Widely considered to be the requisite cartobibliography on the subject of British periodicals, Part I is devoted to "Major Monthlies Before 1800" and Part II covers "Annuals, Scientific Periodicals and Miscellaneous Magazines Mostly Before 1800." These books are a vital part of any reference library and provide a wealth of information for all cartography and history enthusiasts. With passages such as "While the continental powers battered themselves to pieces, English fleets calmly cruise the seven seas, plucking off France's colonies in America, Africa, and India like so many fat, juicy plums," Jolly's writings are always as entertaining as they are educating. 8vo. Both are hardbound in red cloth with gilt titles on spines.
