This is a very beautiful small map of the Canary Islands with an inset of Madeira. The Prime Meridian is shown running along the left border. The map is dominated by a large title cartouche, which is draped in an elaborate garland of fruit.
There is a light damp stain in the upper part of the map and some masking tape residue on the verso paper edges.
