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. 7 3/4" H x 6" W.

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