About This Item

Frankfurt: A.M. Mallet, 1719. The mounts have very slight bumping, but are in good, clean condition. The plates are good impressions, and cleanly mounted. Plate 71 has a slight crease to the right edge, with a "crack" of loss of ink. This would seem to have occurred at the time of printing. Overall in very nice condition. . A pair of copper engravings of the heavens. The first shows Three globes are floating in the sky, an active seaside scene across the bottom including boats, an old coastal village scene, etc. The globes show the Anteciens, the Perieciens and the Antipodes. These are two small to have been of use to a navigator, and were purely decorative. This is numbered plate 49 to the corner. The second, labeled plate 71 shows a pastoral scene, above which there is a disc showing the sun and the astrological symbols. These were issued by A.M. Mallet in 1719, although these would appear to be slightly earlier impressions (without German text overlaid). Both of the engraved plates are held under a mounting boards, with gilt edged window. Unglazed. Size of the engraving is 150 x 105 mm (6 x 4¼ inches). The size of the mount is 280 x 225 mm (11 x 8¾ inches).
