April News and our cartography list

Wednesday, Apr 13, 2016

We have posted online our April occasional list: a selection of cartographic material from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries. In addition to freestanding maps the list includes printed books that contain their charts as intended, as well as a separate section of historically significant atlases. The list concludes with some scarce books relating to the history of mapmaking, and a handful of recently published reference books.

As usual, this list is intended as a preview and more information on each item can be seen on our website at www.hordern.com with further extensive information, images and condition reports: simply click on the hyperlinked text description in this pdf (or search at hordern.com).

The list can be viewed or downloaded on-line here

We are also pleased to announce that Hordern House will be exhibiting at the forthcoming ANZAAB Pop-Up Rare Book Fair on 23rd April at the Gallery Room, State Library of NSW. The first in a series of worldwide Fairs and held in conjunction with ILAB, it celebrates UNESCO's World Book & Copyright Day, an annual day to raise awareness and funds to fight worldwide illiteracy. More information is available on our website here.
