    Four Mexico City maps and views on two sheets from the atlas of Prevost d'Exiles' influential travel book, Histoire Generale des Voyages. On the first sheet is Bellin's highly detailed map of Mexico City and the Valley of Mexico, with many place names and topographical features, and next to it, Chedel's lovely, evocative view of Old Mexico City just after the Spanish conquest engraved. On the second sheet is the companion view of New Mexico City, showing the results of Spanish drainage and waterworks projects, and next to it, Bellin's equally well detailed map of the Lake of Mexico and its environs "at the time of the Spanish conquest" before much of the lake and surrounding marshes were drained.

    Jacques-Nicolas Bellin(1703-1772) was a French cartographer, hydrographer and geographer. Born in Paris, Bellin was a member of the French intellectual group, the philosophes, a member of the Academie de Marine and of the Royal Society of London. His career spanned over five decades in which he produced a large number of maps for the Dépot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine.
