Attractive map of the famous Spice Islands, the source of great wealth to the Dutch who worked so hard at obscuring their true size and location. The map is well detailed showing the important trading ports. Decorative title cartouche, rhumb lines and fleur-de-lis.
Light stains in margins with faint stain on one fold, still very good.
