About this Item

2 sheets joined (sheet size 21 x 24 7/8 inches; 15 3/8 x 23 3.5/8 inches to the neat line) full margins showing the plate mark. A fine engraved detailed map of Europe, the title within an elaborate and elegant cartouche upper left; original hand color in part (a little toned at the edges) An exceptional map of Europe by Covens and Mortier in a splendid condition. This map was originally made by Nicholas Sanson d’Abbeville (1600-1667), the founder of the French School of Geography, a school that was unprecedented in its attention to precision and scientific detail and discarded much of the decorative embellishments of previous maps as irrelevant. Johannes Covens (1697-1774) and Cornelis Mortier (1699-1783) were the founders of the biggest cartographic publishing company of the eighteenth century. Bookseller Inventory # 72EJD6
