         A MAP OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE IN AMERICA WITH THE FRENCH, SPANISH AND THE DUTCH SETTLEMENTS ADJACENT THERETO.

      Amsterdam: Printed for John Covens and Cornelius Mortier, [n.d., ca. 1742]. - Copper-engraved map on four sheets, joined, 46 x 41 inches. In near fine condition, handsomely framed in a gold leaf frame, under rated plexiglass. Henry Popple produced this map under the auspices of the Lord Commissioners of Trade and Plantations to help settle disputes arising from the rival expansions of English, Spanish and French colonies. "France claimed not only Canada, but also territories drained by the Mississippi and its tributaries - in practical terms, an area of half a continent" - Goss, THE MAPPING OF NORTH AMERICA, p.122. The thrust of British mapmaking after 1718 was to establish her presence cartographically on the French. Hence the title "The British Empire in America."Nevertheless, in making the map, Popple used the best available geographical information: Colonel Barnwell's map of the southeast; De L'Isle's "Carte de la Louisiane"; Cadwallader Colden's map of the Iroquois nations, and seems to have come up with a map that did not please imperialistic British viewers as much as it did those who only wanted an accurate depiction. The result is a vast map of North America never before delineated in such detail, and a source of delight and intrigue to this day. Babinksi notes that George Washington owned a copy of the Key map (Popple's abbreviated version) and Benjamin Franklin ordered two copies for the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1746 and another in 1752. The Popple and Mitchell (1755) maps were the most important maps of North America made in the 18th century and were widely known and referred to throughout the formation of the United States. This example is the second state of the edition published by Covens and Mortier in Amsterdam, circa 1742. Covens & Mortier was a highly respected Amsterdam map publishing firm, which, more than any of their colleagues, maintained the high standards established by the Dutch and French cartographers of the previous century. It is differentiated from the first state by the word "Hollandish" being changed to "The Dutch" in the cartouche. The original Popple map is virtually impossible to present as a unified piece (joined, it measures more than eight feet square). The Covens and Mortier version of Popple offers in a more manageable and accessible form all the geographical and political material of the original, including the depiction of Wager's sea battle with the Spanish near Cartagena in 1707. The region in question, the Eastern half of North America and a portion of northern South America, is laid out on four sheets, which joined are 46 x 41 inches. An excellent example of the most important American map of its era. Mark Babinski, HENRY POPPLE'S 1733 MAP (New Jersey, 1998), state 2 of the Covens & Mortier edition. E.

      40 pp. 8vo, late 19th-century calf-backed marbled boards, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece. Paris: J.B. Coignard, 1742.An extremely rare catalogue of "one of the most important and renowned collections of antiquities assembled in the 18th century."-Astrid Dostert, "La description historique des antiques du cardinal de Polignac par Moreau de Mautour…", Journal des savants, 2001, Vol. I, pp. 93-152-(an extremely informative article).Cardinal Polignac (1661-1742), an influential diplomat and art connoisseur, played an important role in the negotiation of the Treaty of Utrecht as well as maintaining close ties between France and the Vatican. Pope Alexander VIII is believed to have said to him: "I do not know how you do it; you seem to always be on my side, and I always end up on yours."-N.B.G.Polignac spent a considerable amount of time in Rome and organized archaeological digs from which he built the collection described herein. He read both Latin and Greek and developed not only a comprehensive knowledge of ancient civilization but also a refined eye for antiquities. So esteemed was this collection that following Polignac's death, Frederick the Great purchased the bulk of the collection to fill his houses at Charlottenburg and Sanssouci in Potsdam. Many of those objects are now found in the museums of Berlin.A fine copy.❧ N.B.G., Vol. 40, cols. 607-10.

         Signed legal document to a military widow

      Dover, NH, 1742. unbound. near fine. A rare memento from the War of Jenkins' Ear -- the first time that a Regiment of Colonial-American troops was raised and made part of the Regular British Army -- and sent to fight outside North America. Exceptional legal document signed "B. Wentworth," 1 page, 6.5 x 7.5 inches, written completely in the hand of James Jeffrey, clerk, Dover, New Hampshire, December 2, 1742, addressing the complaint of a widow whose husband was killed in military Service of the Crown, in full: "Whereas the Widow of Thomas Pinkham late of Dover in New Hampshire, complains: That her late husband did enlist himself in His Majesties Service for the late Cuba Expedition. And several of his members of his house say there was allowed him the said Thomas Pinkham the sum of two pounds - fourteen shillings for his subsistence money in that Service: which was never paid him per her. Wherefore Voted, that the said Widow be paid out of the money in the Treasury for payment of contingencies - the said sum of two pounds - fourteen shillings, old tenor in full of all Demands." Note: The War of Jenkins' Ear was a conflict between Britain and Spain that lasted from 1739 to 1748, with major operations largely ending by 1742. On August 4, 1742, Admiral Edward Vernon and Major General Thomas Wentworth landed troops at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in what was originally perceived as an easy victory over the Spaniards. Instead the British accomplished nothing but the loss of over 3,400 soldiers killed, wounded, or missing, having succumbed to disease, too weak to repel the constant attacks by Spanish guerrillas. On December 9 they re-embarked and sailed to Port Royal. Near fine condition.

S'il n'a connu l'Afrique qu'à travers les livres, il a, au contraire, été mêlé de près à l'histoire des Iles de 1694 à 1706 ; tour à tour prêtre, médecin, ingénieur, diplomate, administrateur, nous le voyons en 1703 défendre la Guadeloupe contre les Anglais, à la tête d'une troupe de Noirs qu'il a équipée à la française. Il a joué aussi un rôle déterminant dans la mise en valeur des Iles et notamment dans l'organisation de l'économie sucrière. Esprit pratique, Labat ne s'intéresse pas à la connaissance pure mais aux applications utiles, et tels de ses mémoires sur l'indigo ou la canne à sucre sont évidemment destinés aux planteurs des colonies » (Numa Broc). Description complète et détaillée des Antilles des points de vue de l'histoire naturelle et de la géographie, de l'économie et des mœurs, de l'agriculture ou de la condition des esclaves, la relation de Labat est également fameuse pour les renseignements piquants qu'elle renferme sur plusieurs familles du pays. Le père Labat avait, il est vrai, un penchant marqué pour les anecdotes et les « potins » C'est pour cette raison, précise Numa Broc, que la première édition est si rare, « les familles créoles que Labat ridiculisait l'ayant achetée pour la détruire ».

      1742 - By: Matthias Seutter Date: 1742 (Published) Augsburg Size: 22.75 x 19.5 inches (57.8 cm x 50 cm) This magnificent map of the southern part of the boot of Italy by Matthias Seutter is one of the most attractive of its time. Starting just south of Rome on the west coast and a bit farther north on the east coast, this map focuses on the Kingdom of Naples, and the northern portion of Sicily shown at the toe. The region is divided into provinces and includes, as noted by the key in the lower left quadrant, all signs of human activity, including major cities, minor cities, villages, fortifications, archbishoprics, universities, and even lone castles in the countryside. Seutter takes great care to depict topographical features including gulfs, ports, rivers, and lakes. Mountains and hills are delineated. Volcanic islands to the west of Italy are included, and a large scale cartouche in the lower right quadrant presents a spectacular view of Vesuvius erupting. The ornate title cartouche in the upper right quadrant is bordered by coats of arms of the regions named in the cartouche, and cherubim allegorically stitch the principalities together with a ribbon on which the names of the regions represented are written. Condition: This map is in B+ condition. Dark and vibrant impression with original color. Centerfold separation closed with archival material on the verso. Inventory #10888

         Antique Print-SEA CHART-ATLANTIC-NORTH-Bellin-Depot de la Marine-Dheulland-1742

      1742 - Antique print, titled: 'Carte Reduite de l'Ocean Occidental [ ].' - Sea chart of the Northern Atlantic ocean, showing the coasts of France, Africa until the Gulf of Guinea and North America, Cuba and the Northern part of South America. Source unknown, to be determined. These type of charts are scarse as they were actually used at sea for navigation. Engraving on hand laid paper. Made by 'Guillaume Dheulland' after 'Jacques Nicolas Bellin'. Guillaume Dheulland (ca. 1700-1770) was a French mapmaker and engraver. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century. With a career spanning some 50 years, Bellin is best understood as geographe de cabinet and transitional mapmaker spanning the gap between 18th and early 19th century cartographic styles. His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine (1720 - present), often called the Depot de Marine, was a French hydrographic mapping organization founded in 1720. Much like the U.S. Coast Survey, the British Admiralty, and the Spanish Deposito Hydrografico, the Depot was initiated as a storehouse and distribution center of existing nautical and marine charts. Eventually the Depot initiated its on mapping activities in an attempt to improve and expand upon existing material. Some of the well known hydrograhers / cartographers in the development of Depot were Jacques Nicholas Bellin and Rigobert Bonne. Very good, given age. Original middle fold, as issued. A few small stains and creases in the margins and image area. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. The overall size is ca. 90.7 x 63.5 cm. The image size is ca. 79.2 x 54 cm. The overall size is ca. 35.7 x 25 inch. The image size is ca. 31.2 x 21.3 inch. Storage location: Overasselt-109

A footnote to Act II, scene 5, references Fielding's distaste towards those who abandoned their opposition to Walpole when he was made Lord Ormond, following his resignation in 1742: "To make use of popular interest, and the character of patriotism, in order to betray one's country, is perhaps the most flagitious of all Crimes" (p. 57).Uncommon on the market, with the last copy sold at auction in 1982 according to ABPC.
