Maker: Rev. Jose Algue/ USC&GS.
Antique printed color atlas of the Philippines published in 1900. The maps in the atlas were drafted by Philippine draftsmen under the direction of Rev. Jose Algue, S. J., director of the Manila Jesuit Observatory, and the atlas was published by the US Coast and Geodetic Survey. The story of how that came about is printed in the beginning of the atlas, after the two title pages- one in Spanish and one in English. The text on the maps is in Spanish. All maps appear to be single sheet with nothing printed on the verso. The maps are in very good condition. The atlas cover is worn at the edges but solid. Some of the pages are cracking near the binding (see the last photo). Ex Libris. The atlas size is approx. 15 x 13.25 inches. **SOLD**
