An extremely rare and highly desirable French atlas!

 

Atlases from this era have always been popular and have maintained their appeal throughout the decades. This particular ‘Petit Atlas’ contains 30 hand-colored maps of various countries but also double-page illustrations of astronomical systems – Ptolemy, Tycho-Brahe, Copernicus, etc. – and views of the moon, eclipses, horizon lines, and an armillary sphere.

 

This first edition was published shortly after numerous astronomical observations in December of 1799 – accounts of comets, phases of the moon, celestial phenomena, and planetary movement from history are all described in the reports at the end. (see p. 23) This volume meets all first edition points, and includes a map dated 1811 (#5, “Mappe-Monde”).
