Article description

Rare atlas by Jollain with engraved title and 38 engraved maps. This small atlas of 38 maps is known by several publisher names. The first edition that is recorded, is that of Jean Boisseau in 1643. The maps of this atlas are faithful copies of the "Atlas Minor" of Mercator-Hondius of 1628, this atlas was copied by N. Picart (1657-59). The same edition exists with Jollain's address. Jollain finally reissued the atlas in 1667 with some modifications. The scales are most often removed (because too inaccurate) and replaced by the mention of "excudit" by Jollain and sometimes the date of 1667. The titles of Russia and Muscovy were interchanged.
