La Haute Region, Die Obere Luft. Geegent.
(Science, Atmosphere, Mountain height climate, climatic zones).
Issued 1683, Paris, for A.M. Mallet.
Charming 17th century copper engraved print with lovely hand color.
The image has a near folk-art feel, a style unique to this historical era. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this reason.
Mostly clean and well preserved example, the image displays a fine patina.
Sheet measures c. 7 7/8"H x 5 7/8"W.
Printed area measures c. 5 1/2"H x 4"W.
