Title: (England Europe) Itinera Varia Auctoris
Mapmaker: Edwards, George
Published: 1745

(England Europe) Itinera Varia Auctoris

This unusual map is by George Edwards, a gifted amateur scientist and ornithologist, who became librarian of the Royal College of Physicians, Fellow of the Royal Society and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. On a map of the British Isles and western Europe are marked the author's journeys over the years 1716 -30. At the top is a large broken -off beak of a bird; in the centre are two finely drawn stag beetles; and in a panel at lower right a bird is perched on a branch. Edwards explains that the large beak is that of an Egyptian ibis; the life size beetles are from Borneo (male above, female below); while the bird is the Least Hummingbird from Jamaica - its egg is shown natural size at one fourth of an inch across.

Condition is very good with a bit of a close right margin. Image size is approximately 10.5 x 8.5 (inches)
