Dept. du Finistere.
1852 (undated) 12 x 17 in (30.48 x 43.18 cm)
This is a fascinating 1852 map of the French department of Finistere, Normandy, France. This area of France is known for its cider production and excellent boar hunting. The map also includes the island of Ouessant, which marks the north-westernmost point of European France. The dramatic island and castle of Mont Saint-Michel is depicted just of the coast. B The whole is surrounded by elaborate decorative engravings designed to illustrate both the natural beauty and trade richness of the land. There is a short textual history of the regions depicted on both the left and right sides of the map. Published by V. Levasseur in the 1852 edition of his Atlas National de la France Illustree.
