Pub Note:
This was the first atlas of Argentina. Phillips notes that this atlas accompanied three volumes of text of the same title, also published in 1873. Phillips does not note this second edition of the same date as the first, adding one map. Martin de Moussy was unable to finish the atlas because of illness and it was completed by L. Bouvet. A beautifully engraved title page precedes the full title page and reads "Atlas de la Confederation Argentine. Bachelier Lith. Gve. Sanier, del. Imp. Lemercier & Cie. Paris." Most of the maps are without color; a few are hand painted in full color. Atlas is bound in quarter leather black cloth covered boards with "Atlas de la Confederation Argentine" stamped in gold on the front; spine is embossed with title "M. De Moussy. Description de la Confederation Argentine. Atlas."
