PLAN DU PARC DE BOULOGNE Levé et Exécuté sous l'Administration de Monsieur le Compte de Montalivet.
n.p. 1836. A early plan of  the park before it's redesign as one of the "bookends" of Paris carried out by Alphand and Haussmann under Napoleon III. In this plan we see the park, long a hunting ground for the king, later an encampment for soldiers, in its state after Napoleon I and some sixteen years before the great transformation undertaken by Napoleon III. The area shown on the map stretches from the Arc de Triomphe/Barrière de l'Étoile in the east to Porte de Boulogne in the northwest; from the Seine, Parc de Bagatelle, Madrid and St. James in the north, to Ranelagh, La Muette and Passy in the south. The Pepinière d'Étude is listed between the Fond Des Princes and Auteuil. The large allées and smaller routes are shown criss-crossing the entire area and there are small figures or text indicating the locations of pavilions, bridges, buildings rond-points and water bodies. A very useful document for anyone studying the origins of the Parisian park system. Folding lithographed map in 18 sections, mounted on linen, 51 x 68 cm; impression, 47.5 x 66 cm. In contemporary linen-backed folding format with impression in 18 sections; dusty, and with some very light foxing, but otherwise in very good condition. .
