Description:

Extremely rare proof state of Jan Jansson's map of Romania, pre-dating the addition of the putti and decorations around the title box.

The proof state is known in only a few examples and was mentioned by Peter Van der Krogt in the new edition of Koeman, but was not previously recorded.

The map is in fantastic original English color, which is quite distinctive from the color being added to the maps in the Netherlands in the middle of the 17th Century.

 


Condition Description: Fine original color (almost certainly English Color). Narrow margins, left and right sides, with slight loss of neatline at lower right corner.
