 Condition Rating

A good example of the first edition, extra illustrated. The Atlante is a rare and important collection of lithographed charts, plans, and city views of the Atlantic coast of South America, focusing on northern Argentina and mainly Brazil.
The views are of singular beauty, and show exclusively Brazilian cities and landscapes, mostly Rio de Janeiro. Some of the maps fold to reach almost 1 meter, and are amongst the most accomplished and detailed charts of the region by that time.

A few pages separating, and two folding maps with a small tear. Except for a few pages with some light foxing the book is internally very clean and in good condition. The book was used to dry some plants and there are some remains of offsetting.

Rodriguez was a Sicilian naval officer who accompanied Empress Tereza Cristina to Brazil to meet her husband Pedro II of Brazil.

"Very rare” (Borba de Moraes). This is the atlas volume only, the work is usually found with text volumes, however Borba de Moraes refers to them as a different work and makes a different entry for this atlas, he also collates it as having 32 plates, instead of the 33 this album contains.
Very rare, only one copy has appeared at auction in the last 50 years, and one dealer listing, not known to Sabin. ¤

Reference: Borba de Moraes, 743. Not in Sabin (who only mentions one text volume, 72507..
