About this Item: London: 1768., 1768. Folio (18 x 11 4/8 inches). Letterpress preliminaries and Index at end. Engraved title-page with vignette, dedication leaf, 56 mostly double-page leaves of chronology, and 14 double-page and folding maps of the ancient and modern world engraved by Thomas Kitchin (some offsetting). Contemporary tree calf (rebacked, scuffed). Provenance: early marginal annotations; engraved armorial bookplate of T. Bigelow Lawrence on the front paste-down. First published without maps in 1756. The maps related to America are "A Map of the West Indies and Middle Continent of America" showing the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, with many forts and towns named. The British colony of Georgia extends to the Mississippi River and the Gulf Coast and its boundary with Florida is noted as Limits Stipulated 1738, leaving the Spanish colony of Florida occupying only the peninsula. A line further south is noted as the Southern Bounds [Georgia] by Charter 1665. The southern portion of Florida is shown as a collection of large islands, named Bay del Spiritu Santo. Texas is named as the New Kingdom of Leon. "A Map of North America from the Latest Surveys and Maps" shows the continent during the transitional period leading up to the American Revolution. The map shows much of the region controlled by the British after the French and Indian War. Several of the colonial charters show their boundaries extending to an indeterminate western boundary. The charter and dates are noted along the colonial boundaries, which extend through Louisiana, a Spanish possession at the time this map was made. Another important boundary is New Mexico's eastern line, which travels north along the R. Mexicano (Sabine River) before turning northwest where it intersects with North Carolina's southern border. Another important map is that of the East-Indies showing southeast Asia depicting India at a time when Britain and the East India Company were solidifying control of the subcontinent.

About this Item: Andrew Dury, London, 1777. Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Dissected into 16 sections and linen-backed as issued. Inset of the tip of Florida. Rare Revolutionary-war separate issue of Kitchen's map of North America. This map, in various forms, was issued by Kitchin following the French and Indian War and into the 1780s. Kitchin, who engraved the Mitchell map, closely follows that famed mapping, though in a reduced form. The colonies are shown from Labrador in the North to Florida in the south, and as far west as the other side of the Mississippi, which is marked "Extensive Meadows full of Buffaloes." This copy is a rare separately-issued example in case map format. A similar map by Kitchin would appear in 1780 and 1782 editions of Guthrie's New System of Modern Geography (See McCorkle 780.6), though with the inset border and cartouche changed. We find only the Clements Library copy of this rare war-dated separate issue. Not in Phillips, A List of Maps of America or McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps. Seller Inventory # 25591

About this Item: London: Robert Sayer and J. Bennett, [1782-1787]., 1787. Folio (21 x 15 2/8 inches). Letterpress title-page (spotted). 23 engraved maps on 35 mapsheets with original hand-colour in outline (some mostly marginal spotting and light soiling, occasional offsetting). Modern half calf, over contemporary marbled paper boards (boards rubbed). Provenance: with the early 19th-century ownership inscription of H. Hamilton, Blackburn Cottage at the head of the title-page; Forster family; acquired from Lepe House, by Christopher Henry Beaumont Pease, Lord Wardington (1924-2005), Library of Important Atlases and Geographies, his sale Sothebys' 10th October 2006, lot 240. One of the first atlases to reflect the many boundary changes resulting from the Peace of Versailles after it had been fully accepted by Britain and the other European powers, as well as the United States. Several maps can be joined to form large wall maps. The atlas was originally compiled by Thomas Jeffreys and first published in 1773, after his bankruptcy, by Robert Sayer as Sayer's first terrestrial atlas. Subsequently, Sayer, and from 1794 his successors Laurie and Whittle, reprinted or reissued the atlas almost annually. From the distinguished library of Lord Wardington whose collection of Atlases was unique: "a panoply of the history of cartography and of great mapmakers" (Andrew Phillips "An Appreciation", Sotheby's sale catalogue). Phillips 667 and 3522. Catalogued by Kate Hunter. Seller Inventory # 000134
