(Turkey in Europe- Balkans- Greece- Romania)
Issued Frankfort, Germany, 1719 for A.M. Mallet.
Charming early 18th century copper engraved map, with pleasing full 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 fine patina.
Sheet measures c. 6 1/2" x 8 1/8".
Printed area measures c. 4 1/4" x 6".
