    London: Jonathan Cape, 1966. First edition in dust wrapper. Wrapper is clean, with a touch of nicking and edgewear and with a 1cm closed tear to the head of the spine. Now in protective archival film. Hardback in clean and neat green cloth with just a touch of bumping. Book is in good clean condition throughout. What is interesting about this copy, is that there is a gift inscription to the verso of the half title, stating that the book was taken from the Iranian Embassy shortly after the SAS had ended the embassy siege in 1980. The annotation claims that it was taken from the embassy an hour after the siege, but apart from this seeming unlikely (with security concerns at the time) the date given is actually 3 weeks after the end of the siege. There is no evidence that this is true but a strange thing to make up and we offer it as an interesting oddity! 414 pages. 220 by 150mm (8¾ by 6 inches).

    . Première édition sous couverture anti-poussière. L'emballage est propre, avec une touche d'entaille et d'usure des bords et avec une déchirure fermée de 1 cm à la tête de la colonne vertébrale. Maintenant dans un film d'archives protecteur. Couverture cartonnée en toile verte propre et soignée avec juste une touche de bosse. Le livre est en bon état de propreté partout. Ce qui est intéressant à propos de cet exemplaire, c'est qu'il y a une inscription cadeau au verso du faux titre, indiquant que le livre a été pris à l'ambassade d'Iran peu de temps après que le SAS eut mis fin au siège de l'ambassade en 1980. L'annotation prétend qu'il a été prise de l'ambassade une heure après le siège, mais à part cela qui semble peu probable (avec des problèmes de sécurité à l'époque), la date indiquée est en fait 3 semaines après la fin du siège. Il n'y a aucune preuve que cela soit vrai mais une chose étrange à inventer et nous l'offrons comme une bizarrerie intéressante ! 414 pages. 220 par 150 mm

    Johnstone (d. 1838), an Edinburgh surveyor, was promised a grant of £1000 by the recently formed Board of Agriculture to provide a detailed and accurate account of the system of land drainage developed by Joseph Elkington (d. 1806), a farmer in Warwickshire and designer of land drainage systems. Elkington was known to be in poor health, and it was feared that knowledge of his innovations might perish with him. "About 1763 Elkington inherited a farm at Princethorpe, where some years later he discovered, at Long Harold Pits along a geological fault, the method of land drainage for which he is remembered. He discovered by accident, after losing more than 800 sheep to liver rot, how some strata were porous and pervious to water while others were not, and that he could locate the former with the auger used in exploring for marl and coal."-ODNB

    JOHNSTON, Alex. Keith
    Asia From Keith Johnston's General Atlas

    London: W & A.K. Johnston. A map of Asia, extracted from the General Atlas. This conforms best to the 1879 edition, except the lack of page title to the top edge, and the different page number. Engraved area is 13" x 17" (sheet is 141/2" x 181/2"). Lightly tipped onto mounting board, and now protected by archival protection. A lovely copy of this map from the height of colonial era.

    Condition: A clean and tidy copy of this map. No significant damage at all. Clean and tidy, with the lightest of darkening.

    Atlas Géographique - Dressé sous la Direction du Conseil Royal de l'Instruction publique. Pour l'usage des Colléges. 1ère partie Géographiqe ancienne.

    Paris: Imprimerie de Selves fils, 1834. A fascinating collection of papers. A geographic atlas, used as it should be, with a number of student manuscript documents bound in. Contents comprise: The atlas Géographique, complete with the 16 double page hand coloured maps (as called for). These are all in good, clean and bright condition. There are a few ink annotations to the blank reverse of the maps - but the maps themselves are lovely. These are all of the ancient world, and state that they were produced by Libraire Hachette in 1833 or 1834. In addition to these maps, bound into the front of the atlas (between the title and the first map) are several large folding manuscript charts.…

    Paris: Imprimerie de Selves fils, 1834. A fascinating collection of papers. A geographic atlas, used as it should be, with a number of student manuscript documents bound in. Contents comprise: The atlas Géographique, complete with the 16 double page hand coloured maps (as called for). These are all in good, clean and bright condition. There are a few ink annotations to the blank reverse of the maps - but the maps themselves are lovely. These are all of the ancient world, and state that they were produced by Libraire Hachette in 1833 or 1834. In addition to these maps, bound into the front of the atlas (between the title and the first map) are several large folding manuscript charts. Several of these have been signed Belize Romain - as this name is also doodled several times to the inside of the boards, we assume this is the student who made them. The manuscript charts are: (1) "Mesures de solidite" comparing ancient and modern measures. To the front facing leaf of this is a further manuscript text, with measurements and text; (2) "Tableau des mesures decimales" (3) "Mesures de superificie" (surface area). (4) "mesures de longueuer" (5) "mesures de contenouce." The front and rear inside boards show the evidence of a bored student, with doodles and scribbles. The outside boards are cheaply bound in stained paper, with a darkened paper label to the front board. The boards are scruffy and show signs of use. Overall a lovely students manuscript collection from the 1830's. [i], [V], 16 pp. 200 x 135 mm (7¾ x 5¼ inches).

    . Une collection fascinante de documents. Un atlas géographique, utilisé comme il se doit, avec un certain nombre de documents manuscrits d'étudiants reliés. Le contenu comprend : L'atlas géographique, complet avec les 16 cartes double page colorées à la main (comme demandé). Elles sont toutes en bon état, propres et brillantes. Il y a quelques annotations à l'encre au verso des cartes, mais les cartes elles-mêmes sont magnifiques. Elles représentent toutes le monde antique et indiquent qu'elles ont été produites par Libraire Hachette en 1833 ou 1834. En plus de ces cartes, plusieurs grandes cartes manuscrites dépliantes sont reliées au début de l'atlas (entre le titre et la première carte). Plusieurs d'entre elles sont signées Belize Romain - comme ce nom est également griffonné plusieurs fois à l'intérieur des planches, nous supposons qu'il s'agit de l'étudiant qui les a réalisées. Les tableaux manuscrits sont les suivants (1) "Mesures de solidité" comparant les mesures anciennes et modernes. Sur le premier feuillet de ce tableau figure un autre texte manuscrit, avec des mesures et du texte ; (2) "Tableau des mesures decimales" (3) "Mesures de superificie" (surface). (4) "mesures de longuer" (5) "mesures de contenouce". Les planches intérieures avant et arrière portent les traces d'un étudiant qui s'ennuyait, avec des gribouillis et des griffonnages. Les planches extérieures sont reliées de manière bon marché dans un papier taché, avec une étiquette en papier noirci sur la première planche. Les planches sont défraîchies et présentent des signes d'utilisation. Dans l'ensemble, il s'agit d'une belle collection de manuscrits d'étudiants des années 1830. [i], [V], 16 pp. 200 x 135 mm.
