Very pretty and detailed map of Portugal . Most towns villages and rivers shown.
The work that went into engraving this map is a dedication to the importance of Portugal in the beginning of the Seventeenth century.
The geography is based on Seco Fernando Alvares and it is engraved by Baptista van Doetecum and dedicated to Guido Ascianus Sfortia.
Three title cartouches adorn the map along with an elaborate compass rose, sailing ship, the crest of Portugal, and sea creature.
Very good hand colour
Very good condition.
