Very strongly printed and finely engraved plan-perspective of Thonon-Les-Bains, now in France located on the south bank of Lake Geneva. Displayed, below a magnificent coat of arms supported by putti, is the magnificent Ripaille Palace built around 1434 by Amedee VIII, first Duke of Savoy and future Pope. The town and surroundings are shown in great detail, with each building, garden and the surrounding parkland defined. A lovely example of the output of the Blaeu family - the greatest family of Dutch mapmakers - from their series known now as the "Town Books".
