Scarce pair of maps of the Eastern Hemisphere from Bodenheur's rare Atlas Curieux.
This pair of maps was part of a comparative cartography section of the Atlas, with the left map showing the eastern hemisphere in the "French Manner" and the right map showing the "Dutch Manner."
An interesting early study.
Gabriel Bodenehr the Elder (ca. 1673-ca. 1766) was a German engraver and publisher. He originated views of many German cities, for example the first plan of Passau (1710), and is best known for his Atlas Curieux (1704). His son, Gabriel the Younger (1705-1779), followed his father in his profession and was also a well-known engraver.
