  • [Title-page] Atlas Historique

    Copper engraved title-page, 40 x 24.5 cm, black and white as issued, blank verso. Engraved for the first volume of Chatelain’s historical atlas. The classical muses represent Chronology, History, Navigation and Geography. Atlas braces himself against a crumbling pyramid, supporting the heavens, while the title of the atlas is suspended on a banner, borne by the winged angel of fame.
