Physikalische Karte von Afrika

(Physical Map of Africa)

(Taf. 5)

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.

Printed area measures c. 7 7/8" H x 9 7/8" W
