This rococo style title page is centered on an elaborate fountain. The seaside scene at bottom features the figure of Geography with a large globe and a number of putti engaged in mapmaking and observation. The border is formed by putti with geographical instruments and maps, and is completed by a heavenly scene centered on the muse of Learning.
Some minor creasing, else fine.
