T. Jefferys lot x 4 prints Armillary spheres variant issues cosmographyBrian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
Cartography- Armillary Spheres- Compass Roses.
Issued c. 1756-88, London. Engraved by T. Jefferys and likely anonymous engraver.
Nice lot of four (4) antique 18th century engraved prints. One with nice hand color.
The three armillary spheres engraved by Jeffery's show variations, certainly re-engraved plates, possibly unique or completely redone. The final image upon close inspection appears to be an entirely re-engraved plate of the Jefferys, done by an anonymous engraver.
All are visually attractive, mostly clean and nice condition, any age flaws or condition issues are very minor and easy to forgive or overlook.
Smallest sheet measures c. 8" x 5".
Largest sheet measures c. 8 1/2" x 5 1/8".
