$75.00

Africa

(Africa)

Issued 1810, London- anonymous

 With one of the most prominent and distinctive mythical Mountains of the Moon range seen on maps of the continent. A fascinating assortment of interior details makes this an ideal map for contemplation and comparison with others of the era.

Charming and uncommon original early 19th century engraved antique map with lovely hand color.

As originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint.

Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the zoomable scan.

The paper sheet could show various minor signs of age, but if we are offering it for sale, you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.

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 fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.

Great old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.

A cartographic depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.

Sheet measures c.  11 5/8" H x  9 3/4" W.

Printed area measures c. 10 3/8" H x  8 1/2" W

A picture is worth a thousand words. The scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine it closely, as what you see is what we will send you.

[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
