This scarce map features all of the Cape Verde Islands with a few place names and a large flaming volcano on the island of Fogo (I. Fuego). The map features a large, landscape-style, title cartouche.
Full original color on sturdy paper with some oxidation of the green pigment and light printer's ink residue. There are several extraneous creases, light soiling, and damp stains confined to the blank margins.
