About this Item

FROM THE PERSONAL LIBRARY OF SAMUEL ELIOT MORISON, with his notes. 8vo , journal extract, bound with metal clips, plain paper cover calligraphed "Agnese/Atlasses/Winsor" in Morison s hand. 372-386. Some expected edgewear; minor tears throughout, some repaired with tape. A transcription of an address on the work of Baptista Agnese, the sixteenth century s most prolific cartographer and atlas-maker. "He is generally thought to have expended more care upon the appearance of his maps than upon securing correspondence in them to the latest views. These divergences are of course most apparent in the American parts of his atlases, as it was a period necessarily of constant change in the geographical conceptions of the New World." [p. 372] This copy includes copious notes in Morison s hand. Bookseller Inventory # 14146
