Comments: Beautifully lithographed travel poster for the Chemin de Fer d'Orleans a Rouen railroad company. Chaumont, originally built in the 10th century as a military fortress, was razed in the mid-15th century in a fit of vengeance by Louis XI and then immediately rebuilt in part with funds provided by him. The new building was primarily a renaissance castle like the others in the area with white walls and dark pointed turrets. The artist of this poster, Constant-Duval (1877-1956), was a prolific french illustrator. Losses to corners, chipping and tears to edges.

Many thanks for your help... Over the years I have spent many happy hours at the Argosy - mostly among your old maps. Whenever we have taken a trip, we have bought an old map of the country or area to remind us of where we've been. We have a whole wall of maps from the Argosy. As well as a number of your small prints of areas in the USA. They make wonderful presents for friends and family too - also some of your older books on special subjects. So you can see I am a big fan of the Argosy! - Katherine M.
