Engraved map. 335 x 290mm (13¼ x 11½").
A map of Southern England and Northern France, with an extensive key marking the types of soil. The most prominent feature is a loop of grey shading from East Anglia, across the English Channel to Picardy, Champagne, and round to Normandy and Hampshire, marked 'Pierre blanche de païs à gravier' (roughly white stone and gravel). Interestingly this map proves the wine growing areas of France & England.
