A handsome map of France showing the country divided into provinces. The map is boldly engraved with good detail throughout. The title cartouche incorporates the royal coat of arms and several distance scales. A panel at right displays the twelve coats of arms of the ancient governments, and includes the subdivided regions within each.
Nice impression with original color, and a repair in the lower margin.
