(Black Sea- Crimean War region- Circassia-Taurida- Ekaterinoslof- Gulf of Taganrog)
Detailed, unique and very uncommon detailed antique wood engraved map.
Issued 1855-June, London by ILN
Drawn & engraved by John Dower.
A map only found with great patience and searching, not common. Thus, the perfect gift for virtually any person who has an interest in this region. Even if they collect maps or related items, they almost certainly will not own this map.
An actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, once an actual newspaper leaf, not a modern copy or reprint. The sheet could show signs of age difficult to capture digitally, 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.
Image originally appeared within a weekly newspaper, and thus it is today exceedingly scarce. Text on back as issued, the only way to own this image as an original.
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 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.
Attractive and appealing old vintage antique print entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A style and manner of depiction entirely unique to this era.
Sheet measures c. 15 3/4 " H x 10 3/8 " W.
Map measures c. 8 1/2" H x 9 1/4 W.
