Supported by the fortune of his parents and assisted by his brother, Jean-Francois 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 ca.400 maps on a uniform scale of ca. 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 atlas was published in instalments during the period 1825-1827. The lithography was carried out by Henri Ode, who applied a new technique, especially designed for the Atlas Universel.

Due to its weight additional shipping costs apply for shipping to Australia.

Reference: Koeman, Vdm 1: Philips 749.
