Fer, Nicolas de
Plan de la Fameuse et Nouvelle Ville de Mexique
[Paris]. Very Good. 1715. Map. Lovely engraved map depicting Mexico City in the early 18th century. Map is on a 10 ¾" x 15 ¾" sheet that was taken from Nicolas de Fer's "L'Atlas Curieux" of 1715; no content on verso. Date of map was printed in upper margin along with the sheet number "125" and title. Hand-coloring is still bright. Map has very light toning to edges but is otherwise clean. This detailed map depicts Mexico City when it was surrounded by water and was linked to the mainland by the famous causeways originally desigend by the Aztecs. Also pictured are aqueducts and farms, and about 50 locations have been numbered on the map but the key is not present, likely printed on another page in the Atlas. A beautiful map. .
