A Plan of the City of Wurtzburg - Antique Map from 1771

Genuine antique
dated:

1771

Description:

This early
town plan is from his A collection of plans of the capital cities of
Europe, and some remarkable cities in Asia, Africa & America: with a
description of their most remarkable buildings, trade, situation,
extent. Andrews’ superbly engraved and embellished series of town plans
are usually found issued uncoloured, this set however has FULL ORIGINAL
HAND COLOURING. We have not been able to locate another set with hand
colouring such as ours, so it’s probable that this set was either
coloured by the publisher from specific request from a purchaser, or the
purchaser had it coloured after publication. RARE
