THREE LARGE COLOR PLATES - NEGROS NOVOS, RIO-JANEIRO, CAPITAO DO MATTO
THREE LARGE FOLIO PLATES based on Original 17th or early 18th Century Engravings. These Reprints were probably printed in the late 1800s to the early 1900s.
The engravings measure 15x21.5 inches, including margins.
They all appear disbound from the same, large folio book, but I do not know which book. My guess would be a German edition. All the plates appear to have been printed in the late 1800s to the early 1900s, and most appear to be facsimiles of engravings from the 1600s and 1700s.
The plates have stamped information just below the images: "Ch. Milsan Sculp." and "Aubriet del Paris 1763", but I believe that information is incorrect.
Condition: The images all have soiling, some spotting, and are creased, chipped and worn at the edges and margins; some have edge tears, some have marks, all have general signs of age. Nonetheless, a wonderful group of 3 large engraved plates, with scenes that are quite lovely. Would look great framed.
Please Note: These Plates will be Shipped ROLLED IN A MAILING TUBE.
