(Africa- Abyssinia- Red Sea)

Issued Paris, c.1834 by Perrot. Engraved by Pierre Tardieu.

Scarce and charming little mid-19th century antique map. Engraved with original outline hand color. Noteworthy for the scarcity factor, from a small pocket sized atlas which had a small circulation and is rarely encountered today.

Sheet displays small minor signs of age, light evidence of some handling, but overall still clean and well preserved. A scarce little antique map with fine patina and visual appeal.

Sheet measures c. 10 1/2" W x 7" H.

Printed area measures c. 7 1/4" W x 5 1/2" H.
