Issued Paris, c. 1865 by Dufour.
Engraved by Gh. Dyonnet.
Scarce, lovely antique engraved folio map with original hand color. Large oversized format, among the largest commercially produced atlas maps at this time.
In near VG or better condition, minor light surface age wear and toning as typical, some faint minor dampstaining in the blank margins. Overall, however, the map remains clean and well-preserved.
The printed area remains visually pleasing -- a nice impression of a scarce and desirable antique map.
Original centerfold as issued.
Sheet measures c. 32" x 24".
Engraved area measures c. 29 1/2" x 22".
