Note: 
A very early Air France maps made by Boucher, his first being in 1934. Date estimated, based on the Air France routes being extended further in Africa than our 1937 Air France map (8571.000). The print numbers are the same as the 1937 edition, probably indicating that the air routes were updated even in the middle of an edition. Shows the beginning routes of the airline, extending west to the Americas and east to Vietnam.
