This great plan of Paris conveys a wonderful amount of information including vignettes of major buildings, bridges, trains, and monuments. It also includes a table with an alphabetized street index; a list of suburbs with distances to Paris, populations and festival days; a table listing forts surrounding Paris with distances to the center of the city; and a list of passages located throughout the city.
A nice impression and backed in linen with heavy toning and a number of cracks and small abrasions in the image. There are several small worm holes.
