Book Description [London]: Printed by I. Bowles,. and T. Bowles, 1708; sold by H. Moll. and P. Overton,.[and] I. King, [ca 1730]., 1730. 2 sheets joined, matted and framed (23 x 38 inches to the neat line; framed size: 34 x 50 inches). An engraved map of Europe, with original hand-colour in outline, the dedication to Queen Caroline within an elaborate allegorical cartouche representing the four continents, beneath her portrait, upper left, the imprint in a simple cartouche lower left, an inset showing "A New Draught of ye Artificiall Channel and other Great Works, as Dams, Locks, etc made in order to Passage of Ships thro the Rivers of Ilastra, and Camisinca" lower right, the ocean decorated with a compass rose (2 old vertical folds a bit browned). From Moll's "A Catalogue of a New and Complete set of Twenty-five Two-Sheet Maps" first published 1710-1715 and then re-issued ca 1730 with 30 maps. An attractive and detailed map of Europe, showing individual countries in outline, all major place-names, and waterways, and in particular highlighting the canal built by Peter the Great of Russia enabling boats to cross between the Caspian Sea and the Sea of Azov. When Moll first engraved this map in 1708 it was dedicated to Queen Anne (Reigned 1702 - 1714). Europe was in the grip of two great struggles: The Great Northern War (1700 1721) in which a coalition led by the Tsardom of Russia successfully contested the supremacy of the Swedish Empire in Central, Northern, and Eastern Europe; and The War of Spanish Succession (1701 1714), which was fought between the major European powers, including a divided Spain, over who had the right to succeed Charles II as King of Spain. That conflict spread to include America as Queen Anne's War (1702 1713), and was the second in a series of French and Indian Wars fought between France and England, later Great Britain, in North America for control of the continent, settled by the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. Moll emigrated to London from Germany in about 1675. By 1678 he is recorded as working for the map-maker Moses Pitt as an engraver and frequenting famous Jonathan's Coffee House, where he mingled with the likes of Daniel Defoe, Jonathan Swift, the buccaneers William Dampier and Woodes Rogers, John Oldmixon, Thomas Salmon, Samuel Simpson, and for all of whom he made maps to accompany their works. "Moll first gained notice in London in the late 1670s as a fine engraver working for map publishers such as Moses Pitt, Sir Jonas Moore, the royal hydrographer Greenville Collins, John Adair, [Jeremiah] Seller and [Charles] Price, and others. What can be identified as his two earliest maps-'America' and 'Europe' respectively-and bearing the imprint 'H. Mol schulp.' appeared in Moore's 'A New Systeme of the Mathematicks Containing a New Geography' in 1681 Moll worked increasingly independently. He published his first solo volume, the now rare 'Atlas Thesaurus' in 1695, and in 1701, by which time he worked completely on his own, he published his first major work, 'A System of Geography', an informative global geography with a full complement of crisp, straightforward maps that sold initially for 18s. a copy. Although relatively traditional and derivative, it helped to establish him as an independent geographer-cartographer. "Moll's reputation rests upon a long and extremely fertile career of almost sixty years that yielded a diverse offering of over two dozen geographies, atlases, and histories and a myriad of individual maps, charts, and globes, spanning the known earth. Through his many works, he had also had an impact beyond geography and cartography on his adopted country and its future by graphically staunchly advocating early British expansion and empire" (Dennis Reinhartz for DNB).

Book Description 1730. London, John Bowles, Thomas Bowles, Philip Overton & John King, c.1730. Original colour with additions. Two sheets conjoined, total 595 x 975mm. Some restoration to binding folds. Moll's large map of Europe, dedicated to Queen Caroline, queen consort of King George II, whose portrait appears in the title/dedication cartouche along with allegorical figures representing the four continents. Despite the date of 1708 in the imprint, Caroline became queen in 1727. In the original state the portrait and dedication was to Queen Anne. Bottom right is a inset map showing the canal built by Peter the Great of Russia enabling boats to cross between the Caspian Sea and the Sea of Azov. There must have been considerable interest from speculators for Moll to have included this. Seller Inventory # 12122

Book Description Sold by H. Moll over against Deverux Court on the Strand, London, 1715. Copper-engraving, with period outline hand-colouring, on two joined sheets, overall size 41 1/2 x 24 7/8 inches. Expert restoration to the upper left side north of Lake Huron. Rare issue of the famous Beaver map: Stevens & Tree's first state. "One of the first and most important cartographic documents relating to the dispute between France and Great Britain over boundaries separating their respective American colonies . The map was the primary exponent of the British position during the period immediately following the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713" ( Degrees of Latitude). The British colonies according to British claims are outlined in red, with the French outlined in yellow. All territory south of the St. Lawrence River and eastern Great Lakes is shown as British. Numerous notations relating to territorial claims, Indian tribes, the fur trade, and the condition of the land cover the face of the map. This map shows the early eighteenth century postal routes in the British colonies, and is frequently called the first American postal map. There are four insets, including a large map of coastal South Carolina, and a plan of Charleston. At lower left is a map of Florida and the Deep South, which is based on a map by Thomas Nairne, the Indian agent for South Carolina. The most striking feature is the large vignette which gives the map its popular name. It consists of an early view of Niagara Falls, with a colony of beavers at work in the foreground. Pritchard holds that the beaver "was an appropriate image for the North American map for two reasons: the animal's importance to the fur trade, and its industrious nature." This issue corresponds to Stevens and Tree's first state, but research by Ed Dahl of Quebec comparing the shape of Nova Scotia on two early issues indicate that this would be the 2nd state of six.
