Antique Paris Tourist Map with monuments and bicycle routes c1900
Wonderful Garnier Frères antique folding tourist map of Paris monuments and its surroundings, circa 1900.
The Nouveau Paris Monumental is double sided. One one side, there’s a map featuring the metro and illustrated with Paris monuments. The reverse side shows chateaux and monuments beyond the city, some of which have disappeared. The map shows some metro lines, train routes and there’s a “légende vélocipédique” for cyclists.
Printed before Metro line 12 was built and when suburbs like Aubervilliers were just leafy hamlets.
Still with its original smart hardback cover with embossed detail.
Measures 29 inches x 22 ¼ inches
Very good condition, no tears or stains. Slight foxing around the corners.
