Mallet Charming and pleasing early 18th century copper engraved map. With very pleasing full hand color. Note the profusion of interior topographical details, including mountain ranges & rivers which are almost certainly speculative or imaginary to this cartographic engraver.The image has a near folk-art feel, a style of cartographic image quite unique to this time in history. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this very reason.Also, the small size lends a feeling of intimacy, like a small near miniature jewel.Print paper and engraved area remains well preserved. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling which is visible within the scan, nothing offensive or severe, overall remains clean and nice. 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 minor thin creases or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value.
