This handsome chart of Europe is a wonderful example of Chatelain’s elegant maps. Included in the 1721 edition of Atlas Historique, published by Chatelain in Amsterdam, this large fold out chart is the second map in volume one. This expansive map includes Iceland, and Russia in the north as well as the Black Sea and the northern tip of Africa in the south. Two tables, listing more than 175 countries along with their principal cities, border the map. This fine map is a wonderful example from Chatelain’s important text. By combining a wealth of information and geographical observation, with delicate engraving and an uncomplicated composition, this elegant map is a superb example from the golden age of French mapmaking.
