A beautiful and highly detailed map of Provence in southern France that covers the region from Arles to Monaco.

This example provides a great deal of information with place names, castles, monasteries, rivers, lakes, woods, mountains and fortifications prominently engraved. Locates Nice, S. Tropez, and much more.
Very crisp impression with strong, original full color. Cartouche uncolored as issued. Just a hint of toning at centerfold, else fine.
