Copenhagen Denmark 1798 charming birds-eye view old rare printedBrian DiMambro -Historical Investments
View of the City of Copenhagen the Capital of Denmark
Issued 1798, London by The Lady's Magazine
Fine and attractive original old 18th century engraved panoramic birds-eye city view with lovely hand color. Most charming rendering showing ships in the harbor, near primitive folk-art style. A very uncommon view, perfect item as a gift given the unique quality, rarity- it's also highly likely the person will not already own it, even if they collect in this area.
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. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling which is visible within the scan, some minor old binding stitch holes along the middle bottom edge in the blank margin, tiny loss of paper at top left corner scarcely worthy of concern. Paper and image remains overall clean & sound, view will look fantastic displayed.
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 old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A cartographic depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
