Item Description: to be solde by Roger Rea the Elder and younger at the Golden Crosse in Cornhill against the Exchange, [London], 1665. Double-page engraved map, fine contemporary outline hand colour, upper left and right margins skilfully repaired, margins reinforced with japanned paper. The map bears the imprint of Roger Rea the Elder and Younger. The Reas had purchased the rights to Speed's work form William Garrett in 1589, who had previously purchased them from the widow of William Humble in the same year. Skelton suggests that the father and son intended a new edition of the atlas for the Restoration, of 1660. However, the atlas would appear not to have been published until 1665. This is borne out by an advertisement in the Term Catalogue by the subsequent owners of the plates, Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell, in 1675:"Mr John Speed's. Geography of the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland. together with his Prospect. all in one entire Volume, hath been, for seven Years past, out of Print, the greatest part of an Impression, then newly Printed, being destroyed by the late dreadful Fire, 1666". This is borne out by the rarity of the Rea edition of the atlas. There is evidence that they planned an edition of 1666, as there are impressions of Sussex, Buckingham and Derby, with Rea's imprint, which bear that date. Rea would later sell the plates to Bassett and Chiswell, who would publish a new edition in 1676. Bookseller Inventory # 1792

Item Description: c. 1700, 1700. Sin Encuadernar. Book Condition: Muy bien. 59 x 91 cm. Detallado mapa a gran escala de las colonias británicas en Norteamérica, publicado por Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) y atribuido en el título al cartógrafo francés Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667). Está inspirado en el excepcional New Map of the English Empire In America, de Robert Morden-Brown, el cual fue publicado por primera vez alrededor de 1698 en Londres. Mortier era un exitoso editor de libros y mapas establecido en Amsterdam, quien reconocía la superioridad de la cartografía francesa de la época. Tuvo conocimiento y acceso a los mapas de Sanson, los cuales eran publicados en París por Jaillot desde 1681. Algunos de ellos fueron vueltos a grabar y republicar por Mortier. Esta interesante Carte Nouvelle apareció con los dos folios unidos en su afamado Neptune François, y en hojas separadas en el Atlas nouveau des cartes marines. Representa la costa este de Estados Unidos y Canadá, desde Florida y el Golfo de México hasta Labrador, la Bahía de Hudson y Groenlandia más al norte. Hacia el occidente llega hasta el Río Mississippi. Abarca los actuales territorios de Canadá, Nueva Inglaterra, Nueva York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Carolina del Norte, Carolina del Sur, Florida, entre otros. Entre muchas características notables de este mapa, se encuentra el hecho de ser el primer plano impreso de una ciudad colonial británica en un mapa que no es inglés. Al respecto, incluye un recuadro sin título del puerto de Boston, que a su vez sirve para ocultar los territorios desconocidos ubicados hacia el occidente. Se diferencia del mapa de Morden en que no incluye un recuadro del Atlántico, por lo demás, la cartografía sigue siendo la misma. Sobrio cartouche con el título y el pie de imprenta ubicado en la esquina superior izquierda. Muestra también un título alternativo y pie de imprenta en la esquina superior derecha: Partie orientale de l'Amerique Angloise. Debajo de éste, una pequeña rosa de los vientos. Muestra redes fluviales, minas y depósitos minerales, asentamientos de nativos americanos, fuertes, árboles que indican la presencia de bosques y algunos bancos frente a las costas de Nueva Escocia y Terranova. El relieve se ilustra de manera gráfica con pequeñas montañas. Como se puede observar, se encuentran presentes los Grandes Lagos (Superior, Michigan, Hurón, Erie y Ontario). Muchos de los topónimos fueron traducidos al francés, mientras que algunos se conservaron en inglés, como Copper Mine, cerca de lo que actualmente es la ciudad de Chicago. Sin duda este atractivo mapa se distingue porque muestra los grandes malentendidos geográficos que se tenían sobre América hacia finales de siglo XVII. Como el punto de desembocadura del río Mississippi en el Golfo de México, orientado más hacia el occidente; la inusual forma de los Grandes Lagos; o la cadena montañosa que discurre desde Míchigan hasta Florida y que se conecta con los Montes Apalaches. Este último rasgo es uno de los errores cartográficos más misteriosos que se pueden encontrar en los mapas de Norteamérica. Otra característica destacada es la forma inusual y alongada que tiene Green Bay (llamada aquí Bay de Puans); el perfil de la península de Delaware; y los límites de Pennsylvania que se extienden más al norte. Grabado en placa de cobre. Impreso en dos hojas unidas, en un papel de excelente calidad. Coloreado a mano. Márgenes estrechos. Muy buen estado de conservación. Mapa. Bookseller Inventory # 2

Item Description: 1715. London: George Willdey, c.1715. 445 x 545mm. A rare map of the English colonies, showing the coast from Cape Henry north to Boston Harbour, one of the first to incorporate Augustine Herrman’s mapping of Virginia and Maryland. The inset is the first printed chart of New York Harbour, based on the manuscript drawn by Philip Wells for William Penn. The map was originally published as part of a wall map of the British Empire in America, issued by Thornton, Morden and Lea in 1685, known by only one known example, in the Bibliotéque Nationale in Paris. Thornton and Morden sold their interest in this sheet to Lea, who issued it with only his name c.1695, with a third state c.1698. This is the fourth and last state. BURDEN: 617, state 4.
