“Plan de Paris commencé l’an 1734″ by Michel-Etienne Turgot and Louis Bretez, 1739, named PLAN DE TURGOT. Large copper engraved plate, plan NUMBER 15 (the number is written at the lower right corner in the margin), with a papermark (filigrane). Representation of a part of the 1th and 7th arrondissement of Paris (actually): Louvre, Place Vendôme, Tuileries, Carroussel, Place Vendome, river Seine, Pont Royal, Quai du Louvre, Quai Malaquais, rue des Saint Pères, rue de l’Université, etc… This map belongs to the most famous Plan of Paris, in 20 different parts, numbered from 1 to 20. This order was entrusted to the geographer Louis Bretez, who began the plan in 1734 and finished it in 1739. Paris is represented house by house, in panoramic view known as “cavalier perspective” on a scale of about 1/400. The Plan presents all the monuments of the capital and even the design of the gardens since Louis Bretez had obtained from the City Office a visit warrant for all monuments of Paris. Its rapid execution has allowed to give a homogeneous image of Paris. What Turgot wanted was not a plan to fix the alignments of the streets, but an image of his city, beautiful and talking. It is the the most beautiful and faithful representation of Paris of the Ancient regime. An invaluable document for the history of Parisian architecture. 51,5 x 80,5 cm. / 20 x 31,4 inches.
