A particularly interesting map, this is Karl von Spruner's 1865 rendering of France or Gaul under the Roman Empire. Like most of Spruner's work this example overlays ancient political geographies on relatively contemporary physical geographies, thus identifying the sites of forgotten towns and villages, the movements of armies, and the disposition of lands in the region. A large inset in the lower right focuses on the important Roman provinces of Alpes Cottiae, Maritimae, Narbonesis II, Viennensis. As a whole the map labels important cities, rivers, mountain ranges and other minor topographical detail. Territories and countries outlined in color. All text is in Latin. The whole is rendered in finely engraved detail exhibiting the fine craftsmanship for which the Perthes firm is known. Of particular interest to classical scholars.
