This large, detailed map depicts the former province of Artois in northern France between Flanders and Picardie. The map identifies major cities such as Arras, St. Omer, and Lens, and places many other towns, abbeys, castles, and forests. A large title cartouche flanked by two regional figures decorates the map.
A nice impression with original color, light soiling, and offsetting. There are tiny chips and tears in blank margins, some of which have been repaired with archival tape.
