This is an uncommon and lovely map of Lewis and Harris in the Western Isles. The map is oriented with west at top and is richly embellished with decorative cartouches surrounded by sea creatures and a land surveyor. Dutch text on verso.
A superb example in full original color. There is a small printer's ink smudge in the bottom left corner.
