Suede.

(Old Prints, Mallet Prints, Europe, Scandinavia, Kingdom of Sweden, Baltic Sea, Gulf of Bothnia).

Issued 1685, Paris, for A.M. Mallet. 

Charming 17th century copper engraved miniature map with lovely hand color.

Pictorial scroll and banner cartouche at bottom right adds a nice visual appeal to the map.

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.
