L'univers. Atlas classique et universel de GÈographie ancienne et moderne
Paris,: Armand-Aubree,, 1837.. Six volumes, small quarto, with a total of 38 engraved maps of various sizes, dissected and laid down onto 22 folding linen sheets (each about 480 x 680 mm); eight pages of descriptive text in folio format in vol. V; the backing sheets uniformly browned; contemporary French quarter morocco, spines gilt in compartments between raised bands, a handsome set. A remarkably attractive presentation of this Atlas. Its 38 engraved maps were designed to complement MontÈmont's huge, 46-volume, Histoire Universelle des Voyages. The maps have been laid down on linen for greater ease of use, and the whole work elegantly bound as six volumes.The first volume contains ancient and modern world maps, while the other five volumes are each devoted to a continent. The map of Australia and the Pacific is large and has a long list of island names based on Dumont d'Urville's tables.
