Comments: This exquisite map depicts the entirety of France and a small portion of the southern British Isles. Published circa 1730, the map is extremely detailed with fortified cities, towns, roads, rivers, mountains, and more. To the far left is a dramatic black-and-white cartouche which includes portrait of King Louis XV and images of Neptune and Mercury. In addition, there are 12 coats of arms for the regions of France in the upper left corner below the map's scales. The map is in good condition with minor overall wear and some chipped margins. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century who served as geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers. This map is a wonderful representation of France in the first half of the 18th century.

I usually receive my packages as soon as delivered. However, this one had quite a night outside in a snow storm. Thanks to the extra care in packaging and double layer of wrapping cardboard and plastic bag, the book survived in pristine condition.... It sat in a three foot snow drift pounded by snow plows, in minus 25Temps overnight and was discovered this afternoon, the top of the package peeking out of the drift. If not for the attention to packaging and packing materials, this book would have been destroyed. Please let the people who package our treasures know that they make a difference. Whether in person or mail order, you folks rock. Best wishes from the (damned) frozen Adirondacks... - E.E.
