Very decorative set of the World & Continents

LEVASSEUR, Victor.

[Set of World & 6 Continents.]
Paris, A. Combette, c.1845. Outline colour on the maps. Seven steel-engravings, ea. c.310 x 410mm.

A fine set of 7 maps, each map with original outline colour, within a highly decorative engraved border, with vignettes of costumes and animals. They were published in one of the last decorative atlases, the 'Atlas Universel Illustré' which, unlike earlier sets, has grouped the East Indies, Australasia and the Pacific on one plate, 'Océanie'.
On the map of the Americas Texas is a republic: the population table gives it a population of only 200,000.
