A rare original Atlas scholastic us by famous German Geographer Homann. This atlas in his original binding contains 31 double page maps all in original period colors. The binding in brown leather shows some minimal issues as these atlases were intended for students in the 18th century in Germany and are rare survivors.
The atlas title page shows 36 maps but I believe this is the wrong title page or the book was rebounded without few maps as I did not see any loose tabs. 31 maps are present please see map list below.
The maps printed on thick paper are beautifully illustrated with large cartouches typical of the period. Maps are from early 1720s to mid and late 1780s as it was typically done with Homann atlases. The maps overall are in good condition for the period and considering its age.
