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 Spanish succession issue of 1789 which was a series of debates and decisions, taking place and adopted prior, during and after the Cortes sittings. They were initiated by king Carlos IV, who suggested that the succession law in force be altered; the change would consist of giving preference to females of main descendant line over males of collateral lines.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 .
