Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map

1655

Maker: Blaeu.

Antique hand colored map of part of China, by Blaeu, 1655. Shows the province Xensi, including the Great Wall. In the lower left is a key for cities and villages, rivers, lakes, fortresses, etc. Decorative distance key includes an illustration of a scholar with an armillary sphere. Published in the 'Novus Atlas Sinensis', the first Western atlas of China, compiled from the maps by Martino Martini, a Jesuit missionary who travelled through China 1643-1650. This map is framed and appears to be in very good condition with some mild foxing and some waviness to the antique paper. Original color- a few areas of green coloring has turned brown and some of that same coloring has degraded the paper and caused separation (see photos). Map measures approx. 15.5 x 19 inches to the neatline. Total dimensions including the frame are approx. 24 x 26.5 inches. For framed items, in store pick up is best, but this can be shipped at an additional cost. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing without the frame (price will not be affected). **NOTE- because this map requires extra insurance for shipping, an additional charge will appear on your card after your original purchase. If you would like to know what that charge will be, please contact us.**
