Very handsome map of Europe that includes Greenland, Iceland & the Arctic Circle. The surrounding engravings make this one of the most decorative maps of the 19th century. The map itself is framed by medallion portraits and coats of arms down each side, and is set against a background of statues and allegorical figures with a large group of adorable cherubs engaged in academic pursuits filling the foreground. Drawn and engraved by Raimond Bonheur and published by A. Combette in Paris.
Condition Description: Original outline color with a couple of minor spots of foxing and very light toning along the edges of the sheet.
