  • Mappe Monde – Buffier – 1760

    Mappe Monde – Buffier – 1760

    An original copper engraved map of the world by cartographer Claude Buffier engraved by Faure published in Paris around 1760.

    Recognised as a simple sketch yet attractive depiction of the known world at the time. Australia is represented in the Dutch form with Western and Northern Australia outlined and a hint of the west coast of the Cape. In the south we see the Southernmost part of Tasmania. The suggestion of the Solomons is far too far east in the Pacific and the map shows California as an island which was the belief for a period in the early 18th century. A large unknown land looms towards the south pole.

    Engraved area 18cm by 14cm all in very good condition, lightly coloured as it should be.

    Price framed in Voyager rare map style $320.00 … beautiful ready to hang … perfect as a gift.

    Interesting understanding of the World by Buffier
