FIRST EDITION of Turgot's Monumental Joined View of Paris, stretching to over 10 Feet.This expansive engraved view of Paris covers the first eleven arrondissements of modern Paris. With a combined width of over ten feet, this archivally joined plan makes for an arresting centerpiece.

It is widely regarded as one of the most important city views of all time
Loeb-Larocque Rare Maps and Books specializes in maps, atlases and travel books from the 16th - 19th century.
The Librairie Loeb-Larocque was founded in 1958 by Béatrice's father Louis Loeb-Larocque. Originally he arrived in France from Germany shortly after World War II. He first started an antiquarian map and book shop in Monaco. Then he shortly moved to Paris. He built a company specialized in early maps, atlases, travel books and prints. The shop was located at Rue Le Peletier in Paris until Béatrice's father's death in 1996, and was frequently visited by collectors and fellow dealers from all parts of the world. At present, the office is located at 31 rue de Tolbiac in Paris in the lively 13th district, a 5 minutes walk from the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and China Town. Visitors are welcomed to visit our shop by appointment only from Monday through Friday.
