A quite scarce and impressive plan of Luxembourg by Covens & Mortier. Based on the plan of Baillieu 1705/10, but with new fortification as mentioned in the key '23. Nouveaus Ouvrages faits depuis 1724'. South on top. Including a key showing 40 place names. Printed on heavy paper with an unusual wide margin. A very rare map, especially in such perfect condition.
Strong and clear impression, perfect conditions.
Pieter und David Mortier were booksellers in Paris and have published a wide range of geographical works. After Pieter's death, his widow continued the business until their son Cornelius took over. Cornelius started a partnership with his brother-in-law Johannes Covens and established the famous publishing house Covens and Mortier in Amsterdam. They have re-issued Atlases of Sanson, de l'Isle, Visscher and de Wit.
