A Map of the White Mountains of New Hampshire 1853. First Edition in Boards with 5 Views after Benjamin Champney on Seperate sheet. Map By George Bond.

by Benjamin Champney, George Bond and John Bartlett

Condition: See description


Publisher: John Bartlett. Large brown cloth boards measuring 8" x 5", gilt and blindstamped. Map measures 17" x 15", Illustration sheet measures 15" x 10". FC disbound, rear good with a bit of a cloth pull upper right corner. Map has a short tear by/from the central crease on left. Fold toning and occasional foxing, Good+ to VG. Etchings (by Wallis) from Champney drawings are edge toned as well, VG+ to near fine condition. A favorite of mine, the Franconia Lake scene, is quite lovely in its simplistic beauty with a small dingy and pair of sightseers. The Bond map with the Champney views is to be considered a cornerstone to any collection of such material. Contrary to Bent The five lithographed views after Champney are not printed on the reverse of the map but rather are on a separate sheet behind the Map. Both sheets are printed on thicker paper than is noted on the more common and smaller folded version. In the past 30 years or so as a book dealer here in the White Mountains I have seen perhaps 8 examples of the larger two formats, this variation only one other time. Much easier to frame 2 sheets than to find 2 copies of this rarity References; Apt, Maps of the White Mountains of New Hampshire; Bent's Bibliography of the White Mountains; Cobb, Maps of New Hampshire to 1900; Historical New Hampshire Vol. 51, No's 3&4, 1996, (Beauty Caught and Kept: Benjamin Champney in the White Mountains.).
