Charming map of France and Belgium showing 'modern' topography with ancient place names. It is adorned with a fanciful title cartouche featuring a faun pouring wine for Bacchus, topped with the crest of France.
Nice impression and later color. Professional repair of a 1/2" binding tear at left with paper added to the binding trim to facilitate framing. A short tear just into the map at bottom has been repaired on the verso.
