Atlas of the Pavie Mission Vol. 2 by Auguste Pavie
Laos, Cambodia, Siam, Yunnan and Vietnam
Atlas of the Pavie Mission. Vol. 2 of the Pavie Mission Indochina Papers (1879-1895). This volume provides an overview of exploration work done in Cambodia, Siam, Laos and Vietnam by means of maps produced by the explorers and numerous itineraries of staff members of the mission. The various French expeditions, carried out by a score of prominent researchers under the name Mission Pavie, not only compiled a wealth of new scientific and historical information and details on natural history they also drew up accurate maps for areas where no western mapping work had previously been undertaken - especially in disputed border areas between Laos, Siam, Cambodia, Yunnan and Vietnam. This atlas also contains a number of color plates, masterpieces of the art of the time that were incorporated in various research reports of the mission. Short descriptions place these in the context of the work of the Pavie Mission as documented in the other volumes in this series. However, this Atlas should be used together with Volume 1 of the series: Auguste Pavie, Pavie Mission Exploration Work. Laos, Cambodia, Siam, Yunnan & Vietnam.
