Quarto (26 cm) in modern forest green cloth, mustard endpapers; xl, 288, [2] pp., all page edges gilt; engraved vignette, head- and tail-pieces, some with later hand-coloring heightened with gum arabic; two engraved folding maps (complete). Jean-Baptiste Bourguignon d’Anville, Royal Geographer to the kings of France, was one of the leading geographers and cartographers of his time. He was known for his meticulous research and the reliability of his maps, many of which were considered great improvements over their predecessors and remained trusted cartographical resources throughout the eighteenth and n ineteenth centuries. “D’Anville’s...map of Italy... first indicated numerous errors in the mapping of that country, and was accompanied by a valuable memoir (a novelty in such work), showing in full the sources of the design. A trigonometrical survey which Benedict XIV soon after had made in the papal states strikingly confirmed the French geographer’s results” (Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1911). The work includes d’Anville’s map, “Parallele du contour de l’Italie,” correcting the errors of his predecessors, Guillaume de l’Isle and Nicolas Sanson. Occasional browning to the text, scattered spotting and stains, text block cracked in a few places land at the last leaf, one map with some browning and wear to the edges and with a tear repaired on the verso with tape; else clean and sound, securely bound. Binding is in fine condition. “One of the scarcest of d’Anville’s works,” according to notes penciled on the front endpaper by a previous owner / bookseller. 1.25 kg parcel.

    New York: The Writers Guild, 1927. Grey cloth. pp 222, [2]. Rear cover a little bowed, with a one inch abrasion to the fore edge; page edges yellowed; else fine. Dust jacket has nicks, creases, and a short tear (internally repaired) at head of spine; white spine lightly darkened; small chips to outer corners; rubbing to flap folds with 1.5 inches of rear fold worn away; black front panel has creases to upper inner corner and mild rubbing; VG otherwise and still attractive. With very nice Art Deco illustrated endpapers and front panel of the jacket by Léon Laugier (1879-1962). An historical novel set in Sicily at the end of the 13th century, involving "Soldiers, Sicilian mafiosi, townspeople, shepherds, fishermen, dancers, men at arms, nuns, courtiers, monks, gods, nymphs, tritons, etc.", as well as Roggero Mastrangelo, "last of the Normans" and Charles of Anjou. Willis Vernon Cole was a well-to-do American poet and novelist who lived in Greenwich Village and France. Claiming his failing eyesight was cured by Christian Science, he became an ardent adherent and set up an offfice for healing, where he charged small fees. This landed him in court, charged with practicing medicine without a license. He endured five years of trials and eventually won his case, setting the precedent that allows religious healing to be legal in the United States. This novel concerns the War of the Sicilian Vespers, a rebellion which overturned French rule. Some criminous interest (Mafia). Not in Hubin but probably should be. Not much is known about the artist Laugier, but his work is very appealing.
