This is a beautiful c. 1878 city plan or map of Paris, France by the French cartographer A. Vuillemin. Centered on the Seine River, it covers embastilled Paris as contained in the Thiers Wall. Parts of the Bois de Boulogne and the Bois de Vincennes is also included. It reflects the transformation and modernization of Paris under Napoleon III and George-Eugene Haussmann.Known in French as the 'Grands Travauin x,' Haussmann's redesign of Paris defined it as a modern city, with narrow alleyways and confusing streets replaced by a broad network of grand boulevards, imposing facades, parks, and monuments. Divided according to 20 Arrondisments, the map notes individual streets, monuments, churches, town halls, railways, gardens and palaces. Important and historic buildings are shown in profile. This map was drawn by A. Vuillemin and engraved by E. George.
