London: 1690. unbound. View. Uncolored etching. Image measures 4.75" x 7.75" very good.
Nice view of the Tunis, circa 1690. Shows a ship in the harbor with the fortified town in the background. John Seller (c. 1630-1697) was an English instrument maker and cartographer and in 1671 he was appointed Hydrographer to the King. Seller instigated the first English maritime atlas, in an effort to compete with the successful Dutch maps at the time. This print was published in "A New Systeme of Geography...", circa 1690. A light crease and minor toning along the center indicates original folds. Margins cropped, left border missing from original binding.
