This is a beautiful example of a Renaissance title page with classical mythological figures presented in a beautiful landscaped scene. The female representatives of the continents are gathered with Mercury and a scholar.
Trimmed to the neatline all around and backed with old paper to create new margins. Light staining in the cartouche at bottom with a few tiny chips at the center of the image.
