THIS LISTING IS FOR A RARE, ORIGINAL FRENCH’CARTE DE CASSINI’ No 129, HESSIAN BACKED COMPOSITE FOLDING MAP, COVERING THE: LA GACILLY, MAURON, RENNES, CHATEAUGIRON, AND CHATEAUBRIAN AREAS OF FRANCE. THE MONOCHROME MAP IS MADE UP OF SIXTEEN SEPARATE PAPER SECTIONS, WHICH ARE ATTACHED TO THE HESSIAN BACKING. THE MAP MEASURES APPROXIMATELY 95cm X 62cm. THE CASSINI FAMILY CONSTRUCTED THE INDIVIDUAL MAPS BETWEEN THE MID 1700s AND THE EARLY 1800s. AND THEY WERE THE FIRS MAPS EVER PRODUCED BY USING THE’GEODIC TRIANGULATOR’ METHOD OF SURVEYING. THIS PROVED TO BE A CONSIDERABLY MORE ACCURATE METHOD OF MAPPING THAN HAD BEEN USED IN THE PAST. THE CASSINI’S PRODUCED THE FIRST GLOBAL MAP OF THE KINGDOM OF FRANCE, WITH ALL OF THE AREA MAPS BEING TO THE SAME SCALE SO THAT THAT ALL 182 SHEETS COULD BE PLACED TOGETHER MAKING ONE COMPLETE MAP OF FRANCE, WHICH MEASURED AN IMPRESSIVE 39 feet X 38 feet! THIS RARE MAP WOULD MAKE A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY CARTOGRAPHY COLLECTION.
