1. DIE GANTZE WELT IN EIN KLEBERBLAT, WELCHES IST DER STADT HANNOVER MEINES LIEBEN VATERLANDES WAPEN. Heinrich Bunting. Woodblock, c. 1581. The world displayed as a clover leaf. A fascinating and early map. The map presents a Holy Land-centric look at the earth, based upon the Scriptures, with Jerusalem at the center of the World, based upon the T-O world map model which was prevalent in medieval maps. Europe, Africa and Asia are within the 3 clover leaves, while England, Scandinavia and America lie outside the primary circles. Bunting was a theological commentator from Hanover. He first published his Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura in 1581. The work is famous among collectors as one of the great compilations of thematic maps, including Europe as a Queen and Asia as Pegasus. The ocean includes monsters, mermaids and a large sailing vessel. The work was reprinted at least 10 times in several languages over the next 70 years. German text on verso. Image size 10 x 14 1/4" (254 x 362 mm) plus title, text and margins. Good condition save for some paper repairs along lower centerfold. One tear in lower right portion of image. Professionally repaired. Attractive modern hand-coloring. Shirley, R. Mapping of the World 142. #6768.2 $6,950.

3 Autumn has arrived, and with it comes the anticipation and memory of hunting for many of our collectors. So we honor the tradition with a number of sporting prints in this issue. Still infused with the spirit of performing arts enlivening our gallery walls this summer, we also offer a few works from Per-Form. On exhibit currently is Alessandro Mastro-Valerio: A Retrospective. From his earliest drypoints to his later experimentation with mezzotints and aquatints, Alessandro MastroValerio (1887-1953) explored the female form through much of his 22 years of printmaking. Stumbling upon a display of mezzotint engravings at the Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago, 1933, he was intrigued by the printing method. Mastering the medium quickly, he published his first mezzotint in 1934, and one of his earliest mezzotints, “Morning,” was chosen for Fine Prints of the Year in 1935. Rich in tonality, Mastro-Valerio’s prints glow and breathe, filled with quiet emotion – one that resonates deeply with viewers. Two brief departures from the female form occurred in the years 1931–1933, when he produced mostly landscapes, and in the last several years of his printmaking career, 1950–1952, when his prints were pure abstractions, created from continuous, or single bite aquatints. “Motif in Seascape,” the 1949 Canon Prize winner, and several original plates are in the show, which runs through November 9th. As a participant in FAD Georgetown 2013, an event promoting Georgetown as a cultural district and prominent resource for Fashion, Art & Design, The Old Print Gallery is presenting Fresh Cuts: Through the Matrix. On Saturday, October 12th, we will host a demonstration, film screening and talk with acclaimed DC printmaker and documentary film director, Susan Goldman. Goldman’s film, Midwest Matrix TM will be screened for the first time in DC from 2-4 pm and at 4 pm Goldman will do an informal Q&A about her documentary. Visit our website:

8 14. MAP OF THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD AND CONNECTIONS JUNE 1875. F. T. Newbery. No publisher's name given but likely the Southern Pacific Railroad Company. Chromolithograph, 1875. Rare promotional map for the Southern Pacific Railroad. This map was published more than a year before the line was completed and is the earliest known map focused on the general lines of the Southern Pacific Railroad. The line between Los Angeles and San Francisco was not completed until September 5, 1876. The map is a great rarity. OCLC lists a single copy in the collection of UC Santa Barbara. The Huntington holds an 1877 broadside published in Omaha which includes this map as in inset. In 1865, a group of businessmen in San Francisco, led by Timothy Phelps, founded the Southern Pacific Railroad to build a rail connection between San Francisco and San Diego. In September 1868, Charles Crocker, Leland Stanford, Mark Hopkins and Collis Huntington purchased the SPRR and merged it with the CPRR. In November 8, 1874, the SPRR tracks had reached Bakersfield and work was commenced on the Tehachapi Loop. By September 5, 1876, the first train from San Francisco arrived in Los Angeles after traveling over the newly completed Tehachapi Loop. It would be another year before the line reached Yuma, Arizona, as noted on the map. The credit on the map is to F.T. Newbery, who prepared several other maps for the Union Pacific in the 1880s. Other items published by Newbery were credited by OCLC as having been published in Omaha and San Francisco. Image size 14 x 12 1/4". Good condition save for some rodent damage in upper right margin. #76345.5 $2,200.
