Issued 1719, Frankfurt, for A.M. Mallet.
Charming 18th century copper engraved map with lovely hand color.
The map 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.

Printed area measures c. 5 1/2" H x 4" W.
