His height was 4 foot 6; he had crooked legs and an enormous nose that he would sometimes augment with a paper-mache version whenever anyone stared at his natural nose. Bell began work as an engraver of crests, names, etc. Despite his small stature, he deliberately rode the tallest horse available in Edinburgh, dismounting by a ladder to the cheers of onlookers. Bell produced almost all of the copperplate engravings for the 1st-4th editions of the Britannica: 160 for the 1st, 340 for the 2nd, 542 for the 3rd, and 531 for the 4th. For the 1st edition, Bell produced three full pages of anatomically accurate depictions of dissected female pelvises and of foetuses in wombs for the midwifery article; these illustrations shocked King George III who commanded that the pages be ripped from every copy. After Macfarquhar died in 1793, Bell bought out his heirs and became sole owner of the Britannica until his own death in 1809. HAND MADE LAID PAPER. The paper is original 18th century “Laid paper”. Laid paper is a type of paper having a ribbed texture imparted by the manufacturing process in the 18th century. In pre-mechanical papermaking (from the 12th century into the 19th century), the laid pattern was produced by the wire sieve in the rectangular mold used to produce single sheets of paper. A worker would dip the mold into a vat containing diluted linen pulp, then lift it out, tilt it to spread the pulp evenly over the sieve, and, as the water drained out between the wires, shake the mold to lock the fibers together. In the process, the pattern of the wires in the sieve was imparted to the sheet of Paper.

An Accurate Map of Great Britain, France & Ireland LONDON Laurie & Whittle 1794

An Accurate Map of Great Britain, France & Ireland, with Part of Spain, Germany, Denmark &c. Showing at One View the True Bearing and Horizontal Distance, of any Place within 700 Miles of London; Drawn from the Best Authorities. London: Laurie & Whittle, 1794. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 20 1/8″ x 20 1/8″. This unusual yet beautiful hemispherical projection of Western Europe is centered on London, such that the compass bearings are drawn as straight lines. The map has a 700 mile radius that encompasses the Faroe Islands, Bergen in Norway, Munich in Germany, Parma in Italy, the northern coasts of Majorca and Minorca, and Galicia in Spain. Countries, counties, and cities are all labeled. The map also features lovely pastel hand-coloring, with England colored a vibrant pink that stands out markedly against pale green France. In fact, the latter country seems almost to fade into the water, another possible element of the map’s colonial-era image of British supremacy. An annotation in the lower left corner attests to the map’s accuracy. The map is in good condition with very minor tears and wear to the edges of the sheet, not affecting the image. Small stain on the bottom border and very minor foxing. Their firm combined Laurie’s engraving skills with Whittle’s social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates. This unusual map is a fascinating example of their work. Old & Rare Books, Maps & Prints. Since 1925 116 East 59th Street, New York, NY 10022 New York City’s oldest independent book store.
