Title : Cartes des voyages [with 71 maps..
Map maker : BELLIN, N..
Date : Paris, 1746-1788.
Size : 10.1 x 8.1 inches. / 25.7 x 20.5 cm.

Description :

Superb atlas made for Prevost d'Exiles' Abrege de l'Histoire Generale des Voyages, consisting of 71 (mostly folding) maps by the French cartographer Nicolas Bellin. The majority of the maps are from 1746-1760, but a few are dating to after Captain Cooks travels.

Includes the important maps of the Americas (Louisiana, Virginia and Maryland, Carolinas, Hudson Bay, Nouvelle Angleterre, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Islands, Peru, Mexico, Brasil,...)

Further with maps of Africa, the Pacific, Asia (including maps of the Philippines, Japan, China, India, Russia,...), also the large map of the Southern Hemisphere, and the superb map of world showing Captain Cooks discoveries!

Many of the maps are the best obtainable maps of the time, showing discoveries, new geographical information, and excellent topographical detail.  Sold as is.

Condition : Full calf, worn and damaged at spine and the edges outside. Tight binding, but front board is almost detached. No title page. Missing 3 maps (2 of St. Laurent, 1 of Indonesia), plus one table.

Most maps in very attractive condition, without tears, worming or damage. Sometimes with toning and soft wear to folds, light soiling, or very occassionally single brown spots. Margins with some browning and wear. With crisp folds, only light (if any) misfolding! With excellent clear and dark impressions. Two maps with repaired tears along folds, and the map of Martinique with red chalk staining.

Overall in very good condition!
