Atlas ou recueil de cartes géographiques - Les environs de Paris ou se trouve l'Isle de France - David Rumsey
An old map of Paris, France.
Pastoureau describes this large atlas as De Fer's folio atlas. It is described by De Fer in his catalog of 1716 as his highly detailed atlas showing all parts of the world, with all the maps available separately. The collation of the atlas seems to vary by copy - our copy has a title page but no table of contents. Our copy collates to parts of Pastoueau FER II C - FER II D, with our latest map dated 1748. The maps range in date from 1690 to 1748 with most of the maps in the 1700 to 1720 period. All maps are numbered in manuscript. Of special note in our copy is the two sheet map of the Mississippi River which is rare to find with both north and south sheets present.
