First published in the 1950s under the editorship of E.E. Benest and later Konrad Nussbaum, Imray’s map of the French inland waterway system has always been regarded as an essential reference for planning a visit to France by boat. It is now superseded by this edition, completely recompiled by David Edwards-May and redrawn in the style of Euromapping’s other reference maps.
The new cartography includes improved detail and presents essential information concerning distances and dimensions with a greater clarity than on previous editions. The map continues to cover the Low Countries and the western part of Germany and now also includes large scale insets of the Paris region and northeast France. The scale remains at 1:1 500 000
