9.7 x 13 inches
24.6 x 33 cm
Finely engraved sheet with several maps, the largest of which includes Corfu, Malta, Gibraltar, with five smaller maps (including the Ionian Islands) and five lovely vignettes. Sounds busy, but it is a very handsome chart.
Good impression with original outline color plus borders and vignettes well colored in a later hand. A little scattered light foxing, still very good.
