More Details

A collection of 1600 maps disbound from copies of multiple editions of the Atlas National Illustre des 86 Departements et des Possessions de la France. The editions represented here were published between 1845 and 1869 in Paris by Amable Combette (all editions between 1845 and 1858) and Pelissier (all editions between 1859 and 1869). The magnum opus of French cartographer Victor Levasseur (1795-1862), the maps of the Atlas National Illustre are particularly well-known for their ornately engraved borders. The maps are in good condition with mild to moderate age toning and tearing to edges where they were disbound. The collection includes multiple copies of the maps of many Departements. Thirteen maps included in this collection are from French language sources other than the Atlas National Illustre.
