This superb map of Wales was prepared by Humphrey Lhuyd, an antiquary and philosopher, who is regarded as the first Welsh cartographer. The map is beautifully engraved and richly decorated with sea monsters, putti, a compass rose, and sailing ships. Blank verso.

Nice impression and color with wide original margins and a bit of printer's ink residue near title cartouche. The bottom fold has been professionally repaired, well away from the map.
