By W.R. Gardner. London: William Darton, 58 Holborn Hill, 10 Mo. 23rd, 1823. W.R. Gardner Sculpt. 367 Strand.
Note This may be the earliest chart to depict the heights of mountains and the lengths of rivers together in one illustration, with the rivers hanging down over the mountains. Wolter says that Bulla's Tableau Comparatif of 1826 is the earliest of the combined mountain and river type, but he had not seen this chart by Gardner done three years earlier and does not list it. This chart is beautifully done and, while not large in size, it is impressive in its scope. Full color. Map is mounted on linen, dissected into 8 sections with an end sheet label reading "The Most Approved Modern Maps, Plans, And Charts, Of every Description, From The Best Authorities, Constantly on Sale at William Darton's Map, Print, and Chart Warehouse, 58, Holborn Hill, London..." Map folds into a dark green marbled cardboard case with a turquoise paper label printed with the map title (as above), there is a "William Darton's, Map seller" bookplate label on the back of the case.

Authors Cary, John, ca. 1754-1835
Full Title (Covers to) Chart of the world upon Mercator's projection drawn from the most recent geographical materials exhibiting the whole of the new discoveries with the tracks of the principal navigators accurately adjusted from the most exact astronomical observations. London, published By John Cary, No. 181 Strand June 1819.
Note A scarce map that is not listed in Fordham's Cary bibliography, nor in the British Museum list - the BM lists shows a later map (1827) with a different title. This is a finely detailed map in the best Cary style. The cartography follows closely his 18" globe of 1818 (see our copy) and may have been inspired by it - the scale is the same at the equator. The tracks of the various navigations of the period are shown with great precision. An interesting feature is the repetition of western Europe and Africa on both sides of the map. Full color. Map is dissected into 30 sections and folds into a dark olive green marbled board slip case 29x21 with label reading "World. Sold By C. Smith. Mapseller, 172 Strand, London." Relief shown pictorially.

Full Title Colton's Illustrated & Embellished Steel Plate Map of The World On Mercator's Projection, Compiled from the latest & most Authentic Sources Exhibiting the recent Arctic and Antarctic Discoveries & Explorations.

Griffing Johnson ... New York.
Note Colton took over the publishing of this map from Johnson in 1849. This is a later Colton issue. Many updates have been made in North America, the Arctic, Africa, and elsewhere. The journey of a Frenchman around the world in 1854 to 1857 is shown in manuscript with interesting notes on the travel. Two stickers on the outside of the case are French in origin, further indicating that the map was most likely purchased in Paris by the Frenchman at the end of his journey in 1857 - showing that Colton was selling his maps in Europe at that time and that his maps were competitive with European maps - at least our traveler thought so. See our 1847 first edition by Johnson. Full color map with silk edging, dissected into 20 sections. Folds into half leather brown cloth covered boards 38x41 with ties, titled "Colton's World. New-York" stamped in gilt.
