Sale Information

Maps form a large part of this sale, with several rare and interesting examples on offer. These include Braun and Hogenberg’s Londinum feracissimi Angliae Regni metropolis and a copy of Bayliss and Crumpston’s 1939 1:7,500,000 scale map of Antarctica produced in support of Australia’s claim to Antarctic territory. There are also mathematical and surveying works such as a first edition of John Love’s Geodaesia (produced to aid surveying of the Carolinas) and Newton’s 1672 translation and expansion of Varenius’ Geographia Generalis. Along with maps, there are many illustrated works, both children’s books like William Timlin’s The Ship That Sailed to Mars and many with fine engraved plates, such as several works by Richard Farren and John Crome’s Norfolk Picturesque Scenery (likely 1838 edition) bound with 20 engravings from David Hodgson’s Antiquarian Remains. Other intriguing items include a collection of Alexander Maconochie’s pamphlets on prison reform; M. de la Créquinière’s Conformite des Coutumes des Indiens Orientaux; and the original watercolours for a possibly-unpublished CAM [Barbara Campbell] book.
