Creation: 1530

This 1530 map of Paris depicts key edifices of the French capital and its distinctive topographic features. Printer and cartographer Albert Jouvin Rochefort (c. 1540- c. 1710) included the map in his nine-panel 1672 district map of Paris. Rochefort's map expands on Arnoullet's, particularly in the growing urban center of Paris, where speculators were hoping to build large hotels that the narrow streets of the old city could not accommodate.
