Description  
This map shows in detail the British Isles, which has been finely engraved. Derived from Mercator’s wall map of Europe and, unusually shown with north to the right of the page, the depiction of Scotland and north west England is of remarkable accuracy, whilst that of Wales, south western England and Ireland less so. The map is well detailed and adorned with scrollwork, elegant typography, vignettes and other decorative features.
