This very rare sea chart features Crete and surrounding islands. It is decorated with a strapwork and garland style title cartouche, three different scales of miles, two compass roses with north oriented to the right, and is filled with rhumb lines.
There is a tiny hole to the right of Crete, a few faint spots, and some very light marginal soiling.
