(Novaya Zemlya, Russia- Arctic region).
Issued Frankfort, Germany, 1683 for A.M. Mallet.
Charming late 17th century copper engraved map. Depicts this Arctic island located north of the Ural Mountains with it's coastline still unknown.
The image has a near folk-art feel, a style unique to this time in history. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this reason.
Clean bright nice example, text on reverse as always.
Sheet measures c. 5" x 8".
Printed area measures c. 4 1/2" x 6".
