This plate shows two hemispheres, showing the equator, tropics and polar zones of the world, in the cusps and corners there are six smaller diagrams showing ‘Disposition des Parallels’ and ‘Explication des Zones’ etc. In the early eighteenth century, French cartography overtook the Dutch in terms of accuracy and design. Chiquet’s delightful Nouveau et Curieux Atlas was typical product of the time.
