'Ancien Mexico'. Old colonial Mexico City & Lake Texcoco. SCHLEY 1758 print

CAPTION PRINTED BELOW PICTURE: 'Ancien Mexico [Old Mexico City]'

The map shows "old" Mexico City (in contrast to the adjacent plate which shows the "new" city), still surrounded by Lake Texcoco, but with Spanish colonial style buildings, thus presumably depicting the city some time after the Spanish conquest, but substantially before the publication of the print - which we take to be in the 16th or 17th century
