An unusual map of the Old World that covers most of Europe, Northern Africa and South-central Asia with insets of Greece and the coast of Italy centered on Rome. The sheet is beautifully engraved and filled with ancient place names. Printed on two joined sheets.
A sharp impression on a bright sheet, issued folding with a few minor extraneous creases, a hint of toning along the right-hand fold at top, and archival repairs to a few tiny tears and separations in the top blank margin.
