With Additions Showing Improvements in the Harbor and Other Places

Fine large plan of Nice, published in Paris in about 1865.

The present example has been extensively annotated in red throughout the map, but most notably in the harbor,  where designs for improving the breakwater in the Harbor and enlarging the existing mole is illustrated.

The work was done after the Treaty of Turin was signed in 1860 between the Sardinian king and Napoleon III, when Nice was definitively ceded to France as a territorial reward for French assistance in the Second Italian War of Independence against Austria, which saw Lombardy united with Piedmont-Sardinia.
