Curiously the map was printed in Germany but containing French text; it was thus made for the French market. Published by Johannes Walch (1757-1824), cartographer and map publisher of Augsburg, son-in-law of Johann Martin Will to whom he succeeded in 1806.
Condition : Very minor discolouration of paper. Good and dark impression.
