Sheet (26cm x 40cm), image (22.5 cm x 30cm); decorative title cartouche at upper left with city and river scenes, conjoined cornucopias; ample lateral, good top and bottom margins.

The northern watershed of the  River Main (Mein) is shown in some detail, as is the watershed of the Weser to the north, formed by the confluence of the Fulda and Werra. Cities and political divisions typical of the region in the 18th century are also shown in some detail. The copperplate engraving is dark and clear. Generally, an attractive map of  Riesling country.

Description:

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1857. First edition (i- xii; 13- 318, advert); illustrated by 300 engravings (some full-page, others in-text) showing designs in generic Gothic  manner together with floor-plans, details of door and window treatment, etc. Large octavo in brown publisher’s cloth, gilt decorations and titles, perished spine skilfully replaced (colour advert on card for encaustic tiles, some damp staining, bound in at rear), new endpapers. Vaux was an associate of Andrew Downing during the last few years of Downing’s life which ended in a tragic steamboat accident on the Hudson (The book is dedicated to the Downings). Vaux went on to work with Frederick Law Olmsted on, among other projects, the design for Central Park, NYC. The ‘villas and cottages’ of the title are in reality quite ambitious houses, suggestive of English country houses a growing  upper middle class might fancy for themselves. General wear to cover edges, only minor light foxing. A very good copy of an important… Read more

Description:
London: T. Osborn, 1746. Second edition (xvi, adverts., 487,4, index). Tall octavo in full leather (professionally refurbished original calf) with nine engraved copperplate illustrations, two folding, by Cole including that of a plough, the world (as known in the mid- eighteenth century), the constellations, plane and olive trees, and hyacinthus poeticus (which resembles the turk’s head lily). With the bookplate of [Canon] A. F. Smethurst. The greater part of each page in Martyn’s translation is devoted to a commentary on perhaps a half-dozen lines of Virgil’s text, and much of that commentary comprises comparisons between and among translations as, for example, between those of Dryden and Trapp. John Martin (1699- 1768), professor of Botany at Cambridge, wrote towards the end of a time when the study of natural history in all its branches was pre-occupied with the translation and exegesis of the works of natural history originating in classical antiquity, among which Virgil’s… Read more
