Mappemonde

Steel engraving by Gobert & Kollmann, with original hand colour, published by Dufour, Mulat & Boulanger, Paris, 1856.

Size of sheet: 16 1/4" x 22 1/4"

Very good condition throughout, original vertical folds, as issued. Minor repair to fold on eastern hemisphere. 

A notably spare map: the steel grey of the sea is heightened by the sparsity of the original outline colour on the land masses. The engraved border around the hemispheres is particularly well handed, and the entire composition is enhanced by the elegance of the typically French lettering

 

£150.00 unmounted, unframed. Plus postage and packing, if required.
