Another Langenes Collation
by
Roger Baskes

Roger Baskes, an atlas collector, has sent in a collation of his copy of the Langes/Visscher, complimenting the collation we ran in Issue 2. His letter appears in the Letters Section.
We are grateful for the chance to describe an atlas not in a public collection.
