[MAPS].

[MAPS].

17 hand-drawn and coloured maps of the world, neatly captioned in black ink in French (one folding).

Oblong 4to. [265 x 210 x 6 mm]. [17]ff. Bound in later quarter black cloth spine, with black and purple decorative paper boards, front board with earlier oval paper label with printed border and lettered 'By de Weduwe de Moor en Zoon'.
[c.1800]

With pencil acquisition notes at the rear. The map of Turkey in Europe (f.17) shows Greece before its Independence in 1822. The map of Poland (f.13) shows it in three parts, as finalised in 1795. It stayed in this state until 1807 when the Duchy of Warsaw was created. They are an attractive series of maps, though the artist was not always strictly accurate (for example, Bath is positioned to the north of Bristol and Birmingham appears above Cambridge).
