This is a handsome map covering the region from the Nile Delta to Lebanon. It shows the extent of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem in Roman times. An elegantly designed title cartouche fills the Mediterranean Sea.

The map has a nice impression on a sheet with a few creases. The margins have a couple short tears.
