This handsome map of ancient France is based on information from Caesar's De Bello Gallico. It is engraved to show the mountains, rivers and forests with only a few ancient place names. The names of famous people and tribes of Gallia, as described by Caesar, are listed at sides. Latin text on verso.
There is some chipping in the wide margins, well away from the map.
