About This Item

London: T. Osborne (et al), 1761. All 4 volumes, contemporary banded calf, banded spines (some legibility difficult). Most hinges loose and starting. Gilt-ruled coves. Ex-library with plate of the Theological Seminary Library (Gettysburg, Pa.), with de-acquisition stamp; numerous library markings, including on spine. All 6 folding, copperplate engraved maps by Thomas Jefferys (Europe, Africa, Madagascar & Zanzibar, Asia, North America, South America) are very good or better (b&w as issued). Numerous portraits of naval figures. Text intact in all 4 volumes (587pp, 580pp, 488pp, 519pp). A very nice, uncommon, early set, although apparently Campbell wasn't that knowledgeable about some of his subjects. Samuel Johnson was a friend and acquaintance of the author. . 3rd.

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.
