 Belgium 

PRICE, Charles & Senex, John. [Uncommon two-sheet antique map of Belgium]
A New and Correct Map of the Ten Spanish Provinces According to the new observations communicated to the Royal Society at London and to the Royal Academy at Paris. London: Charles Price, John Senex & John Maxwell, c.1711. Original outline colour. Two sheets conjoined, total 660 x 960mm. Some restoration, as usual with these large maps.
An early example of this large antique map of Belgium, drawn by Price and engraved by Senex. Their partnership did not last later than 1711, after which Senex issued many of their maps in his 'English Atlas' from 1714. The title is within an illustration of siege warfare, with both wall design and weapons. At the time of publication the War of the Spanish Succession was at its height; at the end the Spanish Provinces had become Austrian. Around the coastline of Picardy is a line marking the mistaken coastline according to Sanson, with a note "N.B. That all Maps Printed for H.Jaillot and P. Mortier and Brought to England for Corret Maps are only Copies from Sanson with all his Errors and several by them Added not to be found in Sanson". The maps of the Jaillot/Mortier "Atlas Nouveau" were the only ones rivalling this series in size, so this is a very obvious attempt to discredit them.

 Spain & Portugal 

PRICE, Charles & Senex, John. [Uncommon two-sheet map of Iberia]
A Correct Map of Spain & Portugal According to the newest observations and discoveries communicated to the Royal Society at London and the Royal Academy at Paris. London: Charles Price & John Senex, c.1708. Original outline colour. Two sheets conjoined, total 705 x 965mm. Some restoration, as is common on these large maps.
An early example of this large map of Iberia, drawn by Price and engraved by Senex. Their partnership did not last after 1711, after which Senex issued many of their maps in his 'English Atlas' from 1714.
[Ref: 11777]    £500.00 ($650 • €575 rates)


 France 

PRICE, Charles & Senex, John. [Uncommon two-sheet map of France]
France Corrected from the Observations communicated to the Royal Academy of Sciences at Paris. London: Charles Price, John Senex & John Maxwell, c.1711. Original outline colour. Two sheets conjoined, total 660 x 960mm. Some restoration, as usual with these large maps.
An early example of this large map of France, drawn by Price and engraved by Senex. Their partnership did not last later than 1711, after which Senex issued many of their maps in his 'English Atlas' from 1714. The decorative title cartouche freatures a portrait of Louis XIV, surrounded by allegorical figures. Around the coastline of both France and the south of England are lines marking the "sea coast according to Mess.rs Sanson & the Dutch Maps": this is an unusual example of one cartographer highlighting the mistakes of others.
[Ref: 11780]    £400.00 ($520 • €460 rates)


 Russia 

PRICE, Charles. [An uncommon two-sheet antique map of Russia]
A Correct Map of Moscovy humbly Dedicated to the Honourable S.r Thomas Powell of Broadway in Carmarthen Shire Baronet and Knight of the Shire for the Said County. London, G. Willdey and T. Brandreth, 1711[-3]. Two sheets conjoined, total 980 x 650mm. Repairs to folds as usual in these large maps, toning from old glue on join.
A two-sheet antique map of Russia, originally prepared by Price for his unsuccessful partnership with John Senex and John Maxwell (1708-1711). After the partnership broke up, each member kept the plates that they had engraved, with Senex taking the most and re-issuing them in his 'English Atlas' from 1714. In 1713 Willdey acquired the remainder of Price's stock and began to issue them in a further ill-fated partnership with Timothy Brandreth, as this example. By the end of the year Willdey was advertising the remaining stock of maps at a heavily discounted price. The plate has been re-engraved with the words 'Petersbourg a Town built by the Csar'. Peter the Great moved the capital from Moscow to St. Petersburg in 1712.
