Dordogne, Perigord in Aquitaine, France Department. Levasseur c1854

by Levasseur, Victor

Beautiful Antique map of Dordogne Region of France. Carte Ancienne de Geographie de D├ępartement.

Original steel-engraved map of Dordogne in Aquitaine, with its geography surrounded by a superbly engraved narrative of the region, with illustrations of produce,commerce, industry, local landmarks, peasants in regional dress, historically important people, and scrolls with statistical information. Illustrations are by V.E. George and Charles Smith, illustrations by Aristede-Michel Perrot and Raimond Bonheur, and geography and statistics by Victor Levasseur.

Levasseur established his reputation as a mapmaker between 1838 and 1854 with these beautiful maps for one of the most spectacular atlases ever published, Atlas National Illustre (Illustrated National Atlas). The outlining within the map is contemporary (from the time of publication). The later fine hand-colour to the heavily engraved decoration certainly makes this a stunning map.

With wide borders as published, this map is approximately 36 x 54cm (14 x 21 inches).
