1720 Guillaume De L'Isle Early 18th Century Engraved Map of Western Hemisphere
This map is a true piece of history. I know there is a Naval commander out there that would love to hang this in their office.
All involved from engraver to printer are famous for their work. The map itself is in good condition but definitely needs restoration and preservation. New frame and matting will do wonders!!!
Hand-colored engraving on paper
