A rare and rather uncommon atlas containing 21 maps (6 folding). They trace world history from the Biblical Flood to the time of publication in 1830. The maps uncommonly reveal the world as was known at a particular time among dark clouds, with the clouds totally recede at the time of last major explorations and the American independence - quite symbolic. First edition. Published in London by R.B. Seeley & W. Burnside and printed in Surrey. This is a Nottingham Library copy.
