Condition Rating

Charming manuscript atlas with 6 maps, pen and ink and water colour, showing France, Europe, Africa, Palestine, North America and South America.
The atlas is done by a young lady, Bernard, as part of a geographical exercise. The result is very fine -- these are some of the most delicate and well executed children's maps we have seen. They clearly showing her excellent skills in calligraphy and drawing. The atlas is dedicated to her parents.
These old maps made by children were hand drawn and colored, one-of-a-kind productions, and it is amazing that any have survived down to our time. That they have is due to luck and the efforts of families to preserve the history of their children. These maps have a special poignancy today in the way that they reflect the optimism of youth from another time.
