"Atlas Minor Sive totius Orbis Terrarum", Visscher, Nicolas
Subject: Title Page
Period: 1682 (circa)
Color: Black & White
12.2 x 20.5 inches
31 x 52.1 cm
A very unusual title page in that it is printed in a sepia ink. It is a beautifully engraved scene of two women drawing maps with a lion curled at their feet, Neptune astride a large globe (showing the Atlantic Ocean), a trumpeting angel, and Atlas bearing the earth on his shoulders.
Small oil stain on lion's face, else very good.
