About This Item

Paris, 1684. . Large double-hemisphere map, 36 x 25 inches (framed: 38 x 26.5 inches). Attractively coloured, decorative cartouche and embellishments. Modest wear at fold, some light marginal stains, an attractive copy. This map has been mounted on cardboard via an unknown process, but there is no evidence of damage. This looks to be Shirley's state 4 of the first plate, with Cordier's name beneath the left hemisphere (Cordier Sculp.) and a date of 1684. The first plate exists in four states, dated 1674, 1679, 1681, and 1684 (this one). An enlarged version of a previous map by Nicolas Sanson, beautiful and striking. Wheat 65, citing the 1684 edition.
