Quaint bird's-eye view of Cordova. Lettered key identifies important landmarks, including the Stabulum Regnum or King's Stables. The view is surmounted with a banner title held aloft by cherubs and a coat of arms. Latin text on verso.
Several old tape repairs on verso reinforcing fragile paper due to oxidation of the original color. Still a lovely piece deserving conservation with fine original color, flaws not distracting.
