Description: Map. Engraving with original outline coloring. Two sheets joined. Image measures 22 5/8 x 17 inches.

Comments: Nice early edition of Bonne's Eastern part of North America, with the name Canada prominently featured in the center of the Great Lakes. Two separate maps have been professionally joined and line up well to show the region in detail during the beginnings of the American Revolution. Some foxing near the scale but otherwise a good example. Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century. He served as Hydrographer to France, and during his term, he produced a numbered of detailed and useful maps, particularly of coastal regions. His work is often devoid of decorative cartouches and compasses roses and marks a turn in European mapmaking away from decoration toward technical mapping.

Dear Argosy. THANK YOU very very much. I ordered the book "A Case of Removal of the Lower Jaw, for Osteo-Sarcoma of Immense Size" by George C. Blackman. I was pleased beyond words just to think that I was getting an original copy of a book that my great great grandfather wrote. When it arrived it was an even bigger treasure for me, as his own handwriting was in the upp right corner of the cover, giving the book to a fellow colleague. Thanks again so very much for helping me bring my ancestry searching a little closer and more personal. - S.B. Pratt
