Attractive map of Holy and Farne Islands off the coast of Northumberland. Farne Island is shown with the Tower and on Holy Island a fort and abbey are visible. The mainland is devoid of detail except for a few cities and castles. The map is decorative with a strapwork title cartouche and the royal coat of arms.
Minor damp stain in margins and a small tear in the middle of the centerfold, repaired with archival tape.
