Carte De La Virginie Et Du Maryland Dressee Sur La  Grande Carte Angloise De Mrs. Josue Fry et Pierre Jefferson, De Vaugondy, Gilles Robert
7 De Vaugondy, Gilles Robert Carte De La Virginie Et Du Maryland Dressee Sur La Grande Carte Angloise De Mrs. Josue Fry et Pierre Jefferson
Paris Gilles Robert De Vaugondy 1775 Map Near Fine 
Sheet is approximately 30.5" x 22"; map is approximately 26" x 20". Bright, fresh color. Very light toning and wear. The 'dark' upper marginal area in the accompanying image is a photo shadow; there is no discoloration on the map. This is an exceptionally nice example of De Vaugondy's beautiful single-sheet interpretation of the famous Fry-Jefferson map and one of the most sought after 18th Century maps of Virginia and Maryland. No other contemporary maps provided an equally detailed view of the region, which extends as far east as New Jersey, as far north as Philadelphia, as far south as North Carolina, and as far west as the Alleghany Mountains. Although the title is in French, almost all other text is in English. De Vagoundy first published this map in 1755, however this fifth state printing (no date in the cartouche) was produced in the mid to late 1770s.

There are three imaginary inland lakes labeled: 1) Lacus aqua dulcis adeo magnus ut ex una ripa conspici altara non posit (A freshwater lake so large one shore cannot be seen from the opposite side); 2) In hoc lacu Indigenae argenti grana inveniunt (In this lake, natives find grains of silver); 3) Lacus et insula sarrope, abundat optimus fruct (There is abundant fruit at Lake Sarrope and island.) Clean with several light spots of marginal toning. No rips or tears. Minor offestting of color in the Atlantic Ocean. Tiny pinhole in the lower left corner above the "N" in orientalis.

Matching Set of Jedidiah Morse's First Gazetteers - 2 Volumes, Morse, Jedidiah
20 Morse, Jedidiah Matching Set of Jedidiah Morse's First Gazetteers - 2 Volumes
Boston S. Hall and Thomas & Andrews; Samuel Etheridge 1797 First Edition Leather Very Good - 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Nice set of the first editions of Morse's Gazetteers. Vol. 1, The American Gazetteer . . . Of the American Continent was printed in Boston by Hall, Thomas, and Andrews in 1797. Vol. 2, A New Gazetteer of the Eastern Continent . . . was printed in Boston by Etheridge in 1802. Both volumes are complete with all maps in their original leather covers. Vol. 1 has seven maps (six folding). Vol. 2 has 17 folding maps (the title page mistakenly calls for 18, but the instruction to the binder specifies only 17, all by title). Sound bindings; front hinge of Vol. 1 has been neatly mended. Clean pages. All 24 maps are complete but one; the "Map of the Northern Part of the United States" is missing a 1" x 2" rectangle at the bottom of the inside edge (likely removed during binding). Some of the maps have minor toning and wear to the edges. The margins of several have been trimmed close to the frame-lines. The covers have some wear; the original red and gilt spine labels are in good shape. Overall, very nice. Very hard-to-find as a matched set.
