SOUVENIR DU NOUVEAU BOIS DE BOULOGNE. Plan À Vol D'Oiseau Pour Servir De Guide Dans Ses Promenades Et Aux Environs.
Paris: Logerot, n.d. (ca, 1860). A lively bird's eye view over the Bois de Boulogne stretching from the Arc de Triomphe to the Parc de St. Cloud. The scene is peopled with riders on horseback and in carriages, people walking and boating. Structures in the Jardin d'Acclimation, the Pré Catalan and around the lakes are depicted. The scene can be dated to sometime after 1854 but before 1870. This represents the period when Napoleon III brought to Paris his new taste for the English style of park. Wide-margined lithographed map measuring 50 x 65 cm ; impression at 40 x 52 cm.
Some darkening from dust in upper left corner, mostly in margins. A very good opy.
