Petite Tartarie.

(Europe, Ukraine, Russian Empire, Black Sea, Crimea, Sea of Azov, Georgia).

Issued 1685, Paris/ Frankfurt for A.M. Mallet by Zunner.

Charming 17th century copper engraved map with lovely hand color. Decorative cartouche greatly enhances visual appeal.

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. Blank on reverse.

Sheet measures c. 7 7/8" H x 5 7/8" W.

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