A General Chart of the Sea Coast of Europe, Africa & America.
A General Chart of the Sea Coast of Europe, Africa & America. According to E. Wrights or Mercator's Projection.
By H. Moll Geographer.
[n.d., 1720.]
Engraved map. 345 x 285mm (13½ x 11¼"). Original binding folds.
A sea chart centred on the Atlantic Ocean, but also showing all of South America, Africa and the Black Sea. Of interest in the mythical Peypys Island off South America. From Josiah Burchett's 'A Complete History of the Most Remarkable Transactions at Sea, from the Earliest Account... to the Conclusion of the Last War with France''. Edward Wright (1561-1615), a mathmatician and surveyor, not only corrected Mercator's Projection but also published a guide explaining how to use charts using that projection, something that Gerhard Mercator had never done. His work gave British navigators a particular advantage over the competition.

[London: Edward Hatton, 1708.]
Engraved map. Sheet 330 x 480mm (13 x 19"). Trimmed close to printed border, laid on card.
The last state of the famed Braun & Hogenberg map of London, originally published in 1572, but showing London before the destruction of the spire of the Norman St Paul's Cathedral in 1561 (during the reign of Mary I). After passing through the hands of publisher Jan Jannson in Amsterdam (who removed the original title and engraved a new cartouche over the original costumes), the plate was bought by a London publisher and used in Hatton's ''A New View of London; or, an Ample Account of that City'', with an English title replacing the Latin. The original issue is the earliest printed map of London to survive.

A map of the Atlantic, off the Madeiras, covering from southern England in the top right, clockwise to the Slave Coast of Guinea, Cayenne in South America and Newfoundland. Top centre is 'A Table Comparing this Chart with Mr. Popples great Map of the British Empire in America'. This map was first published in 1740, during the War of Jenkins' Ear (1739-48), which was fought over the 'Asiento de Negros', the right for England to sell slaves in Spanish America. Thus the map covers the Triangular Slave Trade. This example was issued just before the outbreak of the Seven Years' War.
