6821Pictorial economic world map Rich World Poor World. Polyp, 1996.DetailsFitzgerald, Paul1996
Thematic world map Rich World Poor World
Fitzgerald, Paul
$375.00Fitzgerald--PaulThematic-world-map-Rich-World-Poor-WorldAn early, if not the earliest, large format pictorial map of the two-world model, used to attempt to explain the origins of economic inequities between the Global North (Rich World) and the Global South (Poor World). Map concept, text and artwork by Polyp ca. 1996. The map combines infographics with much textual explanation to explain the economic imbalances between the two conceptual worlds. <br><br> The term "Global South" refers to developing countries primarily located in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. These countries tend to be poorer, experience higher income inequality, and have harsh living conditions compared to the wealthier nations of the "Global North," mainly situated in North America, Europe, and Australia. The term "Global South" gained popularity after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, replacing the previous term "Third World," (in a three-world model) which referred to developing nations during the time of colonialism. <br><br> Scarce.

6544Willis Thrall Map of the United States from 1831.DetailsThrall, Willis1831
Map of the United States Compiled from the Most Authentic Sources
Thrall, Willis
$1,900.00Thrall--WillisMap-of-the-United-States-Compiled-from-the-Most-Authentic-SourcesThis scarce "Map of the United States Compiled from the Most Authentic Sources" is a historical map of the United States published in 1831 by Willis Thrall, a cartographer and publisher based in Hartford, Connecticut. Thrall's map includes detailed information about state and territorial boundaries at that time, major cities and towns, rivers, mountains, and other geographical features. The area now containing Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California is labeled "Internal Provinces of Mexico." <br><br> One notable feature of the map is the inclusion of a combined distance table between major cities with population statistics for each in 1820 and 1830. Thrall's map of The United States contains inset maps for: <div class="indenttextblocksingle"> <ul style="list-style-type: circle;"></li> <li>North America</li> <li>City of New York and Vicinity</li> <li>District of Columbia</li> <li>Boston and its' Vicinity</li> </ul> </div> Bottom of the map contains the statement "Copyright Secured." The United States passed its first copyright law on May 31, 1790, under the Copyright Act of 1790. This law established the legal framework in the United States for protecting the original works of authors, including books, maps, and charts, by granting them exclusive rights to their work for a period of 14 years. <br><br> As a native New Orleanian I found it interesting that the map locates a small town north of New Orleans- Madisonville, La. (today pop. < 900). I was unaware that in the 1830s, the area around Madisonville became a very important center for the timber industry. Large sawmills were built along the Tchefuncte River to take advantage of the abundant timber resources in the area, and the town became a hub for shipping timber and other goods to New Orleans.

1060Previouly unrecorded Dutch Golden Age nautical chart of the world.DetailsLoots, Johannes1708
Unrecorded Late Golden Age Dutch Sea Chart of the World
Loots, Johannes
$95,000.00Loots--JohannesUnrecorded-Late-Golden-Age-Dutch-Sea-Chart-of-the-WorldPreviously unrecorded nautical chart of the entire world by Dutch cartographer Johannes Loots. Not recorded in Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici. Not found online. Not in AMPR. <br></br> Likely the only Dutch late Golden-Age unrecorded world nautical chart to surface in the 21st century. Differs from other sea charts of the period in that Loots places van Diemen's Land much farther east (13 degrees) than the others (Robijn, Roggeveen, Goos, Morden, Keulen, Wit, Doncker, Moxon, Halley) all of whom tend to place van Diemen's Land at the longitude of the west coast of the Cape York Peninsula (de Fer an exception). One possible explanation for the mis-alignment is that Hendrik Doncker never included van Diemen's Land on his charts, and as Doncker's apprentice, Loots was never required to deal with that area. <br></br> Covers the entire world. Loot's newly-discovered chart with title cartouche in four languages (1) Is the only known example of any world chart by Loots. (2) Is of a unique design found in no other world chart. (3) Includes tracks of explorers in the southern passage up to 1708, include le Maire, Schouten, Halley and "Vaisseau St. Louis, 1708" the last, just one year after Loots disolved a partnership with Antoni de Winter and Claas de Vries. (4) Is on Mercator's projection. (5) Shows the “Terre Austral du St. Espirit”. <br></br> From Koeman's biography of Johanne's Loots (1665[6]-1726) we know Loots was born in Amsterdam and is not as is sometimes believed one of the two sons of Anthonie (Theunisz) Jacobsz who named themselves Lootsman to confuse cartographic researchers in future centuries. Loots served an apprenticeship under Hendrick Doncker . <br></br> Contact for price.
