A wonderful hand-coloured antique map of the Doubs department in France, with an old world look.

The full map is shown in the last photo. Other photos show details from the map.

Alexandre Vuillemin (1812-1880) is the cartographer. Printed in France by Paris Migeon. These maps are known for their elaborate font and beautiful little vignettes showing places as well as famous people from the region. From an atlas printed in France in 1883.

The map, printed on thick paper, is in very good condition and is ready for framing. The paper has nice patina. Blank on the reverse.

This is an original hand-coloured map from 1883, not a reproduction! Bananastrudel sells only originals.
