Pherote De La Croix was one of several authors whose goeography manuels were published at the end of the seventeenth and beginning of the eighteenth centuries. His 'Nouvele Metode pour apprendre La Geographie Universelle' was not as common as 'Methode pour apprendre geographie' published by Jacques Robbe and which contained a set of world maps by Nicolas De Fer. However one of De Fer's engravers, Charles Inselin, was employed to produce the maps for La Croix's work. This fine map of the region of Lyon, the second city of France and famous for its gastronomy, comes from the 1705 Lyon edition of 'Nouvele Metode...' It shows the region stretching from Bourges in the north and Limoges in the west while Lyon, on the River Rhone, is in the east centre. There are elegant coats of arms on the map as well as a drape title in the top right. We have included a scan of the title page. The map measures 5.5" by 7", has outline hand colouring, several folds (as issued), and is in good condition. The map is guaranteed to be over 300 years old.
