Rare French map of Bermuda, incorporating the surveys of Captain Clement Lempriere (Lempriere's name being spelled incorrectly in the title).
Clement Lempriere (1683-1746) published his map of Bermuda in 1738, the first significant cartographic advance since the work of Arent Roggeveen in 1675. Lempriere's map would form the foundation of most other maps of Bermuda up to the end of the 18th Century.
The original Lempriere chart was sold by S. Harding in London and is of the utmost rarity. The map exists in two known states, the first state and a second state which includes "Price 2 shillings without the imprint of Hardings and Toms". A link to the first state can be found here: jcb.lunaimaging.com/luna/servlet/detail/JCBMAPS~1~1~1425~100840002:To-his-Excellency-Alured-Popple-Esq
