Low Countries Holland Belgium w/ France 1719 old Mallet map pair hand colorBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian
(Netherlands & France together on a single map)
Issued Frankfort, Germany, 1719 for A.M. Mallet.
Charming early 18th century copper engraved map, 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. 6" x 7 5/8".
Printed area measures c. 4" x 5 3/4".
