Re-issue of Delisle's large, handsome map of the island filled with incredible detail including fortresses, churches, abbeys, ancient ruins, and aqueducts. The most prominent feature is the large volcano, Mt. Etna. Includes a large inset of Malta.
Very crisp and clean. Margins slightly trimmed, but still more than adequate.
