Etienne Turgot 1739 Map of Paris Portfolio

An extraordinary feat of Cartography Published by Etienne Turgot in 1739, this 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 (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. This portfolio is beautifully presented with 25 heavy weight art paper sheets that can be framed individually or pasted directly onto a wall to achieve a stunning and unique feature measuring 2.4m wide x 2m high.
