Full Title Mappamondo costrutto su quello di Gardner, accresiuto di tutte le nuove scopoerte e Dedicato A.S. M. Ferdinando II Re del Regno dell Due Sicile
List No 10406.000
Note Eight sheets joined. Based on James Gardner's 1825 world map (see our 4755.000) but updated. "Monumental Wall Map of the World, published by Official State Engineer Raffaele Mancini in Naples and dedicated to the King of the Two Sicilies. This colossal production was created specially for the court of King Ferdinando II of the Two Sicilies. It provides a remarkably large image of globe during the 1830s, a time of great transition and development, particularly in the Americas, Africa and Oceania. A sumptuous, expensive production, it was issued in only a very small print run, and is today exceptionally rare, this being 1 of only 3 known surviving examples. In creating the present map, Mancini employed James Gardner's 1825 World map as a model, although, with significant cartographic updates. Gardner drew his cartographic details from Aaron Arrowsmith's 1814 World Map on a Globular Projection featuring 36-inch hemispheres. Mancini's production is done to the same gargantuan scale as Gardner's map, which is regarded as perhaps "one of the largest World Maps produced in the early 1800's". His map represents one of the last great examples of Italian royal court patronage of cartography in Italy, which for centuries had maintained a tradition responsible for many of the world s finest and most historically important maps and globes. The production of the present map would have been very expensive and labor intensive, and would certainly have been funded as a special commission for the court of Ferdinando II. " (Ruderman)

Full Title Mei guo san fan shi hua qiao qu : xiang xi tu = Map of San Francisco Chinatown. Published September, 1929. Compiled by J. P. Wong.
List No 10300.000
Note Lithograph map with 2 insets, showing the extent of Chinatown in San Francisco and, in the second inset map, the extent of Oakland's Chinatown. Drawn by J. P. Wong. The main map is in Mandarin and English. Oriented with north towards lower right. It is the first map made by Chinese Americans of San Francisco for the Chinese community. The map depicts the largest Chinatown in North America during the Roaring '20s, an especially dramatic period in the neighborhood's history. It shows city blocks and building lots, each with appropriate street address numbers. The map was made for the Benevolent Association also known as the Chinese Six companies formed in 1882. The map is horizontally centered on Grant Street the heart of the neighborhood, bordered by Bush Street, Broadway Street on the north, Powell Street on the west, and Montgomery Street on the east. The street names and a few properties are in English, all other Chinese businesses and residence are in Chinese. This copy with applied water color showing Chinatown as delineated in Willard B. Farwell's 1885 large folding map "Official map of Chinatown in San Francisco Chinatown" made for the Board of Supervisors reporting on the condition of the Chinese Quarter and the Chinese of San Francisco (see our 6714.000). The 1885 map was also issued in smaller size in the San Francisco Municipal Report of 1884-85 (see our 5807.000). The color scheme on this 1929 map appears to be updated significantly from the 1885 map. Some of the updating may relate to the rebuilding of Chinatown after the 1906 earthquake. It is possible that the color was not applied in the original publishing, but later by someone else.

Note Description in a cartouche in the bottom right of the globe. 1 map : copperplate engraving on 12 sheets, hand colour. Dates estimated. This circular map filled the right half of Blaeu's enormous world map, which was published under the title 'Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula'. Although undated, the dedication to Gaspar de Bracamonte Guzmán, a Spanish representative at the Treaty of Westphalia, probably places the publication sometime around the conclusion of the treaty in 1648. As new information continued to arrive the map was revised multiple times, producing at least four different states. This is an impression of the first, pulled before Blaeu made major revisions to the depiction of China. As published, Blaeu's two maps were framed in a border filled with smaller terrestrial and astrological maps. Judging from the extant copies, the two hemispheres were often extracted from the map and, in this case, presented as separate sheets. In doing so, however, the compilers of the Klencke Atlas reversed the order in which the hemispheres are presented on Blaeu's sheet, presumably to give precedence to Europe.

Small fictive sheet in the bottom left, held above the waves by sea putti, carrying an acknowledgement to Samuel Blommaert for information about the Cabo Blanco and Cabo Negro (Angola).

Samuel Blommaert served three terms as director of the Dutch West India Company, and he also oversaw voyages to North America and Africa. His papers proved to be a fruitful source of information about the west coast of Africa, and even after his death in 1651 he continued to be credited by cartographers, particularly for supplying details about the two capes mentioned by Blaeu in his acknowledgement (for a similar posthumous note see Maps K.Top.117.30.). Among the numerous animals depicted in the African interior are two rhinoceros based on Albrecht Dürer's famously misleading woodcut, which for centuries remained the stock image of the animal.

Full Title (The Siege of the Citadel of Saint Martin on the Isle de Re)
List No 8685.000
Note These are a set of six prints illustrating the Siege of the Citadel of Saint Martin on the Isle de Re. Callot also engraved the Seige of La Rochelle at the same time, also in six prints with decorative borders (Lieure 655). Both are remarkable, but the Seige of Saint Martin view is extraordinary in its use of engraving line darkness to indicate depth of space, a technique that Callot pioneered. These famous battle scenes were drawn and etched by Callot as bird's-eye views and maps. Callot received commissions to commemorate these two spectacular battle scenes from Louis XIII in 1628. The Siege of La Rochelle and St. Martin on the L'Ile de Re took place between the French Royal forces of Louis XIII and the Huguenots of La Rochelle and the English forces of Charles I at St. Martin in the years 1625-1628. The Siege of Saint-Martin-de-Ré, occurred in the French isle of Ile de Ré around the fortress of the city of Saint-Martin-de-Ré, when Duke of Buckingham tried to occupy the island in 1627. After three months of combat and sieges however, Governor Toiras and a relief force of French ships and troops managed to repel the Duke of Buckingham, who was forced to withdraw in defeat. This encounter followed another defeat for Buckingham, the 1625 Cádiz Expedition, and is considered as the opening conflict of the Anglo-French War of 1627-1629, itself a part of the Thirty Years' War.

List No 10015.000
Note This map provides a detailed view of the extraordinary rebuilding of downtown San Francisco only six years after the devastating earthquake and fire of 1906. Just a few lots remain unbuilt. It is a scarce map that was issued in two forms: on thin paper as a folded map with the Supplement to the San Francisco Standard Guide, and on thicker paper unfolded (our copy, linen backed as a wall map). A reduced size reproduction of the copy at the San Francisco Society of California Pioneers Library was issued in 1968 (see our 10016.000). The Panama Pacific Exposition of 1915 is shown prospectively. A second issue of this larger map is at the Wells Fargo Museum in San Francisco - it adds a winding road going up Mount Tamalpais as well as names of buildings on the block bounded by First, Bryant, Brannon, and Beale streets.

List No 2262.000
Note 1st ed. Stevenson identifies 3 issues. Very beautiful and elaborate map showing the hand of Robert Pearsal Smith (has similarities graphically to his N.Y. State Map of 1860). The map is drawn by J.M. Atwood, but is credited to J.C. Smith, "Author of Harper's Gazetteer, Colton's County Map of the U.S., Traveler's Guide, &c." R.P. Smith is obviously competing with J.H. Colton by using J.C. Smith's name. Also, the population statistics for the 1860 census are listed, "in advance of official publication" (see Colton letter dated 1861 on this subject). Many inset views relating to the civil war, portraits of Union Generals, and thematic map insets. The U.S. map bears a striking resemblance to Colton's U.S. map of the same period (We suspect intentional on Smith's part) but it is different. H.H. Lloyd did a similar map in 1866 (High Ridge #18-165), probably by obtaining Smith's map copyright for this map and the New York State Map in 1865 when Smith left the map publishing business (Ristow p 377). With black top and bottom rollers. Full color by county. Inset showing crops and animals of the U.S. Table of distances. Table of time differences. Profiles route of Lieut. A.W. Whipple's route for Pacific Railroad.

List No 4874.000
Note Ristow mentions two editions with the same title, date and imprint, and with the later edition having "a number of changes and additions... in the southern Alabama portion of the map." We believe this copy is the first edition as we can detect no plate changes in the areas mentioned. This is the first large scale map of Georgia and it ranks in importance with the other large Southern State and Territory maps of the period: Wilson's South Carolina of 1822, Madison's Virginia of 1807 and 1818, Price and Strothers' North Carolina of 1808, and Vignoles' Florida of 1823. While it was undoubtedly the most accurate Georgia map when published, it quickly came under criticism by Tanner in his Geographical Memoir of 1823 for his American Atlas - he found the delineation of the Savannah River to be more correct in the Wilson 1822 Map of South Carolina. It has a lovely cartouche vignette, a table of distances, a statistical table, and "Remarks, Statistical and Geological." Streeter: "All in all an important and elaborate map of Georgia in the first part of the nineteenth century." Full color by county, without rollers.
