Armillary Sphere Tropic of Cancer & Capricorn Arctic Circle 1719 Mallet mapBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
(Armillary Sphere, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn, Artic Circle, Antarctic Circle, Equator).
Issued 1719, Frankfurt, for A.M. Mallet.
Charming 18th century copper engraved print with lovely 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 pleasing age patina.
Sheet measures c. 7 7/8" H x 5 7/8" W.
Printed area measures c. 5 1/2" H x 4" W.
