The work was published in Paris and Brest by Demonville and Malassis in 1775. The engravings feature maps, charts, and coastal views primarily revised by Mannevillette & the hydrographer, Alexander Dalrymple. The engravings were completed by Guillaume De la Haye. The Atlas focused on coasts of the East Indies, Indochina and Formosa, Africa, Australia, the Red Sea, and India.
