This large format map of Europe extends from Iceland in the west to the Caspian Sea in the east, and delineates countries and provinces. The large decorative cartouche features a globe at top. Engraved by Barriere. Originally by the Robert de Vaugondy family, this map was reissued by their successor, Charles Francois Delamarche. The map is based on the work of the Robert de Vaugondy family, but was re-engraved by Delamarche to incorporate the latest information gathered by the explorations noted. A table with geographical and statistical information on the region in included at right.
Original outline color on watermarked paper, with an archivally repaired centerfold separation that enters 10" into image at bottom, and a spot in image along centerfold at top. There are some small worm tracks primarily confined to blank margins that have been professionally repaired, with a minor amount of border in facsimile.
