London: Sotheby's, 1988. Paperback. 193P., plus how-to order information, plus printed price list (folded for mailing), plus stapled xerox leaves reproducing Philip Robinson's printed article on certain Chinese/Jesuit maps. The usual Big Auction Cat with a great number of color plates and b&w facsimiles (two are folded, global views that open up beautifully). Catalog is paperbound, 10.7x8.2 inches, cover laminate is peeling, half-inch cut to head near the spine (affects cover and first leaf), find a stroke of ballpoint pen ink to half-title (underlines Robinson's name), the doublespreads are very slightly crimped. Good (good-only) copy of a useful item.
Collector Robinson's article appeared in The Book Collector for Summer 1976, it runs forty pages or so (two per xerox leaf); it entirely concerns the aforementioned maps.
