Reduced version of this classic map of the ancient world based on Ortelius. Europe, Asia and Africa as far south as Madagascar are placed at the center of a much larger oval frame. The Climatic zones are marked. The title is in a ribbon style cartouche at top.
Faint damp stains and a minor hole in blank margins, well away from map.
