YAGGY’S GEOGRAPHICAL ATLAS

Yaggy’s Geographical Study Comprising Physical Political Geological and Astronomical Geography. Composed by Levi Walter Yaggy. Chicago: Western Publishing House, 1887. Atlas folio, chromolithographed title with large vignette of the world, two chromolithographed plates (one double-page, one mounted as a front endpaper with three large overslips), one celestial chart mounted on card with five flaps opening to reveal opaque sections (two of these with moveable parts), seven double-page maps (two hemispheric world maps, and five maps of the continents), one hand-colored plaster-of-Paris relief map of the United States built into the rear endpaper, original cloth-covered wooden carrying case, with flaps and leather ties. First edition. An exceptionally rare children’s teaching aid and an important example of grand-scale color lithography in American printing history, including a rare hand-

painted relief map of the United States and one of the largest color plates ever produced. Constructed under the supervision of the American cartographer Henry Gannett, Yaggy’s extraordinary atlas provided students with a hands-on experiential geography lesson: levers move and flaps lift up to reveal sections of the continents, layers of the earth’s crust, parts of the solar system (rotation of the planets, phases of the moon, constellations, etc.); large-scale maps made especially “for class work” have dots for teachers to direct their pointers to specific cities and points of interest, and the impressive large relief map at the end.

(MAPS)

A group of 10 maps of Italy. Size of largest 20 x 27 1/2 inches. $200-400 24

(MAPS)

A group of 14 maps of the world, North America, Africa and Mexico. Size of largest 22 x 24 3/4 inches. $200-400

A few tears to the maps and title page; lacking one of the metal levers for the astronomical chart, a 1-inch portion of the relief map (not a relief portion, southern Texas) has come detached, and there is some wear to the case. However, all of the flaps remain intact along with the original leather straps of the carrying case, and the lithography is still in excellent condition with very bright coloring. $2,000-4,000

BEFORE THE SALE Prospective buyers are strongly advised to personally examine any property in which they are interested before the auction takes place.

All lots are sold “AS IS” and without recourse and neither Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. nor its consignor(s) makes any warranties or representations, express or implied with respect to such lots. Neither Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. nor its consignor(s) makes any express or implied warranty or representation of any kind or nature with respect to merchantability, fitness for purpose, correctness of the catalogue or other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, material, genuineness, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, exhibitions, literature or historical significance of any lot sold. The absence of any reference to the condition of a lot does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. No statement, whether written or oral, and whether made in the catalogue, or in supplements to the catalogue, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, the remarks of an auctioneer, or otherwise, shall be deemed to create any warranty, representation or assumption of liability.

Bidding as Principal When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyer’s premium, all applicable taxes and all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed upon in writing with Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. before the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc., and that Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. will only look to the principal for payment.

With respect to lots that are offered without reserve, unless there are already competing bids, the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, will generally open the bidding at half of the low estimate for the lot. In the absence of a bid at that level, the auctioneer may proceed backwards at his or her discretion until a bid is recognized, and then continue up from that amount. Auctioneer’s Discretion The auctioneer has the right at his or her absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he or she may decide, to withdraw any lot, and in the case of error or dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, our sale record is conclusive. Successful Bid The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser.
