$1,850.00Michelot-and-BremondCarte-Particuliere-des-cotes-D-Espagne-et-de-BarbarieAntique, attractive early 18th-century working portolan-style nautical chart of the western Mediterranean Sea with the southern coasts of France and Spain. This original rare nautical chart was produced by Henri Michelot and Laurent Bremond, who had close, first-hand experience with many of the areas they charted. <BR> </BR> Chart coverage includes the Mediterranean coasts of Europe and Africa (Barbarie) from the Strait of Gibraltar and Ceuta in the west through Marbella, Malaga, Almeria and Cartagena to Cap Palle in the east. Dozens of guard towers are noted along the coast; they would have been crucial during that era of intense raiding from the Barbary coast. Includes two large insets, one of Gibraltar and the other of the Bay of Tangier (Tanger). <BR> </BR> Some unique features not found in other <a rel="nofollow" href= "/MichelotBremondBackground.aspx">Michelot and Bremond</a> antique nautical charts include a depiction of a navigator (Michelot?) sitting atop bales of merchandise embellished with initials and symbols related to the authors and engraver, and surrounded by maritime objects and navigational instruments including chart, compass and cross-staff. A separate and unexplained distance scale is included inside the neat line near bottom left. As these additional scales are found only on small-scale charts, their probable intended usage is for navigators' placement of divider points so as not to damage the master distance scale by repeated pricking. <br></br> Stopp
5171Two maps of the  West Coast of North America by Vaugondy.Detailsde Vaugondy, Robert1772
Carte de La Californie et des Pays Nord Ouest 1772
de Vaugondy, Robert
$325.00de-Vaugondy--RobertCarte-de-La-Californie-et-des-Pays-Nord-Ouest-1772Two maps of the West Coast of North America, from the Strait of Anian to Cabo San Lucas and the southern tip of Baja California in Mexico. The work by Vaugondy consists of comparative geography from two maps derived from Mercator (1612) and Petrus Planicus (1641). The larger map (by Mercator) shows the Strait of Anian, Anian Regnum, Quivira Regnum, the Sierra Nevada mountains, and Nova Albion. Includes over 30 coastal place names, including Cabo Mendocino, San Miguel (San Diego), Cape Fortuna, and Laguna de los Apostolos. On both maps the lower end of the Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas is referred to as "Cabo California" but only on the larger map is northwestern Mexico called "Nova Granada". <br></br> The smaller inset map (by Planicus) also shows the Strait of Anian, and depicts an open sea above, suggesting a Northwest Passage in the Arctic Circle. The northwest coastline on North America differs radically, and only Anian Regnum and Quivira Regnum are located, the latter considerably south of the location on the larger map. The smaller map includes a similar number of coastal place names including Cabo Blanco , Cabo de San Francisco and los Farilones (the Farallon islands).

Coverage on this fine historic French nautical artifact covers areas in Florida that are today's <b>St. Petersburg, Tampa, Brandon, Bradenton and Sarasota</b>. Only one sale recorded in AMPR, 28 years ago. <br></br> Le Rouge noted only a few key features including: two references to "Eau douce" (Trans. 'sweet water'); a location noted as "Black Rocks"; "Egmont Island"; and "Long Island" (today's Longboat Key). <br></br> From Pilote américain septentrional by <b>George le Rouge</b>, this is one of the <b>earliest available large-scale nautical charts of Tampa Bay</b> with the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico. Rouge's Pilote américain septentrional drew heavily upon the work of William Faden and Thomas Jefferys. The maps were modified with French nomenclature but their British origin explains why some place names are in English. Latitude is noted but no metrics exist for longitude. Distance scale is in English miles. Manuscript number "27" in upper right.

Lot contains 2 page of legal opinion, supported by the plat, probably from a report to Congress. <br></br> Choctaw Point is located on the west bank of the Mobile River about one mile south of downtown Mobile and one mile SW of the U.S.S. Alabama memorial. A brick lighthouse (63' Fixed light), visible for 15 miles, existed at Choctaw Point from 1831 until the beginning of the Civil War. The American Lighthouse Guide of 1845 found the light of little use in navigating the Dog River. <div class="indenttextblocksingle"> "To mail steamers and bay craft familiar with the shoals, and Choctaw Pass, this light is a valuable aid in dark nights, but of little benefit to strangers. This light is of little utility in consequence of forming too great an angle in its bearing from the courses required through the intricate and narrow channels of the river and passes." (Mills, Robert. The American Light-house Guide: with Sailing Directions, for the Use of the Mariner. 1845. p. 11) </div> Among the land holdings near Choctaw Point that are identified in the map are plots belonging to Antoine Espijo, John Forbes & Co., Regist Burnady, Simon Favre, and John Murrill.

This original, rolled, linen-backed chart, based on data from Lieutenant H.C. Lockyer in 1899, was published by Edward Stanford from Stanford's Geographical Establishment in London on March 1, 1900. Stanford's, established in 1853, remains in business today, now at 7 Mercer Walk in Covent Garden. <br></br> Coverage includes relevant portions of the coast of Ireland, Wales, England, and France, with Cornwall near chart center.

Notable features include Ocklockonee Bay, St. James Island, Oyster Bay, St. Marks and Port Leon, Florida. <br></br> Not a preliminary chart. Full-size antique nautical charts on heavy paper of Apalachee Bay are very scarce, whether by the U.S. Coast Survey or by any other publisher <br></br> Chart number 182. Price when issued 50 cents. J.E. Hilgard, (Washington, DC: United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, 1883) <br></br> This antique chart of the north Florida coast was printed in 1900 from an electrotype copy of the original hand-engraved copper plate, a process the U.S. Coast Survey first adopted around 1850. As a soft medium, copper plates could only withstand print runs of perhaps 200 copies before the plates wore down. To enable larger print runs, a mold of the original plate was created in wax or another soft medium. Then, using an electro-chemical process ( electrotyping ), the mold was coated with a metal layer, typically copper. Printers were then able to produce output from the new electrotype copper copy, while preserving the original. Electrotype copy no. 1.

J. Potter was a wooden side-wheel paddle steamer owned by the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company. The Potter operated on the Columbia River and Puget Sound between 1888 and 1916, and was considered for a time to be the fastest side-wheel steamer in the Northwest U. S. A. Rebuilt in 1901, the Potter then sported a dome with a flagpole instead of a flat roof. By the 1920's the Potter had been withdrawn from passenger service and was used as a quarter boat for construction crews before she was abandoned near Astoria, Washington.

For example sheets 171 and 172 show pasted overlays of an new East Expressway laid over the original 1913 base maps, potentially providing a clear picture of urban renewal in action.

Earliest map of Charlotte, Glades, Hardee, Highlands counties Florida after DeSoto redivision
Dunwody, William E.
$225.00Dunwody--William-E-Earliest-map-of-Charlotte--Glades--Hardee--Highlands-counties-Florida-after-DeSoto-redivisionMap of DeSoto, Charlotte, Glades, Hardee, and Highlands counties in Florida ca. 1922. In 1921 the Florida legislature created the latter four counties out of what had previously been DeSoto County. Possibly the earliest map containing the names of those four new counties. Map is a Fotoprint printed by Foote & Davies Co, Atlanta. <br></br> Published by William Elliott Dunwody (1882-1956) a businessman in Arcadia, Florida, the seat of DeSoto County. Dunwody had interests in real estate, ranching, and citrus farming, and was Chairman of the local Selective Service Board from 1941 to 1954. <br></br> Interesting in that before this Fotoprint was produced a base plat map was edited in manuscript (by Dunwody ?) to show the new county boundaries and features: roads, railroads, towns, lakes; and type of terrain: swamp and muck, pine, or prairie. This item is a product of that enhancement made just after the new counties were created. <br></br> It is ironic that at center left, in one of the marked swampy areas, a manuscript notation is made: <b>"Red dot within green circle represents location your 10 acres."</b> Lucky guy! Key features include the Kissimmee River, Lake Istokpoga, Lake Okeechobee, Charlotte Harbor, and two airbases built in 1917 during early WWI: Carlstrom Field, and Dorr Field.

$1,250.00Bennett--Philip-A-Earliest-U-S--Government-map-television-stations-and-networksThe earliest official large-format map of U.S. television stations and networks from the infancy of TV advertising. By U.S. Department of Commerce Industrial Economist Philip A. Bennet and printed by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey in July, 1949. At the time of publication in 1949 the map clearly shows that numerous states were without a single operating TV station including: Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, South Carolina, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. <br></br> This map is scarce outside of institutional holdings. No copy of the map or record of the sale of this television map is found online. Price when issued 35 cents. <br></br> In January 1948, less than 200,000 TV sets existed in the U.S. This map documents the early distribution of broadcast TV stations, pre-dating the phenomenal growth of the industry. The map was and is important because the geographical distribution of TV stations impacted the size of the television market while TV networks served to lower the cost of content production. <br></br> Shows the 75 existing and 42 prospective analog broadcast television stations and <b>network routes</b> in the United States. Compiled and printed by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (Department of Commerce) to the specifications of Philip A.

Torrey, Bill Sr.
$550.00Torrey--Bill-Sr-Rare-privately-published-map-of-Ossabaw-Island--GeorgiaRare, a privately-published first edition map of Ossabaw Island, Georgia from 1956 with roads, woods, ponds, marsh, and artesian wells as the chief focus. Contains an inset map showing the generalized coastline from Savannah to Brunswick, Georgia. Just behind the Egg Islands, at the north end of Ossabaw Island, Torrey's Landing is simply labeled "Boat House". Two additional maps on the verso. <br></br> The map was created and privately published by William F. "Bill" Torrey Sr., the son of Henry Torrey and Nell Ford Torrey who purchased the island in 1924. Bill Torrey Sr. ran a timber operation and a cattle business, Circle T. Ranch, on Ossabaw Island in the 1950's. The cattle business Torrey operated was no doubt the reason that the location of artesian wells on the island was considered as a key data point. <br></br> Together the three maps were designed for use by visitors to the island, providing route details from the DeSoto hotel in Savannah, GA to the Torrey Dock at Vernon View (verso); then from the dock to St. Catherine's Sound and Ossabaw Sound (verso). Once visitors had docked at Torrey Landing boat house the map (recto) served as a guide to the entire island. This map, by Torrey who knew the island well, is the reference source for place names and island locations on more recent maps. Source (DuBose, Elizabeth. Executive Director, Ossabaw Island Foundation. June, 2020. Personal communication.) <br></br> Ossabaw Island is Georgia's third largest barrier island, with 26,000 acres total - 9,000 acres of high ground. Ossabaw is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east; the Bear River/ Florida Passage of the Intracoastal Waterway to the west; the Ogeechee River to the north; and, St. Catherine’s Sound to the south.
