Second Known Example?

Rare early view of Paris, published by Jean Sauve.

The plan very similar to Pierre Bertrant's rare plan of Paris, first published in about 1650 and Gerard Jollain's view of 1670, but is clearly a different copper plate.

Jean Sauvé (1635-1692) was an engraver and publisher active in Paris, rue Saint Jacques, proche Sainct Yves.


We were able to locate only a single example in the Bibliotheque Nationale de France.

The present example if a variant edition, which bears Jean Sauve's name.  The BNF example would seem to be a later state, with Sauve's name partially erased.

J.Boutier, Les Plans de Paris, 107.
