Handsome map of Europe showing its ancient political divisions and place names. The map extends to include Iceland and all the lands bordering the Mediterranean. Decorated with a fine title cartouche.
Sharp impression and original outline color. The margins have been trimmed but are still adequate for framing and there is a faint mat burn in the border. There are cello tape remnants on the verso from a previous framing. The tape has not resulted in any staining.
