A detailed map of the region about 40 kilometres around Paris and Versailles. It was published by Johann Baptist Homann in his ‘Grosser Atlas’. The map extends to Mantes, Senlis, Melun and Rambouillet. It is decorated with a fine figurative cartouche. The map contains a lot of compressed detail including small villages, forests, farmland, walled cities and more. Paris is central to the map and includes its ancient walls and nearby gardens of Vincennes and the Bois de Boulogne. Further west the grounds of Versailles extend in equal size to the city of Paris itself. The title is retained in a beautiful cartouche with several putti. Shirley (BL Atlases) T.HOM-1c, no.11.
