This beautiful map of Paris was hand-drawn by the king’s cartographer Nicolas de Fer in 1705. It is incredibly detailed, has multiple French inscriptions, and shows the city as it was at the beginning of the 18th century when it was the second largest city in Europe. This map is the last one in the series of eight maps published in a four-volume Traité de la police by Nicolas de La Mare. It was one of the earliest attempts to illustrate historical change with maps and shows the growth of Paris from Roman times up to 1705, the year of publication. Our skilled team hand-colorized the map with watercolor to additionally enhance the artwork. As such, this composition will be a show-stopper for any place it is put in.
