Ain Department. Church of Brou at Bourg. Lorrain c1836.

by Lorrain, A.

Lorrain antique map of French Department of Ain in Auvergne Rhone-Alpes region. Vignette, Église de Brou de Bourg (Church of Brou in Bourg en Bresse).

Interesting original copperplate-engraved map by A. Lorrain for Atlas Departemental (Atlas of Departments) La France et ses Colonies (France and her Colonies) published in Versailles by Andrieux and Barreswil circa 1836 (with later hand-colour).

This is probably the prettiest map that we have seen of this region of France. Lorrain maps are well delineated with differentiation between the sizes of the towns and cities, and with additional information and Statistics at top left (in French).

The paper of this map was slightly stretched during printing. Otherwise the map is in relatively good condition with fine later hand-colour. The page measures 265 x 300mm (10 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches). To the intaglio impression (plate mark) measures 215 x 265mm (8 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches). .
