1889 Garnier Pictorial Map of Paris, France withMonuments

1889 Garnier Pictorial Map of Paris, France w/Monuments. WE SELL ONLY ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAPS – NOT REPRODUCTIONS. Title: Nouveau Paris Monumental Inineraire Pratique de L’ââtranger Dans Paris. Description: An iconic c. 1889 chromolithographic tourist pocket map of Paris, France. Presented as a same field birds-eye view, this map centers on the Seine River, and covers the embastilled heart of modern Paris. Issued as a tourist piece for the 1889 Exposition Universelle , which introduced the Eiffel Tower, buildings and monuments shown in profile, including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Sacre-Coeur, the Pantheon, etc. Paris itself is set as if in a verdant garden surrounded by the Bois de Boulogne, the Bois de Vincennes, and various suburban villages. In the north, under a blue sky, rolling hills stretch indefinitely into Normandy towards the English Channel. A Cinematographer’s Perspective. Tom Conley, referencing the map in his brilliant discussion on cartographic influences in cinema describes it beautifully, âöthe north, at the top, is capped by the Sacre-Coeur; the station at the Port d’Orleans marks a southern limit; to the west the maze of alleys in the Bois de Boulogne offers a fantasy of infinite promenades under leafy trees; to the east, at the Place de la Triomphe de la Republique, is found a sculpture celebrating secular France, that is protected by the moat-like circle of a subway line. A railway inside of a circular, crenelated wall of mediaeval aspect surrounds much of the city. Blocks of pink, denoting the inner space of the city, are cut by a broad swath of white lines indicating the width and length of Baron Haussmann’s creation of boulevards. The Seine, colored in blue, bends its way through Paris, dividing the Right Bank (above) from a lesser mass of the Left Bank (below). The major monuments of the city are finely drawn and situated at their proper places. Yet their scale, of far greater proportion than that of the map itself, make clear that he city is an assemblage of enduring monumentsâö. And indeed Paris is a tableau of modern punctuated, as with the illustrated monuments, by a long and fascinating history as a center of commerce, education, arts, and culture. Chromolithography is a color lithographic technique developed in the mid-19th century. The process involved using multiple lithographic stones, one for each color, to yield a rich composite effect. Oftentimes, the process would start with a black basecoat upon which subsequent colors were layered. Some chromolithographs used 30 or more separate lithographic stones to achieve the desired effect. Chromolithograph color could also be effectively blended for even more dramatic effects. The process became extremely popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when it emerged as the dominate method of color printing. Publication History and Census. Issued in various forms from about 1867 to 1950, his map has along and interesting publication history that has received little attention from map historians and other scholars âÃì mostly likely because of the profound difficulty in assessing the date of the individual maps, none of which are dated, and the multitude of variants issued by numerous firms. Having dealt with many versions of this map, we believe we may have pieced together a tentative history. This map is based upon an 1867 map engraved by Hilaire Guesnu and published by Auguste Logerot for the Exposition Universelle of that year. That map is distinctive for introducing various iconic elements that would remain with the series well into the 20th century âÃì namely the same-field bird’s-eye view perspective, monuments rendered in profile, general coverage, and more, but is printed using a steel plate process. The map appears to have been subsequently adapted by F. Dufour, Eugâ®ne Dufrenoy, and Garnier Frâ®res using a more modern chromolithograph process and issued sometime prior to the 1878 Exposition Universelle , and is notable for having a blank Champs de Mars. It was again issued by Dufour and Garnier for the 1878 Exposition Universelle with updates around the Champs de Mars referencing the event. Another Garnier edition was prepared for the 1889 Exposition Universelle , in which the Eiffel Tower is added to the Champs de Mars (present example). Around 1900 various other firms began copying the Garnier / Dufour model, including Leconte, Guilmin, Robelin, Hachette, and others. These editions also did away with some of the map’s iconic qualities, including the bird-eye view aspect to the surrounding countryside. Size: Printed area measures 20 inches high by 27 inches wide. Minor damage where originally attached to boards. Laid down on archival tissue. 1 – 10 days. If your address is a P. Duty varies by country and we cannot predict the amount you will be charged.

1945 Kalihan and White Pictorial WWII Route Map of the 79th Inf. In France

1945 Kalihan and White Pictorial WWII Route Map of the 79th Inf. WE SELL ONLY ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAPS – NOT REPRODUCTIONS. Title: To Belgium and Back with the 79th Infantry Division 31 Aug to 25 Oct, 1944. Description: This is a 1945 Steve Kalihan and Harry D. White pictorial map of the 79th Infantry Division’s route through eastern France from north of Paris near the Oise River to the Parroy Forest. The second in a series of four maps depicting the division’s advance through Europe after the Allied invasion, this map follows the division’s movements from August 31 until October 25, 1944, when the division was pulled off the combat line for rest and training. Solid black arrows trace the division’s progress, with red lettering indicating the date (or dates) spent in a specific location. A Look at the 79th Division’s Advance. Text along the left border states that, following the division’s successful breakout from the Seine bridgehead near Mantes Gassicourt, it began a’record-breaking’ advance toward the Franco-Belgian border, which, per the map, was deemed’one of the fasted opposed advances of comparable distance by an infantry division in wartime’. The divisions momentum was slowed, however, upon reaching St. Amand, on the Belgian border, where they encountered stiff resistance. They then turned south, through Valenciennes, Reims, and Neufchateau, until they again encountered fierce resistance at Charmes, where they fought street by street. Here they managed to secure yet another bridgehead, this time across the Moselle River, that allowed the Allied advance to continue east. They then proceeded to the Parroy Forest, where they fought one last intense engagement before being pulled off the line on October 24. Numerous cities, towns, and villages are labeled throughout, allowing the viewer to orient themselves to what part of France the 79th Division is liberating, some of which would have been familiar to World War I veterans, like Verdun. Several rivers, including the Oise, Aisne, Somme, Meuse, and Marne are labeled The Reims Cathedral is beautifully illustrated, adding a different dimension to the reality of the speedy advance through the French countryside. A column of American troops, complete with howitzers and tanks, is illustrated in the upper left corner, chasing German troops into Belgium, while along the drive to Charmes, a supply dump is included. Soldiers are drawn sprinting between several different trucks, trying to grab everything needed by their units. The fierce fighting in the Parroy Forest is shown along the right border. Trees are snapped in two, some soldiers are hiding behind still standing trees, and the two men in the foreground, in their foxhole, are operating a mortar, with spent shell casing strewn around their position. The whole is surrounded by the names of the towns through which the 79th traveled, among these are Valenciennes, Cambrai, Soissons, Reims, Charmes, and Luneville. This map was created by Steve Kalihan and Harry D. White and printed by Fritz Busche Druckereiges M. In Germany in 1945. Size: Printed area measures 26 inches high by 33 inches wide. Closed margin tears professionally repaired on verso. Closed tears extending 1.5 inches from right margin and 1 inch from left margin into printed area professionally repaired on verso. 1 – 10 days.
