This attractive copperplate engraved map was originally published in Paris as part of an atlas by Alexis-Hubert Jailot in 1692. Dedicated to Louis, Dauphin of France, the image presents the historic region of Franche-Comté divided into its three constituent bailiwicks – d’Amont, de Dole, and d’Aval.
Geographic features like mountains and forested regions are depicted pictorially, emphasizing the mountainous border with Switzerland in the southeast. A fascinating variety of villages, fortified cities, chateaus, and religious facilities are labeled throughout.
