Description

Carte des Colonies Françaises (Guadeloupe, Marie Galante et la Martinique). Map of the old French colonies of Guadeloupe, Marie Galante and Martinique.

Lovely map from one of the last decorative atlases of the nineteenth century.
The rather simple map is framed by medallion portraits and coats of arms, and is set against a background of scenes of the countryside, products and activities indigenous to the region filling the foreground.
Victor Levasseur's "Atlas National Illustre" and "Atlas Universel Illustre" are among the last great decorative atlases published.
This map comes from the Atlas National Illustre.
