MERIAN, Mattheus. [A fine prospect of Paris in the 17th century]
Parys. Frankfurt, c.1650. Two sheets conjoined as issued, total 275 x 695mm. A very good example with wide margins
A detailed prospect of Paris from the north, with a 56-point key in French. The Hospital St. Louis is in the foreground, the Bastille on the left edge and St. Lazare on the right. Both Notre Dame and the Louvre are clearly visible in the city. Merian is depicted sketching the city: an inscription on the rock to his left states he drew this view from life.

BRAUN, Georg & HOGENBERG, Frans. [Uncommon map of Paris]
Lutetia, vulgari nomine Paris... Amsterdam, Johannes Jansson, 1657. Coloured. 340 x 485mm.
AN early 'map-view' of Paris, with the major buildings shown in profile, with little consideration for perspective. Originally published in the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum', the first series of printed townplans by Braun & Hogenberg in 1572, this example comes from the uncommon 'Townbooks' published by Jansson. There has been no attempt to update the 85-year-old plan, but the three figures dressed in contemporary costume have been removed from the bottom left foreground. KOEMAN: Ja 14.
