Title : Carte de la Moldavie dressée sur celle du prince Cantimir. . ..
Map maker : Le ROUGE, R..
Date : Paris, 1770.
Size : 24.8 x 18.7 inches. / 63.0 x 47.5 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :Extremely rare map of the north of Moldavia and the regions today in Ukraine. In top the title Moldavie Septentrionale. Another map of the southern part exists to complement this map, however the engraving style is somewhat different in the way mountains have been done, showing either a different hand or the same hand but later in time !
Sometime after 1711 Prince Dimitrie Cantemir prepared a map of Moldavia, inspired by the 1700 Wallachia map by Cosntantin Cantacuzino. The map was later copied in manuscript by d'Anville (French National Library) and was published in 1737 in Amsterdam (probably prepared for a printed edition of Description Moldaviae which got never printed). This printed version is known from a single copy (French National Library).

The Cantemir map became the base of a number of other maps of Moldavia, including of the map printed by la Rouge in 1770 in Paris.
The title is in lower right corner : "Carte de la Moldovie dressee sur celle du Prince Cantimir", it was a separately issued map and not part of an atlas, making the map very rare. (Ovidiu, Ex Cartographica Transilvaniae - Two other copies known). ¤

Condition : Generally in good condition. Paper slightly age-toned.
