High-quality hand-printed reproduction of an antique map of New England, New York, and Pennsylvania originally by Jacques Nicolas Bellin, c. 1757. Includes topographical detail and illustrations of houses across the landscape, as well as a decorated cartouche. Made using a combination of modern technology and traditional methods, wherein an original is scanned, its likeness is digitally etched onto an engraving plate, then the plate is used to print the image in the traditional way, with a printing press. The map is then mounted onto linen cloth. This map consists of two sheets that measure approx. 16" x 11.25" each with about 1/8 inch of linen visible between them. Total overall dimensions are approx. 16" x 22.75" to the paper edges. There is approximately 1" of linen margin beyond the paper that can be folded under when the map is framed, if desired. For other reproductions made in this method, please see the left side bar category "Digitally Engraved Specialty Reproductions".
