Burr Map of the State of Texas
Texas. David Burr (1803-1875). Engraved Map with original hand color in full. New York: J. H. Colton & Co., 1834. Second Edition. 17 3/4 x 21 1/4 inches visible, 30 x 33 1/2 inches framed\nThis is the second edition of this scarce and important map of Texas. The first edition was issued in 1833 and a third edition in 1835. Streeter also lists an 1845 edition with the title changed to "The State of Texas." Streeter refers to this map as "the first large scale map of Texas... to show all of Texas to the Arkansas River" and states that "The Burr map, like the Austin Map, is one of the landmarks of Texas cartography..." The detail on the land grants is the best for its time. The 1833 issue shows a smaller Texas extending west to the 103rd meridian, whereas the 1834 and 1835 issues show a much expanded Texas extending west to about the 106th meridian and north to the Arkansas River. There is an inset map of Galveston Bay that Streeter refers to as "1st detailed printed chart of Galveston Bay?" Above the inset map is a table of Distances. Mid-Hudson Auction Galleries
Two Renaissance Reprintings of Solinus and Mela
in. C.IVLII Solini [Polyhistora] Enarrationes. - MELA, Pomponius - Joachim Vadianus. Libri De Situ Orbis Tres,...SOLINUS, Caius Julius (second half 3rd-century AD) - CAMERS, Giovanni Ioannis (1468-1546). Vienna: Johannes Singrenius for Lucas Alantse, 1520. Two works in one volume. Folio (11 6/8 x 8 2/8 inches). Fine folding cordiform woodcut world map (expert restoration at folds and some wormholes filled), woodcut title-page borders, historiated initials, printer's mark, both works include the final blank leaf (some pale waterstains). Contemporary blind panelled pigskin backed oak bevelled boards, brass clasps and catches (some minor worming). Provenance: with the armorial bookplate of Coelestin Steiglehner (1738-1819), Prince Abbot of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Emmeram at Regensburg, on the front pastedown; duplicate ink library stamps of the Hungarian National Museum Library on title-pages of both works, colophon page of the second, and verso of map. THE FIRST AVAILABLE PRINTED MAP TO BEAR THE NAME AMERICA Containing the celebrated and EARLIEST OBTAINABLE MAP TO NAME "AMERICA". The world map prepared by Peter Apian is preceded in naming "America" only by and modeled on the large 1507 wall map by Waldseemülle, of which only one example remains. The "Polyhistora" of Solinus was first printed in Venice in 1473, but this is the first edition with American interest. North and South America are represented as narrow strips of land separated by a wide channel. The northern continent is called merely "Terra incognita," but the southern has the inscription: "Anno d 1497 haec terra cum adiacetib, insulis inuenta est per Columbum Ianuensem ex mandato regis Castellae America puincia." This volume contains two works and both are rare works of signal importance, with the present examples in fine condition. The first is Joannes Camers's edition of the Polyhistor, an ancient treatise on natural history by Caius Julius Solinus (flourished ca. 250 AD). After Ptolemy, Solinus was the classical authority whose writings most strongly informed Renaissance geographical thought. The second book is an example of a key work published by the same Viennese press: Joachim Vadianus's edition with commentary of the first-century AD treatise by Roman geographer Poponius Mela. This 1518 edition also contains Vadianus's letter to his colleague, the Swiss humanist Rudolf Agricola, in which he outlines the geographical problems posed by the recent discovery of the New World and upholds Waldseemüller's decision to name the continent in honor of Vespucci. This treatise, therefore, was also highly influential in directing popular opinion and in bestowing upon the New World the name that it bears to this day.
