recent arrival
A scarce map of Europe based on the description by Roman historian Lucan in his "Pharsalia" or "De Bello Civili". From "Geographia classica: The geography of the ancients so far describ'd as it is contain'd in the Greek and Latin classicks, in twenty-nine maps of the Old World...," London, Printed for C. Browne, MDCCXVII [=1717]. Herman Moll was born in 1654 of German descent. He first came to London to work as an engraver for several publishers, and in the late 1670s set up his own business publishing atlases as well as maps of all parts of the world. His earliest known cartographic work is a series of small maps for the geography book of Sir Jonas Moore, published in 1683. Over the next fifty years he produced numerous works on classical, British and foreign geography, illustrated with maps of varying scales and detail yet in clear, distinctive style. Though his later work lacks the flamboyance of earlier productions, it is nevertheless still very pleasing to the eye.
