Lot 166[FLORIDA]
Le Roy de Floride.
Paris: A Paris chez L'Armessin, Rue St Jacques a la Pomme d'Or, proche St Severin, Avec Privit, du Roy, circa 1680. Engraving by Nicolas de L'Armessin , 9 1/8 x 6 3/8 inches (23 x 16 cm); matted and framed. Trimmed within the platemark and inlaid to a larger sheet, small losses to imprint text, small penciled atlas marker in upper right corner, light spotting.

A rare portrait, albeit of a fictional king of Florida, with a variant imprint. Most copies of this portrait bear the Bertrand imprint but the present copy replaces Bertrand's name with L'Armessin, who in 1654 had married print publisher Pierre Bertrand's daughter and took over his stock at his death about 1678.
