A Superb Example

Pas-kaart Van de Grand Banq By Terra Neuff... . 20 x 23 inches
On double-ply paper as issued; fine hand color; a faint stain, else a fine, bright example.


A beautiful chart of the famed fishing grounds that lured European fishermen since the 15th century. It boasts one of van Keulen's more ambitious cartouches in which cherubs fish with nets. Oriented with north to the right, the engraving shows the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland at the top.
