Item:312403385795North Africa map by Philipp Cluver (1580-1622). Other spellings of last name include Cluverio and Cluverius. Many of his maps were engraved by Peter Bertius. Given the pencil date of 1738 found on the lower margin, this is explained by the map being a later printing. One reference refers to an 18th century atlas publication as containing this map. I recently found this piece in a mailing tube from a purchase I made many years ago. I am now down sizing. The paper size is 10 1/4" x 13 3/4". It could be tube rolled again for international shipping. Flat shipping in the US by priority mail would be $12.00. International tube shipping $40.00. Sorry for high cost of international shipping but the US post office is losing much money and keeps raising rates. Illinois buyers liable for 10.00% sales tax.Condition:Map had been rolled for many years until recently and still retains a slight curl when removed from current sleeve.. Paper and coloring still good. No stains or abrasions. A few minor margin nicks easily covered by a mat. A fold showing about one third of the way from bottom edge. No separation of paper in the fold. The hand coloring would appear to be more recent than the printing., Cartographer/Publisher:Philipp Cluver, Printing Technique:Copper Plate, Original/Reproduction:Antique Original, Format:Atlas Map, Type:World Atlas, Year:1738, City:North Africa, Date Range:1600-1699, Country/Region:North Africa and Mediterranen
