Lovely, smaller map of the British Isles with good detail of the major cities and rivers. The Shetland and Faro Islands are included at the top of the map, while a bit of the coastline of France shows in the bottom right corner. The map is decorated with a large title cartouche. Engraved by Antoine de Winter.
Nice, sharp impression with folds as issued. Paper added to extend binding trim at lower right.
