Click image to zoom old map image in.

Title : Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties du Monde..
Map maker : SANSON,N..
Date : Paris, Mariette, 1666.
Size : 17.3 x 13.0 inches. / 44.0 x 33.0 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :The atlas "Cartes générales de toutes les parties du monde" (General maps of all parts of the world) can be considered as the first French world atlas, if we neglect the earlier publications of an composite atlas "Théâtre […] de tout le monde" by Tavernier and the pocket atlas "Trésor des cartes géographiques" by Jollain.

The atlas contains several important maps: "North America" is the first map to feature the Five Great Lakes in a recognizable way.
The map of China "China Kingdom" is partly based on the map that Matteo Ricci made based on an indigenous map and was brought to Rome by Jesuit Michele Ruggieri. Korea, which was commonly represented as an island in the 17th century, is represented here as a peninsula, which represents a breakthrough in cartography.

Composition :
Mappe-monde / L’Hydrographie / Harmonie ou Correspondance du Globe / Asie / L’Empire des Turqs / Natolia / Sourie ou Terre Saincte / Carte des Trois Arabies / Empire du Sophi des Perses / Carte Generale des Indes Orientales / L’Inde / Partie Méridionale de l’Inde / Royaume d’Annan (avec Canton et Macao) / La Chine Royaume / Tartarie / Royaume du Japon / Les Isles Philippines / Cyprus insula / Afrique / Fez et Maroc / Partie de la Barbarie / Partie de la Coste de Barbarie / et désert de Barca et l’Egypte / L’Afrique, ou Lybie / Haute Ethiopie / Basse Aethiopie / Les Isles Canaries (Du Val) / Les Isles Terceres (Du Val) / Amérique Septentrionale (Burden, State 3) / La Canada ou Nouvelle France / Le Nouveau Mexique et la Floride (Burden, State 1) / Mexicque ou nouvelle Espagne / Les Isles Antilles / Sainct Christophe / Guadeloupe / Martinique / Amérique Méridionale / Terre Ferme / Guiane et Caribane / Le Pérou / Le Chili / Le Brésil / Le Paraguayr / Les Deux Pôles / Monde ancien : 52 cartes.

L"Amérique Septentrionale" : It is the first map to delineate the five Great Lakes in a recognisable form.
"La Chine Royaume" : This important and attractive French map of China is based on an indigenous Chinese map copied by Jesuit Matteo Ricci, and brought back to Rome in 1590 by his fellow Jesuit, Michele Ruggieri. The map extends to include the northern tip of the Philippines and a curiously curved Korean peninsula. Korea was usually shown as an island in the 17th century, so Sanson's depiction is a cartographic improvement. The Great Wall forms the northern boundary and the map is filled with rivers, mountains and villages. A detailed explanation panel in bottom right is surmounted by Pheme, the personification of fame and renown.
Pastoureau, Sanson V C
Condition : In-folio of (2)pp. (title and table) and 96 maps colored in outline, contemporary brown calf binding, gilted raised spine.
