An attractive antique map of Europe by Frederick De Wit. Beautifully engraved in De Wit's and the latter Seventeenth century Dutch style.. This detailed map has a decorated title piece featuring the figure of "Europa" sitting side-saddle on a content looking bull, together with a compass rose.As often with Dutch maps of this period there has been some oxidation, commensurate with age. Using the camera flash does show the centre fold, which is not as visible in normal light.
I have included several images, which I believe give a clear indication of the condition. The map was professionally framed by Conzen Rahmen, Dusseldorf and as you can see is complete and unopened. International Buyers, please note, I can only send the map unframed.
Measurement of the map within the mount is 58 cm x 50 cm. Frame measurement is 84 cm x 75 cm. Overall a very nice map in good condition. Please feel free to ask any questions. Thanks for your interest, Amanda.
