The surrounding engravings make this one of the most decorative 19th century maps. The general map is framed by medallion portraits and coats of arms down each side, and is set against a background of statues and allegorical figures with a large group of adorable cherubs engaged in academic pursuits filling the foreground. Map in outline color with engravings uncolored, as issued.
An exceptionally crisp and early impression. One stain in fully engraved area.
