Adopt for: $1,825

François Des Rues, 1554–circa 1620. Description contenant toutes les singularitez de plus celebres villes et places remarquables du royaume de France… Rouen: Chez Jean Petit, 1611.

This is the second edition of the first tourist guide to France, produced during the reign of Louis XIII. In addition to several maps and little woodcuts of eighteen cities, it contains a helpful place index, to which an earlier owner added a manuscript list of 180 rivers in France. This same owner also provides in the front of the book a handy list of the Kings of France from circa 420 to 1613.
