    La France divisée suivant ses Provinces ou Gouvernemens Militaires

    This map of France is coloured by departments, with a table listing different forms of political and ecclesiastical organisational structures from antiquity to the present, and with an inset of Corsica bottom right.

    This is one of the scarcer maps produced by the firm, missing from the standard reference work on the subject (Pedley, Bel et Utile: the Work of the Robert de Vaugondy Family of Mapmakers).
