Fold-out has small tear to very edges. Unfortunately, aside from the expected library stamps at the front and on verso of fold-out, the book has some damage from damp. Several of the pages have obviously stuck together at some point, and been forcibly opened, leading to loss of text. Most of the tables are still in a good condition, but towards the back the condition is worse. Only in a fair condition. See photos. 140 pages. 220 x 140 mm (8¾ x 5½ inches).

    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.

    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.

    VISSCHER, Claes Jansz (after)
    De Beurs - Hendrick de Keyser

    Amsterdam: na, 1650. An attractive bird's eye view of the Hendrick de Keyser Beurs (stock exchange) of Amsterdam. Although clearly based upon the engraving by Claes Visscher, this print differs in quite a few details, and would seem to be a slightly later version. (Visscher's original engraving was 1612). Two sheets glued together, so obviously from a book. Now tipped onto hand made backing card with painted borders. The print is in very good, fractionally darkened state with a small crease to one corner. The board also has a few bumps. Engraved area 19cm x 29cm, Original sheet 27.5cm x 34.5cm, backing card is 37.5cm x 45cm.

The blue indicating the flooded areas is somewhat faded, but still visible.

    The February flood of 1825, also known in Germany as the Great Hallig Flood (Große Halligflut), was a devastating flood that occurred from 3 to 5 February 1825 on the North Sea coast, in which about 800 people were drowned.
    In the Netherlands, the February flood was the worst natural disaster of the 19th century. Most of the dead and the worst damage was in Groningen, Friesland and Overijssel. The reaction at national level was quite similar to that during the flood of 1953; yet the event was surprisingly quickly forgotten once the damage had been repaired and had no political or engineering consequences. It needed the disaster of 1953 in order for a delta law to be passed and to improve coastal protection significantly.

  • Kent by CARY, John
