Superb Map of a
Great Wine Region
BLAEU, W. & J. [Amsterdam, 1647]
Territorium Metense. . . .
15 ¼ x 19 ¾ inches.
Fine original color; fine condition.
A mint example in superb original color of this lovely map focusing on the wine region surrounding Metz, in the Moselle region of France. Oriented to the west, it shows the area in great detail – not only cities and geographical features but also bridges, the ancient aqueduct at Ars-sur-Moselle, and the many vineyards surrounding the city.
