Eighth plan of Paris divided into its 20 quarters. By N de Fer, Geographer to his Catholic Majesty [Louis XIV], and Monseigneur le Dauphin. From Nicolas Delamare’s "La Traité de la PoliceQuarters".
Delamare achieved fame with his Traité de la Police, published in four volumes between 1705 and 1738. From his rigorous exploration of the Paris archives, Delamare's monumental work – comprising over seven hundred folios decorated with intricate illustrations, maps and detailed annotations – set out every ordinance, arrêt and regulation concerning the police and public order of the city from Antiquity up until Delamare’s present (eighteenth-century) day.
