HERE ARE REMARKABLY FINE FOLD OUT MAPS (FOLD OUTS AND SINGLE PAGE), MANY VILLAGE AND CASTLE VIEWS OF THE CHAMPAGNE AND BRIE REGION OF FRANCE C. THIS BOUND VOLUME, 12.75X8.5X3/4 INCHES TIGHT WITH A TOTAL 0F 51 IMAGES AND MAPS IN THIS VOLUME, CLEAN, CRISP, BLACK AND WHITE, WITH NO FOXING OR DEFECTS. THIS VOLUME IS THOUGHT TO BE PART OF THE SERIES OF ALL REGIONS OF FRANCE, TOPOGRAPHIA GALLALEA, THE LEAD CREATOR BEING MATTHEU MERIAN, WITH MARTIN ZEILLER. HAVING SPENT SOME QUALITY TIME OVER THE YEARS IN THE CHAMPAGNE REGION THESE IMAGES ARE FINE EXAMPLES OF WHAT STILL CAN BE SEEN IN THE VILLAGES AND TOWNS MAKING UP THIS ICONIC AREA NE OF PARIS. WHAT I PARTICULARLY ADMIRE ABOUT THESE TRULY ARTISTICALLY WELL DONE IMAGES ARE THEIR CLEAR, FINELY DRAWN TRULY BLACK AND WHIE IMPRESSIONS WITH NO MISPRINTS, BLEEDS OF INK WHICH FOR ME IMMEDIATELY RUIN THE PURPOSE. CLEARLY THE MAKERS AND PRINTER WERE OF THE HIGHEST LEVEL. SOMEHOW THEY HAVE SURVIVED TO THIS DAY TO LOOK NEW AS IF RARELY VIEWED, WITH FEW HANDS AND OIL LEFT BEHIND. A GREAT TREAT TO OWN AND TO BE ABLE TO BE THE PROTECTOR OF THIS VOLUME FOR SO MANY YEARS HAVING FOUND IT AT A STALL ON THE COBBLESTONES OUTSIDE OF SMALL BOOKSELLERS STALL IN REIMS ON A LOVELY DAY, WALKING AROUND ON A LOVELY SUNNY DAY AFTER A WONDERFUL LUNCH AND FLUTE OF CHAMPAGNE AS IF, AS THE STUDENT I WAS HAD FINALLY GROWN UP ENOUGH TO HAVE ALL THESE EXPERIENCES ON MY OLD AND EVEN ACT LIKE I COULD AFFORD ALL I WAS DOING ON THE GLORIOUSLY MEMORABLE DAY.
