1683 (dated on Volume 4 of 5 of the first, and French, edition of Allain Manesson-Mallet's:
"Description de l'univers..,." published in Paris by Denys Thierry. These three maps are on
consecutive right-hand pages of the copy in the possession of the New York Public Library: the
page numbers make sense, but the "Figure" Roman numerals are out of sequence. Also, the
third map appears to be printed from the same plate as the second map, with the addition of
the phrase "Tome III" on the lower page margin. Why this third map was bound into the atlas,
I can't explain -- but it illustrates the difficulty of accurately identifying the provenance of one
of these maps merely by the plate image. From The New York Public Library's Rare Book Room
