This is a striking map of the islands of Sardinia and Corsica. The coastal information is fairly accurate, but much of the interior topography is less precise. The title cartouche features the arms of the Kingdoms of Sardinia and Corsica with their characteristic symbols for the defeated Moors who had once ruled the islands.
A fine impression with light scattered foxing and a 4" centerfold separation at left that has been closed on verso with archival materials.
