I've wanted this map for a long, long time. I've come across reproductions, a few that were miserably glued to board, a version without the colored border or colored Seine, a smaller version of central Paris, and once on Ebay, one half of the map (it sold!).
Oh, there are tears and bits of old tape, but nothing the maestro John at Poster Mountain can't repair. The lovely map, now in two pieces, will be mounted on cotton as a single spectacular image of Paris. I've waited so long to find my precious, but I can hardly wait to see it after a visit to the conservator!
Bird's-eye view of Paris
Circa 1966, a very good year.
B-I-G! Compare to soup can pictured at bottom.
Île de la Cité, elite charm.
