Original antique map of St Petersburg, Russia, by John Luffman. 

Guaranteed to be 209 years old, this beautiful copper engraved map was made in 1812. 

From a fascinating series of strongly engraved and coloured plans of "principal cities, harbours, forts in the World," drawn, engraved and published by John Luffman in from 1801. Luffman, who was also a goldsmith, worked in London from about 1776 until 1802; his work contained a wide and unusual selection of detailed plans from all around the world. These plans contain surprising detail, often with a numbered key, and each is precisely engraved and beautifully hand-coloured. Besides the subjects mentioned in the title, Luffman also included maps of some countries, regions, and islands. These are historically of considerable interest - lovely examples of mapmaking in England at the beginning of the C19th, then the centre of the cartographic world.

Beautifully and richly hand-coloured.

Supplied mounted, backed, wrapped and labelled.

Overall size (mounted): 15" x 13", plate size (image): 10" x 8".
