Well engraved map extending from Egypt eastward to include all of the East Indies, Philippines, and Japan. Engraved by Tranquillo Mollo, who collaborated with several French and English mapmakers and published Dirwald's atlas, but his work rarely appears on the market.
Crisp impression. Close trimmed nearly to neatline, as issued. Some spotting and surface soiling. A small tear, expertly repaired.
