Gallia Postarum, Postal map France by Homann 1745

Title: Gallia Postarum geographice designate …

Description: Early 18th century antique map of France showing the postal routes and offices throughout the country.

Copperplate engraved map with hand coloring.

The Homanns maps were combined in different atlases, (1712 – 1716) but also colored on request and sold separately.

Mapmakers: Johann Baptist Homann 1663-1724.

Homann's Maior Atlas was first published in 1716 by Johann Homann, the founder of the famous Nuremberg map publishing house.
It quickly became the standard gentleman's library atlas around Europe, particularly in German-speaking areas.
After Johann's death in 1724 his son ran the business until his death in 1730 and then the firm became Homann Heirs, a combination of family and other geographers who pursued the commercial atlas market with considerable success.
