Antwerp: Francisco Laso, 1711 Fourth edition of this very rare pocket atlas which describes the world at the end of the 17th century. 16mo. 5¾x3¾ inches. 7 leaves, 280pp. plus 41 (of 43) folding black & white maps (1 hand-colored). One large historiated initial. Title page printed in red and black. Text in Spanish. Contemporary full calf, spine gilt extra. Spine quite worn with gilt quite rubbed, front inner hinge cracked, cords holding firm; a few maps with splits at folds, one map damaged at lower edge. A very good copy. The work was published in the former Spanish Netherland. The text is interspersed with lovely miniature maps. One of the missing maps is Mapa general de la Tierra, often lacking from known editions of this atlas. Also lacking is the map of the celestial globe. The last map, damaged at the lower edge, shows California as an island. Francisco de Aefferden (1653-1709) was a Belgian cartographer based in Antwerp; Francisco Laso was a book merchant..
