At the time Brion de la Tour and Desnos published this detailed and elegant atlas of the French coastline, France was had been recently and soundly defeated by the British in the in the Seven Years’ War (1756–1763). At the Treaty of Paris (1763) France lost its North American empire. Britain's success allowed them to eclipse France as the leading colonial power. France sought revenge for this defeat, and in 1766, the year of this re-issue of the atlas, the French Kingdom annexed Lorraine and 1767 bought Corsica from Genoa. From the distinguished library of Charles-Pierre Claret de Fleurier, who as a very young man took part in the Seven Years War. He was a Member of the Institute and the Bureau des Longitudes, who with Ferdinand Berthoud experimented with early marine chronometers, notably aboard the frigate Isis between 1768-1769 by traversing the Atlantic, in an attempt to beat Britain in the race to find a reliable way to calculate longitude. Fleurieu became inspector of the second submission of maps and plans of the Navy and deputy inspector of the Marine Academy in 1776, and in 1776 was appointed director of ports and arsenals. He prepared campaign plans for the war with American War of Independence for the Minister of Marine campaign, and took part in the re-creation of the port of Cherbourg. He wrote instructions for the for La Perouse's voyage to the Pacific, and became Minister of Marine in 1790. Phillips 5998; Tooley, p. 44. Seller Inventory # 72lib1474

At the time Le Rouge published this detailed and elegant atlas of the French coastline, France was embroiled in the Seven Years’ War (1756–1763), the last major conflict before the French Revolution to involve all the great powers of Europe, and therefore this atlas would have been vital to France's defense strategy. Broadly speaking France, Austria, Saxony, Sweden, and Russia were aligned on one side against Prussia, Hanover, and Great Britain on the other, but the war also involved conflict over the colonies of Great Britain and France, mostly for control of North America (the French and Indian War of 1754–1763) and India.
