This large decorative map provides excellent detail throughout Provence. These details are keyed to an extensive legend that includes roads, fortresses, abbeys, cloisters, castles, universities, courthouses, ports, five different sizes for towns, and much more. The beautiful title cartouche is enclosed in a garland with two cherubs flanking the royal arms and a river god at the base representing the great Rhone River.
A dark impression with original color, marginal soiling, and an archivally repaired centerfold separation at bottom that just enters the map border. There are remnants of non-archival tape on verso that show faintly through in top corners of map.
