United Provinces Netherlands Holland 1719 Mallet miniature map hand colorBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
(Europe, Low Countries, United Provinces, Netherlands, Holland).
Issued Frankfurt, Germany, 1719 for A.M. Mallet.
Charming early 18th century copper engraved map, with most pleasing full hand color. Very few examples are encountered with such nice detailed hand color.
The image has a near folk-art feel, a style of image quite unique to this time in history. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this very reason.
Clean & well preserved example, superior visually.
Sheet measures c. 5" x 8".
Printed area measures c. 4 1/2" x 6".
