This is a handsome map of the Mediterranean Sea covering from Gibraltar to Greece. The map provides a great deal of information on the countries bordering the sea, both in Europe and Africa. The map is beautifully decorated with Neptune and a sea-god flanking the title cartouche, and sailors, a wind-god and sea-god surround the scale of miles cartouche.
Full original color on watermarked paper with a printer's crease at bottom left, a hint of toning along the centerfold, and marginal soiling.
