, B. [Irlandiae accurata descriptio.[London, 1599], left-hand sheet only; Ortelius, A. Eryn. Hiberniae Britannicae insulae. [Antwerp, 1584]; Ortelius, A. Scotiae tabula. [Antwerp, c. 1582]. The index has been annotated in a late 16th-century hand to including the additional maps of Ireland and Scotland by Ortelius, the same hand has annotated the maps of Cheshire to show Macclesfield, the map of Lancaster to show Harrington Park (owned by ancestors of the Stanley family) and directions to points of interest from Hornby, the map of Westmorland with directions to Penrith. 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 produced. Each map bears the Royal Arms as a symbol of Queen Elizabeth's supervision and endorsement. Purchased at Sotheby's sale of the Macclesfield Library, March 15, 2007. Catalogued by Kate Hunter.

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. Koeman I, Bl-42 C (not calling for the extra maps of Scotland or Ireland present here); Skelton 43. Bookseller Inventory # 2590

Item Description: Printed for the Proprietor Carington Bowles, at his Map and Print Warehouse, ., London, 1785. 4to., full contemporary calf, professionally rebacked with a new spine after the period, contemporary leather spine label. The date has been sanded off the titlepage and "1710--probably" has been written in by a contemporary hand in ink, incorrectly dating the atlas, some minor browning to the first map, some rubbing to the extremities of the binding but in fact a near fine nice example of this atlas. With 44 double-page maps, all with early outline in colour and a pale salmon wash border. The plates for this atlas were first published by Thomas Kitchin in 1767 in "Atlas Anglicanus," the maps engraved by Emanuel and Thomas Bowen. This work appeared in parts, issued monthly. There was one further edition of the Atlas before the plates were acquired by Carington Bowles in 1784. In 1785 Bowles published the above work, with a new title and with the maps heavily revised. Kitchin's imprint on all the maps has been erased, the distances have been erased being replaced by those from London to the major cities and the maps are all numbered in the upper right. This atlas published at a price of L1 16s faced stiff competition from the continued publication of the Ellis atlas and by John Cary's atlas, priced at 10s 6d and L1 10s respectively.

Item Description: 1753. atlas. London: Rocque, 1753. 8vo, later brown calf; engraved title (in English & French), folding general map, double-page general map & 52 double-page engraved maps, as called for. Good, early impressions of the maps. The only county atlas by Rocque, who was better known for his large scale surveys of cities. Most of the maps have no illustrations, but Devon has vignettes of the Eddystone Lighthouse and West Yorkshire has a view of a guillotine in use in Halifax half a century before the French Revolution. The folding general map, titled 'A Parliamentary Map of England', is a sketch-map, marking the outlines of the counties and the positions of the major towns only; however it is made more interesting by the tables, which includes the revenue of both land tax and ship tax from each county.

ROAD ATLAS made up from CARY'S NEW: CARY, JOHN.

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.

Reynold's geological atlas of Great Britain, comprising

Item Description: James Reynolds, 1863. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. 8vo (22 x 13.5 cms). [4], 16, plates, 4. Maroon embossed cloth; a decorative blind-stamped border on both boards, lettering in gilt on the upper board and blind-stamped on the lower board; the spine blank. Most of the book consists of hand-coloured maps, the maps numbered but the pages unpaginated. A key to the colours (each of which has its own number or letter) precedes the explanatory text; four page publisher's catalogue at the end. Not dated. The first edition of Reynolds's Geological Atlas was published in 1860. A revised edition was published in 1864. A study of the maps in the present volume suggest that it was issued later than the 1860 edition but earlier than the 1864 edition. I would be happy to provide my reasons for reaching this (tentative) conclusion to anyone who might be interested. CONDITION: The spine faded; the lower board faded to the outline of an adjacent volume; the upper board has a small (13 x 4 mm) dark stain; both boards somewhat bumped at the corners; otherwise externally good. Internally the endpapers seem newer than the text block and the rear paste-down is crinkling away from the board in places: perhaps the book has been re-cased, using the original covers; the book has a tighter feel than would be expected in a book of this age. I cannot find any obvious sign that the text block has been re-trimmed. There is a small crack between the key page and the first page of text, and a narrow strip of what looks like adhesive on either side: whether this is the result of re-casing or whether something has been removed (although there appears to be no missing matter) I cannot tell. There is foxing on the first three leaves; none elsewhere. There is a 2 cm closed tear on the left hand leaf of map 14 (Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire) which just touches the double-ruled border but does not impinge on the map or the text.
