This is a reduced version of the classic map of the ancient world based on Ortelius. Europe, Asia, and Africa (as far south as Madagascar) are placed at the center of a much larger oval frame that continues to the Antarctic. The climatic zones are identified. The title is enclosed in a lovely strapwork panel at top.
There are some damp stains in the blank margins.
