A fine pair of Ptolemaic maps of Northern Africa. Morocco and Algeria on the first, with the Columna Herculis noted, and Sardinia and Sicily included on the second. The maps illustrate a fair amount of imaginary detail with numerous rivers and mountain ranges. Italian text on verso.
Both with full, original margins. The former is a fine, dark impression. Both with toning at centerfold, else very good to fine.
