Book Description Caldell & Davies, London, 1811. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 18 1/8 x 39 1/4". This lovely map reflects early 19th-century European knowledge of the continent of Africa. Towns and ports are labeled, and the map is annotated throughout with references to local tribes. Relief is shown by hachures, particularly at the Kong Mountains, which, according to the map, are "supposed to extend across the continent." Below are areas labeled "Unknown Parts." The island of Madagascar appears in sharp relief at the lower left of the map, right above the title and scale. The map is in good condition with some wear to the center fold. Slight tears and chips in the margin not affecting the image. John Pinkerton (1758-1826) was a prominent English mapmaker known for his large and impeccably detailed maps. In this manner, his work marks a turning point from the earlier emphasis on decoration toward a greater emphasis on information. This map is a fine example of his work. Seller Inventory # 234964

Book Description Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, London, 1814. Frontispieces & Plates. 2 vols. 4to. Pinkerton's collection of voyages was published over the course of six years in a total of seventeen volumes. The six volumes devoted to Europe comprise the largest section of the collection. They are "of great value for its texts, which are sometimes given entire and sometimes abridged, with as much as possible of the traveler's own language" (Hill). Pinkerton was something of a character. Having apprenticed to an Edinburgh solicitor, upon the death of his father and receipt of his inheritance, he immediately turned his back to a legal career and dedicated himself to literary matters. Through his works as a historian, poet and playwrite, he made friendships with the likes of Horace Walpole, Walter Scott and Edward Gibbon and through his controversial religious views and short temper he eventually lost them. Recently bound in half brown calf and marbled boards, spine labels gilt. Ex-library with small perforated stamp on title pages, some browning of leaves. A very attractive set Frontispieces & Plates. 2 vols. 4to. Seller Inventory # 54002
