Condition Rating

Striking copper engraved map surrounded in a large picture-frame style border and title cartouche depicting mining. Great coastal detail with numerous notations concerning reports on the interior.
This example is unusual in having the additional separately engraved decorative framework border around the map, the resultant visual effect being particularly striking. The frame border was prepared with a blank centre so that the map could be over-printed on that area.
These separately engraved border frames appear much more uncommon than the standard edition without border frames.
From Le Nouveau Theatre du Monde, ou la Geographie Royale.
