Lovely title page with the title emblazoned onto a curtain being hung by two maidens. Above them are two lion heads flanking symbols of the four continents. A globe, atlases and maps lie at their feet. Drawn by Mounet and engraved by Prevost.
There is light soiling and a few minor paper repairs confined to blank margins.
