Leyden Leiden Holland Netherlands 1881 detailed old city plan map NederlandBrian DiMambro -Historical Investments
(Leiden- Holland- Netherlands- nederland- city plan)
Issued 1881, Leipzig by Wagner & Debes
Charming 19th century color lithographed city plan, note worthy for the tiny minute scale of the map which is splendidly engraved and printed. 28 specific locations are located within the plan, including numerous hotels, theatres, churches, museums, etc. City coat of arms is at top left corner above the key.
This 1881 version is a bit elusive, capturing the city prior to the turn of the century.
As originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint. The paper sheet could show various minor signs of age, but if we are offering it for sale, you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.
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. 6 1/4" H x 8 1/4" W.
