Genuine Antique Black & White Map


Maker: Kitchin.

Thomas Kitchin's engraved 18th century version of a map of Scandinavia done in woodcut by Sebastian Munster in 1540, for "An Historical and Chronological Deduction of the Origin of Commerce". An inset of text explains that a sea route to Russia around the coast of Lapland, given "to our great Alfred, King of England near the close of the IXth Century" in 887 was completely forgotten by 1540. Map includes the northeast corner of Scotland, Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Baltic Sea, and western Russia. Illustrations show mountains, rivers, castles and fortifications, and five Lapland foxes. Very good antique condition with mild toning and some very minor edge wear. Visible plate mark. Map measures 10.5 x 13.5 inches to the neatline. **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.** **SOLD**
