It is unique in its revelation of this hitherto undocumented aspect of the war, and its scathing indictment of United States postwar policies in China."

Item Description: Map. Pen and ink with watercolor. Sheet measures 7 x 8.75" This simple hand colored schoolgirl or schoolboy manuscript map depicts France divided into territories. Color-coded in shades of gray, the map is largely unlabeled except for a few islands and the surrounding waters identified. The Pyrenees mountains along the border of Spain and France are rendered in a delightful furry manner. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the centerfold. On thin paper, with minor foxing and toning. This map dates to circa 1880 and was most likely made by a student or apprentice as training in geography, drafting, and penmanship. Manuscript map-making was a useful educational tool in the 19th century, a period of imperialism and increased world trade in which geography grew significantly as a field of study. In the United States and northwestern Europe, reform movements that sought to improve the quality and accessibility of childhood education pushed for the inclusion of geography in school curricula. One common method of teaching was the making of manuscript maps. Working from wall maps, globes, and atlases, students were made to meticulously hand-reproduce maps in pen and ink and with watercolor. Such exercises not only provided a way to review and retain geographical knowledge, but they also functioned as training in penmanship, calligraphy, and drafting. This map is a lovely document that straddles the line between art and geography. Bookseller Inventory # 267843

Item Description: Map. Pen and ink with watercolor. Sheet measures 7 x 8.5" This beautiful schoolgirl or schoolboy manuscript map of England and Wales beautifully depicts from Scotland south to the English Channel. Essentially two maps on a single sheet, the left map depicts the region with detailed topography throughout. Towns, rivers and mountains are noted with a key in the top left corner. The right hand side of the map depicts "The Saxon Heptarchy" and territories are numbered and shaded in. A key in the bottom right lists the territories numbered on the map. The Wall of Severus is identified. The speculative Wall of Severus was supposedly built by the Roman Emperor Septimius Severus as a defensive fortification, but was most likely mistaken for either the Antonine Wall or the Hardian's Wall. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold. Small stain in the bottom of centerfold. Minor toning and foxing with some edge wear.

Item Description: Map. Pen and ink with watercolor. Image measures 13 x 23" This pen and ink map of Black Lake in New York State was likely produced in the mid-19th century by a student or apprentice as training in geography, drafting, and penmanship. The lake, otherwise known at Otsikwake, is located in St. Lawrence County near the Canadian border. Significant locales are labeled in a fashion redolent of printed maps of the period, yet the idiosyncratic handwriting of the mapmaker gives the map a more artistic quality. The blue wash of watercolor that colors the lake adds to the map's aesthetic qualities. The map is drawn on two pieces of paper glued together, with some red markings at the seam. It has some wrinkles and folds consistent with its hand-drawn format. Manuscript map-making was a useful educational tool in the 19th century, a period of imperialism and increased world trade in which geography grew significantly as a field of study. In the United States and northwestern Europe, reform movements that sought to improve the quality and accessibility of childhood education pushed for the inclusion of geography in school curricula. One common method of teaching was the making of manuscript maps. Working from wall maps, globes, and atlases, students were made to meticulously hand-reproduce maps in pen and ink and with watercolor. Such exercises not only provided a way to review and retain geographical knowledge, but they also functioned as training in penmanship, calligraphy, and drafting. Today, these idiosyncratic projects offer a glimpse into the way 19th-century youth engaged with the world around them. Bookseller Inventory # 255441

Item Description: Map. Pen and ink with watercolor. Image measures 18 x 12.5" This pen and ink map of Italy was produced around the middle of the 19th century, likely by a student or apprentice as training in geography, drafting, and penmanship. The relative simplicity of the map suggests that the student was working from a school atlas as opposed to a more elaborate source. Major roads, rivers, and cities are all labeled in French, but the anonymous cartographer has clearly paid more attention to correctly rendering the coastlines of the peninsula and the surrounding islands of Sardinia, Corsica, and Sicily. The railroad from Switzerland to the Mediterranean Sea is also indicated with dotted black line. The overall coloring of the map corresponds to common patterns of the day, with a spectrum of blues used to highlight the peninsula and fill the surrounding water. The most striking feature of the map, however, is likely the rendering of mountains in a light brown watercolor wash intended to mimic the subtle technique used on engraved maps of the period. A finely written title at the top is flanked by a painter's palette in a black circle on the right and the Italian flag on the left. The map is in good condition on thick Lion drawing paper. Three pinholes in the top margin with paper watermark. Manuscript map-making was a useful educational tool in the 19th century, a period of imperialism and increased world trade in which geography grew significantly as a field of study.

Item Description: Map. Pen and ink with watercolor. Image measures 7 x 8.5" This beautifully hand colored schoolgirl or schoolboy manuscript map of Canaan and Palestine (Israel or Holy Land) covers from Arish in northern Sinai north beyond Beirut. The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are included. Essentially two maps on the same sheet, the left hand map depicts the region as it existed during Biblical times, when it was called Canaan. The Twelve Tribes of Israel are identified along with ancient place names. Topography is beautifully rendered. The right hand side map covers the same region, but is not labeled except for the title 'Palestine'. Territorial divisions are color coded. The map is in good condition with vivid hand color. On thin paper, with minor foxing and toning. Top margin with some manuscript text cut off. This map dates to circa 1880 and was most likely made by a student or apprentice as training in geography, drafting, and penmanship. Manuscript map-making was a useful educational tool in the 19th century, a period of imperialism and increased world trade in which geography grew significantly as a field of study. In the United States and northwestern Europe, reform movements that sought to improve the quality and accessibility of childhood education pushed for the inclusion of geography in school curricula. One common method of teaching was the making of manuscript maps. Working from wall maps, globes, and atlases, students were made to meticulously hand-reproduce maps in pen and ink and with watercolor. Such exercises not only provided a way to review and retain geographical knowledge, but they also functioned as training in penmanship, calligraphy, and drafting. This map is a lovely document that straddles the line between art and geography. Bookseller Inventory # 267840

Item Description: Map. Pen and ink with watercolor. Image measures 18 x 12.5" This anonymous pen and ink map of the British Isles was produced around the middle of the 19th century, likely by a student or apprentice as training in geography, drafting, and penmanship. The relative simplicity of the map suggests that the student was working from a school atlas as opposed to a more elaborate source. Major roads, rivers, and cities are all labeled, but the anonymous cartographer has clearly paid more attention to correctly rendering the coastlines of Great Britain and Ireland, as well as the surrounding smaller islands. The lettering is also exquisite, as the names of Irlande and Ecosse Angleterre are written to accentuated the shape of the islands. The coloring of the map, done in watercolor, corresponds to common patterns of the day, with a spectrum of blues used to highlight the islands and fill the surrounding water. Light brown watercolor has also been artfully applied to show areas of elevation. A finely written title at the top is flanked by a painter's palette in a black circle on the right and the Red Ensign flag on the left. A decorative gold border surrounds the map. The map is in good condition. Cropped bottom margin comes right to the border of the map. Manuscript map-making was a useful educational tool in the 19th century, a period of imperialism and increased world trade in which geography grew significantly as a field of study. In the United States and northwestern Europe, reform movements that sought to improve the quality and accessibility of childhood education pushed for the inclusion of geography in school curricula. One common method of teaching was the making of manuscript maps. Working from wall maps, globes, and atlases, students were made to meticulously hand-reproduce maps in pen and ink and with watercolor. Such exercises not only provided a way to review and retain geographical knowledge, but they also functioned as training in penmanship, calligraphy, and drafting. Today, these idiosyncratic projects offer a glimpse into the way 19th-century youth engaged with the world around them. Bookseller Inventory # 251170

Item Description: Nd. [1890/1900?], 1900. sheet size: 69.5 (27.5") x 110 (43.25"), very good to fine (n12) J.R. Booth's Canada Atlantic Railroad, the worlds longest privately owned company, was sold to the Grand Trunk in 1905 for $14 million. Booth launched its construction in 1879, to speed his lumber to markets in northeastern American, via the Central Vermont Railway. The City of Ottawa thus found itself with a direct link to Boston. He later expanded the system west to Georgian Bay; this branch, which was complete in 1896, was known as the Ottawa, Arnprior and Parry Sound Railway. The whole system to Alburg, Vermont was then amalgamated as the Canada Atlantic Railway. (Trinnell. J.R. Booth). Book. Bookseller Inventory # 30188
