About This Item

London : Thomas Bennet; John Nicholson; and Daniel Midwinter, 1705 A good copy of the 1st edition in recent full panelled calf bindings with 9 maps, 21 (of 22) plates, 2 frontispieces (one with loss) and 8 engravings in the text. John Harris (1633-1719) was an anglican priest and scientist, specialising in mathematics. He was admitted as an FRS in 1696. His written works were well-regarded and popular and Navigantium was published in 2 further enlarged editions. The 1st edition is relatively scarce and is sought after particularly for the first printings of the Moll maps. The bindings are in near fine clean condition with gilt-lined raised bands to the spine with gilt decoration in the compartments and title and volume labels. There is light scuffing. Internally new endpapers and blanks have been added. This set has been matched against the reference copy held by the Hathi Trust and matches it apart from a misplaced plate, a missing plate, a small misbound section in the appendix and a misplaced map (America). There are numerous mispaginations without loss and a number of small repaired edge tears. Overall the set is very clean with occasional light marking. There are small library stamps to the top corner of the title pages, the verso of 2 maps (one per volume), and the top side margins of a couple of pages in each volume. Please enquire if you would like to see a full report of mispaginations and condition. Contents: Vol I: frontispiece (laid down and missing circa 30%); title; dedication 2 pp; to the Reader 2pp; subscribers' list 2pp; contents 6pp with tipped in paper strip; introduction pp i-lxvii; text pp 1-862 finis with 10 plates, 6 folding maps and 2 engravings in the text; index 1 - 6pp; index 2 - 8 pp finis. Vol II: frontispiece (laid down - some loss in gutter); title (with some expert repair); contents 4pp; folding map of the world; text pp 1-928 finis with 11 plates (one folding), 2 maps and 6 engravings in the text; appendix pp 1-56 with pp 41-48 bound after p 56 without loss; index 1 - 4pp; index 2 - 8pp; finis
