Other examples of this composite atlas in three parts include an engraved title page NOUVEL ATLAS D'ANGLETERRE...PARIS 1767. With the title page ITINERAIRE DE TOUTES LES ROUTES DE L'ANGLETERRE placed before the Senex road maps. This example lacks the dated title page and has the road map title placed at the front of the work, it is likely that it was published in the same year.
Boards rubbed and worn. Splits at spine but holding firm. Contents clean and undamaged throughout. There is a small discreet circular blind stamp in the bottom corner of the last free endpaper for Neatham Mill Library.
A very good copy of an uncommon composite atlas with the full set of Senex road maps with French titles.
