Jeu des Ponts de Paris

(Puzzle of the Paris bridges)

This enticing box shows Gulliver trying to cross every bridge in Paris once only.


 

   

Made by Wattilaux around 1880.

The box contains a beautiful map of Paris mounted on a wooden board with a nail at both ends of every bridge.

There is also a smaller box containing the solution hidden inside an envelope and a cord with a small ring on the end for the would be Gullivers to mark their route.
