About This Item

Cleveland: Bloch & Company , 1959. DJ a bit worn and chipped, but servicable. Cloth cover VG with minimal rubbing. Small stamp of "Puritas School" inside of front and rear boards, but no other markings. Interior contents excellent. There are 4 double-page small map reproductions (of Sanson d'Abbeville's) on heavy paper with outline color: North America (Amerique Septentrionale), Canada or New France (Le Canada, ou Nouvelle France), Florida (La Floride), New Mexico and California (Noveau Mexique, Californie- California as an island here). A nice small production, this was to be one of three volumes (just vol. 1 here) translating Sanson's "L'Amerique". The original title page is reproduced here, and there is a person/place name index. Sanson was geographer for Louis XIV, and a forerunner of the great French mapmakers of the 18th century. 56pp text. . First Edition. Cloth. Very Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

About The Prime Meridian: Antique Maps & Books

The Prime Meridian: Antique Maps & Books is owned and operated by Joel & Deborah Kovarsky. We first opened in 1998, but have had a decades-old interest in old maps, books, and paper, stemming from a comparable long-standing interest in how knowledge is used. Our business is run via the internet. We do not run an open shop, however we do welcome visitors by appointment only. Before attempting a visit, please contact us. We are a specialty business, dealing in antiquarian maps and related books (atlases, history of cartography, selected reference books, etc.). Please feel free to contact us for specific inquiries.
