Description:
Ptolemaic world map on an oval projecton. This rare woodcut map with its red letterpress is from the first altlas to be printed in two colours. Half of the map of Great Britain is printed on the verso. The edges are trimmed by the binder with slight loss, as is usual with this map, as it was slightly too large for the atlas.
