Published in the 'Novus Atlas Sinensis', the first Western atlas of China, compiled from the maps by Martino Martini, a Jesuit missionary who travelled through China 1643-1650. This map is framed and appears to be in very good condition with some mild foxing and some waviness to the antique paper. Original color- a few areas of green coloring has degraded the paper and caused separation (see photos). Map measures approx. 15.5 x 19 inches to the neatline. Total dimensions including the frame are approx. 24 x 26.5 inches. For framed items, in store pick up is best, but this can be shipped at an additional cost.

If you would like to know what that charge will be, please contact us.**
