Physikalische Karte von Afrika
(Physical Map of Africa)
Issued c.1851, NY & Germany
Engraved by Gest. v. J.L. v. Baehr
Fine original antique engraving printed in the mid-19th century, on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
Clearly shows the fictitious Mountains of the Moon range across the continent.
Beautifully engraved with a rich contrast between light and dark.
In near VG or better condition, some typical age wear but the image remains clean and very presentable [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a fine impression of an iconographic antique image which will look nice when displayed.
Sheet measures c. 9 1/2" H x 11 3/4" W.
Printed area measures c. 7 7/8" H x 9 7/8" W
