Antique uncolored map of part of France showing the area of Franche-Comte, by Tavernier, c. 1630-1639. Franche-Comte is a cultural and historical region of eastern France. This detailed map includes the cities of Dijon, Auxonne, Besancon, Montbeliard, and more . Shows an enormous amount of place names, small villages and towns, as well as topography pictorially with trees. No mapmaker or engraver is identified on the map, but we believe this edition may have been published by Tavernier, who is known for publishing atlases with maps from a variety of mapmakers. Very good restored condition, map has been cleaned, deacidified, and lightly backed (thus repairing some small seam separations). Some minor signs of age remain, including mild stains. Measures approx. 14.5 x 20.5 inches to the neatline.
