This assembled copy includes almost all of the charts listed in M. Mor 1, but also some of M. Mor 7 in Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici vol. IV, plus 16 (out of 17, omitting no. 3) numbered prints demonstrating ships, two maps of Hanway's Nieuwe en wetenswaertige reizen, Haerlem, 1755, and a Witsen chart, 1712, preceded by an engraved t.p., a red and black printed t.p. and an illuminated t.p. where the space for the title has been left blank with a ms. inscription: Zee Atlas, inhoudende.
According to Koeman the charts are of French origin, but were engraved and printed by Pieter Mortier in Amsterdam. Some charts bear the imprint Paris, 1693, others, Amsterdam, P. Mortier, or Amsterdam, Jan Cóvens & Corneille Mortier.
The charts are hand colored; some are folded.
Authorship of Neptune françois attributed by Bib. Nat. to Sauveur and Chazelles.
