Brescia Italy c.1876 antique engraved city planBrian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
Issued c.1876, London (?- unknown source)
Fine original antique woodcut city plan.
Printed on period 19th century paper as issued which has been mounted long ago onto thicker backing that retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In near VG or better condition, minor light surface age wear and age toning as typical as well as some faint show-through from text printed on the verso, but overall the map is clean and attractive [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting and likely very uncommon antique map.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
Sheet measures c. 7" W x 4 5/8" H.
Engraved area measures c. 4 5/8" W x 3 1/2" H.
