Welcome to The Old Map Shop!
This rare 1683 Manesson Mallet Antique Map Australia, New Guinea, Queensland, Cape York Peninsula "Nouvelle Guinee et Carpentarie" Print is from Mallet's "Description de L'Univers." 1st edition published is 1683. The map has been hand coloured with watercolour paints I would say sometime in the last 20 years by a dealer. Looks quite authentic although having said that these Mallet maps were never coloured at date of publication.
DATE PRINTED: 1683 so is 334+ years old. This was printed from a copper engraved plate on handmade paper.
SIZE: Printed area approx 15.5 x 11 cm's on a page 21 x 13.5 cm's.
CONDITION: Good for its age. As with all old maps/prints there may be minor imperfections. I have shown a very detailed scan so that any marks/creases can be easily seen....Please study both scanned images for all details.
The watermark has been digitally added and will not appear on the map/print you receive.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please note that this is a rare antique engraving & was actually printed in 1683. This is not a modern reproduction.
