Pub Note: 1st edition, with five postal maps added, as issued. With the list of subscribers and the extra postal maps of England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The French postal map is dated 1758. All five were added after the printed list of maps was printed, but are mentioned by Vaugondy in the preface, so they may have been an afterthought. An owner has added their titles to the printed list of maps, in ms. Engraved title page, Advertisement, and Geographical essay giving the sources of the maps. This atlas was reissued until 1799 (Phillips), with later issues having a map of the United States. In original half leather patterned paper covered boards with spine reading “Nouvel Atlas De Mrs. Robert.” One of the first atlases based on scientific surveys, in the tradition of D’Anville and De L’Isle. Outline color.
