Description This large, fine, scarce & beautifully hand coloured original antique map of the Liege Region of Belgium - centering on the Meusa River and the cities of Liege, Maastricht, Namur & Tienen - was published by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (1650-1718) in 1691.
Coronelli was one of the finest engravers & cartographers of any era, producing some of the most stunning work ever seen. This is evident in this beautiful map. He was a master craftsman with an eye for detail. You can feel the uncompromising accuracy & passion in his work when you study his maps & globes. (Ref: Shirley; Tooley; M&B)
