One engraved copperplate view, ca. 26,5 x 68,5 cm. (copperplate); margins and tab included 37,5 x 89 cm. (negligible folds). Very rare engraved panoramic view of Seville.

This copy bears the address of the merchant Louis Boissevin, visibly regraved on the original copper. When Boisseau ceased his activity, around 1648, Louis Boissevin recovered a part of his fund which he continued to exploit. Legend in margin under the engraving. Old handwritten title on the back; tab in the left margin and trace of central tab on the back. (Pastoureau, Les atlas français, Boisseau I, n° 46, at the address of Boisseau).
