Published in the 'Atlas Noveau ...', this atlas was a masterpiece in the French cartography in the 17th century.

The maps are rich in detail, with many cities and place names, rivers, mountains, castles, etc. The map is ornated with a very large fine allegoric title cartouche with coat of arms in the upper right corner, as well a decorative cartouche with a milage scale in the lower left corner.
