This map came from a set of six Blaeu atlases that I split back in the early 1970’s. Up until now it has been in a frame. On unframing it I found the picture framed had the good sense to fold over a small amount of the margin edges instead of trimming the borders down so as to square it up.

Picardy

Picardie (English: Picardy) is one of the 26 régions of France. It is located in the northern part of France. The modern région of Picardie is larger than the historical province of Picardy. The south of the Aisne département and most of the Oise département were historically part of the province of Île-de-France, while the Somme département and the north of the Aisne département were the province of Picardy proper.
