Africa St. Salvador fort on hill view 1719 old Mallet print hand colorBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
Issued Frankfort, Germany, 1719 for A.M. Mallet.
Charming early 18th century copper engraved view, with pleasing full 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. 6" W x 8 1/8" H.
Printed area measures c. 4 1/4" x 6".
