A handsome map of Valencia detailing the area from the Cenia River to St. Gines and inland to Murcia and Teruel. The map has numerous place names with pictorial depictions of cities and towns. The sea is filled with galleons, a sea monster and a fine compass rose. The decorative cartouche is topped with the coat of arms of the region, featuring a miniature view of the city of Valencia. French text on verso.
An excellent example with a dark impression and wide margins. Some minor marginal toning and faint stains in bottom margin, far from map image.
