(Old Prints, Mallet Prints, 18th Century Maps, Europe, France, Brittany, Nantes, Brest, Vannes).
Issued 1719, Frankfurt, for A.M. Mallet.
Charming 18th century copper engraved map with lovely hand color.
The map 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 map 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.
