An early map that includes portion of present-day Latvia and Lithuania, in addition to Crimea and the Sea of Azov. Riga and Vilnius are both named, and the map is filled with pictorial representation of topography as well as small tents to represent Tartar camps. Italian text on verso.
A nice example with a little faint toning on centerfold.
