Precis de la Geographie Universelle de Description de Toutes Les Parties du Mondea, by Malte-Brun.
Published 1842, Paris by Bereau des Publications Illustrees.
71 of 72 original maps, including 14 double page maps. Missing map of Ancient Greece. However, three extra 19th century double page maps have been tipped in, meaning the atlas actually contains 74 maps in total.
Period 1/4 leather binding, gilt bands, title in gilt on contrasting black leather band. Lovely marbled covers and end papers.
Binding remains tight and sound. Interior contents remain mostly clean and free of spotting or foxing, a few minor misfolds or age flaws to a couple maps, nothing severe. Every single map is shown within the sort video.
Any age flaws are easy to overlook or forgive.
Book measures: 15 1/2" H X 12" W.
