Antique map titled 'Dépt. des Pyréneés Orles'. Map of the French department of Pyrenees Orientales, France. This area is a well-known wine producing region. A wide variety of wines come out of this 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 map proper 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
