This handsome woodblock map of France includes a panel giving the names and principal cities of the various regions. The land is graphically engraved with mountains, rivers and forests. A coat of arms with a fleur-de-lis decorates the map. German text and a decorative woodblock engraving on verso.
A nice impression with attractive color and some bleeding of color on verso. There are some areas of paper weakness confined to the blank margins, resulting in a few short tears, and a faint damp stain in top blank margin.
