This fine map covers northwestern England and northern Wales with the Isle of Man. It is beautifully engraved with a moiré patterned sea, elegant calligraphy, a fierce sea monster and a large strapwork title cartouche. Latin text on verso.
There is a faint stain in the lower right border, still overall very good with a sharp impression.
