1862 (undated) 22 x 25 in (55.88 x 63.5 cm)
Stunning 1862 chromolithograph view and map of Paris, France, and vicinity by Guittet. Centered on the Paris and the Seine River, this map covers from Triel to Varinnes and from Sevran to St. Remi. This curious production combines aspects of both a map and a view. Paris, in pink, seems almost three dimensional, with its towers, monuments, and other important buildings drawn in profile. The Theirs Wall and the the ring forts are clearly visible. To the west a passage through forests leads to Versailles. Other tree lined roads lead to Orleans, Fontainebleau, Bale, and elsewhere. In most towns, individual buildings are rendered and some important buildings are recognizable.
This map was issued as part of a four map atlas, the Nouvel Atlas Topographique issued by A. Compan in 1862.
