The Beaujolais region is not an official department in France; it actually stretches between two different departments. Originally, Beaujolais was a barony that changed hands several times due to deaths and marriages. Today, the region is, of course, best known for its wine. Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Villages, and Beaujolais nouveau all come from this region of France. The Beaujolais nouveau has become a worldwide celebration, which takes place every year on the third Thursday in November. This map was created by Henri Grisot. Although it is undated, we have learned that the printer, the Imprimerie Gougenheim, closed its doors in 1960, allowing us to date this map with a slightly better degree of certainty.
