This is a very handsome map of Europe embellished with many ships and sea monsters and three strapwork cartouches. The map extends to include Greenland, the Davis Strait and a bit of Americae Pars Estotilad. The mythical island of Frislandt is prominently shown including several place names.
Lightly toned with original color. Some old damage along centerfold with an old repair on verso. There appears to be a bit of minor loss along bottom fold.
