This attractive titlepage features Atlas with a celestial sphere on his shoulders. In the foreground Cybele, Mother Earth with a fortified crown on her head and a lion at her feet, Neptune and Geography work on a terrestrial globe surrounded by instruments of cartography. With the imprint of Elwe this is one of the latest appearances of this long-serving titlepage, which had originally been published in Pitt's "English Atlas" and had also been re-issued by Ottens.
