Important map of Guillaume de L'Isle corrected by Philippe Buache and edited by Dezauche in 1800 .This map is full of interesting historical fact , one is the state of the political situation just prior to the French revolution ,at the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, Switzerland attained legal independence from the Holy Roman Empire. The Valtellina became a dependency of the Drei Bünde again after the Treaty and remained so until the founding of the Cisalpine Republic by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1797.Overall a fascinating map to study. The King’s name is removed from the title ( cartouche )and De l’Isle and Buache are referred to as First Geographers to the Academy of Science, rather than the King since we are now in the consulate's Napoleon era. It would make a great set framed on a wall .

26.3/4 x 21 inches , cooper plate engraving .Condition report: Good condition; light toning and occasional faint age spots; some marginal handling marks . I guaranty my Antiques to be original.
