If you are looking for a special gift, choose hand-coloured maps over printed maps. While admiring the map, keep in mind that all the coloured lines and filled-in colour were painstakingly done by hand.

This large French map of the Carlovingian Empire is a finely executed hand-coloured map published in 1862 in Paris.

Slight curling at the corners, as per photo. Small tear at bottom margin since repaired with archival mending tissue. There is a tab glued onto the back by a previous owner, which does not affect the front of the map.

The map is a gem and is in good condition. Blank on the back. Patina consistent with age. A copy of the front page of the atlas will be sent as proof of provenance.

Sent to you in an acid-free sleeve with sturdy backing or rolled in a tube.

Size of map area: approx. 16.5" x 11"
