Lovely map from one of the last decorative atlases of the nineteenth century. The map is presented on Mercator's projection. It is surrounded by fine steel engravings including vignettes representing the four seasons, allegorical figures of the continents and several mythical figures, Adam and Eve and much else of interest.
Tiny repaired tear at paper edge, overall fine.
