TOURCATY, Jean Francois.

Carte Gastronomique de la France.
Paris: Imprimerie de Brasseur Aîné, 1809. Coloured. 365 x 450mm.

Repairs to folds and margins.

A map of France illustrated with vignettes depicting the culinary produce of the regions, including cheeses, wines and brandy. The title is on a biscuit being eaten by a man.
