Antique hand colored map of Europe by John Speed, 1626. This highly collectible map of Europe is colored by country with cities labeled and colored red. It features a decorative border with the major cities of Europe depicted along the top and the clothing styles of various peoples, for men or women, along the sides. The cities at the top are London, Paris, Rome, Constantinople, Venice, Prague, Amsterdam, and Lisbone. Ships and monsters traverse the ocean and Mediterranean Sea. This map has been archivally restored- cleaned, deacidified, and backed with a light-weight tissue for added strength. It is in very good condition with some staining along the paper edges, possibly due to an acidic mat that was once around the map. The cities of Amsterdam and Lisbon in the views in the top border seem to have some slight image loss. Approx. 15.5 x 20.25 inches to the outer border lines.
