click here to view a large version in a separate window

The titlepage and dedication page from the 1787 edition of Clouet's "Geographie Moderne" that has been corrected and augmented with the new discoveries of the "celebrated" Captain Cook and the changes in North America. The titlepage displays the title on a banner supported by putti. Beneath are allegories of the continents, classical muses and further putti engaged in geographical tasks. The atlas is dedicated to "L'Academie Des Science Et Belles-Lettres De Rouen" and Clouet's dedication to them, the proceeding page in the atlas, is included here. The work was printed in Paris "chez Mondhare et Jean rue St Jean de Beauvais pres celle de Noyers". The manuscript name, perhaps of a previous owner, has been added to the title banner.
