A beautifully engraved map of the Rhone and Loire valleys showing Vienne, Lyon, and Macon. It is fully illustrated with mountains, forests and hundreds of tiny villages. The title cartouche and distance scales are flanked by cherubs and a surveyor, and the sheet is further embellished with a coat of arms. Latin text in verso.
Lovely impression and original color with minor toning in the wide margins.
