Fine map of the region with good detail throughout. Interesting inset of the coast of Holland in ancient times. Richly decorated with a large title cartouche featuring a large sailing ship and the coat of arms of the Duke of Gloucester, to whom the map is dedicated.
Good impression of hand laid paper with very wide margins. Remnants of hinging tape on back A couple of printer's creases near centerfold. Numerous short marginal tears, well away from map image.
