c1780 Guillaume Delisle - Philippe Buache: "LA POLOGNE Dressee
sur ce qu'en ot donne Staro- volsk, Beauplan, Hartnoch..," in two
versions, Paris, 18.8 x 24.3 inches / 47.9 x 61.8 cm. Both are the
seventh state: the cartouche, dated 1780, has replaced the word
"Royale" (as part of Deslisle's membership in de l'Academie Royale
des Sciences") with a double bar, a consequence of the French
Revolution. The map, based on a plate now over 70 years old, has
been updated with First, 1772, Partition coloring.
Giovanni Antonio Rizzi-Zannoni: "Carte Generale de la
Pologne...," Paris, 12 x 18 inches, in two versions from
Lattre's "Atlas Moderne;" the 1778 colored to depict
pre-partition boundaries, the 1780 colored to depict
results of the First, 1772, Partition. This is a reduced
version of his 12-sheet map of the Commonwealth.
1780 Gilles Robert de
18.5 x 16 cm. / 7.25 x

"Avec Privilege" in the
1780's editions below.
1780 Antonio Zatta: "IL REGNO DI POLONIA...,"
Venice. 25.5 x 33.0 cm, in two versions. A smaller
format than the usual Zatta atlas map -- this was
probably for a travel atlas. Second map, in two images, from

1782 Louis-Charles Desnos: "LES ETATS DE LA COURONNE DE
POLOGNE," Paris, 18.5 x 23.2 inches / 47.0 x 59.0 cm, in two
different versions. This is a late state of a map first published by by
Nicolas De Fer in 1716 -- hence the clearly updated publish date in
Gilles Robert de Vaugondy: "POLOGNE," 6 x 6 inches, in eight differently-colored versions, colored with wildly different boundaries, and often with publish dates long after the date on the plate. The Robert de Vaugondys produced many
atlases from 1740 to the end of the century. Apart from the large "Atlas Universelle'"and the small "Atlas Militaire," they allowed their maps to be 'licensed' by others. Later editions had new maps engraved, but they followed Robert de
Vaugondy's outdated geography, showing pre-First, 1772, Partition boundaries.
