 French voyages of discovery from the 15th through the 19th century

from Gallica BNF

This is a 1930 L. Bergelin pictorial map of the world celebrating French voyages of discovery from 1402 to 1840.
This map appeared at the end of the Années folles , a post-World War I period of rich social, artistic, and cultural innovation centered in Paris.
It coincided with a resurgence of French national pride, much of which was expressed in novel new forms of art that combined advances in printing, the rise of propaganda imagery, and egalitarian social values.
