[Engraving]. [Topography]. [Lyon]. The powerful and important city of Lion archevesche and metropolitan of the Gauls. A Paris chez Louis Boissevin, 1644 [i.e. ca. 1650]. One engraved copperplate view, ca. 29 x 73.5 cm. (copperplate); margins included 37.5 x 88 cm. (folds, one browned, one with small hole not serious, small ink stains in margins). Very rare engraved panoramic view of the city of Lyon, extracted from the Theatre des citez, atlas published by Jean Boisseau between 1642 and 1648. This copy bears the address of the merchant Louis Boissevin, probably regrafted on the original copperplate; the original date has been retained. When Boisseau ceased his activity, around 1648, Louis Boissevin recovered a part of his fund which he continued to exploit. Legend in the margin under the engraving. Old handwritten title and trace of tab on the reverse. (Pastoureau, Les atlas français, Boisseau I, n° 12, at the address of Boisseau).
