16 1/2″ x 21″ sight size. 18″ x 22 1/2″ overall. Original map of France on laid (rag) paper. Centered on Cambray and showing Crevecoeur, Bouchain, Castel de Cambresis, Quesnoy, etc. Two coats of arms and two cartouches in the four corners. Dedicated to Francisco Vander Burgh. Fully hand colored coats of arms, with the rest lightly colored. Verso is affixed a letter of authentication from Dr. Dard Hunter of the museum of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, dated May 21, 1953, in which Dr. Hunter surmises the map to be from the Blaeu Novus Atlas of 1676. However, I believe it is probably from the Novus Atlas published around 1640. There is an obvious center crease where it would have been folded in the atlas. Some water stains and age discoloration (visible in the images). Some very mior wrinkling. A FINE EXAMPLE OF AN EXQUISITELY EARLY AND RARE EUROPEAN MAP. SPECIAL NOTE : The map is framed and under glass, and I have not examined it out of the frame.
