A handsome map of the area surrounding Parma and Piacenza, with the River Po at top and a portion of the Apennines at bottom. The map is filled with cities and pictorial topography. A pair of cornucopias overflow onto the block-style cartouche. French text on verso.
A good impression on a sheet with oxidized original color. There is a verdigris crack at the bottom of the cartouche. Some scattered foxing, mostly confined to the margins.
