Description

A finely drawn and nicely detailed map of France by the British cartographic firm of Laurie & Whittle. It shows France with its borders as determined by the Treaty of Amiens which temporarily ended the Napoleonic Wars. This treaty lasted only one year, a year which was the only period of peace in Europe between 1793 and 1815.
