Very interesting large French chart illustrating the various religious divisions in Western Europe and Egypt. The chart provides tables of French text describing the persecutions of Christians, chronology of various kingdoms, popes, etc. Included is a map (7 x 8.5") of Western Europe and another (5.7 x 7") very detailed map of Egypt. The chart appears to be one sheet of a two-sheet chart, as there is no neatline at right. Still attractive in its own right.
