Details

Dept. des Bouches de Rhone' Steel engraving with original outline hand-colouring., 1856, from Levasseur's Atlas National Illustre. The department covers the coastal region to the north surrounding Mareseille. This area of France is known for its variety of wines. The northern sub-region produces red wines from the Syrah grape and white wines from Viognier grapes. The southern sub-region produces an array of red, white and rose wines, often blends of several grapes such as in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. There is a short textual history of the regions depicted on both the left and right sides of the map. Levasseur was an important French engineer, cartographer, and engraver of the mid 19th century. A couple of foxing spots.
