This is a handsome map of the historical region north of the Black Sea. It is finely engraved to show mountains, forests and cities and locates historical regions. The strapwork title cartouche includes a small vignette featuring soldiers with their fine horses, for which the region was renowned.
Some faint toning and a couple of extraneous creases, else very good.
