It is with great pleasure that we present to you our catalog for the Spring of 2022. As you will no doubt notice, we have taken this opportunity to expand beyond our traditional bounds of antiquarian cartography to present to you a wide variety of historical material spanning the 15th century to the 20th century. This broader approach is exemplified on the following pages by Paul Revere’s Bloody Massacre (Item 34) and a fantastic example of Lunar Orbiter 1’s Earthrise photograph (Item 50), the first image of our plant from the Moon. A kind of “How it started... How it’s going” for the United States. That said, the majority of the catalog consists of some of the finest maps and atlases we have ever had the pleasure of offering. Of particular note are two atlases in unparalleled original hand-color, the Koler-Ortelius of 1570 (Item 7), and the Visscher Atlas Minor (Item 26). We must also bring special attention to the Nolin’s Recueil de Cartes de Geografie (Item 28), this example having been made for Louis XIV and containing one of the most revolutionary world maps ever made, which is now supremely rare having been banned shortly after it was published. We hope you enjoy.
