MT: This is the famous title page for the Lafrery atlas. It appears all in caps, so I used the default chart in Appendix G for conversion of the letters (which meant changing all internal V to u). I'm treating the final phrase as info belonging in the 260 field, hence no mark of omission ("stampate in rame con studio et diligenza in Roma"). All the sources I've seen give Lafrery as the main entry, which is why I've made the 1st indicator "1". 4/19/14

[Composite atlas of Russia, with 2 explanatory tables and 1 engraving].

Bib

Status:

TF: I think it would be nice to several examples for this instruction. I wanted to find an example of a composite atlas with something more than maps in order to be "both distinctive and descriptive." Or would you put the information about the explanatory tables and engraving in the 500 (Publication, distribution, etc.) note?

MT: When you say 1 engraving, does this mean a non-cartographic engraving, such as a portrait or an illustration? Are the 2 tables on letterpress leaves? Probably I would put both of these in a note, since the title is supposed to be "highlighting the factor(s) that characterize the atlas as a whole". 3/25/13

TF: Yes, non-cartographic and letterpress leaves. Let's then put them in a note and make the title "Composite atlas of Russia." 3/26/13

MT: We already had a similar example to this one, "[Composite atlas of Europe]", so probably don't need this one. 3/26/13

MT: I'm open to other suggestions for supplied titles. Maybe we need one that doesn't show geographic coverage? 4/5/14

 

TF: Here are three examples of title pages for what I'm fairly certain are composite atlases. Comments for each follow. I haven't done anything to the bib records, so they may not necessarily look anything like we would catalog according to our rules.

 

Keulen, Johannes van.

title page

bib record

Koeman (1967 edition) gives the title of this atlas as Landt Atlas, although I couldn't find this title on the title page or anywhere else. He also states it is "most probably a collector's atlas" and then concludes stating "this 'atlas factice' belongs to the Yale University Library" [which is the copy I imaged]. Because there is not title on this "title page," perhaps it's a better example for the 260 field below?

MT: Used under 260 below.

 

Danckerts, Justus.

bib record

MT: Used under 245 and 260. 4/5/14

 

Covens & Mortier/Reiner & Ottens.

This is an interesting composite atlas: about half the maps are issued by Reinier & Ottens and half by Covens & Mortier. Perhaps because of this, there are two title pages: one for Reinier & Ottens and one for Covens & Mortier. And it has a manuscript index at the front.

Reinier & Ottens title page

Reinier & Ottens title page (imprint)

Covens & Mortier title page

Manuscript index

bib record

Koeman's (1967 edition) note concerning the Reinier & Ottens title matching this title page, "Copies of the Ottens atlas in one volume have been assembled to order. They do not contain a printed index, as i.a., in the atlases by F. de Wit or by Nic. Visscher. The number of maps they contain differs from one copy to another. Their contents consist of maps by various authors."

MT: I'm not quite sure what to do with this one. The bib has a supplied title. If we followed the instructions in 0C2.2., we would pick the letterpress t.p. over the engraved t.p. (and not supply a title at all). But we already have 3 examples of transcribed titles. 4/5/14

Status: Used 4/5/14

RB: In first example in the 260 section (p. 297), the "y"s with umlauts are, in fact, "ij"s -- "Bij" and "zijde". In Dutch publications of this era, the "ij" frequently *looks* like a y with umlaut, but it's not. 11/22/14

MT: Appendix G does mention this phenomenon but the examples in that appendix (G2, 2nd row) are so different from the example in our source document that it gives me pause. In our document, the two sides of the "y" are steeply angled rather than vertical as in G2: http://dcrmc.pbworks.com/w/file/74957366/Keulen%20%281718%29.jpg

Randy may very well be right here, but is it worth getting some other opinions? If it should be "ij" then this would be a great example to add to G2. I did some searches in the University of Amsterdam's catalog and found plenty of records for special collections materials with "by" rather than "bij" but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Here is more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IJ_%28digraph%29

11/30/14

TF; I have always transcribed them as ij, as Randy notes above. 12/1 /14

LSC: I think I have transscribe y with an umlaut as just that, but I would also say that was ignorance.  It is pretty clear that this is an older form of ij, and might be treated as we treat the ess-zett and as G2 treats it.  I don't think that the steep angles of the y as opposed to the curve in G2 are that significant, especially when we treat u and v as interchangeable. 12/1/2014

RB: Manon, thanks for providing the image of the example and the wikipedia info. Since we know that "y" is a digraph for "ij" I think we can invoke 0G1.1 and transcribe it in our example by giving the component letters separately. Getting more opinions and adding examples to G2 is a great idea. But, I would not recommend doing either of those now. Since the example isn't illustrating transcription of ligatures, we should just let it go for now. 12/1/14

MT: Agreed. Fixed. Todd, I think you had submitted this example; you might want to correct Yale's bib record.12/3/14

TF: Fixed (after I said above I always transcribe them as bij!). 12/3/14

NK: This all sounds good to me -- how you've handled it. 12/6/2014

TF: This may be a bit too long for an example, but I couldn't find a composite atlas with less than 24 maps, which this atlas has. We can always trim this example (perhaps using just 10 titles) down to make it more manageable. Please check my formatting. 4/3/13

Status: Used 5/18/13

MT: Separated the ae ligature in "Germanae". 5/18/13

MT: Revised to enclose each bracketed element in its own pair of brackets. 10/16/13 

MT: Following Todd's original suggestion, I've deleted the last 3 titles in the 505 so that there are now only 10 titles altogether. 11/11/13

MT: I am assuming this example came from Beinecke's Folio 469 (composite atlas of 13 maps)? I used these two images to verify the transcription for the first two maps:

http://brbl-zoom.library.yale.edu/viewer/1276041

http://brbl-zoom.library.yale.edu/viewer/1276042

I made numerous revisions as a result of this verification, including changing the wording, ISBD punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and marks of omission. These two now read:

Le royaume de France /par le Sr. Sanson ... A Paris : Chez H. Iaillot ... ; Se vend a Amsterdam : Chez les freres Huguetan et chez Pierre Mortier, [1692?] -- Les provinces des Pays-Bas catholiques / ... Guillaume Sanson ... A Paris : Chez H. Jaillot ... ; Se vend a Amsterdam : Chez les freres Huguetan et chez Pierre Mortier, 1691 --

However, it did leave me wondering about the transcription of the other maps. Seems like they could use some proofreading too. 11/11/13 

TF: I think I took this listing from a spreadsheet I kept of the maps in the atlas; let me review the records and make sure our example is accurate. 2/16/14
