This uncommon Austrian-produced map of Iceland is based on Homann's map of 1761, which was in turn based on the previously unpublished Knoff survey. The map locates villages and churches and graphically delineates the mountains, rivers, lakes and forests. Embellished with a decorative title cartouche. Three distance scales.


Condition: A

A crisp impression on a bright sheet with a few minor stains, mostly in the blank margins, and a small hole in the bottom blank margin.
