1739 Paris Portfolio Map
The 1739 Paris portfolio map measures 94.5 x 63". An extraordinary feat of Cartography Published by Etienne Turgot in 1739, our Paris map is one of the most decorative and celebrated maps ever made. Every street and building of the pre-Hausmann era is shown. Not a window, chimney-piece or turret has been omitted. Today's suburbs were yesterday's orchards. Windmills dotted the landscape. Its creation was a Herculean project that took over five years to complete. Turgot's Plan de Paris as a 25 sheet art paper portfolio is a remarkable technical achievement, a flight of the imagination created many years before the first manned balloon flight and the invention of photography. It is printed in heavy art card stock. It includes every street, house, church & park shown in fine detail. 25 sheets fit together to create a complete map of Paris. This map assembles into a 94.5 x 63" wall area.
