Chart of the West Indies and Spanish Dominions in North America

by Arader Galleries

August 5, 2015, 5:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $18,000 - $22,000

Description: Aaron Arrowsmith (1750 - 1823). Engraved wall map with original hand color, backed on linen. London: A. Arrowsmith, 1803. In four sections: each app. 25” x 38 ½” (total dimensions: 4’2” x 5’5”). "This seminal chart of Florida, the West Indies, and the Spanish dominions in America is the most celebrated map by Arrowsmith, and today the most rare. An acclaimed British cartographer, Aaron Arrowsmith drafted accurate, detailed charts that earned him the titles of Hydrographer to the King of England and Geographer to the Prince of Wales, extremely important distinctions during an era when Britain ruled the seas. One of the first great British cartographers of North America, Arrowsmith introduced a new standard of excellence in mapmaking in the late 18th century and almost single-handedly made London the center for the cartographic trade. Arrowsmith’s phenomenally rare, seminal chart of Florida, the West Indies, and the Spanish dominions in America was perhaps his most celebrated map, and today the most rare. Issued in the same year as the Louisiana Purchase, Arrowsmith’s map was invaluable for navigators and Europeans who held commercial interest in the Gulf of Mexico. Perhaps its most significant quality was its unequaled accuracy. No map up until this time held such precise and flawless detail, and certainly not on such a large scale. The map also held great esthetic appeal with its vivid outline color and crisply engraved lines. Arrowsmith built his great success on this ability to attract both commercial and general viewers through his combination of visual and scientific appeal. Advances in engraving techniques in early 19th-century England resulted in the ability to include a tremendous amount of written information on the map, and the vast scale allowed for minute detail; names on the coast of the Gulf were given in Spanish, sometimes with explanations in English. In Texas, Arrowsmith showed the Nueces River, the Rio del Norte, and inland, San Antonio. Galveston Bay is also delineated, with numbers indicating depths, and the detail is similarly meticulous throughout. Notations were included for place names, detailed depth soundings and locations of any navigational hazards, even including rocks above the water line, and dunes and spits along the coastline. Also included are notes about tides, current speeds, and magnetic variances. Arrowsmith included a great deal of practical information, such as location of fresh water and spots where vegetables could be found growing. His unique historical notes were of anecdotal interest to navigators, pointing out spots where ships had been grounded, and, for example, where Columbus had landed. The most influential and respected map publisher of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Arrowsmith issued maps that were the result of careful synthesis rather than systematic, scientific inquiry. His role in cartographic production was to gather the best available information from a wide variety of sources, weigh the relative merits of conflicting data, and compile the most accurate depiction possible of an area. Arrowsmith accomplished this synthesis better than any other commercial mapmaker of his day and, as a result, his maps were the most sought after and highly prized on three continents. This is only more true now that their historical value has become inestimable and their numbers have dwindled due to the effects of time and general neglect. Perhaps his most rare map, this chart of Florida and the West Indies is also one of his most noted, and represents a cornerstone item for any collection relating to these areas. "

Plano del puerto de la Ysla de Roatán cituado en la parte del S. y E. de ella.

by Arader Galleries

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $1,800

Description: [HONDURAS]. [Cadiz: Escuela de Navegación, ca 1793].Single sheet (15 x 21 inches; 13 2/8 x 19 inches to the neat line). A FINE MANUSCRIPT MAP OF THE ISLAND OF ROATAN IN THE CARIBBEAN: "Plano del puerto de la Ysla de Roatán cituado en la parte del S. y E. de ella, el centro de esta ysla se halla en lattd. N. 16 gs. y 24 ms. y en longd. 289 gs. 6 ms., meridiano de Thenerife, siendo su extension de 14 leguas, havitada por los Basallos de S.M.B. y fue vendiada por los Armas de S.M.C. al mando del Mariscal de Campo y Capitan General de la Provincia de Goatemala Dn. Mathias de Galvez en 17 de marzo de 1782," pen and black and red ink with watercolour wash, the title and explanation inset upper left. "An early manuscript map of the principal harbor of Roatán Island, one of the Isles de la Bahia, off the Caribbean Coast of Honduras, which the note indicates was inhabited by British subjects, until it was seized by Spanish arms on March 17, 1782. The detailed depiction of the coastline, includes coastal features, soundings, navigational hazards, anchorages, fortifications, houses, and a settlement; the remains of a castle on a small island are shown abandoned by the English, comprising houses which served as a gunpowder store and a limehouse. A navigational guide to the heavily fortified town and harbour of Port Royal. The main entrance to the port is marked 'G' between two rocky reefs, where the depth of water and sand is sufficient for any type of vessel to pass through safely, other entrance channels are marked, together with sandbanks, beaches and rocks to be avoided. The Spanish had evacuated the Bay Islands in 1650, leaving the way open for pirates and Port Royal became their base until the middle of the 18th century, from where they launched assaults on ships and mainland settlements. The port was also home to British troops, who built two forts, in the years following the war between Spain and England in 1739. The island was handed back to the Spanish in 1748 as part of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, the last settlers deserting the island in 1751. In 1507 Spain's King Ferdinand established the office of the Piloto Mayor in the Casa de Contratación in Seville to collect and compile the latest geographical and cartographical information from all voyages of discovery since Columbus' 1492 voyage to America. At the time Spain was at the forefront of accumulating knowledge of the emerging world, and ""no evidence of this careful description of portions of the world is more compelling than that of ...the extensive mapping of Spanish areas of influence by the Real Escuela de Navegación in the eighteenth century... The maps produced under the auspices of the Real Escuela de Navegación, Cadiz, Spain were intended to provide Spanish pilots and navigators with the latest information available about navigational hazards, characteristics of the water bottom, and distinguishing features of coastal sites and relief. As such, these maps had to be as accurate as possible...it is probable that the Real Escuela de Navegación was established in the mid-eighteenth century to ensure the accuracy and consistency of maps produced for naval and commercial shipping and to house the growing record of maps and charts related to Spain's vast empire. ""By and large, these maps reflect hydrographic and navigational concerns as they depict coastlines, coastal features, soundings, navigational hazards such as shoals and sandbanks, and the characteristics of the water bottom. Maps of this group were intended to help mariners and explorers to identify harbors, headlands, coastlines, and particular navigational hazards associated with those places. Although coastal towns, settlements, and relief are usually depicted, this group of maps tends to include little or no information about other interior features, such as Native American nations and settlements or the origins of interior streams. It is evident that the maps were intended, as were the portolan charts that preceded them, to provide navigational information in order to assist military and commercial shipping to reach safely intended destinations. With some exceptions, most of these maps are clear and crisp and have a spareness that lends an abstract quality to them. Some also have elaborate cartouches and wind roses that add to their elegance. Among the reasons for expanded Spanish mapping in the eighteenth century were perceived military threats, increased marine trade and commerce, scientific expeditions, and the expansion in the number of ports in Spain and in its empire that was open exclusively to Spanish trade. Previous to the mid-eighteenth century, all shipping to and from Spain was controlled as a matter of state policy. Ships were allowed to sail from only a handful of designated Iberian ports, specifically, Cadiz, Seville, and La Coruña, and were permitted to enter an equally limited number of ports in the Americas and in Asia, specifically, Havana, Vera Cruz, Cartagena, Portobelo, Acapulco, and Manila"" (John R. Hébert & Anthony P. Mullan for the Library of Congress online). "

FINE MANUSCRIPT MAP OF THE CAP-HAITIAN REGION OF THE ISLAND OF HISPANIOLA IN THE CARIBBEAN: "El Guarico alias el cavo Frances; es una delas Colonias y Puerto que posehen los Franceses en la parte Occidental de la Isla Española, una delas Caribes u de barlovento enla América, situada en 19 gs. 44 ms. de lattd. septentrional y en 303 gs. 57 ms. de longitud de Tenerife: enla banda del Norte dela isla, 17 legs. al o 1/4 SO de Monte Chriti y 25 legs. al este del Cavo de San Nicolas", pen and ink with grey colour wash, the title and scale within a frame along the bottom edge, and decorated with a compass rose, signed by Vera at the end of the note and drawn under the supervision of Don Pedro Rivelles, Master Draftsman, at the School of Navigation in Cadiz. An early manuscript map of the French possessions on the north coast of Hispanola - Cap-Haïtien region - including a detailed coastline, coastal features, soundings, anchorages, navigational hazards, and pictorial representation of vegetation, buildings, and relief, oriented to west at the top. El Guaricao served as the capital of the French Colony of Saint-Domingue from the city's formal foundation in 1711 until 1770 when the capital was moved to Port-au-Prince. After the Haitian Revolution, it became the capital of the Kingdom of Northern Haiti under King Henri Christophe until 1820.
