Rare pocket atlas of the world by Pierre Duval with the maps in original outlines colours (except for the China map) and the coats-of-arms and titles-pages beautifully embellished with gold and silver. First published in 1661, this miniature atlas includes 83 maps (1 hours table) of the world and 38 (of 39) coats-of-arms of the main countries. The engraved title-page bears the address of Duval and Nicolas Langlois. The first end paper bears the signature of « Delahaye aîné 1810 », who could be Jean-Baptiste-Henri Delahaye (17..-18..?), son of Jean-Baptiste Delahaye and the oldest brother of Guillaume-Nicolas Delahaye.

Pierre Duval was Nicolas Sanson's nephew and pupil. He published a wide range of atlases and individual maps including this fine miniature world geography with many of the maps based on Sanson.

Provenance : Delahaye aîné, with signature in manuscript, dated 1810 on the first end paper. - Ex-libris : G. Cottreau.
