Specialist Notes

Facsimile edition of the rare map of Paris by Truschet and Hoyau, called "Plan de Bale" (AA 124), preserved in the Public Library of the University of Basel. Montorgueil in Paris, the designer Olivier Truschet and the engraver Germain Hoyau, who had joined forces to produce large-format images for hanging. A largely unpublished representation of Paris, with architectural and urban elements currently no longer present, and therefore UNIQUE testimony of Renaissance Paris.
