Nr. 703: Carte de la Grece

Excellent copy of an uncommon map

“Carte de la Grece. Dressé sur un Grand nombre de memoires Anciens et Nouveaux.. Par G. de l’Isle.. Geogr. du Roy”; with a separate running title in Latin at top “Accurata Totius Archipelagi et Graeciae Universae Tabula. per R. & J. Ottens Geogr.”. Greece and the western part of Anatolia. Double-page map in original colour after Guillaume Delisle, engraved in copper by P. Mol and issued by Reinier & Josua Ottens, Amsterdam at around 1729 or later. (PM) 50,5 x 61 cm.

Zacharakis 2525 (1633); see also Koeman, Ottens catalogue, map 211. Probably printed from a new plate, which the Ottens brothers commissioned. Our copy is attractively coloured in the early 18th century Dutch style! - A near perfect example in bright original colour with wide margins.
