Rare Hubert Jaillot Sanson Antique Map Of Europe L'Europe C. 1696 Paris France

An extremely large hand colored map of Europe, published by Hubert Jaillot circa 1696 in Paris France. First issued in 1674, this two sheet map of Europe provides a highly detailed picture of the continent, based upon the geographical compilations and work of Nicolas Sanson which remained unpublished at the time of his death. Jaillot conceived in 1674 of the re-issue of Sanson’s major work (published and unpublished) in an enlarged format. The maps were issued as early as 1674 and were later jointly issued by Sanson and Mortier in Amsterdam. It is in generally fair condition except for a few small holes, staining, and some creasing / cracking due to its extreme age and size. It measures approximately 35 1/4″ wide by 23 1/2″ high. Although not examined out of the frame; due to its importance as one of the earlier maps of Europe; it would benefit from and surely deserves some conservation.
