Superb little map of Sicily showing its political divisions and fine detail of topography, cities, towns and villages. The map extends to include the Aeolian Islands. The volcanoes, Aetna and Vulcano (Hiera) are graphically depicted and a small vignette of an erupting Aetna adorns the distance scale.
Chip at paper edge and a minor printer's crease, else fine with a sharp impression.
