This handsome title page is from a popular English, nineteenth century atlas. The title is enclosed in a delicate vine border with unusual male representations of the four continents in each corner. A finely engraved vignette of Europeans trading in Africa is at center.
Strong impression and fine coloring. A little marginal soil at lower right otherwise fine.
