Description:

Map showing the provinces of P�rigord and the wine-growing region of Bourdelois, around Bordeaux. The P�rigord was one of the main battlegrounds between the French and English in the Hundred Years&#8217 War during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The De L&#8217Isle family of mapmakers were a major influence on eighteenth-century French cartography. Guillaume produced his first map at the age of nine and was elected to the Academie Royale des Sciences at twenty-seven. He later received the high honour of being appointed the Premier Geographe du Roi.
