Here is a great Antique Map of the English Island Domains in the Americas for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
This is a beautiful antique map engraving. Hand colored and done quite well. The map was originally done in 1655. Appears the various islands were done by different cartographers. We see Homanno and Viis & Co on two of the island renderings. The map captures the Island holdings of England then in the America's Caribbean which was Barbados, Jamaica, St Christopher and St. Kitts, Antigua and Bermuda.
Some very minor foxing or 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 map is framed in such a way that the entire map is showing thru the piece. Some crinkling of the map in the top left corner and the middle top.
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 a tan colored cloth matting. The backing is intact on the frame to keep dust and dirt off of the engraving. The piece was professionally framed and matted by Sessler's Bookshop in Philadelphia, PA which unfortunately has been gone for many years now. The frame wire hanger is still in place. The glass over the map is intact, no cracking or blistering.
The Framed Antique Map of the English Island Domains in the Americas is 28.5" tall, by 31" across, by 1" wide. The map showing within the matting is 20-1/8" tall by 23-1/8" across.
