Large-scale plan of Paris and environs, including Versailles, St. Germain, Montmorency, Annay, Neuilly and Choisy. The heart of the city is shown with its fortifications and the outlying forts are shown in red. Parks, forests, rivers, canals, and railroads are all well depicted. Keyboard style border.
A nice example with full original color and professional repairs to several short centerfold separations. A chip in bottom blank margin has also been professionally repaired.
