Description:This beautifully hand coloured original antique Atlas Title Page published by Jan Jansson for the in the 1653 Spanish edition of Jansson's German/Netherlands Atlas.
This is one of the mot beautiful title pages I have seen. The engraving is fine and paper sturdy and clean but it is the hand colouring that is the most stunning. It has obviously been applied by someone with an eye for detail and colour application. (Ref Tooley M&B)
