Rare map of Paris, illustrating the expansion of Paris's outer walls over the centuries and its 4 quarters.
Paris is divided into four districts:
- Notre-Dame district (South-East)
- Saint-Germain-des-Prés district (South-West)
- Temple or Marais district (North-East)
- Quartier du Louvre or Palais-Royal (North West).
The map was published separately and also accompanied Prévost de Saint-Lucien's work Le Provincial à Paris, ou Etat de Paris, published several times between 1787 and 1805.
The plan is based on a plan by Moithey published in 1772, and includes the arms of France and the city of Paris and shows the six successive city walls, watercolors at the time.
