Publication Author: Paz Soldan, Mariano Felipe, 1821-1886

Publication Date: 1865

Publication Reference: Sabin 59325; cf Phillips 2769 (Paris: Fermin Didot Hermanos), Phillips 5150 (A. Durand, French Edition); The Map Collector 67, pp 14-18, M. Layland; NMM 487; Phillips. Maps of America, p. 696 (Didot ed.); Catalogue of maps of Hispanic America, v. 2, p. 1

Publication Note: The first Atlas of Peru, with wonderful maps, plans, thematic maps, views and statistical information. The atlas exudes the optimism of the period. In addition to the forty five maps and plans, there are twenty three views and scenes, including a very large fold out panorama of Paz Soldan's home city of Arequipa. This issue's title page is the same as Sabin's; the title of the copy listed in Phillips does not have the dedication to Castilla and has Fermin Didot Hermanos as the publisher - which is also the case with the copy owned and described by Michael Layman in TM C. Apparently there were two Spanish issues made in the same year in Paris; Durand also published a Paris edition in French in 1865. The contents of our copy and Layland's copy appear to be identical, so perhaps only the title pages were different. Nine of the Department maps in our copy are hand colored, with the rest uncolored (normally the Department maps are uncolored). Paz Soldan published a large six sheet Mapa del Peru in 1864 (see The Map Collector). Atlas is bound in half leather brown marbled paper covered boards with "Paz Soldan. Atlas Geografico Del Peru" stamped in gold on the spine. David Rumsey Collection copy lacks pl. LIV.
