    This is a smaller version of Boucher's famous map of the heavens, which he did as part of a series of advertising maps for Air France. Shows the major constellations in two hemispheres, along side a smaller view of earth which shows the major air routes of Air France as it connects to the continents. While wind angels reside in each corner the constellations are detailed and named with a decorative compass rose at the center which includes the companies logo.

    Condition is good with some fading to the color, issued on border, some marginal staining. Image size 14 x 22.5(inches).
