Note 1st edition, with five postal maps added, as issued. With the list of subscribers and the extra postal maps of England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The French postal map is dated 1758. All five were added after the printed list of maps was printed, but are mentioned by Vaugondy in the preface, so they may have been an afterthought. An owner has added their titles to the printed list of maps, in ms. Engraved title page, Advertisement, and Geographical essay giving the sources of the maps. This atlas was reissued until 1799 (Phillips), with later issues having a map of the United States. In original half leather patterned paper covered boards with spine reading "Nouvel Atlas De Mrs. Robert." One of the first atlases based on scientific surveys, in the tradition of D'Anville and De L'Isle. Outline color.

Full Title (Covers to) Atlas nouveau, contenant toutes les parties su Monde, ou sont exactement remarquees les empires, monarchies, royaumes, etats, republiques, &c. Par Guillaume de l'Isle. Premier Geographe de sa Majeste. A Amsterdam, Chez Jean Covens & Corneille Mortier, sur le Vygendam. (illus. on title page) Socio ditata labore ... J. Wandelaar del. et fecit. (bound with) Inleidinge tot de Geographie ... Door den Heer Sanson d'Abbeville, Ordinaris Geographist des Konings. Te Amsterdam, By Johannes Covens en Cornelis Mortier, Boekverkopers op den Vygendam. Met Privilelgie der Heeren Staaten van Holland en West-Vriesland.
Note This is a later edition of DeLisle's maps, including some maps by Sanson, Jaillot and others, first published by Covens and Mortier in 1730. It is bound with a geography text by Sanson. This issue did not included the abbreviated edition of Popple's map that appears in the P596 copy and the index does not call for it. The maps are beautifully done, following the original DeLisle plates closely. This copy does not have the plan of Carthagene called for in the index, and it does not appear to have been bound in originally (there is a ms line drawn through the index line referring to this map that may have been done at the time of issue). Koeman's C&M 6 is slightly different from our copy: it has 1733 on the title page and 1741 on the index (our copy has 1742 on the index and no date on the title page, also, C&M 6 lists 107 maps on the index - this one lists 108 maps with one crossed out (see above) - that map crossed out was published in 1741 or 42 and probably was not yet ready for inclusion. So our copy was unknown to Koeman or Phillips. Atlas is bound in half leather marbled paper covered boards with "DeLisle Atlas" stamped in gilt on the new spine. Maps are hand painted with outline color.

Full Title (Covers to) Atlas spheroidal et universel de geographie dresse a l'aide des documents officiels, recemment publies en France et a l'etranger par M.F.A. Garnier, Membre de la Societe de Geographie, etc. Paris, Veuve Jules Renouard, Libraire, Editeur de A. Balbi, Abrege de Geographie, A. Guibert, Dictionnaire de Geographie, Dufour et Jomard, Le Globe, etc. Rue de Tournon, 6, Faubourg Saint-Germain. MDCCCLXII.
Note This atlas is exceptional for its "spheroidal" maps of the globe, showing the various continents and poles, shaded to give the effect of a sphere floating in space. The remaining maps are also very well executed and colored, mostly by hand, a few in colored litho. In recent years, this atlas has become rare in the trade. This is the only atlas that Garnier produced, according to Phillips. Tooley lists an 1860 edition. Covers are quarter leather marbled paper covered boards with a paper label, the burgundy leather spine is embossed with "F.A. Garnier. Atlas Universel et Spheroidal de Geographie" in gilt. On verso of half-title: Paris -- Imprimerie de P.-A. Bourdier et Cie., Rue Mazarine, 30.

Full Title (Covers to) (Atlas de Geographie)
Note DeLisle is important as the first "scientific" cartographer who incorporated the most current information on exploration and topography into his maps. His maps of America contain many innovations: discarding the fallacy of California as an island, first naming of Texas, first correct delineation of the Mississippi Valley, and first correct longitudes of America. Lloyd Brown states that DeLisle "undertook a complete reform of a system of geography that had been in force since the second century, and by the time he was twenty five he had very nearly accomplished his purpose." This copy is without title page, as issued. This is a relatively early edition of DeLisle's untitled atlas, published in Paris, with most of the maps having the "Quai de l'Horloge" imprint. All of the important maps of the Americas are present: Hemisphere Occidental, 1st issue 1724, Carte d'Amerique, 1st issue, 2nd state 1722, L'Amerique Septentrionale, 2nd issue 1700-1708, L'Amerique Meridionale, 3rd issue 1700-1708, Carte du Canada, 2nd issue 1703-1708, Carte de la Louisiane, 1st issue, 2nd state with New Orleans 1718, Carte du Mexique et de la Floride, 2nd issue 1703-1708, Carte de l'Isle de Saint Dominque, 1st issue 1725, Carte des Antilles, 1st issue 1717, Carte de la Terre Ferme du Peru, du Brazil, 2nd issue 1703-1708, and Carte du Paraguay du Chili, 2nd issue 1703-1708. Only two of the ninety four maps were issued after De l'Isle's death in 1826: "Carte du... Senegal... Ouvrage Posthume... Par... La Veuve Delisle 1826" and "Alexandri Magni Imperium...Opus Posthumum...1731." Early Paris editions (ie before Buache became publisher in 1732) of DeLisle's atlas with the full 94 maps are scarce - the LOC has none.

Authors Lucas Jr., Fielding
Full Title (Covers to) A General Atlas, Of All The Known Countries In The World. Baltimore: Published by Fielding Lucas, Junr. No. 138, Market Street. (1822)
Note This is a very unusual Lucas atlas - according to Foster, only two copies are known. The engraved colored title page shows a globe and books on a table, with pages open listing Lucas' products: "Drawing Materials of every kind, Paper of all sizes, Mathematical Instruments, Globes, Maps, and Atlases of every description suitable for Colleges and Schools constantly for sale by the Publisher." It has 31 of the Tanner and Harrison engraved maps of the continents and foreign countries that appeared in the (1815) and (1816) "New And Elegant General Atlas" (only Netherlands bears Lucas' imprint, engraved by Young & Delleker, and is basically the same as the map that appears in the 1823 "General Atlas Containing Distinct Maps..." ). Of the remaining 36 maps, 8 are of South America and the West Indies and are unchanged in the 1823 atlas, the other 28 maps are in many cases early states of the new U.S. maps that appear in the 1823 atlas and replace the Tanner engraved U.S. maps of 1815 and 1816 atlases. They all have Lucas' imprint and show various engravers, Welch, Young & Delker, Cone & Freeman, Kneass, and Hufty. Compared to the early 1823 atlas (our #4584), 16 of the 28 U.S. maps are earlier issues, with only one being a later issue - New Hampshire shows Merrimack County (1823) which does not appear on the early 1823 atlas map (this was probably drawn in anticipation of creation). Of particular note are: Louisiana, a double page map engraved by Harrison and "Reduced from W. Darby's Four Sheet Map" which is dated 1817 as does not show Alabama or Arkansas Territory, and a map of "North Western and Michigan Territories" which is the same base map as the 1823 "Michigan Ter." but shows a much smaller Michigan in a configuration that Paullin dates as 1819 with a large North Western Territory extending to the west. Karpinski 94 incorrectly dates this map as "certainly as late as 1824" while mentioning that Phillips dates it 1819 (?). We cannot find the Phillips entry, bu

1771
World Atlas
Authors Anville, Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d, 1697-1782
Full Title (Covers to) (Atlas general) (Paris : Sr. D'Anville, 1771?)
Note Maps dated 1743-71. Most of D'Anville's atlases were made up for the individual customer, so it appears that no two are alike. Many of the maps are multisheet maps that have here been joined, so the actual map sheet count is about 45. This set is accompanied by a printed list of "Cartes Geographiques de M. D'Anville" with the maps numbered 1-38 in ms, corresponding to the maps in the atlas. This sheet also lists "Ouvrages par ecrit, et qui ont ete imprimes." One of the listed books is dated 1777. D'Anville's maps have a clarity and directness that is very "modern." He read widely, and incorporated the best available geographic knowledge into his work. The English and others copied from his maps extensively. Many of the maps were missing when we acquired this atlas, and have been added subsequently. Maps stored, some bound, in a binding with half leather and cloth ties. "Atlas" printed on the spine.

Full Title (Covers to) A New Universal Atlas, Comprising Separate Maps Of all the Principal Empires, Kingdoms & States Throughout the World: and forming a distinct Atlas Of The United States. Carefully Compiled from the best Authorities Extant by Jeremiah Greenleaf. a new edition revised and corrected to the present time. 1848.
Note Rare reissue of 1842 Greenleaf Universal Atlas. Many changes from the 1842 edition: Florida a State, Michigan entirely redrawn, Mexican War results on North American map, Mexico, Texas, Oregon changes to show 1846 boundary with Canada, Missionary stations listed on the Hemispheres, and many new railroads, counties, boundaries, etc. There are more changes between this edition and the 1842, than between the 1842 and Burr's 1836. Not in Karpinski, which is strange because Michigan is totally redrawn, not in Phillips or any other reference. There is also an 1849 edition (property of C.W.) that has similar maps except the Mexico map does not reflect the Mexican War boundary - probably he was running out of maps and this was at the bottom of the stack! Has the same Geography text in the rear, unchanged. The Wisconsin and Iowa map in this copy differs from an 1848 in Fitch Catalogue 48, #314, in having Mandan Dist. instead of Missouri Territory in the Fitch, making this copy probably later (the 1842 has Missouri Territory). Burr's name is no longer on the map of Illinois. Maps are in full color. Bound in half leather, floral patterned blue cloth covered boards with "The Universal Atlas" stamped in gold. Spine reads "Atlas". Marbled lining.

The city plans are of particular interest, with vignettes and great detail. The gnomonic star maps were issued separately in this edition in their own covers. This is the second edition, the first being by Baldwin and Cradock, with the maps issued in numbers and later bound as a set. Rumsey Collection copy originally issued without the 6 "World on a gnomonic projection" maps, copies of them have been laid in.

World Atlas
Authors Hall, S. (Sidney)
Full Title (Covers to) A new general atlas, with the divisions and boundaries carefully coloured, Constructed entirely from new drawings, and engraved by Sidney Hall. (1st ed.). London, printed for Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown and Green, Paternoster Row, 1830.
Note Unusual presentation in two large elephant folio volumes with the maps unfolded. Covers are three quarter leather, marbled paper covered boards with "Hall's Atlas Part 1" and "Part 2" respectively, stamped in gilt on the front and spine. Wheat mentions the United States, Mexico and Guatimala, and British North America maps: he declares them up to date, making good use of the Lewis and Clark and Long maps. Interestingly for a British cartographer, Hall shows Maine and Oregon with the most ambitious U.S. claims as to territory. Graphically, these maps are very striking and beautiful, with outline color. Hall did a revised edition in the 1850-57 period (Phillips 821). The Australia maps are also mentioned by Tooley (Australia and Antarctica). In 1840 he collaborated with A. & C. Black to produce Black's General Atlas -- however, those maps are somewhat smaller and not as impressive as these maps. The maps are dated variously from 1827 to 1830, with the title page dated 1830. This may indicate that the atlas was first issued in parts.

Full Title (Covers to) (Atlante Geografico. Napoli, Benedetto Marzolla, 1856)
Note This is a very attractive and scarce atlas by a cartographer from Naples. Not in Phillips or British Museum. Marzolla prints extensive notes with his maps, listing his cartographic sources and giving political and statistical information on the areas covered. No title page (probably issued that way) and with a manuscript list of contents. The map of "Nuova California" is based on the Hypolite Ferry map of 1850 and is discussed by Wheat. The maps are dated from 1840 to 1856. Outline color. The covers are brown paper covered boards with a leather spine embossed with "Marzolla. Atlante geografico. G.B." in gilt.

World Atlas
Authors Meyer, Joseph, 1796-1856
Full Title (Covers to) Grosser Hand-Atlas uber alle Theile der Erde in 170 Karten. Herausgegeben von J. Meyer. Hildburghausen Verlag des Bibliographischen Instituts. (1860)
Note This is Meyer's grandest production, a real tour de force that has fifty maps of the Americas including thirty three maps that are derived from the Tanner/Mitchell Universal atlas maps of the various U.S. States and Territories, Canada, and South America and are dated from 1844 to 1854 (with most dated 1844 or 1845). Many of the maps in this atlas have Philadelphia as a place of publication (along with several other cities) indicating that there may have been an arrangement with Tanner and/or Mitchell to copy the maps. The U.S. maps dated 1844-46 all appear to derive from a late 1830s edition of Tanner's Universal atlas. Those dated from 1850-54 derive from the Mitchell and Thomas Cowperthwait issues of the Universal atlas from 1850-54. Espenhorst lists a separate atlas (3.3.3) published in 1860 with these U.S. maps only, titled "Grosse und vollstandiger Auswanderungs-Atlas fur Nordamerika." The Iowa, Wisconsin, and Texas maps are not copied from the Universal atlas, but all the others are almost exact copies and it is strange that no credit is given to Tanner or Mitchell. Notwithstanding that, the copies are beautifully done and in some cases (the California map adds an inset of San Francisco Bay not on the Mitchell version) superior to the American originals. Wheat misses the Tanner/Mitchell derivation in the two maps he cites. The other maps in the atlas are all superbly engraved and the city maps have exquisite views -- all combining to make this the finest German atlas of the mid 19th century. Full and outline hand coloring. Maps are bound in half leather marbled boards with "Meyer's Grosser Hand-Atlas aller Theile der Erde." stamped on the spine in gilt. Scarce.
