Notre Dame de Paris.
(Europe, Kingdom of France, Ile de France, Paris, Notre Dame Cathedral, Seine River, Place de Greve).
Issued 1719, Frankfurt, for A.M. Mallet.
Charming 18th century copper engraved view with lovely hand color.
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 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.
