This is a c. 1943 J. Fissore and V. Danoy map of the Principality of Monaco, the second-smallest country in the world and also one of the richest. The map depicts the principality from the cemetery to Monte Carlo Beach and from the Route de la Moyenne Corniche to the Mediterranean Sea. Charmingly executed, over one hundred different locations throughout Monaco are identified either by labeling them directly on the map or by assigning them a number the corresponds to an index outside the left border. Among the identified locations are the palace, the cathedral, the museum of anthropology, the hospital, and several cinemas. Those locations marked numerically are the principality's hotels. Streets throughout the principality are labeled as well. Monuments, museums, theaters, post and telegraph offices, consulates, and banks are also identified in the index.
