Rare wall map with a plan of Paris divided into 12 arrondissements and 48 districts, published under Napoleon in 1811.
The plan shows the first works of embellishment and development of roads in the city ordered by Napoleon, among which include the Pont des Arts, built between 1802 and 1804, the Austerlitz Bridge, between 1799 and 1807, the new Morgue Place du Marché-Neuf (1804 police ordinance) or the Quai d'Orsay.
Some quays were renamed when Napoleon came to power. Thus, the current wharf of Corsica is divided into two parts renamed quai Desaix and quai Napoléon, the current quai Anatole France is called quai Bonaparte, or the street Saint-Louis-en-l'Ile, named rue Blanche de Castille in 1806.
The plan is accompanied by an alphabetical table of streets, bridges, barriers, and 12 town halls.
