Description

Title sheet of a rare 4 sheet map of the Diocese of Coutances, published in Paris.

This is the lower left sheet of this rare 4-sheet wall map, showing mainly a title cartouche with the islands of Minquiers and Banes Grélets to the right. In top right tip of Britany with S.Helier.

The present example bears the imprint of Pierre Mariette, but there are erasures suggesting earlier editions.

The map was engraved by F. de la Point and Jacoba Panouse. The BNF entry for this map suggest that Panouse is in fact Jacquelin Panouse and that Mariette is G. Mariette de La Pagerie.
