1833 ATLAS MAPS Cartography Navigation Voyages Illustrated French Petit Monin
Charles V. Monin was a 19th-century French cartographer who was one of the first Europeans to print maps under the printing process of lithographic engraving. His prints became extremely popular and were in high demand because of their beauty and attention to detail. He used steel plates in his print runs rather than the more economical copper. His two most important publications are ‘Petit National Atlas’ and ‘Universal Atlas of Geography.’
This incredible printing of ‘Petit National Atlas’ features 98 impressive maps of world countries and islands, as well as French regions and provinces, each with scenic illustrated figures. (these early volumes were thought to include 100 maps; however, actual count in Monin atlases never included exactly 100 maps, always 96-98.). Notable maps include views of Algeria, Senegal, Bourbon Island, Martinique, Newfoundland, Guyana, and many more.
