About this Item: Map Collector Publications, Tring, 1992. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 251 pages with frontispiece, maps, facsimiles, plates (many in color), bibliography, catalog of maps and indices. Folio (12" x 9 1/2") bound in original publisher's green cloth with gilt lettering to spine in original pictorial jacket with original advertisement laid in. First edition limited to 750 copies of which this is number 68. The eighteenth century was an important period fro the history of French cartography; the accurate determination of longitude and the mapping of France by triangulation, were important milestones. In addition, the voyages of discovery in the Pacific were a welcome stimulus to geographical and catrographical argument and progress. Through her own original research, Mary Pedley examines how Giles Robert and Didier Robert de Vougondy both contributed to and benefited from this geographically fertile time and the dynamic intellectual dialogue of the group of scholar geographers at the royal Academy of Sciences. Within the context of this rational though, map making had moved beyond the time when it was a work combining the skills of imagination and interpretation; accuracy and usefulness had become the key concerns, and the world was deemed mappable by meas of measurement, logic, and the careful analysis of sources. The Vaugondys proved themselves to be true scions of the "positive" geography of their time, making their contribution to the eighteenth century world of cartography intellectual as well as commercial. Initially, it was a fortuitous bequest, and the fame of the name Sanson that brought success to the map business that flourished in the Paris of the mid-eighteenth century. The Vaugondys, however, were keen that although utility should be empathized, it should not be at the expense of beauty. Thus Bel et Utile emerged as the twin ideals o their productions, and the name Vaugondy earned respect in its own right. While analyzing the success and breadth of the Vaugondy geographical work, which ranged from atlases and maps to globes, book illustrations, innovative projections and even new stands for globes, Pedley ensures that this is anything but a dry reference volume by coloring the background with lively details o the personal life and financial fortunes and misfortunes of the family. This scholarly and attractive work is illustrated with many maps, portraits and related material. In addition to the valuable historical, biographical and background research, published here for the first time, Pedley has prepared the first comprehensive catalog of Vaugondy production, including maps, atlases and globes. The extensive bibliography completes what must be the definitive work of reference on the Vaugondy family, for specialist, scholar and collector. Condition: Previous owner's notes and catalog laid in else a near fine copy in like jacket. Seller Inventory # E0526a
