Races & plants of the world 1868 Callewaert antique color map w/ animal graphics
DIVISION PHYSIQUE DU GLOBE
(World plants / races / etc.)
Issued Brussels, Belgium, 1868 by Callewaert.
Fine original antique engraved map, made approximately 150 years ago. Printed in the mid 19th century, on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness. Nicely detailed, with original hand color and a series of engraved animal graphics around the map's border.
At bottom right are shown 5 ethnic races.
In near VG or better condition, some light to moderate toning and scatered spotting [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 map.
Sheet measures c. 14 3/4" W x 11 1/4" H.
Printed area measures c. 11 1/2" W x 8" H.
Folio. Original fold line as issued.
Any defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
[note: All old sheets of printed paper possibly have short edge splits. Each sheet has existed for a very long time and has probably been handled repeatedly in the course of it's existence. It has a history unique to it as an object. Most of the time any edge splits are short, minor, insignificant and have been closed- either long ago or more recently with small pieces of archival tape. Most often these splits are trivial and easy to overlook visually. Basically, they would not significantly affect the piece adversely.]
The item is offered as seen.
Please look carefully and make your decision knowing this antique image is nice, but it is not in perfect "like new" condition. However, with whatever flaws it possesses, it remains entirely worthy of ownership and inclusion in any related collection. We feel it will prove very pleasing to its new owner.
Everything we offer is guaranteed to be an authentic original antique item as described.
