L’EMPIRE D’ALLEMAGNE Divise en ses dix Cercles.
Map of Germany showing the different provinces – ‘cercles’ as the map refers to them, with a list of the emperors at lower left and title cartouche at upper right. In the early eighteenth century, French cartography overtook the Dutch in terms of accuracy and design. Chiquet’s delightful Nouveau et Curieux Atlas was typical product of the time.
