This handsome sea chart covers the Canary Islands and Madeira with great detail of the coastlines including safe harbors and navigational hazards. Three inset plans show the main harbors at Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Lanzarote. A central compass rose orients the chart with north to the left. Neptune and his consort flank the title cartouche.
Good margins all around. There are some light damp stains and the centerfold has been repaired at bottom.
