Tartary Russia Central Asia China beautiful 1719 Mallet antique engraved map
Issued Frankfurt, Germany, 1719 by Mallet
Fine original antique engraved print, made approximately 290 years ago. Printed in the early 18th century, on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In Good+ to near VG or better condition, light uniform age toning and small minor spotting as seen [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 image.
Sheet measures c. 6 1/2" W x 8 1/4" H.
Printed area measures c. 3 3/4" W x 5 1/2" H.
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.
