About This Item

Paris (Rue des Augustins): le Rouge , 1760. Contemporary marbled cloth boards, rebacked with banded leather spine and gilt-lettering. All 89 plates, including American ports (Quebec, Louisbourg, Nouvelle orleans, Fort Dauphin, Cayenne, Ville Marie), plus Table (index) at rear. These are b&w (as issued) copperplate engravings, on laid paper, all in very good or better condition. Le Rouge was trained as a military engineer, but did quite a number of cartographic works, often with a military slant, between 1740-1780 (see Moreland & Bannister, ANTIQUE MAPS). Listed as Phillips' entry 2975. A rather uncommon small atlas. Neat owners signatures.. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

About The Prime Meridian: Antique Maps & Books

The Prime Meridian: Antique Maps & Books is owned and operated by Joel & Deborah Kovarsky. We first opened in 1998, but have had a decades-old interest in old maps, books, and paper, stemming from a comparable long-standing interest in how knowledge is used. Our business is run via the internet. We do not run an open shop, however we do welcome visitors by appointment only. Before attempting a visit, please contact us. We are a specialty business, dealing in antiquarian maps and related books (atlases, history of cartography, selected reference books, etc.). Please feel free to contact us for specific inquiries.
