  • Due of major tracks of use during the last centuries the map needed an extensive restauration. It was taken off from the linen, where it was originally mounted on. Due of the oxidations in the old colors, especially in the green colored parts overall skillful paper restorations were necessary. Also larger parts or sections of the map were and are with losses and were therefore carefully redrawn. Overall the map is now in very good condition, the old linen was removed and the nine sheets were joint now on acid free conservation paper. Old oxidations in the colors were stabilized. A beautiful and attractive example of a very rare Dutch wall map of the European continent.

Article description

Copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash when published. Outstanding large wall map of Europe by the famous Dutch cartographer and map publisher Petrus Schenk. The map was printed from nine plates and joint together and then originally mounted on linen. An highly impressive wall map of Europe in original colors as published. With views of Roma, Paris, London, Sevillia. The title is on a banner held aloft by putti with garlands of fruit. One cartouche in the upper right corner "Gedrukt by Pet: Schenk Const en Caart Verkoper Op de Vygendam Tot Amsterdam Met Privilegie". This rare wall map of Europe was printed from nine plates and was hand colored with typical colors of the period when the map was printed and published. Due of the oxidations in the old colors, especially in the green colored parts overall skillful paper restorations were necessary. Also larger parts or sections of the map are with losses and were therefore carefully redrawn. Overall the map is now in very good condition, the old linen was removed and the nine sheets were mounted again on acidfree conservation paper. Old oxidations in the colors were stabilized. A nice and attractive example of a rare Dutch wall map of the European continent. This wall map of Europe is not described or listed in any bibliographies. We were unable to trace a copy in a public collection or library.
