Isle Molucoue.

(Maluku Islands / Southeast Asia / Indonesia).

Issued 1719, Frankfurt, for A.M. Mallet. 

Charming early 18th century copper engraved map with lovely hand color. Numerous tall mast ships, title in a banner across top.

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. 7 3/8"H x 5 1/2"W.

Printed area measures c. 5 1/2"H x 3 7/8"W.
