Adolf Erik Nordenskiold Autograph Letter Signed

This lot has closed

Estimate: $500+


ALS in French, signed “A. E. Nordenskiold,” one page both sides, 5.5 x 8.75, November 16, 1887. Interesting handwritten letter concerning an old map printed in France in 1478, in part (translated): "Could French geographers not determine what period the original of this map dates back to? It is so rich in names that it seems to me that such a determination should not present too many difficulties, and this determination could perhaps provide us with the key to determining the origin of the maps of the northern countries that we find in the manuscripts of Ptolemy of the XVth century." In fine condition.
