This finely engraved map covers the coastline from Berck to just past Gravelines. The map is filled with rivers, forests and tiny villages and ornamented with a strapwork title cartouche, a sailing ship, and a unique distance scale.


Condition: B+

A damp stain in the upper right margin, barely enters the map border, else the map is near fine.

Estimate: $150 - $200
