Issued c.1749, Paris by Prevost & Bellin
Fine original antique engraved map.
In Good+ to about VG or better condition, normal minor light age toning to sheet, a slight waviness to the sheet, and some mostly minor foxing, overall the image is very clean and attractive, given its age-- please inspect visual scan closely [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting and somewhat uncommon map.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
