This rare map of ancient Greece depicts the region at the time of Agamemnon, Helen of Troy and Homer. The map extends to show western Turkey. Embellished with an elaborate title cartouche symbolizing the wars in the region, with a vignette of a seaside town and galleons below.
A fine impression with original color, wide margins, and a hint of toning along centerfold.
