Wonderful engraved "time map" showing the history of Rome from the time of the year 1984 BC to 500 AD.

The sides of the image are adorned with vignettes of various Roman ruins spread across Europe. Portraits of Roman emperors line the bottom of the map. The Roman people are shown emanating from a beautifully-colored volcano at the top of the chart.

A fascinating and beautiful mnemonic device for representing Roman history in visual form.

Another state of the chart (see BNF GE C-9108) bears an imprint line dated 1821 below the image.

Édouard Hocquart (1789-1870?) was a French mapmaker and engraver active in the first half of the 19th century. He was responsible for several other attractive time maps.
