P. les du Perou

(South America- People of Peru- Ethnic types)


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

Charming early 18th century copper engraved ethnic 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. 5 7/8" x 7 3/4".

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