First edition in English, "English'd, and Adorn'd with above a hundred several sculptures, by John Ogilby Esq; Master of His Majestie's Revels in the Kingdom of Ireland." First published as "Gedenwaerdige Gesantschappen der Oost-Indische Maetschappy in't Vereenigde Nederland aen de Kaisaren van Japan" published in Amsterdam in 1669, a year earlier in Amsterdam. An attractive copy of Montanus's rich cornucopia of accounts from emissaries of the Dutch East India Company, with an AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED BY THE TRANSLATOR JOHN OGILBY TO THE FIRST EARL OF SHAFTESBURY, THE LORD ASHLEY, dated October 15th 1670, laid down on the front paste-down: Received of the Right Honourable the Lord Ashley by the hand of Mr. Tho: Stimpson the fund of four pounds ten shillings being [some words obscured by Ogilby] for the 2 first volumes of my English Attlas, that is to say Affrica & Japan.

In 1663 Ashley was one of the eight Lords Proprietors given the title to a large tract of land in North America that became the Province of Carolina. With Locke he co-wrote the "Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina" in 1669. "Exceedingly rare. The plates to this work represent a high-water mark in book illustrations of the 17th century.

Item Description: Printed by the Author, London, 1671. Folio. Title printed in red and black. Engraved frontispiece, 56 maps, plates and portraits (6 single-page portraits, 31 double-page or folding views and plans, 19 folding maps), 66 engraved in text illustrations. Expert restoration to the map of Carolina and the list of plates. Nineteenth century smooth tan calf, arms of the Marquess of Bath on the upper and lower covers, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, tan morocco label in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt Provenance: Beriah Botfield, Marquess of Bath (gilt arms) A very fine, large copy of Ogilby's first edition of this important work: a rare issue including Moxon's First Lords Proprietors map of Carolina, the first large-format map of the newly established colony of Carolina. The work is an English translation of Arnold Montanus De Nieuwe en Onbekende Weereld, but with a number of additions concerning New England, New France, Maryland and Virginia The work is divided into three books or sections and an appendix: the first gives an overall survey of the most important voyages and expeditions to the Americas, the second book offers a description of Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, Bermuda and North America, the third deals with South America and the appendix includes a miscellany of information including notes on the 'Unknown South-Land', the `Arctick Region' and the search for the North-West passage. The present copy is unusual in that it contains the so-called Lords Proprietors map by Moxon titled A New Discription [sic.] of Carolina By Order of the Lords Proprietors - a map that was commissioned by Ogilby for this work, but which was not included in the earlier issues of the book as it was apparently not available until 1672. The present complete copy is the second issue of the first edition, without the Arx Carolina plate or the Virginia pars Australis & Florida map, but with the Lord Proprietors map and a map of Barbados, and retaining the first issue list of plates. The first three issues of the first edition are as follows: 1. dated 1671, with both the Arx Carolina plate and the Virginia pars Australis map 2. dated 1671, with the Lord Proprietors map of Carolina map replacing both the Arx Carolina plate and the Virginia pars Australis map, with the addition of a map of Barbados, with the plate list as in the first issue still listing Arx Carolina and Virginia pars Australis but not listing the Lords Proprietors Carolina or Barbados 3. dated 1671, the plates as the second issue, but with a reset, cancel list of plates that no longer includes either Arx Carolina or Virginia pars Australis The Moxon map is the first large format map of the newly established colony of Carolina, preceded only by the much smaller and relatively simple maps by Robert Horne (1666), John Lederer (1672) and Richard Blome (1672). The Ogilby-Moxon map, published to promote colonization in the region, would come to be known as The First Lords Proprietors Map, with a second Lords Proprietors Map appearing in 1682. The map covers the region of North and South Carolina from the James River in present-day Virginia to St. Augustine in present-day Florida and includes an inset of the site of Charleston on the Ashley and Cooper Rivers. Cartographic elements include sea banks or shoals, soundings, some topographical details, degrees of latitude, compass rose, scale, and location of rivers and settlements. Recently established counties in the Carolinas are shown here for the first time. Decorative cartouches include scenes with native Americans wearing furs and feathered headdresses, and holding spears, club, and bow. Prior to this map, only the small map by Robert Horne of 1666 had focused on the Colony. Moxon's map was a significant improvement over the Horne map, both in size and the accuracy of its depiction of the Colony. The Albermarle and Pamlico Sounds are corrected, based upon information from and unknown source. The Cape Fear region is drawn from Horne's map. Bookseller Inventory # 31668

Item Description: London: Tho. Johnson for the author, 1671., 1671. Folio. (16 3/8 x 10 3/8 inches). Letterpress title-page printed in red and black. Engraved additional title-page dated 1671, four FINE double-page and folding plates, 28 double-page plates all mounted on guards, 6 single leaf plates, and 57 vignettes in the text (bound without the two maps, some plates with short, clean tears in the margins at mounts, one or two early repairs to short marginal tears, offset image of an unrelated but contemporary title-page made while the ink was still wet to page 617). Contemporary mottled calf, the spine in seven compartments, with six raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in one, the others finely decorated with small gold tools (expertly rebacked preserving the original spine, corners strengthened). Provenance: Frank Sherwin Streeter (1918-2006) (Collection of Important Navigation, Pacific Voyages, Cartography and Science), his sale 17th April 2007, lot 395. First edition in English, from works mistakenly attributed to Montanus on the title-page, but in fact a translation of Olfert Dapper's work published the year before in Dutch as "Gedenkwaerdig Bedryf der Nederlandsche Oost-Indische Maetschappye op de Kuste en in het Keizerrijk van Taising of Sina" Amsterdam: Jacob van Meurs, 1670. Clearly bound without the general map of China and one other map sometimes recorded. John Ogilby had led a full and interesting life even before began printing the famous series of travel books that bear his name, of which "America" is the second (preceded by "Africa" in.). He was an investor in the Virginia Company lottery, a reknowned dancer, even owning his own dancing school and dancing before the King, founder and managing director of the first theatre in Dublin. Ogilby only turned to publishing after an accident left him lame and he was no longer able to dance, and the rise to power of Oliver Cromwell made frivolities like dancing unfashionable.
