Map Episcopatus Dunelmensis Vulgo Bishoprike Durham
This map is a 17th century hand colored edition of the original which was published in 1647.
Blaeu was probably the most important cartographer of his time. This is a beautiful edition of his work.
There is damage on the back therefore this lowers the value.
Asking prices for similar maps are in the range of $500, but actual selling prices are lower. As with any antique/collectible, the item is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Your Map Episcopatus Dunelmensis Vulgo The Bishoprike of Durham is no different.
Legitimate appraisals are usually based on current market value and speculation is frowned upon. That said, this website also serves to help those who wish to learn about the investment potential of collectibles.
It’s my opinion, that early hand colored maps, prints, photographs etc, are undervalued in the marketplace today. While they are mass-produced before they are colored, once colored each is it’s own individual work of art.
Retail price: $325
