Product Description

This map shows its age some, but it's a special treasure, for sure. Originally a fold-out page inside Figaro's 1889 Bleu Guide, the map boasts that from the top of the Eiffel Tower one can see as far away as 90 kilometers, all the way to Fontainebleau and even beyond Chartres! I've included photos taken by natural window light which makes it appear whiter than it is. In the direct scan (third photo) you'll see more accurately that the map is an antique cream with bold red. It measures about 11 by 10.5 inches.
