ADAMS, Sebastian C.

Adams' Illustrated Panorama of History

A. H. Walker, Washington, 1871
Large folio (710 x 340 mm.), contemporary half calf with cloth boards, blind ornate panel to upper board containing gilt embossed title. With 675 x 4860 mm. folding chart in 21 sections in full original colour, all backed on linen and folding in to marbled endpapers. Worn, particularly at the folds.
Although Adam’s published his work in Washington it appears this example was sold by the publisher A. H. Walker in London and Paris. Tooley’s Dictionary records a purely biblical chart of 1883. An unusual chart of history illustrated with numerous charts and tables. According to the British Library the first edition was printed in 1871. This example bears the latest date of 1881 in the table. The third edition is noted in 1878. Provenance: Eurobooks 1997 £100; private collection of Rodney Shirley. British Library Maps 33.e.32.
