Atlas D'Etude, Pour Instruction de la Jeunesse, by C.F. Delamarche.
Published 1812. Paris by C.F. Delamarche.
Complete: contains seventeen double page "modern world" maps, two fine double page celestial diagrams, nine ancient world historical maps, four d.p. Geographical Tables (Europe, Asia, Africa & Americas).
Total of 32 double page engraved plates. Original outline hand color throughout, many maps with fine large decorative title cartouches. All maps remain clean and attractive, any age flaws very minor and easy to overlook or forgive.
Large oversized folio, period 1/4 leather binding, gilt title, paper covered boards.
Scarce and wonderful large-scale atlas from the early 19th century with numerous maps being 18th century engravings, found here in later states.
The title suggests it was aimed at students, but apparently only as to the limited number of maps because the maps themselves indicate it is essentially a normal atlas, just with the inclusion of further tables and historical maps of the ancient world.
Beautiful atlas and quite scarce/ rare.
Book measures: 22" H X 16" W.
