Ah, the finest map ever made of Paris, put together by Georges Peltier in 1950. This is a birds-eye map of Paris, or, as the map states, 'a view of the centre of Paris taken from the air'.
As a result, Paris's beautiful landmarks are rendered fantastically in three dimensions and in great detail. Everything is here, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe...
This map is widely considered to be the best old map of Paris ever made, and it's shown here with a very nice original handcolouring scheme of red and green.
This map is an unusual size - it's very wide - and would make a fantastic statement piece above a sofa, table, mantelpiece or staircase. It looks magnificent at every size and you'll always be able to read the writing on the map. I can print very large versions of this map up to 190 inches (490cm) wide. Get in touch if you're looking for very large maps. Please note that the 24x15 inch map has white edges that will help with framing, or they can be easily snipped off. All other maps, and all framed maps, are just like the listing images.
The model in the listing images is holding the 36x24 inch (90x60cm) version of this map.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your house or street! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain place is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift for someone from Paris or who has the French capital in their heart.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes the map pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. I use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in my frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
