Cartography, Americana, Travel & Exploration
Over 400 lots of rare and significant maps, books, manuscripts, photographs, ephemera and more are on offer. The maps range from an 18th century chart of the Pacific Coast by the Spanish cartographer Miguel Costanso, to scarce real estate maps of a burgeoning California, rare bird?s-eye views, and more. There is much ephemera, many early booklets and pamphlets, rare original photographs of Alaska and elsewhere, and important books on the exploration and expansion of the American continent. Farther afield are scarce works on China, explorations in Central Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Ocean, antiquities of England and Europe, and views of far-off lands.
