Des Vents.

(The Winds- weather- sky- clouds- lightning)

Issued Frankfort, Germany, 1719 for A.M. Mallet.

Charming early 18th century copper engraved celestial print, 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. 8"H x 5 7/8"W.

Printed area measures c. 5 1/2"H x 3 3/4"W.
