Shows roads, names valleys and of particular interest to a general planning transmontane operations the location of passes (designated "col"). Though bearing Nolin's name and with his dedication to Louis XIV, this map was published in Jaillot's Atlas Nouveau. Surprisingly it seems not to have been included in Nolin's own volumes dealing with the king's many wars and campaigns.

A stunning engraving with insets of Turin, Verceil and Verrve. The cartouche features a bird's-eye view of Chambrey, depicts four important forts, and allegorical figures. Pastoureau, Jaillot I E [94] f. [70].
