This is a fine print reproduction of a marvelous bird’s-eye-view poster of Paris created for the French Government Tourist Office in 1958.

The entire center of the city is depicted in great detail, with the most important and well-known landmarks colored in tones of russet. The map provides a marvelous guide for visiting the city with all boulevards named as are even the shortest of streets. Seventeen bridges crossing the Seine are depicted, and boats of a wide variety ply its waters. Major railway stations are drawn in detail. Studying the city from this perspective and at this magnitude provides swift orientation for anyone unfamiliar with the city.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
