  • Thomas Cook’s – Tours of Egypt the Nile, Sudan, Palestine and Syria -1928

    Thomas Cook’s – Tours of Egypt the Nile, Sudan, Palestine and Syria -1928

    We love this 110 page brochure advertising Thomas Cook’s tours in the style of Poirot and Death on the Nile.

    It would take us a week to explain the depth of information, photographs, maps, intricate details of each of the numerous vessels with photos of the cabins, saloons etc. End paper maps and layout of each of the vessels.

    Very good condition albeit some pencil annotations of a planned holiday – luck bastards!

  • Map of the World – Cartographer De l’Ilse – Engraved and Published by Chatelain – c1730

    Map of the World – Cartographer De l’Ilse – Engraved and Published by Chatelain – c1730

    An original copper engraved map of the world in two hemispheres by Gullaume De L’Isle published in Amsterdam by Chatelain.

    The full title to the map is … “Mappe Monde ou description Generale du Globe Terrestre suivant M. De L’Isle de l’Academie Royale des Sciences”.

    A curious map reflecting the unknown and the incorrect at the time. Nothing understood about the North West Coast of America although a land mass. to the east, is identified but not named … this is the fictitious “Campany’s Land”. The Dutch understanding of Australia (Nouvelle Holland)is shown with its limitations but without the south coast of Tasmania, noting also the mountain ranges shown in the North West. A most unusual map with some interesting features.

    Gullaume De l’Isle (1675-1726) was a leading French cartographer of his period, following Sanson. His father was involved in geography and education although Gullaume was independent and bright at an early age. He was mentored by the great Astronomer Cassini. He became a member of the Acadamie Royale de Sciences and was appointed by Louis XIV to teach geography to the Dauphin. Like most cartographer his maps continued to be published well after his death. His intellectual property was eventually taken over by cartographer Bauche.

    Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684-1743) was a Huguenot who lived variously in Paris, London the Hague and Amsterdam. He was the main mover in a family of engravers and publishers, and produced the Atlas Historic which included maps after De l’Isle of which this delightful World Map is an example.

    Price $260.00 unframed or $390.00 framed in Voyager rare map style … enquire if you wish it framed or need to discuss framing options.

    Intriguing world map with lots of curiosity.

  • A Voyage Round the World in the years MDCCXL, I, II, III, IV, By George Anson, Commander in Chief of a Squadron of His Majesty’s Ships, sent upon an Expedition to the South Seas, Compiled from his papers by Richard Walter.

    A Voyage Round the World in the years MDCCXL, I, II, III, IV, By George Anson, Commander in Chief of a Squadron of His Majesty’s Ships, sent upon an Expedition to the South Seas, Compiled from his papers by Richard Walter.

    Thick quarto, 20, 417, and 3 pages; 42 magnificent copper engraved plates – complete, consisting of pictorial engraved plates, maps, plans and charts, all but 1 folding, many multiple and large. Published By Osborne, Woodfall,Bowyer, Millar, Strahan et al, London 1767 a twelfth edition

    Includes the often missing and valuable folding frontispiece folding Map of the World map shewing the Track of the Centurion. This map shows North America and Australia only partly delineated, (being well before James Cook’s voyages of discovery) and California is shown as an island.

    Full leather binding later re-backed, a beautiful almost unnoticeable job. A remarkably clean example with very little ageing or handling to the numerous folding plates. A very good to better copy.

    While Great Britain was at war with Spain in 1740, Commodore George Anson led a Squadron of eight ships on a mission to harass the Spaniards on the west coast of South America and cut off their supplies of wealth from the Pacific. Returning to England in 1744 by way of China and thus completing a circumnavigation, the voyage was notable for the capture of the gold laden Acapulco Galleon but also for the loss of all ships except Anson’s Centurion and horrific losses to disease with only 300 of the original 900 surviving.

    This is the official account of the voyage compiled from Anson’s papers by Richard Walter, chaplain on board the Centurion. Anson’s voyage is remembered as a classic tale of endurance and leadership in the face of fearful disasters, but to Englishmen of 1744 it was the treasure of the galleon, triumphantly paraded through the streets of London, which restored national pride after an unsuccessful war against the Spaniards.

    See also our original account of Byron on the Wager which perished as part of the fleet during this voyage.
