Pub Note: 
Quarto atlas accompanying 10 text volumes. Contains 13 folded maps, hand col. in outline. First ed. A very rare work, especially when complete with the atlas. As a complete set (10 v. plus atlas) it has appeared by once in the auction records (1978). "A classic work -- dry, factual, authoritative -- by an author who was active in different stages of the revolution and served as Secretary of the Interior of Gran Colombia. Mainly political-military emphasis; written from the viewpoint of New Granada but with good information on Venezuela and Ecuador" (Griffin). "Obra estimada y rara" (Palau). "Basic to the study of the independence in Colombia" (Watson). Printer address in atlas is no. 6, not no. 1 as in text vols. Rumsey Collection copy in original boards, newly backed with calf spine: Historia de Colombia - Atlas - 1827.
