Victor Levasseur's "Atlas National Illustre" and "Atlas Universel Illustre" are among the last decorative atlases published. The maps are all lavishly illustrated with scenes of the countryside, products and activities indigenous to the region.
Lovely map of the Asian continent surrounded by steel engraved vignettes depicting costumes of the various peoples of Asia, Adam and Eve, and several exotic animals. One of the last maps produced in the ornamental style. A fine and beautiful example of this most decorative chart.
Beautiful impression with fine original outline color. Modern, full color on surrounding vignettes. Full margins.
