Antwerp Belgium 1879 antique detailed city plan mapBrian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
(19th Century city plan, Escaut Fleuve, Citadelle, Fort du Nord, Fort Austruweel, Fort Burcht)
Issued 1879, New York, by Harper's
Very detailed original antique printed map. The original paper sheet issued at this time in 1879, not a modern copy or reprint of it.
In Good+ [or better] condition: sheet displays some minor uniform age toning as typical, light scattered spotting or foxing, light edge wear or small minor nicks, any flaws primarily outside of the printed area and of minimal importance to the value or aesthetics (especially at this low price level for an original artifact over 100 years old); overall the map remains clean and attractive. Any defects may hopefully be clearly seen in the images.
If you place any value on your time at all, the time spent trying to locate another example in this condition with this lifetime guarantee of authenticity would almost certainly cost far more than simply purchasing this example here now :-)
Please examine the scan closely as it forms the central part of the description. There is a zoom feature so you can see close up. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].
A fine old map any collector, dealer, or institution would be happy to possess. Perfect item for display purposes or gift giving.
Original centerfold as issued.
Sheet measures c. 7 " H x 8 3/4 " W .
