Fine map of the region including the coastline and the cities of Nantes and Rochelle prominently delineated. Richly ornamented with a banner-style title cartouche, the royal arms, a compass rose, sailing ship and a distance scale topped by a wine barrel and flanked by two adorable putti. Dutch text on verso.
Lovely original color. Top fold separation just entering map border, else very good.
