An attractive map of Aragon focused on Zaragoza, based on the cartography of the Portuguese mapmaker Juan Bautista Labana (1555-1624). The map displays finely engraved pictorial topography. North is oriented to the right. A fine dedication cartouche at the lower left incorporates the scale of miles and a simple strapwork title is at the top. French text on verso.
A sound example with original color. There is some scattered foxing and a few minor creases.
