Provinciae, Regionis Galliae, Vera Exactissimaq. Descriptio : J.Le Clerc / H.Picart

A decorative, detailed and rare map of Provence. In the Mediterranean, a high-masted ship sends out a rowing boat towards a smaller vessel. The marshlands, salt flats and sandbanks of the Camargue are clearly marked against the stippled sea. Le Clerc was one of the fourth generation of a family of booksellers and printers. Taking refuge in Tours with his family after trouble in Liege, he worked with M. Bouguereau, plates from whose "Theatre" formed the core of his own atlas. Le Clerc died in 1621 or 1622, but his atlas continued to be published after his death, bearing the address of his widow. Some wormholing and a small tear to the lower margin, expertly repaired.
