Atlas de Filipinas 1900 Complete With All 30 Color Lithographed Maps
First edition from the personal collection of a recently retired military historian/university professor. This is one of the first atlases ever made of the Philippines. It was commissioned by the U. Treasury Department in 1899 and completed under the direction of a Spanish Jesuit priest, Jose Maria Algue in 1900. Some of the gold leaf letters on the front cover have flaked off over the years, but what is left is firmly in place. The binding is intact, but the binding is loose between the main title page and the U. Government title page as shown in the pictures. All the pages on both sides of the title pages are secure in place with nothing missing or moving freely. The atlas is complete with the general information, index, and the 30 maps. It is 14.75 inches X 12.5 inches.

I had the atlas assessed by an antique map scholar that owns an antique map shop. He assessed the atlas as "very good condition" with the damage/wear to the cover as expected and. Has a cover in decent shape compared to many other antique atlases.

There are 5 pages with minor shelving damage to the outside edge that is shown in the pictures and 5 pages with single small/minor tears to the bottom margin caused by apparent careless turning of the pages. The antique map scholar said that. "Minor damage to the margins of the maps is also generally not an issue". All the actual maps are without damage and have beautiful color as shown in the pictures.

I ran out of space to put all the pictures up that I have taken. If you are interested in the atlas, please message and I will send you all the pictures of the atlas that shows all 30 maps and the complete condition described here.
