Verschiedene Resen Des Auctoris : G. Edwards / J. M. Seligmann

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This extraordinary map combines the tracks of the author, George Edwards's travels between 1716 and 1730 visiting British, French, Dutch and Norwegian locations and images of insects and ornithological interest. Stag beetles, from Borneo, the bill of an Egyptian Ibis and a Jamaican Hummingbird are shown actual size. This is a fine example, with bright original colour of the scarce German edition, on a newly engraved plate, of Edwards' curious map. Shirley explains that Edwards' work "A Natural History Of Uncommon Birds" was translated into French and German editions and published on the Continent by Seligmann, but "these editions do not contain (as far as I have been able to discern) the British Isles map ...". Perhaps the map did not appear in all editions - it is one of the few examples we have come across. An unusual and most attractive curiosity.
