This marvelous bird’s-eye-view poster of Paris was created for the French Government Tourist Office in 1958. The entire center of the city is depicted in great detail, with the most important and well-known landmarks colored in tones of russet. The map provides a marvelous guide for visiting the city with all boulevards named as are even the shortest of streets. Seventeen bridges crossing the Seine are depicted, and boats of a wide variety ply its waters. Major railway stations are drawn in detail. Studying the city from this perspective and at this magnitude provides swift orientation for anyone unfamiliar with the city.
Condition: This unusual map of one of the world’s great cities is backed with archival line and is in A condition.
