18th c. Hand Colored Map of Artois, France (Wm. De I'Isle-John Senex dated 1710)

This lovely mad is entitled ARTOIS AND THE COUNTRY ADJACENT. I believe the map to have been originally engraved by William de I’Ilse. I think this was Senex’s revision of deI’Ilse’s original work. In addition to this, he was an engraver, astrologer, explorer, geologist and geographer to Queen Anne of Great Britain. He was elected to the fellowship of the Royal Society in London in 1828. This map is 26″ x 20″. It was hand colored at the time of its creation (or shortly thereafter). It is on hand laid paper and has light uniform age toning. Three corners have folds and there are minor tears in the margins no extending into the image. The upper edge has evidence of the map having been bound into an atlas at one time. The item “18th c.
