This geographical work was conceived in 1668 as volume two of a series of four. It was a translation of Nicolas Sanson’s work. In this work he proposed a fourth volume as a marine atlas of the world, it was never published. Volume one is a translation of Bernard Varenius’ 1650 work which did not appear until 1682. This is a third edition published in 1693. Provenance: bookplate of Sir Joseph Radcliffe Bart. ESTC R2029; Skelton 90.
