Description:
Salem: Marine Research Society, 1928. First edition (xvii, 155, index, list of pub’s.). Folio, in plain black cloth. Frontispiece, photo of ‘Constitution’ c. 1910. Plates and detailed plans of sails, rigging, decks and furniture, gun ports, etc., as found on a viking ship, the ‘Santa Maria’, the ‘Mayflower’, the ‘Constituition’, the ‘Flying Cloud’, and the ‘Bluenose’ prepared by Magoun of the department of Naval Architecture at MIT, with details also of 17th century English and Dutch merchant vessels. All together, thirty fine b&w photo plates and sixteen measured plans (double-page, folding). Principal emphasis is the ‘Constitution’ which the U.S. Navy had at the time set about restoring. Magoun notes the objections of some of his colleagues to the inclusion of the Canadian fishing schooner ‘Bluenose’ as somehow ‘unpatriotic’ and remarks, not entirely persuasively, that one fishing boat is like every… Read more

Description:

Paris, 1686. Sheet (23cm x 15cm), image (17cm x 12.5cm). B&w engraved map from das Mitternachtige America (Fig. 8) showing the eastern half of North America-- Labrador, Hudson Bay, the Great Lakes (‘Mer Douce’) and St. Lawrence River, ‘Nouvelle France’ (north of Superior east to Acadia, or New Brunswick, and south along the Atlantic seaboard ), ‘Virginie’ (extends north and west beyond Illinois), and Floride (as the lower Mississippi); Lower California (‘I. Californie’) apparently an island off the coast of ‘Nouveau Mexique’; also Mexico (‘Nouvelle Espagne’), Central America, and the northern region of South America. For some reason, perhaps a blindness induced by imperial ambition, no mention is made of the well-established British colonies from Massachusetts south to New York and Virginia. The work of French cartographer Allain Manesson Mallet (1630- 1706) appears in the modestly titled Description de l’Universe (1683) and Les Travaux de Mars (1684). Wide left and lower… Read more

Description:
Dublin: S. Price, et al., 1782. Second edition (156, Postscript). The Dublin printing followed immediately the completion in 1781 of the fourth book (and of the complete work). Duodecimo, in modern calf skillfully repaired by John Burbidge, gilt titles to spine. A garden is beautiful, says Mason, for the same reasons a landscape painting is beautiful (‘Beauty which results from a well-chosen variety of curves’); indeed, the two are, in his view, ‘sister arts’. To plant a flower garden is to plant a landscape (Something Claude Monet did for somewhat different reasons). Given this affection for the picturesque, Mason disparages gardens designed on ‘architectural’ principles, ‘a judicious symmetry of right lines..which our anscestors borrowed from the French and Dutch’ but which was ‘never adopted by Nature herself, and therefore constantly to be avoided by those whose business it is to embellish Nature’. (Architecture in picturesque terms is most… Read more
