France, Paris: "Paris A Vol D'oiseau". (Bird's eye view of Paris.)
"Paris A Vol D'oiseau". (Bird's eye view of Paris.)
Wood engraving by Henri Linton after the drawing by Emile Bourdelin. Published by "Le Monde Illustré". Paris, 1860
Extraordinary folio-size, detailed bird's eye view of the French capital.
Print was published in the named magazine and has, therefore, several horizontal and vertical folds to make it fit book size. These folds are little disturbing, however. Repired tear in left margin. Two tiny repaired holes. Wide margins, some general light age toning. Under all circumstances an impressive, desireable engraving!
54 x 83.8 cm ( 21.3 x 34.9").
