Decorative map of Morocco based on Blaeu's map of the same title. It is oriented with north on the right and includes the Strait of Gibraltar. The sea is filled with several different types of ships and the title cartouche is beautifully rendered with a merchant, warrior, camel, oxen and cherubs.
Crisp impression and lovely color. One tiny spot, still very good.
