Atlas volume for Abbe Raynal's "L'Histoire philosophique et politique des etablissements et du commerce des Europeens dans les deux Indes." Title-page provides no publication data. Maps and charts are in very good condition. Includes 2 world maps. Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century. He served as Hydrographer to France, and during his term, he produced a number of detailed and useful maps, particularly of coastal regions. His work is often devoid of decorative cartouches and compasses roses and marks a turn in European mapmaking away from decoration toward technical mapping.
