Lovely miniature bird's-eye view of Madrid, showing the Rio Manzares flowing by the city. The view is filled with minutely engraved buildings and countryside, with the foreground showing travelers and forest.
Excellent impression, color and wide margins. Oone short tear on the left repaired on the verso with archival tape.
