Reliure légèrement frottée, petits manques de papier aux coins, rarissimes rousseurs. Bon exemplaire complet du texte, mais sans l'Atlas de planches (de 2 ff.n.ch., 17 vues et 9 cartes). (Reu-CO2)‎

‎Vancouver George; Pacific Northwest Heddington Thomas‎

‎Proof plate 'Village of the Friendly Indians at the entrance of Bute's Canal' with the printed edition‎

‎1798. Very good condition. Scarce copper engraved proof plate for a very early image of Canada's British Columbia coast depicting First Nations people and their village as encountered by Captain George Vancouver. This is a proof for plate IV Volume I of George Vancouver's Voyage 'A Voyage of Discovery to the North Pacific Ocean and Round the World; in which the Coast of North-west America has been Carefully Examined and Accurately Surveyed .'. Vancouver's voyage was intended to ensure Britain's hold on territory on the Northwest coast of North America and to search for the Northwest Passage. Vancouver who began his career sailing under Capt. Cook explored the mouth of the Columbia River Vancouver Island and Puget Sound. There were no commissioned artists on the voyage; Thomas Heddington 1776-1860 was one of four gifted crewmen who made drawings of the new territory. A midshipman on the ship Chatham Heddington's view shows a tree covered hill with the village at the top with wooden fish drying structures on the slope and with First Nation people in canoe on the water. Bute's Canal is now known as Bute's Inlet about 125 miles from Vancouver on the southwest coast of British Columbia. Vancouver describes the scene depicted here: ". fires of the natives had been observed on entering this canal; which I distinguished by the name of 'Bute's Canal'. Here was found an Indian village situated on the face of a steep rock containing about one hundred and fifty of the natives some few of whom had visited our party on their way up the canal and now many came off in the most civil and friendly manner with a plentiful supply of fresh herrings and other fish which they bartered in a fair and honest way for nails". The drawings were later revised by William Alexander to illustrate Vancouver's Voyage. The original ink and wash sketch for this proof plate sold in Vancouver in 2012 for $55000 Heffel Fine Art Auction House May 17 2012. The proof plate printed on tissue paper laid on to India paper. Image size 13 1/2 x 10 1/2". Full paper size 17 1/4 x 12". Two faint diagonal creases upper left side. with the printed edition of the print titled 'Village of the Friendly Indians at the entrance of Bute's Canal'. "W. Alexander del: from a Sketch taken on the Spot by T. Heddington" and "J. Landseer sculp" printed below the image. London published May 1st 1798 by R. Edwards New Bond Street J. Edwards Pall Mall & G. Robinson Paternoster Row. 11 1/2 x 9 1/4". Both images in very good condition. <br/><br/> unknown‎

‎Industrial British Columbia 1945‎

‎152 pages. Large oblong book measuring 10" x 14.5". "Because war censorship forbade publicity there is a widespread lack of knowledge of the outstanding production job for the war effort done by British Columbia industry...

‎VANDERMAELEN Philippe (Bruxelles 1795 - Molenbeek-Saint-Jean 1869)‎

‎Ile de Diemen‎

‎Carta apparsa nella sesta parte, "Océanique", dell'Atlas universel de géographie physique, politique, statistique et minéralogique di Vandermaelen. L'atlante fu prodotto in un'unica edizione nel 1827; furono venduti solo 810 esemplari completi.  Questa grande opera, che comprende circa 378 mappe uniche e che fu compilata nell'arco di tre anni, fu il primo atlante litografico e il primo a rappresentare il mondo con la stessa proiezione e in una scala uniforme. Philippe Marie Guillaume Vandermaelen è stato un cartografo fiammingo attivo a Bruxelles nella prima parte del XIX secolo. A Vandermaelen si deve uno dei più notevoli sviluppi dell'impresa privata nella cartografia, ovvero il suo straordinario Atlas Universel de Geographie in sei volumi. Vandermaelen, nato a Bruxelles il 23 dicembre 1795, viene considerato come il più grande cartografo belga dopo Mercatore e Ortelius. Figlio di un medico che era diventato un ricco produttore di sapone, muovendosi in un ambiente commerciale e da autodidatta, divenne un commerciante di prodotti chimici e farmaceutici. Fanatico di geografia, la sua carriera subisce una svolta definitiva quando, nel 1825, inizia a pubblicare un rivoluzionario Atlas universel che lo consacra come cartografo. Primo atlante al mondo a rappresentare la Terra su una scala unica ed eccezionalmente grande, l'Atlas universel offriva la rappresentazione più ampia, completa e precisa mai realizzata. I suoi contemporanei lo capirono, come la Chiesa cattolica romana, che era in una fase di espansione. Negli anni Trenta del XIX secolo, Roma sosteneva che questo atlante era assolutamente il miglior atlante disponibile, prezioso strumento della sua politica missionaria nell'Oceano Pacifico e nelle isole meridionali. Bibliografia Marguerite Silvestre, Philippe Vandermaelen, Mercator de la jeune Belgique, 2016. Map appeared in the sixth part, 'Océanique,' of Vandermaelen's Atlas universel de géographie physique, politique, statistique et minéralogique. The atlas was produced in one edition in 1827; only 810 complete sets were sold.  This great work, featuring some 378 unique maps and compiled over three years, was the first lithograph atlas, and the first to render the world on the same projection and at a uniform scale. Philippe Marie Guillaume Vandermaelen (December 23, 1795 - May 29, 1869) was a Flemish cartographer active in Brussels during the first part of the 19th century. Vandermaelen is created with "one of the most remarkable developments of private enterprise in cartography," namely his remarkable six volume Atlas Universel de Geographie. No one could have foreseen that Philippe Vandermaelen, born in Brussels on 23 December 1795, would become the greatest Belgian cartographer since Mercator and Ortelius. Son of a doctor who had become a wealthy soap maker, moving in a business environment and self-taught, he became a dealer of chemical and pharmaceutical products. As a geography fanatic, there was a definitive shift in his career when, in 1825, he began to publish a revolutionary Atlas universel which established him as a cartographer. As the first atlas in the world to represent the Earth on a single and exceptionally large scale, the Atlas universel offered the widest, most complete and most precise representation ever achieved. His contemporaries understood this, such as the Roman Catholic Church, which was in a phase of expansion. In the 1830s, Rome claimed that this atlas was “the best atlas available” and was the instrument of its missionary policy in the Pacific Ocean and the southern islands.

Pp. 1155-1479 two folded plates one loosely inserted. � First publication of AT&T's first submarine telephone cable across the pacific. It went from Japan to Hawaii where it connected to two cables linking Hawaii with the mainland.
