Public Record Office and the British Library, London, first edition, 1993, 1993
Cloth, 4to, 29 cm, 120 pp maps Includes reduced-size reproductions of maps produced during the period 1485-1603. From the blurb: "In 1500 maps were rare objects, little used and understood, but less than a century later the production and usage of maps of all kinds had been transformed. Not only were they created and consulted by men of affairs for a host of practical purposes, they were also a familiar part of everyday life, printed on playing cards, woven into tapestries, engraved on medals and included as illustrations in bibles. The map, as we understand it today - a plan drawn accurately to a defined scale, constructed by triangulation, and showing features by a range of conventional signs - was effectively an invention of the sixteenth century. So too was the printed map, most strikingly exemplified by the outstanding county maps of England and Wales produced by the great pioneer, Christopher Saxton. The spread of printing contributed more than anything else to the widespread acceptance of the use of maps among the public at large. Professor Harvey draws on the extensive collections of The British Library and the Public Record Office to discuss the maps themselves and their impact on the political and social life of England in the spheres of the military, government, towns, landed estates, buildings, and the law. Superbly illustrated throughout in colour and black and white, his account is an informative and accessible introduction to this revolutionary period in the history of cartography.

Fine in publishers cloth in like dustjacket. 1st edition, 1st issue. Neglected since the 1890s, the eight medieval regional maps of the Holy Land that are known to have existed are interesting, picturesque and mostly colourful. Many of the surviving copies and fragments are reproduced here for the first time, including three large maps that are among medieval Europe's finest cartographic monuments. Painstaking detective work on the manuscripts reveals much that is new: two maps lurking behind others drawn over them, a map changed into an erotic fantasy by a nineteenth-century forger, the origin of the mysterious grid pattern on some of the maps and much else. This beautifully produced large-format book is an important contribution to our understanding of medieval culture, early mapping and crusading Europe. ISBN 9780712358248. Artikel-Nr.: PJH39978.

Dartmoor explores the complex and fascinating history of one of southern England's greatest National Parks, an area of enormous interest to naturalists and tourists alike. The loneliest wilderness in England. This has been said more often of Dartmoor than any other part of our country. Traditionally in the world of fiction as well as that of fact, Dartmoor has been renowned as a vast empty moorland area, the property of nature rather than of man. It has always been the public’s idea of a lonely place. Not many generations ago it was regarded with a certain amount of awe. Nowadays it is one of our most important centres of recreation and an island up upland England of abundant interest to the naturalist. In 1951 it was nominated a National Park, one of the first of several places that have been so designated in Great Britain. This moorland-covered island of granite, once regarded as forbidding, now, to the most of us, romantic, rises inn the midst of a rolling sea of red Devon farmland. Here groups of devoted naturalists are attempting to west from nature some of her closely-guarded secrets. Geologists seek the true origin of the valuable pockets of china clay, or even of granite itself. Botanists delve into the relationship between the present vegetation and the relict fragments of native woodland which grow higher than any other woods in Britain. In contrast with the world of stranger isolation in the heart of Dartmoor, where the ponies roam and the black-faced sheep graze, is a fringe of lively villages like Widdicombe, whose very name spells romance.

[ New York ], 1887
Pamphlet. 4 pages. 9 x 12 inches. An extract from the New York Medical Journal of April 9th, 1887, this brochure is in effect an advertisement for Dr. Girdner's Telephonic Bullet Probe in conjunction with the Hazard, Hazard & Co. manufacturers, the only place "a reliable instrument can be had at present" according to the brochure. Old folds from mailing. Tears at the folds and chipping not affecting the text in the margins. Stabilized with archival tape at several folds. Nicely illustrated with cuts from Hazard, Hazard & Co. Pamphlet. In July 1881 President Garfield was shot in the back by Charles Guiteau. The bullet proved hard to locate given the investigatory procedures of the day. Alexander Graham Bell tried to make a new tool using balanced induction coils to determine where the bullet was located. The tool failed because the bullet was too far removed from the surface (this was discovered after the fact). Bell returned home, and experimented frantically, trying to find another solution, and invented a "Telephonic Bullet Probe" which could be used for such applications, but Garfield had died in the interim. He later showed physicians this new tool, and Dr. Girdner was present at those experiments. Some years later, Girdner started using the tool in his own practice, and advertising it. The present offering is an example of that advertising derived from a "report" in the New York Medical Journal of it's history and current application. While in this brochure he gives proper credit to Alexander Graham Bell it turns out that this didn't remain the case for long. He eventually claimed the invention as his own, something Bell was apparently aware of but didn't protest. (See Bell: Alexander Graham Bell and the Conquest of Solitude by Robert V. Bruce for an in depth historical review of the events). Scarce, with a place holder but no institutional holdings attached in Worldcat/OCLC. Good. Artikel-Nr.: 23013.
