Frontispiece of the second part of this fine atlas. The title is attached on a separate piece of paper, as is common, and set in an architectural framework flanked by a nun and a musketeer. At top, two peasant girls hold a coat of arms with Mars at center.
Superb original color highlighted in gold. Stains and creases in margins from improper framing, not affecting image.
