This beautifully engraved map portrays France as it was after the creation of the French Republic in 1789, and the division of the country into departments in 1790. The map extends to show portions of Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and a portion of Corsica.
A nice impression on a sound sheet of hand laid paper with some offsetting, and a short marginal tear.
