Atlas Historique : H.A.Chatelain

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This is the frontispiece to Volume I of the encyclopaedic "Atlas Historique" that was published in seven volumes between 1705 and 1720, with later editions appearing up to 1739. Here four classical muses represent Chronology, History, Navigation and Geography, each holding a representation of their subject, thus medallion portraits, an open book, a rigged sailing vessel and a globe are also shown. The academic and educative purposes of the atlas are further highlighted by various putti with a volume of Herodotus and a map of Europe. A very decorative and meaningful opening to the entire atlas work. This example has the imprint "Chez L'Honore Et Chatelain Libraires Pres De La Maison De Ville".
