A decorative landscape title cartouche nearly equals the size of the map, and shows natives engaged in battle and cannibals preparing their victory feast. The map has a lovely compass rose and two distance scales.

Light damp stain at bottom, with wide margin at right and deckled edge at left. Very crisp, dark impression.
