An impressive example of map-making, designed to be conveniently portable but not at the expense of detail or accuracy. The index and engraved title call for only twenty-nine maps, indicating the work had been expanded upon but those elements not updated accordingly. This atlas was a collaborative publication between Tobias Conrad Lotter and Tobias Lobeck, first published in 1747 with an almanac.
