This handsome sea chart covers the Canary Islands and Madeira with great detail of the coastlines including safe harbors and navigational hazards. Three inset plans show the main harbors at Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Lanzarote. A central compass rose orients the chart with north to the left. Neptune and his consort flank the title cartouche.
A crisp impression with good margins all around and some light damp stains in the map. There are archival repairs to a centerfold separation that enters 2" into image at bottom and to several razor slices along the borders of the insets at top. A portion of the blank margin at top left has been remargined with period-correct paper.
