Paris Monumental et Metropolitain.
c. 1920 (undated)
22 x 27 in (55.88 x 68.58 cm)
This c. 1920 map of Paris, France, is one of the most desirable of the 'Paris Monumental' series. Designed with the tourist in mind, this map covers the walled center of Paris and its immediate vicinity. Important buildings, including the Eiffel Tower, are rendered in profile, as are the various suburban communities surrounding the center. Also notes all major streets and subway lines. Though undated we can assign an approximate date due to the development of the subway system and the map's overall style and construction. On the verso there is a similar map covering the greater Paris environs. Possibly prepared by the Paris based printing firm of F. Dutal.
Very good. Original fold lines. Similar map of the environs of Paris on verso.
