The map has two side panels, the left side contains a title, a table of the political divisions and scale of miles. The right side bears the royal coat of arms and imprint between which is a further table. An extremely rare third state, the second by Bodenehr, contains the path of a solar eclipse in 1724 which was promptly erased for a further issue. The final state was published at the hands of Georg Christoph Killian (1709-80) who published the supplemental ‘Atlas Curieuz’ in 1738. The title is reworded, the imprint altered, and ‘Deucaladeonium Mare’ added to the North Atlantic. The atlas is rare. Provenance: acquired from Doreen Green, 1994; private English collection.
