Extremely detailed map showing detail down to tiny villages, forests, farmland, walled cities and more. Centered on Paris, the map extends to show these cities at the extremities - Ablis, Messe, Herissy, Senlies, and Mante. Details in Paris includes its fortifications and the gardens at Vincennes. Beautiful cartouche with several putti.
A very strong & crisp impression. A small (1" x 1/4") piece of paper is missing in top margin, well away from neatline.
