Comparing the Observations of Newton, Bradley and Maupetius

Rare map centered on Europe, without the western part of North America or the Pacific.

The map includes tables showing variations in longitude and latitude, as calculated by Newton, Bradley and Maupertuis.

Philippe Buache (1700-1773) was one of the most famous French geographers of the eighteenth century. Buache was married to the daughter of the eminent Guillaume Delisle and worked with his father-in-law, carrying on the business after Guillaume died. Buache gained the title geographe du roi in 1729 and was elected to the Academie des Sciences in the same year. Buache was a pioneering theoretical geographer, especially as regards contour lines and watersheds. He is best known for his works such as Considérations géographiques et physiques sur les découvertes nouvelles dans la grande mer (Paris, 1754).
