Description:

Scarce pair of educational maps of the British Isles from, A complete course of geography, by means of instructive games, invented by the Abbe Gaultier, by Jehoshaphat Aspin. A Complete Course of Geography, by Means of Instructive Games invented by the Abbé Gaultier included ‘numerous emendations and additions, and an entire new set of maps, including the recent discoveries in the Arctic Regions’. Abbé Gaultier, an educationalist originally from Piedmont, had settled in France in 1780 and later fled the revolution to London. He died in 1818 but his Geography continued to be updated. In 1815 it was ‘collated with the author’s last Paris edition by Jehoshaphat Aspin’, a cartographer.  It also presents coloured maps with all details given and another set of maps with only the outlines. Juliana Bayfield,  ‘Games of Virtue and Learning’, The La Trobe Journal, 1997
