La Lettre par Arnoul. Paris. Chez J. Goujon & J. Andriveau. Geographes - Editeurs. Rue du Bac, No. 6, Pres le Pont Royal. 1836.
Note Considered by many to be the artistic and factual high point in the comparative mountains and rivers charts, a convention developed in the 19th century. Beautifully colored with fine graphics and art and closely corresponding statistical tables, it presents an appealing balance. Different mountain ranges in different colors. Extensive annotations on vegetation, volcanic activity, and lichen, no doubt derived from Humboldt. Of course, due to the early date, the geographical data does not reflect many later discoveries, like taller waterfalls in Yosemite or the actual length of the Nile. Shows 7000 meter high hot air balloon flight by Guy-Lussac in 1808. Mounted on heavy linen. Sheet 48 in disbound atlas.
