This handsome map of the Azores includes an elaborate inset bird's-eye plan of Angra enclosed in an ornate, drape-style cartouche. Detail is limited to coastal place names. The beautifully composed title cartouche features shells, coral, fish, and pearls. The map exhibits the fine engraving style typical of maps from this coveted Venetian atlas.
A vivid impression on watermarked paper with faint toning along the centerfold and two pairs of small wormholes along centerfold that have been infilled with old paper on verso.
