Notes

Rare separately issued map of Provence.

The map is remarkably detailed and gives information on cities and towns, universities, cathedrals, monasteries, churches, church diocese, aqueducts, farmland, forest, salt beds, post roads, bridges, and lakes. Below the map is an elaborate title cartouche, together with a depiction of a classical ruin, and a personification of a river.
