1757 edition of Bernard Antoine Jaillot map of the post office of France. Initially created in 1748, the map has undergone a large number of corrections as indicated by the mention at the bottom of the map. The evolution of the maps of the postal network allows to highlight the territorial choices resulting from political or economic imperatives. This network constitutes the first exchange system managed by the French monarchy within the limits of the national territory. The map is dedicated to Antoine-Louis Rouillé, comte de Jouy, (1689 - 1761), French statesman. He was first appointed Secretary of State for the Navy (1749-1754), then French Minister of Foreign Affairs (1754-1757).
