This is a fascinating 1742 map of the modern French departments of Gironde, Gascony (Gascogne), and Guyenne. This coastal region is the seat of the Bordeauin x wine region and produces many of the world's finest reds. Shows numerous vineyards and chateauin x. Also details the neighboring district of Gascony, home to Armagnac. There is an elaborate title cartouche in the upper right quadrant bearing various armorial crests specific to the region. This map was originally drawn by the prominent French cartographer Guillaume Delisle (De L'Isle). The plates form Delisle's atlas were later acquired by the Amsterdam publishing house of Covens and Mortier, who reissued his maps with dramatic Dutch style colorwork. The present map came from the 1742 Covens and Mortier Amsterdam edition of Delisle's Atlas Nouveau.
