This nice chart is centered roughly on Iceland and covers from the eastern shores of Canada through Greenland to Scandinavia and Britain. The coastlines are intricately drawn with coastal place names the only detail. A fine chart with decorative title cartouche and rhumb lines.
Issued folding on paper with a bunch of grapes watermark. There is light offsetting and a few spots of foxing concentrated along the folds. A 0.5" edge tear at right has been closed with tape on verso.
