This finely engraved large map of Europe features the characteristic detail of this prominent Dutch cartographer. It is richly ornamented with a variety of ships sailing the seas, a compass rose, a sea monster, Europa captured by Zeus in the form of a bull, and several putti holding the title banner aloft. Engraved by Abraham Deur with his signature at bottom center.
A crisp impression with light soiling and archival repairs to a few edge tears and centerfold separations. There is a small wormhole at bottom which has been archivally repaired on verso, with a small portion of the "E" in "Mediterraneum" replaced in facsimile.
