An extraordinary feat of Cartography Published by Etienne Turgot in 1739, our Paris map is one of the most decorative and celebrated maps ever made. Every street and building of the pre-Hausmann era is shown. Not a window, chimney-piece or turret has been omitted. Todays suburbs were yesterdays orchards. Windmills dotted the landscape. Its creation was a Herculean project that took over five years to complete. Turgots Plan de Paris is a remarkable technical achievement, a flight of the imagination created many years before the first manned balloon flight and the invention of photography. Comes in a set of 25 sheet art paper portfolio. Please note the frames displayed on the image are NOT included.
