From his famous Atlas Universel. This atlas was one of the most remarkable world atlases ever produced, anticipating the International Map of the World and being the first atlas to show the entire land mass of the world on a uniform scale.
Supported by the fortune of his parents and assisted by his brother, Jean-François, Vandermaelen built a spacious geographical Institute in 1829, in which he installed a map-drawing section, a library and a museum. He published one of the most remarkable world atlases ever made : a world atlas with about 400 maps on a uniform scale of 1:1,6 million.
This work, which appeared in 1827, was far ahead of its time but its appearance could only be justified by the unparalleled zeal of its author.
The lithography was carried out by Henri Ode, who applied a new technique, especially designed for the Atlas Universel.A number of maps have been lithographed by Philippe Vandermaelen himself.
It is important to note that while large-scale maps for parts of Europe were already widely available in 1827, the same could not be said for the rest of the world.
Condition : Very good condition, nice dark and even impression.
