Genuine antique
dated:

1786

Description:

A pair of maxillary spheres, one according to Copernicus and the other based on Ptolemic knowledge.

This is the scarce issue of these spheres without the large text panels usually found on the left and right hand sides.

From Desnos, Atlas General, Civil, Ecclesiatique et Militaire…., Paris.

Mapmaker:

Louis Brion De La Tour (fl 1756-1803)

Beyond the fact that Brion was an engineer by profession and held the post of Ingenieur-Geographe du Roi, little is known of his career. He published a wide range of statistical works and a number of atlases, published by the well known French mapmaker Louis Charles Desnos (1725-1805).
