Ager Parisiensis Vulgo l'Isle de France, by Jansson, (18.2 x 13"). Decorative map of Paris and the surrounding region including Pentioise, Senlis, and Meaux. This map of the environs of Paris was based on a manuscript map attributed to Francois de la Guillotiere and in the possession of Pierre Pithou; both of which are mentioned in the title cartouche. French text on verso.

Ducatus Turonensis, by Blaeu, (19.5 x 14.8"). This is a lovely map of the Touraine region with Tours and the Loire River at center. Two decorative cartouches feature allegorical renderings of Demeter and her bounty. Coat of arm at upper left. German text on verso.

Both with color offsetting, else very good with wide original margins.
