Description: Antique map titled 'Verdun'. Orginal antique map of Verdun, a small city in the Meuse department in Grand Est in northeastern France. This map originates from 'Topographia Germaniae' by Merian.

Artists and Engravers: Matthäus Merian was a Swiss-born engraver who worked in Frankfurt for most of his career, where he also ran a publishing house. With Martin Zeiler (1589–1661), a German geographer, and later (circa 1640) with his own son, Matthäus Merian (der Jüngere, i.e. "the Younger" or "Jr.") (1621–1687), he produced a series of Topographia.
