The editions represented here were published between 1845 and 1869 in Paris by Amable Combette (all editions between 1845 and 1858) and Pelissier (all editions between 1859 and 1869). The maps of the Atlas National Illustre are particularly well-known for their ornately engraved borders. The collection includes multiple copies of the maps of many Departements. Thirteen maps included in this collection are from French language sources other than the Atlas National Illustre.
