Exceptional map from one of the last decorative atlases of the nineteenth century presented on Mercator's projection. It is surrounded by fine steel engravings including vignettes representing the four seasons, allegorical figures of the continents and several mythical figures, Adam and Eve and much else of interest.
Several small tears in wide margins with some archival tape repairs.
