Note: This is an unusually thorough teaching atlas for the period: each map has marginal text on both sides which explains the function of the map -- topographical, historical, political, etc. Because of its comprehensiveness, this atlas must have been used by advanced students of geography. Editions were published in 1767, 1780, 1787, 1791 and 1793. Clouet also published a set of wall maps of the continents between 1776 and 1793. Full color. Covers are purple marbled paper-covered boards with a new leather spine stamped with the title "Clouet Atlas" in gilt.
