Stannard & Son’s, Perspective View of Paris and its Environs. Shewing All the Fortifications and Redoubts, together with the Lines of Defence Recently Thrown Up, and the Roads, Rivers, and Railways Communicating with the Interior. Compiled from the Latest Official Sources, by Alfred Concanen. ” With the imprint “Printed and Publsd. 1st 1870, by Stannard & Son, 7, Poland St. ” There is also a note bottom left “Alfred Concanen del et lith. A magnificent Bird’s-Eye View map of Paris, drawn and lithographed by Alfred Concanen and published in 1870 by Stannard & Son, London. The map was constructed to illustrate the defences put up to resist (unsuccessfully) the Siege of Paris in 1870 – 1871, which led to victory for Prussia in the Franco-Prussian war. The defensive wall can be seen quite clearly on this panorama, but the view extends quite a long way out, to Bezon and Aubney in the North, and to Arcueil and Joinville St Maur in the South. All sorts of details are marked – roads, railways etc. As well as the most important buildings. This is a very scarce item – Copac lists only 4 copies , and worldcat only those in the British Library. The item is of added interest because the artist, Alfred Concanen, became better known for his wonderfully imaginative Illustrated Music Covers which became fashionable in the late Victorian period. This is a large Panorama, some 75cms x 51.5cms. Condition: Generally in good condition. It is mounted on linen, the backing stained towards the top. There is faint evidence of water stains at the bottom right of the front, but it hardly shows. The top margin has been trimmed with no loss of the map – probably for framing. The item will be sent rolled in a tube. I have other Antique Maps, Prints and Books in my shop – please see my other items. I also have Concanen’s 1876 Perspective View of Turkey in Europe.
