Antique Engraving, John Harris, Male Portrait, Asia and Africa, Navigantium atque Itinerantium bibliotheca

$60.00

Shipping to United States: $7.50

I recently acquired a vast collection of Antique 18th and 19th Century Book Plates. This one is a Architectural Engraving of Asia and Africa People, Birds and Architecture. Page is Titled "A description of Asia and Africa from St. Tho: Herbert & others", and is from a Book of Travel and Voyages of John Harris, though not positive on that, though the page dimensions are the same as some others acquired.

This page is focused on People, Culture, Birds and Architecture.

I have had a difficult time identifying this page, if you have more knowledge or information, please feel free to share. Though I did find this online:

"This fascinating engraving is from John Harris's "Navigantium atque Itinerantium bibliotheca. Or, a Complete Collection of Voyages and Travels." The maps included in this work were completed by Emanuel Bowen. The work was published in London for T. Osborne in 1764."

This one is in excellent condition, with some very subtle yellowing around the edges. Perfect for framing, or to incorporate into something new and wonderful.

Page has a hand written price in pencil on the front of 60.00 from a previous owner. The back is blank. Please look closely at the photos, as they best show condition. Please look closely at the photos to appreciate all the great details, as well as to best understand overall condition.

Plate measures about 9.5" x 15.25"
