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.

Printed area measures c. 5 1/2"H x 4"W.
