Map, Carte d’Armagnac, by Guillaume De L’Isle, Del’Isle, Delisle. Published by Phillipe Buache, Paris, 1745. Some water stains top left & top right. On quite thick paper. My backlit photo shows the distinctive “chain & laid” mould marks of pre-1800 hand-made paper. Verso: pagination “29″, otherwise blank. Plate 25″wide x 19½” 640mm x 500mm. Sheet 31″wide x 22½” 800mm x 570mm. The De L’Isle family fl. 1760 (also written Delisle) were, in composite, a mapmaking tour de force who redefined early 18th century European cartography. Claude De L’Isle (1644 -1720), the family patriarch, was Paris based a historian and geographer under Nicholas Sanson. De L’Isle and his sons were proponents of the school of “positive geography” and were definitive figures, defining the heights of the Golden Age of French Cartography. Of his twelve sons, four, Guillaume (1675- 1726), Simon Claude (1675 – 1726), Joseph Nicholas (1688 – 1768) and Louis (1720 – 1745), made a significant contributions to cartography. Without a doubt Guillaume was the most remarkable member of the family. It is said that Guillaume’s skill as a cartographer was so prodigious that he drew his first map at just nine years of age. He was tutored by J. Cassini in astronomy, science, mathematics and cartography. By applying these diverse disciplines to the vast stores of information provided by 18th century navigators, Guillaume created the technique that came to be known as “scientific cartography”, essentially an extension of Sanson’s “positive geography”. This revolutionary approach transformed the field of cartography and created a more accurate picture of the world. Among Guillaume’s many firsts are the first naming of Texas, the first correct map of the Mississippi, the final rejection of the insular California fallacy, and the first identification of the correct longitudes of America. Stylistically De L’Isle also initiated important changes to the medium, eschewing the flamboyant Dutch style of the previous century in favor of a highly detailed yet still decorative approach that yielded map both beautiful and informative. Guillaume was elected to the French Academie Royale des Sciences at 27. Later, in 1718, he was also appointed “Premier Geographe du Roi”, an office created especially for him. De L’Isle personally financed the publication of most of his maps, hoping to make heavy royalties on their sales. Unfortunately he met an untimely death in 1728, leaving considerable debt and an impoverished child and widow. De L’Isle’s publishing firm was taken over by his assistant, Phillipe Buache who became, posthumously, his son in law. The other De L’Isle brothers, Joseph Nicholas and Louis De L’Isle, were employed in the Service of Peter the Great of Russia as astronomers and surveyors. They are responsible for cataloguing and compiling the data obtained from Russian expeditions in the Pacific and along the northwest coast of America, including the seminal explorations of Vitus Bering and Aleksei Chirikov. The De L’Isles, like their rivals the Vaugondys, must be considered speculative geographers. Speculative geography was a genre of mapmaking that evolved in Europe, particularly Paris, in the middle to late 18th century. Cartographers in this genre would fill in unknown areas on their maps with speculations based upon their vast knowledge of cartography, personal geographical theories, and often dubious primary source material gathered by explorers and navigators. This approach, which attempted to use the known to validate the unknown, naturally engendered many rivalries. The era of speculatively cartography effectively ended with the late 18th century explorations of Captain Cook, Jean Francois de Galaup de La Perouse, and George Vancouver. Europe free World free.

1745 N Tindal Original Antique Map Siege of Douai, Flanders, Nth France in 1710

Intrenchment of the Army of the Allies to cover the Siege of Douay against the French Army that came to raise it in June 1710. Tindal, Nicolas 1687 – 1774. 19 1/2in x 15 1/2in (495mm x 395mm). (A+) Fine Condition. This original copper-plate engraved antique map, plan of the Siege of Douai, Flanders in Northern France – during the Spanish War of Succession (1701-13) – was engraved by John Basire and was published in the 1745 edition of Nicholas Tindals Continuation of Mr. Rapin\’s History of England. Paper thickness and quality: – Heavy and stable Paper color : – off white Age of map color: – Early Colors used: – Green, pink, blue General color appearance: – Authentic Paper size: – 19 1/2in x 15 1/2in (495mm x 395mm) Plate size: – 19 1/2in x 15 1/2in (495mm x 395mm) Margins: – Min 1/2in (12mm). Margins: – None Plate area: – None Verso: – None. Background: A large battle plan showing both siege and works against a fortified Douai, Flanders and the detailed dispositions and battle lines of Lord Marlborough\’s army against the French, and thier attempt to lift the siege in June 1710. Successive sieges from 1710 to 1712 during the Spanish War of Succession (1701-13), almost completely destroyed Douai by the British Army. By 1713, the town was fully integrated into France. Douai became the seat of the Parliament of Flanders. De Rapins publication chronicles the History of Britain from the invasion of the Romans to the death of Charles I. Very few comprehensive histories of England existed at the time and Tindal added his three-volume Continuation, of the Kingdom, from the reigns of James II to George II. Tindal\\\’s translation of de Rapins History, was first published in 1727. Tindal enlarged the volumes in their second edition (1732) to contain notes, genealogical tables and maps of his own composition. In 1745 Tindal published Tindal’s Continuation of Mr. Rapin’s History of England. Included with this edition was an atlas containing 45 maps, battle and town plans from the Spanish War of Succession (1701-13) that were engraved by Richard William Seale and John Basire. These maps represent battles that took place during the War of Spanish Succession, concluded by the Treaties of Utrecht. The war resulted from a dispute over who should inherit Spain and its possessions after its Habsburg rulers in 1700. The last Habsburg king of Spain, Charles II d. 1700 had left the throne to his closest relative in female line: Philippe de France, duke of Anjou, grandson of Louis XIV (Felipe V of Spain). The closest relatives in male line, the Habsburgs of Austria, disputed this claim, and many European nations did not want to see French princes reigning over both kingdoms. The Utrecht treaties recognized Felipe V of Spain, but transferred the Spanish possessions in the Netherlands and Italy to Austria and to Savoy. To reach the goal of separating the crowns of France and Spain, the treaties required Felipe V to relinquish all claims to the French throne, and the remaining French princes to relinquish all claims to the Spanish throne. The War of the Spanish Succession, was also known as Marlboroughs Wars, that was fought in Europe and the Mediterranean, and were the last and the bloodiest of the Wars between England and France under Louis XIV, and the first in which Britain played a major military role in European military affairs. In 1685 after the death of his father he moved to England but after being unable to find employment moved to Holland and enlisted in French volunteers at Utrecht commanded by his cousin Daniel de Rapin. He accompanied the prince of Orange to England in 1688 and participated in the Irish campaigns of the siege of Carrickfergus, Battle of the Boyne and Limerick. Rapin resigned to become tutor to the Earl of Portlands son. He settled in Holland where he began work on The History of England. It was published in Holland in 1724 in 8 volumes. The work was an attempt to be exhaustive in the spirit of the eighteenth century philosophies by treating the subject from prehistoric times up to the date of publication. Please note all items auctioned are genuine, we do not sell reproductions. A Certificate of Authenticity (COA) can be issued on request. What is an Antique Map. The word Antique in the traditional sense refers to an item that is more than a hundred years old. The majority of antique maps for sale today come from books or atlases and have survived due to the protection offered by the hardback covers. The first thing to determine when staring a collection or purchasing an item, is what is important to you. Most collectors prefer to build their collections around a theme. You may decide to collect maps from one region or country, charting its development through time. Similarly you could collect maps of one particular period in time, by type i. Sea or celestial charts or by cartographer. The collector might also want to consider the theme of cartographical misconceptions such as California as an island or Australia as Terra Australis or the Great Southern Land. The subject is so wide that any would-be-collector has almost endless possibilities to find his own little niche within the field, and thereby build a rewarding collection. Starting a collection & pricing. Pricing is based on a number of different factors, the most important of which is regional. In any series of maps the most valuable are usually the World Map and the America/North America. The World because it is usually the most decorative and America because it has the strongest regional market. Other factors that come into play re: price is rarity, age, size, historical importance, decorative value (colour) and overall condition and quality of paper it is printed on.

The maps themselves are in excellent antique condition with no visible flaws. Being framed behind glass for the last 50-70 years has preserved them. Each map had hand water-coloring applied a long time ago. A few of the colors are still quite vibrant, while most have aged into warm, muted tones. Please see all photos. These maps, without folds, are from the large format edition of the Atlas National Illustre de France, by Victor Levasseur, published in Paris in 1852. Each map image measures approximately 11 by 17 inches and each framed map measures 15.5 by 20.75 inches. The six maps are as follows. De Lot et Garonne. Venable’s Fine Arts, 1615 Conn Ave. Was a renowned DC gallery for many decades. The gallery, which also did framing and restoration work, was founded by Samuel J. Venable in 1892 in downtown Washington. At its height during Venable’s tenure, the business employed 13 framers. It moved to 1615 Connecticut Ave. NW at the end of World War II and occupied various premises along that avenue until it closed at the end of 1997. Two of the maps have ink stamps from another framer in nearby Alexandria, Virginia, that is no longer in business. One of those frames has been reinforced around the back of the frame with tape, as has one of the Venable frames. A couple of the frames have small scratches on the gold painted wood where the frames were stacked without padding between them. Each framed map weighs about 3 lbs. I pack very well… However, using free local pick-up will save you a lot. Every vintage and antique item has a story to tell. Small, as-made anomalies speak to the uniqueness of each piece. And nothing ages without time showing its mark in some way. A century of being used or held and admired, packed and moved, cleaned and displayed, will create the telltale signs of genuine age. I personally take packages to the nearest U. Post office at Ladysmith, Virginia. That is also where I conduct FREE in-person pick-up for any item. Please contact me if you have any questions.
