Hand-Coloured Map of The Roman Empire

  • H: 74 cm (29 1/8")
  • W: 94 cm (38")
  • D: 0.5 cm (0 3/16")

Magnificent French 19th Century map of the Roman Empire. 

This map comes from Le Chevalier's 1860 edition of the elephant folio Atlas Universal. The work was engraved by Charles Dyonette and produced by A.H. Dufour in Paris. 

Dufour began producing this atlas in 1855 and its final edition came out in 1870. All contained roughly 40 different maps. 

This print is engraved on copper plate and beautifully hand-coloured. 

Auguste-Henri Dufour (1795- 1865) was a prolific Paris-based map and print publisher. The monumental Atlas Universal is considered one of his greatest publications. 

Charles Dyonette (1822-1880) was also active in Paris, working as an engraver in the mid-late 19th Century. He engraved a host of maps for prolific publishers of the time, with his attention to detail and emphasis on aesthetics leading him to produce some of the most beautiful French maps in history. 

The print measures 57cm x 78cm and has been mounted on card (overall size 74cm x 94cm x 0.5cm).
