    This sheet contains two simple woodblock maps (each 5.9 x 3.4) depicting the island of Strivali at top and the Peloponnese peninsula and surrounding islands at bottom. On a full sheet of Italian text.

Bordone was an illuminator and wood-engraver, working in Venice, when he was given permission by the Senate in 1508 to print maps of Italy and the world. None of those maps have survived and his only remaining works are the maps from his Isolario.

Condition Description: There are four small wormholes in the map of Morea and a light stain in the Strivali map.
