Description:

A. F. Busching. A New System of Geography. Lon: A. Millar in the Strand, 1762, 1st. English edition, six volumes. *** An extraordinary effort by this German geographer to give as thorough a description as was possible, at that time, of the various empires, kingdoms, countries, federations, dukedoms, etc. in 18th. century Europe. The first edition was published in German and consisted of eight volumes. The English edition was produced in six volumes. Busching claimed to have started from scratch in writing his Geography in order to avoid errors and omissions made by his predecessors in the same field. The descriptions are extensive and very detailed for both the physical and cultural landscapes, sometimes almost bewildering so to the modern reader. As an historical research tool this set has few if any equals. *** With thirty-three (33) copperplate engraved folding maps, each with a decorative cartouche. All the maps were done by the English cartographer Thomas Kitchin. *** Volume I (xlviii, 668 pp) contains the following Utility of Geography; Introduction to Geography; Physical Geography; Measurements; Denmark; Norway; Kingdom of Sweden; Russian Empire; Prussia; Poland, Lithuania, Polish Prussia, and Courland. With two (2) folding maps of Europe (N & S) in front, and folding maps of Denmark; Norway; Sweden; Russia in Europe; Russian Empire [Europe & Asia]; Prussia; Poland *** Volume II (vi, 609 pp) contains Kingdom of Hungary; Transylvania; Hungarian Illyricum [Sclavonia, Croatia, & Dalmatia]; Turkey in Europe; Portugal; Spain; France. With folding maps of Hungary; Turkey in Europe; Portugal; Spain; France. *** Volume III (viii, 816 pp) contains Italy; Island and Kingdom of Sardinia; Kingdom of Naples; Kingdom of Sicily; Kingdom of Great Britain; Principality of Wales; Scotland; Kingdom of Ireland; United Netherlands; United Cantons, or Swisserland [sic]. With folding maps of Sardinia, Sicily, & Naples; England & Wales; Scotland; Ireland; United Netherlands; Swisserland. *** Vol. IV (iv, 592 pp) contains The Empire of Germany; Kingdom of Bohemia; Marquisate of Moravia; Austrian Silesia; Marquisates of Lusatia; Circle of Austria; Circle of Burgandy; Circle of Westphalia; Electoral Rhenish Circle. With folding maps of Empire of Germany [2]; Bohemia & Moravia; Circle of Austria; Circle of Burgandy; Circle of Westphalia; Upper & Lower Rhenish Circles. *** Volume V (viii, 680 pp) continues with Germany and contains Circle of the Upper Rhine; Circle of Swabia; Circle of Bavaria; Circle of Franconia; Circle of Upper Saxony; etc. With folding maps of Circle of Swabia; Circle of Bavaria; Circle of Franconia; Circle of Upper Saxony. *** Volume VI completes Germany with The Uckermark; Circle of Lower Saxony; Dutchy of Silesia. With folding maps of Circle of Lower Saxony; Dutchy of Silesia. *** Bound in full brown calf with stamped gilt design on borders of all covers. Spines have five raised bands with gilt rule in compartments, gilt lettering in two compartments. All hinges are cracked with covers still firmly attached. Some spine ends are chipped, and the leather on the spines has some crackling. Some covers have scuffs and/or gouges, but nothing traumatic. *** The last page and back free end paper of Vol. II are missing the bottom 1/3, which was torn off with no loss of wording. In Vol. IV the first two leafs (4 pp) of the Table of Contents is missing. Otherwise, the contents are complete in good bindings, almost totally clean with a few pages having some spotting in margins which does not affect the text. The two folding maps of Europe have a lot of wrinkles, otherwise the maps are in pristine condition. Some volumes have an armorial bookplate on the front marbled end paper. An impressive, handsome set that has aged gracefully. *** Each book is 10.5 inches tall by 8.5 inches. The books are heavy and will require additional shipping charges. Bookseller Inventory #
