This is a fascinating 1857 map of the French department of Cote D'Or, France. Part of France's Burgundy or Bourgogne wine region, a premier wine-growing region of France. It produces what are arguably the world's finest, and most expensive Pinot noir and Chardonnay wines. The whole is surrounded by elaborate decorative engravings designed to illustrate both the natural beauty and trade richness of the land. There is a short textual history of the regions depicted on both the left and right sides of the map. Published by V. Levasseur in the 1852 edition of his Atlas National de la France Illustree.
