Rediscovering the Jansson & Hondius Atlases of Henry Vignaud
The Appendix Atlas of the British Isles and Northern Europe is an appendix atlas composed of approximately 23 maps, which primarily cover the British Isles. This title was created by the University of Michigan Stephen S. Clark Library to represent this unique compilation of maps. As this is a composite atlas, the publisher and publication date is unknown. However, while the publication of the atlas is unknown, it is apparent that the maps were previously included in other atlases before being bound into this atlas. Each map in this atlas has a set of manuscript numbers written in the top right corner of the verso along with the subject of the map written in French. While many of the maps of the Vignaud map collection can be identified using Peter van der Krogt's Atlantes Neerlandici, nine of the maps found in this atlas differ slightly from those documented in Van der Krogt's bibliography, nor have we found additional mention of these states in other resources.
