Item:383464781761For your consideration is a genuine antique map of the Hudson Bay, Canada and Greenland by Rigobert Bonne. Within the decorative cartouche located in the upper left is the French description "Partie de L'Amerique Septentrionale, qui comprend le Canada, la Louisiane, le Labrador, le Groenland … " Date 1771. Bonne was a leading French cartographer and maritime map publisher in the late 18th century. His maps are typically very detailed and precise. In this example, the topographical detail of the coastline and rivers is amazing. The engraving is also hand colored in places making it even more desirable among collectors. This map is part of history. Bonne published this particular map around the time of the American Revolution. It rarely becomes available on the secondary market. A quality historic map at a reasonable price. This is an authentic Bonne map -- not a recent reproduction. Plate marks can easily be observed at the borders. This antique map was previously framed. The framing greatly preserved the condition. Very clean. No soiling. Colors are strong with little fading. As expected, given its age, some toning. The map is still attached to its French matting (greatly enhancing its value). Some paper loss on the very top border which is hidden by the French mat. Also, a minor tear middle left on the margin which also is hidden by the matt. No handwriting. Considering its age, in fine condition. Paper dimensions are approximately 15.25 inches by 20.5 inches. With the French mat, outer dimensions are 19.50" by 24.50". Given the fragile nature of the paper, I am reluctant to remove the map from the mat and ship in a tube. Accordingly, if you live in the United States and its territories, there will be a $20.00 shipping expense charge as the map will be mailed FLAT due to the matting. Interested international buyers should contact me in advance for a shipping quote estimate. All international purchasers (including Canadians) are solely responsible for all tariffs, taxes and fees. Receipt of payment is expected within five (5) days unless other arrangements have been agreed to. Thank you for considering this item and good luck if you decide to bid on it!Condition:This antique map was previously framed. The framing greatly preserved the condition. Very clean. No soiling.
