Note
  • Scale statement on map reads: "Echelle en Kilomètres (1/40.000)."
  • Relief shown by hachures
  • Shows: international boundaries, roads, glaciers
  • Lithographical reproduction by Yves et Barret, probably printed sometime between 1873 and 1876, of Mieulet's map, originally engraved by Erhard Schieble, and issued by the Ministre de la guerre in 1865. London mapmaker and mapseller Edward Stanford, 55, Charing Cross, issued it as part of "Stanford's series of new library maps."
  • Probable range of production dates based on dates of operation of printer (operating as Imprimerie V[euv]e Éthiou-Pérou between 1873 and 1876) and publisher/mapseller (Sanfords moved to larger quarters at 55 Charing Cross in 1873)
  • Dissected into 18 segments and mounted on linen; folds into brown cloth boards, having advertisements for "Stanford's Series of New Library Maps" printed on yellow paper mounted inside front cover, and on last fold; printed book label of Edward Stanford, Wholesale & Retail Mapseller, &c. 55, Charing Cross, London on upper board with title "Mont Blanc Group."
  • See Edward Whymper, "On alpine maps," Nature (July 11, 1872): 203-205 for historical background on the production of Mieulet's map, following France's annexation of Savoy
