Beschrijving

Antique map titled 'Dépt. de la Creuse'. Map of the French department of Creuse, France. This region is well known for its apple cider made from Limousin apples and its internationally renowned Limousine beef. The whole is surrounded by elaborate decorative engravings designed to illustrate both the natural beauty and trade richness of the land. There is a short textual history of the regions depicted on both the left and right sides of the map. This map originates from ‘Atlas National de la France Illustré’ by V. Levasseur. Published by A. Combette, Paris, 1854.

Victor Jules Levasseur (1795–1862) was a French cartographer widely known for his distinctive decorative style. He produced numerous maps more admired for the artistic content of the scenes and data surrounding the map than for the detail of the map
