LEMPRIERE, Clement. [Uncommon 18th century chart of Bermuda]
The Bermudas, or Summer's Islands. From a Survey by C. Lempriere. Regulated by Astronomical Observations. London: Laurie & Whittle, 1794. Coloured. 490 x 630mm. Split in lower centre fold.
A large chart of Bermuda, divided into tribes and with the towns and defences marked. Around the island are the sea routes from one part of the island to another, and notes, for example, 'Here is the chief place of Fishing for Whales'. Lempriere's survey of Bermuda, first published in 1738 by Lempriere & engraver W.H. Toms, was a considerable advance on existing maps, many of which were still based on Speed's map of a century earlier. The lifetime of this survey was also excessive: this plate was first published by Sayer in 1775, before being acquired by Laurie & Whittle in 1797; Richard Holmes Laurie published an edition in 1826!
