Condition Rating

World atlas divided in 6 sections : World and spheres, Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Oceania, Illustrated with 63 maps in original colours, 22 double-page maps and 41 single-sheet maps.

This atlas is exceptional for its "spheroidal" maps of the globe, showing the various continents and poles, shaded to give the effect of a sphere floating in space.

The remaining maps are also very well executed and colored, mostly by hand, a few in coloured litho.
This is the only atlas that Garnier produced, according to Phillips. Tooley lists an 1860 edition. (Conf. David Rumsey Map Collection).

Reference: Phillips, 836.
