The Island of Diego Garcia is in the Chagos Group some 1,600 kilometres south of the tip of India. It is one of only five monitoring stations in the world for the Global Positioning System positioning system. It is still unclear after whom the island was named though the group first appears on the Pierre Descelier manuscript of 1550. The highly important Edward Wright printed world map of 1599 is the first to record Diego Garcia under its present name. From 1781 supplement to 'Neptune Oriental'.

A highly important chart depicting the FIRST RECOGNISABLE CARTOGRAPHIC REPRESENTATION OF HONG KONG after the work of Alexander Dalrymple’s in 1771. We could find no record of the original Dalrymple chart having been on the market in recent memory. This therefore is the earliest obtainable printed map to depict Hong Kong. It is based upon the surveys and soundings made from the navigational surveys in 1754, 1759, and 1760 by Dalrymple (1737-1808) the highly talented Scottish hydrographer who worked for the East India Company from 1752 and became its first Hydrographer in 1779. In 1795 he was promoted to Hydrographer to the Royal Navy. Dalrymple is renowned for the work he put in to correlating old charts with new discoveries in the East.At this point in time the only Chinese port open to European trade was Canton, the approaches to which are depicted here. The Portuguese colony of Macao, founded in 1557, is seen in the west. The nearby anchorage at ‘Typti’ was a popular waypoint for vessels. At the top of the map is the ‘Gueule du Tigre’, Boca Tigris or tiger’s mouth, the entrance to the Canton River. The now famous port and city of Hong Kong did not exist at this point not being founded until 1841. It is depicted here as ‘Fanchin Chow’ (Victoria Island) with both Stanley and D’Agular peninsulas shown in outline. Both Lantao and Lamma Islands are identified.This chart was published by Dalrymple’s friend Jean-Baptiste D’Apres de Mannevillette in the ‘Neptune Orientale’. The material collected for it was approved by the French Compagnie des Indes. D’Apres de Mannevillette was one of the first Hydrographers of France and an accomplished navigator. Born in Le Havre to a captain in the French West India Company he made a voyage to the Caribbean in 1726.

This is the first map of the county of Durham to be produced at a scale of one inch to the mile and the only one issued in the eighteenth century. It was surveyed by Lieutenant Andrew Armstrong and his son Mostyn John Armstrong; both were cartographers although only the son published any atlases. At the time Andrew Armstrong described himself as "Lieut. on half pay from the 32nd Regt." Their focus was on Scottish related material with the notable exception of the large scale county surveys of the neighbouring county of Northumberland which would be published the following year and two further of Lincolnshire in 1779 and Rutland in 1780. It was engraved and published by Thomas Jefferys. There are three states all published in rapid succession in the same year this being the third state with the imprint of both Robert Sayer and Thomas Jefferys. An Explanation upper right helps to identify the Market Towns, Parishes, Churches, Seats, Farms or Cottages, Parks, Turnpike Roads, 'Inclosed' partial and open roads and Roman points of interest. Also indicated are Coal Pits and Lead Mines along with natural features such as Hills, Woods and Parks etc. A fine plan of the town of Durham appears lower left accompanied by a compass rose and encapsulated by an ornate border. A nearby note records the fact that the latitude figures used were taken by Professor Hornsby in 1765. The longitude were deduced from the solar eclipse of 1766 and compared with those made at London, Sherborn and Oxford. The map is dedicated to Henry Earl of Darlington, the Lord Lieutenant of the county. The title appears in an ornate cartouche upper right with a mining scene. To its right is a model of the Bases and Triangles used to triangulate the county. All issues are rare, particularly this one. Provenance: private English collection. Harley, Brian ‘The Re-Mapping of England, 1750-1800’ in Imago Mundi 19 pp. 56 & 63; Rodger (1972) 101; Worms & Baynton-Williams (2011).
