§ A single map from Quin’s An historical atlas; in a series of maps of the world as known at different periods... forming together a general view of universal history, from the creation to A.D. 1828 (London, 1830). His unique style was to show the map areas surrounded by black billowing clouds, the maps containing only the details known at the particular time. In this map, the Roman Empire had just defeated the Carthaginians in the last of the 3 Phoenician (Punic) Wars. The last of the 21 maps in the series was clear of clouds and showed the whole world.
