Important atlas volume to Raynal's esteemed work, "Histoire philosophique et politique des établissemens et du commerce des Européens dans les deux Indes." The maps are by Rigobert Bonne, engraved by André and others. There are maps of the world, the European nations, and the myriad nations and states of the world with whom they conducted commerce. 25 of the maps related to America, north and south, including "Carte de la Partie Nord des Etats Unis, de l'Amerique Septentrionale," an early map of the recently minted United States. This copy is in rare untrimmed state, the extreme edges of the contents darkened and a bit worn as may be expected.
