Jaillot Sanson 1692 Large Antique Map of France Spain and Provinces. Wow, what a great old map of parts of Europe for your collection or decorating needs. I have not found another map like it for sale on the internet at this time. This map and other items in the portfolio appears to have once belonged to a New York doctor named G. Kleefeid appears to have originally been Belgian and traveled there quite frequently. His address back in the 1970s was 115 Central Park West in New York City, right alongside Central Park, so seemed to have done quite well for himself and would explain why such fine pieces were all found together. This is a very large map for that period which explains the taping along the middle as the image was too large for the presses that were being utilized. The map appears to be appropriate for that period. It looks very similar to other pieces I have seen in galleries and shops over the years. The impression of the print is around the whole perimeter. The paper looks appropriate for what used at that time. Nicholas Sanson the famous Paris, France cartographer would have drawn the original map and then Alexis Hubert Jaillot whom had access to his plates through Sanson’s son redrew them in a much larger scale and then republished them. Old man Jaillot was considered one of the best map makers of his time and his pieces are highly sought after. You can also see the impression of the large lettering for the provinces coming thru on the back side of the map. The taping that was done to put the two large pieces of the map together appear to be original to the map. The map printing technique was call hand colored copperplate. The map shows some wear along the edges, but seems to be in very good shape if this piece is actually over 320 years old. Appears not to have ever been framed as no discoloration around the edges is showing. The map has the year 1692 noted at the top and then the year 1696 in the seal/legend piece at the bottom center of the map. The map is 25″ across, by 38″ tall when unfolded. Make sure that this map meets your needs and requirements before deciding to acquire it. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
