Notes The British Library has an example of this untitled atlas. “Bellin’s signature is on the majority of the charts… The dates on charts 1-70 range from 1738-1758. . .charts showing the discoveries of Captain Cook in the Pacific must date from the late 1770s. Many charts or maps have in their titles the phrase ‘Pour server a l’Histoire Generale des Voyages’ (the encyclopedia set of tomes by L’Abbe Prevost d’Exiles).”
