Punchinello-graphy of England by John M. Wauthier - 1808.


"In this beautifully engraved game, each English or Welsh county is represented by a grotesque portrait of a character from history, literature or folklore; a numbered list appears in the left hand margin. Counters with these characters’ names (which may have been printed, or may have been handwritten, but are not present here) were picked from a bag. The player then had to name the county and repeat the list of principal towns given in the rules. Failure gave other players the chance to complete the list and win the token. The rules suggest awarding ‘some present’ to the winner, to ‘awaken emulation’ in the breast of the other pupils. With the exception of Tom Thumb, who represents Rutland (England’s smallest county) there is no obvious connection between the characters and the locations: Cardinal Wolsey has no obvious connection with Radnor, the demonised radical MP John Wilkes none with Gloucestershire and I can think of nothing which links Joan of Arc with Yorkshire. Some historical figures would have figured more prominently in popular culture than now: ‘Obi, or 3 Finger’d Jack’, or Jack Mansong, led a slave revolt in 1770s Jamaica and featured in plays, novels and broadsides. King Lear is drawn from Shakespeare, Squire Weston and Parson Thwackum from Fielding and Sir Fretful Plagiary from Sherridan. Surprisingly, perhaps, none of these characters are described in the rules, and learning about them is not part of the game. Percy Muir cites the game as an example of the ‘more lively titles’ which began to appear in the early 19th century, promising ‘something more palatable to juvenile taste’. - Tim Bryars, 2020

Scenographia Systematis Copernicani - 1661

Print Description

The Scenographia Systematis Copernicani map (1661) illustrates the Copernican system of the Universe, as described by Copernicus in his De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres), published in 1543.

His heliocentric model, with the Sun at the center of the universe, demonstrated that the observed motions of celestial objects can be explained without putting Earth at rest in the center of the universe. His work spurred further scientific investigations, becoming a landmark in the history of science that is often referred to as the Copernican Revolution.

Andreas Cellarius was born in 1596 in Neuhausen and educated in Heidelberg. He emigrated to Holland in the early 17th Century and 1637 moved to Hoorn, where he became the rector of the Latin School. Cellarius' best known work is his Harmonia Macrocosmica, first issued in 1660 by Jan Jansson, as a supplement to Jansson's Atlas Novus. The work consists of a series of Celestial Charts begun by Cellarius in 1647 and intended as part of a two volume treatise on cosmography, which was never issued. - Rare Maps
