= Excellent map with a fine armorial title-cartouche by M.A. Stagnon after C.N. Cochin II, and a large vignette by C.-E. Patas after C.D.J. Eisen depicting the presentation of the map to emperor Joseph II. Sheet XXI presents a plan of Brussels: "Plan Topographique de la Ville de Bruxelles et de ses environs". The map was first produced in three coloured manuscript copies, each on 275 sheets, between 1771 and 1777 on the scale of 1:11.520. It was inspired by and based on the geometrical method used for the large Carte de France surveyed by C.F. Cassini thirty years earlier. The manuscript maps then led to the publication of an engraved reduction on the scale of 1:86.400 and named Carte Chorographique, or Carte Marchande since this edition was meant for sale. Koeman, Geschiedenis van de Kartografie p.162-164.
- The second map w. false fold; both maps trifle yellowed/ frayed in blank margins.

= Indicates the borders "d'après le Protocole de la Conférence de Londres du 20 Janvier 1831". Having declared Belgium independent in December 1830, the following month the conference redefined the borders of the new state, meaning the loss of Limburg and Luxemburg to King Willem I and the Netherlands. This map is the French edition of "Topographische Kaart der Grensscheiding tusschen het Oud Nederland en de Belgische Provintien (...)", also offered in this auction. Compared to the Dutch version, this French map has more detailed topography along the Meuse river. Cf. Koeman, Geschiedenis p.197 (Dutch edition).
