Description:

Detailed town plan of Paris eight years prior to the French Revolution. The city&#8217s narrow streets contributed greatly to the success of the Revolution, allowing revolutionaries to barricade the streets and reducing the army&#8217s advantage. The later Haussmann plan for the city included wide boulevards which were built, in part, to improve the mobility of the army, making it easier to suppress uprisings. Various points of interest are referenced as its name suggests, the Champs-�lys�e is shown as a field rather than a road the Bastille prison is shown and Place de la Concorde, where Louis XVI, Marie-Antoinette and numerous other notables would later be guillotined is named after Louis XV.
