Two delicately engraved maps of the Philippines and Marianas are on one sheet, each decorated with a beautiful title cartouche. The map describes many place names on the islands, and shows a bit of Borneo at the bottom and some of China's southern coastline at the top. It is further adorned with a very lovely compass rose. Engraved by Antoine d'Winter.
Fine, sharp impression.
