Description

This is a unique and fascinating collection of 24 Paris maps and panoramic views dating from the 17th century to the present day. Included with each map is information about the original printing and a brief text that places it in historic context. The selections include some of the earliest known maps of the city as well as topographical maps, views of iconic and historic locations, transport maps, maps used for advertising and tourism, road and bicycle maps, and much more. The maps and plates are printed on high quality matt paper and specially bound so they can be removed from the book and framed in standard-size 11' X 14' picture frames for display at home or in the office or classroom. Each unique and stunning representation of historic Paris is exquisitely reproduced to show off its original colour and detail. Each map includes the original printing information on the back and is accompanied by a brief text that frames the map in an historic context and further illuminates its qualities.
