PLACIDE, Le Père. [Early 18th century map of Piemonte showing the source of the Po River]
La Source du Po, et les Passages de France en Piemont. Paris: Charles Amadeus de Berey, 1704. 410 x 500mm.
The first of a series of five maps of the course of the River Po across Italy, engraved by Charles Amadeus de Berey and published by him 1702-5. By coincidence it was published as the French invaded the Duchy of Savoy, part of the War of the Spanish Succession ((1701-14). using the routes and capturing the towns marked on this map, for example Susa, in 1704. The last Savoyard stronghold was Turin (on the right of this map), which the French besieged in 1706 but the arrival of Prince Eugene of Savoy with Austrian troops saved the city. Father Placide was pupil and brother-in-law to Pierre Du Val. He joined the Augustine order, and became Geographer to Louis XIV in 1705.
