Note: Pen-and-ink. A large atlas of outline maps by Dangeau, perhaps some of the earliest examples of outline maps used for teaching geography. This copy was put together by Dangeau. The maps were probably issued separately, and this atlas is one of the few bound copies. A note in French opposite the manuscript title page says that Buache had examples of these maps in his library. Some additions to the book were made by an owner subsequent to Dangeau's death in 1723. This copy was in the Phillipps Manuscript collection (no. 24790) and was sold by Sotheby's in 1903 and 1919. Of the 80 maps, 36 are 18 sets of 2 maps each, one a regular map and the other with blanks to be filled in by the student, with the regular maps having flaps on both sides with explanatory text; these maps teach basic notions of geography of the World, Europe, and France. 23 maps present administrative, both civic and ecclesiastical, divisions of France. 21 maps are of the countries which then formed the Holy Roman Empire of Germany, in the same manner as the maps of France. There are also 44 tables illustrating the history and genealogy of the French dynasties; four of these tables are beautiful illustrations of coats of arms. The atlas is bound in full dark green leather covered boards with title and ornate border embossed in gold; the spine is stamped with "Geographie de la France par l'Abbe de Dangeau 74. Cartes, 38 Planches."
