Ancienne Region des Sines.

(Asia, China, Philippine Islands, Southeast Asia, India, Ganges River, Vietnam).

Issued 1683, Paris, for A.M. Mallet. 

Charming 17th century copper engraved map/print/view 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.
