Issued c.1760, Paris- no imprint
Fine and very uncommon large old color map of northern Great Britain. With original outline hand color and a large ornamental cartouche at top right.
Includes a large portion of the Irish coastline, including Dublin. Nice strong nautical feel due to the rhumb lines and navigational measurements.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The photos are a major part of the item description. Please examine them closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
Map remains well preserved given the huge size but it has been folded for many years and thus there is some wear along the fold-lines, a short tear at bottom centerfold slightly into the map itself. Light overall age spotting, some uniform light toning to paper. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling which is visible within the scan.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Great antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
