Cquitotis for fourteen years in Frovincia: carefully plaited. History, agreed & giving brass. Initials by Theodore de Bry Leod. Estate fresh and in very well preserved antique condition. This early to mid 16th century, European antique hand colored map, was discovered in a destroyed, red lacquered wooden frame in the basement of a fine estate, located just south of Boston, Massachusetts in a well-appointed early antique home.

This and two (2) other large folio early hand colored woodcut maps were carefully removed from the unsalvageable wooden frames, with the old glass being removed and the maps carefully lifted and removed, where they were inspected and gently dusted with a soft red sable artist's brush. This was done painstakingly and extremely carefully, requiring much time and patience. The glass covering the map was absolutely filthy and due to the large quantity of dust and silt covering it, the opaque watercolor paint colors may have as a result, maintained their wonderful, still vivid and nearly saturated quality. The paper margins of the printed woodcut map appear not to have been cut down or tampered with. The map was originally framed to the map's paper margins without matting and sat directly under the pane of glass covering it.

From the well-known and widely celebrated 16th century Fle mi sh engraver, cartographer. And publisher Theodor de Bry. An extraordinary piece with excellent hand colored details.
