The Military Antiquities of the Romans in: Roy, William ;

About this Item: the Society of Antiquaries of London, London, 1793. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. [8] + xvi + 206 + [2] pp. + 51 plates (50 engraved). Original full leather tree-calf binding and endpapers; running floral gilt swag borders on covers; the spine has gilt chevron rulings to both edges and 7 fields; 6 with urned foliage and sea creatures; one with black label with gilt title and all with ornate framed foliage motifs top and bottom. Elephant folio (55x 38cm; approx. 22x 15 ins.). The binding is generally very good but with rubbing and slight abrasions on all edges, corners slightly bumped, one or two very small areas of loss. The prelims. have a 6x6cm stain top and bottom, close to the hinge and the ffep has a taped repair.Internally the pages are very bright with isolated foxing spots. . All plates are present, many have tanning on the margins. No.35 is a 6-panel fold-out, with tanning extending into some areas of some panels but with no loss of detail. Major-General William Roy FRS, FSA (1726 -1790) was a Scottish military engineer and surveyor, charged with building roads and forts in the highlands of Scotland after 1745, to prevent another Jacobite rising. He noticed traces of well-planned camps, which he correctly attributed to the Romans. As Surveyor General he returned to Scotland in 1765 and surveyed all the Roman military sites he could find, with the scientific accuracy for which he was famed. As many have now disappeared under roads, buildings and the plough, this book is a valuable historical resource. Roy related the various sized camps to the writings of Polybius and decided that the invasion of Scotland by Agricola was the source of all these military works. His drawings and surveys remain unsurpassed to the present day, although his historical assumptions, based on the forgery 'De Situ Britanniae' are now discredited. He was a great advocate of the foundation of the Ordnance Survey founded the year after he died and his 'Military Antiquities' was published two years later. Seller Inventory # 63825

About this Item: London: Robert Morden and Thomas Cockerill, 1688., 1688. 4to., (7 6/8 x 6 inches). General title-page printed in red and black, and preliminaries including "an Introduction" from the complete volume; followed by pages 511-596 which concern only America (one or two early repairs in the gutter, top corner of page 585 torn with loss affecting the letterpress, some browning and one or two pale stains). 17 engraved maps of the Americas, including the supplemental map and description of "Bermudas" after page 544. Modern FINE binding by Trevor Lloyd to a period English style. The American section of Morden's celebrated first atlas, first published in 1680 with 62 maps. The fine maps are very similar in style to the work of Herman Moll, whose earliest known work was for Moses Pitt in 1678, and may well have been engraved by him. Including a general map of America (Burden's third state) showing California as an island, but otherwise without much definition: "a natural antipathy to the French is reflected in the sole allusion being the identification of 'Quebec'. All of the major English colonies of the day are identified including 'N. Scotland' or Nova Scotia. The Spanish are treated with a little more courtesy and are granted the entire territory west of the Mississippi River. California is depicted as an island and the sole name provided is the location of Sir Francis Drake's landing in 1579" (Burden 519). The other sixteen regional maps of the Americas, all in Burden's second state, are: Terra Magellanica; Paraguay; Brazile; Castilla del Or Guiana, Peru; The Western Islands; Jamaica; Barbados; Barmudas; Mexico, New Spaine; Mexico - showing California as an Island; Florida and the Great Lakes of Canada; Carolina; Virginia; Jarsey and Pensilvania; New England and New York; and The Northwest Part of America", in which the Great Lakes are clearly visible, was originally the first of the regional maps of America in the 1680 edition of "Geography Recitified", the title derived from the search for the Northwest Passage to Asia from Europe. Burden 519 - 524; Sabin 50535; Wing M-2620. Catalogued by Kate Hunter. Seller Inventory # 72lib636

Geography Rectified: or, a Description of the: MORDEN, Robert

About this Item: Morden and Cockerill, London, 1688. Condition: very good(+). Second. Lovely miniature world atlas with rubricated title page. Includes 76 maps plus 2 bonus maps not listed in the index: Armenia and a hand colored Bermuda map. The first 17 maps plus Jamaica, Chili, and Japan with early crude but pleasing color with some bleed through to verso. The maldives map and Asia map are printed upside down although surrounding text on these pages is printed correctly. Small 4to, full contemporary leather with hand tooled design, first fly leaf added, corners worn and strengthened, covers re-enforced with new hinges. The maps in Robert Morden's atlas "Geography Rectified" are some of the first miniature maps engraved and published in England. Produced in 1688, the atlas is noted and valued for its maps of the British colonies, which Morden produced to fulfill the growing demand for colonial information that accompanied the settlements' increasing prosperity. Today, these colonial maps are some of the earliest such maps obtainable. Morden's detailed work shows his debt not only to British cartographic precedent, but also to French maps of this period, which pursued a comparable interest in the burgeoning New World. Robert Morden (c.1650-1703) was a geographer, publisher, bookseller, and globe maker who collaborated with many other publishers in particular Thomas Cockerill to produce high quality atlases (Burden 519-524).
