This is an extremely attractive 1860 pocket plan or case map of Paris, France by the French map publisher Andriveau-Goujon. Covers central Paris as it appeared following the city's historic 1860 expansion from 12 to 20 Arrondissements. Detailed to the level of individual buildings with fortifications, palaces, churches, roads, railroads, rivers, forests and gardens noted. Shows the elaborate forest gardens surrounding Paris, in particular the Bois de Boulogne. A table in the upper left quadrant details the city's 80 Quartiers - which correspond to number sections on the map. The lower left and right hand portions of the map are dominated by a detailed street index. Dissected and mounted on linen. Comes with original linen binder. One of the largest and most impressive pocket maps of Paris we have come across.
J. Andriveau and J. Goujon (fl. 1805-94), working collectively as Andriveau-Goujon, were among the most prominent cartographic publishers in 19th century France. Maps by Andriveau-Goujon are often confusing to identify as they can be alternately singed J. Goujon, J. Andriveau, J.Andriveau-Goujon or simply Andriveau-Goujon. They published numerous pocket maps and atlases throughout the 19th century and often worked with other prominent French cartographers of the time such as Brue and Levasseur. Andriveau-Goujon are especially well known for their high quality case and library maps.
Very good. Original linen backing worn at some fold lines.
