Beautifully engraved map that details Brittany and locates Nantes, Rennes, Vannes, St. Paul de Leon, and numerous islands. The map is flanked by two columns of French text and surrounded by a wide rococo-style frame with a military theme. The map (10 x 9") and decorative border were printed from two separate copper plates and assembled with the text for this beautiful atlas. Map is fully colored; cartouche and decorative border are uncolored, as issued.
Map has a crisp impression and fine original color and original margins. Lightly toned along centerfold, else very good.
