Suede et Norwege
(Sweden & Norway- Scandinavia)
Issued Paris, c.1834 by Perrot. Engraved by Pierre Tardieu.
Uncommon and charming little mid-19th century antique map. Almost primitive looking, engraved with original inexpert outline hand color utterly unique to the era and method of hand production.
Noteworthy for the scarcity factor, from a pocket sized atlas which had a small circulation and is therefore rarely encountered as a loose map today.
Sheet displays small minor signs of age, light evidence of some handling, but overall still clean and well preserved.
A scarce little antique map with fine patina and historical cartographic appeal.
Sheet measures c. 10 1/2" W x 7" H.
Printed area measures c. 7 1/4" W x 5 1/2" H.
