(Old Prints, Mallet Prints, 18th Century Prints, Armillary Sphere, Planetary Climate Zones, Arctic Circle, Equator, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn).

Issued 1719, Frankfurt, for A.M. Mallet. 

Charming 18th century copper engraved armillary sphere 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.
