Description:
Geo Witchell, 1764. Map. Fair. No Binding. large engraved map of the 1764 eclipse of the sun, published by George Witchell and inscribed to Nathaniel Bliss, Astronomer Royal. The map is surrounded with explanatory embellishments, together with an explanation at the foot. Measuring 21" x 16", this is an unframed copy showing four folds. Unfortunately it lacks the top left corner and would need to be completed at that point with a facsimile. Four very small holes to the left margin, the dotted border between England and Wales has been coloured pink and two lines linking London with the North have been inked in. On the rear a caricature has been drawn in ink..

Description:
Paris chez le citoyen Lamarche, 1795. Book. Good. Hardcover. hardback, third edition, text and Tables in French, octavo, comprising thirty double page b&w maps, ix [1] + 47 pages text, the maps all tab mounted for binding. The binding quarter cloth with paper covered sides is in a very poor state with much of the spine perished and the boards detached. The front free endpaper is detached but the text block and the maps are all tightly bound, there is marginal browning to the maps and some mild scattered foxing although this primarily is to the verso. With rebinding this would present a very good copy. .
