Throughout the 18th Century, Johann George Schreiber, his widow, his son and his heirs published in Leipzig a large number of maps, especially of German states and statelets. The atlases which bound these together were usually named Atlas Selectus. This is a collation of Baskes A6838, with 163 of these maps, extending into the beginning of the 19th Century.

A very typical 18th Century German atlas was the sammelatlas, a composite atlas with several publishers' maps. Baskes A3434 has 183 large folio maps, with a large number of maps of America, by the many members of the Homann, Seutter and Lotter families, and this atlas is collated here.

The late 17th Century Venetian Vincenzo Coronelli is most famous for his globes. But he was also an astonishingly prolific engraver of rectangular maps, of all sizes. Baskes A3580 is an atlas of 139 large folio maps, exquisitely engraved, sometimes entitled Corso Geographico Universale.

When in 1730 the Robert de Vaugondy family inherited the inventory of the Sanson family, the most important French mapmakers of the 17th Century, they began to put their own imprints on most of them, but probably sold very few. Baskes A1668 is a collection of 186 beautifully-engraved, but increasingly out-of-date, Sanson maps, probably assembled about 1798 by the successor to the Vaugondy family, Charles F. Delamarche.
