The very long-running Paris almanac known as the Etrennes Mignonnes was published, with changing subtitles, from 1716 to ca. 1845. The engraved title and frontispiece varied from year to year (up to 1750, after which none were used), and the map alternated between an ecclesiastical, civil, or military map of France, or a map of the Paris region. In this edition, the frontispiece and title are loosely based on those used in the 1741 edition, by Cochin II. Cf. Grand-Carteret 107. Item #2689l
