Pub Note:
First edition, with a second edition in 1834 listed by Phillips. The maps are well done, slightly smaller than the contemporary Brue and Lapie maps (except in the case of the double sheet maps), and with the North American maps perhaps not quite as detailed as the Brue and Lapie maps. Nonetheless, the entire atlas achieves a beautiful overall effect. This copy with the maps bound on long edges, unfolded with large margins. Twelve of the maps are double sheets. The maps are dated 1824 to 1826. Vivien was born in 1802 and died in 1897. This was his first atlas published. Outline color. Atlas is bound in half leather red paper covered boards with "Atlas De Vivien" stamped in gilt on the red leather spine.
