1771 -Original Antique Map FRANCE regions of LANGUEDOC, FOIX & ROUSSILLION

1771 -Original Antique Map FRANCE regions of LANGUEDOC, FOIX & ROUSSILLION. A fine and rare original antique map titled. Carte du Gouvernments DE LANGUEDOC DE FOIX et de ROUSSILLION. ATLAS MODERNE OU COLLECTION DE CARTES SUR TOUTES LES PARTIES DU GLOBE TERRESTRE c1775. A beautiful 1771 example of Rigobert Bonne’s decorative map of the French winemaking regions of Languedoc, de Foix and Roussillon. Covers the region in full from Auvergne to the Spain and the Mediterranean. The Languedoc wine-growing region area is home to a wide variety of vineyards and is the oldest and largest in France. The department of Aude is famous for its wide variety of vineyards and wine production. In the east are the wines of Corbieres and la Clape, in the center are Minervois and Cotes de Malpeyre, and in the south, blanquette de Limoux. A wide variety of wines come out of the Pyrenees-Orientales region, including the famous Muscat wine. This wine can be tasted as an aperitif or with dessert. It pairs especially well with Roquefort cheeses. The remote mountainous part of Languedoc is rural, sparsely populated, and extremely beautiful. Lozere is famous for its cheese production. Their Roquefort,’Bleu des Causses’, and Tomme de Lozere varieties, for instance, are world-renowned. Aveyron, centered on Rodez, is famous for its production of Roquefort, a flavorful ewe’s milk blue cheese. This region is also known for the legendary Bete du Gevaudan, a terrible man-wolf who terrorizes the countryside. In 1773 he succeeded Jacques Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the HYDROGRAPHER AT THE DEPOT DE LA MARINE. Working in his official capacity Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne’s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses. While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal. Bonne would later become the Geographer to the King of France. 1743 – 1793 was a Paris based bookseller, engraver, and map publisher active in the mid to late 18th century. Lattre published a large corpus of maps, globes, and atlases in conjunction with a number of other important French cartographic figures, including Janvier, Zannoni, Bonne and Delamarche. He is also known to have worked with other European cartographers such as William Faden of London and the Italian cartographer Santini. Paris court records indicate that Lattre brought charges against several other period map publishers, including fellow Frenchman Desnos and the Italian map engraver Zannoni, both of whom he accused of copying his work. Lattre’s offices and bookshop were located at 20 rue St. Overall size of the map is 51cm x 39cm with large margins, perfect for mounting & framing CONDITION: Excellent overall condition with contemporary hand colouring and the usual centrefold, as issued. As would be expected with antique maps of nearly 250 years old, there will be some slight ageing and toning, but once mounted and framed, will not be noticable.
