Here is a great Antique Map of the Isle of Man by Durham & Speed for your buying consideration. Still researching to see if this is a rare Roger Rea version of this map which would have been done in 1665. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself!
This beautiful antique map engraving. The map was originally done in 1595 by Thomas Durham and updated by John Speed in 1610 as the cartographers.
The map captures the Isle of Man, a Island that four countries claim as their own. The four mythological beasts in the map with riders on their backs represent those countries.
Some minor foxing or brown spotting. The map was once folded down the middle. We see no rips, tears or repairs to the engraving. All the map is there. Edges have some wear. The frame conceals some of the side borders.
Not sure what version of this map this one actually is. Any help with that would be much appreciated. Thanks.
The engraving was professionally mounted in a gold colored wood frame with matting. The backing is intact on the frame to keep dust and dirt off of the engraving. The frame is hung by two hooks at the top, there was never a hanging wire. The glass over the map is intact, no cracking or blistering.
The Framed Antique Map is 24-5/8" tall, by 28.5" across, by 1.5" wide. The map showing within the matting is 15-3/8" tall by 19.75" across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
