English: Title:Avenio Vulgo Avignon

This plate is from the Atlas Van Loon, which contains two volumes of the French edition of the Willem Blaeu's Atlas Maior, covering France and Switzerland, from 1663.

The drawing of the town is extremely similar to an earlier map in 8 panels dated 1618 in the Bibliothèque national de France (Va 84 Tome 1 H 159061-8). This is not currently available from Gallica. The panels of the 1618 map are reproduced in the book: Girard, Joseph (1958). Évocation du Vieil Avignon. Paris: Les Éditions de Minuit. OCLC 5391399. Girard gives the author as Marco Antonio Gandolfo "mathématicien de Palerme" and of Théodore Hoochstraten, engraver from The Hague (pp. 76-77, 392). A low quality image of the 1618 map is available online on page 10 in the document available here. For more information on the 1618 map see: Breton, Alain (1986) "Prix-fait de la gravure du plan de 1618", Annuaire de la Société des amis du Palais des papes et des monuments d'Avignon, pp. 63-64.
