Splendid sea chart covering the Barent Sea coast from Finland to Nova Zemla with north oriented to the left by two compass roses. The chart is embellished with sailing ships, whaling scenes and an incredible title cartouche featuring a scene of men fighting bears and sea monsters.
Fine impression and original color. Two short tears just entering map, closed with archival tape.
