An extremely rare scientific atlas, published in 1707, followed by 29 maps published and oft corrected by P. Moullart-Sanson, with 18 maps relating to the Americas.

First part illustrated with 21 plates of spheres and hemispheres, second part illustrated with 8 maps, 5 for the continents, 2 for the climates and one for the Colonial demarcation lines between Castille/Spain and Portugal, all with original outline colours. The atlas is dedicated to Jean-Paul Bignon, Abbott of Saint-Quentin, an influential member of the French Academy and the nephew of the then secretary of state Pontchartrain.

Nicolas Sanson (1600-67) was succeeded by his sons Guillaume and Adrien. Their nephew Pierre Moullart-Sanson bought the map business from the former in 1694 and in 1704, after Guillaume's death, received a royal privilege to continue to publish the family maps.
