= The very rare UNFOLDED first edition of the atlas, the only edition published by Fouquet. "Van de eerste uitgave bij Fouquet waren de prenten in plano ongevouwen, bij de uitgaven van Changuion en Den Hengst werden zij door den binder één maal gevouwen, terwijl bij die van Maaskamp iedere prent drie maal verticaal gevouwen is." (Nijhoff/ Van Hattum 11). "De Atlas van Fouquet is ongetwijfeld de fraaiste serie afbeeldingen die van Amsterdam bestaan. In afwijking van de vroeger verschenen series staat bij Fouquet het afbeelden van de schilderachtigste punten van de stad op den voorgrond. Hoewel zijn prenten bijna alle op de traditioneele wijze genoemd zijn naar de torens, de poorten, de kerken en de andere groote gebouwen die er op zijn voorgesteld, zijn zij echter zoo op te vatten, dat zij het stadsgedeelte weergeven, dat het genoemde gebouw omgeeft. Op die wijze verschaft de Atlas van Fouquet een wandeling door de straten en langs de grachten van het Amsterdam der XVIIIe eeuw, het Amsterdam dat nog in ongerept bezit was van haar monumentale gebouwen en huizen, en den stratenaanleg uit het bloeitijdperk; hierbij werd ook in het oog gehouden het zoo pittoreske straatbeeld dier dagen weer te geven."
