"Lutezia citra de Parigrini...di Francia"
Published by Munster, 1564
This superb reproduction of the original hand colored woodcut map of Paris, France entitled, "Lutezia citra de Parigrini...di Francia", was published by Munster circa 1564 in Cosmographia Universalis, a descriptive geography standard for more than a century and translated into several languages.
The Paris of the time is shown as somewhat pastoral as the engraver has even depicted farm homes and homes built over the river.
