Lot 414

Composite atlas 18th century. Atlas composed of 93 maps from 1702 to 1760.
In-folio, brown grief, back with nerves very damaged but holding the whole.
These colored maps are in double page or are triple or quadruple. They concern Asia, Africa and America and are followed by the countries of Europe; the last 17 maps are Latin maps intended for the intelligence of ancient history.
The maps are mostly by Guillaume Delisle, sometimes augmented by his son-in-law Philippe Buache. The other cards are by Buache, Sanson, de Beaurain, Jaillot and Anville.
Handwritten table at the beginning of the volume.
Marginal tear, without missing, on the first "world map" card, hole or gallery of worms in central fold on 6 plates, a cut in the fold of plates 40 and 52, old angular clear moulding more or less extended on 36 plates.
Good set except these few defects.
