The National Archives of France offers a geneorous sampling from a collection of more than 3000 manuscript maps (62 volumes) of the roads and country side of France made by Charles Daniel Trudaine between 1745 and 1780. Each volume covers one or more parts of France according to the election regions under the Ancien Régime.
Trudaine was the Financial Quartermaster to King Louis XV and one of founders of the famous French school of the Departement of Civil Engineering (L'école des Ponts-et-Chaussées).
The maps themselves are highly detailed and were originally commissioned to plot the royal roads. But they constitute a significant and broad 18th century historical corpus, documenting parks, churches, convents, cemeteries, ruins, castles, waterways and essential geophysical features in the landscape.
I noted in passing that the 'Atlas de Trudaine' is being used as a source landscaping document in the enormous architectural survey [translation] being carried out in France over the next few years by ERHAM ('Équipe de Recherche sur l'Histoire de l'Architecture Moderne') at Centre André Chastel at Sorbonne University. That's in addition of course to its simply being beautiful cartographic artistry. [via Lexilogos]
