Librairie Hachette & Cie. Manuel de Géographie Moderne Contenant Cinquante-Quatre Cartes Imprimées en Couleurs.

Paris: Librairie Hachette & Cie., 1884. Each leaf 16 1/2 x 11. 54 maps, some folio, others double folio; on heavy stock. Color lithography. A few pages spotted while most are bright and clean. Marbled end papers. Half leather with gold tooling, rubbed. Binding is fine at the spine and the extremities could use some polish and concentration.   A lovely volume.  

This atlas features very detailed maps of the entire world. A focus on the United States shows present-day Oklahoma as "Indian Territory," and North and South Dakota are one Dakota. Such detail is also characteristic upon plates depicting the rest of the world.
