FIRST EDITION of Turgot's Monumental Joined View of Paris, stretching to over 10 Feet.  - This expansive engraved view of Paris covers the first eleven arrondissements of modern Paris. With a combined width of over ten feet, this archivally joined plan makes for an arresting centerpiece.

It is widely regarded as one of the most important city views of all time.
