Description:

(POCKET ATLAS). American Military Pocket Atlas; Being an Approved Collection of Correct Maps, Both General and Particular, of the British Colonies; Especially Those Which Now Are, or Probably May Be the Theatre of War: Taken Principally from the Actual Surveys and Judicious Observations of Engineers.And Other Officers Employed in His Majesty's Fleets and Armies. London: Printed for R. Sayer and J. Bennet, [1776]. Titlepage, 2pp. dedication to "Gov. Pownall," 2pp. "Advertisement," 1p. "List of maps," and six engraved maps, handcolored in outline. Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Scattered minor repairs along map folds. A very good copy. The "Holster Atlas": one of the most important atlases of the American Revolution, designed for use in the field. The "Holster Atlas" was issued at the suggestion of Governor George Pownall and included the "maps that the British high command regarded as providing essential topographical information in the most convenient form" (Schwartz & Ehrenberg). This collection of maps was published by Sayer and Bennet at the beginning of the Revolution for the use of British officers. "Surveys and Topographical Charts being fit only for a Library, such maps as an Officer may take with him into the Field have been much wanted. The following Collection forms a Portable Atlas of North America, calculated in its Bulk and Price to suit the Pockets of Officers of all Ranks" (Advertisement). Although the publishers claimed the atlas would fit into an officer's pocket, it was more usually carried in a holster and thus gained its nickname. The atlas was generally bound in an octavo format, as is the case in this copy. The six maps are as follow: 1) Dunn, Samuel: NORTH AMERICA, AS DIVIDED AMONGST THE EUROPEAN POWERS. BY SAMUEL DUNN, MATHEMATICIAN. London: printed for Robt. Sayer, Jan. 10, 1774. Engraved map, handcolored in outline (13? x 18? inches). Engraved for Dunn's A NEW ATLAS (London, 1774). 2) Dunn, Samuel A COMPLEAT MAP OF THE WEST INDIES, CONTAINING THE COASTS OF FLORIDA, LOUISIANA, NEW SPAIN, AND TERRA FIRMA: WITH ALL THE ISLANDS. London: Robt. Sayer, Jan. 10, 1774. Engraved map, handcolored in outline (13? x 18? inches). Engraved for Dunn's A NEW ATLAS (London, 1774). The "Advertisement" describes these first two maps as "a.

Book Description Pranava Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1776 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Language: eng 61 pages. Seller Inventory # 100154497165
