A beautiful 1712 map of southern Picardy, France by Guillaume De L'Isle. It depicts the French region of Picardy and covers from Bouchain, south to Soisson and from Beauvais north as far as Le Crotoy. Includes parts of the French departments of Nord, Aisne, Oise, Somme and Pas-de-Calais. The map renders the entire region in extraordinary detail offering both topographical and political information with mountains and forests beautifully rendered in profile.The region of Picardy is famous for the production of Maroilles, a popular French cow's milk cheese. This cheese is produced in rectangular blocks with a moist orange-red washed rind and a strong, distinct odor. The cathedral of Cambrai (the city of Cambrai is identified in this map), in the department of Nord is famous for the composers it employed in the 15th and 16th centuries. Among them were Philippe de Monte, Johannes Lupi, Ockeghem and others.A legend is included in the lower left quadrant of the map. This map was created by Guillaume De L'Isle in 1712.
