About this Item: London: Roger Rea, 1668, 1668. SPEED, John (1552-1629). A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World. London: Roger Rea, 1668 Oblong 8vo., (4 x 6 4/8 inches). Fine engraved double-hemisphere map of the world, and 19 full-page maps of the Continents and the rest of the known world (quite browned, edges of some leaves a little frayed). Contemporary paneled sheep (rebacked to style). Provenance: near contemporary engraved armorial bookplate on the front paste-down; some near contemporary annotations and crossings out Third edition of this miniature atlas, first published in 1646, published by George Humble's son, William Humble, with maps engraved by Van den Keere, signed Petrus Kaerius, while in his 70's, and possibly the last maps engraved by him before his death at the age of 75. The maps include the world, Asia, Africa, Europe, Americas, eleven maps of European countries, Persia, the Turkish Empire, China and Tartary (where they grew good rhubarb). The world map, "A New and Accurat Map of the World," depicts a huge southern landmass, labeled "Unknowne Land" in the eastern hemisphere and "Magallanica" in the western hemisphere. The northwest coast of North America shows a conjectural coastline that extends to the Strait of Anian. Although the world map shows a peninsular California, the western hemisphere map, America, depicts California as an island with a flat northern coast and several place names. The cartography of this map is based on Goos' of 1626, and omits any French presence in Canada. "Newe Ing. Land" is located north of the St. Lawrence River, and "Plymuth" is the only European settlement depicted. Shirley (BL Atlases) T.KEE-1i; Shirley #368; McLaughlin #8; Burden #268.

About this Item: John Sudbury & George Humble; John Dawson for George Humble, London, 1611. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. THE EARLIEST ATLAS OF THE BRITISH ISLES AD THE EARLIEST WORLD ATLAS BY AN ENGLISHMAN. FIRST EDITION of "The Theatre"; (1611) bound with the second edition (1631) of the "Prospect" "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. was the earliest English attempt at producing an atlas on a grand scale, with the first detailed maps of the provinces of Ireland, the first set of county maps consistently attempting to show the boundaries of territorial divisions, and the first truly comprehensive set of English town plans-a notable contribution to British topography. Perhaps as many as fifty of the seventy-three towns had not previously been mapped, and about fifty-one of the plans were probably Speed's own work. A balance is struck between the modern and historical, with information placed on the edges of the maps about antiquarian remains, and sites and vignettes of famous battles, together with arms of princes and nobles. This additional information is one of the Theatre's most significant contributions" (Dictionary of National Biography). The "Theatre" is complete with engraved architectural title, engraved Royal Achievements by Jodocus Hondius dated 1611, letterpress list of kingdoms and woodcut royal arms, three letterpress section titles with woodcut borders, three woodcut royal arms, 67 double-page engraved maps, most by Jodocus Hondius, woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials, mounted on guards throughout. The "Prospect" was intended as a supplement to the "Theatre" and includes 22 maps of different parts of the world, including the famous world map, presumably by Abraham Goos, and the map of America, both showing California as an island. With engraved portrait frontispiece (bound before "Theatre"). NOTE: The "Prospect" is lacking "Invasions" (but with 'Canaan' bound in its place) and lacking the final text leaf on 'Civill Warres'. Also with portrait trimmed to platemark and laid down. Provenance: J.B. Speed Art Museum, Louisville Kentucky (bookplate). London: John Sudbury & George Humble; John Dawson for George Humble, 1611; 1631. Folio (414x287mm), 19th-century full calf with elaborately gilt-decorated spine. Joints repaired, small chip to label. Some offsetting (including on the world map), some marginal repaired closed tears, some maps closely cropped. Most maps, including the world map, with good, strong impressions.

About this Item: London: Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell, 1676., 1676. 5 parts, making 2 volumes, in one. Folio (17 x 12 2/8 inches). Letterpress general title-page printed in red and black, 4 sectional title-pages. Engraved additional title-page and arms of Charles II, the "Theatre" with 68 double-page engraved maps of the Counties of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland most by Jodocus Hondius after Christopher Saxton; the "Prospect" with 28 double-page engraved maps of various parts of the world (some light, mostly marginal browning throughout). FINE modern black morocco, gilt to an 17th-century style by Trevor Lloyd. Provenance: With the near contemporary signature of Don Murray at the head of the title-page "The 1676 edition of John Speed's famous atlas marked the high point of its publishing history" (Burden). "'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine' followed the model of Ortelius's 'Theatrum orbis terrarum'-first published in English in 1606-in its title and its format, with map sheets backed by historical and geographical texts and gazetteers of place names. This was the earliest English attempt at producing an atlas on a grand scale, with the first detailed maps of the provinces of Ireland, the first set of county maps consistently attempting to show the boundaries of territorial divisions, and the first truly comprehensive set of English town plans-a notable contribution to British topography. Perhaps as many as fifty of the seventy-three towns had not previously been mapped, and about fifty-one of the plans were probably Speed's own work. In 1606 Speed might have been helped by his son John in surveying towns. A balance is struck between the modern and historical, with information placed on the edges of the maps about antiquarian remains, and sites and vignettes of famous battles, together with arms of princes and nobles. This additional information is one of the 'Theatre''s most significant contributions. Scotland is covered in less detail, as Timothy Pont was surveying there. Individual maps for the Theatre were prepared from about 1602, plates were engraved by Jodocus Hondius-noted for his skills in decoration-from 1607, George Humble was granted a privilege to print the 'Theatre' for twenty-one years from 1608, and the 'Theatre' and 'History' were published together in 1611-12. They were an immediate success: three new editions and issues of each appeared during Speed's lifetime, and a miniature version was first published about 1619-20. The maps in the 'Theatre' became the basis for subsequent folio atlases until the mid-eighteenth century. By 1625 Speed had lost his sight. Nevertheless, in 1627 he published A Prospect of the most Famous Parts of the World, which shared a title-page with the 1627 edition of the Theatre. 'THE PROSEPCT', THE EARLIEST WORLD ATLAS BY AN ENGLISHMAN (though not the first to be published in England)" (Sarah Bendall for DNB). 'The Prospect' includes the World map showing California as an Island, Continents and 6 maps of America, 4 of which appear for the first time including: "A Map of New England and New York" (Burden 455); "A Map of Virginia and Maryland" (Burden 456) "A new Description of Carolina" (Burden 457).
