Lovely, original outline coloring with a color-coded key embellishes the map.

Adrien-Hubert Brue (1786 - 1832) was a French cartographer active in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He held the office of Geographe du Roi and often signed his maps as such. In this position Brue contributed to thousands of maps and numerous atlases. His maps are known for their beauty, their clarity and accuracy. Many of his maps were published posthumously. Pierre-Jacques Picquet, the son and heir of his partner Charles Picquet, published the maps following the death of Brue, and they continued to be updated and republished for decades. Brue’s work is distinguished by a remarkably high standard of engraving and the high quality paper which he used.

Condition: The engraving of this map is of exceptionally high quality. The map is in A condition.
