Moscovie.

(Old Prints, Mallet Prints, Europe, Russian Empire, Muscovy, Novgorod, Moscow, Archangelsk, Astrakhan, Ukraine, Crimea).

Issued 1686, Paris, for A.M. Mallet. 

Charming 17th century copper engraved map 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.
