An uncommon miniature woodblock map of ancient Greece with charming pictorial topography and many placenames. The sea is filled with sea creatures; a two-tailed mermaid is shown at the top, and the sea monsters at the bottom are being ridden the mythological figures of Poseidon and Arion playing a harp.
The centerfold has some loss that has been reinforced with a paper repair on the verso.
