Incredibly detailed map showing everything from tiny villages to 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.
Very early and fine impression, original bright hand coloring. Cartouche uncolored as issued. Small, light area of surface soiling at top, a little marginal foxing, else fine.
