INTRODUCTION.

The kingdom of France, once more returned within its ancient liniits, is bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean; on the south, by the Mediterranean and Pyrenees; or the east, by Savoy, Switzerland, and Germany; and on the north, by Belgium, and the English Channel. It extends from about the 42d to near the 51st degree of north latitude; and from about the 7th degree of longitude, west from Paris, to about the 5th on the east : being in length from N. to S. about 600 English miles, or in breadth from W. to E. about 560. Its extent may be computed at 148,840 square miles.
