  • Eastern Hemisphere with Australia – La Division de Nostre Ocean – Philippe Briet – 1648

    Eastern Hemisphere with Australia – La Division de Nostre Ocean – Philippe Briet – 1648

    A scarce early copper engraved map of the eastern hemisphere with an outline of Northern Australia from the Dutch understanding.

    Published in Paris in 1648. The cartographer was Philippe Briet (1601-1668) also know as Philippus Brietius. He was a Jesuit scholar, historian and cartographer.

    Uncommon, with a good dark impression. Text on reverse with some show through as usual. Very good condition. Size 19cm by 14.5 cm in the printed area. Uncoloured as it should be.

    As well as Terre Australe there are a number of other cartographic features of interest including, Korea shown as an island, Africa has a large Lake Zaire, Sri Lanka is named Zailan an early Arabic name for the island. The ranges across Asia, east to west and down into the Himalayan region are the only mountain features shown. Note the sea between Java / Timor and Australia is named “Lanchidol” a curiosity explored by Donaldson in his paper “In Search of a Sea: the Origins of the Name Mare Lanchidol” published by the Australian Association for Maritime History” well worth the read …

    Scarce Mid 17thC Map with Terre Australe … a real historic beauty.

  • A Guide to maps of Australia in Books Published 1780-1830 – Perry and Prescott

    A Guide to maps of Australia in Books Published 1780-1830 – Perry and Prescott

    A pretty essential accessory to Tooley regarding the mapping of Australia.

    Described as an “annotated cartobibliography” compiled by Tom Perry and Dorothy Prescott.

    Published by the National Library of Australia in 1996, small quarto, 315 pages with some illustrations. Hardbound, published without a dust jacket, decorative paper covered boards, quality paper, a heavy book.

    A supreme effort cataloguing nearly 600 maps and charts of Australia, or parts of Australia. The referencing system is simple and useful, giving the date of publication then order of appearance, and with a reference to Ferguson’s Bibliography of all books Australian, if appropriate – e.g. 1824.19 is the 1824 published map of Van Diemen’s Land by Sidney Hall published in Wentworth’s “A Statistical Account of the British settlements in Australasia” (Ferguson 990).

    Tom Perry was Reader in Geography at Melbourne University and author of a number of celebrated books on Australian discovery and the charting of Australia. Dorothy Prescott was similarly linked to Melbourne University and at one time held the distinguished position of Map Curator at the National Library of Australia.

  • Atlas of Columbus and The Great Discoveries – Kenneth Nebenzahl

    Atlas of Columbus and The Great Discoveries – Kenneth Nebenzahl

    A first printing 1990 of Kenneth Nebenzahl’s striking work on early maps. Despite the title much more than New World focused

    Published by Rand McNally and probably one of their best works. Folio, 168 pages, extensively illustrated in colour. A fine copy in a complete and pristine dust jacket. Heavy and will be difficult to send Overseas.

    Nebenzahl, Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and Trustee of the Newberry Library , Chicago … a map lovers heaven. Recipient of the “Tooley” award of the International map Collectors Society.

    With the backbone of Columbus the book is set out in four parts. Part I – The Geographic Tradition inherited by Columbus; Part II – Columbus and His Contemporaries Change the Map; Part II – Filling in the Features of the Earth and Part IV Europe’s Colonial Era Begins. We must say the only rather dull thing about this book is the “Part Headings”. It is not al all dull and contains many beautiful cartographic curiosities not found in other books of aligned topic.

    Special cartographic work with super examples and illustrations.
