La Lorraine et l’ Alsace. Very rare 17th century folio sheet antique map with original outline hand color. Tables running down either side listing where principle locations are to be found within the numbered grid up to 119. Large ornate vignette cartouche top right, tall mirror cartouche with swags, banners and cherub lower left. Printed in the 17th century for a very rare folio atlas, this loose map offered exactly as acquired. In totally poor condition. Dampstained down both sides, at top corners and across bottom, thin strip of newer linen tape neatly applied on back for reinforcing the centerfold. At middle centerfold are found 3 small “pulls”, spots where the map has stuck to the facing paper and pulled the printed area away leaving a white blank spot behind. However, despite the fairly poor physical condition, the map still has a noble character about it and could readily be framed for display or added to a collection because of the tremendous rarity factor alone. Great old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display. A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era. Original fold line as issued. 17 1/8″ H x 23″ W. Printed area measures c. 15 1/2″ H x 20 3/8″ W. A picture is worth a thousand words. The photos are a major part of the item description.
