Description: Map. Engraving with original color wash. Image measures 18.5" x 21 3/8".

Comments: Beautiful and unusual map of south eastern Norway including Oslo (here called Christiania), circa 1729. Map is flanked by a stunning mining scene. Illustrated in exquisite detail is the process of metal mining and smelting on the mountainside. Both the vignette and the decorative title cartouche remain uncolored. Minor overall wear, small stain to lower right. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century, including being geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
