About This Item

Amsterdam: Abraham Wolfgang, 1688 A fair copy of the first French edition of Richard Blome's guide to British interests in North America with 6 (of 7) folding maps. The 1st edition was in English and published a year previously. The maps for the French edition were redrawn close copies of those in the English edition, and 4 of the maps in this copy have Robert Morden's name on them. The guide is a nice pocket size and was popular, however, some of the mapping is a little strange - the map of New York is notable in that Manhattan is shown as a peninsula not an island. This copy is missing the map of the Mid-Atlantic States - "Nouvelle Carte de la Pensylvanie Maryland, Virginie et Nouvelle Iarsey". The book is in contemporary full leather which is very worn with cracked hinges and a delaminating spine. The boards are reasonably sound with some leather loss at corners and a small area on the front board. The endpapers are marbled. Contents: 2 blank; title; avertissement 2pp; Text 1-331 pp Fin; index table; 2 final blanks. The maps are: Carte de la Jamaique; Ile des Barbades; Les Barmudes; Nouvelle Carte de la Caroline; Nouvelle Angleterre et Nouvel York; and Partie de L'Amerique. Contents are generally clean with the odd spot or mark. There is a repaired fold tear to Nouvelle Angleterre and a small tear at the base of p95. There are some light ink marks on p 299.
