Plan of Paris by Melchoir Tavernier is a modified and updated version of one earlier produced by Matthias Merian (15931650) in 1615. Tavernier decorated his plan with a scheme of vignettes depicting the notion of social hierarchy. Above the title is a gallery of individual scenes framed by arcades. The King, Louis XIII (160143), is depicted at the far left of the gallery, and his Queen Anne of Austria (160166), is at far right. Between them are men and women of Paris, differentiated by their social status. Taverniers map was published first in 1625, after Louis XIII had quashed a major Huguenot rebellion, and again in 1628 and finally this one in 1630. In Great – Excellent Vintage Condition!
