Catalogue Note

The twenty plates in this volume comprise a large and magnificent detailed bird's-eye view of the whole of Paris, prepared between 1734 and 1739; the first plate in the volume is an overview on a reduced scale. When pasted together the map would have a complete decorative border with a vignette containing a description at the foot of the map.

Please note the image showing the whole map is an illustration to show what the map would look like if the map sheets were joined together.
