This bird's-eye plan of Paris also depicts the surrounding faubourgs and environs. A key at left identifies important buildings in the city, town and university areas of Paris. Finely engraved by Herman van Loon and published by De Fer's son-in-law and successor Guillaume Danet.
A nice impression with pleasant light toning and a couple small holes in the left blank margin.
