1780 ATLAS 50 Bonne MAPS Raynal Philosophical History of Indies South America The atlas tome from Raynal’s most famous work! Guillaume Thomas Raynal was a well-known French author during the late 18th-century, Age of Enlightenment. He is best remembered for his work ‘Philosophical and Political History of the Indies’, a work that covered political and social questions through the lens of voyages and world exploration. Throughout the latter-half of the 1700s, the work was an important survey of the East Indies, South America, West Indies, and parts of North America. In addition to geographical notes, Raynal covers commerce, religion, and even slavery in the New World. This atlas features the maps and cartography of Rigobert Bonne, often considered the most important French cartographer of the 18th-century. His maps, including those in this atlas, are highly regarded for the attention to detail and beauty.
