    A very large and robust engraving on two sheets, each approximately 23.5 x 19", here joined. Covers all of Europe to the Caspian Sea and the Urals in the north, and extends to show part of Greenland, labeled America Setten. Frisland is shown with only a dotted outline, with an adjacent note explaining that the island was discovered by Nicolo Zeno, but that no mariners have ever found it again, and some believe that it now lies below the sea. The map is adorned with very decorative and large title cartouches, as well as a vignette north of Scandinavia that shows fishermen in rowboats harpooning a horned sea monster. A very stunning example of the mapmaker's art.

Condition Description: A nice impression on watermarked paper with a short, archivally repaired fold separation at right and one tiny tear in the right blank margin.
