Description:  This folio map engraving, with original hand-coloring and printed on fine watermarked chain-linked paper, is from Claude Buy de Mornas's
Atlas méthodique et élémentaire de géographie et d'histoire". This 4 volume work was published in Paris by Desnos between 1761 and 1762. First edition of this atlas deals with the historical development of cosmography, geology, astronomy, oceanography, winds, streams and is illustrated in a series of impressive engraved plates with globes, spheres, continents, world-systems as well as having many maps of the continents & globe-projections. All maps and diagrams are bordered by an elaborate rococo surround, printed from a separate copperplate.  During the second half of the eighteenth century Paris became the map making center of the world. Two of its most important contributors were L. C. Desnos and Claude Buy de Mornas. Louis-Charles Desnos (France, 1725 - 1805) was both a globe maker and publisher of maps. In the former capacity he was appointed globe maker to the King of Denmark but spent most of his life working in Paris. Besides this map, which was published in "Atlas Methodique et Elementaire", L.C. Desnos also published the maps for "Routes des Postes" (1761), "Nouvel Atlas d'Angleterre" (1767) and "Atlas General" (1786). Claude Buy de Mornas
died 1783) was both the publisher and author of the text for "Atlas Methodique et Elementaire". He also served as Geographer to King Louis XVI and the Duc de Berry. Both Louis-Charles Desnos and Claude Buy de Mornas ran their Paris establishments from the Rue St. Jacques. These original engraved maps are important not only for the subjects each represent, but they also demonstrate how strongly the disciplines of geography and astronomy were allied in the eighteenth century.  England's National Maritime Museum includes seventeen examples of these L. C. Desnos and Buy de Mornas maps in its permanent collection. They can be seen at their web site www.nmm.ac.uk.  Each Full Page Size: app.  22" x 16" Condition: Very good - light toning, creasing and staining. Double-page with a vertical fold as published, blank on verso. Please examine the scan.
