Original 1683 copper-engraved map.
This is the rare latest edition of Janssonius (without the usual text on verso...) published in 1683 in its extremely rare and amazing Atlas: "Atlas Novus Sive Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, In Quo........"
Beautiful map published in Amsterdam, with contemporary colouring, very large margins and very rich in details.
The map is in quite good condition, as per photos, with small signs of ageing, small irrelevant cuts or holes at the edges, small spots or rings at the edges which ,however, do not affect the engraved area
Map overall dimensions: 52x62 cm
