Handsome map of Asia Minor including Cyprus and the Aegean Islands. A fierce sea battle rages in the Mediterranean along with a curious looking sea monster. The map is embellished with a banner style title cartouche and a surveyor holding the distance scale. Latin text on verso.
Good impression and attractive old color. Faint scattered foxing, mostly in blank margins. Top paper edge slightly crumpled, well away from map.
