TITLE/CONTENT OF MAP: 'France in departments'

This curious map shows France with some of the territories acquired during the First French Empire - although France's borders had retreated to closer to the country's current borders after the defeat of Napoleon in 1815, a quarter of a century earlier.

The map includes the following departements which are no longer part of modern-day France, or whose names have since changed: parts of modern day Italy: Liguria (corresponding closely to the modern Italian province), Tanaro, Parma, Erida (part of the modern province of Piedmont); Batavia (corresponding to the southern part of the present-day Netherlands); annexed from the Austrian Netherlands (part of present day Belgium): Dyle, Escaut (Scheld) , Forêts , Jemmapes, Lys (Lis), Ourte , Sambre-et-Meuse; Annexed from the Cisrhenian Republic (part of present day Germany): Mont-Tonnerre, Rhin-et-Moselle , Roer , Sarre; Annexed from the Holy Roman Empire: Deux-Nèthes (part of present day Belgium), Meuse-Inférieure (part of the present day Netherlands); Annexed from the Kingdom of Sardinia: Léman (roughly corresponding to the present day French departement of Haute Savoie), Mont-Blanc (roughly corresponding to the present day French departement of Savoie); Annexed from the Subalpine & Ligurian Republics: Stura (part of present day Italy), Doire (parts of the present day Italian provinces of Aosta and Piedmont), Marengo (parts of the present day Italian provinces of Lombardy and Piedmont)
