Attractive pair of maps covering the Philippines, both with lovely title cartouches. The first map depicts the northern islands of the Philippine archipelago, including Luzon, Mindoro, and the city of Manilla. The map is filled with nice detail throughout (6 x 8.1"). The second map is focused on the southern islands, and includes Mindaneo, Palawan, Panay, and part of Borneo (11.8 x 8.25").
Both very good impressions, with some light offsetting.
