China middle southern Formosa 1882 scarce small old Dutch color lithographed mapBrian DiMambro -Historical Investments
China- Midden en zuid
(China- middle and southern)
Issued 1882, Amsterdam by G.L. Funke.
Color lithographed; 19th century Netherlands.
Charming and uncommon old Dutch produced late 19th century map. An interesting printing technique
lends the small map a charming visual quality quite unlike most other printed maps of the era. Nice topographical details as well, an attention to detailed accuracy noticable.
Sheet originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage 19th century printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine it closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the zoomable scan.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Great old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A cartographic depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
Original centerfold as issued.
Sheet measures c. 9 1/4 " W x 7 5/8" .
Printed area measures c. 7 3/4" x 6"
