[MAP - JAPAN] SEKISUI Chô & SUZUKI Kien. [ZOTEI DAI NIHON KOKUGUN YOCHI ROTEI ZENZU]. Edo, Osaka & Kyoto. Zodiacal date of Kaei 5 [1852]. Identical to the copy illustrated online from the UC Berkeley collection, save that their copy is a standard one-piece folding map in covers.

Ours is the same size when assembled (some 102 x 183 cm) but is bound in 12 separate folding sections, each identified on the cover by area, each approximately 35 x 46 cm. This would seem to have been done by the publisher for ease of use, a series of "pocket maps". They are all enclosed in a small clasped chitsu case, some 12 x 8 x 3 cm in size, with a mica-paper liner and a cloth exterior. There is a smaller size version (?), some 72 x 40, at 1852.1 in the first volume of Beans, referenced from Ramming, 1934, at #28 - obviously a misprint of some kind, as it would be hard to understand a smaller size recut map existing. In any case, a very interesting format and a lovely, detailed map in a "modern" style, employing degrees of latitude but printed in traditional color woodblock. Very good condition, impression and colors. An excellent example of Japanese cartography in transition.

[MAP - JAPAN] HAYASHI Shihei. EZO NO KUNI ZENZU. This is a "shazu" or handcopied version of the original printed map which was published in Edo, by Suharaya Shihei, in Temmei 5 [1785].

Colored map of Hokkaidô, 50 x 92 cm, folds into 17.8 x 12 cm covers with title label. Our copy resembles the 1825 reprint at http://angel.library.ubc.ca/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/tokuga wa&CISOPTR=78&REC=4 from the Beans collection at the UBC library. As we said, though, ours is a copy of the separate publication from 1785 [the Beans 1785.9, p.25]. The printed original is a great rarity and other hand-copied versions like this one, probably done in the mid-19th century, are certainly known.

In very nice condition. A handsome and interesting map of this frontier region of Japan. From the collection of Roger Keyes.

[MAP - NEW YORK STATE]. THE STATE OF NEW YORK FROM NEW AND ORIGINAL SURVEYS, under the direction of J. H. French, O.E. Syracuse: Robert Pearsall Smith, Publisher, 1860. A large-format wall map of New York State surrounded by vignette maps of Syracuse Oswego, Manhattan, Long Island, Hudson, Schenectady, Poughkeepsie, Albany, Auburn City, Utica, Buffalo, Rochester, a geological and land patent map, a meteorological map, and a time indicator (i.e. a series of dials indicate the time at several points throughout the state when it is noon at Albany). 68 x 73 inches. An excellent example of "scientific mapping" at the time, the French map is considered to the best state map produced before the civil war. It was widely used in public schools and offices at the time and is still useful as a detailed picture of roads and town locations as they existed at the time. It appears to be the first commercial map of New York State to present statistical information in cartographic form.Bottom roller missing. Varnish yellowed, with small creases. Edges worn with some small tears and dampstaining. Overall in very good condition.(Allen, D.Y.;' The Mapping of NY State'). (Ristow; American Maps p355-78).

(HOEFNAGEL, Joris). GADES AB OCCIDUIS INSULAE PARTIBUS. Double- page folio view of Cadiz, Spain, signed Georg Hoefnagel, 1564. From Volume V, no. 5. of CIVITATES ORBIS TERRARUM, Cologne, Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg (1572-98). Hand-colored. 14 1/2 by 19 1/2 inches. Light toning and wrinkling to margin; smudges to key panel and central fold, still a very good print. Of the artists involved in the Civitates, Hoefnagel was the most well-known, as calligrapher, painter, miniaturist and cartographer. A monk, a pilgrim, and fishermen are in the foreground of this peninsular city. Two vignettes show a fortress firing upon ships, and sailors gambling on the shore neared moored galleys. A leopard from the Indies and a toucan from Peru indicate Cadiz' foreign trade. (Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici p.22).

STAUNTON, Sir George. AN AUTHENTIC ACCOUNT OF AN EMBASSY FROM THE KING OF GREAT BRITAIN... Together with a relation of the voyage undertaken on the occasion by His Majesty's ship the Lion, and the ship Hindostan, in the East India Company's service, to the Yellow Sea, and Gulf of Pekin; as well as of their return to Europe; with notices of the several places where they stopped in their way out and home ... Taken chiefly from the papers of His Excellency the the Earl of Macartney ...; Sir Erasmus Gower ..., and of other Gentlemen in the several departments of the Embassy. In Three Volumes. London: Printed for G. Nicol, 1797.

First octavo edition, complete as issued in 3 volumes with 3 large fold-out maps engraved by B. Baker. Pp. xvi,429; xv,383; xvii,490 + [1] foldout leaf ('Appendix VII') inserted after p. 486. Worn contemporary bindings of diced calf with gilt lettering on spine: spines are darkened, joints are starting and/or split, and the leather is pulling away from the boards, with some rippling, creasing, and chipping. The blue endpapers have lifted in places revealing early 19th-century advertisements (for new medicine, surgery, and chemistry titles from the publisher Longman, Hurst, Rees and Orme) that were used as lining. Bookblocks are sound and text leaves are clean but for some scant, light foxing and a couple of gatherings whose paper has toned. Bookplate on ffep in each volume.

Folding frontispiece map in each volume: 1. 'A General Chart on Mercator's Projection, to show the train of the Lion and Hindostan from England to the Gulf of Pekin in Chiana, and of the their return to England.' 42.5 x 62.5 cm. 2. 'A Sketch of a Journey from ZHE-HOL in TARTARY by land to PEKIN and from thence by water to HANG-TCHOO-FOO in CHINA,' by J. Barrow. 67 X 47.5 cm. Closed tear with an old paper repair on verso. 3. 'Sketch of a Journey from HANG-TCHOO-FOO to QUANG-TCHOO-FOO of CANTON in CHINA,' by J. Barrow. 65 x 46.5 cm. Two small closed tears mended on verso. (This edition, published in the same year and by the same publisher as the first two-volume quarto edition with the separate folio atlas of plates which was prepared at Government expense, is complete with only three maps as offered here.)

Although Macartney's embassy to install a resident British minister and establish trade relations with China was not successful, it collected much interesting information about contemporary Chinese manners and customs that is set forth in these volumes. Also of interest are the descriptions of the various places en route which were visited, including Madeira, Tenerife (Teneriff), Rio de Janeiro, St. Helena, Tristan da Cunha (Tristan d'Acunha), Amsterdam Island, Indonesia (Java & Sumatra), Vietnam (Cochin-China), etc.

London: Day & Son, 1856. This is volume 5 only. Large octavo. 11 by 7 7/8 in. (27.9 x 20 cm). This volume was part of a new edition, though in a smaller format, of Roberts's two famous works: The Holy Land, three folio volumes, 1842-9, and Egypt and Nubia, three folio volumes, 1846-9. The volume is finely illustrated and contains all plates called for. There are 43 plates in all, including one map; the rest are lithographed views, tinted in one or two, and, very occasionally, in three colors. The plates are quite fresh overall. The volume is ex-library and most plates have an imperceptible ink stamp on the reverse of each plate, with the exception of the lithographed title-page which is stamped in the image. The bookblock is loose in a worn and rubbed nineteenth-century binding of quarter morocco and marbled boards. Offered as is, but illustrated with beautiful tinted lithographs.

Comprising notes and researches relative to the Gold Coast, and the Interior of Western Africa; chiefly collected from Arabic MSS. and information communicated by the Moslems of Guinea: to which is prefixed an account of the origin and causes of the present war. London: Printed for Henry Colburn, 1824. First edition. Illustrated with a folding map and fifteen plates, of which three are folding and one a double-spread. [2],viii,xxxviii,[2],264,cxxxvi pp. Quarto, untrimmed. Original binding; brick cloth spine and grey paper boards, with a printed paper spine label. Boards show general wear at edges and moderate soiling. The cloth spine is sunned and worn through in places, revealing a heavier cloth support below, and the label is chipped. Sporadic foxing throughout text leaves, mostly in the margins, with occasional soiling; however, the foxing is moderately heavy on the opening and closing leaves. The plates show light to moderate foxing, and a few of the plates have some splitting at folds. One plate has an irregular closed tear at the inside edge of the plate. The map also has an irregular tear and is missing chip at the inside edge of the plate. Nonetheless, it is a scarce work, complete and in original boards. Lowndes calls it "a valuable work written by a man of talent." (Abbey 281). $4,250.00 #73118
