Description:

One of the earliest obtainable views of Paris

Nice early example of Munster's map of Paris, from Munster's Cosmographia.  The map includes two coats of arms and a decorative picture frame border. 

Excellent early city plan, including the fortified walls of the city and place names inside of the city and just outside its walls.  Excellent detail, including the bridges across the Seine.

The present example pre-dates the addition of the name of the City in the blank box at the top center.
