Lutece ou Premier [-Huitieme] Plan de la Ville de Paris. Par M.L.C.D.L.M. [Nicolas de la Mare]

Coquart, A.





Eight engraved plans of Paris. Each approx. 45x55.5 cm (17¾x22"), backed with linen.

Scarce series of well-engraved plans of Paris delineating its growth and evolution from the time of Julius Caesar to the end of the seventeenth century. The plans were published in Traité de la Police by Nicola de la Mare. They were drawn and engraved by A. Coquart, signed in the plate, with some credited also to Nicolas de Fer. There was a ninth plan in the series as well, not present here. The linen backing is later but not recent.
