The trade card for James Pace, map and printseller at Crooked Lane, London. Pace is not listed in the extensive Tooley’s ‘Dictionary of Mapmakers’. Indeed the only reference we were able to find of him was for the publication of Isaac Harman’s ‘A familiar epistle to a free doctor, Remarkable for his singular Ingenuity in the Construction of new-invented Rules for important Discoveries; his Commentary on the Letter from the Mansions above; as also for his being a considerable Dealer in Envy, Malignity, Calumny, Detraction, &c. &c. by a lover of truth’, listed on the ESTC. The imprint reads ‘London: printed for James Pace, Map and Print-Seller, in Great Eastcheap, near the Monument’, [1759]. An extremely ornate card for a VIRTUALLY UNKNOWN MAPSELLER. ESTC T190267.
