Antique French Map from 1891 of France. Included are the populations, waterways and train routes of France. All of these are as it were in the 19th century. The railroads in France were owned by five private companies in 1891. It was in 1938 due to financial problems, that the French government incorporated them into the National Railroad, known today as the SNCF.

This beautiful map represents France in the XIX th century. The details in this map are spectacular.The map was made by F. Prudent, Chief of the intelligence of Geography of the French Army. This whole map was engraved by Erhard. He was known as one of the top engravers at the time. It took a day to carve one square inch on a copper plate. You can see how painstakenly he worked to create this beauty.

I only deal with original antiques. I guarantee all of my vintage to be authentic.


Engraving by: Erhard in Paris, at 42 Bonaparte's Street

Dimensions: 18"1/4 by 14"3/4
