This handsome map covers the northwestern coast of Greece and part of present-day Albania. The map was drawn by Johannes Wilhelm Lauremberg, a mathematician and historian who produced several atlases of Greece and worked with both Blaeu and Hondius/Jansson. The large title cartouche features a shepherd and shepherdess with their livestock.
Lovely original color with some light toning and foxing.
