Decorative view of Providence, Rhode Island, which appeared in Jacques Milbert's rare Itineraire Pittoresque du Fleuve Hudson &c.

Milbert travelled to the United States in 1815 and returned to France in 1823. During his stay he studied and recorded information about the topography, flora & fauna and social history of the US. He also made a series of sketches of the areas through which he traveled, which culminated in the publication of his Itineraire Pittoresque du Fleuve Hudson et des parties laterales de L'Amerique du Nord.
