PRICE, Charles & Senex, John. [Uncommon two-sheet map of France]
France Corrected from the Observations communicated to the Royal Academy of Sciences at Paris. London: Charles Price, John Senex & John Maxwell, c.1711. Original outline colour. Two sheets conjoined, total 660 x 960mm. Some restoration, as usual with these large maps.
An early example of this large map of France, drawn by Price and engraved by Senex. Their partnership did not last later than 1711, after which Senex issued many of their maps in his 'English Atlas' from 1714. The decorative title cartouche freatures a portrait of Louis XIV, surrounded by allegorical figures. Around the coastline of both France and the south of England are lines marking the "sea coast according to Sanson & the Dutch Maps": this is an unusual example of one cartographer highlighting the mistakes of others.
