Title: Carte Des Royaumes De Angleterre..
A very rare and large french map of the British Isles with a wealth of detail. Inselin was a prolific engraver and produced maps for several publishers including Nicolas De Fer, cartographer du roi.
This map has seen better days: the condition is fair as the map has been rebacked to stabilise some missing areas in the margins and small parts of the border have been redrawn. It is still very impressive and elegant and it is a large map that would frame well. Please note that the map is rolled and is held flat in the photograph by various objects at the corners.
The defects are reflected in the price as this would be a circa GBP 900 map if in the best condition.
