Splendid map of Provence featuring the Mediterranean coast from the Camargue to Villefranche, including Isles d' Hyeres, Marseilles, Toulon, Caannes, Antibes and Nice. Crisply engraved and detailed throughout with decorative (uncolored) cartouches enclosing the title and distance scales with numerous coats of arms. A Dutch title is outside top border.
Lovely original outline color. Some minor tissue repairs in blank margins.
