This is a decorative and densely engraved map of the Languedoc region of France, extending east to the Rhone River, west to about Agen, and north to the Dordogne River. Political boundaries, rivers, towns, universities, and more are identified. The map is adorned with two decorative cartouches featuring symbols representative of the region. An alternate French title appears above the map: "Le Gouvernement General de Languedoc Divise en Trois Lieutenances Generales..."
A nice impression with full original color on watermarked paper with minor marginal soiling.
